Default Looters, how to make them pass you by

Ok guys here we are, after the fact, whether it be hurricane, earth quake, nuke strike on washington, what ever it might be.

You have some of your family or friends staying with you because you have a generator and a big wood burning bar-b-q pit. You are the only person in the whole neighborhood with fresh meat and a way to cook it. NOW, how do you keep it??

This is what I did after Hurricane Rita passed through my area

Have a couple of people stay up late at night. Have an outdoor fireplace in the front yard. The members that stay up late can have a nice camp fire right there in the front yard. If the power is off, everything will be dark, except your yard. Looters are criminals, and most of them do not want to go where they can be seen - kinda like roaches.

Have the blinds to your house open so people driving around will see you up and moving about.

Spread your cars and trucks out, park what ever spare vechiles you have in your neighbors driveway.

Do not cook inside, use your coleman stoves or bar-b-q pit in the front yard where people can see you. Make it look like you are having a party and having a good time - which you should be.

Be seen with a rifle or shotgun in hand or slung over your shoulder. Long arms are easier to see then pistols. It would be quit a sight for a looter to see you with an AR-15 over your shoulder, while standing at your grill cooking some steaks.

That's good info, thanks.

I did read and see video of people that hid out in their houses during Katrina only to have armed confrontations with looters/thieves. Safety in numbers is obvious.

Good idea Kev. Looters are the scum of the earth preying on mans misery during hard times. Rule 762 parragraph 3008/ 556 should be preached.

For me that would be paragraph 762 subsection 51, cross referenced to Part 308. Volume 40. And also cross referenced to version 556.

And string em up a 1/4 to 1/2 mile away with a sign about this is what happens to looters.

Your comment made me think of this...

Cops looting in Walmart after Katrina. Proof that the law will not be there for you WTSHTF. They will be shopping for shoes.

Oh yes they will. They might call for backup first though. Remember, when face-to-face, the sidearm has the advantage. This is why armed teams win.

I think what I would do is form a little crew with the adjacent neighbors and hunker down in one house. That would make 6 men of age to handle a long rifle. I would probably try to work around the idea of pooling resources and food.

For security, I would have 2 or 3 people on duty outside at night. I would put one on the roof with a night vision monocle and a rifle, maybe a spot light too. Then if they spot anybody coming they can shine them. A bull horn would be handy too for offering warnings.

I'd probably go to the beach and get tons of sand to place round the perimeter to see if anyone has been snooping around. I would also place those trip wires which fire a shotgun shell too. I'm also considering getting barbed wire to place on top of the fence, if my resources allow. I'd also board up the windows.

Too bad I don't have any tactical training. I've never even fired a gun . I'm working on that though. I plan to learn asap.

My dad has 2 shotguns, a 30-06, and a .22. I'm planning to buy a semi auto rifle of the .223 cal.

I also forgot some tactics i might emply on night duty.

1. talking into a walkie talkie. people would hear you talking from far away, yourself being in a concealed location.
2. cigarettes. they put out a smell from a far distance. and from closer up, someone could see an ember moving about. they would presume you are active and aware. you're night vision would still be fine.
3. playing an instrument like a harmonica or a quiet ukelele or something.

My plan definitely has some weak spots I'm sure. Good thread btw. I love hearing everyones ideas!

Which house would you use to hunker down? I am very peculiar about who I let into my house. I also wouldn't want to abandon my house to be guests at some nazi's pad. Fortunately, it will never come to that.

If you take a look at how those tripwire shotgun blank firing devices work, you'll know how to make a bunch of other devices that will keep them out of an area instead of just alert you to their presence.

LESSON #1 -

30-06 and .22 are rifles, not shotguns.
