Doomsday Preppers

114 posts in this topic

Me personally, I think I'm ready... Aside from my firearms, I keep enough junk in my truck that I could survive out of it for a few weeks if I had to, but my more secure plan involves bugging in at home...

In the gun discussion... You'd be best served having multiple types/calibers of guns... Not only can you use any ammo you get, but different guns serve different purposes... You'll need a rifle for hunting, long distance security... a handgun for personal security... and a shotgun for personal security/defense as well as hunting...

The things I haven't done yet that I need to get on with are getting my handguns (have the permits, just need to buy), getting my CC, and getting some reloading supplies and teach myself how to do it...

I subscribe to a magazine called Complete Survivalist, and I would recommend that to anyone who is serious about such topics as these... Also, Mother Earth News (yeah I know, libtard tree hugger derp derp) has some pretty valuable information on homesteading topics, which is pretty much what you'll be needing to do when the economy/country collapses...

Well I really liked the show and totally agree with teh Kurb about the gal. She's done for.

A bug out bag is very important. But in order to not overload it, it should be designed for a few days of travel in order for you to get to a safe place. Food, water, rope, a siphon hose, bolt cutters and weapons.

I am not a "doomsdayer" per se but we have had our place for a while now. Not getting into details but it resembles the bunker guys place using Sea Trains (con-Ex) buried on our property. A few interconnect but have provisions to secure each one individually. I have worked on it for the last 10 or so years and an ex-wife tried to sue me so she and her new bf could go there in case anything happened.

Weapons are varied as to be able to use ammo found along the way but we don't plan on going anywhere for a bit in case something happens. FWIW, given the reason for needing weapons pretty much eliminates any "legality" issues IMHO.

I have a diesel generator and fuel, perimeter security (electronic and "gifts from my Army buddies"). Plenty of food, water and sanitation supplies. We will hunt what we need.

Everything is underground and my sons and I did all of the heavy equipment and construction work so nobody would know. If you saw it today, you wouldn't give it a second look.

I wasn't thinking nuclear attack so I don't have any real oxygen purification stuff as I doubt a nuke attack would happen anywhere near me. It is mainly for the collapse of civilization.

I have a family farm about an hr from wilmington, which I'm guessing would be a 3 day walk.

Mostly isolated, lots of farm land, lots of water, etc etc.

I'm going to start with firearms. Then move into seeds/gear/etc as I can.

Kinda hard to get to hardcore into this stuff when I just got laid off :)

why a shotgun? you'd be much better off to have the range of a AR or AK

I have to admit that an AR would be very close to the top of my list as well. Its a very good rifle for both defense with accurate, rapid fire and is more applicable as a hunting rifle than would be a shotgun.

as far as the shotgun is concerned, you have to consider the shooter's proficiency as well. A shotgun would be a much better option if, for instance your wife or maybe your child had to pick up the weapon for they're own defense. With a shotgun, you just aim in the general direction and fire to hit your target. It takes a higher skill level for someone to correctly aim a rifle and hit a target.

almost forgot... you can also aquire a shotgun shell reloader, and some supplies, and be able to make your own ammo if need be as well. gotta go with the shotgun.

I would really like to have a handgun, but need to wait until I have a job. Currently the only thing I have is a respirator that probably looks cooler than actually provides some sort of safety. Hoping to stock up on some things once I become employed.

    • Funny, but the thing I noticed was that he considered himself a fullback---(The Panthers are one of the few teams that used a FB...) when he had never played.  I am sure the Panthers told him that, but I wondered if that was HIS intent. I think this is another "Swiss Army knife" player.  He is a FB with TE experience.  Can he catch?  Can he slide out to a wing or even line up as a TE?  Throw him into an offense that has McCaffrey (who can catch passes) and Samuel (who can run the ball) and these three players are capable of lining up as TE/RB/WR, FB/WR/WR, TE/RB/RB, etc. I am not suggesting that he is going to line up as a TE as Olsen does, but Brockel or even Dickson Hbacking could be in the cards for him.
    • He has fumbled one single time. I don't think he's a lock. However if Fozzie is expendable then of the current guys I suppose he makes it.
