At ease, Civilians.
My name is, Lt. “Burnt Oak,”
and I’m here to shape you into the APACS breed
APACS stands for Advance Post Apocalyptic Civilian Survivor
and there are three elements that will make an ordinary civilian, an APAC Survivor.
you must have a minimal suvival kit to maximize your surviving potential
this includes: flashlights, CB and AM / FM radios.
number three offensive and defensive tactics
those of which I will cover later in this video.
By the end of this video
you will have the information needed
to make you america’s best post
Now let’s get started.
Alright, listen up ! Because I’m going to go through this quickly
your first layer of gear should be
You need knee braces
wrist straps, a “back brace” belt
a head cover
and use cut-up socks to cover exposed parts of your body
we’re also going to utilize soccer shin guards
and utilize this
necklace-type whistle accompanied with magnesium bar
with this shaving kit
This is how it’s going to look.
The braces at the joints will prevent sprains
while the shin guard will help with climbing
and protecting the Achille’s tendon.
And always carry a whistle with you.
A whistle is a hundred times louder than an injured voice.
Maximize your funds by purchasing a variable head cover.
that covers your head in three stages:
Stage one, an open face, head cover.
Stage two, a closed face, head cover
and Stage three, this can be pulled down
as a scarf
When you team that up with a winter beanie
And now, you’re surviving.
You can also use the closed face cover
along with a surgical mask
to maximize filtration.
Now, you’re primary outfit will consist of a utility belt,
with re-enforce knee caps,
and a winter beanie.
Here’s what it should look like.
Remember to keep your outfit colors dark, and drab.
Avoid, white red yellow orange and blue colors.
Part of a good defense, is concealment.
you’re secondary outfit will consist of desert-ready gear
a wide-brim hat,
and here’s where our shaving kit pouch
will come in handy:
wer’re going to put
and cut-up socks
including the beanie
and then we’ll carry these both, the gloves
and this pouch, with these caribiner clips
that will be attached to the belt
and uh… here’s what it should look like.
Be sure to include SPF 30 sunblock,
insect repellent and a snake bite.
you should also include sunglasses to
complete your desert outfit.
Now, you’re third outfit should consist of rain-ready gear
including a space-blanket, lined pancho
with a cord, for a bel,
and this water-proof cover
for our Black-Hawk camel pack.
Here’s what it should look like.
Don’t bother packing an umbrella
it will only snag in heavy brush.
Remember to pack pocket tissues for both
first-aid and toiletry.
Now we’re at the heart of our survival kit
My choice is the Black Hawk camel pack
and you should remove the water pouch
I have it over here for later
and we’re going to utilize the space
where the water pouch goes
to house our military style shovel
and this is going to be used to
dig fox holes and small trenches.
So we’re going to put that in the pack right here
we’re also going to put in
a tube tent
this is going to be our tent
it’s simply a plastic-style tube
that hangs across
this nylon cord
and you can make a triangle shape tube
and we have this
heated mat used for flooring
I use this for flooring
inside the tube tent.
So we’ll go ahead and put these inside
the Black Hawk pack along with the shovel
where the water pouch would have been
oh, it’s easier to put the plastic in first so that the emergency blankets can mesh together
and so there goes the tube tent
make sure all the pieces fall down to the bottom of the pack
now add the shovel
see there it goes, that’s a lot better.
and then tuck this in the inside lip
that would have covered
the top of the water pouch.
So we’ve got our shovel,
the tube tent and flooring is in there.
I have a garden spade used as a shovel
I have it for a quick draw grab over the shoulder
it’s to bury one’s
bowell movements so your “movements” can’t be tracked
it can be important, you might no think so
but if it helps, why not ?
Now, let’s look at the scapula
or main pocket of the back pack
and there we’re going to put
a shammy towel
and then we’ll include
a water purifier
like this micro-water purifier
that uses a drip system
and it has filters, a tube,
and handle for the pump.
so we’re going to tuck this
up here, up high to make space
and underneath that we’re going to pack
what’s called an Espit stove
it uses small chemical blocks
to burn here in the middle
light the block
and you can put a cup, or pot here to boil water.
So put that in there
along with some extra fuel blocks
and then seal it up
with the back portion of the
Black Hawk back pack.
