In a SHTF scenario, the stores will be pretty much emptied within a few hours, and remaining in the stores will be the bodies of those who had a hold
on something someone else wanted very badly.
Consider the 3,000,000 or so diabetics alone. Insulin must be refrigerated, and no one has more than a 30-day supply. Then you have those in
hospitals or in their homes on oxygen or require other life-maintaining drugs and medical supplies. Those will be consumed very, very rapidly.
Hospitals, just like everything else will run out of power and even backup fuel very quickly. Woe to the very young and very old in these times.
A third of the population will be gone in the first 30 days. Stress, medical inattention, murder, sickness, starvation, natural catastrophic events,
and just weakness.
A second third of the population will be gone within six months, as hoarded or looted supplies begin to run out and desperation sets in.
If we're lucky, by the end of the first 12 months, we'll have some 20% to 30% of our population left.
A lot of folks who view this as a damned video game, running around and looting others are in for a very rude awakening.
So you have a hundred of your family and close friends? Wait until someone who isn't going to put up with such looting and having your own way meets
force with force.
When you see some of those family members with their heads blown half-off, some of the very ones who seemed the boldest and most capable literally
gutted with high-powered rifle fire, you'll quickly enough realize that your approach is wrong.
When you try to disengage this disaster in the making, and this SOB is continually picking off more family members, and your time now is spent
primarily in digging hasty graves for those family members, count yourself lucky if a dozen of you get away alive.
And if you're passing and I see everyone is hungry, my reply will be, "I'll feed the children. But you are men, and if you want to continue to
call yourselves that, you'll get off urasses and find your women some food. I'll not feed grown men. You can find food if you really want it, but
if I see you sneaking around here - I'll fertilize my soil with your blood."
There will be a bit of a natural selection that occurs the first twelve months, and the best way to avoid becoming victims of two-legged animals, will
be to minimize the possibility of contact with them.
Note too, there will be an explosive growth of four-legged predators and critters. Dogs will be wild in short order, and travel in packs. Large,
One only has to review the events following the fall of the Roman Empire to see how quickly wild animals become a major threat.
So among all my weapons of choice, aside from firearms, my tomahawk will be useful every single day. I also have spear heads and butt pieces ready to
mount on poles.
Entries into some of my places will be just over two feet high. You'll have to get on your hands and knees to enter - head first - but don't think
that you'll be leaving with it. It's staying.
This is not going to be a power trip, an adventure or a game.
Every day, you'll be tested.
And it's all pass/fail.
