Beans, Guns and Seeds – the three things that are key to surviving a long term SHTF situation. Water should be a given, there there is no real need in discussing that. If someone needs to be reminded that they need safe drinking water, then natural selection needs to take effect.
Why do I put Beans, Guns and Seeds in that order? Why not have it GSB, or BSG,,, or some other combination?
Beans – your food stockpile
Guns – security
Seeds – renewable and sustainable food sources
A few weeks ago a buddy of mine and I were talking about food during a long term SHTF event. Most survivalist have some kind of food stockpile. But once those food stores run out, what then?
Group 1 – Bug out to the wilderness to live off the land.
Group 2 – Have some kind of homestead setup with a garden, livestock, fruit trees,,, renewable and sustainable food sources.
Chances are group 1 is going to develop dysentery, and either starve to death, or die from some kind of infection.
Group 2 will have shelter, fresh food, safe drinking water, security, private property,,,.
Ask yourself, if society as we know it right now, where would you rather be, camping in the wilderness, or safe at home in your bed.
Some examples of my BGS theory:
Freeze dried foods
Food stored in mylar bags
Remington model 700
Black eyed peas
