I'm sorry, but I can't take those civilian "operators" seriously on shows like Doomsday Preppers. Yes, they have tacticool ARs, but most of them are obese. It makes no sense to be a prepper with "OPSEC" in mind if you're in terrible physical shape. I laugh out loud when I see those guys and gals go all tactical in simulated firefights. A trained military or special law enforcement unit would wipe the floor with these folks, and if SHTF really happens, looters with bolt action guns and scopes will win every single time, no matter what gizmo they have strapped to their ARs or chest rigs. That being said, I enjoy the show, I just find it laughable at times.
