A word to the wise...

is sufficient. What is happening in the realm of guns and ammo in recent weeks is very similar to what will happen to the food situation given the right scenario. And it will happen. Watch and learn, but don't be caught short on either.

I would have to say those that aren't caught short on ammo and guns won't have to worry about being caught short on food.

Good point, but a lot of good men and women are slow to catch on. My caution is for them.

Thumbs up

Good heads-up for those who need it. Buying a 50lb bag of GOOD rice and several more of dried beans NOW ,is like buying cases of port when it was 28 cents or so--

I'm not sure, but it seems you may be of the position that those with arms can take what food they want by force. Is that so?

There are a lot of confused souls out there.

Jimmy, you took the words right out of my mouth. Plan to take care of yourself, not to interfere with someone else's plans.

Point taken!

Many loved ones aren't heeding the call. For myself, I like to think I'm over-prepared, but then how much is enough?

At this point I don't go to the range, just to save ammo!

Yeh, I was thinking the same thing. Go buy a bunch of 22 to shoot and
hold on to the big stuff. WRONG! I couldn't find any 22 to buy. 10
different stores, no 22,s. The same situation could happen with any
desired commodity. During preparation for hurricane Gustav, I set out
to buy a few loaves of bread. This is 2 days before the hurricane even hit.
I went to my local grocery and the shelves were empty. I went to 3 other
stores, including a Walmart Super Center, and they were all out.
I waited untill the next day to look again. Deliveries had been made that morning,
all bread was gone by 8am. I looked at 3 or 4 other stores, same story.
I finally bought 5 pounds of bread flour and made my own. I learned a
good lesson though.
The winds had not even blown and the shelves were bare!

I do hope you are referring to the ability to hunt game. You sound dangerously close to having wolf syndrome, which is the wrong mentality to have about prepping. You may be able to jack up some hippy preaching non violence but if it's you eating vs. my sons you lose everytime.

I got both freezers stacked deep. I'm sure the power won't go out, will it?
