Doomsday Preppers Week 4: Fish and Firepower

John Adrain is an inventor living on a cliff's edge in the Pacific Northwest. He has a variety of fears, including nuclear fallout, natural disasters, and biological terrorist attacks. He's worried about a lot.

Now, as much as I like teasing our preppers/victims each week, Mr. Adrain addresses something at the very beginning of his segment that has been bugging me for two bleeping years.

I don't quite understand bugging out. Where are you going to bug out to? Because if there was some sort of a panic, people think they're just going to get onto the freeway and drive somewhere? I think there's a lot of problems with that. You're better off being prepared where you are.

On behalf of sane people everywhere, thank you, Mr. Adrain, for pointing out the common-sense idea that so many people on this show just don't seem to grasp.

Adrain is serious about his home-defense prepping. Did I mention he lives in a house perched on a cliff? Natural geological defense worked against the rampaging hordes, and his home takes advantage of natural terrain. While he didn't go for a moat, he did splurge on a military base-security-grade steel gate that will stop a 10-ton vehicle going (if I heard the narrator correctly) 50 MPH.

Then he tickled this gunnie's heart.

On the chance that a vehicle does breach the perimeter, Adrain wants a weapon that will penetrate the engine block  or passenger compartment with equal ease. His cartridge of choice is the .50 Beowulf, a cartridge yours truly has fired on multiple occasions both in the recommended semi-auto and the absurdly entertaining full-auto, as shown on the next page.
