You Had Plenty Of Chances To Prepare For Yourself. You Can’t Come To My Place When SHTF

Prepare

In the following article Glen of 299Days.com covers an issue that is very dear to most preppers – what to do when neighbors, friends and family come knocking. With limited resources available we’re all going to have to make tough decisions. Like many of us, Glen plans on helping those truly in need. But what about those who refused to see the warning signs and stuck their head in the sand, perhaps even lambasted you for your extreme ideas and theories? Instead of being frugal and preparing, they focused their efforts on entertainment and good times.

But when the good times end, they will come to you for help. What will you do when they show up at your front door?


Most preppers or survivalists have thought about this topic and while some have an idea or plan of what they would do, it is hard to really say until you are in the thick of it. Part of preparing is having the skills and plan to deal with the ugly side of humanity who will be knocking on your door. Even if you have 100% solid OPSEC and there isn’t another soul who knows about your 6 month supply of necessities, they will come knocking. Even if you are like us and aren’t ‘preppers’ per se but lean more on the side of homesteading, they will come knocking. Or just break your door in. Are you ready for that?

(This post is something you can send to your friends or print out and hand to them when SHTF.)

Dear Friend:

I love my friends, but I will shoot you if I have to.  I’m serious.  Here’s why.

I tried to persuade you to prepare for what’s coming and, in the process, revealed that to you that I’m preparing.  You realized that I have food, guns, etc., and ended up saying, half kidding but half serious, “I’ll come to your place when SHTF.”

Word of the day: Prepare! And do it the old fashion way, like our fore-fathers did it and succeed long before us, because what lies ahead of us will require all the help we can get. Watch this video and learn the 3 skills that ensured our ancestors survival in hard times of  famine and war.

No you won’t.  I will shoot you.  If you threaten me and my family, I will use force to defend against any threat.  And showing up at my place hungry and unprepared is a threat to me.  You will eat my food and use up my medical supplies, generator, firewood, etc.  That’s less of these life-saving things for me and my family.  That’s a threat.

Is this greed on my part?  No.  I will take care of the truly needy – those who cannot take care of themselves.  But you are different.  Very different.  You had plenty of chances to prepare for yourself.

But what did you do?  You spent the weekends watching football, went on expensive vacations, and never made your spouse mad at you with your “crazy” ideas that something bad was happening.  You didn’t do shit because… you would just come to my place.  Problem solved, right?  You didn’t need to spend time, money, and create domestic strife because I did that all for you.

Not.  Why should I spend my time, money, and stress just so you can waltz into my place and live happily ever after?  I’m a nice guy, but – really? – I’m going to spend my (very limited) free time, disposable income, and domestic tranquility just so you can have a leisurely life and more material comforts pre-Collapse while I don’t?

Why do you think I will sacrifice enormous amounts of my time and money so you can enjoy yourself while I’m slaving away?  Would you assume you could come over and leave your broken car at my house?  That I would just spend thousands of dollars on parts and several weekends fixing it and then hand it over to you with a smile – just because I’m a “good guy”?  Would anyone expect that?

ste2

You do, apparently.  You actually expect to waltz over to my cabin and receive – with a smile – thousands of dollars of food and other supplies that took me all my weekends to acquire and store.

So, my grasshopper friend (as in the story of the grasshopper and the ant), here is your official warning: if your “plan” for your and your family’s safety is to come to my place, you’re wrong.  When you show up, I’ll ask you to leave.  When you don’t, I’ll point a gun in your face.  If you refuse to leave, I will shoot you.  You are a threat to me.

You had years of time and very clear warnings to get ready.  But you didn’t.  Hey, I love football but haven’t been able to watch a game in a few years; I’ve been fixing up the cabin, buying supplies, and training with the Team.  I spent a lot of money doing all these things so I haven’t gone on a long vacation in… forever.  I have had several difficult times with my wife because of all the prepping I’m doing; I could have easily done what you did, which is just say “Yes, dear” and not prepare because she didn’t want you to.

