    WARNING: The Other Preppers: “We Are Your Worst Nightmare and We Are Coming…”

    Editor’s Note: At last count there were roughly three million people in America who are preparing for far-from-equilibrium events and disasters. But not all preppers have the same ideas about their strategic plans, stockpiles and strategies. While most are taking steps to insulate themselves from catastrophe by stocking their pantries, developing skills and learning to protect their homes from marauders should the worst befall us, others are putting together plans and organized syndicates whose plan is to strike at those who had the forethought to get ready in advance.

    Tyler Smith, a recent guest on the show Doomsday Preppers, is one such ‘prepper’ who is taking a controversial approach to end-of-the-world preparedness.

    “We are your worst nightmare, and we are coming,” is the warning Smith has given to those who think they’ll be living the simple life in a post-collapse world.

    You may have prepared for starving looters, and can likely fend off small parties of people trying to take what you have, but are you prepared for a coordinated attack from a heavily armed band of pillagers?

    You better be, because you can be assured they are preparing for you.

    Daisy Luther of The Organic Prepper reports…

    Tyler Smith of Doomsday Preppers: Apex Predator or Apex Punk?
    By Daisy Luther

    If there was ever a case study on why preppers should be prepared to defend their supplies, the upcoming episode of National Geographic’s Doomsday Preppers would provide a perfect example.

    “We’re not in it to stockpile. We’re in it to take what you have and there’s nothing you can do to stop us,” Tyler Smith says. “We are your worst nightmare, and we are coming.”

    Smith, 29, is the leader of Spartan Survival. The group has more than 80 dues-paying members. Smith founded the organization in 2005 to train and prepare others on survivalism.

    On Tuesday night, Smith’s story will be told on the National Geographic Channel survivalist TV show “Doomsday Preppers.” (source)

    So, not only would someone with supplies need to worry about everyday commonplace looters, they would need to be concerned about Smith and his band of merry marauders, whose survival plan seems to hinge on overwhelming force against those who have spent years gathering supplies and planning for a secure and peaceful existence.

    National Geographic appears to have chosen Smith as a poster boy to give the preparedness-minded a bad name.  I wouldn’t set your DVR for this one – excerpts seem to indicate a show full of bad advice and ill-thought-out “strategies” from someone who refers to himself as “a professional deer hunter”.

    tyler

    He refers to himself as the “apex predator” in his area, based on his home-made body armor and other survival gear.

    Most preppers, Smith says, are concerned with marauders taking their supplies. It’s not an unfounded fear, he says.

    “We are those people,” he says. “We’ll kick your door in and take your supplies. … We are the marauders.”  (source)

    Smith has gotten a lot of bad comments from the prepping community and has responded with this literate response on his facebook page [Author's noteSmith's Facebook page was removed today]:

    idk what is worse the people that cant tell the difference between entertainment/tv hype? or the people that are commenting way beyond things I said talking about killing my family and raping my wife and or killing me preemptively I said I would do whatever is necessary to survive and if that means kicking in doors then yes that is the guy I will be. get a fucking life you troll keyboard warrior pieces of shit its reality tv if you thought entertainment wasn’t a possibility swallow your own 12 gauge barrel. Armor was meant to be for tv use only notice my modern plate carrier in pics above. and just so yall know your feeding into another show I have airing and your filling my pockets so for my house payments sake and new truck payment keep talking! if you thought anyone in there right mind would say that for free and not be expecting a reward you all are fools…as for my personal skills I know I can get better i know physical training is a top issue that’s all time consuming objectives and I am definitely working on it. better yet live your live prep and get ready because the end is coming. if you think your morals will survive the end times good luck and watch the whole episode and turn off selective hearing.

    Let’s make one thing clear – Smith is not a prepper.  He is not representative of what we do.  He’s an embarrassment to the preparedness community.  He is a thug, plain and simple.  He’s an out-of-shape criminal who is afraid to get caught, so he’s waiting for the breakdown of law and order to commit the crimes he so clearly wishes to perpetrate, without fear of spending time in prison.

    Preppers, beware.  Just because someone calls themselves a prepper, doesn’t mean that they have the same morals and values as the rest of us.  Unsavory people like Smith and his Spartan Survival group are out there, and they’re planning to come for our supplies.

    This is what we prepare for.  And we’re ready for you, Mr. Smith.

            That prepper show is sensational crap and it put a few on the radar. One guy lost his firearms for running his yap too much. When this fat fuck drops on his first assault he deserves the hard drop to the ground.

              Daisy, he is a prepper, just the wrong kind. He is preparing to be on the offense where as most of us prepare to be on the defense.
              His biggest downfall is his ego. And yes, he’ll be gunned down like a rabid dog. He is 29 years old? I’ll take my chances on him wearing his body armor. If he knocks down the door of a prepared vet, it’ll be his last door till he passes through the gates of hell.
              Personally, I think he is nothing more than mouth. Seen and heard his type many of times and they’re all the same. They prey only on the weak.

                  Apparently he is not fond of spending much time alive in the post collapse world either. While he may think he will become god, it is much more likely he will meet Him, right before getting on the down elevator to meet his new master.

If I ever get the money I’m getting a Beowulf 50 cal, I’d just laugh at bad guys and thier armor! If people plan on this type of living, they better know one truth! If you live by the sword, you die by the sword.

                  A simple invitation should prove his and there inability to go forth and multiply. A simple attack on them would prove thier lack of actual engagement skills. Any body that talks the talk never gives up stratagy or even the possibility of engagement. Sounds like big foot, all yell no bark.

My 14 year old son…no make that my 9 year old daughter could drop this yolk sack before he was done with his first stack of waffles in the morning. Maybe it is time for a daddy daughter date to Tardsville, WA. My 5 year old can practice a C-section on him.

                  I liked the nice old couple in the movie “Book of Eli”. In that SHTF world, tough guys would try to mess with the nice old couple who turned out to has some very sofisticated traps and turned out to be cannibals. Oops!

                  This kid likes to think he’s an apex predator, yeah he might take a few people down, odds are he will try to mess with someone who out planned him? Oops!

                  In any disaster I stand with my neighbors. There is power in a community.

                Why is his body armor so important? It may stop the first shot, but you would likely be stunned if you were shot or worse. Plus it would be heavy. Figuring if things got bad, thats 50+ pounds of weight of you. It may make sense for soldiers in a warzone (where they are targets), but for any time with intense physical exertion, such as backpacking or relocating I would almost think it would slow you down and reduce what you can carry (not to mention making you a target; if I saw a person in body armor during a disaster, I would be very wary and probably be much more alarmed than if I saw an ordinary-looking person who could be passing through.)

