Recently, there has been a bunch of threads discussing SHTF and what happens after and how we are going to deal with it and if it will ever really happen.....it got me to thinking.

I got to thinking what was the trigger that would set in motion your personal SHTF scenario?

Mine would be the limitation of avaliable food stuffs in our city.

In my area it would be loss of power forcing the suburanittes grocery store closures, and coffee houses. The locals would survive fine but the "natives" would start to get restless. Especially down in the "big sleazy". It would become a third world country down there.

IMHO, serious attack on the nation's food supply. I'll enjoy watching the vegans/vegetarians & non-hunters writhe in starvation agony, as I munch on venison, quail, etc.

When the sheeple stop going to work out of fear and the economy begines its collapse. The preceding event that causes that to happen could be any number of things. The folks that havent prepared will start to get "restless" and hungry. When they cant get to the Piggly Wiggly for their dinner and they coming looking for my food and water.

Probably when some terrorists strike us on our own soil and kill thousands. Or when the Feds surround and storm a compound full of civilian women and children resulting in their deaths. Or when Fed, state and local governments start taking private property when it suits their needs. Or when communist legislators restrict my 2nd Ammendment rights to the point of absurdity and then tax me more and more to pay for entitlement programs and regulate my life in every aspect. Or when lawyers and judges take said laws and regulations and make then even more restrictive and nightmarish. Or when... Er... wait a minute... I guess maybe after the next time I am assaulted, regulated, restricted, and represented. Or the next time. or the next time after that. Or maybe the next time after that. Or maybe I'll just wait until I see the bright flash and mushroom cloud.

When my dog tells me it's time. I mean, *seriously* tells me it's time, not just screwing around like he usually does. He usually waits 'til around 0330 - "Keith! Hurry! It's time! They're coming!" - but always falls out laughing before I can finish the detonation sequence. Yeah, real funny, Tucker. Stupid dog.

I think it will start with some unexpected event, so unthinkable, so remote, that it would signify the unravelling of society as we know it. Like a meteor crashing into one of the oceans, or Mount Everest erupting in a cataclysmic geological belch, or someone as clean-living as Glen Campbell getting arrested, uh oh...

It has already started, having to register your assault weapons in California. Homeland security(the way around our constitution). It's all bad.

Reminded me of a quote from Scott Adams, creator of the 'Dilbert' comic strip. When asked what he planned to do for Y2K he said: "I plan to hoard guns and ammo instead of food and money so that I can take all the food and money I want from the people who don't quite grasp the collapse of society concept"

Last week during the wind storms, our power went out for about 12 hours. I was just about to get medieval on the neighbors, eyeing up anything they had that I might need, when the lights came on. So I guess I'm not too far from my SHTF scenario.

I think when people actually don't move from wherever they are located. When people's fears overwhelm their sense of curiousity, its SHTF in my book. I'm just the dumbass that will run to the SHTF triggering event. Well, atleast last time.