I hope this message jolted you.  There’s still some time.  Go prep.  Please understand that your plan cannot be “I’ll come to your place.”  I don’t want to shoot you.

  1. You Know You’re Not A Christian…

    Wow…not sure if you actually read my post. Your conclusions about my post are your…. assumptions. Did I say anything about “fair”? Yes, we walk the narrow way, but God also gave us a brain. If you are going to stand on a biblical idea, then stand on it all the way. If your position is “whoever seeks his life will lose it…” then don’t eat, don’t pay your bills, or go to the doctor.

    I will follow the WHOLE counsel of God…not just cherry pick.

  2. And preppers are not afraid, we are just prepared for any difficult times that we may endure in our lives. We do have faith! It is no different than someone studying to take an exam. They are preparing by studying for the exam. And I am not afraid to die because I know where I am going!

  3. Mat_25:40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

    You read comments below and this is WHAT is screwed with this country . It is selfish people who ONLY seem to care for themselves .
    They take everything on the internet as TRUTH . i used to be one of those

    Jesus Christ gave clear COMMAND NOT to labor for that which perishes did He NOT ?

    As for the “KJB” this man has NO OTHER KING but JESUS CHRIST .

    read the KJB Isa. 45:14 and you will SEE the FOLLY of MAN’s HANDS
    “there is”

    There is a CREATOR and a ONLY begotten Son of the Creator named Jesus Christ WHO TAKES care of ALL those who call upon His name

    You know Jesus Christ is AGAINST this country when people believe ALL the FEAR coming from preppers . Fear of not having enough , fear of death of body , fear of this , fear of that , fear of unknown .

    Last time i looked we walk by Faith NOT by sight , isn’t prepping sight .

    1. Calling upon the Lord and being a true Christian does not mean that people will not go through difficult times in our lives. The Lord gives us difficult times for a reason, which He only knows the reason. As for preppers being selfish, think again! I have been prepping for my entire family and close neighbors because they are too blind to see what is going on in our world today, but I cannot in good conscience just sit back and watch people die if I had enough food and water to share with them that would keep them alive.

  4. The Bible also says it is a fool who sees trouble ahead and does nothing! Also in Revelation it states that a loaf of bread will cost a weeks worth of wages in the end times. Read your KJV Bible people.

  5. AS A BELIEVER AND EX-MILITARY, I SOMETIMES SHARE THE SENTIMENTS OF KAPANO OF WAITING & WAITING, AND LISTENING TO QUAYLE, HODGES, HAVENS, JASON A, DABOO 77, ETC, AND NOTHING HAPPENING ON MY TIMELINE. BUT A DAY OF THE LORD’S IS A 1000 YRS. FOR MAN, WE ARE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING THE PROPHECY OF II PETER 3:4 AND KAPANO IS JUST ANOTHER SCOFFER OF THE LAST DAYS. REMEMBER THE DAY OF THE LORD WILL COME AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT, NOT WITH AN APPOINTMENT. US TRUE BELIEVERS ARE THE REMNANT AND WILL PROVIDE FOR OUR LOVE ONES AND CHURCH FAMILY. BUT ULTIMATELY, RELY ON GOD’S PROVISIONS. IF HE SUPPLIED MOSES AND THE ISRAELITE’S (EXODUS) FOR 40 YRS WITH MANNA, QUAIL, WATER & SANDALS THAT NEVER WORE OUT ETC. HE WILL SURELY PROVIDE FOR HIS TRUE CHILDREN. SATAN IS THE LORD OF THIS WORLD (II COR. 4:4) MUCH LIKE JOB, THE TRUE TEST OF FAITH IS THE UNDYING RELATIONSHIP WITH CHRIST AND OBEDIENCE. WE ARE NOT ROBOTS GOD CREATED US WITH A SOUL (MIND, WILL EMOTIONS) BUT ULTIMATELY YOU HAVE FREE WILL TO FOLLOW HIM, AND ASK FOR THE GIFT OF SALVATION. HE ULTIMATELY LOVES ALL HIS CREATION, BUT IT’S OUR CHOICE TO LOVE BACK. WHAT WE ARE EXPERIENCING NOW ARE THE BIRTH PANGS HEADING INTO JUDGMENT DAY. IF GOD DOESN’T JUDGE AMERICA, HE OWES SODOM & GOMORRAH AND APOLOGY!! , WITH ALL THE TRILLIONS SPENT SINCE 1985 WITH THE UNDERGROUND CITIES OF THE ELITISTS, HOW MUCH LONGER WILL THEY LIVE? 30 DAYS ? SOONER OR LATER YOU MUST COME UP !!

