Any one who underestimates SHTF, as I have read a few comments poking fun at folks being prepared such as yourself, me and many others in here is a fool. That same person was probably the guy beating on his neighbors door in a panic pleading for help during the LA riots and Hurricane Katrina. Looting, lawlessness, cayuse and mayhem was the norm. Thugs were shot in the street by rooftop armed property owners and left for dead it was so bad. Remember the '97 North Hollywood shootout? LAPD was outgunned with their Beretta 92FS 9MM and 12 GA shotguns. They had to go to a local gun shop to borrow some AR-15'S along with some magazines filled with SS109 M855 penetraters. Pathetic and it was a wake up call, s*** does and can happen. Many other things have happened over the years as well. The real question is as asked by a neighbor............. "will you help me"? You or me......... "only if you didn't p*ss me off making fun of my firearms"? Best of luck to ya, Bon Voyage d***head!! Hahahahahaha

Umm, er, ah -- isn't "cayuse" a type of horse?

cayuse - Wiktionary

Small horse. Those small horses were running wild in the street. I could have said Mustang! Get back in your pen or I'll tan your arse Ed! LOL

This YouTube says a lot people. I'd recommend watching it if I were you. Listen to the words. This isn't a game, it's your life. If you want lies to make a quick buck and sell you something, read a gun magazine sometime. You could just listen to the salesman who could care less except making a few bucks on you. He most likely won't treat you any better when you return and realize you've been taken. I speak with many years experience. I have nothing to gain out of any of this. My family and friends have been there, done that, and don't want to see anyone lose a life over something that fails at the moment of truth. You can bet your arse, that everything I've mentioned in these two threads works! If it didn't, I sure wouldn't tell you so. You want the truth, so here it is. Some of you are probably p*ssed at me. Well, suck it up a little. Someone who has no experience whatsoever could be reading this stuff. I'd sure hate for them to go wrong just because no one else had the balls or the knowledge to speak up and correct mistakes. That's what I do. If you have been on the range long enough, you see the guy down a few lanes..... "GD this and GD that......... what a POS"! Well, someone either wasn't helpful with him, he ignored the advice, or just got plain screwed. It doesn't have to happen. If you don't know, ask someone who does. Make sure the person whom your asking knows WTH he is talking about before running with it. 1000's of good choices are out there. Be a informed customer is all I'm getting at. Personally, I'd take the guys advice that has made a lifelong hobby out of firearms, not some noobs. I'll close with this. Never get so good, you feel you can't do any better.

With respect, BTDT (1/327, 101st ABN, RVN 1965-66), and AFAIC it carried little meaning beyond the period of enlistment.

Your mileage may vary considerably, of course.

Friend, I was living in the LA area during the Rodney King riots (I still do, in fact). I grew up on the central Gulf Coast which means I have direct experience with Hurricanes Betsy, Camille and Frederic, among others.

Take it from one who's been there -- any horses running loose in those streets were the size of elephants, and they were meaner than snakes...

I believe it! I've read about it and saw all kinds of footage of it. I'm sure you felt reasonably comfortable with that 1911 and other stuff you had. If you have that kind of stuff, you sure aren't a amateur by any stretch of the imagination either!

My thanks to you for the compliment. The "kind of stuff" I'm MOST comfortable with, however, are those that allow me to reach out and touch someone from 500 to 800 yards or so (a bit further on a clear & relatively windless day). There's not much use for that "kind of stuff" in most situations but still...

As the saying goes: Age, experience and treachery will overcome youth, enthusiasm and ambition every time.

Mac,

Interesting that you should write that (except the "shape-shifter" part). You, better than anyone on this thread, will probably appreciate the facts that (a) Owl is in fact my - ah - "totem", and (b) I'm one of the very few for whom this is not a bad thing.
