I think there has been some good advise in everyone’s comments. When I answered Whirly’s question my response was directed to my imeadiate situation. I couldn’t even count or think of all my errors. 20 years ago I was concerned that I might have to deal with minor civil disturbances. Well I thought, I’m well armed I’l ake it ok. About ten years ago I became concerned with the overall condition of the country, but I didn’t have a realistic understanding of what would transpire if shtf. Additionally our dependency on electronics blossomed in the last 20 years creating a higher need on independent sustainability. 20 years ago if power went out I could still find stores that could operate and make sales. Now that is impossible.
