Not that I want to take this thread into a different direction...
But the point of this thread was to remind people to be cautious.
All too often I read posts about someone's arsenal or stash...
I just shake my head.
Just the same as Mybook or Facespace.
What is the point of boasting about what you have?
Getting prepared is not supposed to be an ego-trip.
Although there are people that turn everything into a competition.
Those people grind my gears.
There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to list off the things you own.
To anyone. Ever.
Regardless of their rank, affiliation or title.
It's your privacy.
Keep it that way.
And yes SaturnFX, we humans need to stick together to survive anything drastic.
But having the ability to live without a store or electricity for a month or more is very important these days.
Disasters strike without notice.
Although I use it now, I try not to rely on anything manmade. (electricity, water)
Looking at our infrastructure will tell you that disaster is inevitable.
Just because of our own poor maintenance these last few decades.
Might as well be positive and confident you can last more than a few hours.
Because, as a few mentioned already, if SHTF, it will be crazy enough outside your front door.
As a group, people are panicky and ignorant, as a single unit, a person can be rational and cautious.

Easy there, take the tinfoil of your head for a minute and let me be the first to tell you, If anyone should be worried it's me. I an ex-mil type and
big bro knows everything I do. If I want a suppressor for my Glock, hell I just fill the fed's paper work out and two month's latter I could shoot my
own dog's in the backyard and the neighbor's wouldn't know? If I want a 37mm grenade launcher I get on line and buy one, that simple. Now of course
everybody may not know I have these things and I agree you do not tell the world but I do not worry about big bro, hell they have my DNA for Christ
sake's, I expect to one day meet my military DNA clone at the door with him holding a suppressed pistol to my head saying," ill take it from
here"......OH wait....I am the one with tinfoil on my head.
I could care less who has what.
It's not the governent I am referring to, my original post clearly states that.
The intention of this is merely to inform those who brag to be cautious.
I've witnessed a few here and out in the real world who think it's some sort of race.
As if there's a winner of who can store the most.
With some of the people I've run across, thieves are just waiting for this to happen.
PS: My hat is made from palladium. Aluminum is so 2008.
