Your dream set up for dealing with SHTF/ragers

Post by vegasguy » Mon Oct 27, 2014 6:43 pm

What is your dream setup?

You have won the lottery a few years before this happens, you try and warn people but they do not listen to you.

What is your dream set up?

Where is it located?

What is your dream armory?

What is your dream list of actresses you want to have at the fort?

What are the defenses?

How long before things get back to normal?

Will you have robots to do the grunt work?

Where is it located? Mountains. Preferably south half of Appalachian Trail (or that area), or the PNW.

What is your dream armory? Right now, a FA AK74 or FA AKM. If I had more experience, other weapons might be included, like an AA 12 with grenades or an M79 and dual-wielding G18s. Maybe a phased plasma rifle in the 40 watt range. An E11 and BlasTech DL 44 would be cool

What is your dream list of actresses you want to have at the fort? All the cute ones! But not the cranky ones. All the cute nice ones!

What are the defenses? Castle walls, manned by cute actresses toting cool guns.

How long before things get back to normal? With this kind of setup, I hope "never." At least, not till I"m long gone.

Will you have robots to do the grunt work? Skynet. So....no. The spawn of my loins will do just fine. Besides, I believe in doing my own work, and leading by example.

Buy Amazon and deliver my message of doom via delivery drone. Then they'll listen. Oh yes, they'll listen.

In my nuclear amphibian submarine base, beneath an active volcano. Like I'd give you any more detail than that.

Well that's a bit presumptuous, isn't it? Why actresses, do you only want responses from the male gender and how do you know which way I swing anyway? And for that matter, why does it have to be a fort? If you must know: Image

If by "work" you mean giving rides to cats wearing shark hoodies, then hell yeah.

Some isolated place with a fortified house completely independent of the need for light (thanks to solar panel), water (a secured fresh source) and gas until last and wooden for the rest.
Ton of book about survival strategies, basic medicine and some about electronic and mechanical stuff.
Filters for water treatment.
Some motorized vehicle and don't motorized vehicle.
Seeds and howto book for plants.
vegasguy wrote:Where is it located?
Probably a mountain.
vegasguy wrote:What is your dream armory?
Assault Rifles and guns that use the same caliber with suppressor and viewfinder, possibly with low recoil. And perhaps even something more substantial as grenades and mines.
Also some tactical knife with different length.
Night vision devices with plenty rechargeable batteries.
I do not know if after a search on the web I will able point out specific models.
vegasguy wrote:What is your dream list of actresses you want to have at the fort?
No one, I would like someone useful for the survival and who you could trust.
vegasguy wrote:What are the defenses?
Static passive defenses as a build of solid reinforced concrete, reinforced windows, a closed circuit camera, outside barricades.
vegasguy wrote:How long before things get back to normal?
Be ready for years so plenty of canned food and dehydrated food.
vegasguy wrote:Will you have robots to do the grunt work?
On a sci-fi era, sure, but we aren't now with a similar development.

I think this could be a good starting point for an apocalypse caused by zombie. :lol:
Anyway in this hypotetical scenario, no matter the preparation, the bigger problem would be to surround yourself with people you trust and honest.

What is your dream setup?
Nolan Ryan, Johnny Bench, Mark McGwire, Jackie Robinson, Mike Schmidt, Honus Wagner, Hank Aaron, Joe Dimaggio, Ted Williams (all in their prime).
You have won the lottery a few years before this happens, you try and warn people but they do not listen to you.
Image Sounds like their problem...
What is your dream set up?
Most people don't even realize that this is something completely different than "setup". I am going to go with a series of isometrics.
Where is it located?
Which one?
What is your dream armory?

Hmmm, I am thinking that will go over like a lead balloon with the missus.
What are the defenses?
You saw the picture right?
How long before things get back to normal?
A couple of days.
Will you have robots to do the grunt work?
Absolutely. What that work is exactly I will leave to your imagination.

Dream setup would be a small island with a wall around it and I will take North Korea's nuke stockpile . I would declare it the Republic of jf89 and launch nukes at trespassers. Every year or so there would be an election but I would always win (by using Vladimir Putin tactics on my opponent). This would be a free republic with a common sense justice system and a lot of guns, about 500 for every citizen to be exact. Political debates would be handled in a gladiator areana with the people deciding on the weapons.

I also like the idea of an island. Fresh water perhaps, maybe in the great lakes. But then you hafta deal with cold.

Regardless, I'd like to have beefy fenced areas... enough room for goats, pigs, rabbits, and chickens. Then have a separate area for basic crops.

I'd also like castle... to keep things classy but functional.

And a vast array of weaponry and vehicles.

For people/crew, my interview process would be extensive. The final question would be whether they think Die Hard is the greatest Christmas movie of all time. Answer: No, it's the greatest movie, Christmas or not, of all time.

My own special forces battalion and compound in the PNW mountains. All answering to their supreme leader - me. With their armory and artillery. No limitations. Anything SF can have - we have. Hard bunker like structures. With fortified firing positions. Underground well with spring water. Solar/wind power and backup gen. Almost unlimited fuel supply. Armored 4 wheel drive vehicles. Huge armory of AR's/AK's/Shoulder fired rocket launchers etc. etc. Enough ammo to rule a small region. Crops that grow indoors and out. Basically a self contained military base. With personnel i.e. - doctors, fighters, scientists etc. etc. Enough equipment to outfit our own large shop. For building anything we may need. Laboratories. Armed Helicopters, fuel, mechanics, spare parts.

I could go on. But you get the idea.

Oh. And lots of porn stars with college degrees. For my male and female fighters.

So ya. A dictator of my own mountain retreat. With its own forces and weapons and supplies enough to last a lifetime. (See how fast that devolved?)

A castle would be cool. I was thinking of a tropical island though ,maybe with an alligator pond. I would also like a security team with armored segwaes (sp). Everyone would own AR15s and background checks would only be required for AKs and that would probably just be a mental evaluation.
