Gun that make sense for me, without going into the endless discussion what weapon is best for carrying, it is great for me.
Torch light with extra battery
Small but very powerful source of light with zoom option.
Sometimes (in SHTF events, very often) you need small source of light, more powerful light in some situation can be dangerous.
Cheapest and most simplest source of fire.
Must have for many uses.
Small, light, but still very powerful thing for multiple uses, for use on everything from clothes to wire.
Simply for hygiene, or in other cases it can be used for first aid.
Of course things can be taken out or added, like extra magazines, or paracord bracelet, or disposable raincoat.
It is matter of planning.

Perfect. Simple, effective, lightweight. There is no such thing as the “perfect survival gun”. It is the one that you can make go bang and hit your target consistently.March 23, 2014 at 5:39 pm #2167
I am trying to keep it just like that, lightweight and simple.
There is no way that I can have everything I need in my EDC, but my point is to cover basics and to be light.March 25, 2014 at 2:53 am #2365
Small .357 revolver (caliber not most important) w/ spare ammo, pocket knives, good LED flashlight, a couple ways to make fire, compass, fishing/snaring stuff, first aid items, rope/cordage, couple space blankets, assorted hand tools, long shelf life food for at least a few days, water & filtration/purification, change of clothes, rain/cold weather gear. Easier for me than for some, as I am in/with my truck 99% of the time (old school non-electronic, non-computerized diesel w/ manual transmission- looks ugly, runs great). If I knew it was SHTF time, I’d add my 10/22 and pump shotgun and lots of ammo…and wife and dogs…March 31, 2014 at 12:23 am #5638
I also carry a full sized Glock, but I carry extra mags and a second knife. I also carry a sap and small flashlight on me with a second small light and extra batteries in my vehicle.April 1, 2014 at 6:54 pm #6170
Nice set up Selco! Thanks for adding the forum option to the SHTF School website. I’ve gained much from your course over last year or so and the forum is already a great resource!April 2, 2014 at 8:50 pm #6414
