Nice. Just find the neighbors that have food & water but no gun and you're set to survive.

Re: Disaster Preparedness Kit


Representing for the ladies!
Currently:
Water;
Canned/dry food, maybe a week's worth;
Cat and dog food, likewise;
Plenny of tools, always useful;

and of course ye olde weapons stash:
4 shotguns: a Winchester, a Remington 870, a Franchi SPAS-12, and a Saiga-12
3 rifles: two AR-15's and my baby, a Ruger in .44 magnum
Oh, I dunno how many pistols, the standbys would be the Glock 23, the Springfield 1911, and a Ruger SP101 that's my personal favorite.

Got about 600 rounds of what we call "zombie loads" for the pistols, they're hollowpoint defense rounds we load ourselves because it's cheaper, but it's only for emergencies because we only carry factory ammo for everyday. We'd have more, but it's hard to get primers right now.

The shotgun and rifle ammunition stash isn't too good right now. Sort of used a lot of it up and haven't replaced it.

Oh, there's knives and swords and some martial arts weapons around here, too, if things're really that bad.

I had a plan, but now I'm thinking of revising it to: 1. Become best friends with Rachel, 2. Drive to her house before the zombies block the highway
