Leaving the women alone would be part of the deal (unless they WANT to entertain...up to them), otherwise, the fallback is the old last man idea....
Better to die fighting than live a slave and all that. I can think of a couple gals in my group that would likely be more accommodating (and maybe
even profit from the "entertainment",
) Again though, that is up to them to decide.
I agree about a good defense, and I do plan a good defensive position, but you also have to consider the possibility of a large enough force requiring
a different approach. NO position is impregnable, though I will certainly take steps to make it as defensible as possible.
From making concrete block pill boxes and their locations, to anti-vehicle posts in front of fences, etc., I've come up with many defensive ideas to
put in place (after a SHTF scenario, so just having the materials stored to do it). Obviously, putting them in now would look pretty silly. The only
current visible defenses are at least two fences needed to get through to get to the house (in some cases 3, depending on approach), and a lot of open
ground from the perimeter to the house (so a lot of area for us to snipe intruders).
But, If a well-armed group of 80 men show up, I'm not fool enough to think my band of a dozen or so folks is going to fare well against them. So, a
different strategy will be required.
If a real SHTF event does occur, I'd prefer to be (once located) a kind of trading center, with well-armed friends we keep supplied in exchange for
access to other goods. An EMT is in our group, and she'll train others. We'll add to our gardening area and grow more food and grow tobacco, and we'll
work on our own booze, etc. With these services, we should prove more of a long-term asset than a one-shot raid target, or at least, that would be the
hope. If they aren't good with the terms....then we'll have to see what happens the hard way.
