    Default to stock up or to wait out, which have you chosen?

    with the current hole our country has fallen into, and the seemingly endless rise in cost of firearms, ammunition, govt. surplus, and imported goods, are you stocking up, or trying to wait it out. The Mayan and Chinese calenders spread the prophecy that 2012 is the "end of days", and with the current situation the planet is in, will you be ready if the SHTF?

    I'd rather pay more NOW, than need and not have it LATER.

    Ammo prices do not go down. Buy it now, as a year from now it might be 30% higher.

    If your under 40, as your folks about inflation in the 70's where the average house in the US cost 15k.

    EXACTLY CORRECT!!!!

    No way in Hell you will pay less later.

    AMMO IS GOING TO GO UP 50% next MONTH.

    A 1000 rnd case of Wolf 9mm will run ya $300.00 shipped. See it about the middle of June.

    IRAN pretty much told us to piss off about nuke issues. Think about all of that really modern RUSSIAN armament they have. We show off all of our new stuff on the Military Channel for everyone to see. But, the real bad ass fighter waits quiet in his own corner. He don't have to wave a flag.

    But, the real enemy you and I will have to take out already lives here with us. As soon as food and drink is depleated, a massive raid will begin on every house everywhere. Bad part of being in a big city. You will need several thousand rounds just to keep that huge mass back from your door.

    Police officers will be at home defending there HOOD like you will be doing. The expended military might be trying to set up a front line who knows where. Kind of like that movie, "RED DAWN". They won't need to use nukes. Too much goodies to take and have their way with.

    There will be a few who have. But, there will be 100 have nots for every one who has. And, they will want yours.

    You will do well with a couple thousand rounds of 9mm and 7.62X39. But, if you have 10,000+ rounds of each plus other backup, all you will need to do is avoid taking a hit from an enemy sniper.

    Stocking up on .22 mag ammo. My biggest worry will be beer. I could probably live on beer and rice for a year or so. I'll eat some cabbage palms from the swamps down here so I have some veggies.
    This small town down here will go bonko if we don't get beer shipments.
    I usually drink about a 6 pack a night. But if the country goes looney and we can't get our beer shipments down here. I see trouble. Big trouble.
    I don't know. I don't really like violence. But if beer shipments get cut off or they start rationing it. I really think I could become a looter.
