I got the guns, mags, ammo, water purification, mre's, matches, fuel bars, pack, and various weapons to arm my neighbors with. This whole thing has me wondering if there is anything I am missing.

Just wonderimg if you're just stowing this away or have something to carry it with(ruck like ALICE or something) if not I would get one. How about a protective mask(gas) Also what about ballistic protection: vests and helmets. I belive the topic of transportation was discussed here a while back. If computers are all knocked out modern cars won't function. I think 1960 and later are computer free.

Some kind of plan to get everyone to a safe place. Communications (don't count on your cell phone working). Contacts in another area if you can't stay where you are.

Sorry, not true. They would have to knock out the chip in YOUR car specifically, which would mean millions of personal visits just to deactivate cars.... nope, dont think so.[whacko] Louis

I believe the post was about EMP bombs that send pulses through the air and destroy computers. Yes it is possible and real.

Thanks, that's what I was looking for

I would like to add a short-wave radio. The reason is that if you remember during the Granada Invasion, Reagan restricted the U.S. news media from any of that stuff until much later. If something awlful happen in the U.S., and you will hear about from the outside. Its cheap, at Fry's they sell for about $50-60U.S.

Some additional items: 1. fuel (for generators, etc...) -- SAFELY stored. 2. NBC (nuclear - biological - chemical warfare) protective gear -- GOOD quality gas mask and filter. NOT those shitty Israeli surplus masks. go to [url]www.asod.org[/url] these guys are GOOD! 3. surefire flashlight w/ ton of lithium batteries. 4. leave your electronic safe UNLOCKED or replace the lock with a mechanical lock. (EMP ! duh....) 5. Potassium Iodide or Iodate (KI or KI03) see the asod link above for that stuff too...
