  1. General Discussion
    I wanted to start this translation for a while now, and finally I think I got some time. The whole thing is based on the following thread (in russian), and I want to thank you everyone who contributed there. I am changing the way the...
  2. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    I found this today by chance and thought it was pretty cool that there is a government sensible enough to proactively encourage their citizens to prep, rather than simply sitting back and waiting to clean up the damage.,178922.html It led me to wonder what the...
  3. Urban Survival
    Just found this in a related video from another post on here. This is the kind of stuff that scares me.

    Amen do not underestimate your enemies.
  5. 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...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Good afternoon. To solve a workplace debate factually, has anyone had first hand experience with looters? If so would you mind sharing?
  7. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Came from a friend. Use your own opinion.....
  8. Australia and New Zealand
    Just had a thought the other day. Wondering if Australia has ever had a true break down in law and order in any areas for any length of time. There was the Eureka Stockade, but that was a bloody long time ago now. I've heard that after the bombing of Darwin WWII the corrupt military police...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. Manmade and Natural Disasters Bad weather here in Minnesota today, tornado came through Minneapolis. About 30 injured, 1 dead, lots of property damage to a traditionally poor (many African Americans) neighborhood. Curfew imposed, first time I ever remember this happening in...
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
