life after shtf

  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I had someone make a comment to me that people in rural areas will be invaded and probably killed by marauding street gangs during a SHTF event. What are your thoughts on the subject. Knowing human nature I believe people will stick to what they know.
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Got to thinking on this - it's safe to assume that most everyone you'd encounter during SHTF is armed. Bad guys, LEO, military, normal guys who were unprepared and have to venture out, even preppers who had an oversight or who are bugging out due to changing circumstances. I assume that pretty...

    how will you deal with beggars? We as a group have been thinking about this problem long and hard. We have decided that the way we are going to handle the situation is this. When and if someone comes begging our standard response will be we have very little and nothing to spare. This is what...

    Who will be your best friend in a post collapse TEOTWAWKI situation? AR-15? Nope. She is more like a girlfriend that wears a lot of makeup. AK-47? Nope. She is a country girl with no makeup. But will work. This one gets the job done. Shotgun? A workhorse that is reliable and a good all...

    Transporting goods and services during a long term SHTF / TEOTWAWKI situation has been on my mind for awhile. In big cities people use large SUVs and trucks as a status symbol. 300+ horsepower, 4 wheel drive, gas guzzler, but has never pulled a trailer or been off the pavement. In urban areas...

    Think the Fit done hit the Shan, There is a lot of folks, but only so many you would include into a little "innermost circle". People that are the "government" and do the schedule, teach them some tactics for defensive and guard duty... What is the Skill SETS?? That would be looked at...

    A few weeks ago my cousins puppies got into the chicken yard where they killed a Golden Wyandotte rooster, buff orpington hen and dominique hen. Two other hens were also injured. Both hens were recovering well, then one of the hens developed an infected spot next on her body next to her leg...

    Not sure if this is the right spot for this, but...Here's the question. What animal do you think would be the most important after SHTF, for food purposes? Something you would raise, something wild? Specifically which one, and why?

    A few days ago I started reading a new book, it's called "War on the eastern front by James Lucas." War on the eastern front is a collection of personal experiences based on diaries from German soldiers. The majority of books I read are non-fiction. This is because I like to know what real-life...
  10. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    In another thread we talked about cattle, in this thread I would like to discuss the good and bad points of goats, sheep and cattle. My wife and I are planning on moving to the homestead; after which I plan on fencing in a 10 - 13 acre field for some kind of meat and milk producing livestock...

    Some kind of new disease has broke out, society has collapsed and no more trucks are rolling. Over the following weeks the power goes out, the water stops running, people stop driving their cars and trucks, friends, neighbors and strangers come around begging for food. The food preps are...

    If there is something about humans that has ensured the survival of the human race, it has to be our level of creativity and our level of innovation. If a man (or woman) has an axe, they can cut trees to build a home. that axe allows them to clear land for crops or livestock which will help...

    Friday night I couldn't sleep. My abdomen was in too much pain. I took pepto-bismol, but threw it up. Saturday I tried to sleep, and was in and out of sleep all day, couldn't eat. The pain was intense. I was worried it might be appendicitis.... I went to the emergency room. After a...
  15. Firearms General Discussion
    While reviewing my 22 long rifle stockpile last night, I realized that I am mostly buying 2 brand names - Federal and 1 box of Winchester. The next couple of bricks I buy will probably be Remington and a box of Winchester. How my preps are setup @ 75% of my ammunition at stored at home. @ 25%...

    was absolute fear and horror. Not for herself, but the safety of her newborn (3 day old) child as some possessed monster shot her and took away her baby. What is this world coming to? I don't know if I buy into the Christian version of heaven, but I am really hoping that this poor woman will...
  17. General Discussion
    Do you have any plans on the continuity of civilization, or are you going the loner route? If so, what do they entail, how many people are you accounting for, et cetera.
  18. Firearms General Discussion
    Hello Forum, I am trying to pick up my basic SHTF firearms, and could use some advice, since it's free and there is a bunch going on in this forum I hope it's not a bother. :cool: I currently have the Ruger SR9c ordered, in black with the extended clip to have the same capacity and make it...

    Hey guys, I just wanted to share a few thoughts about ammo stockpiles. I can't tell you how many times I've seen people post that they've got 50K rounds of ammo, and need more. I've seen various numbers, estimates, and arguments for how much you need, but I wanted to do my own figuring and see...

    I hear a lot about people stocking up on liquor for it's multiple post-EOTWAWKI uses, particularly trading (also as fuel for vehicles, improvised Molotov cocktails, disinfectant, anesthetic, etc). What are some other things that could easily be traded in a primitive setting? I've thought about...
