I got off the mountain and found a bar.
The truth is your better off with a ghillie suit...
Take it from an old War Horse Retired Marine when I say on your own and faced with the possibility of a protracted firefight its better to vanish then stand your ground. you never want your head stone to read, "He put up a valiant effort but in the end was overcome by superior numbers"!

In a survival situation, the last thing you want to do is fight. Run away, if at all possible, and hopefully not fight another day...that would seem to be the credo to live by, if TPHHTF...
