You would be surprised what you can make outta a small tarp , rope and a axe . We used to do this when I was a kid and we camped all weekend that way usually 3-6 of us kids all armed with small back packs, matches or lighter ,axes, rope ,mess kit, sleeping bags and several bags of beans and usually several packages of hot dogs , One can make a damn fine shelter out of those few items rope , axe and small tarp .

Ok
Rifle: My Ruger 77 Scout Rifle in .308
Lighter to start fires
My best sharpened axe
If weight were a factor , or if I would not be in a combat situation, I'd take my Marlin 1894 in .357, although at under 100 yrds the Marlin would do the job as well.

If you can find some lead (like at a tire shop), you can make your own projectiles and cut some patches from scrap cotton cloth. It is possible, but maybe not smart, to make your own blackpowder as well.

ANother one of these dopey threads eh? OK Short term!? AR Carbine too, otherwise, probably a Ruger 77 All-Weather in .22 Mag w/the same seven lbs. of FMJ ammo Locutus constrained himself to, and the poncho.
And since you have no idea what else I keep in my truck, how do you decide it isn't 3-4 weeks? Do you even have any idea where I'll be???

A Katadyne filter, 10X binoculars, two all season sleeping bags, A "Swede" stove and fuel, folding shovel, axe, bow saw (30 inch)...The usual stuff for anyone living in this part of the country.

And if you come along to "help" me out, be sure to keep an eye open for my neighbors. Some of them can't afford fancy AR-15s, so they bring along their scoped .300 magnums. And since some of them are ranchers, they usually keep a case of dynamite handy!
