Everyone is so worried about the SHTF, but there are a lot of things that make me shake my head and sigh.
How many would actually STAND UP AND FIGHT if it came down to it?
Do you have a safe house prepared?
You have 5 different guns and 1000 rounds for each of them... Yay, go you. Can you carry around that much? If you are running most likely a vehicle is going to be out of the question (this goes back to the safe house thing)
Do you have a cache?
How do you intend on killing wild game SILENTLY. You can't just go around shooting a .223 or .308 if you are hiding.
What about sustenance other than meat? Do you know the edible wild plants in your area?
Your wife is anti-gun, or unwilling to go into hiding. What do you do then? Take the kids and leave her? Stay with her? Man up and tell her she is coming regardless?
Do you have friends with the same sentiments? It is quite hard to fight a small army on your own (this is a more extreme scenario I understand that some do not think it will be that bad, it is simply an example)
Are you in shape or at least working on it? You can run a mile... That might not cut it, also, can you run that mile with you 50-100 pounds of gear.
can you build a shelter if need be?
You have a newborn, can you pacify your child in a situation in which you have to be very quiet. You have hyper active kids that you never make mind (not too likely on a gun forum) how are you going to make sure that they mind you in a terrible situation.
75% of your family has never shot a gun, does not like shooting guns, or is too young to shoot a gun. Can you provide for your entire family, or do you have people that can help you provide.
Are you prepared for 1 scenario, or 10? I am not saying awful things will happen, but WHAT IF?
Are you willing to die for your country? And I do not mean this backwards country we live in now, but our original country, when men were men, and 2nd amendment rights actually meant something!
Yes, I wear a tinfoil hat and I am proud of it. If the aliens come I am prepared to the best of my abilities, if they don't, I have a bunch of nifty toys
I really want feedback here, because, I am finding that I believe in the common man less and less. Men are wearing skinny jeans for goodness sakes, please, tell me there are still real men out there that are prepared.
