I'm assuming you are joking rather than promoting something that besmirches Doug Ritter's good name.

The problem is that the folks who have prepared with food and other necessary supplies have usually also prepared to defend those supplies. Not "a" gun and ammo, but a lot of guns and lots of ammo. An attitude that you can take what you need is one of a criminal and is not a good survival mentality. Russ also frown

You know, when someone refers to themselves in the third person it makes them look kinda foolish.

Anyway, yes. I was using dark humour there. Should have added a smile or something.

BTW,

For anyone who may be interested, a moderator(who I now have plenty of respect for) has already given me a good slap on the behind for that last post. He explained the error of my ways and I agreed to keep between the lines. I don't wish any bad media for Mr Ritter. Never met the guy, probably never will. I respect what he does however. I kinda expected a forum full of people who constantly talk about survival to be a little more.....um.....Less sensitive. I'll leave it at that.

The items that I carry at ALL times:

knife
photon light & laser w/spare batteries

I carry a few more items when I ship out vs. when I am at home.

We might assume you are joking, but the anti gunners love quotes like that to show 'gun owners are irresponsible'. And you can expect comments like that to come back to haunt you in court if you are ever unfortunate to have to use a firearm.

I realize that you were probably just joking around in fun Mac, and I don't hold that against you, but there ARE people who espouse your attempted humor in a serious way. They are called criminals. Thus, my three recommended carry items would be:

(1) Pocket knife
(2) LED flashlight
(3) Firearm (training/knowledge/experience/profiency required)

Item (3) not to BE a criminal, but to PROTECT YOURSELF from one.
