Who said pellet guns were cheaper? They can be, but for the most badass ones, $400 - $700. I also agree with the comment about if you are temporarily lost or stranded, but not SHTF.

Pellets go for just over a penny so over time it becomes much cheaper, this is is not for SHTF it's for being lost or stranded as it is in no way a combat gun.

Fair enough on the cost, but how do you know when you might become stranded or lost? You'll have to take it every time you go uhhh, wherever you go.

I have a survival kit that I carry if I go in the woods. I have several actually. One is a full backpack with a water bladder in it. I also have a fanny pack set up. I like having the small one because there are times when you dont want to carry a big backpack. If I didnt have the small one I would not have taken anything. The firearm I would use would be the one that was on my hip when I got lost. I am always armed. If I was hunting I would have a rifle and extra ammo anyway.

You will want some type of a fire starter...even if it is a lighter. I carry a lighter and a magnezium fire starter in case the lighter fails. I carry fishing string, sinkers, hooks, aluminumn foil, pocket knife, water purification tablets, bandaids, parachute cord and some other stuff. I dont have it in front of me.

Also a poncho and space blanket. Poncho and paracute cord made a decent shelter in an emergency.

I do about the same Rick. Minimum emergency stuff in a belt pouch and the more serious, bigger, longer-term, and backup stuff in a daypack...

Yeah, you gotta make an Altoids tin survival kit. I put one in the butt stock of my 22lr rifle.
Fire, water, food, shelter. A fire starter, purification tablets, fish hooks, and line, and a heavy duty garbage bag. Obviously the bag wont fit in the tin though. And a small first aid kit. All that stuff will fit in a pouch.

You also would have your EDC knife on you.

That's your basic stuff right there.

I'm putting a different knife other than my EDC, my EDC is a tactical black S&W and the knife I'm putting a digital camo tacforce, I'll show before and after pictures when I'm done.
