    Are you really going to be able to defend yourself if SHTF etc?

    Combat conditions are horrible, and most people ever involved in it arent exactly happy, or were really prepared. So, if SHTF, and you need to defend yourself in the woods, home, out where ever , will you honestly be ready.
    Whats that 30000 rounds of 556 going to do for ya..
    I think reality dictates you will be on the run with little time to carry a load of supplies.
    So, what tactics can help you defend, hide, survive in suburbia, or even out in the wilderness when gangs of perps show up..

    Had some experience. All I have to do it stop the ones that come for me. I am not running.
    New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.

    Karl Marx said, "Destroy their culture, rewrite their history. Ruin their art and literature, and defame their heroes, by offering fabrications to scandalize that which they considered good.
    After reading this Obama said I am on it.

    rural (very), 556 is for varmints here, I may not be well versed in defending my Alamo.. but then again, the gang of thieves won't be well versed in attacking it.. if we must flee, there will be caches at hidden rally points.
