Hey Nitro, glad to have you here. Great first weapon you got there. The Mosin has a lot going for it. If you just start out and read about survival and preparedness online please keep those things in mind:

  • Skills beat equipment because you always have them with you and they can’t easily break or run out of power (unless you do)
  • If you shop for equipment go for good quality essentials first (like the Mosin, a good knife and so on)
  • Don’t get too caught up in all the tactical stuff, just like Selco also said in his last post, urban survival is more about clean water than guns.
  • Practice what you read and learn. Practice matters a lot.
  • Just like the few pointers above, survival has a lot to do with common sense. Read a lot, practice a lot and be open to all sorts of solutions.
