looting after shtf

  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    2020 has been a unique year with Coronavirus, black lives matter protest, tearing down monuments... etc, we have a unique opportunity to witness a wide range of events. Up until this point I felt humanity was inherently good. I thought that when the time came we as a society would band...
  2. Coronavirus
    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...

    Amen do not underestimate your enemies.
  4. 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...
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Today I heard of a new group called Predators. The largest one in my state is in Raleigh NC. These guys are already going to prepper conventions and trying to recruit. When the SHTF they plan on causing trouble. Am I behind the times and just don't know about these people or have they been...

    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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. Polls and Surveys
    What do you think the best caliber weapon to have would be in a SHTF situation? i say 5.56x45 NATO due to its use by LEO and Military.
  11. 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.
  12. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    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...
  13. 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...
  14. Urban Survival
    The Reality of SHTF Weaponry for the Newly Awakened United States Citizen Many of us have examined and debated the SHTF scenarios to point of mental exhaustion and I wanted to try and create the most comprehensive and detailed analysis of the topic for the ‘Newly Awakened’; city dwellers who...
