A rotated 12 month stock of foods, and medications. Paracord, JB Weld, latex and silicone caulk, plastic sheeting, zip-ties, duct tape, 3/4 precut plywood w/screws for windows and doors, 4 cord of wood, solar battery charger, fishing line w/hooks, med kit, tons of salt/sugar, alcohol still, botanical med book for production/dosing.
Any 7.62x51mm rifle, or any 5.56x45mm rifle. Even if you can't stockpile these rounds, your neighbors and your Government does. My go to is the FNH 5.7x28mm. Every home owner should already have a tactical 12 gauge, every dutiful U.S. Citizen should have a rifle and or know how to expertly use one.
Safe, Lock, and Securely Stow your firearm! Never leave it unattended in your car or at home!
Express your own personal gun control less you force the Government to do it for you.
Disposable N95 dust masks are ONLY good for small limited exposure, they do NOT seal around your face adequately, allowing for unfiltered air to pass, and they won't filter pathogens and toxins. If you want superior protection then spend $100 on a well fitted and NEW full-face Mil-Spec 40mm NATO mask, with as many NEW filters as possible. Real functional and viable gear costs real money. Those Israeli masks might be decent but the filter cartrige that comes with them should be criminal.
Rules: 1) Be prepared. It's better to have something and not need it than to need it and not have it. This goes for information as well, learn your skills, practice them, and keep quality sources of advanced knowledge at hand. 2) Keep consumption down. Don't depend on consumable items and resources, gas generators won't run forever, ammunition has a shelf life, protein bars won't grow a crop. Stockpile Non-GMO Seeds. Be a true conservative and use solar and wind power. 3) Time, distance, and shielding. Whatever your enemy is - whether nuke or angry hoard, put distance and mass between you and it, and do it for as long as possible."
"Strong, well placed straps and a rubber face seal, can filter gases. Use the included prefilters for particulate (smoke/dust). 10 min. of breathing concrete dust is deadlier than a lifetime of smoking (ref to 9/11). Full-face mask version can op w/SCBA too."
"This is for all you Zombie Lovers out there. Defending yourself from an unsuspected aggressor or clearing a path in vegetation. Make sure you get a belt frog for this. This is very impressive for the price, I'm a big dude, and this hasn't nicked or bent, and the handle hasn't split either. Use gloves or a tight wrap."
"My first choice for a defensive CQC weapon. Fraction of the weight of a hatchet. You can use these as batons. Get two, you can give one to your partner. These are very functional as standard camping/hunting gear as well."
"Get a good hacksaw (Stanley 15-113, Craftsman 9-36143, or the ultra light KR Tools 11708 - the DEWALT DW3970 is to heavy) with storage in the handle and keep a carbide blade, and as many 18tpi blades as you can fit in the handle, plus one of these blades turned inwards and installed for storage. Grizzly sells these blades in 3 packs. Cuts woods and bone."
"Fire, is the #1 survival tool, in some cases if you have fire, you can capture and sterilize your water. Carry a slim Zippo or two w/wicks and flints, a BIC, an extra ferrocerium striker and this magnesium shaver."
"Zippos leak and get lost, this won't. Zippos are useful as they stay lit at rest or even when tossed, and they use many fuels. BIC lighters are the most reliable, but this can be attached to you, and is water/air tight."
"Low profile pack that won't unbalance you. Large enough to carry everything you NEED to make a MARCH, and small enough to do it logically. You should have this with you at all times, so a massive expedition pack is too much. Comes in black too."
"Neoprene gloves rock! Hatch patrol gloves are nice too, but these have a gauntlet. Get a pair of MITTENS for severe cold. Fingers and toes are the first you'll lose, so make sure you always have enough layers and back-up."
"Use with your favorite hiking sock (Smartwool) for added comfort and protection even if it's just for a cold 2 mile walk home from a broken down car. Great for trunk kits. Just like gloves, you can't have enough socks."
"Waterproof, safety toe, full leather upper, great traction. Whether it's a boot or a shoe, they might be the last you will ever own, so make sure its tough. Put a pair of running shoes in your bug out bag or trunk."
"Get a very tough (Ripstop) outer shell. Get solid and drab colors, so you don't get recognized as a threat or combatant. I suggest Carhartt outer shells. Ponchos and boney hats offer better adaptable rain cover and camouflage."
"Bright color identifiers (cheap bandanas) can be used for comms and to keep track of people in crowded areas. Choose the brightest and most unique color and pattern fabric for your family or group. Pre-filter water or use a coffee filter."
"The compass works, the whistle is extremely loud, and it keeps your lacquered matches and tinder extra dry. Not to mention the lanyard (replace with paracord), the tiny ferrocerium rod, and the tiny mirror - all makes this little gem a pleasant surprise at under $3."
"Very nice and affordable cylindrical ceramic element water filter, Katadyn makes a better one, but it's $300. Aquamira has some great options for making back up or economical kits. Boil water or use some chlorine or iodine to treat even further."
"If you can shelter in place then buy stocks of rice and whole wheat with a mill, beans, canned food, Mountain House and Lindon Farms freeze dried food. Store your food in cool, dry, and dark areas (Don't leave in CARS, take this and water packs into work)."
"This is by far the most impressive flashlight I have ever owned. It's light weight, inexpensive, extremely bright to extremely dim, multi-functional, hands free operation and comes with a ball jointed magnetic/clip mount. Available in many colors including IR an UV."
"This is the only night vision gear you will need to spend your money on. Just let your eyes adjust to an environment with low light level, and if you have to use light then make it green and low powered."
"This or even trash bags and duct tape (or any tight knit clothes for radiological) offer great protection after fallout and dosimination of NBC Warfare. Strip down naked avoid touching outer surface, and shower with warm skin temperature water, NOT cold, NOT hot. Dispose of suit. Clean decon path."
"Every household NEEDS an ALERT weather radio. This will make sure you don't sleep through the beginning of the end. USB charging port for electronics, and a power cord for home use is for sale too. Carry a USB cord for phone.
The Eton FR160 is excellent at half the cost, it has the same basic functions except the Alert, alarm clock, and LW/SW operation."
"An all aluminum space pen capable of delivering stabing and crushing blows, and more importantly: Allows you to write down directions. Buy some "rite in the rain" printer paper for homemade maps and notebooks. Carry Sharpies too."
"I have two smalls for easier carry, and for the option to double it up for rougher/colder terrain. The ground will be colder than the air. If you can, use debris like leaves or newspaper to make a thin air barrier from the ground."
"A portable atmospheric/environmental multi-meter. If SIP, then just buy a barometer. If you are goin to be mobile, then you need to seriously consider tech like this, or learn how to read the subtle signs of nature."
"Carry all of your Survival/Military PDFs. Keep your favorite books for mental health. Carry your Torah, Qur'an, Holy Bible, Bhagaved Gita, Tripitaka and Jatakas for spiritual help if needed. 2 week charge with use. I have a Listmania list on Faraday Cages and how to make them."
