Frankly, there are a couple of members who have shown their true character here. They have no interest in helping or offering constructive advice. They simply want to be jerks behind the keyboards and are dragging the sub forum down.

It has been moderately entertaining though. Or should I say moderate-less-ly.

As kirgi08 said, that's definitely painting with a broad brush and also "a whole lot of a assuming going on". I bought my first car - a 1969 dodge dart - with money I got from selling one of my own cows. A cow I bought as a calf, with my own money. I bought my first black-powder revolvers and my first cartridge handgun (a ruger 'standard' model; the precursor of the MK-2 series) similarly in the 70's; with money that I'd made, not been given.

This I get completely. It's a fairly common situation nowadays; people who immigrated here and worked their way up, having to now watch the ground being dug out from under them. Trust me, it's no less disheartening and enraging for those of us who were born here and worked their way up only to now see the same thing.

Thing to keep in mind is that, while a lot - maybe a majority - of americans are lazy parasites now, not all of us are. Some of us are the ones that are being bled by politicians to placate that parasitic voting bloc. My dad was a kentucky hillbilly child that only went to the sixth grade, fought in WW2, and then came back & worked in a detroit factory for decades; driving more than an hour each way to work every day so we kids (I'm one of six children) wouldn't have to spend every day in that miserable city. We used to go with him sometimes and sell bags of still-in-the-husk sweet corn out of the back of the pickup truck to the guys during shift change at the factory. He had very little education and took zero charity, and managed to work his way up to owning a paid-off farm. Then while I was in the service, my mom and he divorced & sold the farm. So when I got home from the army 31 years ago, there was literally no 'home' to come home to. No family farm to run, no inheritance, not even any of my personal stuff. My sister or my mom (neither would admit to it) had wrecked my car. My clothes, my guns, my tools, even my porn stash - all gone with nobody willing to tell me what had happened to anything I'd previously owned. I had literally just the clothes on my back and what little money I'd saved while in the service. And like most young single guys in the service, 'saving' wasn't my highest priority, so that wasn't much. Now, 30-plus years later, my wife of 27 years and I own our own security company (a small, local one; not one you'd have heard of, but the biggest in our county), and our boys are pretty much grown (one graduates college this spring). And now, when we should be starting to reap the benefits of it all, we see more than 40% of every dollar we make, being taken from us, largely for the purpose of placating the parasitic voting bloc I mentioned earlier. So yes, some of us 'natives' do indeed "get it", every bit as much as a non-native does.

Thing is, while most americans don't "get it", you have to remember that 'most americans' aren't on these type of forums either. My take on things anymore is simple. I love america, but most americans just flat piss me off.

Your mistake, is assuming I'm spoiled, because I grew up in America.

And it's the same common failing in most of your posts in this thread.

You don't know me, you've never met me, and the only information you have about me, is what I've chosen to release. You have no idea the hardships I've faced, or anyone else in this thread/forum.

You try and tell a bunch of people how it is to survive, and seem to to think your the only one who's ever made it.

If survival in an eastern block country is the topic, I'm sure you will be a go to guy for information. But simply because you survived there does not mean you have any frame of reference on survival in say, back woods Alaska.

Conversely, my experience, does not neccisarily apply to Kirgi, or LG1, because we have vastly different circumstances locations and scenarios.

Wow - epic read. SO much to digest, and consume. Learn from it all gentlemen. I say leave this open.

First of all - the fantasy prepper thing was great (while it lasted) You have to have a sense of humor. Unfortunately, a lot of the fantasy preppers probably don't think they are fantasy preppers.

Kozak is a bit tragic. The guy is angry, and the kind of person who stereotypes at others even as he hates those who stereotype him. Sad. Guy needs to lighten up and live his life. And I agree with those who are telling him he better be careful when painting with a big brush. Most Americans are average. That's reality. But maybe 25% are exceptional. Some exceptionally crap, some exceptionally good. And you never know which are which, and exceptional at what. He gave zero details about what he was through or survived other than when it got tough, he apparently got out of dodge. And then he worked his but off. Sensible, looks that way. Hard worker? Perhaps. Prepped? Who knows. Throw out some real information Kozak, or all I'm hearing is complaining internet whiner hating on America. Tell us something we can use. That's called sharing. All you sound like to me is the kind of people here you hate.

