    keep stocking on gold and food but if you don't stock up on guns... well, the guys that stocked up with guns and ammo will have your gear and food. this is a truism since the dawn of time.

    My emergency plans are also light on defensive weaponry. All of my guns were lost in a tragic boating accident.
    Hakkaa päälle!

    Dilbert is probably my favorite cartoon. The writer has it down pat! I worked in a "cubicle world" with some idiot managers over the years, although with the federal government rather than in the corporate world. He has been there/seen that/done that, as have I.

    I think that was supposed to be a *winkwinknudgenudge* statement.

    I had a meeting with a financial planner last month. She stated that to prepare for a crisis, you need: food and water, something to barter with, and the means to defend yourself. I remarked that you could always trade bullets for food. She agreed.

    Her husband related an encounter with one of his gun-fearing neighbors who is like Dilbert - almost prepared. When the guy boasted about his food storage, the husband, to make a point, said, "I have guns. Why should I store food when I can take yours?" The guy was speechless.

    Salt is always good to have for many reasons. Can't eat gold or hide in it or purify water with it. I guess you could smack someone in the head with a big gold bar if you had too.

    Yeah, I lost a whole safe full of guns when it fell of the back of the trailer during the move to my new house. By the time I realized it, and I returned to look where the safe might have fallen off, it was already gone. I did find a broken rocking chair laying in the road so I'm guessing that's where my safe fell off too.

    Damn, don't you hate it when stuff like that happens?

    Just curious... Why did you have all your guns on a boat? And how many miles off shore were you?

    Absolutely right!
    The military uses a layered principle of defense.
    The first layer of defense is always KNOWLEDGE.
