For all of shtf types; what type of shelter do you have or plan on building.  Whether it be for protection from crazy mobs, looters, or federal agents coming to confiscate your guns.

Is it in a rural area; what is is made of.  What is it designed to withstand?  Rifle bullets, grenades, more?  What supplies do you have on hand?  How long will they last you, etc?

How about a nice tinfoil tent and a tinfoil hat and jacket for those times that you have to stick your head outside to check for black helicopters?

I could tell you all about my underground bunker loaded with weapons, ammo, and living provisions for a year, but then I'd have to take you out!

I'm saving up for a decomissioned nuke silo.

I'll go sit at the bottom of the tube with the 2 headed rats and my tinfoil hat safe as can be.

Hey, we need an icon wearing a tinfoil hat

I saw that on Discovery Channel once!  Some guy actually bought an old silo facility for next to nothing. He then turned it into a really cool undergroung house!  For real!!

There is a guy developing them into high $ homes some where out west iirc. The underground control rooms are in pretty good shape but the silos are trashed, rusted out and flooded.

the best shelter for a SHTF is not getting into one. Live and let live. Life is beautiful.
