get out and meet people. go to gun shows and talk to people you see there, hang out around your local hunting/gun stores, talk to your neighbors, friends, and coworkers. take professional prepper and tactical training; some of the instructors are sure to know of a group you can join.
some tips for starting out(these learned by hard experience):
if you join a militia's public online forum, assume it is just that: public. their views/beliefs are unlikely to line up exactly with everything they say on the forum. you have to earn their trust, and they yours.
also, be discreet. don't go handing out your real name and phone number for their leaders to contact you right away. attend at least a couple of meet & greets and at least one training exercise before giving out any personal information.
keep in mind that it isn't just
an online forum like TFF; things you say and insults you hurl CAN and WILL have an effect on you in real life. therefore it would behoove you to save the mom jokes for CoD.
that's all i can think of for now.
