Mate, nice set up.
I'm still thinking about a gilly suit for training purposes and I don't have any rifles.
However, I was lucky in purchasing an ET, some DPCU pouches and other items from a disposal store in Darwin CBD.

You like the Remy 7600? I've 'tacticool'd' mine out a fair bit which is purely a personal preference. However I see a significant lack of magazines. I like having a few mags preloaded. I've got a decent amount of the 10rnd mags for mine and they are a big improvement in capability I believe.

I bought a few ghillie suits on ebay - the young fella loves to dress up and jump out of the bushes to scare his 20yr old brother when he comes home from work.
1 was a woolen blend, very quiet, but itchy, the other a plastic type, noisy, but seems to blend in more.

Or

get some old Army cammo shirts, pants, cut into strips and make your own - is that what you've done TRG??

Mate the rifle is just a beaut little bush gun so no need for me to have anything hanging off it other than a torch that mounts off the side of the barrel. As for the mags, did you know that HK417 20rd Pmags fit straight in to 7600's?
I agree with you that bigger mags are an improvement in capability!  ;)
If I can establish a trusting relationship with people on here I will be happy to show a few other toys that I have that I wouldn't normally advertise that I own. Bear in mind that I work as a sole trader shooting on farms and on defence land at times. 8)

Sure did Jay. Made this one over a gruelling 10 week course in the Army.
I make them mostly for those who are serving and sell them for 500. This includes a brand new DPCU or MULTICAM uniform, a fully netted suit from destrung Para cord and of course loop locked dyed heshun in preferred colours and length. I actualy only make about 120 in profit from it but it's not really a profit if you consider the ridiculous amount of time and energy that is required to make one of these things properly. Having said that, I know what these suits mean for the men wearing them so a lot of love and care go in to making them. :)

That is something I was not aware of. Thank you.

I have had a good look at several of the BOB's listed on this site as well as the INCH bags and I cannot figure out what their real purpose is.

If, as many of you are saying, they are to be used in getting away from a bad situation how far do you intend to travel (walk?) and how long is that going to take and what is at the destination when you arrive there?

If you are going to be expending even moderate amounts of energy for even three days then the quantities of food listed are below what any normal person would require. Also your water is way below the normal recommended requirements.

I am new to this site and I cannot believe that the majority of the people posting to it do not seem to understand what self-preparedness means.

As I said in my first post, if you want to survive any situation you should already be living in a situation whereby you believe you have a better than even chance of survival. That includes being able to grow the majority of your own nutritional requirements and supplying all of your cooking and heating fuels. The idea of us throwing packs on our backs in any situation that made our lives here untenable is ridiculous as without additional support, regardless of the season we would within eight to ten days be fatigued, suffering from poor hygiene and be well and truly undernourished.

The idea of carrying around a variety of firearms for whatever reason is not practical. If my husband goes walkabout in the area around where we live his weapon of choice is a .22 with several magazines each loaded with several types of ammunition from sub sonic to super high velocity. With the one firearm he is able to get rabbits, foxes and if the need arises kangaroos. If he were asked to carry more than one firearm at a time the first word he would utter is why?

I am not sure what the seeds in the packs are for as there is no sign of any cultivation tools other than the folding shovel and if anyone thinks they can plant seeds and get a return on them in under 30 days even in ideal circumstances should rethink what they want to achieve long term.

We live in a situation where we are able to step outside the house and gather food from the gardens we cultivate and the stock we keep. Until we were able to do that we were not sustainable and relied heavily on the commercial world around us and until many of the people contributing to this site are able to do the same then they have no right to call themselves Preppers or Survivalists.

You're mistaking preparedness with self sufficiency. There is a reason humans evolved living in communities, it's easier and takes advantage of specialisation which results in greater productivity.

Being 100% self sufficient 100% of the time is not only unfeasible, it's also unproductive.

You're an air of arrogance in your writing which makes me think you'll blow off everyone else's opinions anyway, so not sure why I bothered writing this.

