Just a quick reminder to check out your survival gear before a disaster strikes, not afterwards.  Make sure your Bug Out Bag is well built, properly packed and will withstand harsh environments.  Make sure your rifles are properly zeroed for defensive purposes and you are equally proficient with your shotguns and handguns.  Remember an improperly zeroed weapon will basically mean your point of aim will not equal your point of impact.  Go to any range and watch people consistently miss their targets due to improper zeroing; and you will see exactly what I mean.

Make sure you have a sufficient quantity of food, water, ammo, first aid gear, fuel, clothes, etc.  Make sure your survival location is secure, and that your primary and secondary vehicles are fully fueled and in good working order.  Can you build an emergency shelter or start an emergency fire to keep warm?  Check now and make sure that you can, don’t wait for an impending disaster. 

Know your abilities; learn all the survival related things that you can.  Know your strengths and weaknesses and make sure you have a good survival plan and a good alternate survival plan.  You must be adaptable to ever changing situations.  Now get out there and test that field gear.
