100 Items You Need, That DISAPPEAR FIRST During War

100 Items You Need, That DISAPPEAR FIRST During War
This list was made by a person who survived the Bosnian War. It shows the 100 items to disappear first in war.  As Americans decide whether or not the government of the State of New York should be allowed to continue to exist, over the pending Trump arrest, perhaps this list may come in handy if Civil War erupts.

# worst case scenarios,oldschool 2023-03-22 02:03
We have all talked about prepping. And a lot of us are prepped at least to the best of our ability or to what our finances have allowed.
But there are a couple of worst case scenarios that have not been brought up too often, and that is the Chance of an invasion by China from the north, west, and south. And the other being a false flag dirty bomb in your area where the gov goons come rolling threw all decked out in their Hazmat suits demanding that everyone evacuate the area. They will have the transportation all set up and you will be transported to a place of their choosing (FEMA camp) so that you may "stay safe" until the area is cleared. (Which in reality is never).

Each scenario being quite different from the other, but what would your survival plan be in such a dire situation as these.
# MachineMachine 2023-03-21 10:37
I have established a triple digit Prepers network in my county and two others. We are not perfect but we continue to push forward while creating strong bonds.

I must say I am impressed with many of the comments on this posting. I formed this network in 18 out of 83 counties in my state. I withdrew from 15 counties due to a lack of interest in finding dedicated individuals to lead their counties. So I'm staying local.

Staying local in a Rural area allows you to be more efficient in vetting, everyone knows each other.

We, you, can't stand alone, be picky and develope a Tribe (s). So much to say, but not enough time.

I just had to say that I'm impressed with the comments.

Great recommendations.
If you live in a hot desert climate, you can easily charge solar "generators" with panels outside. A good solar generator (really a battery) will run a swamp cooler, but you will need additional water. A countertop ice maker can be used to produce ice.
Solar or battery operated lights for the outside are great too. I use solar ones except for the part of the side yard that doesn't get sun.

From a post by Scottd…
“ 2) When in your small car, make sure you can find your keys, smokes, flash light, booze...what ever, when all your life and sleeping bags are "all over the map."
As a camping hack, we took an over-the-door shoe organizer and separated the top two rows of pockets. We removed the pockets on the top row, now using it as a flap. We secured a long shoelace on each end , at the “fold” . Filling the bottom row pockets with those necessary but easy to misplace car items , we tied this to our vehicle/tent (choose where based on your needs) at night. During the day, we fold the flap over any items that remain in the pockets, roll it up, tie w/laces and drop in a backseat bag/bin/etc.

A few of you might want a 'refresher' on basic gun rules - you just never know when they might come in handy....- the rules the U.S. Marines follow are especially noteworthy.

P.S. Some will make you smile but remember they all make a lot of sense because they were all written with experience.

Gun Rules

1. "The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win / cheat if necessary."

2. The purpose of fighting is to win.

3. "Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."

4. "Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets. If you’re ever killed with your own gun, it had better be because you were out-numbered by superior forces & firepower, your gun was empty, you were out of ammo, you were held down by at least six goons, your gun was ripped from your hands and THEN, they beat you to death with it."

5. "Shoot what's available, as long as it's available, until something else becomes available."

6. "Don't shoot fast, shoot good."

7. "You can say 'stop' or 'alto' or use any other word you think will work, but I've found that a large bore muzzle pointed at someone's head is pretty much the universal language."

8. "You have the rest of your life to solve your problems. How long you live depends on how well you do it."

9. "You cannot save the planet but you may be able to save yourself and your family."

10. There is no possible victory in defense only.

11. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

12. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just shoot you.

13. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

14. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

15. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

16. 'The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him. G. K. Chesterton

17. "Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not...." Thomas Jefferson

18. Never let someone or something that threatens you get within ‘arms length’ of your position.

A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him 'Why do you carry a 45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because they don't make a 46.'

The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady said: 'Sheriff, I see you’re wearing your sidearm. Are you expecting trouble?' 'No ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle.'


