    Kill it. Clean it. Eat it

    To the three no's. If you would like to try your hand at it you can buy a Rabbit/chicken for $10 at most flea-markets. Just don't name it. We do, but it's names like : dumplins,stew,gumbo,etc.

    What Percentage will make it?

    Disease worries me most too. In the past(black plague,spanish flu,etc.) there were FAR fewer people, with FAR slower transport. That means the disease will spread easier and faster. Now more live in cities than the country too. Most couldn't feed them selves without a plague. And we are over due for a pandemic.

    How's your ammo supply?

    Thanks Capt. that's about what I was thinking. I shouldn't ever have the need to fire the wrong ammo in a firearm but if I did i would want to know what was possible. I have recently decided to stop purchasing ammo online or with anything but cash, but some of m 7.62s are hard to come by in this area.(x39 is everywhere but x54 hunting loads are hard to find. I did find an outlet but they are back ordered. Should be here by deer season tho. x25s are just not available at any of my outlets. It's a good thing we stocked up when there was plenty of surplus, the price has more than doubled in the past two years.) ARs on the other hand are taking over the market. I don't understand that. the only deer i have ever lost was one i used a 223 on. I hit it solid but it still managed to run far enough into the brush that I was unable to find it before it had spoiled.(36 hours later)The shot had punched threw both lungs,even nicked the heart, but it still made it 1/4 mile before it fell. Had i been using my 30-06 it wouldn't have made it 20 yards. I sold the 223 and picked up a 270....good trade.

    I love BOOBIES

    Friendlies could be saved with a simple sign stating "BOOBY TRAPS NEXT 100 YARDS". It might even keep out the honest thief. OF COURSE I am only speaking of after TEOTWAWKI to actually set any. But now is the time to learn skills we may need then. However if this is more offensive than the 100 are so threads about what bullet will cut a man in half or witch ax is a real skull splitter then it's fine with me if it's removed, as I said, I've done my research.

    Pride, before the fall.

    I have a weakness. I am proud. It feeds my pride every time I reach on of the preparedness goals I set. Nothing wrong with that. But my pride makes me answer when being quite would better serve my needs.Oh here i don't mind telling how much ammo or preps I have, here I'm nobody. But in my home area I have a name and address and would NEVER talk so freely about my preps(being grey is the term I think) but the small stuff trips me up...because of my pride. Some of the questions I have let my pride answer that have marked me. while dove hunting with some fellows; "I can't get this shotgun to feed right." my pride stepped in and broke down the gun and cleaned it , reassembled and it worked fine...i was proud. Until the fellow said "DAMN, you know your guns(debatable) I'll bet you have an arsenal." Now a guy I barley know is aware I have multiple firearms. At the cafe a group of 30 and 40 year olds talking about the old days when one says; "I would can but who knows how to do that stuff anymore." my pride answers the call, not only walking this fellow threw thee steps, but adding I have ALL the canning equipment. "well when things get tough I know who to visit for dinner." he replies while I was working a lady ask "what kind of flowers are these?" I say "sweet golden rod" my pride adds "They are edible" She acts interested so my pride starts naming of all the edibles close by and how to use them. she is impressed stating. "you'll never go hungry". I wonder if she will remember the plants I named ...or just my name? While it is honorable to teach it is not very grey. Do you remember you favorite teachers name? I do.....He is one hell of a prepper. If things get really bad maybe he wouldn't mind if I...

    How's your ammo supply?

    We seem to have a wealth of firearm knowledge here, so I'm going to try to learn a bit while I have the chance. I am aware that a 30-06 is a 7.62x63 a nagant fires a 7.62x54 and a 308 is a 7.62x51. My question is this; Other than the head space difference would it be possible to fire the shorter rounds in the longer rounds firearms? I know it isn't a good idea, but if desperate? what would the dangers be to your person? to the firearm? I think I know the answers to some of these question but I have had no formal training. I'm just using common seance. But what if I'm an idiot? I'd rather ask than let my pride cost me an eye.

    Thanks Jcms. I hear/read you are leaving. A shame, Your posts are among the best in information. It is very understandable though, "they" don't like independent's, and for now "they" rule the world.

    Wow. Looks to be a bunch of well armed bunny killers at S.C. I should have known, a high population of Texans here. That's a good thing.

    How's your ammo supply?

    All good points. I have considered getting into it. What would a basic loader cost? I have a stock of powder for...uh...stuff, and even have 200 270 bullets i picked up in a package deal at an auction. In addition to the 270 bullets i have quite a few "odd ball" ammo's for the same reason. Could i salvage the powder and primers from those?

    I have to say i agree wally, but I also think the raider population will pay dearly too.

    I have had the same issue with the golden bullet. A lot of spinners in them.

    What Percentage will make it?

    It's looking like 50% is the winner(as called by jcms). New direction: Taking into consideration that perps by no means guaranty survival, and that each person has different skills,levels of preps....etc.; What percentage of those who consider themselves Preppers WILL make it? Just your opinion. What do you THINK?

    Just a quick note. Wally world has winchester 22lr 36 grain 333 round bulk boxes for under $10. I prefer federal 40 grain but for plinking the cheaper the better.
