I left this at Protein Wisdom:
"Finding yourself on the side of a road in a driving rain really, REALLY wishing you had a spare tire is nothing compared to the feeling you get when it becomes “Damn, really could use a basement full of Mosin Nagants and a bunch of bullets right NOW”….
… because when you figure out you really need a weapon, it’s generally too late to begin your waiting period."
I recommend the thread. It's all quite good.
