Survival List?

I see a bunch of tac gear and thats about it. My survival list at least consists of food, medical supplies, compass, maps, possibly a GPS, an axe or machete, and that is just a few things.
Superfrye's list looks like he is going on a raid and that is what he needs to survive that situation.

I'm thinking

Rifle-- my Mauser hunting rifle: range, reliability, accuracy... it's the weapon I'm most familiar with, so I would do better with it, even if it's not the fanciest

Pistol-- my Ruger GP-100 .357 magnum: I can put both .38 and .357 ammo through it, and the GP-100 is almost indestructible

Shotgun-- my Mossberg 12-gauge: I'll probably leave this at camp most of the time, but it's a versatile weapon, and still handy to have around

Long blade-- hatchet/tomahawk: more useful than a machete for most US environments, handy for hacking through barriers and pitching camp, as well as an extremely destructive hand-to-hand weapon

Knife-- old Puma hunting knife: hand-forged in Solingen, Germany. They're hard to beat and this one has proven handy on numerous hog hunting expeditions

Water-- a hand-pumped micropurifier and a Camel-Bak: You need lots of water if you're fighting, and you'll want to be able to filter it yourself if you're going to be separated from ready supplies

Medicine-- Full first-aid kit, with some additions (pressure bandages, anyone? How about morphine syrettes and an epipen?) and surgical instruments, as well as a lot of rubbing alcohol for sterilization

Tools-- Combat entrenching tool, gun cleaning kits, hammer, nails, splitting maul, crowbar, socket wrench, wrench, duct tape, flashlights, Coleman stove and lanterns, wire, rope, canvas tarpaulins: all handy to have around, especially for pitching a semi-permanent camp. These would be left at camp while I was out fighting or scavenging.

Food-- already provided for, according to your description

Radio-- both short-range and long-range radios: I can listen in to friendly and enemy broadcasts, if nothing else

Topographical maps of the surrounding area: Another handy thing to have for when the power runs out

Several small solar panels, possibly scavenged from yard lights: could be re-wired to trickle charge handy devices, such as laptops, radios, and GPS systems.

Flare gun: Just in case

Repair manuals: Again, just in case

Other: Gasoline, kerosene, thermite: A little gasoline in case I can secure a vehicle or genny, kerosene or propane for the Coleman stove, and thermite to cut through obstacles.

If this is an invasion scenario, then I'm assuming that I've been isolated. In that case, I intend to fight a hit-and-run battle, using my old battle rifle to engage and harass at medium range, and adapting Iraqi-style bombing tactics to my own purposes to buy me time and further harass the invading force. I'm going to want a hidden, semi-permanent camp somewhere to stash gear and supplies while I'm harassing the enemy and taking what I can from them, and I'd probably ride a bicycle or something of the like, because it's quiet and stealthy, if not very cool. I'd target enemy supply trucks and the like, laying low until the main body of their force passed, because that's where they'd be most vulnerable. Any army powerful enough to invade the USA would have to be packing a serious supply train behind it.

Fight like WWII Russian/Soviet Partisans.

yep

he's on the right track but so far no mention of why he wouldn't drop that mauser and pick up whatever Govt.issue rifle becomes available,unless he has a lot of reloads.Good list though.

Y'all can call me whatever you like. I live in Texas right now, and I'm originally from Oklahoma. I'm a State Guardsman, not a fed, but I'm just a recruit right now until I can take three inches off my waist (I took off fifteen pounds and three inches last month, so unless Thanksgiving kills me, I should be okay). I'm also a college student and I want to go to medical school-- I'm pre-med right now, and I need to pick a more specific major, like maybe biology or chemistry.

I operate off the philosophy that whatever gun you're most familiar with is going to be the one you're most effective with, regardless of high ammunition capacity or style. I can reach out and touch somebody with that Mauser, and I keep plenty of ammunition around for hog hunting. I figure if I run out... well, anybody who invades us will probably be carrying Kalashnikovs, and I know how to use one, they're just not my favorite. I'd rather pick up a Dragunov-- 7.62x54R makes a helluva mess.

7x57 isn't the most powerful ammunition out there, compared to like a .300 WSM or .50-caliber sniper weapons, but it's reasonably light and the rifle itself is deadly accurate... I don't think my opponent's going to care much about caliber when I shoot him in the head.

Mauser

I should probably also elaborate that this Mauser was my first rifle, and it was given to me by my grandfather, who used it on various game up in Alaska in the '60's, as well as deer in Texas and Oklahoma, so not only do I know how to use it well, but it also has a lot of sentimental value to me.

You've gotta have something to keep you going, ya' know? Something to tie you to home, and that rifle would go a long way with me.

Did I really put a H&R single shot as a survival shotgun? Wow, what the fuck was I thinking? Ah, how far I have come. How far have I come, you ask? Well, not very far, usually. But far enough to get the sperm to the egg. I'm a funny, motherfucker, huh? No? Damn.

It's not what I consider the most reliable shotgun ever. There are certainly better ones out there. I like my Mossberg 590SP or a Remington 870 over the Saiga.

Everyone has there personal prefrence of shotguns, to the eye of the beholder the shotgun types have there advantages and disadvantages. It really is the choice of the user on which shotgun to use for the battle conditions or hunting conditions. If ya are huntin then a pump is fine or a semi but in a battle ya might want to spray as much lead down field at the least amount of time as possible and a semi or full auto shotgun will prove useful then and there. Thats how I see it anyways. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong on anything.

I like my Saiga for the novelty, but if I'm using a semi, the Remington 1100 Tactical with 22" barrel is my preferred choice

nope

the 410 is piss poor performance wise,not one cartridge has passed the FBI minimum penetration test,even the .410 round that Winchester developed for the Judge failed. It's a range toy,anybody that would depend on it as a defensive weapon is a fool.

But who the hell is going to carry all that shit for you?
Do you have a squad standing by.

I guess 1st thing is have a plan where to go

2Nd when you know where you are going you might
know what you need to carry

Someone said when I need an automatic weapon
there will be plenty laying around.

The more you try to take with you, the slower you will be
leaving.

I'm looking at buying a barrel conversion for my single
shot 20ga to 30-40 Kraig. Not the best but will do for
a while until other things come along.

I guess yall are planning on a vehicle being available
to haul all your stuff. I think you better rethink that and
plan on what you can carry or mabe haul in a cart of
some kind.

Just my thoughts (what a dumb ass huh)

The weapons and supplies that I have at home will easily fit into the cab and bed of my F350, although I don't plan to leave the house unless absolutely necessary

Now, the original post discussed an occupied America, and as we have seen during the high-profile abuses of power of our government in the early '90s, a static defense against a numerically superior force who has unlimited resources will fail time and again. So if this is the kind of event you are planning for (not very likely, in my opinion), then mobility is a key element of the planning, but rolling around in a "liberated" tank will likely get you a visit from an occupier's attack helicopter unit.

If this is the type of scenario you are planning for, you should certainly give a lot of thought to caching weapons and supplies in places that are out of the way, but accessible. Again, I doubt this type of event will ever happen here, but who knows?

Don't forget:

1. Water Filtration Unit!
2. Flashlights with Extra Batteries!
3. Rice: easy to carry food that stretches what you find along the way... MRE's are good, but take a lot of space...
4. Good Boots and Extra Socks!
5. Gold Bond Powder! Feet and groin, feet and groin! Long distance foot travel in heat will kill you otherwise...

Just my humble honest opinion....

I am on a farm so I think I will stay put.
I have a concrete storm cellar as a
shelter so they better have something

in the country. It's the city folks who
better be worried.
