Hi I am Johnny aka Grimm from the Bug Out Boys youtube channel. When I am not out filming the videos I am usually out performing on my violin with my bands.
I got into being self reliant one day when I was sitting on my back porch and looked down into the woods and asked myself if I could go down there now and survive with just what I have in my pockets. Did I have the tools and skill to make a fire or shelter. All the answers were no so I decided to do something about it. I created the youtube channel to document it and hoped that it would help others seeing my failures and successes. I love being outdoors and I love learning new skills and trades. I am also looking forward to sharing thoughts and ideas with fellow like minded survivalists as well as hopefully contribute a few of my own.

Just wanted to share the YouTube channel that we have been working on for awhile. Always interested in constructive criticism so we can make it better and ultimately get better ourselves. Hope you enjoy and feel free to say hi.

This is how it looked when we started this journey 7 years ago. Talk about a blank canvas! Field was being leased to a farmer who raised tobacco, soy and wheat. There were chemical burns in the field from the pesticides and herbicides he used. I plowed up the whole field that first summer and didn't find a single earthworm. Different story now. And our livestock was critical to rehabilitating the soil.

Smurf, show them a bunch of articles like this one.  Good guys have plenty to worry about.

Police Raid Berwyn Heights Mayor's Home, Kill His 2 Dogs
The gist of it is a package of pot was delivered to his house accidentally.  SWAT responded.

I don't expect to find the stats, but I wonder if an innocent person is more at risk of being shot during an armed home invasion, or an mistaken no-knock raid.

If I tumble out of bed in my PJs in response to my front door being rammed open, I could be holding a combination of phone/flashlight/firearm.  I'm also not likely to be completely aware, with compromised reaction time. So when verbally ordered to "drop the weapon" that small delay of a half yawn or "huh?" would likely get me shot.

Reminds me of police "no-knock" raids.  When I've brought this up with police officers I know personally, they assure me that I'm a "good guy" and have nothing to worry about.
