I might "see" ya on the trout stream, but at a distance.  :o  I'm fishing by myself presently. No panic here, just being careful. My wife has a severely weakened immune system due to a neurological disease, and I'm an old fart. Trying to keep that shit out of my house if possible.
As far as guns and ammo goes, I have enough of both. I ain't expecting a Zombie Apocalypse.

I am guilty of "stocking up", "hoarding" – whatever you call it.  Chew and pipe tobacco are my items of stockpiling.   It would be nice if I had access to some weed.  Perfect time for indulging.  I've been eating ramps daily; combine the odorous me with the social distance/virus protocol and you would have the perfect storm for safely remaining baked.  No authority in their correct mind would approach you.  They would likely not arrest you --- don't want anymore jailbirds.  And if they did write you up, your case would not come before the judge for months, maybe years, and hell, we might not be around then anyway.

I bought a modest amount of ammo for the .308. between the shotguns and the .22, I'm good.I've got enough deer in the 'hood and fish in the streams to keep us in protein if need be. We planted a mess of lettuce and spinach on Sunday. The trick will be trying to keep a paycheck showing up as things grind to a halt.

Strategic preparation should not be mistaken for dumb hoarding.  Hoarding milk and bread is beyond dumb.

Phil, I never left the land.  I took subsistance gardening inside the city limits. I suspect scarcity will show itself soon, then will come inflation.

I have no faith the US will emerge from this episode with any grace unless a vaccine becomes available within a month.  The nation is flush with hubris and oblivion, and will not learn from the Koreans. Our lack of focus has already doomed us.  This could get worse than WWII. The last war fought on our soil was the Civil War. There has never been a time where people simmply could not be productive due to an internal existential threat in the last !00 years.

The US does not behave like a first world country, or the leader of the free world.

People are still putting chew in their mouth while filling up with gas along the interstate.   People are still coughing on each other.  Some still think this is a political conspiracy. We're doomed.

I have had people close to me say they believe this virus was China's way of making Trump lose the election because this virus will kill a lot of the old people that vote for Trump. It was one of those moments where you laugh at the statement and then slowly stop laughing when you notice they are being serious. . . . .

I wear a glove while I'm pumping gas beside the interstate, then take it off and put the chew in my mouth. :)

Math is a bitch.

.06 % of the general population in Italy are infected with covid 19.

8.9 % of the docs in Italy are infected

Just heard of a possible silver lining from our global virus conundrum.  Decreased human daily activity = positive influence on climate change.
