shots fired. The deadliness of the man just overwhelmed his opposition. Missing a lot is not the answer. Which is nice,since you can't CARRY a lot of ammo, and mobility is the key to survival. You aint GOT, and won't HAVE the 20+ adults necessary to "man" even a small fort, much less run patrols, put out booby traps, etc. That's if NO elderly, sick, or underage kids are taking adults from your work pool, and you aint GOT the fort, so you'd have to BUILD it, while being sniped-at. So staying in place is not really an option. The pine forests will BURN if shtf, and so will the towns and cities. Why you THINK they have a fire-dept, hmm? If many get burning, no water to put them out, MOST will burn.
