Ahem. tongue.gif
Water.
Lots of rice and red lentils, which cook faster, need less soaking, and seem to be kinder on the insides than beans. Lots of different spices to vary the flavor of lentils and rice. if it's a disaster, it's gonna be a gourmet disaster. Peanut butter -- several 10-lb tubs, and something like hardtack, that lasts long. Bottled salsa, as well as the usual canned goods, and several ristras of dried chilis, which are good for resistance to colds and flu, and also hold their vitamin C in case fresh veggies and fruit are hard to get.

If it came to it -- I mean really stocking against a siege during chaos -- yes, some kind of firearm and a lot of ammo. I can learn to shoot one when and if I need to use it, I suppose. (Dogshirt is either laughing at me, cussing, or taking a long pull at his drink as he reads that. ) smile.gif

JC -- Devil Dogs are good, but I think Twinkies last even longer. If you saw the little animated film WALL-E this summer, you remember that that's what the robot is feeding his pet roach, 700 years after the last human is gone. laugh.gif

Any of you guys read Cormac McCarthey's "The Road"? I believe they have made it into a film with Viggo Mortenson, which ought to be something to see. In that book you see the man and his boy find and break into a cache that has everything one could want squirreled away against a nuclear attack, including a roll of (useless) krugerrands -- and left completely intact, because the family never made it to the shelter.

Interesting you should ask.....been thinking lately about going to the grocery store and stocking up on:
>canned goods-tuna,soup,fruit,vegies,PB,etc.
>powdered milk
>water
>bags of navy beans & split peas (for soup), pinto beans for frijoles (refried beans), red beans (for rice & beans)
>freezer food (mostly meat)

I am seriously thinking about planting a garden in my yard next Spring...that is,
IF I have a house next Spring.

Living on a farm is sounding better all the time.

Melissa, I was thinking the same exact thing...adding a garden to my yard!

At todays gun show, prices were down on used firearms. Ammunition was down a little, rifle and shotgun more than handgun. Tomorrow is the last day and I made out my list. The crowd was good but buyers were few. As I am a member, I may get a table when my shopping is done and see who comes to me wanting to sell.

Slainte,

What's a good, light starter pistol for a little old lady who's got a bit of arthritis in the wrists?

I would recommend the 9MM makarov. Small, compact, economical and easy to shoot. And ammo is easily available.

I would agree with Dogshirt. 9mm is adequate and recoil isn't bad at all. I have a Browning and a S&W. In todays market, they are both priced lower than I paid. (that is unusual for firearms but I guess it is a buyers market now.) I have not had the opportunity to fire a Makarov but would expect it to be a good firearm. If you can get the opportunity to test fire it all semi auto of the same manufacture are not equal. Today there are handguns designed for the size of a womans hand and you can get them in colors.

Hope you find a deal!

Slainte,

Stormeil:

I have to disagree with the lads. I have a 357 which I like better and shoot better with it. The smaller guns are only useful for concealing and carrying about. Since I do not generally go around with a gun I would rather have one that shoots truer. Go to a shooting range perhaps with someone that has several different ones and see what is comfortable for you.

Thank you for the suggestions -- I'm not exactly at the shopping stage, but just exploring the idea. If the economy is going to be jinky, the crime rate is likely to go up again more generally in the city, not just around the drug-trade areas. Got to protect that stockpile of lentils and peanut butter . . . smile.gif

I think you are right.

It wasn't till this year that I was serious about a handgun. We were broken into during daylight hours and sometimes I home alone. If things get worse, I really don't like what we might be facing.

Along with my "stock pile" I have lowered my profile. My jewelry is locked up and I wear nothing but a watch. My health even helps in that I am so thin that I do not appear to be eating regularly. I do not recommend that one though. The people I have run across that are unprepared through no fault of their own is frightening. There is food available but little help in my state for heating assistance. I have talked with too many who have no heat now and winter is nearly here.

Unfortunately I worry about all of these people and that will probably be my "end".

Slainte,

I made two trips to the gun show today and covered most of what I wanted. Prices were a little better but there were less people selling today. I have some trade goods now if needed. I did notice they were selling a lot of hand guns. The concealed carry instructors were passing out a lot of literature.

Slainte,
