You sound like a well rounded young lady. Just my opinion but if you opt not to carry a firearm or form a partnership with someone maybe consider getting a bigger, well trained dog for protection. But if the stuff really hits the fan you could expect the really bad guys to harm your dog too. So a firearm makes sense.
I second these statements. If you go with any .22 LR, consider Aguila Supermax ammo . In a Rifle it has 204 foot lbs. of energy. This is the best .22lr ammo for self defense . About $40 for 500 rds. When you shoot it , compared to regular .22 ammo, you will really see and feel the difference.

Here are a couple of musts, though, if the S slams into the F and it is chaos time.
You MUST have a firearm. Period. People will be panicking, and bad people will be off the leash. Be ready for the threats. Live with the burden of a heavier load than die empty handed. I'd rather shoot someone in the face with a .22LR rife at 20 feet than hit them with a staff.
Second point, get with good, like-minded people. Your chances of survival will go up, considerably. ATL is going to be a dangerous area, and there will be you and several HUNDRED thousands scrambling out of the city death trap. There is a reason why the army uses squads and platoons, so don't try and be a Lone Wolf McQuade. Take PrepperRecon and Leon's advice, and make sure you tag up with Leon; he has crazy-mad skills you definitely need to learn from him!
Unless you'd be happier on your own..

It was cute... too bad it was staged and not a real fight.

Sad... since this forum could be the one thing that makes a difference for them.

I hope she makes it, whatever she does.
You have the right mindset. I would advise that you purchase at least 1 good handgun, as well as a rifle. Having a dog is great - protection, etc. My family and I have 3 large dogs and our bug out plan is very similar to yours. Head to the Appalachian mountains here in Virginia. Do you have any longer term plans in place? A bug out bag is a good start, but I think planning for 1-2 weeks. Do you have a tent? camping gear, etc? Pepper spray? Do you have 3 different ways to make a fire? A hunting rifle - .22 even would help you hunt for food. Along with your fishing gear this would improve your chances. Message me if you have any questions or comments. Good Luck.
Female or not, being alone is not the way to go. You need to find someone else you can trust, male or female. You can't watch your back 24/7 and everyone needs to sleep. Hand defense is a last resort. A small handgun is a minimum be it a .22 or what ever. Unless your the exception, your not going to be GI Jane, don't waste the time trying, a few good friends are much better.
