    If I run out of ammo, it will be from defending, not hunting. I couldn't eat that many animals.

    same here. People would probably gather in groups.. strength in numbers. that could eat up some ammo even for hunting.
    I bet my trapping skills would get a bit better also..

    Gotta get together sometime for some chapulines and cerveza. And if there's a plague of locusts, I will try to remember to harvest them.

    there are so many combinations of household products that make explosives, or poisons, or toxins, or just plain old nasty stuff, that you might not need that much ammo to deter the crowds. A lil bleach, a lil ammonia, couple glass jars....too easy.

    Transportation is the 800 LB gorilla in the room,and there are alternatives getting off to a slow start. We need an apollo project to jump start alternatives. LNG is available with a little planning, and its about $1 a gallon.