    1. And WE WILL BEWAITING FOR THOSE SCUM. THEY WILL DEEPLY REGRET EVERY LAST THING THEY DID TO HARM THE CITIZENS OF THIS WORLD. MIF I am still alive and can participate, I will burn them alive.

  6. Yes, for those that foolishly were warned but did not prepare I have no heart for you. But the author is right, for those that cannot I will do my best to help.

    There is no excuse and we are told to be wise and observe the ant which has no leader but works to prepare himself for Winter without being told.

  7. DAVE,,,,
    read your bible… God will protect his own. Yes God did say he will provide and protect his own, but he did not say he will throw it in the nest.

  8. gees, look at all the Bernie Sanders supporters posting here and then using the bible to back up their argument…. Folks READ YOUR FRIGGING BIBLES. He who does not provide for his family is not of the faith and is an infidel. Can’t be made any clearer. Did Joseph store enough FOOD for 7 years as God told him a famine was coming? GOD is telling you RIGHT NOW. If you don’t make the sacrifice to take care of your self and your family, YOU will deserve exactly what you get. DEAD.

  9. Well! If that’s they way it is, I simply won’t give you a chance, we can all be mad max! Seriously, the truth is when it happens, it’s not going to be like you think! SHTF is the tribulation. You will mostly be in hiding from those who want to kill you! That’s if you are one of the few lucky enough to have survived! And, at that time, you can act like satan, or like a child of God!

  10. Gobbketgook: I agree, the first comment was stupid. If a man doesn’t provide for his family he is worse than an infidel and slackers won’t make it when shft. Why would anyone go around telling others what they are doing or stashing anyway? Only a fool would go around bragging on what they stash away, they deserve to be raided by the bad guys for being stupid. Bartering would be in order with those you already know and trust. Strangers who try to push their way in, will be shot. The first comment person may also have unlimited resources, but he will still end up being killed. you can’t fix stupid.

  11. IF you live in the USA,you’d better be more then ready,THE US MILITARY,and the POLICE GANGS have plans to wipe you out,poison gas,demons they created in their underground labs,and Evil beings you can’t even imagine,this will be the LAST show down in history,the people of the LORD against the government of SATAN and his minions,AMERICANS have no clue just how evil you have allowed the US GOVERNMENT to become,BUT YOUR ABOUT TO FIND OUT….SO do not be afraid to call on the LORD for help,he knows what your going to be up against,AND YOU WILL NOT SURVIVE without his help,REMEMBER YOU WERE WARNED………..

    1. I am so incredibly sick and disgusted by seeing your pissy postings around these sites.
      Go to hell,Arizona. Go die already. Keep yoir angst and your garbage crap to yourself..
      You are NOT one of the chosen ones. You are an artohant HATER of the worst kind. You roll in ecstacy at the thought of your fellow humans being killed and suffering.
      It is obvious.
      Do NOT argue with me either……..I have an advanced degree in all things of the mind…..I KNOW YOU AND EXACTLY WHO AND WHAT YOU ARE.

  12. The great test that God may send us is the opportunity to do good in difficult times. The hardest things to descern is to know when to justifiably hurt others. there will be many opportunities to do good but also evil. Our souls are at stake. Our prep items will come and go, can be stolen or destroyed when least expected but our good deeds and the evil we have done, and the good we’ve failed to do will go with us to our Judgement Day.