                Also, his armor is homemade. Not to trash the do-it-yourself attitude, but how does he know its effective? Its probably not nearly as strong as he thinks it is, especially since it looks more like a vest with stuffed pockets. I bet a well-placed .22 could get through the fabric pretty easily, to say nothing of the bigger calibers. Even if it did stop the bullet, you could easily have internal bleeding or broken ribs, both of which could be deadly if there are no hospitals. And its not even *body* armor, its chest (maybe side and back) armor. That leaves his legs, arms, head, neck, groin unprotected. A shot in any of those will take you out of the fight, possibly permanently.

                And his group, 80+ people planning on basically piracy as a solution in a rural area? My god, that sounds like a way to actually make it more dangerous, not less. I would be worried about somebody slitting my throat for a greater share of the booty. Not to mention if someone did survive your assault, you are now a target for revenge killing (and rightfully so). SHTF is not a time to try and provoke a fight if it can be helped. I could see a little girl with a pistol stalking and attacking him if he attacked her family, not even bringing in any parents or older siblings who may also have survived.

                Likewise, targeting people makes no sense from a cost benefit angle. Easy targets (like refugees or evacuees) won’t have much, if anything. Rich targets (other preppers, rural farmer, etc.) would be more heavily armed. Even a completely successful raid would make you known as a threat to other people, and they may decide it would be prudent to end his little gang. Even after its all over (5-10 years) and things are stable, nobody will trust him or his family.

                Searching for a tripwire to a bomb for practice, like the link says? Are they planning on robbing the Vietcong? They’d be better prepared attanding a Red Cross class for broken bones. This guy has seen Rambo too many times. If I were going to do a trap, it would probably be a punji pit or jaw trap. Hell, I get a good vantage point with a 223. Drop the whole war party in a minute.

                Doing nothing would be better than what he’s got planned. The goal is to survive, not get a high score. Thing this “professional deer hunter” needs to remember is that most people aren’t like deer, they shoot back.

                  Most armor does not cover the femoral artery. Well placed shots to the ankle are also hard to come back from.

                  A 22 is far more deadly than people give them credit as being.

                  I got hit in my trauma plate with a piece of fist sized shrapnel in Iraq. It didn’t penetrate but it knocked me down and I was out of awhile. Even if body armor stops the round it’s like getting hit in the chest with a sledgehammer. I was bruised and banged up pretty bad.

                  Someone was mentioning the venerable 22 cal. There are guys around that have modified some of the semiautos to fire at 1600 rounds per minute. They are on u-tube. Anyway, 100 rounds of spray over the body will find a sweet spot. As you guys are mentioning, these fuckers will have at least a little bad luck if they ever decide to go on a looting spree. 45-70, 300WinMag, bottle of gasoline, on and on. It will be a bad idea for them in this country. They better choose wisely in their little collection expeditions.

                  If a substantial portion/planning of your “preps” doesn’t include an OFFENSIVE STRATEGY complete with diversions and flanking/crossfire protocols…TIME TO RETHINK YOUR PREPAREDNESS.

                  These “losers” will DIE without much effort…there are others looking for easy pickings that believe EVERYONE is an easy target of opportunity. Put their heads on stakes around your perimeter after the fact!

                  Strictly DEFENSIVE preps are not sufficient.

                  Hilly terrain sucked during ftx’s, doing it with body armor, in a bounding overwatch role to maintain security against pot shotting sniper fire? If you don’t have the coordination, equipment and training of a professional militia/military, you’d only be dragging bodies around rather than ‘loot’. Even if we momentarily fell back to let them loot caches, thats only more burden for them to worry about

                Stay close to the the Lord Jesus.

                Jeremiah 20:11

                But the Lord is with me like a mighty warrior;
                so my persecutors will stumble and not prevail.
                They will fail and be thoroughly disgraced;
                their dishonor will never be forgotten.

                note:

                But also remember Jesus commanded us to pray for our enemies so that he may open their eyes to the Truth, so that they may also be saved.

              One other issue about bartering, aside from being very careful, is that when you can use EXCESS of what you have and not dip into or sacrifice your own needs this is barter for advantage. This is why when you have EXCESS of something that someone else has and that they need that you have extra of, you benefit so much. When you have the room available it is always a good idea to have excess of what is going to be in demand, which is a lot.

              When someone has a part, some medication, etc, that you must have, it sure is nice to be able to trade from that with your EXCESS without sacrificing your own needs at the time. Yes storing a lot of toilet paper is an excellent idea when space permits. Someone is going to use, maybe even you years down the road after eating nature’s bounty after your supplies run out. Being very carfeful with whom you trade with is exactly what the above article is about, not letting someone know what you have so they or someone else can “try” to take it. With any barter situation you ALWAYS want to make it appear that you are sacrificing MUCH to trade and that you have little or nothing thereafter. Might get a better trade also if another thinks you have little or nothing. Just like someone storing up as many precious pieces of metal, storing up people’s basic needs makes a lot of common sense if room permits.

                  @ Nina’os lil brother. Eventually supplies run out, and someone may have something that is necessary to keep their daughter or son or other member of the family alive that you can trade for. Never discount the future in which barter and trade may be the ONLY way to survive in certain circumstances. Survivalism is about adaptness to different scenarioes. Trade might will be the ONLY way people live years or decades after mega SHTF.

                  I’ll again say that barter will not be feasible in SHTF. Most all valuable supplies will to consumed or used very qucikly.

                  YOU CAN’T PREPARE FOR EVERYTHING!!!

                  You don’t need 5 different antibiotics, 4 wells, armoured truck made to go through fire, 3 different BOL, 2 bunkers, 20 guns with 10k rounds for each, 7 swords, 32 ninja stars, 2 flamethowers, 4 BOB’s in each vehicle, 3 wood burning stoves, 100 gallon tanks or gas, diesel, karosine, motor oil, 45 solar panels, 5 sniper towers, 63 knives, 22 gold bars, 150 silver bars, 50 gallon drums of gun powder……

                  Need I go on???

