    You obviously know nothing about real survival and that was one of my points in posting this thread.....to get people motivated to take responsibility for themselves during an emergency situation.

    Please do so.

    The problem is you're not thinking. You're blathering on about incoherent nonsense because you're worked up. That is panic.

    But you go on with the talk about shooting people because nothing says calm and collective quite like threatening to kill people online.

    No, you can take my word quite seriously. I think plenty. This thread is about contingencies and what if's. That is what planning is. You will rarely come across anyone who gets less worked up than I do. I am good at keeping my cool under duress.

    What planning is not, is thinking that if the power goes down for a few days, you will kick back, enjoy some wine, and everyone will remain calm and collected.

    Yeah, threatening to blow people away screams "cool under duress".



    My neighborhood was under 6 feet of water exactly 1 year ago, to the day. Some houses collapsed, others burnt to the ground. Unfortunately natural disasters are far from uncommon but, fortunately, you're horribly misinformed on what typically takes place afterwards. You would do well to put down your gun and pick up a book or newspaper from time to time and educated yourself. Kicking back and enjoying some wine is exactly what we did and it was exactly the right thing to do. Long Island was very fortunate not to have someone as "cool under duress" as you exacerbating the situation with your panicking and gun fire. You're exactly the reason Second Amendment supporters like me support gun control laws.

I don't live with the expectation that this will happen, but I do prepare for it, just in case it does. I would not want to kill someone in order for me to survive, but make no mistake, my survival instinct is just as strong as anyone's, and if I had to do it, I would.
    As usual... very well said.

    Well we can start with the fact that I have 10K rounds of ammo at just my house. With in one mile radius I have 5 family members with similar deals. ARs with slide fire stocks will do some serious damage to a crowd.
    So, send 100 people down my street.