  13. Still waiting for shtf……..and waiting and waiting…..I stopped prepping years ago after I figured out all this fear mongering is bs….the US gov is no where bog enough to handle 300+ million americans.. they can’t even handle bridges and highways, much less healthcare bs….if it were to happen, which like the niburu crap, probably wont…cuz, what will all you guys do when Obama the commie is out? You will move to the next guy and claim he will bring Marshall law…Steve quayle has been saying this stuff for 40 years…and still waiting…personally, I wish armeggedon would come…I hate this planet…God screwed up, and let satan run free…but then again…why would you create a being that will destroy…hmmmmmm

    1. Also, I have a national guard armory up the road, in a sleep southern town…FREE GEAR….our local town police chief quit last September, why? Because he believed all the bs that the economy would crash in September…..

  14. To You know You’re Not A Christian When…

    That’s an unfair blanket statement…try looking at it this way.

    Your spouse has extremely painful medical conditions and is on pain meds which barely allow any quality of life. Even so, spouse is limiting pains meds to save a small stash for the future. It is a painful sacrifice, yet necessary.

    Would you then take your spouse’s saved medication and give it to the neighbor who came to the door because they were going thru withdrawal when SHTF and give it away. You’ve been trying to tell neighbor to stash their own meds, but they just wanted to live the “high” life and didn’t listen. No, you wouldn’t. But you’d prolly help someone with those very same meds in an emergency.

    There is a difference in helping those in NEED and helping those in “lazy want.”
    It’s called discernment. And we’ll need God’s help with that. These are the thoughts that keep many Christians up at night.

    1. The sermon on the mount was a blanket statement…

      To follow Jesus you have to deny yourself…

      That is why He Called It A NARROW way.

      Whoever seeks his life will lose it.

      And BTW Jesus is just and good but He and many of His genuine followers were murdered… pretty sure if you are looking for “fair” you are following the wrong God

    2. Those who have extremely painful medical conditions MUST stock up on CBD oil now.
      It is made from hemp…..not pot.
      Ot is legal because it does not contain any THC.
      Get it now.
      Start using it now.
      Wean yourself off the RX drugs but keep on filling the prescription. That way you will have powerful, short term pain meds for a real crisis condition.

  15. Amos 8:11 – the famine in the end times is not for bread, but for hearing the Word of the LORD. So, with that being said, why fret over food and drink? It’s fine to put some things away, but to assume you can hold down the fort, and keep your stuff is foolish. When people come for your food, it will most likely be a mob of people rushing into your abode.

  16. I have had people say the same thing to me, my answer has alway been NO and if you won’t leave when I tell you you will be shot…and I mean it, we have giving up many thing to get prepared wile these people spent there money on sports, vacations, boats, and so forth all the wile telling me I’m crazy so yes I will shoot anyone who would try to take my supplies or refuse to leave.

  17. Interesting article. Those are my sentiments exactly. I have already informed my better-half that if TSHTF, I will have to make unpopular decisions about his large extended family, most of which do not own weapons nor are able to stand their ground. Some know of my prepping, but when the chips are down I won’t compromise the small group of relatives we have offered to try and keep alive during the conflagration.

    If you don’t have scavengers and hunters in your “Self Organized Collectives”, you need to bring some in, as it will be those individuals who will help keep your SOC fed and clothed. As captain of your ship, you must maintain control regardless of the whiners and those wanting to take more than they give. Even close relatives will try and wheedle their way into the decisions making processes on your ship. Until all the members of yous SOC are willing to abide by the rules you, (as the leader) have set up within your new Democratic ship, you must maintain control.

    You must also not hesitate to shoot if anyone tries to take over or destabilize your ship. Each new member you bring into your SOC must understand the rules you have laid down. If they don’t like your rules, show them the door, and do not feel guilty for this will come down to SELF PRESERVATION !!!

    1. I feel the same way…l also know that any one you turn away alive may be so angry with you that they will expose you and try to take what you have to get ‘even’ with you.
