So you’ve survived and now you find yourself trying to stay alive in a hostile world filled with thugs, criminals, looters and raiders.  They are everywhere; so to increase your survival chances you must minimize any target indicators that you give off.

A target indicator is anything that will reveal your location to an enemy.  As you move throughout the post apocalyptic world; avoid at all costs giving off the following target indicators.

  • Avoid walking on creaky wooden floors or stepping on twigs or branches.  Noises you create are your enemies.
  • Avoid having your reflection showing in windows, mirrors and other shiny surfaces that can give away your position.
  • Avoid giving off shadows.
  • Avoid having your gun muzzle protrude from around a corner as it can lead to a gun grab by an enemy.
  • Avoid the sounds of your clothing scraping against a wall.
  • Avoid leaving a previously closed door open after you have entered a location and vice versa.  Small changes to a location can indicate that you have been there.
  • Avoid leaving the smell of tobacco in a location where that smell was not present before.
  • Avoid colognes and scented soaps as these smells can be easy for an enemy to track.
  • Avoid leaving footprints especially muddy footprints.  They are easily tracked.  
  • Avoid leaving palm prints on foggy windows.
  • Avoid talking when not necessary as sounds can travel a good distance revealing your position.
  • Avoid wearing gear and other equipment which rattles.  Your gear should be properly fastened to ensure it remains quiet; as you move about the terrain.
  • Avoid quick and jerky movements.  These movements are easy for an enemies eyes to detect.
  • Avoid creating strong cooking odors which can lead unwanted visitors to your location.

The Golden Horde refers to the mass exodus of the unprepared; from the cities to the suburbs and the rural areas after a disaster has ocurred.  They come looking for food, water and shelter whenever infrastructure has been decimated and they will loot anything and everything they can at your expense. 

If the power grid goes down for more than a few days; cities will become rapidly unlivable.  Without power; water and food distribution will cease, law and order will start to fail, crime, arson and full scale looting will begin and rape, assault and murders will escalate.

When people are cold, wet or hungry, for any length of time, it will peel away society’s civilized qualities and revert people back to an animal state; where survival at any cost becomes the norm.  You must make sure you are not in the path of the golden horde; but if you are, you must avoid detection, or if detected, be prepared to defend yourself.

As a prepper, you do not want to be a predator but you also do not want to be the prey.  In a survival situation consider all strangers as dangerous (stranger danger) and follow your pre-existing survival plan with modifications as needed.  Staying safe and alive is priority number one.

Violent attacks tend to occur in fringe areas such as deserted parking lots, alleyways, empty public bathrooms, stairwells, ATM kiosks, etc.  The most reliable, powerful and accurate pistol will not do a person any good in a self defense situation; if the event demands decisive immediate action to ensure your survival, and you fail to take the necessary action.  The right to be armed for self defense is a natural right and it is incomprehensible that any rational person would intentionally render themselves defenseless.

After a SHTF situation occurs; violent crime levels will increase.  Theft, burglary, kidnapping, rape, murder, etc., will be the new societal norm.  You will need to be properly armed with sufficient skills to defend your life.  Not following this rule will almost guarantee that you will be abused, robbed, raped, tortured and killed at some point.  Firearms are essential for self defense in any harsh environment for reasons of personal security.

Be aware of all that is around you as part of a 360 degree security plan.  Pay particular attention to anything that appears out of place.  Trust your instincts.  Your stomach has no ego so if  a situation makes you nervous or queasy there is a reason for it.  Determine the correct course of action based on a situation and follow through without hesitation.

Your first concern in a survival situation is to stay alive.  Speed is the key in any form of effective combat.  You must have the will and the capacity to act with severity and ferocity when faced with violence.  You are your own first line of self defense.  Avoid violence unless it is the only method avaialble to you to save your life.  Only foolish people escalate violence without considering where it might lead.  It’s okay to be polite and courteous but do not drop your guard for anyone.

When there is no longer a concern of just punishment from the law, things will change dramatically for the worse.  A determined armed defense will be necessary as hunger will force people to do things that they once thought were unimaginable before the SHTF.  You must avoid worry and panic.  Take preparedness action now to make sure you have the best available living conditions for later.

