    OPSEC...Don't come as you are...come as someone else....

    I predict a sudden interest in disguises:

    funny disguises - Google Search

    A Mel Gibson disguise might work! Just make sure that no one else is coming as Mel Gibson, that might be too much of of a give away.

    Be wary of some militant preppers...
    Could be a ploy to make a "Prepper" the next example for the govt..

    Just sayin

    I'd go but would be very noncommittal and fairly quiet playing the part of a 'new to survival' student rather than the 'been there, done that' survival expert.

    Local networking within a community can be of value later on.

    What gun shop? I had my 1919a4 built in Cleveland. I bet I know some of those folks involved as I was part of a group out of Madisonville at one point. Coker Creek too.

    Unfortunately, they don't know me as Melbo... The vetting process included some deep backgrounding by some of the more , er, connected to the intelligence community. Of course, this information was not made privy on the first date.
