An impressive blog with standout articles on DIY activities in areas like gardening.  Check out the articles “getting rid of aphids” and “the making of moonshine.” Since, our team doesn’t have extensive knowledge of the “white lighting” we found that article the most interesting.

Arms Bearing Citizen is a great website. Mainly because most survival sites list a few gun reviews and move on to the next thing. But happily ABC does not do that. They have specific reviews on rifles, handguns, gun safes, tactical optics, and more. When a website puts that much detail into each category we just have to stop and say….”Job well done… Arms Bearing Citizen”
