    This thread is turning epic. EPIC.

    I'm lovin' it.

    I think right now it's on-par with the Acura NSX Forum's trolling of one of their members' records of underage sex.

    And it's getting to the level of the NOS energy drink in the motorcycle's gas tank.

    Not nearly Gecko45, yet. But I'm hoping.

    :lol:

    All you really need to do after the apocalypse is find your self a couple fatties. Turn one into fattie jerk with some salt(Fatties ALWAYS have salt near by.) and you can sleep in in the other one like a Tuantuan.

    You guys can laugh if you want. Just a recommendation for you...you may want to use something other than a .25 pistol in a shtf situation. Not trying to be too critical, but there are a lot better options out there. People who know me consider me a survival expert. I'll take my chances. I've read a lot of stuff and watched some pretty intense survival guides.

    Survival "expert", eh?

    Can you survive without the fancy gear? If you can't, you're no expert.

    And I think you miss the point about 500rds of .25acp (actually, I checked...it's closer to 1k).

    I'd explain it, but I doubt you'd get it even then.

    1000 rounds of .25 acp still isn't going to do a whole lot LOL. Maybe if it was .45 !!

    I laugh at everyone in this thread.

    It only takes one well placed shot and it's lights out.

    Except maybe with .25acp. That one may well need a double noggin tap to finish it.

    Gecko, is that you? You wouldn't happen to be a mall security professional would you?

    I'm always willing to listen to an expert. Tell us all about your bunker defenses and how you plan on defending yours when the angry mob shows up. I would be fascinated to hear about the videos.

    I feel silly for asking such a simple question... But how many tactical pouches do you recommend? I prefer to keep my "built for speed" profile. Pouches always seemed more suited for those built for comfort if you know what I mean...

    Not a security professional per se, but definitely dabble in that type of stuff.

    I have a couple of bunkers plus a lot of booby traps to help defend them. Don't want to go into too much detail for security reasons.

    Personally, I don't think you can ever have enough pouches. I have probably 8 or 9 on my personal setup right now, definitely looking to add a couple more though LOL.
