I'm a gunfighting instructor living in the US Virgin Islands. Grew up in the Mid Hudson Valley of NY where I spent most of my time in the woods. Been into the survival game for most of my life, being a child of the Cold War
It came in handy after living through a Major huricane in '95. No Law for a week (except what law you could enforce yourself) No grid power for 85 days.
But we were in good shape because of the preps we had in place.
