I think I saw the same post;IIRC he also was packing more than one weapon and lots of ammo. Undoubtedly he was a wee tad pessimistic about the coming apocalypse.

I hold a somewhat more optimistic view of behavior in an emergency, even one involving a great deal of disruption. I believe analysis of past incidents tends to support this view.

I intend to help my neighbor, because, who knows, the shoe may quickly be on the other foot and my neighbor will be helping me and lending capabilities I do not have. Besides, that's just the right thing to do.

Groups, especially ones working together, tend to weather bad times more successfully than-individuals.

But these Sudden Doom boards are fun to read.

I know some folks expect Mad Max, not cooperation, but I wonder how many firefights a person expects to engage in and survive? Alone, on foot, with no air support or allies on the ground, it seems that running gun battles won't be something you can survive for long. I think there's a place for body armor but a GHB is not one of them!

I have mixed feelings regarding the coming apocalypse.
