G M's guide to surviving CW2

(1/2) > >>

G M:
It has already started, though most don't recognize it yet. This is an asymmetrical, 4th generation war. There won't be big military clashes between uniformed troops. This is a full spectrum war that includes old and new media propaganda,  economics and politics. What we have seen take place so far is only the very early stages of something that will get much more violent and strange as it progresses.

Core principles:

1. Be armed and trained to defend yourself and your loved ones. The rule of law is already dead and you are on the menu. Plan accordingly.

2. Anticipate systemic infrastructure failures. Things like the electrical grid going down for short or long term, either deliberately or as a byproduct of violence. Have beans/bullets/bandages.

3. Reduce your "attack surface". Be "off grid" as much as possible. Harder to kill you if they can't find you.

4. Urban areas are death zones. Especially on the coasts. Go rural now, if possible. If not, have a plan and a location to get to if your city plunges into uncontrolled violence.


Much more to follow.

G M:
Avoid the gunfight, if you can, but the first rule of gunfighting is "have a gun".

If you go to gun forums, you'll often get advice that you must own the latest and greatest weapon systems that cost thousands of dollars and may not be legal where you are currently located. My recommendations are based on weapons that are probably legal most anywhere in the US, decent quality based on the price point (The most BANG for your buck), and when possible has a potential for hunting as well as self defense.

1.The first on the list is the Ruger 10/22. I would advise a Takedown model in stainless steel for ease of transport and resistance to adverse conditions. https://ruger.com/products/1022Takedown/models.html

2. 12 gauge pump shotgun. Much less friendly to the new shooter, but it's flexibility and ballistic effectiveness vastly outweigh the difficulties in learning to run it. During the "Ammo-pocalypse" on the Obama years, 12 gauge shells were the one type of ammunition still available at the stores. It can be used for small game, big game and self defense quite effectively. Obviously, there are many 12 gauge shotguns for sale, this is my current recommendation for the best hunting/self defense/price point option: https://www.mossberg.com/product/maverick-88-security-field-combo-31014/

3. The snubnose hammerless revolver in .38/9mm or .357
Often ignored as a defensive weapon in current times, it brings many qualities to the table. It does require grip strength that may make it difficult for women or those with physical limitations, but learning to run it under stress and using it in extreme close quarters life or death fights are where it shines. It's also very easy to conceal and carry in non-permissive environments. See the first rule about gunfighting above.

Yes they are. Proper selection of defensive ammo is important.

G M:
Buy in bulk. You may wish to purchase with a degree of operational security. Cash at gun shows/gun stores is one option. I recommend using a CMRA (Commercial Mail Receiving Agency). I prefer the mom and pop shops rather than the big chains.
