    Are People No Longer Prepping?

    Anyone notice the number of members of P/F visiting each day has dropped? It's not because we ain't using deodorant. People seem to think everything will be nothing but peaches and cream, now that Trump is going to be the next president:

    See, that's the difference in folks who want to be self sufficient and those who buy into the societal BS of this term that I despise called "Prepping".

    Now's the time to ramp up your self sufficiency goals, preparedness plans etc while the other bandwagon hoppers jump off to buy new big screens and tennis shoes.

    I still am. Now I'll admit that the volume being added to "the shelves" has dramatically diminished. We hit our target goal, and are now just rotating stock. The $$$ we were spending, and every other cent I can save, earn, etc, is going into the "Get the hell out of the Democratic People's Republik of Hellinois" fund. lol

    It's kinda funny. When the GOP took the senate back in '14, an inlaw of mine made multiple comments about things getting better blah blah blah. Then a year or so later the same old crap was going down and there was multiple continued attacks on the 2nd Amendment. I told him 10+ years ago after the Clinton "Assault Rifle Ban" was lifted to buy a semi auto on a AR platform.

    Does the dumbass do what I tell him? Hell No! But he comes over and shoots mine! Finally he wises up and buys a nice modern sporting rifle, pays at least $200 more than what he should have X years ago. But for some reason, he doesn't stock up on ammo. So time flys and then Trump gets elected and my inlaw says "ammo will be in free supply, no reason to buy any now, I'll wait and prices will go down."

    I assure you, he will get caught without any ammo because he will have bought into the popularist view that all is well now.

    Last time I'll say it. If you want to have plenty of ammo, buy a few boxes every week or so then a few times a year buy in bulk and put some up. It will allow you to shoot when ever you want and also have it when you need it. Same goes for Food, Water, Meds, batteries, whatever...

    We are still neck deep in the self-sufficiency effort. I do not see that ever changing. Even if life is going great with no worries about the future, we live much cheaper and fuller lives with this lifestyle.

    Sorry, I've been too busy prepping harder than ever to comment. I believe time is running short and am going to need a few of my preps in the very near, uncertain future.

    True. The sheepoles fears have been quelled. Those that know that things can turn on a dime will continue the quest of self sufficiency. Many People just do not have the attention span or wisdom to prepare
