The filter I use can. What you would be filtering out is radioactive DUST.

As the man said, quality of rainwater depends on what is upwind from you, but is MOST cases, it's fine (naturally distilled, y'know) If you are just downwind from the company that makes isobutyl bad stuff, or methyl ethyl ugly, maybe not.

But look at it this way- after the Apocalypse, industrial pollution will be gone. And coal and charcoal are two very different things.

You have one of those .2 micron filters that cost like $300, don't you?

You're talking freekin C3 shooter ! He probably made his own filter out of a coffee can, paper towels, and some old Dr. Scholls shoe deoderizing insoles with charcoal.

'cept for that tongue rain water has to be caught in something and stored. Are they sterile? A lb. of the right pool Shock is good for 9-10,000 gallons. Drink up!

Dunno about that... A lot of nasty stuff stays 'dormant' because people actively work to keep them that way. In a quick SHTF scenario I would imagine factories spilling out into rivers, lakes, etc, as well as burn to the ground.
