“Writer’s block it happens to every blogger,” the Survivalist Blog blogger blogs, unfamiliar as he is with TTAG’s blistering posting pace. “To help me break through the block, I’d like for you to email me with any ideas for posts that you might have. Don’t hold back send any and all ideas, even if you think your ideas are dumb or far out, trust me they’re not.” Oh I don’t know about that . . .
1. If the SHTF, is it OK to shoot someone and eat them?
On one hand, I don’t know anyone who publicly supports hunting who doesn’t say you should eat what you kill, including Sarah Palin. [NB: I don’t mean you should eat Sarah Palin in any sense of that verb.] On the other, I know that cannibalism is off the menu. Generally speaking. But we’re talking survival here! If you’re starving to death and you have a gun and there’s someone not of your genetic line walking around like a mobile meat locker, well, should you? Would you? Skinning tips? Recipes?
2. What’s the best gun to use against the National Guard?
The left wing has been saying it for years: America’s militia men are preparing for war with their own government. As much as I love my government and dislike civilians who use military slang, it’s true that the Second Amendment was designed as a bulwark against tyranny from Uncle Sam himself. So let’s say society breaks down and the gun grabbers come a grabbin’. Forget about your long term all-rounder, your .22 rifle. You’re going to need something pretty significant to defend your right to bear arms. Suggestions? And how can you get that kind of firepower without the ATF sending in a tank like, now?
3. What’s the best way to shoot yourself?
Surviving the unsurvivable like, say, a nuclear bomb, can be a total bummer. At some point even the hardiest, best-trained and best-prepared survivalist may want to shuffle off this mortal coil. What’s the ideal way to end it all? Gun, caliber, point of aim? Is it ever OK to ask a loved one to shoot you, like when you’re too weak from radiation sickness to do it yourself? Enquiring minds want to know.
