I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself! I am a 28 year old mother of 3, military in my entire family and my fiance is also an ex-marine (I'm not allowed to say that in front of him...he says "once a Marine, always a Marine!") but I feel like I am lying if I say he is still a Marine if that makes sense. Anyhow...I am beginning the long process of starting life as a prepper. I am very new to the scene even though I have been obsessed with the idea for quite sometime. It's time for me to stop obsessing and start doing something. I have feared 2012 since I was in highschool and the whole Myan scare became a big story. Now I am more concerened with economic meltdown or communism taking over the states. Even the possibility of severe weather patterns effecting our way of life, as that seems to be happening a lot more here lately, is something that I am ready to prep for. I am a republican and proud of it. I support gun ownership and self defense is one of my main concerns if something were to happen to my "Marine" and I were left to fend for myself and my children without the help of an experienced fighter/shooter to guide us and protect us. I hope that this forum/community is more helpful than the others I have been on which seem to be unused. Thank you for reading and I hope that I can contribute in some way to the community in return for my knowledge gained!

Sincerely,
HJ1984

Welcome aboard! So where do you want to start ?
Well I want to begin with the purchase of a pistol/handgun that I can handle but still packs a punch. I then want to work on a plan for communicating with family when the cell phones go down, grid is down etc. I am working on a first aid kit, and looking to take a first aid course so that I am able to help myself or family when needed. I also feel that those skills, though limited to basic triage, would be able to be bartered if needed. Then I need to figure out food storage, canning (is that a thing round here? LoL) and bug out bags so that if we need to leave (we don't want to bug out if we don'1 110% need to) and a plan of where to go. We have kids and live in an duplex with literally NO storage. I am thinking of purchasing a second shed for the back yard for storage of items that temperatures won't harm. It gets cold here in winter.
