gear (post shtf) cause if you do, u probably will never see it again, and there won't BE any Uncle Sugar to issue you some more gear, or any other sort of help, for that matter. All you are likely to have is what you start with, and what you can make (or TAKE) with the gear and the ability that you start shtf with. Period. That's certainly all you can COUNT upon. Murphy is going to screw with THAT enough, much less all the other crap you THINK you are going to have, arrange, etc.