Yes there are some bad people here also, but I’m sure the good will band together and deal with the bad. This will not happen if you live in a big city. Yes there are good people in the big cities but most don’t tend to know each other and will not be able to resist people like the punks in this article. Trekker Out. Semper Paratus

I look at this as a wakeup call for those real preppers, who only stock up on food thinking they will gather in the town square to barter on Saturdays. Part of your Vital Preps are your home security plan as well as getting your concealed weapon permit now and stock up heavy on guns and ammo to defeat these knumbskulls on the onset of SHTF slithering through neighborhoods, night and day looking to exploit the weak. 5.56 Green tip penetrators will stop a car if you aim at the engine compartment, then as they pile out of their vehicle, you put the frosting on their fat cake faces. Remember to stock up heavy on lots of lye to sprinke on the corpses, so diseases doesn’t spread.

          We have some folks in our area who are just like this. In a full SHTF scenario our team will hit the people of this ilk on the first day. We will take care of punks like this before they can even move. Most are just like this guy… all talk and bully. The folks on our team are quiet, well trained, calm and very deadly when it counts. Find the Thugs, Bullies, and big talkers in your area. Learn where they live and who they hang with and if it goes south…. Dispatch them on day one quickly and quietly. The word will get out and the rest of the punks will chill…. Don’t let them come to your door… go to theirs. It is imperative you form teams and have a plan. PRAY, PREP, PLAN, FORM TEAMS.

          What this guy fails to realize is that while he is prepping for the preppers, the preppers are prepping for him. If he and his little band of thugs think they are going to live off the prepared, he had best kill himself now. It will be far more merciful than what he’s got coming to him. When the protection of law goes, it will go both ways. Nothing will stop people (like me) from putting a 308 round in his gut, skinning him alive and stringing his screeching ass up as an example to others.

            National Geographic appears to have outdone themselves with this show. They either show a prepper who is wealthy beyond our imagination; or one who seems looney, or they dig up the dregs of society like Smith. We need to send e-mails to the advertisers telling them we will not support them if they continue their support of this program.

            Also a call or e-mail to Nat Geo couldn’t hurt.

            I know that we don’t think that will change anything but I will share this with you:

            Geico insurance had a commercial of a woman who ran into a geico that she hadn’t seen in a long time. The commercial suggested she had had an affair with him. I looked up a phone # I found for consumer complaints for Geico and told them their commercial was beyond the pale and I was going to ask everyone I knew who their insurance company was and if it was Geico I was going to point out their “demeaning” commercial. Believe it or not, the guy on the other end of the telephone agreed with me.

            Now I don’t know what little influence I had in the matter; but that commercial quit running shortly after that. I think a lot more people called and let them know how damned distasteful that commercial was.

            NO SPONSOR MONEY MEANS NO MORE MONEY FOR SMITH!

            Boycotting works for communists, lets let it work for us. Let Nat Geo know you will no longer watch their ignorant program; their purpose is to make preppers look like idiots to the rest of America.

              NatGeo = Fox = Fox News = Rupert Murdoch.

              On one channel exists distinct political analysis that tells us that things aren’t going so well and that we should thus explore preparedness.

              On the other channel, we who are practicing preparedness are portrayed as lunatics.

              And of course none of it matters because millions upon millions every Sunday will watch the NFC on the Fox sports network.

                  You may not realize that News Corporation owns Fox Entertainment….which owns Fox News Channel, Fox Sports Channel, NAT GEO, NAT GEO Wild, etc…..along with a myriad of other networks.

                  The point being is….KNOW FROM WHOM YOUR GETTING YOUR INFORMATION.

                  Doomsday Preppers, a show on NATGEO (owned by Fox) presents preparedness in a negative light. Fox News Channel speaks to government mismanagement and points to debit, american decline, etc….which is a motivator for preparedness.

                  It’s called a Mixed Message. It’s called “Don’t like one channel and want to boycott sponsors, no biggie, you’ll watch the other channel and support it’s sponsors” It doesn’t matter, News Corp gets the money either way.

                  Prepper Tip: If you want to implement an alternative, switchable water source for your residence, you’ll need to solder in a few backflow preventers to comply with local building codes.

                  p.s. I know this because as a condition of me living in my mom’s basement (god rest her soul), I have to pay the water bill……sheeple moron.

                  Because ‘faux noise’ doesn’t pass the ‘smell test’.

                  way back in the day I remember watching Fox News thinking that they were being ‘fair and balanced’ and that the ‘MSM” suffered from a ‘liberal bias’, and Fox News was the ‘plucky kid’ who would ‘tell it as it was’.

                  Oh how wrong I was! I remember listening to ‘O’Reilly’ state something as ‘fact’ and thinking that ‘that doesn’t sound right…’. After I checked the third thing that he stated as ‘fact’, which turned out to be complete buck, I stopped listening to him. Given that Bill O’Reilly was their most respectable host let me rule out the rest without additional investigation.

                  This is a sad commentary on the state of the American press, but if I want the real story, the best sources are the BBC, Aljazeera, John Steward, and Bill ‘fucking’ Maher. What the hell is wrong with this picture?

                  Where the hell is our ‘Edward R. Murrow’? Why, oh, why is the best that we can do is a freaking COMEDIAN?

                  Yeah, the Government agencies are really good preppers, but their preps keep disappearing. Check this:
                  In 2003, Inspector General to the Department of Defense revealed that $1 trillion had essentially disappeared along with 56 airplanes, 32 tanks, and 36 Javelin missiles. Oops!

                  The United States’ ventures in Afghanistan and Iraq have contributed significantly to the trillions of missing and unaccounted for taxpayer dollars. Twenty billion dollars were shipped to help support the reconstruction of Iraq, most of it was never seen again. Waste and fraud on the part of war contractors has cost up to $60 billion in the span of 2002 to 2011.

                  Article 1, Section 9 of the United States Constitution reads:

                  “No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.”

        There are going to be predators, whether they plan it out or not, it will likely happen. Dealing with this is why each person MUST be armed with something. What Daisy says is key here, be careful whom you trust. If others don’t know what you have, the invitation is not there. Same goes true with criminals, don’t advertise what you have. The poorer someone seems the more likely you will be left alone. Silence really is the best defense BEFOREHAND. Next is to make your place and you as unappealing as possible. A little bit of acting and drama goes a long way. Someone asking for food, you might say let me know when you find a source because my family is also starving.

