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.



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.

what's happening in urban areas?



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.

Roving bands of cannibals.



Nah on a serious note, most cities only have 2 weeks of non-panic-horded food.
People would get hungry fast.
Also looters, etc

Nuclear facities needs constatant maintenance. If nuclear reactors overheat, they will go boom. They cannot be unsupervised.

My folks have 100+ acres in Rural Eastern NC.

Lots of wild game and pig farms/farm land.
If I can make it there, with my select few people in the loop, we can do ok I think.
