    375 300gr FMJ anti-materiel rounds. Plan is to introduce fear of God as soon as they pass No Trespassing signs on road in. But physical location makes riots or invasion unlikely.

    What I have a lot of is FMJ, basically target rounds for, well, target shooting.

    So Sierra Match Kings?

    What about 77gr tipped match kings?

    And why 77gr and not 69gr?

    This is what's fueling demand for guns and ammo by people who've previously never owned guns or owned them but not taken them out for years or decades. The sorts of people who don't riot / don't go to riots are afraid the riots will come to them.

    You haven't heard of charter buses bringing rioters to locations?

    Don't disagree with sentiment, but where are those safer places going to be?

    Outside of cities. People in rural or relatively rule areas face little risk. 99% of the unrest will be in cities. Not necessarily relegated to major cities, but cities nonetheless. We live 20 miles from Nashville. I’m not even a little bit worried.

    The worst thing to do is abandon one’s home with no time to prepare or pack. If I lived in a major city, especially in a blue state, I’d consider leaving.

    Away from people.

    I can look west and see mountains. There wont be riots in 99% of the mountains no matter how bad it gets. There could be in some ski resort towns, but that is it.

    Cold, snow, lack of food, distance, etc all make it difficult to riot. Then having a non-target rich environment and lots of places to dispose of animal carcasses makes there areas not inviting. Then to east. The plains are very sparsely populated. Again, not a target rich environment and unfriendly natural environment.

    Lets be honest, political riots will occur
    1. Where it easy access for the rioters.
    2. Lots of targets
    3. Areas where they spread fear easily.
    4. Areas that political leaders have told LE to stand down and not stop the riots.

    Same ammo as always, M193, No 4B, 9BP.
    The worst "unrest" we have had thus far was a committee to remove the Confederate memorial, so I have my hopes.

    That is why my cousin and his family moved out of Brooklyn to Stowe, Vermont.

    I normally don't believe in "warning shots" but in this case that is what I'd try first!
    Maybe they'll get the idea this dude don't play and he probably has an older TV anyway!

    I'm surprised some pissed off crazy hasn't been triggered and unloaded on one of these "peaceful protests" with a full auto or bump stock.
