What should I buy next?
 
What should I buy next? So far I could feed my family for about 2.5-3 weeks with my preps(I'm 15, I am trying my best) I have plenty of lakes by my house but in my basement I have a bunch of empty 1/2 gallon-1 gallon botles filled with water 2 5 gallon buckets treated and sealed with water in them and 2 cases of water. We have 2 guns(A gsg 1911-22 and a Remington 597 with about 3000rds of ammo. I have a bunch of medical supplies(Gauze, aspirin, gloves, peroxide, band aids, etc) 8-9 flashlights, and around 20 spare batteries for each type of battery. I have a fully stocked bug out bag, 1 set of some inexpensive 10 mile walkie talkies and a garden going in the backyard.

Is there anything important I should get besides more food and water? I dont have an emergency radio yet, should I get one?
Thanks!

Beast. Learn to make fire, by other means not with lighters or matches &improvised camp stoves . Check out YOU TUBE , there are alot of good vids & ALOT of bad vids. Look at Dave Canterbury on YOU TUBE he is a very good instructor & practice what you learn. Also search you tube for bushcraft camp stoves, here are a few of my home mades, 1 wood & 2 alcohol stoves.

Nah, I say go ahead and buy a bunch of matches, or better yet, lighters. They're inexpensive enough. But yeah, learn to make fire under all conditions. Have you tested those "inexpensive" 10-mile radios? That's 10 miles under IDEAL conditions. Find out their true range. If space allows, how about planting some fruit and nut trees/vines/bushes? That's what I'm trying to do. How about a/some bigger guns?

Yeah I need to stock up on matches and lighters. I am pretty good with a fire steel right now but I should practice more. I want and am saving for a mosin nagant and a mossberg 590 or 590a1

The most important thing is not an actual thing, it is knowledge. Don't worry near as much about actual things so much as doing things. Go camping with some friends or family. That's a really good way to find out what things you need. Catch a few fish out of the near by lakes and cook them over a camp fire. What things would make that experience more comfortable? Add those things and go camping again. :)

If you don't already have it get some inexpensive fishing gear.

I find it pretty interesting that a 15 year old is willing and able to take on the responsibility to take care of his family. This is a kid to be proud of.
