    Where we live is no different than so many places is the US, Canada and other nations.
    We are about 17 miles from a town of less than 9K. The 17 miles are sparsely populated and if they make it this far welcome to a land of bears and big cats; not to mention serious snake country with copperheads, water moccasins and timber rattlesnakes. The terrain is mountainous with V shaped valleys also known as butt sliders.
    Registror, do you seriously believe you and your pocket pistol and underground hide would have a chance in Hades here? Dude, you are only kidding yourself.

    OK, we aren't a motorcycle ride or a car/truck ride from a city. Other than starve to death, just what are they going to do to survive after a month or so other than feeding the carrion eaters? To survive requires planning, supplies, knowledge and a dose of reality.
    Registror, grab your BOB and head into the forest and stay there for a few weeks, Then let's know how it went for a few weeks and not the rest of your life.

    Controlling your mind, like having the focus and discipline to post in the correct forums and use proper titles and keep discussions in single threads? That kind of control?

    The pocket pistol is the one you have advocated for multiple times on this and other forums.

    The round doesn't care what type of firearm launched it. a .223 from a bolt action (I have a model 70 in .223) is every bit as deadly as one launched from an autoloader. You aren't going to shake off a hit from grandpa's 30-06 simply because it wasn't an autoloader, or wasn't your favored round.

    To dismiss these weapons out of hand is stupid. This kind of thinking can and will get you killed.

    Never dismiss a serviceable handgun, rifle or shotgun of any type being used by a determined individual. The only thing that changes when using an "obsolete" firearms are the tactics you employ. If your not paying attention a farmer with a 120 year old Winchester M1897 can still smoke your butt while you rustle his chickens.

    I think most of these "shows" are fixed.
    I'm talking about real life post SHTF not some tv show.

    never has bothered me any, especially when I had a silenced .22lr handgun and could go hunting. in the artic, I'd have to settle for a slingbow, shooting ice balls at snow men, I suppose, But making a clear $900 per waking hour is easily enough to entertain me for 50 days.

    if someone cant control their mind then they will have a lot of trouble post SHTF.
    lots of people here going nuts because of the several lock downs all going on about their "mental health".
    most people arent used to being alone for long periods, its the human "herding" instinct.
    being alone is my natural state.

    started a topic can you control your mind?

    can you control your mind?

    the first half of the Alone Tv show challenge's 100 days is a lark. So it's the second 50 days, spent "holed up" in the little debris shelter, 4x4x7 ft, triangular shape, basically a cocoon of debris and tarp, that's the really tough part. Can you handle 7 hours at a time with nothing but mental constructs to occupy your mind? I have done so for many months at a time, and without pay. So if i'm clearing $1000 an hour as I do so, I can laugh at the "difficulty" of having to do so. Those who cannot will have to catch 50% more food, or they'll lose 50% more bodyfat. than I will. 200 lbs more fish (each) would easily have gotten both of the ladies of season 7 to 100 days. and 100 lbs might have done so. it certainly would have done so for Callie, since she came within 10 days of her goal, while Kielyn tapped out at 80 days. Since my way gives you a full month of netfishing with a full 1800 sq ft of 1.5" netting, it's inconcievable that you can sweep a seine thru 200,000 cubic feet of heavily baited water per day, in a lake well-proven to be full of BIG fish, and not catch at the very least 3 lbs of fish per day. with 300 sq ft of seine and 4 big, baited net traps. it's much more likely that you'll catch 40 lbs of fish per day, not 4!
