Wait...what ?

can anyone name me a historical disaster (outside of war) where guns were an important part of survival?

not saying it's a bad idea... just saying people seem to focus on the guns an awful lot. (which usually means they've just been reading some distopian sci-fi.)

that said, i have about 4 weeks of food and 2 weeks of water sitting in my basement.

So this feeling of "I need to be ready for (Stuff)" isn't just me... fascinating.

Its good to prep but if poo really gets bad... No matter how much food or water u have, u will still die a painful death. Please give me a favor and look at nuclear facilities in and around US. If poo gets bad and no one to maintain those bad boys, US will be a nuclear waste land where even roaches will not survive.

I'm curious about this map... maps are kinda my thing...

One thing I notice right off is that there are two marks right near me in ILM. Now we do have the Brunswick Nuke Plant right across the river here, but not sure what the other mark is for? Maybe the GE plant in Castle Hayne? They have nuke facilities but no reactor that I'm aware of.

And also I learned how to get water out of my well if the power grid goes down, and my neighbor said I can have access to his natural spring runoff. He is a prepper as well.

Not sure... maybe army base with some sort of underground nuclear reactor?

#1 thing to do is to get out of populated areas. You stay in big cities/towns, you will die.

I agree.

I have a buddy that wanted a Home Defense gun.

I told him to get a Mossberg500 or a Remy 870.

He bought a 900$ AR-15....
Then he bought a SAIGA
Now he wants another AR-15.

I told him the other day I prayed he never gets robbed because he will murder his entire family shooting through his drywall walls trying to hit the robber.

I'm keeping it simple, 9mm handgun, .22 rifle, 12G shotty.

No food? People will eat people. Back in USSR during great blocked by Germans... When Towns ran out of food, family members ate each other.
