    Cudo's to your Sourdough. Good luck on the test results. You have to know that with enough time those would have become cancerous. You may have just saved yourself a lot of agony. Listen up boys and girls. This is true survival stuff. Get it done!!

    Add a Canteen/cup and a nylon tarp. Good quality and big enough for the job is all that counts on a small amount gear like this. Of coarse with more gear weight will become a factor.

    Guys and gals - the OP did not say those were the only three items you would have with you. I took the OP to be asking for which models or brands of the three listed items would you trust, not you've only got these three things.

    It all depends on where, what, and so forth. Need more data. I live in "The People's Republic of Illinois;" so a gun is usually out of the question...as for the others, well, I can't answer based on the scarcity of data.

    Looking at the gear that I presently have.


    1) Knife = KABAR
    2) Gun = 54 GPR
    3) Axe/Tomahawk = I would pref. my hawk, but I would take the ax for bigger work.


    Now given the SHTF scenario, I would pick up the first AK, M-16, or any modern day rifle I could.

    Hey B remember we all agreed not to pick on Rick this week. Remember?
    If by what I have learned over the years, allow me to help one person to start to prepare. If all the mistakes I have made, let me give one person the wisdom that allows them to save their life or the life of a loved one in an emergency. Then I will truly know that all the work I have done will have been worth every minute.

    I will side with Crash and say that he is just asking what are my three choices in those categories, not that my choice of stuff is limited to 3 things. Here are my choices.

    1. Mora
    2. a .22
    3. Wetterlings/Gransfor/Estwing

    Hey, I made no such resolution! But, anyway, I NEVER pick on poor, little, defenseless Rick.

    And that's why the ban button is getting dusty. You hang in there. I may need a Junior Minister of Science some day.

    I'm staying in my house until someone carries my dead body out.
    1. If it's in your kit and you don't know how to use it....It's useless.
    2. If you can't reach your kit when you need it....Its useless.

    Now I envision the D-8 equipped with massive speakers blaring Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries as Sourdough heads toward the budding metropolis of Los Anchorage with M-60 blazing a trail with a fiery night stream of tracers.

    Speaking of tracers I picked up 60 rounds of Federal .223 Tracers in Anchorage Sunday.

    I was in Guam and we were at the range one day doing some practice with M-14's. While we were loading up our magazines we noticed that quite a few of the loose rounds in the cans were phosphorus tipped. Being the young Sailors that were were, it seemed only logical to "expend" the tracers.

    Did you know that if you and the guys to your left and right all focus fire at about 200 yards that in no time at all, you will stop shooting and get some training in putting out a brush fire?

    Do you know if the use of Tracers requires a special cleaning of the barrel........?

    The cleaning we did was always the same as we did with non-tracers. We didn't get to shoot them a lot though, so I don't know if that is a fair assessment for the need to or not.

    I made no such rash and unattainable promise!

    As far as the gear goes, I do not restrict myself to any three objects or brands. It I can't take it all I am not leaving!

    As stated before, and more than once, I die in place, none of this refugee grap for me.

    I did not accumilate a safe full of guns, a stellite container full of knives and a tool shed full of axes to sit around quibbling about brand or to walk away and leave a single one in favor of another.

    If I were in kyrat's position I'd feel the same way. Rather be dead with all my stuff than alive with just a few.
