    Things Needed When SHTF.

    I see many of the posts on here do not even mention weapons (an absolute MUST when SHTF).

    Perhaps because I am a Texan and the Lone Star State is a FREE state (where citizens are able to not only arm themselves but use their gun to protect themselves, their property or family) that I will mention this later in my post.

    I have alot of friends who were Special Forces (Green Berets, Marine Recon, Navy Seals, etc.) and we have oftentimes spoken about this very subject.

    Here are the top recommended items in your "Survival Kit":

    1. Knife: The most important outdoor survival tool is a sturdy knife.
    Non-folding knives with three inch blades are extremely versatile.
    Knives can be used to build friction fire-making kits, gather shelter
    materials, and harvest wild edibles.

    2. Water Purification: Purifying water primitively can be very time
    consuming. A good water filtering bottle or pump filter can save lots
    of energy, providing one of the most important survival needs -
    clean drinking water.

    3. Wool Blanket: Even the best natural shelters can be quite cold. A
    simple wool blanket can add enough extra warmth to make the
    difference between being too cold to sleep versus getting a good
    night's rest. It also insulates when wet.

    4. Lighter: A lighter can allow you to start fire efficiently. A good fire
    allows you to purify water, cook food, and warm a shelter.

    5. Matches: Matches provide a back-up to your lighter. Lighters can
    malfunction or run out of fuel. Its prudent to carry more than one
    fire-making tool. Better than a lighter or matches are a couple of
    "fire strikers."

    6. Compass: Even with excellent aidless navigation skills, an overcast or
    foggy day can make orienting extremely difficult. A compass can
    point you in the right direction.

    7. First Aid Supplies: Injuries are common in the outdoors, and without
    treatment small wounds can become very debilitating. Always carry
    first aid supplies.

    8. Flashlight: In a survival situation, night often falls before you've
    completed a shelter and collected enough firewood. A flashlight
    helps you wrap up those last important details and can signal for
    help. The hand-cranked generator type of flashlights are best since
    they don't require batteries.

    9. Small Mess Kit Bowl: A metal bowl can be used to collect and purify
    water, as well as cook wild edibles. It also makes for a handy
    container to hold the smaller items in your outdoor survival kit.

    10. Parachute Cord: Parachute cord can be used as part of a bow-drill
    friction fire-making kit, and can also help in shelter construction and
    a variety of other needs.

    A hand-cranked generator emergency radio is a must.

    You will need water then some sort of shelter and then food.

    If you are in the city get out as fast as you can and head to a rural area (when SHTF metropolitan areas are going to be Hell on earth - remember what happened in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina).

    Know how to hunt and fish, dress an animal (us Rednecks have got all you sophisticated city folks all beat since we do this kind of thing already) , build a shelter. One of the single best survival books you can own (and don't laugh when I tell you this) is a Boy Scout Manual. Lots of valuable information.

    As far as weapons are concerned, you hear all these loonie survivalists say get an AK-47 or other assault rifle) or a shotgun (all good but heavy as is their ammo). They are good to have but you will have a harder time looking for the type of ammo needed. Your best bet is a simple pistol or rifle in .22LR - this type of ammunition is readily available and you can carry substantial quantities due to the bullets being smaller and lighter weight.

    What is boils down to is the will to survive and be willing to do whatever is necessary to stay alive.

    There are many people who THINK they could point a gun at an attacking Negro or other cretin and pull the trigger, but talking about it and actually doing it are two entirely different propositions.

    When I was in my 20's I had an encounter with a guy who pulled a gun on me outside a bar. I was sitting in my friend's truck and he happened to have a pistol under his seat. This guy with the gun (a semi-automatic pistol) was walking towards my friend and was brandishing the weapon openly. I grabbed my friend's pistol and pointed the pistol at this nut and told him if he took one more step I would shoot him twice in the head before he had a chance to even pull the trigger (I have been shooting guns since I was 7 years old and am an excellent marksman). The guy dropped his gun and walked back into the bar without it.

    I was fully prepared to "dispatch" him then and I know today that if my safety or my life or the life or safety of my family or someone I care about is threatened I would employ whatever "means" necessary (with extreme "prejudice") to preserve that life. and that includes taking a life.

    So there you have it.

    Your post is hard to read because of formatting, but I agree weapons would be important. For us Scandinavians, it is hard to get fire arms. I have several knifes though.

    I reformatted my post so it would be easier to read (thanks for pointing that out; oftentimes I get a bit overly passionate about a thread topic and "my fingers race to keep up with my brain").

    I would urge Scandinavians to start organizing and petition the government to allow it's law-abiding citizens to arm themselves. If the law-abiding citizenry are only permitted to own knives, then perhaps "going Viking on their ass" (i.e., some of these scum who live off the doles of the government and prey upon the native-born there) will be necessary in order for both the people and the government to wake up and take notice of this ever-increasing escalation in violent crimes there.

    Here is one of my favorite quotes about an unarmed society:

    "An armed society is a polite society.
    Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his
    life."
    - Robert A. Heinlein

    Yes, it's true. The government here dosnt fear it's citizens. You have to be a in a pistol club and go to practice and have a clean record to be able to own a pistol.

    To own a shotgun, you need a clean record and have passed a hunters exam.

    It was compulsory for us to go to the army when we finished with school. It was the best thing that could have happened to me. (I used to be an a-hole)

    Not the killing bit, but the discipline, comradeship and the wonderful knowledge that was pumped into me – over and over. That saved us on many occasions, because survival becomes second nature after a while.

    I’ll survive in South Africa with only a knife during summer. In the winter, it would be more difficult. Warm clothes is an essential extra.

    I think that all kids, boys and girls, should get (prep military) training during school and proper mil training after school. Survival in all forms should be taught to them. Then nobody will be a burden when SHTF.

    The discipline would do wonders too for these X-box professionals. They will see that the restart button can only solve fake X-box problems and not real life situations.

    Again, I’m old school and should maybe not be so harsh.

    Citizens with paramilitary experience, is also an eye-opener for a potential difficult government. They know that the citizens are ready to defend themselves and will use their knowledge.

    Like Switzerland, it should be compulsory to keep your rifle at home and practice with it on a regular basis. Be ready.

    Then I strongly urge you and my other Germanic brothers and sisters in Scandinavia (and elsewhere for that matter) to get shooting!!

    I have been working on preparing for a SHTF scenario for just over 30 years now.

    I feel a need to be able to plant, which means a few tons of grains and garden seed, I spent this years gardening working on producing my own seed, it went quite well.

    Hay is another important thing to have stored up, anyone who wishes to survive a major disaster needs food for animals.

    Weapons are usefull, I have all that I need for hunting beyond that I have no real concern.

    A good set of tools and equiptment, very important, those who can fix, build and create would be worth gold, those who cannot will have little value.

    I feel it important to identify people within ones community that are predisposed to leadership ability and able perform specific functions in the event government was no longer there.

    Most of all one needs to be prepared mentally for the rigors such an event will bring about. Tough, is a state of mind not physical characteristic.

    I could write a small book here but then no one would read it, so I will leave it at that.
