Funny, you guys will have all of this stuff for a doomsday event, but you're missing one major thing. You better stock up on toilet paper too. It doesn't go bad, so keep a bunch stored up. I can hunt for food, get water from my well. I need that tp.

Move to a rural place in south or south eastern Asia and start over by ridding myself of my life before SHTF.

That would actually be one of the worst plans ever ... unless you have all of the guns.

If I am going to take over a store, it would be one that sells decent firearms and survival gear. Cabellas or Bass Pro would fit the bill.

Exactly ... you know every single person within 20 miles is going to go running to Walmart if anything happened.

Well my thought was if it comes down to looting a store for supplies the two I mentioned would have a much better selection and better products. I'm sure they would have a rush too.

Jokes aside if it came to that point, I would stay far far away from any store like that. This conversation reminds me I really do need to look into reloading.

Living in Greenville, I wouldn't for a second dream of going to Cabelas if anything happened. You'd never make it off Woodruff Rd alive.

I'm not in a situation right now that I can expand, but we've made sure our safety stock has stayed relatively intact. It's still not where it needs to be, but more than I could carry on my body if ever needed.

I have some stuff stored, but I'm not a hole-up-in-the-woods-and-wait-for-the-apocolypse type person, although I do know some.
In the "government takes over" scenario, civilians aren't going to be able to compete with the equipment the military has, so I don't really subscribe to that.
To me, the most realistic problem would be hyper inflation causing people to go crazy trying to feed themselves.

For the last few conflicts under armed insurgents have done pretty well against our war machine.

But I do agree, the gov turning on it's own people seems improbable and your scenario is more probable

On a serious note, this is why I wouldn't consider anything beyond 22LR, .223, 9 mm and 12 gauge as my rounds of choice in a SHTF situation. They are the most common calibers ammunition and one should be able to pillage them if needed.

Oh, and these....

I'm with you. I had multiple calibers a few years ago. All my handguns are now 9mm, rifles are .223, and 12 gauge. The exception is my .30-06, and I recently bought a 16 gauge, and a 20 gauge shotgun from my father in law for $45

Yeah, I hear you on that.

I've been wanting an old Savage Model 24 for a while now, would actually be a nice survival gun /small ranch gun. Maybe one day I'll find one for a decent price.

Haha wasn't trying to come off as a prick or anything. Just pointing out that, that would be everybody else's plan too.

I'm not into the whole "the zombie apocalypse" is coming stuff. More or just want to have enough to protect and take care of my family if people go crazy.
