We have our bug out bags ready. Always have had them.
It's better to have all options available then to be caught short.
Right, and that's just it, plan for as many outcomes as you can think of. Adaptability is the name of the game.
However, I have shot a gun (and I'm a good shot thankyouvery much), and I do so on a regular basis. I know how to hunt, and make shelter, survive
on bugs, edible plants, find collect water etc... All that 'survival stuff' reasonably well. I've been taught these skill sets my whole life,
(which isn't to say that there aren't alot of people who do it better than me.)
I have lived that life where people shoot at you, I know that getting stabbed hurts ALOT, and I know what it feels like to get the sh*t kicked outta
you, and what it means when you need to kick the sh*t out of someone else just to survive. So in a situation with no civil order I will do my
d**mndest to be completely invisible. Sometimes that doesn't work though, and if I even think you might be a threat (and that means if I'm
scared... and I will be, if I even SEE you, I may very well shoot first and be sorry about your kids later. But I still p'rolly wouldn't make it.
The odds are the odds. Someone else will be just as scared and trigger happy, or worse.
It's the very unpredictability that makes is so tough and so scary; and most people don't really understand what it means to actually live that
way. They are having their little video game fantasies now, but when push comes to shove most of 'em will be too caught up in the mantra that WILL
be going through their head 'This can't be happening this can't be happening this can't be...' If you hesitate once, when your brain starts
playing that you're probably dead.
What gets me is that it's the people that are already living on the fringe and firmly indoctrinated in the criminal menality, and are thoroughly
desensitized to actually living violently, that have the best edge. They really do.
