Home Defense Systems

Rex Fate will present an outline of the topic for 30 minutes or so, and we can discuss for another 90 minutes. Rex is a building contractor and prepper. Samples of bullet resistant walls will be on hand, and methods of affordably building "less than lethal" and actual cover will be discussed. Classroom #2 near the west members entrance.

    That's 'cause you were prepared (and the "star") and everyone was really impressed with the "field work" you had done.

    Really enjoyed the meeting, and fielded some great questions! Thanks to the large number of attendees, thanks to Ray for bring folks from South Sound Preppers, thanks to Dana, and thanks to all the folks at West Coast Armory. The room was quite large, which gave us room to lay out the ballistic samples and to spread out the six tables of people. Chumley had great input too, because of his considerable experience. Everyone was very considerate and thoughtful in their questions and answers. What a great group! Can't wait till next time!

    It was interesting, I learned a few things, and will keep percolating ideas to fit my own set-up. Thanks!

    This is what I built the wall around my house out of.

    So you are prepared to feed yourself for an extended time. Disaster strikes, and others start coming to get your stores. They are armed. What do you hide behind when they are shooting at your house? Kinda important at that moment, isn't it? Let me show you what I know of your options. Tell me what you know!

    Room capacity is 20, yikes. I will go ahead and close the meetup RSVP in the south sound preppers for this event.

    Room capacity is 20, and we have invited all of south sound preppers too. Maybe bring a friend, but we don't want to squeeze out anyone in our meetup group. thanks for asking!

    What's the capacity of the room reserved? Thinking about telling a few people and maybe posting on my fb page if that's alright.

    I am an organizer of another prepper meetup and I was wondering if I could post this meetup in my group?

    WOOHOO - shot my samples yesterday! Come see the surprising results on Sunday 6/23. Interesting ballistic tests on bullet resistant glass, plywood, and kevlar fiberglass rigid 3/8 inch panels. Hint - I have a new respect for 12ga slugs, and no respect for plywood barriers!

    I've heard a 9mm bullet won't penetrate 1" plywood. Is that regular plywood or OSB or either?

      How are you getting away with firing a weapon in King County? I was told it was illegal.

      June 5, 2013

    • Rex F.

      Fair question! I drive to Kittitas County. Shooting on BLM land there is legal.

    well this seems like a good time to check out what you guys have going on. Looking forward to it.

    I'm new to meetup but I've been prepping about a year.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
