I always asume the worst possible scenarios. Be it nuclear, an asteroid, Yellowstone in the worst possible way. After something like that i just don't see much sense in going on with my life.
Of course some small war isn't that "bad" (i guess i would also stick through another world war, my grandparents survived them so i should be able to do it) and i'm thankful i don't live in a place that has earthquakes or tornadoes and even floods aren't much of interest for me.
And why is it disturbing? It's my own life i end, it's not that i take other people with me or harm anyone with it. I just say i won't continue in such a world.

You may have a point there about our military being hesitant to do anything to a U.S. citizen but I'm sure someone has thought of that and that's why they would more than likely use Chinese NATO troops, they wouldn't hesitate to put a bullet in an American. You also threw out alot of numbers there that still don't support what you originally said. You said you knew your building well and could defend it. Am I to believe now if a battalion of soldiers rolled into your neighborhood, that you have better weapons than M1 Abrahms tanks, M3Bradlys, etc, etc, and can fight off a battalion of tankers or mobile infantry? Oh, wait. Silly me, of course one guy can do that. Nevermind, my bad.

Women, Children and out of shape males will get you killed. What you describe sounds more like a hippie commune than a shtf gang of ruthless killers that will be the people that survive.
Mobility is the secret to survival. Those hunkering down will be targets for the real survivalists. It'll be fun!

Being in a wheelchair, I wouldn't bug out.
