    Your typical guy who's prepping is so out of shape, doesn't practice shooting, he's just buying this crap to make himself feel like he's doing something...... and even if he is a closet IPSC Ninja master, he's hardly heading for the hills with wife and kids in tow.

    If another Katrina happens, your giving up your guns just like the tough guys in New Orleans. Probably quicker.

    Typical guy who is prepping??? So I guess you are some kind of expert on this. I can't say for all, but a lot of people I have met that "prep" are in fantastic shape, shoot all the time, and are smart enough to have a plan for themselves and family. Just because you watched an episode of Doomsday Preppers... doesn't mean you know anything about prepping or the people that do it.

    Thank you for the failed attempt to pass along a projected lie.

    This sort of thing is a lie that a person with a behavioral or personality disorder uses as a coping mechanism. It is used to hide their own fear issues by attempting to make those around him/her feel bad. Rationalization occurs when this person unconsciously gives himself a false explanation of his own behavior. This is a common defense mechanism in the Freudian sense when the person does even not realize he is lying to himself.

    More to the point:
    "Projection is a defense mechanism that occurs when people avoid a negative evaluation of themselves by seeing their own unpleasant thoughts or actions in other people. A student who cheats will tell you "everybody cheats." A man who cheats on his wife acts genuinely surprised to find out some men are faithful. Many college students experience projection in the context of a fading romance. The person who wants to end the relationship accuses the other of "acting funny" or "wanting to break up" when it is actually the person who makes the accusation who feels that way"

    Thanks for playing :)

    PS...dude, Eugene Oregon....now it makes sense...lol

    Well, I guess that you are right, but beware! I was one buff fellow, worked with my hands as a machinist, all season backpacking, bicycling, gardening with hand tools, exercise. I could whip my lean 6'4" 220#'s in wildcats! Until I was 59! Then the very things that I did for strength, agility and endurance for all those years caved my body in! The doc's say that 90% of my problems stem from military service. Over sized combat packs on forced marches, being a gun bunny early in my tour, poor nutrition for extended periods, heat and exposure to horrendous cold. Well by golly you are going to get old too! Are you going to just quit, sell off your gear and arms and buy beer? I'm not! So I do what I can, fat and stove up and in pain, and I will go to to the rally, fat, stove up and in pain. It's okay for you to laugh at me now that you know my story. It was a little unfair before you knew it though! Oh, and shooting! My dad was a good shot and my mom was a competitive target shooter. They started to formally train me when I was four. I qualified expert with the M-14 rifle and was trained in quick kill and been a varmint hunter all my life. I learned to shoot handguns walking up narrow, twisting ravines and jumping jack rabbits at the turns. I shoot an M1-A, AR's, varmint rifles, shotguns and hand guns regularly, in fact as often as possible, so I think that I've got shooting covered.

    Numb Nuts.

    Guys like this are the ones that will be attempting to rip me off when SHTF. My family will be taken care of because I prepared on some level, at least to the best of my ability. We won't be scrounging or looking to steal.

    Anyone that comes to take what is mine better be prepared as well.

    What good is 10,000 rounds of 5.56 and a year supply of food when some freak will just shoot you in the back with a shotgun to steal your candy bars.

    Many years spent mostly as a carpenter and a bout with cancer beat me up, so I'm not as fit and healthy as I once was. But I'm smarter than I ever was, I'm mentally tougher and I handle pain better than ever too.

    Nobody lives forever.
