This is something I just want to get out there as I recently got a email from a tv show asking for preppers. What I want to say is this "DON'T DO IT. IF YOU DO YOUR A IDIOT, YOU JUST TOLD THE WORLD WHERE YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU HAVE. AS WELL AS MAKING THE REST OF US PREPPERS LOOK LIKE CRAZIES WORRIED ABOUT THE END OF THE WORLD HAPPENING NEXT WEEK BECAUSE OF ONE SPECIFIC EVENT." Now that I got that out I just want everyone to take a second and think about it. Vault72 is helping a group of preppers to build a fortified position that will hopefully keep them safe, and I hope them the best. But if they do get onto Doomsday Preppers they had better be prepared to deal with the consequences of that action. With these shows there was hope among the the prepping community that they would cast a positive light on preppers. They didn't, they have done everything they could to make preppers look crazy and/or obsessed with the end of the world. Most of us don't think there is only one way for a disaster to cause the collapse of the world society as we know it know. But with these shows it is made to look like that's how we all believe. Doomsday preppers forced this upon the people that do their show as talked about by Christopher Nyerges.
So please, if your really looking at doing one of these shows be aware of the danger you are putting yourself and your family in. As well what it does to other preppers.
This is the email if you were wondering, I will not post the link to them though.
Orion Entertainment, the world’s leader in outdoor-adventure television, is currently casting for a new docu-reality television pilot that explores weapon-savvy Americans and their families. These regular and everyday citizens are armed and prepared for when the fabric of society unravels in the wake of any major cataclysmic event.
"The weapons preppers featured in the television pilot will be armed with the latest in firearms technology, ammunitions, night vision optics, vehicles and security systems. They believe their preparedness and armament is to ensure the safety of themselves and their loved ones for catastrophic events such as terrorist attacks, economic meltdowns, global pandemics and natural disasters.
Potential candidates would need to be available for approximately 4 days of filming and provide camera access for a full 360-view of their defensive strategies:
• On-camera interviews with preppers and their family and friends (when applicable). Need to hear of any past incidents and events that have shaped their mindset today. What motivates them now, and what are their biggest fears and thoughts on the future of the world?
• An “all-access tour” of their security items – firearms, ammo, knives, night vision, etc. What do they have, and more importantly, why?
• Access to test-firing weapons – our preppers will show our host and audiences what their firepower can do.
• A sneak-peak into their security and safety plans and strategies. What is the plan for an economic crisis? Tornados that wiped out the states power grids? A terrorist attack on U.S. soil?
• What is their training of real-world scenarios and situations to keep their skills up-to-date? The preppers and our host will run the drills.
• We want to see it all, hear it all and feel it all.
Orion Entertainment has a reputable and long standing relationship with the firearms and accessories industry as well as a proven track record in successful awareness and preparedness programming through the likes of our Don't Be a Victim series on Spike TV. We take the need for personal protection, preparedness and awareness very seriously and our end goal is to educate the public on this vital need. Our mission is to showcase the people that are smart and are prepared. This is their insurance policy, and they're on the right track to keeping themselves and their loved ones safe for when society unravels and for whatever the future may hold.
This is an exciting opportunity to explore the harsh realities of society today, told through the lives of the most armed people in America.
Together these American citizens – and their chilling motivations – establish the fundamental premise of this series: nothing matters if the society unravels and you can’t defend yourself, your family, and your survival cache.
