What future event are you (predominantly) prepping for? Are you preparing for just about any SHTF situation?

Are you more focused on preparing for the grid going down? Some sort of politically motivated civil unrest?

The apocalypse? Natural disasters? Why? Why not?

The most likely are weather related events such as severe snow storms. That was fairly easy. Working on long term tough economic times, emp and so on. Lots to do on the long term stuff.

When I first started prepping, I was really just preparing for a rainy day. I wanted to make sure the pantry was always full.

Later on, following Hurricane Katrina, I started getting more serious about prepping for weather emergencies.

The last year though, I have begun to be more concerned about social unrest and what could happen when people decide they have had enough...

If you live in Texas a big problem was the flood of street gangs that hit Texas from NOLA. Very violent individuals that will start a gun fight over a wrong look.

I keep having recurring nightmares that the angry godless commie democrats will try to come kill old retired cops. Thats why our prepping is heavily dependent on good shooting irons and plenty of ammo. Few cans of Beanie Weenies..Sardines etc.

I was actually in Mississippi (out in the country) for a few years when Katrina hit. Even though I was a long way from the coast (near Water Valley, MS) we received massive damage and extended power outages from the storm. A lot of people who had evacuated to our area, ended up having to go further north, up to Memphis. In some situations, I was reminded of the goodness of people coming together in an emergency. In other situations I was horrified by how quickly people resort to looting and destroying each other. It was definitely eye opening for me...

My wife is a native Mississippian. Grad of Ole Miss. If you lived in Mississippi you either rooted for M U or M State. What say you?

This. Most of my family, to include my parents, still live in the upper part of Louisiana; I had already moved to Missouri. They lost power for 3+ weeks and received minor damage. A church in the nearby town opened it's doors to some people that were displaced. They destroyed the church, to include ripping toilets from the walls.

Before Katrina, I used to laugh at friends and family when they talked about hiding weapons because they believed that there would come a day when the police would come for them. I truly believed that they were being paranoid. Then, in New Orleans, following the storm, they (the police) started confiscating guns. There are still people who believe it never happened. https://www.nraila.org/articles/201...-confiscation-can-and-has-happened-in-america

I'm prepping for... bad weather/interrupted power, supply line disruption, the obama apocalypse, and eventually (if there is one) to become mostly self sufficient.
