Someone once mentioned on one of these threads, one of the truest nuggets of survival knowledge I think I've ever seen. If it's survival, it's
called that because everything has gone wrong and you're absolutely not on the top anymore. In fact, you're making decisions that will lead to your
own life or death. hence..the term of course.
So, what the other member had said (and I can't recall who..I should have noted it) was that in a survival situation, you're the rabbit not the
hunter. To add my own, if you NEED your weapon and not out trying to hunt other human beings (I'd hope no one here becomes the predator class) then
you've already failed. You screwed up.
Either your shelter in place became or a;ready IS too well known and so your own sharing information
caused a conflict which shouldn't have happened.....or you've done a very bad job at looking like another poor and broken man when you're anything
but....outside your own home. ..or perhaps, in this hyopthetical situation...someone just got TERMINALLY STUPID and used a gun.
Why stupid? Well... in the ice storm the dead silence is what I recall most. At night or even during the long days....You could hear traffic from
blocks away no one would normally hear. Silence......until.... (KAAAAAAPOW!!!!) ..... Err... Yeah.... That gunshot may have warned of a few...but it
made MANY MORE mentally note the location to return later when conditions aren't so..dangerous...because someone there AT LEAST has guns to steal and
likely much much more to be shooting people over it!
^^ I gotta throw this out into the thread because it worries me sometimes as people list how they're so heavily armed and ready to kick butt, even
Stallone would have to be taken aback and wondering if someone has a screw loose.
