I found it, but there is only one, and its mine!
Seriously, I've been shooting for roughly 42 years. I've lived a good portion of my life without modern conveniences. City folk would not fare well
out in the "boonies" with little bit 'o nothing, but those of us who've lived old fashioned will have a better chance. I'm sure each and every one of
us with a BOB also has a well stocked, prepared home but staying put isn't always an option. We like to be prepared enough - in advance - so that

can only shoot one rifle at a time" so he's had me practicing on his rifles.
His wife and my GF are both crack shots. Bill's fantastic, and I'm not exactly a slouch.
I think some sort of close team, like a family unit, is optimum no matter what is going down. Four people means standing watch is shorter, and under
stress you sleep whenever you can - it conserves calories and keeps you sane.
