When the SHTF!!!
 
When the **** hits the fan who will survive? The hicks. No offense city boys but the hicks are the true survivors. Survival to them isn't something they read out of a book they ordered from a gun magazine, it's there way of life. Shooting isn't just a every once in a while thing it's an all the time thing. Hicks have more than a bunch of little wimpy 22's. When it comes to huntin it's not just a every once in a while trip that they take with their rich daddy where they hire a guide with some dogs and go quail huntin or when they've paid a crap load of money to some guy who takes them to his huntin blind and tells them the exact time that a deer is going to walk by. And they don't need a bunch of gadgets to tell them where the fish are. They make use of anything they have. When they want food they grow it, raise it, catch it, trap it, or shoot it. I just think it's freakin hilarious when people on here talk about survival like they really know something because they read some book or watched a tv show. Your going to need more than 1000 rounds of ammo and a couple bags of rice or beans to survive. Remember nothing lasts forever.

Reading books must be worth something. Seems like some instructor is constantly telling me to read a book. Maybe there is something to it after all :)

Knowledge gained from a book is only useless if you don't do anything with it until you need it. Reading a book is a valid way of obtaining the knowledge you're speaking of, as long as you follow up with practice to gain a better understanding of the subject.
And i say that as a 3rd generation "hick"
