One sniper can keep a family pinned down to where nothing gets done. How many are you going to need to flush him out and still get daily activities accomplished and keep the compound secure from his buddies ? what is the smallest soze tribe you figure you need to hold your position ?

I haven't really thought about this a whole lot. Too few and you can't get jobs done, too many and i'd be concerned about people getting along and possible dissent. I'll pull the number 5 out and see what others chime in with.

A light fire team (3-5) ought to be enough. I'd try to ply the sniper with liquor first. I also try to look like I'm not worth a bullet. (It worked for me as a grunt in VN.)

I recall ferfal ... Bosnia ... talking about several families banding together on same street, and need for 24/7 sentries, scavengers, traders, snipers, cooks, medical, repair. As I recall he talked about making it look unappealing, as Cliph noted, even to the point of dragging dead bodies onto the property. It seemed like a lot of different tasks were needed 24/7 and he never really spoke of a size unit needed to accomplish the job. Snipers were the biggest problem during the day, was his thought, as I recall. That means hunkering down during the day and collecting food, repairs/modifications to home compound and bartering trade goods as night time activities. No matter how remote one thinks they are, they will have vistors sooner, or later I'm thinking.

I'm always surprised people don't pay more attention to real-world scenarios in parts of the world where SHTF scenarios are/have happened. Lots of excellent info.
