    Quite honestly though, the EMP stuff doesn't worry me. I have no doubts it is possible. What is more PROBABLE though, is an even bigger financial crash that what we saw before. That's why Argentina interests me.

    I loved Harry in the 80's growing up. Grandpa hated him with a passion. He was a huge Jack Brickhouse fan, and I guess when Harry stepped in after having called Cards and White Sox games, he just couldn't bring himself to like the guy. Complained about him always being drunk when he came back for the 7th inning off the radio. Of course, he did it sipping on his 2nd glass of bourbon.

    Game 5 of the '84 NLCS is the only time I ever saw grandpa shed a year.

    I just finished this book and all I can say is WOW! I found it online as a PDF and read it in a few days. The scenario of the attack is so easily doable that it will get you to thinking real quick. Knowing that there is missing Nuclear material from when Russia broke apart and the fact that there are some extremely well funded Terrorist groups out there that would do anything to bring America down, I could see it becoming a reality. Korea needs some money and hates us, would they sell some Nukes?It is an easy,quick read and I highly recommend it.

    To be honest I'm not sure I ever finished it. Same as Chris Kyle's book, he didn't exactly know how to wrap things up. All the good stuff was in the beginning and I lost interest towards the end.

    If you like this kind of stuff, read "The Road", then watch the movie adaptation. I think it is a much better character study in terms of literature content.

    I have seen "The Road" and thought it was very realistic but never have read it. I usually only get to read during the Winter months but all this rain we have had lately gave me a chance to read "One second after". I already have 4-5 books lined up for this winter sitting by my chair.

    You might need more than 38 shells to get through such an event, at least get a whole box.:eagerness:

    That is if the current and following administrations allow us to possess firearms, not to mention the ammo shortages, that we have already had. Keep dissagreeing about terrible things happening, thats what a lot of folks in Europe , and Asia did in the 1930's, how did that turn out ? 80 million people died.

    Who is disagreeing, we will never know how something will play out. I am not to worried about whether or not unckle sucker will let me keep my firearms, even those in a ultra liberal state as Connecticut stood firm on the AR regestration even though they would be labled felons.......that did not go very well for the state so far, and I would expect the same across the country. Personaly, I will not ever worry about ammo shortages again, I have enough for any Zombie fest and a small war. Those 535 clowns on the hill scare me more than a rag head in a pickup truck on the other end of the globe, they have caused more terrible things to happen to this country than anyone.

    I couldn't hit a zombie with a handgun round unless he was already in arm's reach. Personally, I'm stocking up on shotgun shells.