1. You are not John Wayne or superman. 2. Suppressive fire -- doesn't. 3. If it's stupid but works, it isn't stupid.
4. When in doubt, empty the magazine…. Maybe. 5. Never share a fighting hole with anyone braver than you are.
6. Never forget your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.
7. If your attack is going really well, it's an ambush.
8. No plan survives the first contact intact. 9. All five second grenade fuses will burn down in three seconds. 10. When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend. 11. Try to look unimportant, because the bad guys may be low on ammo. 12. Don't look conspicuous -- it draws fire.
13. Don't draw fire; it irritates the people around you.
14. If you are forward of your position, the artillery will always fall short.
15. The enemy diversion you are ignoring is the main attack. 16. The important things are always simple. 17. The simple things are always hard. 18. The easy way is always mined. 19. If you are short of everything except enemy, you’re in combat. 20. When you have secured an area, don't forget to tell the enemy.
210. No combat ready unit has ever passed inspection. 22. If the enemy is in range, so are you.
23. Incoming fire has the right-of-way. 24. The only thing as accurate as incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire. 25. Friendly fire - isn't.
26. Tracers work BOTH ways.
27. Radios will fail as soon as you desperately need fire support. 28. Anything you do can get you shot -- including doing nothing. 29. If you make it too tough for the enemy to get in you can't get out.
30. When both sides are convinced they are about to lose, they're both right.
31. Professional soldiers are predictable, but the world is full of amateurs.
32. Never tell the Platoon Sergeant you have nothing to do.


1. Bring a gun. Even better, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.
2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap compared to your life.
3. Only hits count.
4. If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough or using cover correctly.
5. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. [Lateral and diagonal movement are best.]
6. Ten years from now, no one will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
7. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating, reloading, and running.
8. Accuracy is relative. [Most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on the "pucker factor" rather than the inherent accuracy of the gun.]
9. Use a weapon that works every time. [All skill is in vain when an angel pisses in the flintlock of your musket.]
10. Always cheat; always win. If you walk away, it was a fair fight. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
11. Always have a plan.
12. Always have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.
13. Even back-up plans can become worthless 10 seconds into a combat engagement.
14. Use cover or concealment as much as possible. The visible target should be in FRONT of your gun.
15. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
16. Don't drop your guard.
17. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.
18. Watch their hands. Hands kill. [In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them].
19. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH for as long as it takes.
20. The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.
21. Be polite. Be professional. But have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
22. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
23. Your best option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
+1 # Rules of EngagementMarlena 2023-03-19 19:08
Soldier wisdom is for soldiers. Soldiers are for war. War is unrestricted widespread killing. Even mafiosi are restrained and selective in their killing lest they destroy their own business model and invite all hell down on themselves. Audie Murphy in peacetime is just a psychopath. Good people are most vulnerable when the situation is ambiguous. Be able to discern the situation and apply rational rules of engagement. This is prone to error so be prepared to find yourself on the wrong side of law enforcement. If you think they are reliably honorable, fair and reasonable you've got some learning to do.

Great list Hal, I think I have got nearly all but one line, the bottom one "Goats/chickens".

Like many people I do not have room for goats, or chickens which they are now saying have to be registered because of "avian flue". More government restrictions to prevent self sufficiency!

I have just purchased CCTV though I am not sure whether it will be of any use, may give some deterrence effect, or me some warning, but thought get it while you still can.

Your previous video is very scary for someone in a urban city area, like me, I do not have a country bolt hole, but I do have a bike, trailer and camping gear as an alternative to the car.

I cannot believe these people: they ignore the real criminals, then go after Trump: is there no end to their deceitful and wicked actions. Did you see that pastor in Canada telling the police to get out of his church!

Thanks Hal. Great list. Am cleaning out old papers, to keep my mind a little busy. Prayers for you all, i may have prepped not quite right, but have a lot from starting a few years ago. Came across one of Hal's first message/list on prep items and it is close to these suggestions. Heart felt prayers for all who have lost so much already, but we have the knowledge of Christ, and He is coming. Suggestion on having a few friends to be back to back with, but no one, really, no one in our court ever really talks to each other, are all new neighbors within last 5 years and cant figure if they are on same page as me and my husband. Any suggestions how to figure that out would be welcome.We arent stupid people, just very wary and not too trusting of current admin.

