I personally think it would be a good idea, lots of countries could get involved but obviously they'd have to have variations as each country has
different regions, for example the US has Urban, forest , grassland, swampland and desert, where-as the UK has urban , bit of grassland and forest and
thats about it.
I know there's such things as 'sex' expo's, computer expo's and car expo's, as well as gun shows ( but not any more in the UK for citizens but
only for the arms dealers occasionally). So why not survivalist expo's?.
Yes I feel there would be a lot of people in camo , but who cares?, if the prices are right from the vendors selling their wares, or giving seminars
on techniques I think I'd go.
In the UK Earls court would be good or Canary Wharf's Excell is always up for conventions, but the biggest problem IMO would be the vendors selling
such items such as knives or 'other implements of suspicion' I think the police would be there to 'monitor' the situation and probably would cause
a fuss to get it banned, after TPTB don't want you to be prepared do they?
I know they search bags on the way IN, would they bother on the way out even with knowing knives are being sold in the expo? or would the police
patrol the expo to prevent said purchases? And if the knife for example is well 'over'wrapped in a bag in a rucksack they'd probably still try to
'arrest' you for owning a knife.
And there's nothing wrong with Anime? after all YOU ALL liked Tom and Jerry cartoons didn't you? Just the Japs version of cartoon entertainment. and
by the way Akira ( my avatar) is still the coolest and best of all anime IMHO.
