Essential Survival Gear

Keep it simple stupid (not you of course, you’re brilliant).

That’s all that matters when it comes to your survival.

Another axiom is a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

Both statements apply to securing survival gear in these dire times.

So what does this look in regards to survival gear?


It’s a no brainer.

If you’re not privy to 2A and object to securing black market tools (which of course you do! Hi FBI) then find whatever legal weaponry you can procure to ensure your survival.

When the SHTF it’s going to become abundantly clear that you never could have relied on the police to protect you.

Depending on your location and the laws therein, I would also suggest looking into 3D printers for weaponry.

We’re well beyond the days where 3D printed weapons were a dicey proposition, though care should always be taken.

Food & Water

How do you expect to survive without food and water?


Non-perishable goods, long life emergency food and collect and store rainwater.

Yes, learn to can goods.

Yes, learn to hunt.

Yes, purchase arable farmland.

There’s a hundred things you can do to maximize your security.

But let’s be real. Some of you won’t be able to do this for many different reasons.

Finances are the most common hurdle in spite of good intentions or desire.

So, keep it simple stupid.


This is the most important of “survival gear” imaginable.

One person with a gun versus an entire town. It’s a no brainer.

One person with a bug out bag or an extended family with a diverse range of skills and equipment.

Easiest approach is to speak with your loved ones and those you’ve known since you were a kid.

Find like-minded people and work together to ensure everyone can support one another.

The trust should be there after years of relationship, then all you need to build is competency.

Each person should be tasked with learning a specific skill while the entire group should regularly have weapons training together.

Build that competency now so you’re not caught out later.


It’s not as hard as it seems and a few simple choices today can greatly increase your odds of survival tomorrow.

Plus, it can be a fun and physically stimulating hobby which gets you outdoors and connecting with others.

That’s a win-win in my book.
