Hey, I don't see any sharp instruments on your list! Don't you watch The Walking Dead? Axe, machete, katana, bowie knife, crossbow, bayonette prosthetic...all invaluable when there aren't enough bullets or when you want to keep quiet.
I have 2 knives and an axe at all times in my jeep and a knife i carry on me everyday. Guess i should of added that

I like the machete idea! I also got a fold up shovel. Forgot that one too.

PS. if you have extra cash a really good water purifier I use is a Katadyn Pocket its good for 25,000 gallons of water! They go for about $200 but it will last a really long time!
I planned on making my own water filter. A lot of kool stuff on youtube of people making their own.

A thought.

For first aid kits, I found out that having tampons or sanitary napkins are really good for stopping bleeding bleeding or dressing wounds.

As for guns, I've learned that if you're planning to buy a gun, make sure it uses fairly universal ammo. Something that shoots 9 mm, and in my instance, a Ruger that handles both .357 Mag and .38 Special. .22's or an AR 15 5.56, or the .45's. Ammo is pretty easy to come by for these weapons. In a pinch you are likely to be better able to pick some up on the fly.

Just a thought, a ham radio? If you're worried about an EMP, might be wise to have a ham as your communication.

Someone mentioned about security of Jeeps. That is an issue I too plan to out a Tuffy lock box I'm mine for my handguns. I also am working on getting my CCW so I CAN hide or carry my guns. could a mount be fabricated for under the back seat? I don't know if a true long gun would fit between the wheel wells, but an AR probably would. I just picked up my new AR last night! Now I need to figure out what to do with it!

And another thought, I keep my gas tank at least half full at all times, partly for weather reasons, or bad traffic. Dewey isn't going to go far on a couple of gallons.

All fits in a nice bag under the hatch in my "trunk" minus the shovel and hatchet which I am in the process of attaching to my tailgate.

Right now I don't even have an interior in my Jeep, it's stripped for Monstalining. When it's back together a BOB is priority one.

I'm a prepper too and have stocked most of the listed items at my house. Never considered the fish antibiotics but I will now. I also keep a BOB in a locker at work.

You guys may know about these websites but in case you don't I'm gonna list them here... SurvivalBlog.com
Survivalist Forum Survival Gear SHTF and TEOTWAWKI Articles
SHTF Ready - Survival, Disaster and Emergency Readiness Forum
self-reliance | homesteading | canning | backwoods | magazine

BTW Good thread.

You could also throw some lint from your drier and a small thing of Vaseline or chap stick in your bag. Take a small amount of the lint and mix some of the vas or chap into the fibers and there ya go.

In my bag I keep a pill container filled with about twenty cotten balls saturated with melted petroleum jelly, can be used as fire starter and ointment just in case. Thumb !

I got the solar charger from 7-11 of all places. I tested it and it seems to work with my iPhone pretty well (not an iPhone 5) it also ha plugs for the most common cell phone types.

I think I remember seeing one of the US special forces crew demonstrate the various uses of a tactical shovel on Deadliest Warrior...it was super bad-ass!

sure

heat up a glob of petroleum jelly in a bowl with a hair dryer, it does not take much to liquify it. put a layer of 100% cotton balls in another container. pour the liquid over the balls. Add another layer of balls on top of the last and pour. Complete the process as many times as you wish to make as many balls.

when you need a fire pull a ball out. stretch it out to get the fibers exposed and hit it with a flint and steel, lighter, or match.

the PJ will cause it to burn longer giving it time to ignite your tinder. It will even work damp.

another trick is to add the balls into a cardboard egg container and add in some fat wood shavings. then you just break off a square and voilla...

FIRE!

When I hike, or Jeep I keep a flint and steel and a small zip lock with 3 balls of PJ cotton in my pocket. My pack I keep a 35 MM film cont. full, and another in my Jeep. With practice you can start 3 fires off 1 jumbo ball.

for steel I like to use pieces of hack saw blades because of the high carbon content.

A good boyscout trick is to use your dryer lint. Make sure you don't have any pet hair in the mix. Smells bad. It's light weight and there's no chemical or container issues. It would also minimize your sent when burning. In a survival scene you don't want to be discovered unless on your own terms.
A small amount of tint goes a long ways.
