Who's laughing now ?
The short answer is - I AM.

I've been mocked and accused of being "paranoid", by many I know
for keeping 6+ months of provisions; food, water weapons, and other
provisions - just in case of (place SHTF disaster here).

Now, they're apologizing and wishing they had been more "forward -
looking", and asking me to sell them toilet paper. I have 50 rolls, and
I'm keeping them.

I have years of "just in case" money, no debt, my job is secure, and
(really) this "Covid-19 apocalypse" has no effect on me at all.

I knew one day my "prepping" would pay off, and that day is here.

I believe this will greatly change the attitudes of many in America
about "being prepared" and I (also) have a few hundred pounds of
silver, which, with the affect of the 4+ trillion $ "stimulus" should
be raising the value of silver (probably) to the sky, due to the lower
value of The Dollar...
If others opinions were this tough on you, I think you also need to get it together and sack up, brother. This is a gun board, not reddit. I'm guessing this is likely going to infuriate you but hopefully it ends up helping.

You don't need a thousand rolls of toilet paper. Just follow the teachings and advice of that tree hugger, singer Sheryl Crow. Sheryl Crow says to limit one square per sitting. Now, that is good thinking. If I ever meet the woman, I won't be shaking hands with her.

I can't watch Ned Beaty in a movie without thinking, "squeal like a pig". Same with Sheryl Crow. I see her and wonder if she has a nasty a**

I'm not a prepper.....yet other than not being able to have a few beers at my brewery with my friends, this "Covid-19 apocalypse" has had no effect on me either.

Just curious. $23T in debt hasn't caused rampant inflation. Why will $4T more?
Explain please....???

+1911 TejanoViejo, USMM, TRS, copper and others who've shared similar sentiments.

Speaks well of the class that firearm enthusiasts typically have. We don't go around laughing at and belittling others (well, other than those leftist Dems, and even then, only as push-back for their threats to dismantle Constitutional rights). Most of us try to be prepared for troubles, in part so as not to be a burden to others, but we don't see any need to go around trumpeting ourselves, then laughing at and belittling others. We're more inclined to care at least a little, oftentimes a lot, about others around us.

Wow aren’t you proud of yourself for acting like a complete jack ass! I do not prep and have had zero issues with food, toilet paper, or any other items I may need. Now I did invest $15,000 into a new home theater and it’s paying off in dividends! Makes the time fly by!
See, during times of peril, the American spirit causes us to come together and become stronger collectively more so than the threat! Proven time and time again throughout out our history!
Also, never even needed to use a weapon or a single bullet to defend myself. Why because there is no human threat. Also I did have to buy off brand toilet paper so I use to wipe the **** off my ass as I think of jack asses like you.

Just FYI 1 square is for pee only. Poop requires multiple squares. .
I know only because I asked my wife about how much she uses daily to ensure long term stock.

Everyone is feeling good about themselves now. Wait until the unemployment runs out. We have not seen anything yet. Then plans will really get tested.

I find it strange or very unusual that so many people would know you are a prepper. Wouldn't you want to keep something like this a closely held secret?

People here in the South end of Florida try to always be prepared. Hurricane Season is just around the corner which means most people had already stocked up with at least 2 weeks of food. Still haven't figured out why the run on toilet paper unless the people were stealing it from work before. And now had to buy their own. Our normal stock ranges from 36 to 72 rolls depending on when BJ's had it on sale.

There are people that talk the talk but when things gets really ugly, which it hasn't, these talkers fold pretty quickly.
These talkers brag about preparations and people listen. The real survivors now know of an easy source of supplies.

For the really hardcore (and/or $$$$s):

"This irreplaceable, former U.S. Army base, consisting of 575 private military-built, concrete and steel, all-risk bunkers, is now repurposed and affordably priced - ready to provide life-saving shelter for your entire family or group."

I've kept a moderate supply of stores for years myself. But if a neighbor comes over in need, I'm going to help them out.

And I've got plenty of ammo on hand, but I've never wanted to live in a world where I'd actually need to use it all.

We all have to die sometime. No ones going to live in this world forever.

Trust in Jesus & an eternal life in the kingdom.
Amen, brother. The situation we find ourselves in during this Easter season reminds us what Easter is all about. I pray for everyone confronting China's biological warfare virus. Everyone I know now calls this the CCP virus. God bless you all and God bless America. Stay vigilant my friends.
