Hello...what a fun forum you have here! I've been looking for a group to join with lots of information on getting a great stockpile built up for a SHTF or EMP situation. My husband and I have been talking about this off and on for awhile. At this point I feel I'm 60% prepared...I certainly have at least a year's worth of food,tons of guns and ammo...but would like to get to a point that I feel I'm at least 95% prepared... Since this is a "gun site"...I will admit that I have my concealed weapons permit...and carry a Glock 22 pistol in my purse most of the time. So far I've only shot skunks, coyotes, and a pesky overly friendly neighbor dog.
