Yesterday I'm talking to a friend. He's in the aero/defense industry involved in military UAVs (drones). The stuff he was telling me was from Sgt. Prepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band * Said to keep watch for the Russians (I agreed with him that Putin is a very scary/bad dude) * Told me the Russians have hypersonic missiles (yeah, I know) that go underwater (WTF?!) using some sort of water distortion technology/magnetic shielding so the weapon can travel through the water at that speed and "our subs are fucked" * The good news is he said we have electromagnetic rail guns mounted on destroyers that use sachets that can horizontally saw complete ships in half at the water line (I know about the rail guns but not that detail) * I asked him if he heard about the mysterious drones reported to be flying over Colorado and Nebraska. Of course he has. He told me they're "not of this world" as "they're not traditionally power driven" - said they're on high alert and he couldn't say anything more on the subject. * His advice to me was "bury water on my property and a remote outlying area and buy ammunition." He told me he has a portable filtration system for water using ceramic filtration. And he said he wants to get a UV water purifier that he can power with his 4x4 truck. * And finally he said all of the ammo bought by the Feds/Homeland Security was .40 and when the SHTF, .40 cal is what's going to be most available on the black market (I heard the Feds bought up all the black guns and 5.56 ammo but I'm not on top of my Survivalist stuff I'm not a SHTF prepper guy but like most people I've thought about it for more than a few minutes. I've seen the survivalist forums and the gun forums and hey, I'm here too. Some of this stuff does make the hair stand up on the back of my neck. I've seen the movies - The Book of Eli, The Road, Z is for Zachariah. What about you? Are you a get ready for when the SHTF? You a prepper?
