Right there with ya….lessons learned.
As Angie said, moving is the only real solution…anything else at this point results in zombies at the door.
Stashing your stuff might save you some loss but they’ll still be coming. desperation when nothing found will lead to further violence. So IF you survive it, sure, there’s supplies to fall back on.
I went with a combination of going grey, stashing and displaying hard target.
The cats outa the bag, cant put it back, so I decided to make myself a very visible hard target until we actually move. Verbally and visible. AR’s in full site going to the range every weekend for practice, 1000 rounds visible at purchase, Very frank talks with neighbors of training every weekend for long range and CQB training with vets and local sheriffs that have formed a network(Happens to be true)…..Discussions of how(And this actually happened) a work associate stated to me “They don’t need to prep, He’ll just show up at my front door if SHTF…ha, ha, ha”…..And how I told him very seriously I answered “If SHTF and anyone shows up at my door for anything that they will be met with the wrong end of a barrel by multiple Vets and myself…No one would be allowed in and no extra food will be available to leave and bodies on the lawn will help us deter the next door knocker.”………..
This was stated to the nosey neighbor that often offers his un-asked opinion on the neighborhood goings-on in day to day conversations……I know my message got out when another prepped neighbor told me he heard about the conversation….lol……he also heard from same said neighbor that I had sold my stuff(Food) as I was in financial hardship…lol…another white lie.
Truth is, nothing short of moving will fix this….But, hard target ideology will deter all but the most desperate and if it comes to that, neighbors would be hit first(softer targets), and then they’ll hit you after all others have been hit and they were going to hit you eventually anyways…..With enough time passing in a SHTF it’s inevitable whether you’re known as a prepper or not so better be prepped for that as well.
Anyone here can disagree but no one will state anything other than opinion since it’s not happened yet in the US……This is the route I chose. It doesn’t matter since the cats outa the bag and can never be put back in.
Best solution if you ever open your big fat mouth is to move….The only real security is to never open said mouth to begin with……
If you already have, like the dumb-asss that I was, broadcast hard target until you move.
We still wave to each other but the prepping jokes stopped immediately.
