    copy tech preppers

    so I have an old copier pedestal packed with baked beans waiting for Armageddon, but no weapons system in place to protect it - yet.
    I watched a prepper TV show where some dude and his hot daughter built a giant catapult that could hurl engine blocks down his driveway to protect his bean stash (and his daughter). I think the reload time was a bit lengthy (half a day), so every shot would have to count. What systems have techs got going on?

    I've been slowly collecting machine parts, which I will, someday, arrange together to build a giant, protective robot.

    I prefer systems that have copper jacketed lead propelled by gunpowder .... various calibers ... EDC Kahr CW40 or CW380. In home Mossberg security 88 12ga Pump 19" Barrel .. long range Mosin Nagant 91/30 762x54r and for small game hunting Marlin mod 60 .22lr.

    In the yard I do have some traps... some passive other activated by a control in the house.

    As far as food/water stores... well, lets just say I won't be hungry or thirsty

    Don't forget medical supplies bandages.. liquids... and know how to utilize them
    IF you take meds try to store about 6mos worth.

    Dried beans/rice can be stored safely in 2/3ltr plastic soda bottles.

    Every payday I try and buy 1 case of canned veggies/meats for when SHTF

    Clinton/Obama were the ones that had Putin on edge.. they brought down the economy... hell the market is already rebounding ... and It takes more than one person ( president) to be able to launch a nuke. It takes SEVERAL people to approve and input launch codes.

    3 minutes without air
    3 days without water
    3 months without food.
    And to add a quote from Bear Grills(Survival Doc's)
    "3 seconds without thinking."

    ... In OZ we've had 40,000 years of preppers. If we want to survive long term we only need ask the original in habitants of this great land. The aboriginal people have been doing the same for quite a long time. Their innate natural survival is second to none. There are some good documentaries on bush tucker man indigenous TV. I've learnt some things about the natural bush that I never knew. First think, where are you running too, and how many others are running to the same place. The best positive about a negative fight is that you learn who your real friends are very quickly.

    If you want to feel happy again clean the toxins viruses, chemicals from your body so you can think clearly. Turn off the -- idiot box(TV) and stop streaming (the sky is falling) doom and gloom into your life. Quit with the Monkey-see-Monkey-do syndrome. There is no one up there in all those castles up there in the sky. Stop focusing your metal and physical energies up to the imaginary palace in the sky. NO ONE is coming to pat you on the back for a job well done!. You may as well quit waiting for it to happen.

    Its never too late to make family,neighbourly, indigenous, city, country or world wide friends... Love is the glue that binds, hate is the solvent that separates and destroys...
    No philosophy required here just raw fact.

    Choose which life stream you want:
    For ever running away from anger and hate of your final self (for it is the creation generated by self) , or acceptance and tolerance in friendships.
    (And don't let boredom confuse the meaning of either.)

    It's a sh!t easy choice pick one....
