Have any of you read this book, One Second After? If this topic has already been discussed, sorry, I am new.
I am reading this book and to me this would qualify as the SHTF scenario. I also thought of this forum when the Dad in the book is taking his guns out and what he is loading his shotgun with, i have read the same thing in the shotgun section many times. This is a very good book so far.
Here is some info on the book for those who may not have heard about it. This book really gets your mind wondering. onesecondafter.com - Home

my buddy just gave me this book last week and i'm only about twenty pages in or so....feels like its going to be a quick read, meaning action packed, edge of seat type story...and interesting to say the very least.
my hat is off to anyone who has served or is currently serving our country.....God bless you..you're friends and family included.
I see the book as being close to accurate in a similar situation or disaster. The first 24hrs help is on the way, 24-48hrs people begin to get more aggressive, 48-72hrs its everyone for themselves. I had an older gentleman (WWII era)tell me one time that you only have 24hrs to get to your bug out location and if the authorities want the public to locate to a specific location, for me to be very cautious of their motives. Some things just make sense if you think about them.
I did not like the trepidation of the main character who was supposed to be well schooled in EMP, but other than that it was very informative.
The recurring lesson of books like (The Road, Lucifer's Hammer, One Second After, etc...) this for me has always been...
1.) You can't have too much ammo.
2.) You can't have too much food/water.
3.) Cannibalism is only a few days away at any moment.
4.) You can't have too much ammo.
5.) Make sure you have plenty of socks, and good spare boots.
