[quote=elsinga]I think a tall building is not very easily defended… I think I would be more safe at a rural place with natural fortifications, say a mountain area with large caves. I saw something like that on the internet somewhere, a completely camouflaged place. [/quote]
I think it depends, vs an army, a tall building wouldnt be good, vs a mob of angry Joe public’s it would be awesome.
I glanced through the thread and as far as I could tell I saw no mention of the combination of rifle pistol etc
Some time ago I standardized to .357 magnum to ensure that most of the bulk ammo I keep would work in a hand gun and a rifle. So I have one of each (along with other weapons in varying calibers).
I also recommend having a 12guage shotgun you can buy one that takes 3" shells but you really don’t need more than 2.75 make sure you keep a mix of rounds in both 357 and 12, i.e. in 357 you want JHP for home defense but not for hunting. Same with the shotgun, some bid shot will do for home defense but you want 00buck and perhaps single slug for hunting.I hate myself for this but I turned down the chance to buy an AK47 for $250 in 2007 the price of these has risen significantly and will likely continue to do so. Ammo has gone up at least 30% in the last year. This trend is likely to continue for some time.Oh don’t forget to buy toilet paper too
It may sound crazy but youre taking the first steps away from the matrix. These doubts you have regaridng "conventional wisdom" will grow until you come to the point where you want them to have as little control of you as possible.
Lots of great feedback for you in the thread.
One more thing – conventional wisdom is what got us here.
I care not for the preconceptions of others with regards to fiat or gold.
I do know for a fact that if most Americans had the chance to go back to September 08 and convert their 401k’s from stocks and fiat into gold that almost all of them would take it (some wouldn’t LOL) and of course most would then change it right back into fiat after the October collapse.
In short, you should use gold and fiat when it serves you to do so, ignore the naysayers because both groups are wrong at one time or another.
I wish I had documented my transition from anti gun to totally pro gun as I would be able to compare notes with those who still seek to disarm the nation and those who try to uphold the right to protect themselves. Alas I didn’t keep a record and can recall little of the process of transition but for some basics.
1) Protection as the law doesn’t always arrive in time. I have a chance to protect my children against most common threats of violence we may encounter.
2) A sense of security which leads to a better quality of life, I sleep better knowing I have a chance if my home is invaded, this comes not only from the firearms I keep but the alarm system too.
3) The right, if I feel the need to stand up to oppression, fascism etc etc – Evil triumphs when good men and women do nothing.
There are of course many other reasons but suffice to say I respect those who still oppose gun ownership and the utopia it represents, I too still dream of such a world, as long as they in turn respect my right to own weapons while we wait for such a world.
Thanks for the info.
Just a quick FYI – If you have interest free loans/credit card debt etc then do not pay those off. Before paying off any debt (in todays market) first try to move the balance to a low or interest free solution.
I’ve found enough evidence to support the grand plan theory, Ive also fought hard to disprove it. Regardless of whether someone upon high is orchestrating this, I agree with your assessment that "a grand delusion" is at work.
It is institutionalised. It is part of the system. The war on drugs was a cover, just like the war on terror.
Will we see gangs manipulated and demonised and used by the system to further its ends? I wonder? A war on gangs?
Bingo, I hope one day the majority of people will come to understand that, until then were doomed to sheepish responses.
I hate to say it but he or she is just stating the obvious, there is nothing new in what is written. Most here have known the system is in terrible shape.A month from now when the pound (By the way the pound goes way before the dollar) collapses the writer will be saying, "See I told you so".
Try and focus more on protecting your assets and family from what is coming rather than listening to prophets of the obvious.
