When I heard about the threat a former military man is reported to have made recently, I have to say that ita€™s not something Ia€™m really that shocked to hear. I heard recently about an a€?ex-militarya€? whoa€™s survival game plan following a collapse is to go after preppers. Unfortunately, therea€™s more than one armed person likely to go after preppers, not just someone who is former military. Not to overlook the dangers that exist in less populated areas a€” and so expect a number of people from less populated areas to also take it upon themselves to go after preppers or simply just go after anyone living up in the hills outside town, especially in those big nice houses. Personally, I believe in praying and having a right relationship with God so that my actions here on earth can be guided from up above. So how do we defend ourselves against bandits and murderers with military background and firearms?
Posses a€“ Typically formed after an initial crime has taken place, and sometimes at the request of local law enforcement when ita€™s recognized that local law enforcement is short handed. Vigilante(s) a group of people (or just a person on his own) who sets after someone on a pursuit of justice when ita€™s believed that law enforcement or local justice officials are not capable of the task themselves. Counter-Insurgency a€“ Military or political action taken against guerillas or revolutionaries.
Patrol a€“ A person or group of people sent to keep watch over an area, especially a detachment of guards or police.
Security Team a€“ Group measures taken by a military unit, activity, or installation to protect itself against all acts designed to, or which may, impair its effectiveness. As I contemplate the threat that some preppers will face soon after a collapse, Ia€™m trying to find a solution a€” by looking at what has worked for some people in the recent past. Any prepper that has been communicating online within the prepper community has possibly revealed details to others that in the wrong hands, or if a€?harvesteda€? by an online troller for information, can also make that person (and their family) a sitting duck in a time of collapse. Or a€¦ have you been down on the gun range and shared with others some of the things you and your family are doing to prepare for an SHTF? Are you a well off prepper who has hired a private contractor to install state of the art preps (perhaps a bunker) and that private contractor has brought in workers (hired hands) that a€” in a time of collapse a€” know everything about your state of the art preps you had put in in recent years and where you live or plan to live? In the wrong hands, certain information is likely right now setting up several people for a possible easy hit soon after a time of collapse. In a time of collapse, realize youa€™re a lot like a pioneer family in the American West, all by yourself out on the open prairie.
A handful of guns isna€™t likely to protect you from a warrior band of Indians as they silently stalk you and take your lives at the moment you let down your guard for a moment. Keep in mind that any ex-military bandits may be skilled at long distance shooting as well. If you have several people on site, set up a guard tower, built in such a way that a bandit with a long range rifle a few hundred yards away cana€™t simply sneak up and pick them off. Survey the zones where your guards will be watching the area from, and then proceed to clear away brush for 300 yards or more so that there is no place for bandits to use as cover.

For anyone approaching, they will likely notice the wide open range around your encampment, home, or a€?forta€?, then theya€™ll survey you from afar, and proceed with a plan. Your goal is for these intruders to a€?choosea€? the path that takes them behind the areas of brush, rocks, fallen trees, etc, you have a€?artificiallya€? placed beforehand for this purpose.
In the meantime, your sniper is set up outside the 300 yard perimeter, buried in the dirt, perhaps just the top of his eyes and some grass hiding him from anyone approaching and who has crossed within the 300 yard perimeter. These bandits, feeling good about their line of approach toward the guard tower, have unknowingly walked into a trap, and now your sniper has a clear line of sight and relatively short distance to shoot from. Your ability to pull this off while working as a team will rely on a drive to stay alive, and an understanding that someone is coming after you, and that if you dona€™t set a trap, you are all sitting ducks.
If theya€™re extra cautious, and you look like too easy of a mark, they may a€?smell a trapa€?, and upon further inspection from a distance may even spot your sniper or anyone else you have hidden outside the 300 yard perimeter you have cleared. Thus the reason for the two guards in the guard tower a€” if bandits see you have posted security, we are betting that theya€™re likely to conclude you dona€™t have much other security aside from these posted guards, and so those guards are who theya€™re likely to go after first.
And so they are likely to approach from the only places offering concealment from the guard tower a€” the brush you have placed to offer what any trespassers will feel is concealment.
Invest in one or more good pairs of binoculars for the day (you dona€™t need to carry a rifle to be on watch), and of course one or more of your a€?security teama€? should be trained in sharp shooting. If you have the man power you can assign a security patrol to patrol the surrounding area and a second security patrol to give the first patrol team time to rest. If you have two way radios, realize that an external threat could be equipped with their own two way radios. If you have shared information openly anywhere, to anyone, about your preps, your location should be considered possibly compromised, and ita€™s time to consider going elsewhere a€” but this time around, being a lot more careful with the information and people you opt to communicate with online. Analyze and collect data from these training exercises to make your defenses more secure and your people more ready for that threat coming from ex-military a€” or anyone else with bad intentions. Last but not least a€¦ if youa€™ve made a few alliances and therea€™s enough of you, you can have yourself a somewhat secure encampment in place.

