    Survival Shop Reports Jump In Sales To People Preparing For “Possible Collapse”

    WEBSTER GROVES, MO (KMOX) - A chain of three stores that sells survival food and gear reports a jump in sales to people who are getting prepared for the “possible collapse” of society.

    “We had to order fifty cases of the meals ready to eat to keep up with the demand in the past three months,” said manager Steve Dorsey at Uncle Sam’s Safari Outfitters Inc. in Webster Groves. “That’s not normal. Usually we sell 20 to 30 cases in a whole year.”

    Dorsey says business has been brisk since the spring uprisings in the middle east, as customers share concerns about political uprisings, the world economy and the future of the United States.

    “I’ve had people in here that are very wealthy and they’ve spent thousands of dollars just on backpacks that they fill with survival gear, one for each person of their family,” Dorsey said, “And something where they can just grab a bag and get out of Dodge.”

    Dorsey says some customers talk of stocking up on freeze-dried meals for the home, while others confide they are stashing supplies at a remote location away from the city where they would go in an emergency.

    “There are people that have property and they’ve set up different things they’re building to protect themselves like towers they can stand up and watch,” Dorsey said, “There’s a lot of people I’m dealing with who buy all kinds of stuff because they have like twenty or thirty people going in on this together and they’re all going to go to this one spot if something like this happens.”

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Rats! You made me log on to post, you beast! :)

    Don't know what to think of the article, but it did put me in mind of the book "One Second After" by William R. Forstchen, which I read sometime last year. All about what would happen if the US was affected by an EMP attack.

    And yes, while I know it was a fictional story, it was based on fact as to what the results of an attack would be.

    Scary read indeed. :eek:
