SURVIVAL HUNTING - TAKING WHAT YOU CAN GET
When it comes to hunting for your very survival, you will have to do some things and eat some things
that you may find disagreeable. However I can assure you that after about 4 days of hiking with a full
load and no food you will be begging for gerbster (Dale Gribble). Snakes and squirrels and rabbits,
turkeys and hogs, deer and elk, even bear are all fair game at any time in a survival situation. If you
have some problem with killing animals for food or are squeamish you are going to need to get over
that shit right quick. Watch some YouTube vids on cleaning and butchering game to desensitize
yourself if you have to and for God's sake do some killing and dressing now under ideal conditions
instead of waiting until you are in a survival situation. Becoming proficient at killing and preparing
game is essential to long-term survival.
As discussed on the firearms page of this website we believe your INCH bag should carry 2 firearms.
One very powerful handgun and a .22 rifle. We recommend the Ruger 10-22 rifle or the Marlin 60 both
very accurate, reliable and inexpensive. If carrying a rifle is not possible or advisable in your area (cities)
consider the Ruger Mark III Hunter .22. An awesome little hunter that will put food on the table for
pennies a shot.

SURVIVAL OF THE SMARTEST
Part of survival is rationing supplies. Ammunition is supply and you should take care to use it only when
necessary. To that end you should try to trap the majority of your game. Besides saving ammo trapping
is quiet, and the traps hunt for you while you do other things such as water collection or security patrol.
Set up multiple snares/traps to increase your odds, 10 to 20 traps is a pretty good bet. There are
hundreds of different types of snaring and trapping techniques that have been used by man for
centuries all over the planet. Start with the recommended snare set shown on the contents page and
progress to using indigenous materials to make your snares. Trapping is not difficult but does require
some practice, do it now under ideal conditions.
Strength, Simplicity and Ruggedness. Ruger® GP100® double-action revolvers are
among the most comfortable shooting revolvers. Their rugged, medium-sized frame and
hand and budget, all GP100 revolvers boast solid steel sidewalls (no side-plates), and
frame widths that are increased with extra steel in critical areas that support the barrel,
making them rugged, reliable, and dependable.
Powerful, Single-Action Performance. Handgun hunters, long-range competitors and
fans of the single-action revolver are attracted to the classic design, rugged durability and
smooth functioning of the Ruger® New Model Super Blackhawk®. Designed specifically to
exploit the full potential of the powerful .44 Magnum cartridge, its advanced design
delivers reliable performance for big-game hunters. Packed with all of the features of the
New Model Blackhawk, these revolvers boast the power of .44 Magnum chambering, yet
accept the lower-recoiling .44 Special. Affordably priced in three distinct models, the New
Model Super Blackhawk revolvers provide quality and value in all configurations.
A Tradition of Excellence, Like No Other. Ruger® Mark III™ pistols represent the evolution of
Ruger .22 LR pistols, continuing the legacy created by the Ruger Standard, Mark I and Mark II
pistols and yet incorporating many new engineering refinements. They are simple, rugged, and
affordable, making them a great value for any sporting purpose - whether target shooting,
plinking or small game hunting. With four different platforms, each with great variety and
functionality, they boast the perfect combination of proven design and reliability. Features
include: rigid barrel/receiver connection; automatic bolt-hold-open latch; comfortable, rugged
steel grip frame; contoured ejection port; easy-to-grasp tapered bolt ears; and rigidly mounted
sights for consistent accuracy. Simply stated, Mark III Pistols offer the most versatility and
value of any rimfire pistol on the market today.
The Benchmark for .22 Rifles – Experience the Tradition. The Ruger® 10/22® rifle is
America’s favorite .22 LR rifle, with proven performance in a wide range of styles for
every rimfire application. Ideally suited for informal target shooting, "plinking," small
game hunting and action-shooting events, Ruger has sold millions of 10/22 rifles since
their introduction in 1964. With its legendary action and renowned reliable rotary
magazine, all 10/22 rifles are sleek, perfectly balanced, rugged and superbly accurate.
With a variety of choices – from the standard 10/22 Carbine, to the tack-driving
accuracy of the Target model, the 10/22 is still today’s most popular .22 rifle. It looks
right, feels right, shoots right and continues to perform under heavy use - inspiring the
most fanatical loyalty from its owners. With proven design, legendary reliability and the
modern features demanded by today’s .22 LR shooters, these firearms are priced right
to make keeping tradition affordable.
Marlin 60 - "The most popular .22 in the world." Since it was introduced in 1960, it has
continuously represented one of America´s finest rimfire values. It has a 19"
Micro-Groove® rifled barrel, cross-bolt safety, manual bolt hold-open and a patented
automatic "last-shot" bolt hold-open. The tubular magazine holds up to 14 Long Rifle
rounds. And with features such as its sleek walnut-finished hardwood stock and a
precision-crowned muzzle for enhanced accuracy, it´s easy to see why the Model 60
continues to be one of America´s best-selling rifles.
