I expect civil unrest when the econ tanks further.
LA riot type stuff.
Best guns and plans, aint gonna help much if the crap goes long term.
Any successful defense or planning will get noticed and make you a target.
You won't be able to fight repeated attempts at taking you or your stuff...........unless you seal off in a bunker.

Best bet IMHO is to lay low and let all the John and Jane Waynes take the heat.

Survival means going undetected...............gun must be suppressed.

Oh look! The SAME dire predictions of economic collapse

and WROL are being touted NOW, as when this thread started,

THREE YEARS AGO. It's always been RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER,

since the sixties.

THINK about this rationally. Would suppliers not have bugged out

by now, or have kept this gear for themselves, if all this ooga-booga

BS was really going to happen? I'm telling you, it's the stuff of

Urban Legends...
I'm not saying that a shtf situation is coming soon, but when the Jews were being executed I wonder if they thought man I wish I had a gun. Everyone can say something is or isn't gonna happen but the truth is no one knows. So I say if buying 20,000 rounds of ammo sounds like a good idea to you or just going on with your day as if nothing will happen is your choice then what's there to discuss? You will find out when something happens or you won't find out because nothing will happen. Here's a real question that I can guarantee will happen. How are you gonna stop yourself from getting old and dying lol were all gonna die some how some way just make sure your right with god and that covers all the what if's. God bless you all

The Inuit indians live a SHTF situation. They are over 500 miles from supplies of any kind. There are no UPS, fedex or any kind of parcel service that delivers to the inuits. One their favorite rifles is a 22 wmr bolt action. The inuits shoot polar bears in the heart with a 22 wmr. Then they track the bear until it bleeds to death. The reason they use a 22 wmr is it doesn't damage the pelt.

You are not Rambo. You are not going to hold off any sort of well organized attack by yourself with a light machine gun, much less an AR15. I would look for a rifle that you can carry thousands of rounds in a cigar box. The only rifle that can take medium sized game and allow you to carry a lot of ammo is a 22 wmr.

Was it brought back to life by artificial recitation or artificial insemination? I can never get those two straight?

Damn JD, you made a great point for the 22WMR!
I happen to love this little round