And so far you have all that
Remember to include the nylon cord
I’ll put that
in the main pocket
I’m going to add two more space blankets in this pouch
can’t have too many of these
and they go right in there
you can also use them to cover up
the door openings of the tube tent
just tie one on each side
and leave one with a corner that loose that opens like a door.
Since I have room I’ll put another two space blankets in the pocket
and it goes here in the side
Then I’m going to add a signal mirror,
the wear and tear
or damage to your boots.
those fit here
in these small pockets, where I also keep a miniature Bible.
a case of thread and sewing needles.
Use the thread and needles to repair clothing and tent.
and those go right in here
I have a contact container
and a tube of tooth ache gel.
and these small items fit well in the pocket.
I also include the snow adapter for the walking stick, it fits here
Don’t forget your First Aid Kits.
Go ahead and get your own. I won’t go through that since you can buy completed kits.
Remember to include small travel tooth brush and tooth paste.
Those will go in the middle right here
I’m going to
start and close the pouch up.
I like to include tape
both for uh…
both for First Aid and map repairs
those will go up here
just on top.
Here’s some more fuel blocks.
And here’s some powder,
foot and talcum powder for any rashes. More fuel blocks and
and uh… pocket tissues.
zip that up
and you have a lot of gear here in this
all necessary stuff
no space wasted, all space used
I also include paper clips,
toe nail clippers
and some straps I might be able to use
uh… it’s always good to trim your nails
to keep yourself from punching holes in your socks or giving yourself foot damage
and now that your backpack is complete
let’s look at this part
this is where we have out desert shorts,
the rain pancho,
and the water pouch. This is a food tube that I’ll go over later
extra plastic bags
for any tent repairs
wrap all that up
in the back pack’s, water proof cover
that will cover the pack
when it rains.
I’ll twist this up like this
put these straps underneath
to keep everything from coming undone
and then after wrapping this up
I’ll attach this to the bottom of the
Black Hawk pack
Now, if you’re wondering how I can connect this
to the bottom of the Black Haek
I made modifications to the blackhawk
I sewed on two nylon straps to the bottom pocket using nylon thread
and in the end I sewed on these hooks, these plastic hooks
the hooks catch on to the straps
and then I just tighten all the straps to hold down this bundle.
Now, I have a bug out back pack that’s ready to go
at a moment’s notice
with plenty of survival equipment.
This is how your
survival back pack should look, with a small profile.
Now, let’s upgrade our outfit with simple, but imortant
We’re going to add a hook,
large and small
pliers with multi-tools.
along with some surgical gloves I keep inside
along with this walking stick.
Let’s go ahead and add the hook
to the outside of the pack using these
MOLE style straps.
I can further secure the hook
by adding a velcro strap of my own
and I’ll tie that around it
to make sure the hook stays
attached to the Black Hawk back pack.
And with the velcro strap over the hook the hook stays here.
Then I can add the rope
at the bottom
and still using these MOLE straps
I can use more velcro straps
to tie the rope
against the bottome of the
Black Hawk back pack.
So i’ll go ahead and put this on right now
and after tightening everything up
I’ve just added a hook and rope
bug out back pack.
Now, I’ll attached the bottom bundle to the hooks
and then you can see what the whole thing looks like
Remeber to add these plier-style multi-tools
I’ve got a large one and a small one attache to the pack and one on my ankle
and this is the
smaller version of the plier-type, multi-tool.
and ths small one I attach to
the packs strap
the chest, cross strap
uh… that we have here on our Black Hawk
and I keep it here for easy access or
for a quick draw
so I can have my multi-tooks at the ready.
As soon as I get this on
I’ll show you how you can
put walking stick through
So here’ s the back pack
and here’s my multi-tool
at the chest, ready. One of these will go on my left ankle, the other on my right ankle
Remember to include a retractabl walking stick
that shortens and lengthens
so i can get variable heights and
when this is not in use I can
stuff it between my back and back pack
And now you’re all set and ready to go.
shelter water fire food
We know we have the shelter in our back pack, the tent
the floor mat
along with several space blankets
and a shovel for digging a den.
