My husband and I have differing ideas about the calamitous life to come, he is of the Mad Max mindset, I am of the slow painful step school...

I find it is the less socially connected (whether that be personality, social skills or social dislocation - such as new in town etc) that have the most fear and are most likely to resort to an arms race. The real issue is that if they know you have guns and they still want the diesel from your truck they will plan a far more aggressive attack for it. If you are going that route keep it quiet and simple.

Another thing to keep in mind as all good zombie hunters know is ammo resupply.... No point having an awsomely exotic weapon if you can't reload it.

Funny. Far more likely that you'll just be paid less for your work than before and things will keep costing more so you find yourselves in poverty and stuggling to live. That's the Great Depression, something we're all sliding into.

Good article about municipal bond defaults here in the USA. Picture the road upkeep that can be paid for when the city or county you live in just declared bankruptcy.
