How To Get Out Of Handcuffs

Survival Skills

One thing we all probably don’t do a good enough job of prepping for are the most likely scenarios for both pre & post societal collapse.

For example… ever watched season 1 of the Colony?  Very cool show, but in that show they had to do some “Urban Foraging”.  They had to break into an old semi, where they found some rotting pigs, which they were actually able to process the fat from and create bio-diesel… from other scavenged parts.  If an EMP or Solar Flare hit our system and left a lot of dead cards on the road, I could see that being very useful.

If you were thinking that you’d just be holed up at a retreat picking people off at 100 yards then you’d be a little un-prepared.

Another scenario would be thinking that you would only have to pull security around your retreat where you would be easily supplied.  But what if it turned out you needed to know how to patrol the woods around your home as an area you thought no-body would be in starts to fill with starving refugees?

Or what about having to assault a building?  Until we shot our Tactical Training DVD I’d never realized it might be critical to survival, especially if gangs started to take over key structures and facilities near your home.

And I could go on and on.

The point is that we don’t know.

That’s why I wanted to share this video with you.

If you’d lived in Nazi Germany, learning how to break out of some handcuffs might have come in handy.  With recent political events tipping the hand of how some police are already behaving in our pseudo-Tyrannical state, this video may prove more useful to you one day then you realize.

Of course, for those prying NSA eyes reading this, I am not advising anyone do this while they get arrested for drunk driving; this is for Tyrannical/Societal collapse scenarios.

Oh… and one more thing.

These guys at do some other pretty advanced training that you should check out.

    One of the best things about The Colony is how many things they did *wrong*. I don’t know how many times I screamed, “CLOSE THE FREAKING GATE!” to the Louisiana group, or how many times I yelled at the LA group for being stupidly compassionate even though their supplies were dwindling. I could go off on a tirade about all the stuff my husband and I picked out while watching both seasons. The good thing, though, was the conversation it struck up between my husband and me as we compared notes on what we’d do differently, how the groups’ their differing backgrounds both benefited and hindered each group (both between the members themselves and between the two groups–for instance, the Louisiana group, for the most part, was more blue collar while the LA group was more white collar), and I definitely keep those lessons learned handy in the back of my mind should I ever end up in a situation like that. Having said that, it’s easy to say, “I would NEVER do something that stupid!” whilst not actually being there, but we’ll never know until it actually happens.