        Also something about prepping that has really been bugging is the most retarded comment ever made on this site recently about why should you have 10 years worth of toilet paper and 1 year of food, it doesn’t make sense. This is stupid beyond words. There is plenty of food outside someone’s supplies in anture. Toilet paper is something you need to help keep down bacteria infection. The more toilet paper someone has the better. Toilet paper can also substitute for other needs, including possible feminine needs. If you need to barter for items in the future, toilet paper and other needs might be much more valuable than a bar of gold.

        This is another issue about precious metals. In many future circumstances precious metals will be king, in other scenarioes it will be as worthless as any other rock. Precious metals absolutely have their place, and sometimes they don’t and won’t. When someone is very hungry, thirsty, or in need of other necessities, they are far less likely to trade for anything other than what they can use at the time. Precious metals are money, and money is used for purchase of goods. Money is also worthless if no one is willing to use money for future purchase of other goods. Precious metals are a good addition to any survival plan, but not to forget about barter.

        In a future hell, barter may be the ONLY way to get what you need. In many science fiction movies there are these scenarioes that ONLY trade is the way people deal. Business can become just trade. As also referred to within this brainless comment was that barter is crap. There is something that everyone has that someone else needs, this is what trade is about. The more you can store up, the more you have “money” in the bank. Not all is dealings within the barrel of a gun when it comes to trade in a post mega SHTF world. You must be extremely careful with barter, but in many cases it will work because everyone needs something you have, and you will likely need something that someone else needs. Again, whenever you accept money of any sort you take a risk that someone else will accept it as payment for something you need. This is why straight up barter system MUST be considered for the future.

        The danger of dealing with people with precious metals, cash money, or just what is needed MUST be a consideration at all times because you are letting the world know that you have something, and perhaps much more. Predators like this see someone with a bag of silver or gold coins, or rumor that someone has this, will be coming for it IF money is still being used. One of the best defenses is to be as discrete as possible to what you have. Trust is not a give me, it is earned, and not that easily ever should it be.

                  My guess is this:

                  1. He’s looking for the excuse (permission) to be Rambo.
                  2. He Think’s he’s an ‘Alpha Predator’
                  3. He dreams every night taking everything this life ‘owes’ him by force, but can’t do the time.
                  4. If SHTF he thinks that he can live out his fantasy without repercussions.

                  What’s most likely to happen:

                  1. No, large scale SHTF
                  2. He lives a life of slow, grinding, poverty dreaming of the day he’ll be an “alpha predator”

                  Less likely to happen:

                  Least Likely to Happen (ie Shit Actually Hits the Fan)
                  1. Catches a round in the front yard
                  2. Buried in the back yard,,,

                …..”professional deer hunter” my ass……

                I take deer for the table year round, I don’t
                wait for the DNR to tell me when they are good
                to eat. Stealth is a way of life in the woods
                of the North Country.

                When these Rambo wannabe “professional deer
                hunters” come up from downstate, they can be
                heard a mile away. A deer would have to be
                deaf, dumb, and blind not to know where they
                are at any moment.

                If they should attack even one home here the
                rest of the area would know it immediately,
                and we won’t be cowering in our homes waiting,
                the hunters would become the hunted on our turf.

                The perps hunkered down in the foliage works
                both ways, and that’s where we are in our element.

            I’m sure these idiots would like to be considered as apex predators, but they won’t last long.

            A pack of real apex predators, hungry wolves, only gets to cull one animal from a herd at a time. The herd acts in defense, and the losses are minimal.

            The lone wildebeest gets eaten, the group goes on.

            Defend your area, not your homes. If these guys had to walk in two miles, driven into killing areas by harassing fire, and chopped up in detail several hundred yards from the delicious preps they were after, I guarantee you no one will have to worry about them.

          Honestly, unless there is a set structure in place to actually barter, you are really taking a chance to expose youself as a prepper with lots of stocks and supplies. They follow you back to your preps, then attack when you are vunerable or asleep.

          If You barter or give a simple roll of toilet paper to your neighbor, they will tell 10 of their friends how nice you were, then their friends show up looking for toilet paper and water too, then food, then ammo, then your car, your house and your entire stockpile. When SHTF, you stay put and out of site, till a full 90 days passes, and half the population is dead from killing eachother. When SHTF hits, you hunker down and avoid all people whoare Not in your inner circle. You could put a premade sign on your front door, “Sorry not answering door due to Bird Flu Quarentine.” “Everyone in here has it.” Thanks for understanding. Mgt. lol I think this will even keep the DHS off your property trying to steal your weapons. However, there may be a dreawbacks to this, as neighbors may firebomb your house to get rid of you and the bird flu. Think out of the box on this and act accordingly.

You and your slobbering band of blobs can bring it on down anytime you like. Damned goon squad of degenerate douche bags must be prepping for the grave.”

          Joe ,
          I do not think they would even make it to the door they would probably expire of a heart attack carring their gear in the physical condition they are in! LOL

          I my opinion the ones with the biggest mouths were the first to piss themselves at the first sign of rounds coming down range at them and generally run in the opposite direction.

          There are countermeasures for this type ( marauders and wanna be warriors of the wasteland):

          1) OPSEC TELL NO ONE ABOUT YOUR PREPS / CAPABILITIES OUTSIDE OF YOUR TEAM
          2) Practice your TTP’s (Tactics, Techniques, Preocedures)
          3) Train with others form a team with Light infantry tactics.
          4) GET TACTICAL TRAINING FROM A QUALIFIED INSTRUCTOR OR FRIEND THAT HAS RECENTLY ROTATED BACK FROM THE SAND BOX -IMPORTANT-
          5) Know your AO, practice in your AO. Learn it’s strengths and weaknesses.
          6) IN SHTF DO NOT PROJECT YOUR MORALS ON CRIMINALS THEY HAVE NONE , ENGAGE WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE IT IS YOUR LIFE AT STAKE.
          7) know your limitations , improve your capabilities.

          Establish a LP/OP ( Listening post / Obsevation post with communication capabilities )

          Patrol outside your community in a non-predictable manner AFTER THE BREAKDOWN looking for obvious signs of intrusion or Surveillance. This way if attacked you have an element that can organize a Hasty ambush from their 6. Always have one patrol working outside the wire in this function.

          At your LP/ OP and other concealed areas provide for two man rifle teams , range card the areas and provide fire lanes that each group is responsible for on over watch. NOD’s are Force multipliers in the dark. Most assaults happen at 3:00 am when alertness is at its lowest.

