anything in a drugstore. My idea was exactly that, when the economy crashes, rob every drugstore/pharmacy in town. People can't live without their meds.

that's just great.. the economical world crashes, our society as a whole may be destroyed (which i take immense pleasure in thinking) and you want to force people to buy their life saving meds at black market prices!

and people question why i despise humanity...

i hope you need something life saving some day.. and someone puts a nice dollar sign on that very item...

one thing to be having fun with the superfluous goods and commodities.. but life saving meds? what a jerk.. glad i am not relying on you in any way shape or form...

.22 long rifle and 12 gauge shotgun shells

The .22's are still fairly cheap, but they'll be almost priceless when nobody can get them anymore.

And all the cigarettes you can afford. Smoking will come back in style big time when the telescreen goes blank and there's nothing to stare at, and no reason to want to live to be 100 years old.

Be careful heading to that drugstore. Every junkie around will be in there ready to fight to the death for his favorite treat, not to mention the loonies trying to stock up on prozac.

And for you, buy these two books.

Where There is No Doctor, and Where There Is No Dentist

You can download them for free here, but when your computer doesn't work anymore you won't be able to make use of them.

Actual printed books, on the other hand, stil work when the power goes out.

Shrunken heads of elected officials/corrupt politicians will become great novelty items..

for barter you may try to get these supplies.

whiskey, ammo, water, toilet paper, 10,000 cans of vienna sausages they will be a big time item, easy to carry and trade for other goods.LOL

If the economy crashes so will the Black market, most of these things will not be on anyone's mind. All that will matter is food, water, shelter and Survival.
Nobody will pay for stuff, it will be a fight though, just to keep what you do have.

If a family member of mine NEEDED something to survive, then I would find a way to pay for it.

You may be paid in eggs or potatoes, but I would find a way.

I agree having a stash of antibiotics is a good idea. It is safer to get them now that fight through the raiders to get them later. Apollo had a thread on this subject:

Thread: Things that Make You Go Hmmmmm.. Amoxicillin on Ebay?

Get what you think you will need & store in a cool, dry place.

Check out Patriot Nurse's advice on antibiotics before you choose which to buy:



Edit: Oh, and stop thinking about taking advantage of people. Stock to provide for your family; do you really want to risk your life to loot & raid?
