  1. Military Weapons Forum
    You're scavenging through an abandoned house when suddenly you hear an engine and wheels screeching around the corner. The car comes to a stop and you hear doors shut. Two armed men approach the house and spot you. Gun fire erupts, you take cover and begin to return fire..... In a TEOTWAWKI...

    So this will be my first post and I hope it helps the new guys out there just now getting into a preparedness mindset. This post will revolve around an Urban/Suburban enviornment. If you're new to this and like most people you've got a million items on your list and you're wallet is getting less...
  3. Urban Survival
    I have to commute in and out of NYC each workday. The lion's share of the distance is done via commuter rail; then a 20-minute walk from the station to my office. If things get bad enough, then just not showing up for work is easy enough. However, from all of the real-life experiences I've read...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Too many variables to be able to answer. Nobody knows what's going to happen, or to what degree, or even what the effects of it will be. The other variables are going to involve the people in the area. Whether the gangs are organized enough, and whether the residents are going to be able to...

  7. New Member Introduction

  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Not urban, not rural..... Picture a small city about 20 miles outside of Chicago. About 50,000 people big. Typical 1/4 acre lots, 2 story homes, full basement. Pretty good neighbors all around me, but I doubt they will be prepared. What do you guys see as advantages and disadvantages of...
  9. Urban Survival
    OK, so I live in the suburbs about 25 miles north of Dallas on the edge of rural/suburban in a average two story four bedroom home with an average yard and 2 car garage and no basement. I have been considering options for a perpetual food source since preps will only last for so long if...
