    Not if, but when shit hits the fan, which firearms will you be keeping close? I've been thinking about not only this but just general survival strategy and supplies (anything from weapons, vehicles, and all types of supplies) and thought it would make a decent thread. So what do y'all think?

    Remington 870, turkey load number 4. Dads old blazer the bigger style. 350 fuel injected w/4 wheel drive. Will be working on a security fence early next spring around our property and are looking to buy small parcel in surrounding mountain area that we can load up. Also have couple other shotguns and rifles in case I need the wife to help. 20 gauge Remington for her same load. Have thought about it and want to be prepared but pray against it. What about you?

    Ruger Mini-14
    9mm Pistol
    Ruger 10-22(for hunting small game)
    Remington 870 w/8 shot extention

    2000 rds .223 500 9mm 2000 .22 long rifle
    1000 00 bBuckshot
    500 assorted #8 & #6 shot
    200 slugs

    I wish I had an AR-15, a Saiga 12 guage, more ammo, some MRE's, & some other food staples, but I am dog poor right now. I can't afford to REALLY stock up and get ready like I'd like to.

    I tend to go against having a fortified homestead as a safe haven because I feel a nomadic existence would be in the best interest of survival. I wouldn't be toting alot of anything that wasn't an asset...traveling light would be a must. Not only possessions but company. Firearms,food, a way of water purification, fire, shelter, and a few close and trusted folks. Everything else is a luxury.

    A bug out plan in case of emergency is a must, but a fortified homestead/community will allow for a more secure future for another generation. A settled home front is essential for the development of children, and they ARE our future.

    I respect what you are saying, Hachiman, however I respectfully disagree. A "fortified homestead" (in my very humble opinion) would only serve as a place for a last stand, as it would create more attention from those we don't want to attract, and put us in a vulnerible stationary position.

    As for vehicles...I will keep my slug of a 1987 toyota camry. It serves me well. Unless I could get the same vehicle with lower miles in a wagon version, and more gas in the tank, lol. Other than that in a shtf scenario anything with gas in it at the time or if all else fails shoes with soles and laces on them, lol.
     
  10. ha! If you`re not already in the company of a few good vietnam vets who own farm land seperate from eachother, then you better start makin some friends.
     
  11. Living out in the country and having a 5 year old and a 3 year old, WTSHTF/TEOTWAWKI bugging out is our last option. We have made plans to "bug in" or close by. I enjoy reading survival blogs and books. I recently acquired 4 of the Foxfire books for free.

    Basic firearms:
    GLOCK 17
    12g shotgun
    AK-47

    But, those are the least of my plan.

    tactical use 12 gage and a ak-47...hard to beat. Give me a 40 cal Revolver for a pistol.

    Matches and lighters are good but its nice to be able to build fires with what ever you can come up with where you're at.

    I have a magnesium fire starter for the essential need of fire. Matches will only last so long.
