    We all die. And it doesn't matter how many miles you can run nonstop when you've got a bullet in your chest....

    Just the other side of the coin.

    Depends entirely upon what actions you take in that time.

    I would take Army soldiers as fit, many of them function on reduced sleep and food schedules for more than a month in combat ops. They're used to, and trained to it.


    Sitting at your house is fine and all, but what happens when you have to actually do something ? Now an unfit person is burning considerably more calories than the fit guy. As well as putting himself in a higher level of danger from injury.

    How about replying to my posts/points before we go any further. Then we can move on.

    Now I get the impression I've hurt your feelings and you just want to play the emotion card ...

    ... like you attempted to do with your rape comments.

    We all can see where you are going ... people will do anything for their spouce, child or if they are starving.

    So, spare us all of that.

    And I'm not arguing either, simply providing the other side of the coin.

    Country fit is probably the best all around description I've heard. I'm going to use that.

    It really just depends on what "fit" is for you (reader, not you personally)

    I agree, a marathon runner or body builder is likely in poor shape for sustained periods of difficult time/low food situations. Then again, if we have to bug out on foot, that marathon runner is more likely to make a sustained, long distance trek than someone without such training/cardio.

    Hard to put into words but you've got to know how to move efficiently....... Even most military guys can't do it for whatever reason.

    I can't run 10 miles anymore, but I can slog across a 80 acre rice field in waders toting a big shotgun in freezing temps and never breath hard. Just growing up outside I guess?

    That's what I did wrong on 3 combat tours......
    We never took our slings off. People worry me sometimes with what they believe and try to pass on as knowledge :dunno:

    You never engaged because you didn't understand.

    And you won't try to understand because you would first have to admit you were wrong and/or didn't understand.

    Now you show another personality trait - having to be part of the crowd and liked - a follower. Not a good trait in a prepper.

    Your next reply - you don't know who I am and what I've seen and done.

    While I agree that many firearms are underrated, particularly when it comes to engagement ranges, and you bring up many good points, I feel the need to address these remarks.
    Slinging a rifle is easy and very simple to do. If I could manage to do it over the decade I spent in the middle east, then people could very easily do it if a true societal breakdown occurred.
    Keep your slings on. Get a good one like VTAC 2 point or something similar.
    *if this reads as snarky, I truly don't mean it like that.

    You would think the acronym would be WWROL.

    It seems you comments have exposed several Mad Max TEOTWAWKI visionaries. I understand your comments in that if a rifle is your primary weapon have it in your hands. Yes, there are uses of a sling and currently, there isn't a law against them.

    The proper weapon configuration depends upon the nature of the event. If what happend in Argentina happened in the USA - walking around a city with a rifle slung over your back would get your noticed by and probably targed by the bad guys. The police would probably put you in jail.

    1929 none of the "west coast hillbillies' around here were jumping out of windows.

    Hard to measure someone as "poor' because they raise their own food.

    Yup poverty sucks, the poor can't afford to buy salmon around here for a fancy meal, they have to catch their own.

    Some folks don't get to brag about how high their heating bills are because they burn wood they cut themselves.

    the folks in my neighborhood don't get to complain about their water bills, we are all on wells.

    Rich city folk go "camping in the woods" the poor folk around here call it "fall hunting season" , or elks season, or spring bear season.

    " Poverty " is something a politician promises to fix if you vote for him, in the real world it's a relative concept. America's "rural poor' do pretty good by the standards of the rest of the world.