One person or family is not going to have everything that they need. Material or skill wise and skills are sorely missing in this list.

Matthew 25:3 They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

"Everyone has a plan until they are punched in the face." Mike Tyson.

We have a parcel of land in SE Oklahoma but live 12 hrs by car in Galveston TX. Most all our preps are here in TX. We have much of what is on the list above. However, in a pinch, we would have to decide do we bug in here in TX or haul ( what we could) to OK when it may be unsafe to do so. Stay or go? The property is off grid. My wife is informed and elderly. My senior father is set up on the property but in a small unfinished cabin.

You will find that all your preps will add up to more than you can haul in one truck. Do we pre stage our stuff up there? If so, what if we are stuck here in Galveston? It doesn't do us much good up there if we are stuck 12 hrs away down here.

Expect the unexpected. If you have to "bug out" how long will that "grab bag" last? Stuff breaks, things wear out. Shit breaks.

One thing I have learned over the years is this:

1)... Events don't happen as fast as you believe they are. Back in 2008, "experts" were sounding the alarm that the financial system was collapsing and to prepare. We're they wrong? Today, IF they wanted to save the financial banking system, they would simply pass a new law ( just like the new laws passed in 2008/2009) and nationalize the banks. Guarantees will be made and Americans will blissfully go about their business. What choice do they have?

2)... Never underestimate the ability of the government to stretch things out to keep things going.

3)... Being early isn't always being right even if what you expected does eventually come to pass. I have $6k worth of storable food that is 90% spoiled and useless from years ago when we just knew things were going to collapse.

4)... Timing is everything. Unless you have a crystal ball at your disposal that is 100% accurate, expect to be early.

5)... Do what you can when you can do it. Peace of mind is invaluable. Be flexible. If you are early, accept it but don't give up and fall into complacently. We all die. However it's a matter of when and HOW. That's basically what you are preparing for. A peaceful death, full, warm and safe.

6)... Believe the opposite of what the government authorities and MSM tell you. Know that 80% of the alternative media exaggerates the news for clicks.

7)... Successful investors are always early and often go against what the crowd believes is true. The crowd is always LATE. Being late is always more expensive than being early. More risky too.

I have been a "pepper" since the mid 1990's. What I have collected over the years has collected dust, spoiled or has been lost. However, I continue to replace, add too and repair what I have. I may die tomorrow but I know SOMEONE will use what I have saved.

Finally understand that being early is not being wrong. It's insurance. You will be proven right one day. When it happens, know that things will be bad LONGER that you prepared for. Food will spoil, expire and bugs will eat your beans, rice and flour. Your yeast will go bad, your seeds will not sprout. It won't be easy in any case.

But you will be light-years ahead of your neighbors giving your family a fighting chance.

You save it until you need it. Most of the emergency food is just that. Emergency food. Freeze dried meat, butter, nut mix, beans, rice, drink mix etc. You don't know it's bad until you open the can. What would you rather have. A juicy steak today or a 10 year old freeze dried can of soup mix? Again, emergency food.

But I have bought that much + just in the last 2 years so I'm pretty good on the freeze dried food. I also have solar water purifiers and a lot of the other stuff on the list.

Until that day that things go south...the Saudi's stopped the petrodollar a few weeks ago, so the gov't won't be able to borrow like it has for years, not to mention exporting out inflation to other dollar using countries (everyone up till now, that's going away). If we still have time, consider it lucky we've gotten this far. Keep what you have in Galveston and as best you can, double what you have in Galveston and once you have enough for a pod, order a pod, load it up, have it delivered to your Dad's place and load it into the storage shed you've built in the meantime.

+2 # Prepping LogisticsMarlena 2023-03-18 19:33
So...the above list a warehouse. Here are some thoughts:
1) Unless you already use it: try not to buy it until you're pretty sure things are going fully bad in the next few days--in your area.
2) Be ready with your list and your cash and a way to get it home. Just ahead of the normies.
3) The difference between hoarding and prepping is organization. It takes work and expense just to maintain order and function of your preps. A waste if you never need 'em.
4) You can do security preps ahead...reinforced strikes, storm doors, window film, self-defense provisions--warning and trip wire traps. Save the window bars, barbed wire and sandbags for know...extreme crazy.
5) Have some restraints. Handcuffs, zip ties, duct tape, etc. If you subdue an attacker and have no way to restrain him, you'll have to kill him--or take the chance you'll have to subdue him again. You may not win twice or be able to suffer the injuries. If you do kill him I'd think you'd need to move the body and conceal it. Plan accordingly.

