Hey guys and gals.
 I am moving the previous chat from imtroduction group chat here.
Ok so here in SA we have an urban warfare issue amd scenario playout ehen dodge hits. Scenario offcourse.
Thank you jackalope. Fir the reply on my question about moving in groups. It fits in well with what whiskey discussed here for the US-of-A guys.

I have to say our terrain stretches over harsh environments but the hood thing is we actually dont have too far to travel
 About Less than 400km. From there we could skip borders as aswell. We have a few problems however. Between us and potential safety lays violant rural areas. About 9 i think. So our aim is having atleast 2 unimogs and then our two 4x4's Currently. So if we need to go over mountains we can actually do that. Yes you read right and yes we have gone up a mountain in our area with one of our mogs. Great fun. But in Get out of dodge this can be an edge when needing to get out of a traffic grid locked area. Sa is known for all roads to be in bad shape of some kind. Roads capacity long overshot and overloaded.
With this said we have been looking at maps for many years figuring out scenarios.
Oh and tested them when striking natives block off entire suburban areas. We got stuck in one instance at home for 3 days . Yes eventually cleared we won't comment on how.

I have to say. In most aspects i found advice and suggestions on scenarios very helpfull. As for booby traps... rough salt is nasty when shot.Deterring and effective.

I suspect that idiot congress lady who claimed to be there did not realize that it really was being recorded by the other side.

I wish I could give you info on the cheap pellet rifle but it doesn't have a name on it. It just has an R and Made in China on it. It is pretty typical. The barrel breaks over and you put one pellet in and tip it back up until it clicks onto place. Its supposed to do about 900 feet per seconds but dieseling it is supposed to push it up to about 1100 feet per second. I bought it from a store here that sells everything under the sun. Stuff that ranges from every kind of tool and hardware to toys and cookware. I call it the toy store because its where I go to buy all sorts of prepper stuff at a reasonable price. Its laid out like a big warehouse. If you're looking for top quality, it ain't the place to go. However, brand names don't mean squat on certain items. Things like copper electrical wire or nuts, bolts and screws.

First, welcome Rogue-Metalsmith!  Regarding your vehicle questions, there are many factors, such as the type of vehicles, typical distances travelled, type of terrain travelled, etc.  In our case here, we have two four wheel drive SUV's, 3 motorcycles, one with a sidecar,  a couple of tractors, and lastly a velomobile and a quadracycle. Redundancy is good.
      I  would say a convoy would be safer, if all the vehicle occupants are armed, since the group could potentially lay down a tremendous amount of firepower, depending upon how they're armed.  If the event of a vehicle breakdown, repairs could be effected while the rest of the group provides security protection.  If a vehicle is not repairable, then the occupants and goods of the disabled vehicle could be redistributed to the other vehicles.

Well then gents.
What a warm welcome. Thank each one of you.
 I do hear ya on the "terminal normalsy bias" i think litterally everyone i know here suffers from it. I wish i could take every single one of them on night patrol with me to see just a fraction of our issues. Hoping they could wake up and smell the bacon.

On that note. I wish more ladies could love unimogs. We are a rare sub-breed it would seem.
Currently planning a new build on one.
Hopefully will be our BOV if we need it and are unable to bunker down.

I have to say i have been setting up a list of things we allready have for self sufficiency. And i was shocked. We are well aways along.
To name a few.
 We have alternate power. 2 gardens being resown for veggies. Cattle. Chickens most recently. Non city supply of water. Allthough i think rainwater tanks are next.
So a few things are on my list to do. But seems i have wukte abit underfoot allready.

So gents. Random question of the day
BOV.... how many vehicles would be considdered overkill? And would anyone say convoy travel if needed could be safer? If per say travelling to a BOL?

RM, I am in the U.S.  Great Commonwealth of Virginia.  And you know what they say about Virginia.

To be a Virginia, by birth, marriage, adoption or even on one's mothers side, is an introduction to any state in the union, a passport to any foreign country and a benediction from above.

I still want a Unimog.  But my wife says no.


Glad you like the bacon dancing.  I brought that along when I came here so methinks I have made some little mark on the place! :fuckYeah:

General Off Topic / Diesel firing a pellet rifle

A while back, I bought one of those $30 Chinese pellet rifles. Its OK as long as you don't want to shoot tight groups. Anyway, I saw a fellow diesel firing his pellet rifle and it was pretty interesting. WARNING: Diesel firing a pellet rifle can ruin it or at least cause you to have to repair it. For $30, I figured, what do I have to lose, so I tried it today. Yep, it works. I shot at the side of my tin shed and then diesel fired at it and the second dent was a little bit deeper. It also makes more noise when you diesel fire it. Its not as loud as a 22 but it is a bit louder. If I had to use it for hunting or defense, I would definitely diesel fire it. For those who don't know how to diesel fire it, you just smear a tiny bit of Vicks Vapor Rub(or other fuel) into the cone of the pellet. The extreme pressure then heats the fuel until it ignites and gives the pellet some extra boost.
