RE: Are You Ready if Shit Hits The Fan?
In the past ive done a small bit of preperation, got a few books on survival techniques and foraging/hunting and got myself a medium sized crossbow. I stacked silver and gold for a while but ive sold it all off in dribs and drabs now.

If there is some sort of economic reset, I think millions will die. So many people live paycheck to paycheck and less people are saving as compared to earlier generations. The vast majority in the western world have little idea on how to grow food and trap animals.

The total collapse of society though..... dunno if that is worth surviving, sure its instinctual, but you will experience some grim shit.

I feel so much, and yet I feel nothing.
I am a rock, I am the sky, the birds and the trees and everything beyond.
I am the wind, in the fields in which I roar. I am the water, in which I drown.

Wow. What the hell are you guys expecting to happen that you're all hoarding stuff for some kind of apocalypse? Geez, you're as bad as the crazy christians waiting for jesus. Here's a thought, enjoy each moment, cause this is it folks. There isn't a second act. Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow may never come!

Live!

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Nope.

When the nukes hit (not if, they're coming, my cat told me so), anyone who does not wish to live during the post apocalypse period please come visit me and volunteer to be added to my food storage. I figure willing cannibees (the recipient of cannibalism, is that a word?) will not put up as much of a fight as the ones still trying to live.

You really, really need to give the fuck up Brian by turning nearly every thread into a soap box for your obvious anti-gun fanaticism. Yes... we ALL know how you feel about guns by now.

Just give it a rest mate FFS. No
Yeah, I'm a pro-gun control gun owner and I'm getting tired of this.

If I hadn't personally experienced what a collapsed country is like I might be inclined to not be paranoid.

As for me, I am not prepared for anything except the status quo.

The Amish have a thing about storing a year's worth of food.

If the man of the house becomes unable to work ( a badly broken leg is frequently used as an example) - then if nothing else, his family won't go hungry.

If you do it right, it doesn't even really cost anything.

You just have to spend a bit of time making preparations.......

If you find that irrational, I hope you never have to find out otherwise.

Cuz being really hungry, and having to rely on charity would really suck ass...

Since I haven't worked in forever, the man is the sole bread winner.

We now have two years worth of his salary liquid so we can access it if needed (it's took us roughly 10 years to save it), sure we have needed to dip into that nest egg when the heater and roof needed replacing, but we replenished it pretty quickly.

So at the very least, we will keep the roof over our head, the lights/utilities on, Internet going and food. But we would need significantly trim our monthly expenses to cover the property tax and insurance. Which wouldn't be easy, but I think we could manage it.

Everything else that's beyond that, I could let go of.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

That's not brass it's brass cased percussion primed loaded 20 mm Vulcan Target Practice (TP) ammo. It is just a solid projectile opposed to an explosive or incendiary round but still functional 20 mm cannon ammunition. If you look down below that one they got some electric primed 20 mm Vulcan TP rounds, some API and even some sabot rounds with tungsten penetrators for $100 each, but those are Phalynx rounds which are a different spec than the Vulcan.

The TP rounds are the preferred rounds for use in Anizo Iron Works 20 mm Vulcan bolt guns. Here's one sitting next to their 50 BMG model.
