9 Must-Have Gun Accessories for Doomsday Survival

9 Must-Have Gun Accessories for Doomsday Survival

Irma replays, earthquake flurries, political unrest, and oh yes, zombies. These are perilous times. No longer are you the nutcase (you clicked on this article, didn't you?). You're the norm, the prudent solid citizen preparing for the time when the evening jaunt to the corner grocer may be fraught with peril that has little to do with the indigestion left by those heavenly spicy mini-tacos.


Now, the happy-in-their-iPad-bubble unprepared are the nutcases. Disaster looms, and whether it's via super volcano or a super virus, it pays to be prepared. The following will help you ensure that your bug-out-bag is not only properly equipped to feed and protect you and yours, but to maintain the tools that do so.

By now, we all have (or should have) our 72-hour kits packed and ready to go. Most of these kits include food and water, first aid, heat/light source and a change of clothing. In addition to these supplies, many people consider firearms to be an essential part of their kit; however, proper firearm supplies are often omitted from bug-out bag shakedown lists.

On the plus side, most shooters already know and own everything that they should include; for the most part, it's the same stuff we keep in our range bags - minus the melted Snickers bar and used ear plugs. Just remember, all items should be able to serve multiple purposes to be as space/weight efficient as possible.
