    Howdy all....

    We were considering adding a prepper section to the forum. Not looking to go over the top with it. Maybe a weapons preppers section, maybe 1 to 2 other threads as well. I know some take it to different levels, we want this to be a place where people can post what they do, pictures, ideas and such. Just at thought here..... We are not set on adding it, just wanted everyone's feedback.

    Thoughts?
    Hate it? Love it?

    Chime in....:D

    It couldn't hurt to have a section for it - There are many ways to be 'prepared.'

    Possibly start off with a thread on Disaster readiness? (Hurricane - Have a week of water and food stored in advance, sort of thing.)

    As with anything, there are what some would consider 'extremes'.

    Sounds interesting provided you can find a moderator(s) with enough patience to keep things from turning to name calling or getting too ridiculous.

    I question the wisdom of someone that would dig a hole in their back yard with the intention of living in it.

    Keep an open mind. I have a hole dug in my backyard that has a concrete storm shelter there. Got it almost 20 years ago after a close call with a tornado. I've used it several times over the years living out in the country. Used it last year with my daughter, her husband, and my granddaughter when an F3 was on the ground nearby and headed our way.

    I don't consider myself some crazed prepper for having this hole in my backyard.

    I agree that it sounds interesting. I have actually been looking around at survival/preparedness/prepper forums to see what is out there. Be nice to have a place on TGT for this information/discussion.

    Lol, this site is 90% BS and 10% gun related.


    That said, there have been threads on preparedness on the OT section and it seems to work fine that way. Don't see a need for another section for that topic.
