  1. Firearms General Discussion
    :mad: My friend was staying at the hospital with his wife dieing of cancer. He came home the other evening and his money and med's and 25 firearm,s some his great grand dad,s. One shotgun alone booked for three grand. People in this area are getting tired of the fricking thief's. It takes a long...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I think the title says it all. Post-SHTF, what type of equipment will raiders have? Is it possible (even remotely), that a very large, very well-supplied, well-organized, well-led, and well-armed group of raiders could take over military equipment, say, tanks and artillery? Theoretically...
  3. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I wanted to share this with everyone here to give some balance to our discussions. Too often we expect a total meltdown in society following a disaster. And it's great that we are prepared for that. We prepare for the worst and are proud of it. But let's also keep things in perspective. Just as...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Went out to my parents Sat. to do some shooting to fine tune my .243 for a ram hunt I'm going on this coming weekend. I even dug my compound bow out, the first time I have tried to shoot it after my shoulder surgery a few years back. Long story short I went home and started watching some...

    I have been trying to find examples of looting happening in Japan after this recent crisis, but have been so far unsuccessful. I know it is still early in the grand scheme of the crisis, but the Reuters feeds only seem to show neighbors helping to clean up their neighborhoods, and the JGSDF...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Since the cold war local, state and federal government has built rural shelters for the politicians and their key civil service buddies. They have always been stocked with several years worth of supplies and I assume that many are still being freshly stocked every year. The goal seems to be to...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    You might be a wolf if: -you think a major disaster is a good opportunity for you to get some new stuff. -you know you don't have to prepare for anything b/c you can alway go get some food from your neighbor. -you carry a gun, but only in case someone makes you mad. -you don't know how to...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I was just listening to our local sheriff's dept radio traffic - owner came home to find his house ransacked. After checking the only thing taken was food.:( Things are beginning to get bad. Last week a friend who is a Hwy Patrolman watched a couple from out of state pull in to another...
  9. Controversial News and Alternative Politics
    Okay, so I guess my post was deleted. Not sure why, I think it's important that we discuss the mindsets of looters and know what to expect. I'm not going to repost what was in the thread as I'm sure that's against some forum rule, but I did want to open this back up and finish on our thoughts...

    Its not looting if you leave a note. (Updated pg4) It ain't looting if you leave a note. :thumb: Remember, this doesn't mean breaking into an occupied home. It refers to a time when tshtf and places are abandoned, etc. So what's the first place you'd leave a note? Me? The veterinary...
  11. Books, Movies & Stories
    I'm reading a book called "Patriots" right now by James Wesley Rawles. There is no mention of scavaging, or mining. But there is mentioning of looters, and how they are refered to is that they are basicly the scurge of all man kind. They are the root of evil. I just dont get it because this is a...

    This is the 2010 Neighborhood Anti looting Drill, it went fine ,LOL
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Just a quick question here- How many of you on this site would resort to looting and ransacking when SHTF? Honestly? We are always telling each other (and being told) to prepare for these types of people after TEOTWAWKI, but who among us would seriously consider joining their ranks?
  14. Rifle Forum
    I own several rifles in .223. They are fun to shoot. I would not shoot a deer with one. I would always choose something larger. So, I ask myself (after TEOTWAWKI) why would I stake my life and the lives of my loved ones on a round with the following limitations? - Marginal kill power for...

    Chile is largely a modern society with economic conditions that are excellent by Latin American standards. Surely "looting" would not be a problem of the middle class in such a civilized, westernized country... Think again... Post-quake looting challenges Chile's perceptions of social...
  16. Urban Survival
    It seems that we always have a thread running about scavenging in the cities after a SHTF type crisis. These threads are dominated for the most part by two mindsets. The first fantasizes that the city is going to somehow be magically devoid of people. The second group realizes that the cities...
  17. Urban Survival
    I read this today and wanted to pass it on. When in any type of SHTF scenario, the looters might join together to form a group. You might be defending your house/family/preps against a group not just a single person everynow and then...

    Chileans protect, feed themselves after quake It is getting bad there now, see link below to the AP article: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100303/ap_on_re_la_am_ca/lt_chile_earthquake
  19. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Chile could be a good example of how looters here will behave when the collapse comes. I have been glued to any news clips that discuss looters and the Chilian government deals with them.
  20. General Discussion
    http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/world/2010/02/28/looklive.chile.looting.translate.cnn?hpt=C2 Interesting Just one day after the earthquake looting has already begun! 24 hours in and the fabric of human civilised society has broken down and its survival of the fittest.
