Here's what happened in Eastern Europe after the Nazis were defeated.
After the Red Army took what they wanted,
armed gangs of hooligans went about prowling.
There was little police in large cities and none in the countryside, and no courts or criminal justice system.
NGOs like the YMCA and churches were the only social orders that were operational.
Firearms were handy for food gathering and as a last ditch defense against murderers/rapists/and other no-goodniks which presented an immediate and serious threat.

People made due with what they had and found strength in their faith, families and vocational guilds.
Nobody successfully "took on" the Red Army any more than they could the Nazis (other than the marquis) and hooligans were left to take what they wanted unless it offended moral sensibilities.
I know this from personal interviews conducted with survivors from that era.

Starter wives can be useful.

I'm psychically handicapped and old. IF the SHTF I'm staying put and will rely on .45 1911, 12 gauge Coach double barrel and my trusty old M-1 Garand. Not exotic but each very reliable and each very lethal.
