If your new to the survival game,it can be a bit overwhelming.Take a minute and think of what it is your prepping for? Natural disasters like Hurricanes,tornadoes,flooding,earthquakes.
Or possibly an economic collapse,maybe all the talk of the govt implementing martial law at some point.
Or fears of (name one)Russia,China,Iran, or some as yet unknown enemy attacking America?
Any and all of these are things that could possibly happen.So where do You start? Well in my humble opinion,It depends a good deal on your financial situation.But regardless of rich or poor.I say start with food and water.They will be needed in any situation you can think of.
Start by building a food storage pantry.Buy things you normally eat.Once you have a good supply of regular food.Then you can buy long term survival food.Dehydrated,etc.
A basic set of firearms,one handgun,one .22lr rifle,shotgun of your choice,I would recommend 12ga due to fact that they are common.16 or 20ga are fine choices as well.Ammo for all weapons.
Water is a basic of life,no water- no life.Store as much as possible.They make very good (but expensive) containers specifically for this,or clean out and recycle 2liter pop bottles.A good filter in case of city water being out for a long time.
To me these three are essential. From there you can build up.Seeds to grow your own food.Tools will be needed.Fire making skills.Clothes,making,mending.Alternative heating sources will be needed.
First aid and medical supplies and knowledge could be critical.
Books and info on things that will apply to your situation,remember there may be no internet or power even if its up.
Just a quick primer,and don't forget all the good folks in my blog links they have a ton of usefull info to share.
