Bingo Cuda,

It frustrates me to see both parents working to keep up with the joneses when it's not necessary.  My wife punched out of the workforce at 7 months of pregnancy with our first and never looked back.  We believe that the wellbeing of our children trump material gain.  Now I get that there are situations where there is only one parent or both parents HAVE to work to make ends meet.  But I'm talking about the rest who covet material things at the expense of the kids and expect the school system to raise them.  Then wonder why little Billy is on dope and always in trouble...

When is the last time you saw a mass shooting at a gun show, NRA convention or shooting range?  Thought so.
But it could happen...you have to admit that. For some reason one of us might just say, "Hey, I have a gun and ammo, why don't I just shoot the place up!"
Don't take such a cavalier attitude about this! Those who have never handled guns might be right you know!

Well a little back story.  My wife thought I was crazy, collecting weapons, ammo, hiring a professional weapons trainer to do 1:1 lessons each week.  Every time I would try to explain, she would shut down.

Then one day, it happened.  She watched a news special about EMP and the vulnerability of our grid.  So I tossed her my copy of Lights Out and from then on it was a different conversation.

I tend to be very analytical and methodical in my approach so I sat down with her and we went through, for us, what we thought would be the most likely scenarios and built outward from there. Thus the concentric circles were born.  That also gave us the ability to tackle things in an organized fashion.  Why buy land in Idaho for the ultimate BOL, when you can't survive 4 weeks without electricity or water in the event of a natural disaster?

I'm starting this thread to document my decision process and progress towards my BOL and retirement site.

Now I know we will all have differing opinions on the opsec aspects probability and execution. This is just my thoughts. I strive for a balance between probability and usability.

I first sat down and developed a plan that I call concentric circles based on likelihood and scenarios.

The circles represent scenarios in order of likelihood and I have executed in order of probability.

Bug In ( most likely, highest probability) 2-4 weeks in duration.

Hurricane preparedness
Minor civil unrest
Some contagions
Short term power outages

Short term bug out( next most likely). 4weeks to 1 year

Major contagion.
Major civil unrest
EMP

Long term bug out. (Things are never going back to normal)

Nuke
Major EMP
Total economic collapse


I'll come back and break it down in subsequent posts.

If you were in an EOTWAWKI situation and you had to leave your house with only one weapon, what would it be and why?

Forget alternate scenarios, just roll with this,, what would it be?

I'll start.  I'd take the Wilson combat 870. Reliable easy to find ammo for, makes mince meat out of zombies.  Wife can operate.

Nate, just rolled in yesterday about 2:30. Did the deal on the phone and went to pick it up this morning. Also went to the steel supply place to get some building materials. Going to add another door to the shop and add a lean to on the back to park equipment until I build the 40x60

Don thanks for the tip. It's a 38hp tractor. Manual trans. Two sets of rear remotes. Plan on getting a log splitter to run with them. I will look into the bucket teeth. Need to weld on some hooks to the bucket too.  Probably add a LED light bar

Based on everything I looked at this seemed the best set up. I refuse to buy the new tractors with emissions. I missed a 44hp hydro that got sold when I was in CO. I found a nice Deere but it had 2200 hours on it. Ultimately buying from a reputable dealer weighed heavy on the decision. They are about 25 miles away.

Ken, I'm learning. Ran the box blade some today to take the crown out of the road and getting it prepped for some crushed granite.

Did learn to get it on and off the trailer without using the ramps. 4wd and a little bucket help and walk it up.

If you came to this town looking for a fair fight, you came to the wrong town.  (Obscure Stacey Keach reference from Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean)

I don't hunt to be fair to animals, or I'd use a sharpened stick.  I hunt to put meat on the table period.  I want to kill and kill efficiently. If I can whack that animal from 750 yards, then, I'm  good with that. I get that some people want a challenge and to each their own. I have friends that are avid bow hunters and they all say Matthews.  I'd like one just to have another skill I don't currently have. Let us know what you end up with.

Tate that's a tough one. First no compromise. Your house , your rules. If he makes a bad mistake you are liable because he is not an adult.

Second, dishonesty is a sin and sneaking around is because he knows he's doing something wrong.  Take him to the morgue and let him see first hand the impact that drunkenness has. 

Let him know that he has lost the most precious thing, your trust. He will have to earn it back but until them he will be monitored.

Thanks. I have longer term plans for a grid tied solar system with off grid components standing by to be put in play if the grid goes down. I've not completed the research but I believe I can get rolls batteries un filled and then add acid when I want to bring them on line.

For short term outages Id like more conventional back up.  Since I was planning on bulk storing diesel for the tractor and truck and that diesel gen sets are more efficient per gallon I was leaning mil surp diesel but sounds like a propane system is the right way to go.

You don't want to hear about my jumping on the tractor the same day as the operation!

Big, Really BIG mistake. More than all the frozen peas in Northern KY could cope with!

Ha ha!  Yes I know. I drove myself home from the procedure. It was a torrential downpour and the traffic was horrendous.  It was 1:45 to get home.  I paid for it.  Lortab was my friend for the next three days.

Redneck 3rd grade?  You're talking my language!  No fruit loop. Interesting observations.  My contention is that the piston system in an AR is an afterthought and is not as robust as the AK. Thus the failure and limitation of the piston driven AR.  As for SBR reliability, I've shot most commercially available ammo and my hand loads in my SBR and it eats it all. Unless you get some way out of spec ammo, I wouldn't expect a failure. Which would afflict all, regardless of barrel length.  Most people that build ARs bolt parts together and don't u derstand theory of operations. As you clearly do. Thanks for sharing.

The weak part,of the piston gun is the beating the bolted on piston stricking surface takes, especially on a FA weapon. Occasional use semi weapons function fine.  Run the snot out of them and failures happen. Regardless of barrel length.


So I guess theoretically I agree that pistons are a great design, but in practical application,the piston AR is a novelty and not a life or limb weapon because it was not built that way from the ground up.

Well it's time to DOT the Master DOT.  I just arrived at the KOA in Abilene. We decided that a one shot trip back to houston was not viable for the kids. I'm sitting here waiting on the 5er to cool in the comfort of the truck. At 7pm it's still 102. So AC in the dually and a beer is just like being in CO.......

And Ken. I highly recommend this if you don't have it.
