Also survival training, weapons training, maybe take a basic mechanic course, the list goes on...
    I totally agree! I held up my hand to take OFA 2 when none of my co-workers wanted to. Within a month of completion I saved a co-workers life with knowledge I wouldn't have had without the course.

    Just along this line, and since I'm always pushing the idea, joining the local volunteer dept provides you with free training(initial medical training, plus the practice training within the fd) and first hand knowledge of emergency plans for the area.
    You can go from a position of waiting things out to actively helping the community at such times.

    Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty ó and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. - H.L. Mencken

    Sort of like Trump's grand-daddy who made his fortune running a bar and brothel in the Yukon.