          Shows like this are being corrupted with bad information investigate and research every thing shown on doomsday preppers trust nothing shown on TV . IT CAN AND WILL GET YOU VERY DEAD VERY FAST.

          Do not be a Couch potato warrior like these guys , get out there practice, train , form teams .

        True, but it’s all a line of BS. Roving bands of free booters went out with the 100 years war. 80 guys need 560 man days of food a week. If they have any “family” it’s worse. You hit one person in 19 that’s waiting for you and it’s all over soon. You cannot stand the casulties. It’s also stupid. For the cost of gearing up a real combat group you could easily get a year or two’s supply of food. That’s all you get anyway, an area you can control won’t have much more than that and after a year of stealing, if you live, the rest of the food is gong to be like reaching into a badgers den to get him out. You won’t have a hand left.
        This group in peticular isn’t a threat. If they are stupid enoughto go on TV, you are going to be attacked by F troup. Their stuff will be a good addition to our supplies.

            When you say that you don’t care who is coming, and that they “will be challenged”, you sound like an idiot.
            I don’t want to surrender either, but there is one thing I’ve learned in life, and that is to pick your battles. So if the government shows up with a shit load of guns compared to your one or two, then you might want to consider surrender so that you can fight another day.
            Please don’t take jabs at others here, even if you don’t like what they say. This site is supposed to be here for all of us that have a common goal. It’s about survival, and looking out for one another, and watching out for ass holes like the thugs that want to take our stuff.
            Check your attitude at the door please.

              Mike, I’m not even referring to teachers at all. I’ve seen other people ‘surrender’ in certain situations only to get themselves hurt worse than they might have otherwise. There’s no guarantee of safety in surrender. There is no possible benefit to submitting to anyone who has bad intentions toward you. When someone says to me they’re going to do something bad to me, I take it seriously and respond accordingly. IF they can prove to me that it’s only a joke, etc., then and only then would my reaction change. Mike, I have never trusted anyone who expects other people to ‘kiss their ass’. My personal experience has been that such people NEVER have good intentions toward other people. BTW, I did try it once as a teenager and I paid a terrible price for doing so. When you do so, all you’re doing is opening the door for someone to commit God only knows what kind of injustice. There is a price to pay for ‘kissing ass’. Mike, you sound like you mean well so we’ll just have to agree to disagree on this subject. PS, on ‘kissing ass’, when you’re looking at the merchandise, check the price tag and your budget. Make damned sure you can afford it. Also, what you call my ‘attitude’ is the reason I’m still alive. Good luck. You’re going to need all the luck you can get. braveheart

        Exactly BJ–and so many here are quick to dismiss this VERY REAL THREAT–just because in this instance it comes from some joke of a wanna-be marauder who probably plays too much X-box black ops games.

        The very real danger ( and point that should be taken from this story)is that there are closely and loosely organized groups out there of significant sizes who will band together in a SHTF scenario.
        I read recently that there are 100,000 gang members in Chicago and only 200 police officers on gang task forces. Those 100K thugs right now primarily prey upon eachother in their urban ghettos and so the small numbers of copsthug ratio is workable for keeping the productive populace mostly safe.

        However in a SHTF scenario–those hundreds of groups, each with 50 to 100 heavily armed members will not be squabbling over city block turf and who gets to sell which contraband–no, their eyes will be turned outward toward us when they are hungry and desperate.

        They will come in packs, gangs and groups–they will come from all directions, they are stupid enough to burn you down because if they are hungry-then you are gonna be hungry and desperate too.

        They will be exactly as they are now–just more feral. Already they do not produce, they do not plan for the future and their existence is consumption and mayhem—they will seek consumables and move on.

        Now I don’t expect the silly fatboy in this article to last long–heck, he probably couldn’t even last a 100 yard sprint. But there are some serious groups of cold-hearted and vile sub human miscreants out there. They also would relish a chance to “burn this MFer to the ground.”

        These idiots will have a target rich environment, they are in Buckley, that’s only 4,000 people, but within 10 miles are at least 50,000 people, and 15 miles, 250,000 people.

        My bet, is however, they won’t live long enough to pick on anyone more than a mile or two away. I used to live on the plateau there, it’s filled with small farms, small towns, and subdivisions in between. They won’t last long, most folks there are good neighbors and will take care of the problem in short order. Farmers, loggers, and Ft. Lewis soldiers won’t sit still for that very long.

        Two things are going to slow these guys down fast. The first and biggest is water borne diseases. In a large scale collapse water and waste system will cease to work and any water above ground will be contaminated within weeks, if not days. So unless they have immunizations to such things as cholera and typhoid, they’re walking dead men within a few weeks at most. They’ll also have to have some form of medium scale water purification system too. Hell, without proper training in field sanitation, (food, water, and waste handling), they could also fall victim to a serious case of dysentery. Under modern conditions it’s a mild to moderate inconvenience. Under primitive conditions it could be fatal. These guys aren’t going to wander far like the Mongols or other primitive tribes. Clean water was almost everywhere then, but today most sources are suspect at best. And it they don’t die from a case of the screaming shits, lots of folks will have some very nasty (sharp and painful) booby-traps like those found in Viet Nam waiting to be uncovered. If the booby-taps don’t kill them immediately, the subsequent infections sure will. If clowns like these had any real brains they might try to offer their services as security personnel.

          Bingo. That right there is the game changer. When your survival or that of your family is at stake, civility becomes irrelevant very quickly as it should.

          As a highly decorated Vietnam Veteran advised me once, "Once a threat has demonstrated the Ability, Intent, and the Opportunity to inflict moderate or greater bodily injury, use of force is authorized. Do not hesitate for a moment to use force. Every second wasted is a life or death moment."

          It's not the type of decision a novice person can reliably make in the heat of battle, which is why it must be honed to a reflex evolved out of repetitious training. The lethal force decision making process must be made long before the event ever takes place.

          That may sound cold and ruthless to some, but it may mean the difference between winning and losing the fight.

            ..per the Eastern-front campaign, the Soviet-communist field leadership/commanders in WW-II utilized said strategy on a regular basis against the Wehrmacht(German Army).

            They were political prisoners & inmates, drawn from the GULAG system, which was a near-death sentence anyway (back then).

            They were kept isolated & unarmed until the attack was about to commence…then they were armed w/ bolt guns only & usually(just) 20rds apiece.
            Then told, ASSAULT the OBJECTIVE…or die!

