Welcome to Appalachia! This is very sad yet uplifting at the same time. This is what real poverty looks like. These white families have no subsidized vouchers to pay for modern Central Air with which to heat their homes in the dead of winter paid for by tax payers. Many of these people live with NO power or running water, and use stoves that burn wood or coal for heat. If these families don’t cut wood then they don’t have heat. And section 8 housing is almost non existent in this area of the country.
Yet the uplifting part about this is that they are almost completely self sufficient hunting for their own food, and farming in order to support their families. And even though they are this poor, and have some of the worst education in the country, as of 2010 the violent crime rate for Appalachia was lower than the national violent crime rate average by 56.76%! They also are the only people to simply state their ethnicity as American on the United States census. These people are the salt of the earth and they are some of the kindest people you will ever meet. This is the land of my grandfathers. Think twice before you call them inbred white trash hillbillies.
Oh yeah and it also has some of the most beautiful natural scenery in America!
I always loved Appalachia and its people.

CAR-15 Survival Rifle
A simplified, lightened AR-15 developed for the US Air Force by Colt in the mid 1960s, officially designated the Colt Model 608. Intended for use by downed helicopter and aircrews, it was hoped that a CAR-15 would offer more fire-power to aircrews who had previously relied on pistol and revolvers. With a 10 inch barrel surrounded by a tubular stock and a shortened pistol grip and simplified telescopic stock the rifle could be broken down easily and stored in the aircraft until needed. They were often stowed with standard 20-round mags, they lacked the characteristic triangular shaped Bakelite barrel furniture and were fitted with a conical muzzle flash hider not seen on any other AR-15.
