I do not know. Blush

It's just what I pictured myself looking like if I had to be ready for some shit flying out of a fan. Tongue

I haven't mentioned guns at all in this post. They're not part of the issue, and it'd be nice if you stuck to the issue rather than going off on a nut on your pet agenda.....

What are the 20mm shells you are talking about? Those are for ice cream makers? Oh that's right, bullets fire themselves without being in a firearm?


He said 20mm shell boxes. Do try to pay attention. Drinking Beverage

Frankly, I don't understand that prepper bullshit. What's the goal? To survive for decades in an inhospitable world? To enter a state of basic vegetation and call that life? Where a common cold would kill you with no problems?

Well, yes, maybe I'm a born cynic, but if doomsday of any kind is on the horizon, sign me up for the first wave to perish. This isn't a Fallout game, this would be reality.

Watch the movie "Survivors". It's a game, make-believe for adults. Some folks get trapped by the fantasy, most move on after it gets boring.

Unless storage space is at a premium. Then we're forced to make rational choices.

When you stop making rational choices, then you become a hoarder. I have a bit of trouble with my husband on that issue and it is a constant struggle, which is why he has a nice shop area in the garage. Still, I have my old "Practical Survival" magazines that offer uses for what might be considered trash. You never know what might come in handy when TEOTWAWKI happens.

There are many degrees of disruption from the power being out for a few hours to large pieces of rock or explosives falling from the sky and really fucking up your day.

Having a few necessities stocked to tide one over for some degree of disruption is rational.
The amount of preparation you have is your choice, from a way to stay warm and fed for a while to being able to supply the masses. Something in between would make sense. Consider

Sadly, I parsed that acronym out easily. Sad
