    Phil and Andrew invite Trek from MDFI back on the show to talk not about prepping, but about the search for answers surrounding Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, some of Trek's experience with the men that secure our border, and the situation for people on both sides.

    Phil and Andrew catch up after Phil's low key family vacation, Phil blows off steam about all the latest hoopla on social media, and the boys talk a little bit of bugout from Phil's point of view having just come back from a 600 mile trip with the family.

    Fernando Aguirre, author of The Modern Survival Manual and Street Survival Skills and fellow podcaster, joins Phil and Andrew for a lengthy talk about something Phil has only been able to talk about through historical footnotes and economic theory: What does an economic collapse look like from the ground level. How does a country collapse? What parallels do we see between Fernando's home and our own? And how does one prep for a life where money loses value, poverty and unemployment skyrocket, and violent crime becomes commonplace?

    Trek from MDFI joins us for a follow up to “Can I Shoot, Should You Shoot?” to talk about recent police use of force incidents, intermediate use of force, and the St. Louis homeowners confronting protesters. Phil, Andrew, and Trek all leave the emotions at the door and try to discuss these situations from a standpoint of legality, morality, and common sense.

Based lolbertarians

For the most part, they look at things objectively and logically, which pisses everyone off from every side of the political spectrum. 10/10. Also guns

ArgoJason ,

Trek should apologize

You let Trek ignorantly attack the riot victims in St Louis. His condescending arrogance, ignorance of the facts, petty personal attacks and lack of empathy disqualify him. I have listened to three of your podcasts when he was a guest and the first time I really thought he was a total blow hard. The second time Trek was better and I thought maybe I was wrong about him. Well, first impressions are often right and my first impression was correct, he’s full of himself.

Prepper or Hoarder

I truly enjoy listening to Phil and Andrew. I not sure if I am a prepper but have always been a hoarder by nature. I get some good ideas and enjoy the firearms talk. I also enjoy Phil being on the Reloading podcast. Keep up the good work guys 👍.
