I don't know how well this will work or how far it will go, it all depends on member input. I'm going to start by providing a very general scenario and I'd like members to post what their actions would be. After a day or two, I'll add on to the scenario and we can continue. If I haven't posted in a couple days, another member can keep the scenario going along with a couple guidelines. Everything needs to be relatively broad-based, no specific scenarios. The example I'll use to illustrate would be something along the lines of "A group of armed people approaches your house" rather than "Three guys run toward your front door and two move to the side window, each armed with a magazine-fed rifle". The only rule for those participating I have is that any equipment, weapon, provision, skill, etc.. that you use in the scenario has to be something you currently possess or know. If you don't have access to something, you can't use it. That will prevent people from going overboard like me saying I'd raid the consolidated post arms room where they have dozens of M110 SASS rifles with KAC supressors and Leupold MK 4 mil-dot scopes (Although they do. I saw them. It's a beautiful thing) The basic premise is to discuss trends in preparedness and to give other members ideas for things they may not have thought of or skills they'd like to learn. What you have or what you know is entirely on the honor system, if you say you'd bug in because you live in a 2.8 million dollar converted missile silo with 40 years' worth of Mountain House freeze dried food, an underground river of beer, and two of everything ever designed by John Browning, Eugene Stoner, John Garand, and Gaston Glock, then so be it. By the way, Garand is pronounced like gerrend with the emphasis on the first syllable, not like gurand the way most people do. I'm just saying.
Okay, I'll start off with broad, simple, and fairly common; You're sitting at home when all the lights go out.