So pretty much, our shelter is packed
for water, we will utilize these military canteens
each with its own cup
and it’s own cover pouch
and uh… these will be filled with water
and then these get attached to the
sides of the utility belt
and that’s two quarts of water here
and then with this waist pouch
we can fill more containers with water here
in these side containers
and this pouch will contain city maps right here
so there’s maps in this pocket
this really neat fanny pack is going to attach
to the back of the Black Hawk pack like that
and there you go
there’s the hook and rope
we also have the water purifier from the top portion of the pack,
this is the drip system water purifier
and this one is the pump style purifier
So what i would do
when collecting water, I would drip,
and then boil, cool and then add a water purifying tablet before using.
So there’s shelter
Fire … is real simple
you always want to make sure you have a lighter with you and when it runs out
you can use the hollow handle of a knife
the tube in the handle of a knife
and keep water proof matches in there
there’s some right there with a little bit of tooth picks included for kindling.
and of course you should have a magnesium chip
when you scrape off slivers of magnesium you can ignite by making sparks with a knife
just scrape against the flint bar right here and get your fire started
as far as food goes
let’s go ahead and move on
try to keep tennis ball
containers like this
so you can store
MRE meals or beef jerky
which should last for a long time so long as you don’t make a meal of it
then go ahead and cover the container with a sock
so it’s not obvious we have food on us
and then have some other
try to steal it from you
And I’m going to use some of these velcro straps
and attach this container of beef jerky
to the top of the back pack
adding more survival equipment
and improving your chances of survival
at this point here
and of course these will be in their
there’s your back pack coming together little by little
and let’s move on to this food tube
which we have
packed in the rain gear,
here’s the food tube
and I’ll open this up to show you, see it’s covered with socks
and this is also an extra pair of socks if I need ’em or
extra means of filtrating water.
So when I pop this tube out
and basically all it is
is a mail tube
I converted to hold
all in this hiking
or camping tube
and on the other side is a tube of plain peanut butter
creamy peanut butter
this is the stuff you want
when you’re in a survival situation and you need immediate protein, fat and vitamins.
So there you have it, shelter
water, fire and food
when collecting electrical equipment
for your survival gear
always try to remember solar power is the best, like this solar powered
which has a solar panel right here that will collect sunlight
and room light and can be constantly charged
uh… it’s a great example of
making your funds
work for you by getting an item that lasts longer than might otherwise
such as this flashlight
that runs on batteries
uh… I keep this one because I was able to get
lense dimmer so when searching
or scavaging through an area
I don’t attract a lot of attention as I would using a high beam flashlight so I have a flashlight
with a red lense acting as a dimmer
preventing the attraction of too much attention
so I can move a lot more stealthier
when doing my search
uh… moving on to radios, this is your CB radio
I keep the atenae in this pouch here
and your CB radio is going to give you contact
abilites to talk as well as receive
so this item is important: remember Channel 9 is your emerbency channel.
and it also has a weather channel that gives you access to a government run station
not only give you information on the weather
information as well. So you want this with you.
I keep the attenae here along with
the insect repellent and sunblock
I have a battery tester to make sure batteries are operating
properly as well as the snake bite kit.
Remember to have pen and pencils to right down notes
and I put all lthat in this pouch which is attached the utility belt.
and then uh…
here’s another battery operated
this one is different, so I won’t be able to talk or transmit
but i can still recieve and listen it has AM/FM
so I can listen to
uh… citizen, or city stations
as well as short-wave transmissions so if anyone is using CBs
I can at least listen
even though I can’t
talk back when using this one.
You’re best bet though for
a long term radio
is going to be a hand cranked or solar power radio such as this one
which is dedicated to receiving radio transmisions only
I get AM/FM access
uh… plus wave band channels.
and he’s the solar panel right here so it can charge during the day.
or I can pull out this handle here
and I can crank it. Here you can see the red light so it’s charging
the internal battery inside
and uh… here’s the antennae
and see ? [radio music]
Now you have a long term radio and I can put this
in my side pouch
and this will be at my side on the utility belt
you’ll see later on when I assemble everything
so that’s everything here
and those are you’re electrical equipments.
When gathering your electrical equipment
remember to consider the power source
stay away from
odd cartridges and large batteries that
can neither be replaced
nor recharged during a survival situation.
