Should a walkie-talkie now be considered a personal protection while things are the way they are when out and about? I understand a talkie's limit of distance and surrounds, but during a panic situation of crowds, I feel they'd be a live saver and better control of situation when separated. What are your thoughts on type or why you wouldn't think a walkie-talkie wouldn't be valuable to have close by if you were to help with being a patriot? MURS GMRS/FRS FRS only 22-channel type with CTCSS/DCS Each has their uses according to surroundings and I'm sure these large gangs of looters/plunder-ers uses them, so they do have their usefulness over the cell phone in my opinion. On the farm or out hunting near the house, I've found a talkie to be much more benefitual over a cell phone due to cell tower location and speed of contact, but on the farm I have control of, whereas in the city one is at mercy of surrounds, which can change very quickly.
