    If you have to ask, no explanation will suffice.

    Good luck to you and yours. Stay safe and healthy...

    A little good faith will go far right now. Just being kind, and generous, rules that I think will make a difference. I'm still well armed should all of my efforts be ignored. I can't believe how hard .45 ACP is to find right now...

    Well, I hope nobody ever threatens you.
    Question: Why do some men like to refer to a dick when they are trying to make a point?

    No kidding. It's also difficult to find .380 for some reason; I carry a Colt Government Model .380 that used to belong to my Dad.

    My brother was up in Georgia on business yesterday and came home with 10,000 rounds of various munitions...

    Why do some people immediately think of their guns and ammo in any kind of emergency? Is it a self preservation thing? Why do they always think the worst?

    What I don't have is any interest in engaging in a debate someone who believes that the world is wonderful and kind and we all love each other and, oh my god, why would you ever need a gun?

    I could sit here and explain "reality" to you until dinner time, and you won't accept it. Your ilk is common on forums like this, and I've learned to simply laugh at you and move on to more intelligent folks who are actually interested in discussing instead of arguing...

    Why are people hoarding bottled water and toilet paper?

    As do I. If someone chooses to do that, though, I know I'm prepared to deal with it. You, on the other hand, are content with being a victim.

    That probably looks very good on you...

    Because the forum software won't allow me to tell you that your opinion means s-h-i-t to me...

    What is the legitimate reason to not think or otherwise expect the worst during a time of crisis?

    Because they need to stay hydrated and they need to wipe their butts after they use the bathroom.:nod:

    Did tap water suddenly become undrinkable?

    Now you're at the point of making incorrect assumptions based on no evidence. I never said the world is all wonderful and kind. I'm also a gun owner. Just not a paranoid one. So, any other incorrect assumptions that you'd like to make about me?

    For many people yes. In my town we are all on well water. As are many of the surrounding towns. While our water won't hurt us, it tastes awful and therefore undrinkable. So we rely on bottled water for drinking. Even with out town on well water we have had no issues getting water at market

    The "reality" is that there will always be someone who would willingly seize the opportunity to threaten you, attack you or take your stuff for no other reason than they had the chance.

    To believe otherwise is ignorant...

    Thank you. I have family members who own guns also. I haven't heard even one of them talk about stocking up on guns and ammo.

    This Brita pitcher is about forty bucks and it works great. I know, I have two of them. I fill it with tap water and then that water is filtered and it tastes great...

    Your answer to his question - "just in case" - is his answer to your question.

    So you believe someone is going to drive up to my place in the hopes that I might have some toilet paper and take it at gun point? :roll:

    Tried it. Doesn't work. Especially with the levels of iron we get.

    I watched someone take a fist to the jaw over a package of chicken thighs in the commissary at Naval Air Station Jacksonville the other day.

    Let's just say I allow for the possibility...
