Hey everyone! I am a new to the site. Originally from Texas somehow ended up in central florida. I have recently started prepping, was watching the news one night saw how screwed up things are here and around the country. Got to talking with a guy at work and decided being a mindless sheep who would be in a world of crap if SHTF was not for me. In the last few months I have purchased an AR-15, an XD-45 and have a good start on my BOB. During this process discovered this site. I was excited to find I'm not the only person who thinks this way. I have found several good ideas here and learned I was on the right track. Hope to get to know some people in the area and across the country. Hopefully things never go south but if they do, better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it!
