energy sources

Although I don't think relying on electronics is desirable, it may be unavoidable or a big benefit. A solar array and even small wind turbines can be attached to a house even in the suburbs. I live in Austin, and they provide assistance to add this to your home. In fact, their program goes like this...

froggy

get a PDR for drug interactions. I am actually a pharmaceutical chemist. After learning which basic families of drugs should not be taken together, it is fairly easy to self administer (not that I do). What is great about these handbooks is they have a decent section with actual pictures of the tabl...

Ceramic and kevlar sounds pretty expensive. Also somewhat restricting. The cheaper paintball armor should suffice. Basically ballistic nylon over a foam rubber. What's nice is that you can test it in the store with your own teeth. I would recommend a standard bullet proof vest for the more cognitive...

I agree with most. Coordinate your neighbors for a common defense. Do not expect to be able to withstand a determined attack indefinately. You may be able to hold off the initial onslaught, but further defense will require a lot of $ to be put into your house. For most of us that can't afford that, ...

When I was in Korea 7 years ago (that long already?) I was doing turret maintenance on my tank. I pulled out the coaxial machine gun ready storage box and lo and behold there was a Gulf War I vintage MRE. Frankfurters. Storage conditions were obviously very poor. Heat from hydraulics, being locked. ...

Interesting

I have to say, the best dog...well, I'll have to quote my father. My father was a burglary detective for many, many years. He's interviewed many, many theives and undisputably is an expert in home security. Many people say that the best home defense weapon is a pistol, flashlight, etc. That is true....

Train like you Fight

My take on practicing is this...if you plan on bugging out from your house, then you shouldn't have to drive somewhere to train. You should always start from your front door. Walk to where you need to go with your BOB. (minus firearms unless you are a legally licensed CCW). A 2x4 would help simulate...

A suggestion for local responses

Another source of training is your local police department's community outreach program. Basically it is a "COP" program, or Citizen On Patrol program where you get a brief introduction to police procedures. It will give you a good idea of what Police capabilities are and what you can depend on them...

Group Preparedness

As is obvious to most people, a group is stronger than any one of it's members alone. It seems that most people in this forum assume and prepare for natural disasters on an individual basis. With a forum like this it would seem that someone would have organized localized groups, or squads in this ca...
