In a serious SHTF scenario, there will eventually be tribes of marauders. Hundreds, even thousands of armed fighters taking what they want by force. And there will be those working and sweating on their land to provide for their families and all of it can be taken away in a heartbeat no matter how prepared they are.
All you have to do is look at history or go to Africa or Afghanistan to see how people protect their land.
They don't. They can't.

It is this moronic type of thinking that will probably get us into trouble in the first place.
I know for sure, I'll be opening my doors when TSHTF to anyone who needs it.

that is why people will have to group together instead of every man for himself. At least in my humble opinion get the hell out of dodge then start networking....the saying "strength in numbers" is true for a reason.
Look people the bottom fell out of Russia and they didnt kill each other,they didnt run to the hills. so there is a good no $hit example of how their environment didnt completely fall apart. A bunch of apocolyptic movies get made and the first thing that happens is all the men start aligning themselves with the charactors.I bet you the OP god bless him has a big fat Rambo knife and a .45 and an AR and he only plays with his toys when the wife is gone. Thats called Role playing and other things. Fact is nobody knows what they will do till they have to react to what ever. Every Soldier can tell you things never go as planned. NEVER!!! so live like there is a tomorrow and plan on interuptions from time to time...Instinct will prevail....and might as well get used to the thought of dying cause we all do at some point
