Damn sure better than Diane Feinstein.

On a different note: That is a sweet friiggin scope on the SK.
I might just go that route tomorrow at the Covington, Ga. gun show tomorrow. Already shatter lenses TWICE on short scopes when casings were ejected. Doesn't look like that can happen with his setup. I'll still install a deflector.

No, I'm not a gun nut. Okay then dammit. Yes, yes I am a gun nut.LOL

To expand on my earlier comment, if you want to go camping and shoot guns, fine. To think you are going to defend anyone from anything is delusional.

Pretty much this. I guess part of their survival plan involves storing up calories for hibernation?

And every time a camera crew heads to the ghetto, you see fat people of a different color "hawg" the cameras. Fat people have many other traits they share no matter what part of society they come from.

I'll never understand how these survival groups plan to survive anything considering they seem very physically unfit. It seems like physical fitness should be priority #1, and playing dress-up in the woods would be somewhere a bit further down the list.

I'm pretty much a gun nut, but these people are weird. I think teaching kids and young adults to shoot and proper firearms safety is important if guns are going to be present in the household. But putting little kids in t-shirts that say they're willing to fight and die for their 2nd amendment rights is pretty sick.

as well he should be. a crappy tapco SKS and a 38 for a sidearm? obviously his father knows nothing about guns! personally i carry a Beretta 92A1, a glock 19, and a glock 26 in my bugout kit- one in the pocket, two on the vest. 2 extra mags for each. my MBR is a Colt LE6920 with 400rds of tracer-LAP-Ball-Ball-Ball rotation in pmags. thats how a real american defends his woods! and by george, if i have to snipe me a critter, my mosin is up to the task. while heavy and unportable, for an encampment it makes a fine deer gun. not to mention that my YHM 7.62 Phantom works well on all the above rifles!

thugs with guns
every post-apocalyptic novel pits the rational collaborators against thugs with guns.
why share or plan in advance when all you need is bunch of jimbos with guns.

For these people, The Ant and the Grasshopper ends with the Grasshopper mowing down the Ant and eating all the Ant's stored food.

I have relatives who have taken their kids hunting from the time they were tiny--my one cousin's oldest kid was about 6 when he got his first deer (kid's going to be the only multi-lingual Hispanic American Florida redneck on the planet). I don't have any problem with teaching kids about guns, but these people are farking nuts. It's like little kids playacting in the woods but with real weapons believing that they're fighting a real threat. Their connection with reality is tenuous and they've dragged their kids into it with them.
 
2013-02-23 05:13:59 AM  
I don't see all that much wrong with this. However, these guys remind me of the guy who is a karate master, but when he finds himself in a real situation, has a hard time with the execution of his skillset.

It's ok if you wanna be fat, but can you see these guys running through the woods with all that gear and weaponry when you are facing real people with real guns and you actually have to move your ass with a quickness lest you be dead? That goes for the guys who aren't fat either..

It's all fun and games, till they start shootin back.

They also need to work on their spacing and movement.  One grenade would take out their entire "squad".

Survival in Florida does not require being able to do a situp, or a pushup, or a chinup, or being able to see your toes.

They don't look especially skilled at handling weapons. It also doesn't look like they're being particularly safe with them.

The purpose of keeping weapons around isn't just for rebellion against the government, its also to protect yourself from other citizens (which, among unlikely scenarios, is the likeliest).

To that end you don't need the same level of training as some guy going off to kick in doors in Kandahar.
The folks you'll be up against, at worse, will be similarly unskilled militia or former military looking for easier targets than an armed camping party.

And for many liberals, it ends with the government taxing the ant because it's just not fair to the grasshopper.

Not just that, but you can almost read that entire families future therapy bills in that one picture.  Look at how earnestly the little girl wants to be exactly the child daddy wanted, and how pudgy, neurotic and frazzled the little boy is over knowing that it's him instead but every time he miss-steps or makes even a minor mistake daddy will explode.  You can't even see his head but you can tell Daddy is focusing his attention almost completely to the side the boy is on.

Don't worry, the federal government is coming up with ways to deal with it:

"Detailed information on each category of ideological motivation can be found in the Profiles of Perpetrators of Terrorism-United States report compiled by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (Miller, Smarick, and Simone, 2011). Briefly, the report describes each category as follows:

Extreme Right-Wing: groups that believe that one's personal and/or national "way of life" is under attack and is either already lost or that the threat is imminent (for some the threat is from a specific ethnic, racial, or religious group), and believe in the need to be prepared for an attack either by participating in paramilitary preparations and training or survivalism.

Groups may also be fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation), anti-global, suspicious of centralized federal authority,  reverent of individual liberty, and believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty."

My buddy and I watched that movie about a dozen times before basic.  I remember sitting on my duffel bag at reception center getting ready to head out on the bus.  One of the guys was smiling and one of our future drill sergeants came over and said, "Are you having a good time private?  Don't worry we'll fix that".  My first thought was farkkkkkkk here we go.

Meh. I have no problem with their silly little LARPer group or even that kids are being trained to handle guns. I do feel kind of sorry for the kids that their parents are paranoid dumbasses, but they could be in a much worse situation.

Florida, y'all. Enough said.
