YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE...MAYBE TWICE!
OK, so in all the movies, a person can grab a weapon they've never used and score head shots while running and hit moving targets. Good for them! Now to the real world... You need to practice a bit before youre doing that.
Komrads, train with your weapons when you can, Ive had to run and do an obsticle course then fire an M9 pistol... with your body aching, heart racing and gasping for air.... your aim is no where near as good as it is usualy is! Train your body as well as your mind. Knowledge will lead to survival. Teaching yourself new tasks will be very valuable. Learn from your fellow Komrads... we are a wide variety of individuals, from many different backgrounds, each bringing somthing to the group, no matter how small it might seem.
In the aftermath, it would be important for us to know survial skills including hunting/fishing (and dressing the game), gardening, food canning, etc, etc.... Mechanical skills will be needed for any vehicles inthe group... basic carpentry for rebuilding things... the list goes on and on...
Post what you feel could be somthing you have knowlegde of, or ask for some information that you want to know about and maybe a fellow Komrad will lead you in the right direction.
I will go to the range with some other people, but they are not as worried about Z's or anything like that, some of them do accept that some type of "event" can happen, i.e. riots, revolution, home grown terrorism...
Unfortunatly they dont want to do any field manuvers (other than some WWII reenactments LOL).
I am actually going to start physically training myself to get into better shape, with the help of a few others.
Thanks, but Ive got alot of work ahead of me!
Plus it benefits the Wounded Warrior Foundation, so thats whats motivating me.
