    In the discussions about ferin troops on us soil. When/if the pucky hits the fans. How will the patriots among us differentiate from the bad guys?. Say I have to bug out :nono::flag::flag::flag::flag::flag::flag::flag:and I am a good guy but you can't tell for sure through your your Zeiss 4x12 Sasquatch 2000 scope? Sure my wife is with me but we got odd bits of camo and are both packin some heat? How do we keep from friendly fire amongst folks trying to get to safe ground? And join up with the good citizenry? And what will the renegade, desperado law breakers look like?

    Food for thought.

    Just wear any bicycle helmet no one will believe you can actually shoot.... though many can, and would.

    Seriously, passwords, blue bandannas, just putting it out there for a hypothetical discussion. I am thinking about running ballistics test on old motorcycle helmets rose which brand really has Kevlar. :gun10: just for kicks

    I think a type of symbol either drawn on the helmet or shirt. Words may not work out too well. Be it something only discussed via PMs or in person. Because again.. Big brother id listening. :)
    Try checking the thread "Meet your like minded neighbors"
    Chat with folks from your area.
    Ill let folks pass who had hammered out a truce prior.. But I wouldnt give up my position nor my base of operations. Id also possibly defend their said "safe passage" if upon attack.. But again to my best abilities to not give my position away.

    I'm thinking the whole helmet idea may need more thought. Better idea is to move like a cat, don't be seen.

    No helmet. No password. No fantasy.

    Don't worry, we'll feed you no matter how crazy you are.

    "reviled"?

    Maybe "revealed" would work better

    from what little I know, coded attire arises organically when the need arises, and rarely before. Im thinking of the red berets in the french revolution, or the red bandanas of the wiskey rebellion.

    I was always (still am) partial to boonie hats when "working". How about a nice Gadsen rattler, or an upside down U.S. flag patch? ;)

    Thanks after working 15.75 hours driving a dump truck my internal spell check was defective. I am in your debt.

    Nothing says "good guy" like a tactical tin foil hat, maybe in patriot tri-corn style.

    I liked "reviled" - thought it was deliberate for humor.

    Re: tactical tricorn tinfoil hat - Remember that a tinfoil hat of any configuration has to be grounded to protect against EMP, the Evil Eye, HAARP thought control, etc. It can be spray painted the color of the day for force recognition purposes and replaced as necessary.

    The use of symbols has been an age old form of unspoken communication for centuries. It identified who was safe. I'm guessing if the SHTF this tactic would quickly be implemented. Being able to spread the word (symbol) would be slow. You would have to avoid any/all use of electronic media because it is to easily compromised by the authorities.

    Just disremember that the OPFOR is reading this forum and your emails and listening all the time anyways, so any prearranged signal will be known - have to make it up on the fly. Or hide real good.

    +1 and may even make you look like a non-threat.
