  1. Prior to the shift…

    Red brick walls. It will stop most bullets. Technically you only need to go up to your windows, or about halfway up your walls. If you’re uphill, you don’t need much brick wall; if you’re downhill, you need more brick wall. This particular prep won’t get your neighbors in a buzz; you’re just renovating, and you like brick.

    Your living room bay window is an extreme weakness in your defenses, as are your glass patio doors; if you don’t wish to get rid of them, you will have to defend them when the time comes (sandbags, plywood, caltrops, etc).

    Invest in steel shutters for your windows. Not decorative shutters, working shutters, even if you never use them to stop bullets, they can still be used to stop wind blown objects, hand thrown objects. Again, it won’t raise red flags for you neighbors, you just think shutters are cool accents.

    Likewise, steel roofing will make water catchment easier in a number of ways. Bird dropping will wash away easier in the rain, and you won’t get tarry grit as with asphalt shingles.

    For the extra paranoid, you can buy bolts of kevlar, and make your own curtains and I guess blankets. The secret to kevlar body armor is that it’s not taut, it moves freely with the impact, so free hanging kevlar drapes is an adequate defensive measure. Hell, it has a nice grid weave to it, so you can needlepoint/cross-stitch pretty motifs and protect whole rooms with tapestries… while also increasing R-value. Again, everyone has drapes; and that family portrait tapestry… you got one damn fine wife. You could even use them to hide things like your library, or… other… stuff, like… secret doors? This is expensive, but once you get into it, you’re limited only by your imagination, and… pocket depth.

    Also, it might seem odd to cover your walls with planters, but you can claim to be a hipster, which will completely disassociate yourself from prepper. Many plants thrive in sandy soil, sand being a good bullet stop (which can reduce damage to your brick), and it will also increase R-value, while not waving red flags.

    This is just fortifying your home now. If you have a BOL, do the permanent things there first, cuzz, money and priorities, and limited ability to transport these things.

    1. @mwnciboo
      So you’re an anarchist then. They always have the best plans. That’s why they’ve taken over the world.

    2. Why bother….If i was assaulting your place i would smoke you out with a fire, by setting fire to your house, I wouldn’t waste ammunition trying to shoot through brick. Wait for you to come out and I’ll shoot you, or you burn to death. Fortifications are static positions and they always have blind spots, get in close without being seen and a fortification is done.

    3. @DT Undercover
      Yes, and I liked that tip. I knew nothing of bedliner gook, other than it’s not in my truck yet.

      The problem I have with the other two goons, is they made the immediate assumption that my OP was the be all and end all of my defensive measures. Here’s a secret; I’ve done none of them, cuzz rule #1, I just plain don’t have to, even when it comes to natural disasters; they just aren’t necessary for me.

      The reason I come off as hostile, is the nature of their comments are polarizing. They went all the way one way, in order to disprove my points. And they failed, I did not need to respond, but I humored them in order to allow their full stupid to blossom.

      You will need to learn how to do this too. Because these fucktards are everywhere, bringing people down because it’s the only way they can climb up. And they will take charge if you let them, and they will fuck everything up. All your hard work, all your community’s hard work, before and after the shift, these fucktards will ruin it all.

      I don’t want to be a part of a community that gives them any more credence than they are worth.

      I shit you not, if this thread wasn’t recorded, and it went on long enough, these fucktards would eventually provide real solutions, that were gawd damned word for word of the OP, and people like you, would praise their brilliance for it. That is how experienced I am with shitbirds like them.

      Get a book on psychology, you’re gonna need it.

  2. Canadian Prepper Watched ten minutes of this video and I must say so far it is the most informative video regarding EMP’s. Just subscribed. Thanks.

  3. “THE DISASTER PREDICTION” APP- FREE— Will give you 72 hours advanced notice of Solar CME – we have had the app for several years, it is spot on! 👍🏻✌🏻🇺🇸

