So here’s an interesting topic that I almost never hear preppers discussing: How do you deal with unwanted traffic to your street or neighborhood during a long-term grid-down scenario?

Imagine you and some neighbors live in a cul-de-sac and are all hunkering down, trying to ride out the disaster until help arrives or things return to normal. You want to make sure that gangs of looters don’t come driving down your street, looking for houses to rob. ..................

Sounds like a lot of work in a survival scenario, where the hell. Will you get the chainsaw and tools to cut down trees and dig trenches??

Best deterrent is hot lead if you have a gun or neegan their ass

Yes of course 

It's a well known fact that Most people run towards gunfire not away from it.

And everyone knows that in a survival scenario, gunfire = friendly.

Good luck with that!

What !?!?

A mob of 300-500 looters,?? that's not how looting works. 

Looters don't tend to cooperate or organize like that,there may be 500 in a riot/looting fest but it will be small groups or individuals. 

Realistically it will be a small group of around 3 - 8 men, probably known to each other that you will have to deal with.

Its a total myth that silencers reduce the sound made by a gunshot to a barely audible ' putff '. They just help prevent a serious gun user from losing their hearing in old age.

Your post makes no sense, we live in the UK, its a lot easier to own a chainsaw than a firearm.

9 Ways To Stop Looters From Driving Down Your Street Empty Gunshots

Post  nicko on Sun Feb 03, 2019 8:50 am

Silencers, or Sound Suppressers to use the correct term,  are so good today that the only sound you can hear is of the reciprocating bolt loading the next round !

Suppresors reduce the decibel level of the shot, it doesn't make it silent but it does  Make it more quiet. 

At extreme range you would hear an unsupressed rifle but might not hear one with a suppressor hence they would be unlikely to attract unwanted attention

Type of ammo used can also further reduce the sound signature to pretty much silent. 

Subsonic ammo will do this
