    Being against the practice of casual bartering during disasters, I am curious if some proponents of bartering would risk contact with the general public for bartering purposes during a widespread pandemic. With this possibility becoming more of a reality lately, it seems that this is yet another...

    The biggest mistake you could ever make would be to use guns and or ammo for barter or trade. You must never arm your enemy. Anyone you don't know is your enemy!

    Suppose something REALLY BAD happens. (Think Katrina, before relief arrived.) You are in your neighborhood, bugging in, or getting ready to bug out, and you have throngs of looters/ne'er do wells/skels & scumbags eyeing your house or loved ones or car. How would you respond in such a...
