    Just that we understand each other. I respect all the views on for and against, but it's just in my nature to be a little cautious about issuing firearms. Cultural differences may be the trick.
    Cool. In all actuality, a bow or crossbow would be a better SHTF item than a hi-cap assault rifle in most circumstances.

    That Rambo stuff is a fantasy and the "bug out boys" will be the first ones dropping their boutique ARs all over the ground if people start shooting.

    Why make yourself a target right?

    A decent air rifle, .22lr carbine or bow / crossbow would all be fair grocery getters and much better choices from a logistical standpoint.

    That is if of course if your goal is basic survival as opposed to a glorious last stand. ;)

    If **** hits the fan the only option for my country would be a guerrilla warfare. So yes, much of basic survival skills would be needed. Together with assassinations and looting the fallen for ammo, guns,... :-)
    ****, what am I talking about.... :-)))))))))))

    I'm up to the Scourge of God. These are like "how to" manuals. I'm taking the Catoctins and establishing a Neo-Celtic Clan. I'll be happy to ally with your Neo-Germanic/Viking Warbands.

    Bring it, Quetzalcoatl! Lugh and Thor will be happy to hand you your scaly, feathered ass!!!

    Got me a bag of Judo bombs.

    Come the pokkalips, I'll ukemi first (so I'm already down), then detonate one.

    Once all the nearby animals have been thrown hard on their heads, I can loot the biped ones and eat the winged and four-footed ones.

    Judo bombs: essential for the Aftertime.

    Why have space battleships when you can have an armor plated moon?


    Serious portion:
    Bows take a lot longer to become proficient with than your average firearm, not to mention giving up a lot in terms of range and stopping power.
    Crossbows are easier to use but harder to reload, and still have less range and stopping power than a gun. Not to mention that arrows aren't easy to come by, unless you've mastered crafting your own.

    .22 is okay for hunting purposes, easy to carry, and ammo's pretty common...but again, stopping power. I personally would pick a shotgun, with a mix of slugs and shells depending on what you expect to encounter that day.

    I'll stick with a crossbow for a starter and looting if ever needed. Hunt a bit and next thing you know is an entire platoon chasing you. I'm not that keen on letting people know what I'm doing in the area.
    A decent crossbow with optics and a bag to store it from the weather effects should do perfectly.

    Thanks bullies, from a tree hugger to blood thirsty animal in few easy posts :-)))))))))))

    Make 12g shells from plumbing parts

    We all know the ingredients for black powder dont we?

    Make sulphur from plasterboard/sheetrock
    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    Screw humping that ****. I plan on being in a bunker in the mountains of Vermont with that ****. Typical loadout for when I head out for hunting. So an AK with 7 or 8 mags. My son will have the 22 and the wife will have the AR.
