I was recently talking to some friends who have family members that are SERIOUS preppers. The recently visted their family during the holidays.
Naturally the talk turned to preping and my friends were told when TSHTF they would be welcome to the compound. The conditions were these; bring
food, bring guns and ammo, and a flag with their names on it, in order to be Identified from a distance. Snipers?
They were also told to check the boxes on any ammo they purchased for expiration dates. Apparently the companies who make ammunition have added some
chemical to cause the propellant to decay. Earlier this week, I went a store similar to Bass Pro, and while I was there, I checked a great number of
different calibers, as well as shotgun shells. Didn't find any expiration dates.
Have any ATS'ers run into this, or is it just prepper paranoia? (Let's face, most preppers are paranoid, or we wouldn't be doing this.)
