Mods, an ats/google search did not show this topic so...
Also if needed to move to a more appropriate forum, this is your board and will do as you want.
Well, first they got Dsarti for being a nut, and now they got Al for making grenades.
First off, Dsarti is not crazy, he is weird, he is a troll, he is different, but he is far from unstable.
As for this other guy Alfred Dutton, I cannot say the same.
If you want full auto, silencers, mags over 10 rounds, GO WHERE THEY CAN BE OWNED LEGALLY IDIOTS!!
However, bombs of any sort are a nogo, they do not discriminate against anyone women, children, men.

So.....
Who else wants their 15 minutes of fame?
Get soap on a rope, ya dope!

See. What you do is you keep the parts seperate and isolated from eachother. Keep it a secret and you're good to go

He probably was bragging or something and got caught, most preppers are silent on the matter.

I think we have a LOT of different ideas and personal definitions of what a doomsday prepper is ... and I bet a good 95-99% would not call a person who makes grenades a prepper.

A prepper can be anything from somebody ready for the next hurricane to a CME grid-failure like NASA predicted so many times (but never happened.)

I think it's a disgrace to lump a guy like this in with all the otherwise good folk.

Man, it blows my mind how gullible and naive these people are just to be on TV. Is it really worth it?

If you insist on your 15 minutes of fame, use caution. DO NOT SHOW ALL YOUR FIREARMS!!!!!

Remember Big Brother is watching, literally....

Personally I think it is in extremely bad judgement to show the public who you are and what you possess, especially your home defense [weapons of sort], food supply, gold/silver coins, etc..... not to mention what you are or not prepared for food/weapon wise.

Never show your hand when playing cards. Bluff when possible.....

Just to go on this show would be stupid, it puts you DIRECTLY into the limelight.
"They" will keep more tabs on you, check your web browsing, Etc.
To just have the parts for bombs is a bad thing, sure you can have your everyday things but... there are other things folks should not keep on hand at all.
Like I said, if it is illegal, go to where it is.
If you cannot find such a place, maybe there is a reason for that.

I will say, I did watch a few of those DDP episodes..and I did learn some good stuff.
I really like the ones where they touch on how to make food last for years and years.

I am not a DDPer (how do you prepare for doomsday anyhow...I am in florida, I can survive a few weeks without power, tried and tested already, so no worries..and no, after a few weeks, the neighbors and I didn't start shooting each other. We had cookouts actually and fished a lot).
But, the idea of stored food makes sense..be it you come across a stupidly great deal and want to stock up, or hurricane season is coming.

Not sure how grenades fits in the whole doomsday prepping...unless part of the food gathering in post apocolyptia involves cannibalism.

Survival Horror
The Apunkalypse

These are probably two of the sorts of scenarios that this person was planning for.

I'm so very surprised that the doomsday preppers would want to be on television.

When I first saw the show, I thought it was very strange that people who so fear what modern civilization has become are so willing to go on television and become so visible to everyone in the world.

I'm not surprised he got caught. I hope the rest of these people take note and just keep the not-so-legal parts under wraps. There's nothing wrong with being a food hoarder. Hell, I know lots of Mormons. Keeping a ton of weapons without an arsenal permit isn't legal, though.

If you plan to do that, just, as other posters have said, don't show off your s***.

Exactly! I could not believe it when I saw the show, and was instantly distrustful of the whole thing. I watched it and shook my head - a truly good, paranoid prepper would NEVER go on tv and show everyone what they have. Now, everyone in their area knows exactly what they have and where to go get it.

Dumb - really dumb.
