I buy ammo in bulk online all the time. In fact I just purchased a 1200 round case of IMI 5.56mm 55gr.
When the SHTF, selling your house will be the least of your worries. Survival trumps property values, have an escape plan, or better yet, multiple escape plans.
They have no fear and no reverance for the living God.
That’s a nice round. Today at WalMart was the first time in a year that I’ve see that caliber put in the ammo case - two boxes.
How much? I’ve almost pulled the trigger on a case of 308 several times then balked at the price.
20 months ago, I bugged out of NYC for Alabama. Its a long story, and I am still having trouble adjusting to the culture shock, but I tell myself that when the SHTF in NYC, I will fully appreciate where I live now.
P.S. The landlord of my really nice 425 dollar a month apartment sent all the tenants big fruit baskets for Christmas! Quite a change from the bloodsuckers in NYC - I was very humbled and grateful...
They will confiscate everyone’s retirement savings which will prolong it a little while.
Is this the same man who told us the EU and US economies would collapse prior to this past Thanksgiving? I know there are associated authors at World Daily Net and infowars that bring this collapse theory to their front page blogs every few months. Don’t take me as a skeptic on the warnings, the signs are there but pretty soon these guys will be ignored when the wolf actually shows up.

I didn’t get a harrumph out of that guy.
Anyone who believes that we live in a time that a major modern city with educated advanced western civilization can not be brought to its knees and turned into a dog eat dog world take a look at this:
Pictures of Sarajevo 15 years ago and today show how the city has changed
How many people have thought of primitive tools & gear for their preps?
If our government could jam through (in less than a week) legislation that robs from the pensions of disabled military retirees - then I am positive that seizure of your 401K is entirely plausible.
It’s been available for several months at my WalMart.
Not in my store. Just today after a year.
Calm down, Johnny. You bugged out a long time ago. ;o)
