Default What to do in mass panic

Just got back from watching World war z, great movie, although it is ALL fake. But it still shows the very real possibility of what COULD happen in the event of a mass incident such as a nuke going off, mass rioting etc etc. What are some things we can do as gun owners and sheepdogs to prepare? I am a survivalist type person, trying to build my ammo and food stocks up. Would it be best to shelter in place? Thanks and I want this to be an interesting and educational thread!!

I do believe I would hunker down in my house, ample supply of food, water, medical supplies, fuel, ammo, wide selection of handguns and rifles within hand reach. I live on a corner with an unobstructed two block view on three sides of my house.

First thing to do in a mass panic is "DON'T PANIC", don't get caught up in the hysteria. Then hunker down and try to ride it out in place, if not possible un-ass the area as smoothly as you can.

Staying right here. Good, bad or otherwise. Too much to take, no place to take it.

If you live in an urban area, I rather doubt that you will have much choice in the matter. If there is mass rioting around your home it would be very unsafe to try to leave. If there was rioting that you heard about early enough maybe you could leave the urban area to go somewhere safer. Most people are very reluctant to leave their home until it is too late. Riots pretty much always include fires. Homes can be fire-resistant but not fire-proof.

I just finished the book World War Z .... much better than the film I hear. If it ever were to happen (it won't) I think we would all be pretty much up s$^ts creek
