Just a fun little parable....

There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange
students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab, the Prof
noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and
stretching as if his back hurt.

The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him
he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting
communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's
government and install a new communist regime.

In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange
question. He asked:

"Do you know how to catch
wild pigs?"

The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young
man said that it was no joke.

"You catch
wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the
ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn.
When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the
place where they are used to coming.

When
they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up
another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You
continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the
last side.

The pigs, which are used to
the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again.

You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.
Suddenly the
wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the
fence, but they are caught.

Soon they go
back to eating the free corn . They are so used to it that they have
forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their
captivity."

The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening
in America . The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and
keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as
supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax cuts, tax
exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops
(CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc. While we continually lose our
freedoms, just a little at a time.

One should always remember two
truths:

1) There is no such thing as a free lunch

2) and
you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can
do it yourself.


If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you will
probably ignore this parable.

But God help you when the
gate slams shut!

Only problem, the Wild Pig didn't have the right to own a gun. Well it also didn't have the ability to pull the trigger if it did own a gun...but you get the point.

But they are trying to take the guns away from us, remember.

they are also trying to place taxes on Ammunition so it is no feasible to buy it, unless your of the very elite.

Or you steal it. But then you end up in a cage with a free meal 3x a day.

How do you stock up as if I didn't know. Does that mean buy a Dillon XL 650, SL 900, Ponsness Warren 550B, hulls, caliber cases, caliber reloading dies, shot, (1 ton), bullets (3K), powder (?), Primers (??) and all that stuff to make them? not to mention having the weapons to shoot the completed cartridges? Could be? Also have a large very good safe to store the weapons in a secure room. could be again.

you got it...stock up and have lots of extra 2x4s and nails...you have to be able to board up the house when the Zombies come...seriously...count your internal doors too...closet doors and bedroom doors, they are a great way to get boarding up wood fast. Also I recommend a quick exit stategy, like an attic escape hatch that leads to your very heavy durable vehicle...

oh and dogs...Zombies love chasing dogs so you have a couple dogs that you can part with...send them out...the zombies chase the dogs...you make your escape...

great stuff...head shots...zombies hate head shots...have a good scope and a scatter gun...like shot gun or something...plus a pistol for those "close encounters"
