Looters will overrun your Bug Out Location

Think your Bug Out Location is safe? Think again. Looters will overrun your camp, kill you and your family, take your supplies and there is little you can do about it.

The difference between you and the looters, after they win the war in the cities, the looters will head to the countryside looking for food. The survivors from the cities will be battle hardened, have an idea of what they are doing, and will make short work of your defenses.

How many survivalist gets hands on training on using their weapons? How many people in your group have combat experience?

There is a difference in tactical shooting experience, and combat experience.

A lot of people thinking going out to the range and shooting paper targets will prepare them for when the crap hits the fan.

This video got me to thinking about the whole looter worse case situation.

Locking the doors

survivalistOver the past few months I have gotten in the habit of locking the doors during the day. The doors have always been locked at night. But here lately I have been keeping the doors locked during the middle of the day.

Security is not a serious concern during the day. My wife and I live in a low crime rate area. There is rarely, if ever, a serious crime around here.

Its not that someone is breaking into the location and stealing the stuff, I think its more along the lines of someone “borrowing” the supplies and not bringing it back or replacing it.

Over the past 15+ years, I have been making it a point to keep certain types of survival gear at the bug out location. Whether its blankets, flashlights, knives, ammo, first aid supplies, water filter, hand tools, eating utensils,,,,,, I like to keep a general stockpile of gear at the camp. I don’t know how much time and money has been invested over the past decade alone to make sure we have plenty of survival gear for some kind of SHTF situation.

Now for a video about a bug out exercise on Labor Day of 2010. Labor day was used to test my families bug out plans.
