Interesting read... I just spent about a half hour skimming through Selco's posts.
For those interested, it's a Bosnian guy (Selco) telling his day-to-day activities during SHTF scenario for one year of no electricity, no running water, no services of any kind, roaming gangs, scarce food, barter... strict survival stuff in an urban setting in the early 90's.
You can skip all posts except for his and get it... He answers dozens of good questions...
Guns, ammo, lighters, disinfectants, axes, food, medicines, etc...
