If you have recently picked up a firearm to protect yourself from the coming mess, but you can not get sufficient ammunition to learn to use it, I would recommend that you look into laser practice ammo. While it is far from perfect, and does not get you used to the kick and noise of your weapon, it will allow you to make the thousands of trigger pulls at a target that will make it so that you can handle your weapon and hit what you are shooting at. In normal times, these things can save you hundreds of dollars.
@DaveRubin - PLease consider a sane expert who can give us practical advice on how to prepare for civil unrest as a guest.
Dumped Amazon Prime this morning. Downloaded previously purchased e-books so I wouldn't leave anything behind. Confirmed I can open them off-line on a backup tablet. One small step. Now if only I could buy a Joseph Stealin' t-shirt like I saw on locals...
