Thats how I see it. its not perfect but hitting the woods is suicide. If some really nast shit is happening I would need 10 miles to get to a highway and anoher hour to get to the mountains where there will still be people who might not like me being there. Besides my old man isnt making any hikes up mountains or evasive anything. Best he could do is play scarecrow. So Im bugging in where I know the area, the people and have all my stuff. When the time comes, I'll take a carpet of brass on my living room floor over freezing or starving to death in the woods.
All good stuff above ^...you had best get to know your neighbors. If anything really bad were to happen, its those around you that are going to be your best shot at pulling through a big crisis.
IMO, people who live in small towns probably will have a better chance of survival than most. Lets all hope none of us never find out.
Violence can work in the correct circumstance, you just need to judge how much you need to use. One person, or even family would have a hard time going it alone, but working with other families, or other community members is a good option IMO.I'd never heard off DVM before now. Thanks for sharing.
One thing that kinda struck me as strange was Myth #5.
I mean, the guy certainly has more credentials and experience than me, but I just can't understand why defending the home is such a loosing proposition.
I understand that even just 1 armed man outside could raise some serious hell, but I don't think it's pointless to at least try.
When people are in that panicked, primitive state of mind, the first thing they recognize and respect is force; is it not?