You must stay optimistic as ingenuity will evolve by necessity.  Learn to survive, adapt and overcome.  Always maintain an unfair advantage in your favor and avoid people with a welfare, entitlement state of mind.  Remember ability without character is worthless.  People with a weak character have a compulsion to maintain their pride; so they will be unreliable and prone to arguing and not following through with a plan.

Whenever you enter someplace new; look for escape routes, improvised weapons and cover just in case any dangerous scenarios occur which require you to escape or defend.  Never submit to threats; and never allow an attacker to isolate you in a vehicle or an abandoned building.  If an attacker produces bindings such as a rope, cord, duct tape, zip ties, wire or handcuffs, you must not under any circumstances allow yourself to become incapacitated.

You must learn to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.  If you get into a vehicle; make sure the door will open from the inside before closing it, as some unscrupulous people deliberately disable the inside door handle making it non operational.  Make yourself a hard target; meaning that your actions and behaviors should present such a hazard to a criminal that they will bypass you in search of an easier target.  Mentally prepare yourself to win a violent confrontation at all costs.  You must be willing, ready and able to incapacitate a threat if neccessary.

Be alert for predatory danger signs that usually signal an increased probability of attack.  These signs include excessive or prolonged eye contact; people who approach you deliberately or move with you as you move; predatory movements such as circling, splitting up, or trying to get behind you and people who try and herd you towards a low visibility, isolated ambush point.

Other signs include the use of distractions such as someone asking for directions, or for a light, or physically bumping into you; people who quickly enter your personal space; people who are deliberately following you and people who wear inappropriate clothes such as a heavy jacket in warm weather which can conceal a blunt force weapon.

Pay attention to your surroundings (situational awareness).  If something seems unusual, start to increase your defensive posture.  Your behaviors and actions should signal to a predator that you would be a hard target and that you pose such a hazard to them, that they will look elsewhere for an easier target.

Avoid dangerous people and dangerous situations.  If attacked you must be mentally prepared to incapacitate your attacker and win at all costs.  Your mindset and attitude can significantly effect the outcome.

You must be willing to defend yourself and your family against anyone who would try to harm them.  Remember that not everyone out there is a hardworking, law abiding patriot.  There are predators out there who have no regard for your life, your families life, or your possessions.  They will not show you or your family any mercy so do not expect any and do not give any.

A weapon in the hands of a coward is useless.  You must be mentally prepared to use your skills in a defensive situation.  You have a right and a responsibility to protect yourself against an attack.  Practice situational awareness and avoidance; know your escape routes and maintain physical boundries as well as using verbal diffusion whenever appropriate.

Most threats to your home and family will come from close range.  If your enemy is within range than so are you.  Never turn your back on an adversary.  Maintain a survivors attitude by doing whatever it takes to survive.  Refuse to become a victim and never ever give up.

The ability for law abiding citizens to be safe and secure in their own homes is dwindling every day.  The following shows why it is important for people to be prepared with the skills, gear, training, techniques and mindset to be able to defend themselves.

  • Approximately 1 out of every 5 homes in the USA will be broken into. 
  • Everyday approximately 5,000 home invasions occur in the USA.
  • Aggravated Assault is the most common violent crime reported in the USA. 
  • Larceny – Theft is the most common property crime in the USA. 
  • Approximately 60% of all rapes occur in the victims home in the USA.

You need to be prepared when predators strike.  You need to develop  workable, reliable responses to a wide variety of defensive scenarios.  You need to pay attention to your surroundings; if things go bump in the night, your solid, well thought out defensive plan should be put into action. 

Self protection is your right and your responsibility.  You need to prepare your home as much as possible against a security breach.  In home defense situations, your attackers can be incredibly violent human beings.  Police response times can vary from place to place; will it take 4 minutes or 40 minutes for them to arrive? 

Maintain a confident, self assured mindset that allows you to take action based on preparation and reason.  If you haven’t prepared or thought about a home invasion then you will be caught off guard.  Fortify your home, control your emotions and always be prepared.
