So you’ve survived the apocalypse and now you must (to the best of your ability) survive the day to day struggles of existance.  Keep in mind the following to increase your survival chances.

  • Prepare yourself for a struggle.  The reality is that once everything you have stockpiled is gone, you will have to go back to some very basic living.
  • You must develop the ability to be self sufficient.
  • You must be adaptable to change.
  • There will be no Walmarts or Targets or gun shops or gunsmiths, etc.  so you need to have pre-stocked what you will initially need to survive.
  • 12 Gauge Pump Action Shotguns, AR’s and AK’s and handguns all with sufficient mags as needed and lots of ammo will be essential.
  • Your survival is heavily influenced by how you deal with a crisis or a disaster.
  • Take care of what needs to be taken care of.  Even the simplest things left unattended can have significant consequences.
  • Don’t panic.  Stay calm.
  • Establish priorities and stay organized.
  • Stay informed.
  • Maintain a positive attitude.
  • Be aware of your surroundings as things can change rapidly.
  • Know your limitations.
  • Conserve your resources.
  • Failure is not an option.
  • Knowledge and training with firearms will be a critical survival factor.


  1. I wish people would get the ‘self sufficient’ part. It never ceases to amaze me that people don’t understand that the only help you will be able to depend on is SELF help. Even if there is someone else to help you, they are in the same boat as you are with the same risks and needs. You rear end is not their responsibility it is yours, even if you are working together and pooling resources, you need to be able to take care of yourself.

    It is amazing Cheryl. I’ve never understood how some folks will not do for themselves when they are perfectly capable of doing so.
