SHTF situations rarely go as we want them to. No matter how much we prepare, we can never truly predict what's going to happen, and sometimes situations are too tough for us to overcome.

Of course, we try to do our best and do what we can to be prepared, but nothing is set in stone. Usually, what we've prepared with and the gear we've got with us is enough to combat any threats out there, from terrorists to rioters, as those are the most dangerous threats.