            ..the 2nd echelon (vetted commie soldiers behind them), were instructed to “waste any penal battalion soldier” who hesitated or retreated.

            -(sorta gives “motivational impetus’.. a whole new meaning, don’t you think)-

            To say that the German Army on the Eastern Front, choked and died on the BLOOD of the Soviet penal battalions…is almost an understatement.

            Hence the historical Russian number of +20million KIA in WW-II, is likely close to the truth!

            Now, you know why.

            ——————————————————–

            That said:

            ..if a real American of Southern birth-rite, can unearth such info/data/truth..

            ..how difficult would it be for a few of Daisy’s protagonists, to do likewise and duplicate such strategy, when the SHTF.

            ——————————————————–

            Just something to keep in mind.

              That is why in any combat situation one MUST maintain discipline and awareness. On the defence, unless completely surrounded, there will be elements of an all-around defence that will not be engaged in the fighting. These are the ones whose attention MUST stay in their assigned arcs instead of the noisy confrontation at the opposite end of their location.

              If discipline is lax, they will leave their posts to make their way where they think they will be more useful or just try to see what’s going on.

              You make an excellent point and as you’ve demonstrated, you aren’t the first one to consider it and you definitely won’t be the last either.

              Hunter, excellent observations. I had always heard that Stalin emptied out his gulags to have manpower to fight the Germans. I believe that 20,000,000 figure is close to correct also. That would be one of the few times the Soviets were honest about anything. I’m sure there are plenty of vets among the prepper movement who would be capable of doing so. Some of the vets in my family can certainly do it also. braveheart

      Sounds like the script from the movie, “The Postman”.

      Those behind a wall will fare better than those attacking said wall. Those needing to expend effort to move out in the elements to seek new prey are at the disadvantage. Few with such a mindset have the discipline necessary to hold such a band of de-facto criminals together for too long. They will feed upon themselves at the fist sign of low rations.

      • Canadian Vet says:

        Canadian infantry doctrine calls for a 3 to 1 advantage in numbers when on the offensive. That ratio goes up when enemy defences start going past a single line of basic fighting positions, like prepared obstacles, further overwatch, fortified positions, fire support, etc.

        Eventually, they’ll run out of combat-capable warm bodies.

        Or, just like the Vikings encountered in England in the 9th century, they will come across their own King Alfred who will unite various factions, raise fortifications and a standing force along with the doctrine to fight off these raiders.

            Mate, I won’t lie, I’m not a combat arms type. I wear a Signals cap badge and I’m actually Navy. However my trade is what’s called “purple” and what element I serve in just pretty much determines what colour beret I wear.

            However, by virtue of being in a purple trade, I have been to Afghanistan and my Primary Leadership Qualification course was the Army one as it is much more strenuous than the Navy or Air Force ones. These guys plan mess dinners, I was planning section (squad) level field operations.

            That and I’ve spent more time in a field unit than anywhere else.

            As for history, it’s always been an interest and I work in a field where it pays to have a wide background of knowledge along those lines. That and I’ve been trained as an analyst so it does help some.

      As for Nat Geo….thanks again for all you have done to make preppers look like idiots. Real preppers are very low profile not the loud bloviating dime store cowboys you film. Hey they got to make a buck I suppose. Hopefullty the rest of my life will be one big episode of dancing with the stars and any preps made will be for nothing that is my Plan”A” If that falls through I hope Mr Apex learns early on that fighting people in their own back yard where they know every nook and cranny and they know all their neghbors (as good preppers should) could be a very costly affair in people and materials. The very act of them moving into an area where they are not from and setting up shop would invite being shot up like any stray dog in the country. I beleive that the ones that have to be afraid is the unprepared as they are much softer targets and probably easily hit in the early stages of an event. As for the well prepared that whole thing of shooting back and then being overwhelmed by the local community hunting down stray dogs in their midst would tend to make Mr. Apex Warrior and his career as a would be Road Warrior criminal a short one. Being a prepper is about surviving hard times Mr. Apex Warrior when engaged regularly in activities that would shorten that goal seems more like a death wish than a survival action plan…either way I have plans for many situations and you’re one of them.

      This tub of sh€t is not something you need to worry about. You need to worry about people like ex-special forces, organized criminals (drug gangs, Russian mafia), rogue elements in the military-industrial complex and anyone who is willing to lead them to build a new world.

      After a breakdown, you will not be left to live a neo-hippie lifestyle that looks straight out of Danish porn from the 70s (as appealing as that is). No, there will be a power struggle as new forces rise up to replace the gap left by legitimate authority. And that space will be fought over using brute force and guile and the winner will be the group who can horde the most territory and booty (not the kind that shakes on those hip-hop videos).

      For examples of this phenomenon in action, you don’t have to look further than the breakdown in the former Soviet Union. Look who got all the wealth and power? Ex-spies, musclemen, ex-military. Your typical street-level, corner boy trash lacks the brains and the organizational skills to pose a big long-term threat. Those clowns will be exterminated quickly in the first days, weeks and months. The people doing the ‘cleansing’ will be ex-military: highly organized, well-disciplined, know all the tricks in the book, battle hardened. Nature cannot abide a power vacuum. Something must fill the space. And it won’t be some crack-addled ghetto punk who can barely string a sentence together. It will be guys who feel like they got burned by the system and it is time for payback.

      And they will need bitches to pay a tithe to them so that they can get their houses set up, their regular ‘servicing’ from ladies, and so they can start their business investments. You will be that bitch, I imagine.

      “Jewish Wall Street”…which underwrites the multi-nationals…DICTATES policy to the corporations under their control and SEND our manufacturing jobs and all the attendant white collar jobs OVERSEAS.

      Doesn’t matter if a country is a “democracy” or “communist.”

            Justice and OPSEC, if both of you think it’s wrong for white people to point out certain deficiencies in other ethnic groups, then I have to wonder about the 2 of you. If I see someone doing something wrong REGARDLESS OF COLOR, GENDER, RELIGION, ETC. I will speak out against it. You can take your racist label and shove it. Neither one of you have a leg to stand on. don’t tell white people what they can or cannot say.

      Yes, Virginia…there will be gangs, and patrols of those looking to take what you have including your life.

