Gym, ipsc comps, hiking, durable goods, restaurant. I bore you yet? Foundations of a military force. But you guys gotta be sus and try to gobble that fed cock with your ass by trying to make militias happen. It's not happening. Feds ruined that for you and if you don't stop sperging about it and ADAPT, you're going to keep talking hypotheticals instead of going out there and having fun.
Actually doing things, practicing things... it's fun. You don't have to do it with the same group of friends. Expand your friendship circle. It's way better than jerking off about shtf and vets coming to rescue "the people".
That sounded harsh, I didn't mean to offend you. Just saying, you can disagree, it's cool. It's just my opinion, you can think I'm wrong. I don't think I'm "sus". I think this is the future of the citizen. You're thinking clint at thunder ranch (the vet) gonna turn you into the best you can be when all you need is trexarms (the civ) to show you how to grip your glock and which flavor of crayon tastes best.
If you find a vet with nothing to lose, do yourself and them a favor, and just go fishing or something with them.
