Apart from guns, magazines, cleaning kits, spare parts and ammunition, there are a few other things that you need to make the survival package complete. Much of this gear is just as important as the weapons themselves. After talking this subject over with a few old timers and serious survivalists, I found that although we disagree on some of the details, we all agree on the basic theme of the patrol gear set borrowed from military practice. Different parts of this web site deal with general survival gear and communication equipment, which is very important, but just not part of this section.

If you have your basic set of guns together and are building up the supplementary set, make sure you have these items covered before you get that third rifle or fourth handgun. Remember that you can only use (at most) two guns at a time anyway. Gun collecting can be all cool and fun, even a worthy investment, but the smart survivalist is going to be focusing on making sure he has a complete integrated set of gear on hand BEFORE it becomes a critical issue.
Another item that I think can be a good supplement to the protective and utility gear is a gas mask. I know that you do not expect to ever really need one, but police like to use tear gas whenever there is a riot and it is better to have one and not need it than need it and not have it. I have to admit, I like using the stuff too. There is something about the idea of making people cry and puke with no serious permanent damage while I just stand there with a mask on that hides the faces I am making at them. The recent Seattle riots are a good example of why you need a gas mask. I hate carrying one in my military duties, but I like the idea of keeping it at the camp or in the vehicle. Gas grenades are ridiculously easy to make by taping a large firecracker to a can of pepper spray or mace, not to mention surplus and stolen military and police CS grenades that come available from time to time. Also consider your proximity to major highways or chemical plants where there could be an accident.
