Hi. Interesting thread. I live in Europe where the gun laws are much tighter. However, with this in mind and the practicalities of obtaining or
manufacturing firearms ammunition, I would rely on reusable means of weaponary. By a good crossbow or recurve. Get a powerful hunting slingshot for
small game and fowl. Get a fishing rod. Buy a good qulaity hunting knife and folding lock knife.
Go to ann outdoor shop and buy a matchless fire set. And for the home, may I suggest, if budget allows, come off the grid and use solar power,
manufacture a solar box cooker (plans can be found at the Mother Earth website). Water filters, or make your own.
I suppose I am lucky as I live in a rural area and there is an abunda´nce of wild life and fruit etc.
Get on the web and look up ebible plants and mushrooms. People 100s of years ago did not have supermarkets and they survived. So can you.
Oh, an additional point. If you have to leave your home, and I hope you do not, be prepared and look up ancient construction methods, roundhouses,
teepees and such. They can be made with little effort and skill and are very comfortable.
Johnny Wisemuller's book. The SAS Survival Guide (I think it is called), is full you useful informatiom.
It may never happen but, it just might, one day, so be prepared. It hurts no one and is good for character building. Treat it more as a hobby and it
will be more fun.
Good luck to you all.