Long story short, well done. But get off your high horse

So are you saying that you have illegally shot Kangaroos before today with a .22 calibre rifle??? You Must be saying that as you said

indicating that you Know you can Kill Kangaroos with a .22 because you or your husband have done it before. :o :o ???

Did you know that its illegal to shoot Kangaroos without the Government Authorization to do so and NEVER will it be suitable or an allowed practice to shoot them with a .22!!!???  This is an offence that could potentially see you & hubby locked up in a comfy cell!  :( :o

As far as being near dead due to being smelly and hungry after 8 days, it's clear to me that you don't really know much about anyone or what they can do & have done, other than yourself and perhaps hubby.
I have asked you about your claimed Army experience before & you simply dodged it and waffled on with some other garbage about trekking in wild hostile environments for days on end without the comforting showers at Base camp! Sound familiar?  Do you know a member that goes by the name ICUB4UCME by any chance?? You pair would get on like a house on fire if not already intimately engaged in "Take by Force" training!  ;)

For your vast knowledge base it's a note worthy thing to mention that Super sonic Super Duper high performance kangaroo killing .22 bullets, are really only about 100ftps faster than subsonics and not really worth it for the trade off of indicating to everyone where you are!

Hi Samantha. Do you know ICUB4UCME or Elijah from DPF? Your views are very similar.

I do see where you are coming from - staying in.

BUT

Being prepared is more than just planning for 1-2 situations. No matter what your best intentions or plans are, circumstances can change very quickly, and you may be forced to bug out. Unless you have a contingency plan for this, then you aren't really prepared. A lot of bugging out isn't just to grab a bag and a gun, hit the road and try to survive, but I think you will see that there is a well formulated plan around bugging out. A lot of bugging out is the means to get to a secondary location, that, if well thought out, then becomes your bug in place.

I also think you underestimate some people here. A lot have military skills and survival skills that the average person can't comprehend.
You mentioned some service with the Army also - can you elaborate. We had a particular oxygen thief here who made the same claim - a professional marksman & ex-Army. Turns out he was a cadet ( nice try, but does NOT qualify as Army service), and who later stated he was an ABN registered person who shot professionally, but that to use this term is a matter of definition and interpretation. (Turns out he liked to shoot a lot - that doesn't make you a marksman either).

Like many others here, I have survived longer than 8 days with what food i can carry, as well as water. So, If I was forced to bug out, I am pretty confidant I'll get through for even longer periods of time.

I think it is poor judgement to limit yourself to one .22. What if you are separated from your group, and need a means to survive yourself, or even to defend yourself from marauding former cadet Staff Sergeants hell bent on taking your food and then after having their fill of food, decide to have you for dessert??? Yes, a .22 is a great weapon to have, and everyone should have some ( I got 4 ), but certain situations call for bigger calibres - I bet if someone met Mr .303 the only steps they will take will be backwards.
Hunting with a .22 is quiet, but, you can be limited with your choice of game. Me, I have no trouble taking down a roo, and have even taken down a 120kg deer during the day with a .22. BUT, I may have just been lucky. Limiting yourself to 1 rifle is shortsighted, and shows a lack of preparedness.

So what happens when your garden is ravaged, and local game is all shot out?? Do you stick to plan A?? Or maybe join ICU and his marauding band of ravenous former cadets blasting off their 367, 890 rounds of .308 180gr hollow points in their modified .222 rifles??

Smart people will prepare for more than 1 situation, and have a plan A,B,C & D for each likely occurance. You can't plan for 1 thing, because, no one can know what will occur, and, to have no alternate plan means that person is doomed. This is the same if you are alone or in a large group/community. In a group if things start going pear shaped, people will leave, and take what they want. What if the group leaves and it's just you and hubby?? Have you planned for that??

I hope that the S never HTF, but if it does, if you ever see a band of morons led by a womble wearing cadet cams, shoot first!!!

You may feel comfortable with your plan, but once you get comfortable, you lose control and become an easy target.
