Greg, if I may be so forward, a stark difference exist between worst case and severe probable case. I disaster could affect an immediate, short term or long term time span. Most disasters that we have faced have only had grave immediate effects. Superstorm Sandy did great damage, yet, most effected returned to a managable point withing a few weeks. If you live in New York City, today food is available at a reasonable (if NY ever has a reasonable food price) price. In order to have a disaster where the immediate effect of no food or potable water becomes a long term issue, it would almost have to be a nationwide disaster. Prior to 105,000 hungry and disoriented victims desend on your place Greg, like an old zombie movie, they will have expendended all food supplies within their immediate reach, much of it will likely be contaminated, anyhow. This means that counting the intitial casualties from the disaster, plus those who were added by infections and other delayed effects (such as lack of on going treatment for preexisting conditions, Diabetics etc), plus those who because of lack of water, plus those who contract illness due to unsanitary conditions, we can now add those who died of food borne pathogens. Basically, most of that 105,000 semi zombies from the old black and white movie. will have died off long before reaching Greg's place. On the down side, however, the remenant 500 that actually hobbled their last ounce of strength to get to your mega fortress are most likely carrying diseases that are highly contagious. So while you may easily lay them usunder with the chain fed machine gun that all of us republicans keep under our beds, you had better quickly don your tyvek suit and OBA and proceed to burn the corpses, before your family and friends start dying of some ancient Egyptian plaque.

Greg, if you are married to the numbers that you gave, however, you could hurl out a tiny amount of food at the crowd of 105,000. They will fight like animals for it killing each other. You would only have to shoot the ones left afterwards.
