Too many variables. Are you talking about a car kit? A full blown bug-out bag? A shelter in place kit? Long term? short term? If you're not sure, then go with tgd's version! lmao

I carry a S&W .38 and a Schrade LB7 (a good sized folding knife) always, keep 100 rds of ammo in my vehicles. I also developed the habit of keeping a small amount (40-50 ft.) of heavy fishing line (min. 50 lb. strength) in my wallet many years ago. Excellent for snares and many other things. Braid 3 or more strands and it makes a fair garrote. If I'm close to home, no problems at all! Got a 40 ft steel shipping container with all kinda goodies! :twisted:

I really have to stress that everyone out here has at least 1 gun, or would have immediate access to one in any disaster. The Japos were right not to invade 'Merica. Country folk are as well armed as any drug cartel. You all should remain wary of that if you ever plan to form a rouge band of nefarious robber folk.
Generally, I don't think we would suffer for lack of food either, unless something very serious happened that killed all of our livestock. Prices would rise very high, but that's all. The Bronkema's chicken farm will still be there. But protein bars are a good idea for a short-term "I'm not lost" scenario.




Some of this advice is really good though. I like the idea of carrying fishing line. Those Paracord bracelet's supposedly can be taken apart for fishing line, but in my mind, by that time you're already dead.

Got three of these, based on good advice:

And these as well:

The water bottle is steel, so I could cook with it or boil water.

Road flares might work but I like the kind you can shoot in the air. The one's in my pack screw onto a pen launcher.

Hmm, if this thread were titled: "everything we need in a fanny pack" I might find that response relevant but I'm not quite following your train of thought here and I may need more information. As far as I am concerned a valid credit card can get you out of 99.9% of sticky situations you might encounter in the city. At the moment I see no reason to either validate or disqualify your statement.

Would the appearance of $100 in your PayPal account cause you to validate his statement?

Depends on the whereabouts of the agreement...
If I were discussing the option with someone traipsin' 'round my property whom I caught with their pants down I would do them the courtesy of accepting their gun as payment.

Let's just say I never encountered a situation where a gun was necessary or even advisable. Of course someone can imagine all sorts of scenarios. If you're worried about your house getting broken into, which may be reasonable depending on your neighborhood, It would be more sensible to buy a better lock for your door.
As far as surviving while out and about I should think that your odds of harming yourself by slipping on the sidewalk are probably greater than your encountering a situation that required a gun but you don't walk around the city with a pillow tied around your bottom do you?

I need to get my hands on one to play with. I suspect we need a "fire piston".

Probably a Sims Tactical solutions brand.

I can't find one locally but I'm thinking of trying to make one.

Here's a page with the pen flare on it and some good fire starting gear. http://www.mec.ca/Main/content_text.jsp ... search.y=0