  4. ACTUAL EXPERIENCE HERE IN VENEZUELA.
    7 days no power.
    Other places 11 days.
    1. If you live in a good neighbourhood, NO PROBLEM. BAD neighbourhood, SORRY, FROM DAY ONE AT NIGHT, PEOPLE WILL CLIMB UP FENCES WALLS, WHATEVER, WILL STEAL EVERYTHING IN YOUR YARD, ESPECIALLY VALUABLES LIKE WATER PUMPS… This will happen in good neighbourhoods AFTER DAY 3.
    2. PRICES OF EMERGENCY GENERATORS WILL BE IN THE THOUSANDS…. after day 2.
    3. PEOPLE WILL GO SELL TIME ON GENERATORS TO CHARGE PHONES AND OTHER DEVICES. people will make lines for HOURS JUST TO GET THEIR CELL PHONE CHARGED. by the way, THOSE PLACES WILL BE ROBBED SEVERAL TIMES AND IN THOSE TIMES, YOU MAY BE BEATEN TO DEATH IF YOU RESIST GIVING UP YOUR PHONE (OR SHOT, OR STABBED)
    4. people will freak after 4 hours BECAUSE THERE IS NO WIFI. THAT WILL BE YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM…
    5. people will start taking payments by online transactions (as in no card required, just you accessing a computer and making the transaction if the phone lines are still working (which they VERY LIKELY WORK for some time). This will become the norm after day 1. Cash or online transaction.
    6. People will start panicking for gas (especially for generators) after 14 hours of the blackout. (at first everyone will think it is a fixable easy problem of a few hours, but half a day later and it is a whole new story)
    7. People will start worrying about their food after the first 6 hours. In fact they will go and get ICE AND THE PRICE OF THAT WILL BE PROBABLY ASTRONOMICAL if you can find it at all.
    8. People will go to restaurants and buy lots of cold food like sandwiches and things that require NO COOKING, since there is no water to clean up the mess of cooking. Places that have those will be jammed for business.
    9. People will PANIC, FOR REAL, ABOUT WATER AFTER 2 HOURS OF THE POWER GOING OFF.
    10. People with kids will have to be with them at all times… IT IS A BREAKING POINT FOR MOST PEOPLE BECAUSE YOU SHOULD NOT MAKE LINES WITH KIDS….AND YOU WILL IF YOU NEED OR WANT THE STUFF… THEY WILL COMPLAIN, GET SICK, DESTROY PROPERTIES, ETC.
    11. If you have never carry water, SORRY, YOU WILL GET PAIN, BE TIRED, GET SICK, YOU WILL DESTROY THINGS BECAUSE IT IS NOT EASY. HELL, I SWEAR CARRYING WATER IS WORSE THAT YOU BUILDING PIPES FROM SCRATCH… I know because I have helped doing the second one and men… I would rather build the pipes and the water tank and all that… with certainty, no regrets, same choice FOREVER.
    12. You better have lots of gloves and mask and suture kits in your medical kits… You WILL need those.
    13. FIRE will be your greatest fear EVER if you go thru one (like I did and so many of my neighbours)
    14. You better be prepared for EARTHQUAKES NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE. you will experience them. Small, soft, whatever, but you will feel them because of explosions near by or other stuff.
    15. Half the people would rather go and eat of the garbage than stealing… But the other half… well… that is another story.
    16. After day 3, most people will stop taking their medication. After a few weeks, SORRY… YOU WILL SEE PEOPLE JUMPING DOWN THE BUILDINGS AND NAKED RUNNING ON THE STREET AND PLENTY OF OTHER CRAZY STUFF, the men tend to suicide, women tend to run naked everywhere.
    17. People will be living on the gardens and backyards of their property and outside… inside it is NOT an option due to heat, or smells, or you being likely to be robbed because they just need to break a window and throw a molotov thing and you will have to open the doors and all that… so… no, most will just sleep outside, by the way, if it is summer, they may do it naked… If it is raining or something like that they may prefer go to the car and just camp there…
    18. some people will make cages for their crazy and their elderly family members… You will see those cases ALL the time, because after they loose a aunt that is found naked hitting someone, or your dad that does not even know his name and he is giving away small pieces of info about you like they remember your car and where you work and if you have money and stuff like that… well, you do not want them outside and with no medication, they will hurt themselves or others… so… solution, locked them in your own house with no clothes, no windows, no nothing. This is especially truth for women.
    19. Biggest problem for normal people… they break their glasses, and now, you cannot get one more… so, you are basically blind… This is NOT something that most people would even think about.
    20. Most people WILL trow garbage EVERYWHERE THEY THINK IT IS OK, like… your backyard… YOU WILL GET IN TO THOSE KINDS OF PROBLEMS

  5. Receive and transmit information is way! There was time when we communicate! Before internet media! It was called society. It was a time when we could sohiize before, me to, when men and woman could speak openly. Without repuucussions!

  6. A radio is just a way for more well endowed people to locate you. You need to have only VERBAL plans. 1st rule of fight club. Dont talk about it.
