  1. NYC Area Unrest/Chaos

    It's starting to look bad. Windows are being boarded up, the people who can get out are getting out, 1/6 of NYPD is calling in/sick and their numbers are dropping fast, medical workers too, the city gov is becoming extremely desperate and authoritarian just as its ability to exert power...
  2. Do you really believe street gangs can take over a rural area during SHTF?

    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.

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...
  4. Trespassers scouting bug out location

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    A few days ago I was walking along the creek that is the property line between my land and the timber company land.

  6. What I did to keep predators away from my chickens (kinda crude).

    Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Months ago I had a problem with several raccoons. I trapped them and I haven't had a problem with them since. I haven't seen a raccoon, fox, or coyote near my chickens since. I've heard some in the field right behind me, and in the fields in front of me. But they don't seem to come close...

  8. 5.56 and .223 in a american shtf situation

    Military Weapons Forum
    Im new here to the forum, so I figured I'd ask a question that I've had for about a year now.... It seems that a lot of the complaints from Iraq and Afghanistan are coming from troops that are reporting that the 5.56 doesn't have enough stopping power, sometimes taking 2,3,4,5 shots to stop the...

  14. Looters?

    Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Just an example of how little it takes to start looting, there is a tanker fire in Lincoln CA (Just north of Sacramento). Residents (around 10,000) have been evacuated from an area .5 mile radius of the fire. Looting has started there already. I live only about seven miles from Lincoln and I'll...
  15. Main SHTF rifle in .223?

    Rifle Forum
    i am on a serious budget and would most likely have to sell a couple of guns to get this (ones im not needing). My friend has a Savage bolt action in .223 that i would also like to get and it strikes me as a great compromise for a main SHTF rifle. it is accurate out to my farthest range, which...
  16. Important insights and considerations.

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm watching No End in Sight at the moment and I've gotta say that it's a very interesting documentary. I'm not interested in discussing the politics or the war in Iraq here. But what happened in Iraq when the Iraqi government was effectively knocked out by the US forces is the interesting...

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    This may be a generalized question, it may be more specific to myself. But this has been bugging me for a few weeks now. Given the... impermanence of relationships, how do you decide how much information is too much information to disclose to people closest to you? I think everyone wants to...

  20. .223 or .308 for survival scenario?

    Rifle Forum
    if a long term shtf/teotwawki/without rule of law/etc occured, would you preferred a .223 or a .308 in a bolt rifle? it should be capable of self defense, but to be honest i think it would see most use for hunting for food.
