Theres a ton of useful information covered in this 76 page word document, much of it you will one day find useful.
Here is the introduction:
I’ve been traveling and working around the world as a writer all my life and have seen the world go from relatively safe in the 40s and 50s to incredibly dangerous today. Early in my travels I began collecting US and foreign government and non-government security documents for personal use on the premise that if anybody knew all the tricks of the personal security trades it was government & NGO agencies. And it’s true – everything that anybody needs to know about how be secure at home or on the road has been published at one time or another by the government. Problem is that none of this critical information is available in one place; in fact, most of the information is difficult to impossible to find even through the internet.
That’s why I’ve taken the best of the information I've been able to find over the years, tried to edit it for clarity, and brought it together in one place as an electronic resource for easy access. This handbook contains information gathered from the government military, diplomatic and intelligence agencies, international non-governmental organizations, and even foreign governments including Israel and the UK. In short, I’ve tried to include as much as possible of what I think may be helpful about how to guard your person, home, family and property from the kind of violent chaos that all agree will follow an apocalyptic financial and social collapse of the US.
While I've lived and worked in a lot of different places, I'm a writer, not a security expert. - although I've been in some situations where I've wished I knew a lot more than I did then! That's why I've spent a lot of time the past few years preparing my home and property for what I believe is the coming breakdown of American society and the accompanying descent into mob rule and rampant criminality directed against anyone that owns any property perceived as worth having. That's also a big part of why I wrote this Handbook - to gather the knowledge of experts, usually writing anonymously in the public domain, and to create a useful resource for individuals and families who either want to create a more secure environment in their present home, or who are thinking about relocating to a more secure environment before TSHTF.
Please use this resource as a beginning reference point for your own research into how to make your home, yourself, and those you love more safe and secure in the increasingly likely event of society-wide breakdown of the rule of law. I could sling around a lot of self-protective lawyer talk here about not being responsible for any decisions you make based on this information but let's just say that the following information is offered in good faith but that each of us is the ultimate arbiter of our own life and fate. Please use this information as a starting point for your own research and don't just assume that it is either complete or accurate, or that it applies in your particular case. If you can't agree with that please disregard everything from this point forward. I wish you good fortune and safe passage through the terrible storms that many, including me, believe lie just ahead.
