I think plenty about urban survival...I live in a city of 2 million people with only a couple of roads in and out. For me to leave means crossing a minimum of 2 bridges, although one is so small it would probably be forgotten in the event of any major unrest. Still, seeing as the most likely threat here is earthquakes, I have to be prepared to sit things out for a while. I do have a boat, but then we would just be on the other side of a huge river...still in the city, with no car. If we are both at home, then it would be pretty plausible to hit the bridge and get out of town while things are still moving, but any delay would mean we were stuck here. I am pretty well set up to do just that...we have a good stockpile of food and water (over a month) and our house used to be a welding shop, and it is HEAVILY fortified! Think 5/16ths bars on all the windows, doors you would need a vehicle-mounted ram to get though, steel roof and steel on the bottom 3 feet of most of the walls, etc. If we want to keep people out, they are staying out. That leaves getting through the day-to-day difficulties. Well, we're pretty set up for social unrest...I would not want to be the guy who comes for me or Erin, that's for sure. She is a pretty die-hard revolver person, but finally this year has picked an auto she likes - coincidentally the same one show earlier in this thread, the two-tone CZ-75b. I was always a 1911 guy, but finally switched to a Glock 20. I am still using M14s as my primary rifle, though...have a few of those (as well as some other stuff too). So I feel pretty well set up in the event of any of the probable disasters around here. My concerns mainly relate to getting to Erin in the event that an earthquake happens while she is in the middle of town or something. But I don't feel there is much I can do to mitigate this short of getting her to carry a HAM radio, which is not likely. She bikes most of the time anyway so she will still be capable of getting home or close to it, and I have a like-minded (and, scarily, better-equipped and trained) friend just on the other side of the bridge she would have to cross to get home, so there is a good rescue plan there. One thing I was thinking as I was looking through a lot of the gang photos here...if you have to have a gang problem, you really couldn't be much better off. The "white shirt" guys and the "orange shirt" guys...might as well be the "neon bullseye" gang from my perspective. I would thank them for picking those uniforms if you get the chance! Finally, as it stands right now I can not legally (and consequently do not) carry a handgun - nor do I feel like I need to at this time. However, in the event of major social unrest, I would reevaluate my commitment to the laws of this country. Fortunately at this time I do not believe that I have any great need to carry, although I do know people who feel differently. On the other hand there is usually an M14 in my 4runner.