I misinterpreted this article as it does indeed list resources that

try and store up. That would not be realistic.

When I was sailing with my in-laws, she showed me how to wash clothes without a washer.
She had a big bucket and a toilet plunger just for clothes. Put the clothes in the bucket, water and a little detergent. Then she would just start plunging the plunger. To my amazement it works and works well. If water is hard to find is probably wouldn’t waste it in another rinse bucket and would forego the detergent.
+6 # RE: Clothes Cleaning “Pro” tip! ;) 2023-03-18 18:50
We cut out a hole in the bucket lid to accommodate the plunger handle. Cuts down on the water splash ; )

+12 # If One Must Bug OutScottd 2023-03-18 18:44
One sentence overview:

1) Lost my electrical business in February

2) Eviction notice came mid-February

3) Evicted 15th of March...own car; little money; now living in my car with my Darling Cheryl; we're in our early sixties and it is absolutely out here. No weapons; not a lot of room in the car.

4) Those are the facts and after 3-days, after 3-days, things are getting way Bleak! Phone turned off; no internet or possibility/capability to use phone, and we go to Barnes and Noble for internet, and then to the Local library for internet.

What a bummer! I used to be a valuable member of society, but at last, I am just a tax slave that, which is pretty much F&%# for me, left to either survive, or die.

Lessons learn:

1) Don't over pack...take only those thing that are useful, and readily accessible. It is amazing how, in the middle of the night when it is cold and raining, a good pair of shoes and jacket (so one can get out of the car to take a "you know what") will serve you well.

2) When in your small car, make sure you can find your keys, smokes, flash light, booze...what ever, when all your life and sleeping bags are "all over the map."

Look this is too depressing to go on. The list above looks like a 5-star hotel to me now, but the reality is...if ain't got the space, all of this is just academic.

Would you please post an answer to them to DRIVE TO LAS VEGAS. They can get Welfare there to start and they CAN EASILY get jobs at any of the casinos. In addition, the Nevada Security Guard Card is easy to get and they will never, ever be out of work.

Skills to fix things ..... very valuable... one should pick from these items for their own needs ......
having a good wood stove that heats water and provides and oven and cook top would pretty much do away with having all those propane bottles around .....and then ..... getting them filled ......
If ANY of those items are easy to come by ..... put them in storage ...... YOU NEVER THROW ANYTHING AWAY...... to someone ....they have a value and barter will be the way of trade.
Another GREAT item to have is Bishes Liquid fabric glue .... you can actually put cloth items together as good as any stitch. Get the small bottles cause once opened they tend to start to set up , unless you put that bottle down inside another empty ....mayonnaise jar.
+2 # Dollars into something not dollarsKevin 2023-03-18 17:42
Dollars into something not dollars...

Since people have different budgets, skills and abilities, not to mention physical limitations that come with age, injury and some even lack the desire or the time required to learn new skills.

Consider a “Solar Suitcase,” 12 volt battery(s) and a DC to AC pure sine-wave inverter, about 2,000+ watts. Lot’s of advantages with limited downside. They are portable, easy to use, and some, like the 35 pound Renogy 200 Watt Solar Suitcase, include the solar charge converter and can work with all types of 12 volt batteries. This, plus sunshine, gives you the ability to generate at least some electricity.

Generators can provide temporary AC power, but use lots of fuel, they get hot, are loud, emit CO2 and they require maintenance. Good on you if you have a generator, but do you have extra fuel, oil and air filters for it if you need to rely on it for some time. What happens when the fuel is gone?

Look for UL listed components whenever possible. Chinese are notorious for 'over-rating' inverters, wire, breakers, fuses, etc. Also, look carefully at the watt ratings of extension cords.

Just my thoughts.
