    A while back I made the suggestion that I wasnt going anywhere as we really had no where to go to. I was suprised at the number of people who agreed with me. We have about 8 1/2 acres which has a pond (water) and wild game so I feel we can live (survive) for quite awhile tilll things get hard. As food/water runs out in near by towns (20,000 give or take) 25 miles away how do us crazy prepared survialvist deal with the unprepared?

    How would you deal with squatters currently? OK, now subtract the stuff that other people or entities that might become more limited do in that process. In other words, you will eventually have to kick them out, probably forcibly.

    At some point, that probably will get quite nasty, good luck.

    edit* Perhaps some large, protective dogs would be a helpful addition to your clan? The shelters usually end up with a few extras that you could pick up cheap.

    If they are of some benefit, can hunt, fetch water, work the land, shoot strainght, brought their own ammo and weapons; KEEP 'EM!!

    If they are the free loading type, run them off!!!

    Try to make a deal with them which benefits you excessively, and if they don't want to play ball, shove the bat up their azzez. Beeswax is beeswax, and all.

    It's a good rule of thumb. You can be a benevolent dictator, but be a dictator. Don't let "democracy" make you powerless in your own land.

    Squatters? You just have to know how much to lead them. ;)

    Remember, in a SHTF scenario, not everyone is gonna be squatters...some are gonna be takers and short of being killed, they will stop at nothing to make yours, theirs.

    One can only stay hold up in their house for so long, unless you have a tunnel that leads from the house and exits somewhere out away from it.

    Just saying.....

    How do deal with squatters? Head shots at 200 yards is what I am thinking.

    Hold your friends close, and your enemies closer.

    Actually, it's a really good question. It's something I hadn't thought much about. My thinking has been more about repelling hostiles.

    This will take some pondering.

    If you think about it, squatters are hostile, just not as immediately or directly; they use up resources that you will be needing to stay alive or healthy. What if they decide a favorite pet of yours is on their menu; the line between aggression & competition can seem pretty thin to me.

    Is that "passive-aggresive" activity?

    I'm thinking in terms of exchange of useful skills. All other situations will be met with extreme prejudice.

    Pretty much got the kind of suggestions Id thoght Id get. Im anti-social as it is so if we had a complete break down of society it would not be diffcult to for me to let folks know they werent welcome to visit. Someone made the suggestion about having plenty of food and ammo on hand. Ive been working on that. Decided you cant have to much. Someone also made the suggestion about having large dogs. Got it covered. 2 mastiffs, 4 great pyrenees, St. Bernard and a Newfouland. And of course my attack Dachusand.

    How you deal with squatters is how you deal with any situation when the SHTF. You weigh the situation against your circumstances. Are you part of a tight group that is well-armed and well-fed? Maybe you just want to clear the squatters off your property, preferably letting them live, using appropriate force.

    Or are you pretty much alone and in trouble? Maybe you could use a couple other people to work with, in which case you might want to approach them in a dominant fashion, but offer to let them stay in exchange for their help (assuming they know what they're doing and could be of benefit to you).

    Alternate plan: squatter = dog food.
