Pat Brabble, The Mancave Prepper

"I'm preparing for the downfall of society through hyperinflation."
Producer's note from Nick Weissman: "We all have secrets. Pat Brabble’s just happens to be a 15” by 15” mancave stocked with over seventy weapons and enough ammo for a small army. As a former gun broker, Pat has access to all the benefits of a Class 3 gun dealer license. This license affords him the ownership of both semi-automatic and automatic weapons. I can tell you first hand: he knows how to use them.
When we arrived at the Brabble home, we found Pat and Lynette to be a considerate tight-knit couple. Thy are not shy about their prepping or their politics: they stepped up their prepping after the 2004 election, and denounce the current administration.
Pat and Lynette don’t drink, but in their secret barn they have over $1500 of alcohol. At first it seemed like a contradiction of their values, but Pat and Lynette consider it a matter of practicality. After the collapse they will use it for trade, disinfectant, fuel, and – as we saw when Pat lit up a Molotov cocktail -- even protection.