      Story as old as time there. I don’t think you need to worry about humpty dumpty Tyler Smith however. He is def. going to have a great fall. And the pieces may never be found after some ones dogs have him for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

      There are going to be elevated levels of roving gangs, thugs and plain criminal elements shopping your immediate areas however. Those who take instead of give.
      You know what they say about takers though- Givers get, takers get taken. Someone will see that oversized target a mile away (day or night)and pop his top with a silenced .308 AP round. Shhickkk! Splat! Thud.

      Speaking of a mile away, that is why you need a great early warning system in place, be it community patrols, electronic warning devices or even obstacles. The idea is to slow them down and alert you before they can get too close. It will most likely be ‘Road Warrior’ like with organized groups of thugs attacking any weaker or poorly defended locations first. Once the thugs find out you have something, they will attack en masses and probably not give up until you or they are dead.

      You will have to use outside the box thinking and strategies to defeat the numbers against you. Think home built scalar weapons and technologies that can lay down a threat over a wide area. Anyone who has not stocked up on old microwave ovens yet, may want to do so. You do not want to get in the way of an unshielded high power magnetron gun, it’s not fun. :)

      Let see how smart they are, judging from the picture.

      Too much body armor. Weight the most important item to consider for mobility and endurance.
      The knife attachment. Stationary. “Predator Movie” Can become an obstructional in movement. Think he can pull mags from pouches without gutting himself. Where are his extra mag pouches? First aid kit or water source like canteen or camelback. Can he clear a Jam? Load a mag without difficulty under fire?
      Body armor has protrusions. Can not lay flat and if he had to move through foliage with vines he would be entangled. On concrete would not have body stability.
      Helmet looks to be some sort of steel pot. Easy Bullet penetration.

      Farmers apply the same principle to the four-legged predators on the ranch – they hang the coyote carcasses on their fence line.

      The smart preppers aren’t advertising who or where they are, so how would these thugs know where to go? How does one identity the “preppers”? Even the government doesn’t know it all. Even pulling a list of email addresses or names from a site like this one wouldn’t give accurate information because some people just show up to see what’s going on. I don’t see a list of preppers being sent out to everyone, such as is the issue with the gun owners. So how will these thugs know where to go to look for food, etc? Furthermore, is this band of robbers nation-wide with a coordinated effort? They’d have to be in order to make sure they got everyone that saved up food. If there is 3 million preppers vs 350 million people, then it’d be like finding a needle in a hay stack. I just want to thank them for giving me a “heads-up”. I’ll be working even harder now, to prepare for them. If they’re going to kick my butt, they should never ever give a warning.

    58. The VOICE from the Outer Wordl says:

      I wondered HOW long it would be till this got ‘noticed’,

      Howdy Daisy…tis a grim reminder of ‘what awaits’, No? A few days ago I speculated on the existeence of what could – efectively – be termed, a ‘sub-species’ of Humanity …resident within the main body thereof, USUALLY ‘hidden’ from view. With this little expose’
      I suppose that the fellow members of THIS ONE’S ‘tribe’ who are more ‘upscale’ would VERY much like that THIS one should soon meet a rather abrupt END…for THESE do not like to be so revealed publically…much like the current ‘Vampire’ theme presents those similarly inclined to prey on the ‘herd’; to NEVER reveal thier existence, EVER…Indeed, these DO NOT like ‘publicity’ in any way, shape or form….Eh? Needless to say, when “TSHTF” those of THAT persusaion are to be TERMINATED forthwith…with EXTREME PREJUDICE…’root and branch’, nuff said there….

      On another note, it is instructive to pay close attention to the on-going Congressional hearings to ‘Vet’ Ms Yellen; for none reachess to that particular ‘strata’ of existence without having been ‘groomed’ along the way extensively…therefor, given that she has declared forthrightly – yesterday – to the panel weighing her fitnes for the position, that ‘…there is NO current ‘bubble’s of which she is aware.” in complete contradiction to both the observed FACT of their existence in EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE, as well the strident proclaimations of same from nearly every major entity associated therewith…including now the pundits at CNBC, of all things! Then WHAT does THIS mean.

      It is – actually – not too very difficult to interpret this situation…it has a LIMITED number of interpretations. Specifically, the one which jumps to mind most directly is this:

      “THIS can be interpreted as the “PTB” declaring open WAR on “Middle Class America’ for surely it is NOT they who are suffering the erosion of purchasing power at home..in each less and less than effective check they receive weekly with which to ‘pay the bills’. Yelen WILL ‘push ther lever on the FEDS printing presses to ‘WARP SPEED’…and WELD them there; it’s her clear history.

      We have observed here before that NEAR to the End, it is neccesary for THOSE (PTB) – to have any hope of escaping a Global, PLANETARY ‘WRATH’ – to mis-direct that murderous anger so generated to other venues…I submit that Yellen is a piece of that misdirection…. effectively, a ‘sacrificial goat’. The reasons for this are relatively direct, and include the fact that Larry Summers DECLINED the position, as stated, ‘due to personal considerations, family matters’….the MOST powerful position of this PLANET…one which THOSE of that ‘ilk’ would kill their own Mother for…slowly, roasted over an open fire, and thereafter EATEN by…and he DECLINES the position?! Fat FOOKIN chance…on that basis.

      Not likely, Folks…the psychology of those is to PURSUE POWER at ANY cost…ANY cost whatsoever. As such then nearly the sole and only conclusion is that Mr Summers – a wHITE MALE…of those who have DEMONSTRATED the most ADVANCED, fully honed, ‘sense of SURVIVAL of any group on this planet! – in doing so SHOWS that HE does NOT beleive that the position is ‘tenable’…or rather, ‘SRVIVEABLE’. Hence, then the conclusiion runs as; We MAY now be seeing their final preparations before terminal ‘departure’. To be sure, the political class is in Upheaval, what with the DEBACLE which O-Care is PROVING to be…funny, I wonder HOW much of THAT WAS ‘engineeered’ behind the scenes…Check…the Economy is nearing the point of ‘no return’, likely PASSED that point, actually (hence any possibility of pursuit will be STRONGLY reduced’ …Check….the military has lately been purged of most of those of a ‘patrioric’ bent…Check!…The derivatives market is going like a house ‘a fire, pushed past 1.4 QUADRILLION dollar mark, MORE than enough to ‘vaporize’ the entire monetary system of the WORLD…Gee, wasn”t OUR ‘test case’ …MF GLobal so MUCH FUN!!!! Yippy -Ky-Yay…just THINK of what it will be like when it’s EVERYONE!!!

