1. No law enforcement
2. Fake law enforcement
One of our survival team is a current law enforcement officer, so he should suffice.
He can help us know the real deal from a fake. Also, our law
enforcement methods will be at the end of a barrel in a SHTF scenario. Even real law enforcement agents would simply be other survivors.
3. Taking your guns
Can only take it if they know you have it, and where...
Fences, guns, and my group and neighbors are all I can do here.
5. Able to defend yourself
One of our group is a former MMA fighter, so he's been teaching us some things.
A few are ex military, so that helps also.
A challenge you never see addressed on Doomsday Preppers. I figure we'll have to use a dump site away from us, for this purpose.
We have a well and septic, so off the grid in that respect.
8. Mental health
9. Prepared for challenges
Luckily, we've already had to deal with instances of power outages, water troubles, etc., and were able to deal with those challenges. Sure, there
will be many more, but I'm confident we can adapt. Our group has a good skillset mix, and we all get along well.
Solar charged hand radios are my current solution here. Eventually, I'll get a HAM, but that's in the 3-5 year timeline, so hopefully, the world
stays together that long, at least.
The big challenge in a SHTF situation will be encountering other survivors. Are they here to harm and rob you? Are they here to join? Do you let them
join? Do you trust them? Do you have the resources to add them? What do they bring to the table? etc. It's a moral and logical dilemma that will be
difficult at best, impossible at worst.
