Daily Prep Episode 205: New Job With Desert Tactical Arms

As some of you know, I recently began working with a firearms manufacturer in Salt Lake City.

Desert Tactical Arms, manufactures extremely high end precision rifle systems for long range shooters. Military snipers, law enforcement officers, and in some cases hunters.

While I value the experience that I’ve had getting to learn about and shoot the guns, I do recognize that just because something has a trigger doesn’t mean it’s part of prepping. I feel that such is the case with long range shooting.

While it does have some practical preparedness application in the area of hunting, most long range shooting is done as part of a tactical operation or just plain old sport.

Having said that, if you guys ARE interested in long range shooting, Desert Tactical Arms does make some pretty incredible rifles.

Additionally, they saw some of my videos on The Daily Prep, and have asked me to jump on camera occasionally to contribute videos to their YouTube channel as well.

    I agree with the whole “hobbyist” mentality. I feel we should all in prepped world be a utility player or “jack of all trades” so to speak. However, on the turn of the coin, I feel if a certain thing appeals to your natural skill then you should exploit that and master in that as well as knowing basics of all other “prepping concentrations”. I feel it’s beneficial to know your strength and meet others that share the interest in prepping but master in a different concentration. That way it establishes a friendship, prepping partner, mini group of people that all have a skill and benefits from the group as does the group benefits from the individual.

      yeah you’re right about the “specialization” aspect. That’s what’s lent itself to surplus and the advances in society that we have today. So maybe in a larger group, you could afford to have 1 person that’s just the food storage recipe guru, another person that’s just the gardener, and another that’s just the shooter. To me it seems like so many people will just be with their families however that I hate to see folks sacrifice a core competency because something else is just more fun….kind of a good balance debate though I think.