Stick with AA batteries
AAA batteries and 9volt rechargeable batteries, all represented here
they can all be recharged on this solar power
which allows you to open this
place your batteires and then there’s an indicator here to let you
know when the batteries are fully charged.
I keep the instructions so I can properly use this device
and uh… to try and keep it working for as long as possible
I keep it in this plastic bag
so as to avoid
any kind of
And the charger goes in this millitary pouch
which is going to be
attached to the back side of the utility belt.
Now I also have room to add this straight edge razor
what’s known as a
and this is it here and it allows me to keep the straight edge sharp
so I can keep a clean shaven
and provide some comfort
for a surival situation.
So the batteries will obviously fit in here
covered of course
with a form of plastic
and then I’ll add another
this is the micro purifier I mentioned earlier
all the pieces
for the equipment
it’s all kept right here
and so I’ll add that in here
and at this time
I’m going to go ahead
take the desert hat and
after rolling it up
inside this pack.
and always have it with me for when it’s
time to change into desert gear.
the back of his
has straps that fit inside the utility belt
and can be locked in.
Keeping your gear compact and stealthy.
Now we’ve come to three further additions to your survival kit.
Try to include a powerful pair of binoculars
You can easily add this to the side of your utility belt.
It’s a great way to look ahead for roads
or to spot danger or a possible ambush.
Also include these wet wipes which are good
for short, cleaning sessions that will
help keep yourself hygienic healthy.
This is a ten pack
and it has soapy, or antibacterial
dampness to them
and they work well for taking a quick bath.
Finally, we have this
potassium iodine pills
they’re Iodate pills, actually
and they’re used to protect the thyroid from radiation exposure
during a radioactive fallout.
or in radioactive area.
Be sure not to take these unless advised
by the government but they’re always
good have in your kit.
With these three additions, you’ve increased your survival chances greatly.
Alright, your defensive tactics will revolve around
I have some material here that’s going to held distort the familiar image
of the area around the head and shoulders
so we’re going to use
this cut-up material
to help conceal
what would otherwise be
a familiar and recognizable silouhette
as you saw earlier, I have the 5’x
10′ camouflage material stuffed in
this tennis ball container.
i went ahead and stuffed it all inside
i’m going to cover it with a sock
so nobody knows I have all this great
uh… surviving stuff that they might want to take
Now, I’m going to attach this using more velcro straps
to my black hawk back pack
Now I can carry my
along with my back pack
I like to fold
and then I actually stuff them inside
my beanie to not only carry them
but to also provide
like padding for my head should I fall
Believe me it fits, you just have to work with it
and then with the safety goggles
it will hold everything nice and tight
and now I have camouflage material at the ready
I also have this camouflage shtick …
uh… excuse me .. .camouflage stick
and we’ll use that on our face to
add more effectiveness to the
camouflage pieces when we’re wearing them.
That’s your defensive tactics.
concealment and camouflage.
And now we’ve come to my favorite part of the show .. knives.
On this table are various types of knives that I would have in my survival gear.
let’s start at the tracker one
this is the work horse of my outfit
and various instruments on this knife
allow for versatility
and a lot of work usage …
this is a work horse and you can do a lot of chopping with this blade
and building knotch traps as well as processing game
uh… I like it’s weight and it’s versatility
and particularly it’s weight.
I like to keep this knife in this
which I’ll wear on the side of my utility belt
and it has a pocket here for the sharpening
and I keep a small bottle of oil inside as well
as the sharpening stone
and I also added this file-style sharpener
and oil rag
So I can
clean my knives after sharpening
and that goes right in there
will realize that
tracker one-style knife. life which is a little
less specific in it’s detail
and this weapon I would keep right here as a quick draw
and so it can
come down like a hatchet, chopping power
On the same note, this would be my battle knife
which i would i have attached
to my my utility
belt right here
for quick draw with the left hand
and it would come out like that
it’s a filet
and serated style type of survival knife.
this is the one that also has the open
handle for storing matches.
The next knives I have are these throwing knives which of course are good for throwing
I have different weights
and I sprayed the handles black so
in their sheaths they don’r reflect light.
these I like to keep because if I’m not throwing them
i can always attach
a stick to them
and it makes a nice spear head.
That’s a good spear head for hunting and protection.