      To be SURE, there ARE other ‘check’ points here to be listed….VERY MANY, in fact, but I won’t bore you with the details…Hell, you KNOW most of those rather well…we ALL do! I THINK my thesis here is sufficiently ‘well founded’ based on these few ‘tick points’.

      There now remains only the final act of this play…the final ‘smokescreen’ which ASSURES that THOSE CAN ‘get away with IT’…watch for the further EFFORTS of this administration – prompted from behind the scenes, naturally – to generate a Global conflict of significant – hopefully for them, of course – of ASCENDING, INCREASING magnitude. The manner in which this comes might well be “suprising”…THOSE are a ‘creative lot’ aren’t they? What ever happens it will first NEED to gain a momentum before it is EVIDENT – to US – that such is actually enroute…else it might could be derailed…as was the pathetic efforts of the PTB to engage us with North Korea a bit ago.

      Also, No…there is NO way that they can SAFELY escape the consequence of what has been done – the THEFT of the WEALTH of the entire World – WITHOUT starting a WAR of terrible magnitude, somewhere…ONLY that (the FOG of WAR) is a sufficiently confusing mess to allow for them to escaspe us…and as well accomplish an additional NECCESARY function….to eliminate the BULK of those who WOULD later pursue them…think here of, Oh say…something on the order of 6.2 to 6.8 Billion casualty’s as being sufficient to their ends…Ya think?…Simulataneously….that also SERVES to rectify the Global RESOURCE/POPULATION problem as well…a ‘clean sweep’ as it were!

      Well, that’s about enough ‘Sunny Sh_t’, I think, for one day… Adios Muchacho’s

      JOG

      If we have a economic collapse that sends the usa into a dark ages period, and i say IF becuase in history the world has had 8 economic collapses before abd civilization recovered and moved forward, its going to be interesting to watch.

      in my experience, most crime takes place relatively close to where the criminals live. for instance, we have rich neighborhoods here in Houston that are generally crime free compared to the bad neighborhoods.

      if there’s an actual collapse and people have no resource but to take from others, i shudder to think of comes to normally safe suburbia after that; especially after the 40 years of building this tidal wave.

      Dear Mr. Smith,

      Those who go out looking for trouble are never as well off as those who have trained to deal with trouble. “There’s nothing you can do to stop us.” Your arrogance is overshadowed only by your ignorance. There are tens of thousands of active duty and retired law enforcement and military preppers who are well trained to deal with you and your ilk.

      I truly hope that, if the things you say in this program are true, you will have a change of heart. You do not understand the ramifications and are not prepared for the consequences of kicking in the door of a man who is resolute and well trained in defending his home. Unfortunately, should that time come and you do kick in the door of “the wrong guy,” it will already be too late for you to change.

      Now, while it is not too late, make the change and truly prepare for an uncertain future. There is nothing to prevent you from becoming a noble, virtuous man who seeks to live in peace with his fellow man and defend his castle.

      I do find it hilarious that in his Facebook message he whines about threats against him when he perpetrated the same thing on national TV. He will just crawl back under whatever rock Nat/Geo found him under.

        This guy is a fat, sleazy, criminal, loser! HE isn’t a prepper. He is a POS looking for an excuse to use his weapons to harm and steal from fellow American citizens. He is absolute garbage! I take the show as a confession that he plans on using his firearms for an unlawful purpose! Take away his guns and his twinkees. Arrest his fat ass and put him in a jail cell, that is if you can find one large enough to fit him.

      I’m not concerned about large groups of pillagers. Maybe 30% of households have guns when only 3% of households will have food. Large groups will take a lot of casualties trying to get food. How many would die attacking 10 houses before they find food? Sure, a couple of idiots could kick in my doors but I know my house and they don’t. Most likely I’ll get at least one of them. From my understanding, people defending their homes have about a 4-1 tactical advantage.

      Tyler Smith and crew live in the second most populated county in the state of Washington. In the western half, not the American Redoubt. I think he will be vastly outnumbered by the unprepared. He probably shouldn’t have revealed his full name or location.

      His cousin’s brother-in-law is named Junior. That should give everyone a clue.

      Also, the town of Buckley has only about 4,000 people, and more than the normal percentage are named Smith. I would guess that most of the people there are cousins a dozen ways.

      This guy OBVIOUSLY works in government.

      “Mr. Smith” has all the qualifications of a dedicated uniformed public servant of Murka, circa 2013 A.D. The sterling qualifications you can find on his resume include his disgusting fatbody, amorality, psychopathology and his many years of experience as a sadist who anticipates with glee the suffering of innocent people. For how could a regime such as ours NOT have made use of such “talents” up to this point?

      He is a perfect example of the type that Uncle Sugar keeps on his payroll. One would think that with the taxpayer largesse he has doubtless ALREADY received as a servant of ZOG, either in the DHS, TSA, US ARMY (as a proud veteran of Abu Ghraib), or even in his local police department, he’d have sufficient funds to acquire his own preps the “right” way.

      In order to do so, like most of “our heroes” (such as those who were kicking in the doors of row houses in Boston and rousting out the inhabitants at gunpoint a short time ago), he’d probably need to curtail his habitual spending on rot-gut booze, Cheetos and she-male entertainment videos, and divert the cash savings thus accrued to prepping. This won’t happen, when the opportunity exists for him and those LIKE him to do their prepping by STEALING others’ preps under the cover of LAW.

      These fatted swine, who are all doubtless former or current employees of government, are reveling in their fifteen minutes of fame courtesy of the NatGeo Channel. They need to realize two things: a) There are people out there who are even more ruthless and cruel than they are, but who are with the GOOD guys, and b) they may already know where these marauders and their families reside. And if they didn’t know, they certainly do NOW.

      Way to go, geniuses.

          Or it can have the opposite effect altogether. That’s the thing with amateurs, morons, fanatics and/or psychos. You can’t count on anything other than the hard kill to make them stop. Think about it. Professionals are trained to deal with casualties, at least until a certain threshold is reached. And they are trained to pick up the slack for their fallen.

          Amateurs, it could go any of a number of ways. They can break, they can keep going or they can go berserk and at that point it’s anyone’s game.

          Demoralization also only works with people who value their lives and health. With fanatics, not so much. And in the heat of things, it also only works when people have a certain of situational awareness but insufficient training to deal with their losses; but then again, lack do training, as is said, can also yield results more detrimental than helpful to you.

          So yeah, go for the hard kill if you actually have to fight.
