Top 10 Most Needed Survival Supplies
Top 10 Most Needed Survival Supplies for any SHTF situation.
Whether you believe the future includes an apocalyptic end to life as we know it complete with intense solar flares, reversed polarity, and super volcanoes or a glorious rebirth for the virtuous or that nothing on that scale will ever happen, it’s still a good idea to have survival supplies. You never know when a natural disaster or some other unforeseen event is going to limit your ability to live as you do now and force you into a preservation mode. Over the past few years we have seen numerous earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and man-made catastrophes that have caused people to be without power, fresh water, food, and energy. Preparing for these events will help ensure your survival when civilization as we know it suffers a break-down.
Here are listed the survival supplies you should have in order of importance. Don’t agree with the list? Vote for an existing item you think should be ranked higher or if you are a logged in, add a new item for others to vote on or create your own version of this list.
The Top Ten List
The human body can survive for up to a month without food and for many months on very meager rations. But the odds are stacked against you of surviving much more than a week without water.
So true. We have plenty of rains and snow.. But still in summer there is water crisis.. So water storage needs to be increased.
This is the best idea here, but what’s up with you guys. I would grip some chicks to save.
[Newest]I love water no wonder its on the top

2Water Purification Kit
No matter how much water storage you have, there is a chance you will run out. Make sure you can add to your stash if need be.
This is the best choice because water can be found everywhere. If world falls into a world of disaster, then there should still be some living creatures or plants which you can get liquid from (urine is one idea), but it is not suitable for human drinking, therefore purification kits can help a lot!
I think that is a good idea… Purifying water would be needed more then storing water…
There were lost of cases where people had no water to drink and they purified
The water and survived,
So, I think that its better to be ready with water purifiers then being prepared with gallons and tones of water…
[Newest]This is really important! Else death.

3First Aid Kit
Prior to the modern age of medicine, relatively minor wounds led to death far more often than you would imagine. In wartime just 150 years ago, far more soldiers died from sickness and infection than from actual combat trauma. Having a well stocked first aid kit complete with antibiotics and other infection fighting supplies may be the difference between successfully treating a minor injury and dying a miserable sepsis induced death.
I have been in the 3 world nations and know what is needed. First water, food, and first aid. Top 3. But with out first aid to treat wounds and cut and infections you could die really fast. The first and sec are importion but the most is medication. Think Obama care and then you will understand what I am saying.
+9Always helpful, and why would you have a gun? It’s such a negative idea, I mean you need to heal people more than kill. Right?
[Newest]If you get cut you can help it by fixing it up. This will work as a tree marker!

f you have ever been in a survival situation then this would be at the top of your list. Here is a short list of what a survival knife could be used for. Cleaning game, preparing shelter, opening food rations, creating shelter, and starting fires (with flint not just a random rock like in the movies)
The knife was created before we were capable (as a species) of harnessing the power of fire.
The knife is the most universal tool ever devised. With a knife you are capable of creating other tools… Such as hammers, axes, water stills (from plastic bottles. ) The knife will always be the one tool man can turn back to in any situation and create a new way to adapt to your surroundings.
This. Using only a knife, I can make many other things from scratch left behind by the fallen human civilization. Food and water is much easier to find, you can build a house, open things you find (canned food, locked doors). It’s overall the most versatile item you can possibly have.
[Newest]The sharpened edge is what allowed humans to become what we are today. With a sharp edge all other human achievements that enable survival are possible. As others have mentioned the uses for a sharp edge are too many to count and enable a person to create or obtain all the other items. This is what allowed human evolution to truly happen.

This is my handgun. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My handgun is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My handgun, without me, is useless. Without my handgun, I am useless. I must fire my handgun true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will…
My handgun and myself know that what counts in this war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit…
My handgun is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will keep my handgun clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will …See More
A handy tool just in case mankind turns to cannibalism… Quick and easy.
Handguns are great I shoot regularly, but remember to practice all the time. Shoot in a league this way you create a sense of urgency for yourself. Shooting under stressful circumstances creates confidence in ones abilities. simulation training, paint balling, clay shooting, shooting a bow, shooting a 22 long rifle and pistol, as well revolvers are all things a prep-per/survivalist should be doing all the time. knowledge, and experience are the keys to living through SHTF situation.

It can be used to repair everything on this list, you can tie people up, it’s waterproof, you can use it as a bandage, fix your clothes, your tents, you can’t live without it!
Haven’t you all seen the Mythbuster’s Duct Tape Island, how they could make water canteens, hammocks, terraniums, shoes, hats and even found a way to get out of the island —–by just using duct tape!
ts duct tape for gods sake.. What else needs to be said I mean really duct tape has many many uses and every single one of them can be helpful
[Newest]Duct tape is awesome!

Yes It would be better with a backpack to carry all of your stuff instead of using your arms all the time so it could carry more stuff and your hands are free. Seriously, whoever thinks it would be harder with a backpack is wrong If you go to school and carry a backpack all day you’ll get used to it
Come on. It’s a backpack. A backpack! It should be top 15, I’d say.
Backpack is a great idea and it keeps you hands free to use the handgun!
[Newest]You could put everything that you see on the list and pack them all in to the backpack instead of 1 thing on your belt few little things in your pockets.

An unloaded gun is useless! You need to have plenty of ammo! You have to protect what is yours!
Lots of uses other than threatening others, including self-defense, hunting, signalling… And lots of it is needed to train others in marksmanship for hunting/defense. Even without a gun ammo is valuable. Especially if you have popular calibers, you now have something to trade with others.
Waving a gun around may be enough to scare away some, but being armed won’t do you nearly as much good if you don’t have any bullets.
[Newest]Its is useless without a gun but when paired with a firearm the kit to maintain it and munitions you would have self protection

Very good indeed matches cook food make fire signal people keep warm but possibly I think you can just make a fire out of fire wood
You can’t cook without it out there!
Makes fire… For cooking, signalling, destroying, sterilizing so much easier..
[Newest]You would only have about 10. You need FLINT! It lasts forever! DUH!