And of course fleeing major cities around America will be former gang members a€” the bigger their group, the more dangers they will bring. You may be able to keep looters at bay with a few warning shots fired from any number of guns a€” but staying holed up in your home, in a suburban neighborhood, is likely to fail you at some point. God may lead some of you to pick up arms, which he did quite a bit of in Old Testament days, and all I can say to that is may Goda€™s will be done. Local men at arms come together to form a group to bring to justice (or take the life or lives) of a€?dangerousa€? criminal offenders. In many ways a prepper who is holed up in a cabin or house out in the country side is a bit of a sitting duck, in the same way that pioneer families were sitting ducks for American Indian tribes who didna€™t like their new neighbors and wanted guns, horses, and sometimes the white mana€™s women.

Or maybe theya€™ll just circle you and rush you, hoping to cause a panic, overcome you with fear, and easily pick you off with arrows or bullets. One thing you can do is build a wall, a lot like a frontier settlement, so no one can see inside from a far off distance and pick you off from a tree or hillside. A guard tower can be something as simple as a tree-stand within 20-30 yards of your encampment, and some smaller trees arranged tee-pee style around your tree-stand, giving the a€?guardsa€? inside a bit of cover.
These intruders are likely to see these spots as easy hiding places, and quickly decide this is the best route to use to approach your camp, where they can get a€?better aima€? at the two guards (if they know or suspect you have guards) up in the tower. If your external threats are ex-military, they may decide to strike at a time theya€™re assuming you are weakest or most of your group is sleeping (for example, the hours just before dawn).
Each sniper should have a line of sight on each other, as well as the likely paths of an approaching threat. That 300 yard perimeter of brush thata€™s been cleared needs to include a line of sight in all directions, and you need to consider an approach from any direction a possibility (dona€™t neglect any areas around and within your perimeter). Rehearse a few training exercises, where two or more people from your group approach from different directions, as if theya€™re bandits, with the goal to sneak past your defenses.

You see, if someone wants you out of that house bad enough, all they have to do is set it on fire, and the smoke and flames are likely to drive you out, like smoking a rabbit out of ita€™s hole. Once brought to justice (or death), a posse typically disbands and goes back to their regular lives. Sometimes they just wanted to take a few scalps, and it didna€™t matter if it came from a white man or simply an enemy tribe. Of course not many people are actually likely to build a wall, but Ia€™m just sharing what has worked for some pioneers (and military forts) in centuries past, and one of the same reasons that U.S. After all, a lot of us believe wea€™re living in the End of Days straight from the last chapter of the Bible. No one to come to your aid should some unwanted thieves show up one day with guns, military training, and no qualms about shooting your family, all because you have been pre-targeted because you happen to believe in prepping.
I do know that not everyone believes in God, and for those outside of the protection and provision of God, it may be your wits and your preps today that may keep some of you alive longer than others in a dangerous time of collapse.
Just dona€™t over look the fact that right now as you read this Jesus is knockinga€¦ If youa€™ll look to him, before it all hits the fan, he may have a way out of this for you.
