The only drawback is that you might not have the help you need to stand watch or to fight a small or medium size group. Fortresses are no match for a determined force. Take a look at the castles in Europe. They couldn't stand up to the low tech armies of the day or even the peasants revolts. If you had neighbors who could band together it might make the difference between living and dying.

I cant speak for him, but I would talk in detail to him about how things might go down. I, personally have given all of my being to Jesus. In an SHTF scenario, I would not blink an eye at defending my home and my family, and any innocent ,good people. I see evil as evil, and have no problem doing Gods work to eliminate vermin.
Every situation is different and there is no clear cut answer to what is best. We don't know what is going to happen nor when and we cannot predict the response of the people or agencies around us.
I am fortunate that I have finally established a property where I plan to stay put and friends will bug out to me, but I do need to plan on a place to bug out to if SHTF where I live.
i would like to stay at my place once i get it set up, BUT depentding on situation i will up & leave. i do not wanna be that guy that endangers everyone else just cause im more confortable at the house. that being said ive done alot of looking for my i.n.c.h. bag & am bruching up on skills that will alow me not to be the guy lugging around a camper bad, haha.

When the wife and I discussed bugging out or staying put, we decided to stay. The deciding factor? Water. If we lived in a city, we would definitely leave. Since we're staying we have adjusted our plans accordingly.
We live on a waterway with a unlimited supply. That being said, we also have to be extra vigilant from raider attacks.
I put this in thought when I got my second home close to a river between my house is deep woods then a river after that 3 loc is a another house with still bars on every door and window and a 360 view on a hill with well water and more country . I think if the Shtf !!!! I stand a decent chance of survial I hope. if all fails cut lose baggage and let it all burn so nobody gets anything
