As far as preppers go, I am probably the least dependant on firearms, yet I have to admit that they are necessary. I think the pushing issue, however, is the lone wolf thing. It is important to have associates in your prepping. Someone has to be watching your back. You need people you can trust. Someone mentioned a network of preppers in Georgia. Perhaps they have people in your specific location that you may wish to work with. If your considering the SSGT's offer, hold out for a dowery.
