I live in rural part of a rural county. All of my family, along with one of my brothers and mom and dad are farmers. We are smack in the middle of a night harvest right now. Running two mechanical harvesting crews, six tractors, forklifts, semi-trucks and it is now 10:00 p.m. The sheriff just called my mom to tell her there is a very bad man running loose in our neck of the woods right now and to be prepared. My dogs are loose, my family is safe in the house, I handed a spare .357 mag. to my dad and I am well armed with a .45 on my hip and a rifle within reach. I guess the point is, an emergency/SHTF situation never comes at a convenient time and we should all always be prepared.
