    Talking with some colleagues today about prepping and one chimed up. "Yea Ill just shoot you and take your guns and ammo&Food". So I responded, I have purposely made HOT loads that will blow you and everyone around you away, Also I have poisoned some of my food so that only my wife and I know witch ether is! His response was "That's not humane". Mine was, Neither is yours and now I know who to preemptively snipe. The room was quiet but agreeable after.:cool:

    Brilliant plan that guy had. Very well thought out! :laugh: Right up there with "we will come to your house" (we have been told that by some close "friends"). Sometimes I wish things would get to that point just so the morons can experience first-hand how their "plan" will be an epic fail.

    Nice.
    I do tell the folks who just say: "If S ever hits the fan, Im going to/with you".. I then say: "Im going to defend my location from ALL passerby's AS WELL AS aggressors.. Also.. My fridge will need meat.. So unless you've got something you're bringing to the table.. Keep on walking.

    If push comes to shove.. I will eat you, your family, your dog..etc.
    many will deny that cold hard truth.. But in the end, we'll all revert to our animal instincts.
    Granted it'll take A LONG time before we start eating each other.. But at least Im realistic.

    Thats when the conversation usually ends. LOL.

    But think about it.. If I let everyone join my team.. They'll literally be taking food water and medicine right from my family. One ration, two..etc. essentially ensuring all of our demise because they didn't have the forethought nor desire to prepare.

    But I like that idea. Instead of poisoning one food ration or round of ammunition, why not Booby-trap an entire lot of it. Perhaps an entire cache at the main location or most likely to be discovered same idea but a greater chance of taking out more of the low lifes that either murdered or are stealing from you.

    This is one of the reasons I usually don't talk about this with people I don't like or don't trust. I've never gotten that remark addressed to me personally, but I've heard it espoused most loudly by police. This is why I've been stocking up on fava beans and chianti.

    In our case it is because some friends pretty much only talk about their latest "favorite" television shows, and we have to change the subject so as not to be bored to death (literally). Hearing their reactions is pretty entertaining too - at least until their brains reset back to tv show conversations. Also, one of the ways we gauge where we are on the timeline is by listening to what the uber-clueless have to say on the matter.

    ^^^ What ever makes your life less boring! I prefer that NOBODY knows what I have, do or prepare! Only those neighbors who are in it with me. I've known them 20-30yrs.

    Only a few know about my stuff and I'm lucky to be in an area where most prep for extended winter storms anyway so I don't stand out, still OPSEC is very important especially in these times. Remember that Obama still has that Hot Line to turn in Terrorists for cash.

    I try to avoid these types of people. They usually don't have the creativity or capacity to keep up and as you state... make boring conversationalists. Reminds me of a date I went on, just making small talk and I said "so what do you think about the upcoming election" just trying to gauge what kind of person she was, "I don't vote" was her response. I think I asked for the check and we went our separate ways after that.

    Opsec is always critically important. Doesn't matter who is in the white house, there are so many laws on the books, and so many new laws being created every day, god only knows when you will violate one of them and the JBT will show up at your door.

    the reason is so they can come after you for any reason and have an excuse to do it

    Fire will breach most defences. Bullets will finish the job. Roasted people legs taste like pork I here.
    How good is all your guns and ammo against fire??

    why use fire when you can use smoke to your advantage?

    there's a reason police is so fond of using such tactics. leaves the home/properties alone for maximum recoup of funds/moneys

    When people start talking about roasted people legs, that pretty much ends the thread. Trolling deserves no response.

    Kinda brings the zombie thing to reality doesn't it . Many "citizens" will be larger problems than the gov. Trust is going to be a dambed hard thing to earn for somentime if things get gritty.

    IN post SHTF, trust will be non existent unless it is inside your own group. To expect yourself and group to form alliances and associations after SHTF is going to be pretty risky. My group is mostly family, with a fair amount of like minded friends. We have trained prepared, and are very aware of and confident in each others abilities.

    I would be pretty hesitant to form any associations after the fact. These relationships need to be well vetted and established before you have to react to outside influences.

    Some one forgot to mention that to the San Bernadino Sheriff before they burned that dude out in Big Bear, and the Feds at Waco too.
