We've got the weapons, the bug out bags AND we can last a month or two.
So if I had seen the poll (which I missed), I wonder what I would have answered.

The results of our latest poll are in, and after 14,942 by members and visitors, about 60% of you have some level of preparation or planning in place to respond when the manure hits the fan. But a stunning 39% would be forced to survive on whatever is in the kitchen.
Personally, I like the barter approach. After a few weeks of uncertainty and the stress of survival, liquor and cigarettes will be the new gold. Just make sure the marauders don't know you have a big stash!
A new poll asking your opinion of Swine Flu has been posted to the Board Home. Thank you one and all for participating.

I have to fully agree with Nirgal on this one! It is not surprising at all. Anymore there are too many clueless people in the survival forum who think they know so much or will survive just because they have a gun or something to barter with. There are a lot of people in this world that don't give a s*** about your barter items or guns, theyll just kill you and have all the gear.
My level of preparedness? I have a BOB and weapons. But more importantly I have the knowledge and skills to survive as long as i want with or without a firearm in the wild.