Countrygun vs whoever. Interesting pissing contest about the possibility of living off deer. The fact that it is people having such an argument - and it is mostly Countrygun sounding / feeling superior to me, shows that neither has an open mind to see what's really going on. Hope you are right.

Now - the real interesting debate:

Will flight to the country result in the devastation of game populations?

Assuming we are talking about a MAJOR SHTF - one where it affects the entire nation and all population centers....

A huge chunk of people will die. WIll it be 10%, 50%, 75%, 90%...don't know. But that is a MAJOR issue before we start running any discussion on the subject.

Next - we have to consider that desperation means no rules on game acquisition. So current game/hunters etc data only applies as a best case scenario.

Now, I have been hunting under what i would call good circumstances. I have went out and not came back with a deer more often than not. So let's also consider, it isn't as easy as even hunters think it is. So what is the trade off on baiting trapping etc....vs difficulty of the task. And of course, some of those city folk refugees grew up in the country....

SO - loss of life initially, unrestricted hunting, skill of hunters, and of course the p[opulation itself.

And NO ONE considered this: An asteroid strike or appropriate plague can kill deer too....

I think underestimation of your foe - mother nature, is a point to consider also.

The above with sensible thought could have been a good topic. I'm thinking about it...

And LMAO at all the crap around the good points! Keep writing!!! Nice to see you back Kozak.

Yeah! I don't necessarily agree with all your stuff, but it's details, not key points. Kozak should definitely noty be including you in his talk.

It means that you are. Most heart breaking stories of hardship in US do not compare to normal existence in the most of the world.

Go ahead and share the hardest things you had to live through so that I can laugh at them compared to mine.

I think you misunderstand something. Take a look at what I actually did say I'll highlight a couple of things for you.



(post 91)
Yes I am living just mile from the ranch my Dad grew up on with an extended family. They survived on "poached" deer to a great extent, as did their neighbors. There never was a shortage although they would go a little farther into the woods and off the ranch to hunt for a while to let the "on ranch" population closer to home build up. At no time did they go more than a few miles. There was never a shortage and today they are positively a nuisance.


(Post 95)

We would be affected, but feeding families on venison won't be a problem for those who are capable.



Now that is what I ACTUALLY SAID

One of the key points "Ranch" and "Capable"

We are a rural community and many small ranches . It was more than common, if you understand rural economics in tough times for the rancher to, say, slaughter a beef cow. Now without refrigeration unless he has a large family he is probably, like my family did, sell barter or trade the majority of that beef and since every pound had value, Same with the hogs and sheep. The family would likely end up eating the free venison shot on or near the ranch. The beef having been distributed would mean that many fewer people competing for the venison.

Nobody bothered to look at that part of the equation and really "ranch" would have been the clue to those who now a thing about it. But funny thing, none of the experts bothered to even ask "What kind of ranch?" I am so impressed with the attention some people pay before they start their naysaying.

Oh and even your idea of "Flight to the Country" I think that is very overrated. Our society is even more dependent on the Cities than it was during the depression. And exactly where are these "Flee'ers" going to live? In tents, in our climate? hardly likely. Try a winter here in a tent and let me know how it works for you.

"Feeling Superior"? Hardly, this place sucks, it is rather unpleasant place, with a lousy climate clannish population and will never create a surplus of anything, which all makes it very unattractive to those fleeing the city, if any actually do.

I think, especially those who still live in or near cities, "Preppers" today seem to have the idea that thousands of people think like they do. It would be a reversal of history for it to happen, and there are much fewer people in society today that meet that funny word I used "Capable"

But go ahead and assume away. It's the internet and none of the assumers will be a bother to me in the real events that lay ahead.
