prepping for shtf

  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I am concerned about riots after a Trump win. The delusional left brainwashed by leftist main stream media will see themselves as fighting fascism, which we know is a lie. Fascist, socialist and communist use violence to bring about political change. The brainwashed youth are too dumb to...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Lets say you have municipality electricity and natural gas...... Something happens and you are in 'black out', with no gas. What do you think about having a couple of 100lb propane tanks for SHTF? .......
  3. Military Weapons Forum
    What is your SHTF last resort rifle and ammo? At the back of my ammunition storage closet, on the bottom shelf, are two ammo cans filled with 7.62x39. More commonly used calibers are towards the front of the closet - 223 Remington, 9mm, 45acp, 22 long rifle, 30-30 Winchester, 308 Winchester...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    This is something that was only talked about, but here it is in real life. News reports something like 48% of states are battling an out of control pandemic. The United States set a new record of 77,000 new cases in 24 hours. Fascist Antifa (they are the thing they claim to fight against)...
  5. Coronavirus
    According to Wikipedia Texas has the 10th largest economy in the world, and the second largest in the United States. Yet here we are again looking at another lockdown. https://abc13.com/abbott-gov-greg-covid-19-coronavirus-texas/6311684/ It tears at my heart all of the out of work people, all...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Brain storming session, what would you consider important preps between now and leading up to the November 2020 elections? For the sake of discussion, let's throw a resurgence of covid-19 into the mix. I plan on hitting the public hunting lands this fall, maybe doing some camping / hunting...
  7. Coronavirus
    Here we go again - things are disappearing like in the first Coronavirus round. Went to the local dollar general, toilet paper and spray cleaners were getting picked over. Canned goods still plenty in stock. Paper towels still plenty in stock. Last week the side wall was half full of toilet...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I had a coronavirus panic buying reality check. My wife and I made a trip to Beaumont, Texas to take care of a few things. While we were in Beaumont we went by Academy Sports and Outdoors. I grabbed a buggy then headed over to the ammo section, and it was cleaned out. Guys and gals I have...
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    guy posted on another forum apologizes for doubting preppers http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread1265029/pg1 exerpt: "Ladies and Gentlemen of the SHTF: I have been totally wrong for many years in my disdain and arrogance for the truth that you were trying to teach us all. We cannot...
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    It seems to be that it is pretty easy to prep for a year or two - referring to acquiring and storing food. Fats, in particular are the challenge for lts food. For a long term scenario it is more practical to consider starting a homestead? - maybe not be 100% self sufficient but mix the...
  11. Coronavirus
    Rather than saying what we got right about the next plague (Coronavirus), let's talk about what we got wrong. By discussion what we got wrong then hopefully we can work on those short comings. I was wrong about transmission rates. I expected the next plague to travel the world much faster...
  12. Coronavirus
    They Had a Good Laugh ... Until ... Way back when Obama was looking like he would get a second term, I began to stock up on things. I didn't become a "prepper," but I did decide that I should have some things on hand for a rainy day. I didn't have any particular items in mind, but I thought I...
  13. Coronavirus
    It is happening a predicted over and over and over ... the city folks are running to the country in this SHTF virus situation. Clueless city people are bugging out to the country stripping the stores of anything they can get. In Logan OH. have posted pictures over and over of empty shelves of...
  14. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    My son and I planted the lions share of our garden Saturday morning. For those of you who are interested in gardening I will attempt to supply as much information as I ca on the types of crops that were planted. I wanted several different types of crops: High producing - meaning they...
  15. Coronavirus
    I just learned that for my county, they are predicting that peak for my area will be june or July. I am assuming that this is similar to other similar counties. The good news is NY will be immune by then so there will be plenty of ventilators available that they are done with. I guess this...
  16. Coronavirus
    I knew better but convinced myself I was being crazy. I told myself nothing is going to happen. No one can even agree on what SHTF would be. So I quit prepping, quit thinking about it. Quit posting on here. I checked in every once in a while. posted on occasion but mostly just read what...
  17. Coronavirus
    Just was wondering when I first heard about covid-19. I think it must have been this post on Jan 4th https://www.survivalistboards.com/showpost.php?p=19964718&postcount=1 We had almost 2 months of advance notice to get ready. I remember when kev posted the stores out of stock thread feb 27th...
  18. Coronavirus
    It seems that a lot of so called "preppers" are taking a whole lotta unnecessary risks to get "a few more items", to check stocks in stores, and/or to observe how others are handling things. It just utterly baffles me how someone can consider themselves a prepper yet take unnecessary risks at a...
  19. Coronavirus
    Old Soul posted on The Big Thread (Chinese virus) about the need to: "...vent, need to "chat," need to emote, need to follow all kinds of organic thought trains, and connections" and proposed to let the horses run wild so to speak. "...maybe it would take a LOT of pressure off of the mods...
  20. Coronavirus
    There may already be a thread on this and if there is, will the mods please merge. That said, in light of all the concerns with shelter in place, curfews, mandatory self-quarantine if you are sick or just came back from Walmart, what have you; how are YOU planning to keep physically fit? We...
