Ferfal, I believe you are overstating the importance of knives, gu ns, doors, dogs etc.
You are emphasizing it a bit too much - not much - just a little.
You forget to mention one thing: how do you earn money?
Money in its various forms is the most important thing.
Without money you can forget buying everything else.
How do you earn money? How do you plan to earn MORE?

A pocket knfe with some led light attached to it, is just cute, but it cannot buy you anything.
Surviving means being able to feed oneself, having health insurance and a roof over one's head.
With a gun and martial art skills you might survive one day, money makes you survive all 365 days of a year.

My Anonymous friend...
You are underestimating me a bit too much.:)
I’ve insisted more than enough about the importance of money (both paper money and precious metals), even caught a bit of flames from angry survivalists that say it’s just pieces of paper and shiny metal.
Try looking into the Archives for articles regarding the importance of money and gold and how to make money after the crisis.
I’ve written about all those things you’ve mentioned… in the past… when people didn’t seem to thing money was such a big deal.. ;^)
