Shotguns?

If someone tried to invade this place with a shotgun, they better have a Bible in their pocket too because they are going to need last rights!

Before I got bitten by the AR bug, I was an avid large bore shooter. To that extent, many of my rifles are in calibers like .375H&H Magnum, .458 Win Mag, .460 Weatherby Mag. Why wait for them to get into shotgun range when you can shoot them through their getaway car?

does anyone think its kinda odd how so many people and prophecies seem to point to 2012 and suddenly tv which is mostly controlled by conspiracy related companies is putting alot of survival shows and what to do if disaster strikes?

and it does look like a good show hopefully it'll be packed with lots of really good information and insight on situations most of us dont think well ever get in so are completely unprepared for.

a failure to plan is a plan for failure

What did you think?

I was pretty dissapointed. Aside from the part where they talked about how to let the cops know whats going on without getting shot by either the BG or the LEO.

Didn't like the Home Invasion episode too much. It was catered to rich people who live in the suburb. Any one of us would have handled that situation a little differently; mostly because we all have more firepower than most home invaders. I didn't pick up any tricks/tactics that I didn't already know.

The portion where you are supposed to be driving your kidnapper somewhere while swerving at oncoming traffic and running stop lights/signs seems like nothing more than a good way to get shot in the face.

Id rather pull a Collateral (great gun movie btw) and do what Jamie Foxx did to Spaceman Cruise while they were in the taxi and Cruise pulled a gun...

Thats a good point. But you would probably get away with it at least once. Other then that, there are street lights to blow threw along with stop signs and the like.
