Skip to comments.Beware Of Highly-Trained Armed Parasites In A SHTF Situation
Posted on 02/10/2012 12:57:37 PM PST by Kartographer
This morning, I want to talk about these armed parasites. Some time ago I picked up the book Urban Survival Guide by David Morris. On page 86 of the text, which is really a comprehensive twelve-week urban survival course, Morris wrote:
many peoples survival plan consists of buying just enough ammo to take whatever food they need by force. Just two weeks before writing this, I stood in a circle with eight active duty military talking about how quickly things were crumbling. When the conversation moved to preparations, I found myself listening to them mock families who stockpile food and detail their plans on how to liberate it if they ever need to.
Some of the comments were, If theyre dumb enough to buy food instead of guns, they dont deserve to live. and When it comes down to it, my family is more important than their family and Ill take what I need. and I dont have room to store a year of food, but I do have room for another case of .223.

you and me both, only thing I’ve thought about is hunting for it heh. I don’t have the finances currently to prepare near as much as I would like. That’s changing, but not fast enough for how fast I see things spiraling out of control.
I would rather go offer my services (ex soldier), to a group of people that needs protection and assistance in any way I could help, rather than harm good folk and taking what is theirs. Society may go downhill, but God is still in control, and we will be held accountable.
Think WWII ,No bridges make a good defense.
be pretty hard to hunt down all the game, at least here in Canada, heck there’s 14 million geese alone, factor in reproduction and I think there will be some animals around for quite some time. The population would have a drastic thinning out in a hurry which would increase the animal odds.
You would probably fare better in rural Canada but here in the Florida Panhandle which is quite rural, the deer, turkey and alligator populations were nearly or totally wiped out during the great depression.
Deer have made an impressive comeback but turkey had to be reintroduced by the state. Now they are thriving again as are alligator. Also the Florida gopher tortoise (Hoover chickens) came close to being erased.
wow, they mopped up that much down there? That’s incredible.
Well, up here the cold is enough to keep most people out as well, you’re always welcome to come hang in the northern rockies heh. Never run out of water, and lots of food, just have to deal with weather and keeping the wanderers out.
With record gun sales and back ground checks, the lone wolf would certainly be in the wrong place or “kick in” the wrong door within a few hours of SHTF. Roving gangs would be a different story. Organized, armed and hungry.
My BIL says he’s gonna be a lone wolf, toting his wife and kid. Tried to tell him to do otherwise but you know...he’s a badazz. Glad he lives far away.
Water is the one thing we really have it nice here. There are 3 natural flowing springs within 20 miles of me which flow millions of gallons per day, maybe even more than that and the water is more pure than tap water.
There’s a few places that it might be an improvement.
When the emergency is upon us, the time of preparation has passed.”
After a few seconds, however, I realized that many of these customers already looked very much like savage, primitive cannibals, and that maybe I was the one on their SHTF menu!
Body armor? Most people in SHTF situations won’t have it unless they’ve taken it from police. And - only the highest levels can stop rifle projectiles - the class II police use can be made into swiss cheese by a Winnie ‘94 30-30.
“Street thugs”? You mean the ones stupid enought to hold their handguns sideways (not using the sights)? The ones with ZERO wilderness survival skills? The ones who depend on 7-11 burritos for sustinance? Those “street thugs”? They’ll rob and pillage the inner city cesspools and the residents of such who do not posess the drive, will and skills to hit the backcountry and survive. When that gravy train dries up, they’ll dry up - those “street thugs” that are stupid enough to venture out of their comfort zone into the hills, mountains and woods, will last about as long as a snowball in Hades. Foodstamps won’t help them there.

How seriously? My son is type 1.
Black Powder and Alcohol by Leslie Fish.”
Mythbusters did an episode where they tried to make black powder, didn’t work out so well. I tried when I was a kid too. Black powder is NOT easy to make.
Well, it certainly seems to me that it is LEOs who are going to go to the Dark Side, long before the military that the author is so worried about. The military does have some orginization and controls that should last for a while as we slide toward SHTF. Law enforcement does not, and they will be using what hardware and training they have for their own purposes as soon as they figure it is in their best interests. This may not be perceived as much of a threat to the author, but it will be what people experience first, and it will hasten the slide.
Yes and if Memory serves they also collaborated on a book that sticks the finger in the eye of the "GloBULL Warming" movement. Its called Fallen Angels and is a solid read and a good Scifi novel!
Luckily he doesn’t live in my neighborhood - he’s in CT and I’m in SC.
