    the captains hook is a bit larger than i'd like but these are probably gonna be attached to the outside of the bag so theres a bit of wiggle room. anyways thx in advance for the help

    Mini pro-bar looks fairly strait forward.

    Why do you need to breach doors when it is much easier to breech windows. Once you are inside you can worry about getting the door open. Personally, I would leave the doors intact. I don't need starving dogs coming in the building. I can easily defend a window to keep out two leg starving dogs.

    Stanley Fubar, or a Dead On Annihilator about $25 on Amazon. They will open just about anything, and cost a bunch less.

    I'd go for the Annihilator unless you're left handed. They cocked the nail puller end the wrong way for righties, and it will bite your wrist if you ever actually swing it like a hammer.

    You'd rather tote around several more pounds of steel rather than improvise a tool on the spot?

    yes i would. because you can't always improvise.

    Sure you can. It just depends on how creative you are. And it seems to me that the less rules there are, the more creative you can be.

    When the time comes, I bet you'll prefer toting around less weight. Or something more useful.

    Prolly carrying more than a leg infantryman is a bad Idea in a SHTF scenario, 40 lb ruck is plenty to hump and realistically, any heavier and its just a boat anchor. A small hand tool kit and a good quality multi purpose tool in a belt holster is about all the weight a person on foot needs to be dragging for tools.

    Buy a decent chain and have a trailer hitch put on your truck. Stores get broke into around here all the time. No one uses some gizmo off amazon. They either back a pick up through the door or jerk it off with a chain and truck.

    I have a 69" pry bar that weighs 16 lb. It can bust rocks that stop a full size tractor cold. I would still use a truck to break into a building.

    get a lockaid "gun" and a check out youtube vids about lockpicking. there's no need to lug around that much weight and bulk, make all that noise, have the building leaking rain, wind and cold. You might want to stay there/return, ya know.

    you'll probably get shot or hit a booby trap. This looting better be done at night. Just use the BOB to get to your local water supply, where you have a partially dug, well concealed shelter, and some buried food and gear. Tools can be part of that gear. But the looting better wait for many months, until most people are dead. Otherwise, the risk outweighs any likely reward.