This is a folding pocket knife which
I would keep strapped to my ankle
it opens with a quick flip
it’s a good sharp knife.
and this Swiss Army pocket knife is a knife I would actually keep in my pocket knife
is not only for the various tools that come with the Swiss Army knife
but if I want to
scrape something or to take a sample this
would be the knife I would use
as opposed to
damaging or ruining any of my other knives.
last but not least are these throwing spikes
and these are always good not only for
but you can stab them in the ground
and look at that
you’ve got your snares
or your trap for game.
you can also put these
and have them come down like teeth
So these are always good to have.
This starts your offensive tactics
the final section of our offensive tactics involves guns.
“there’s no point in having a survival kit if someone can take it from you”
So our choices are handguns
shotguns and automatics.
Let’s start off with the 9mm.
The 9mm is a powerful gun
used mainly for stopping power
it has a clip loading action
so its fast.
The next type of handgun is your revolver styp guns.
and these guns take longer to load
but they do have
a powerful punch
worth the hassle.
You can have both
and your .357 magnum here.
for a quick draw.
Next is the shotgun.
This is a pump action shotgun
and it takes two types of rounds
I recommend the buck shot
for uh… hunting
and uh… the slug tyle rounds for uh…
Now this house
a powerful punch
but it’s large and cumbersome.
So if you choose this weapon
uh… you should be very good at it as well as know how to clean it.
uh… finally we have the Mac10 represented here
this open bolt system
is very powerful
CIA issued, American made.
it comes with a military suppressor firing .45 caliber rounds
it’s fast, powerful
and compact and if you remove the suppressor
you have an even more compact weapon
for engaging enemies.
The only problem with this weapon though
is that it shoots out a large amount of rounds
in a short amount of time
so you have to be careful and frugal with your firing.
Remember, no matter what weapon
you’ll need a cleaning kit
and extra ammo
so choose well and choose the weapon that best suits you.
Last but definitely no least are your hunting weapons.
Let’s start with the slingshot.
the sling shot is the least impressive
but most underestimated hunting weapon
It fires these
steel ball bearings
and for hunting small game like birds
and uh… squirrels
you almost can’t compare with any other weapon out there
since these ball bearings are small but travel
and you’ll get a better shot in with these
as opposed to using a bow and arrow
where there’s a lot fo surface area traveling that
your target may be able to see.
Also the best thing about the slingshot
is that not only is it compact
but it will also shoot rocks pebbles and
so technically you’re never without ammo.
one of my favorites is what’s known as
the specter take down bow
and I have some take down arrows in here
that can be assembled
to facilitate the use of this bow.
the pieces for it
are inside this nylon quiver.
so here’s the bow itself
now I’ll take out the rest of the arrow pieces
and the bow and arrows are very simple to assemble.
I’ll go ahead and do a quick demonstration right now
Once I get these
I’m going to use the bow string here
and string the bow of course
just hook this at the bottom here
to start it off
and i”m going to
and get it to bend up here and down there
and as you can see there’s the bow
and I’ll go ahead
and construct one of these arrows here
And now I have a bow and arrow for larger game.
Last, I just chose the hunting type I want
and then I can go ahead and arm my bow here
make sure I get a nice
and you’re all set
And these are your hunting weapons.
My final tip of the day involves
and a fishing kit.
Snare wire is simple.
Just go to your local hardware store
and buy some
framing wire which comes rolled up
it’s small and compact
its strong and
you have plenty of threads to work with.
Use this for setting up snares and traps to catch game.
It’s so small I just drop it in my pouch like that.
Now, let’s zoom in on our fishing kit.
Your fishing kit involves four elements:
and these fishing glow sticks.
The lights are used when you don’t have any bait to put on the hook
these lights are simple
they attach to your hook very easy.
they have this
removable plastic shell
which you put the hook through here
and then you crack this
and this will light up
with the hook nearby
then you add the weight
to the string and the string
to the hook and light.
And now you’re surviving.
Now to store your fishing kit
use various packaging bags
like this to keep everything close together.
All put this all in the pouch compartment
and with all that
look how thin and compact that is
right behind the radio
zip that up
and I’ll put these in the front
pocket right here
Now I have a fishing kit
that increases my chances for survival.
