Survival Gear you need in your cargo box / toolbox | Part 2 | Tactical Rifleman

Survival Gear you need in your cargo box / toolbox | Part 2 | Tactical Rifleman

all right so we’re out here at the
worst-case-scenario survival school we’re out here with Randy Wurst, Randy
“Rawhide” Wurst and Randy’s the real deal he’s one of four guys that actually
built the classified survival manual for SOCOM all right so we’ve laid out all
the stuff that Randy had in his at the back of his box here Randy I thought I
had a lot of stuff in my Jeep in my suburban this is a lot of stuff I don’t
even know where to start Randy: all right well basically is it’s not
only survivor but emergency gear to extract people take care of emergencies
because I said 90% of your situations would be be based on your vehicle what
we’re going to do I’m not going to tear stuff apart will point the stuff or Karl’ll
point stuff over there and I’ll explain very fast some of the stuff is here
let’s start with some of the most important that Crescent that’s a that’s
a fencing pliers the versatility this tool is one of your most valuable tools
that you can have in your vehicle you’ve got to pick in you got a hammer end got
wire cutters here you got a clamp where you can grab stuff and you have stuff where
you can grab like pulling out tacks and nails and stuff it’s very extremely
versatile always have something like that in your toolbox okay the crescent
wrench I went around to my vehicle this is important and I found out what were
my largest nuts that I had and I got a crescent wrench it was big enough to fit
anything you have to go and do that so if there’s an issue and something else
breaks we’re going to get in sockets at least you have a crescent wrench that
can work now the importance of this tool set here that you’ll see is the fact
that the you don’t need different lengths of sockets because the sockets
go all the way through so if there was a long post that he was going to have to
go through it’ll go all the way through there and down to it extremely important
if you have a socket SiC that you have something like this
in your vehicle okay I can’t express that enough because you want to keep your
vehicle going do not destroy your vehicle if at all possible all right so
let’s start up on Karl’s side that’s just the ball hitch I don’t want to be
breaking my leg with it sticking out so it goes inside there back in the corner
that is a little grill that I use back there and I keep that yes that’s there
so I can cook off of it you see 550 cord fire extinguisher I’ve had my axles
catch on fire always fire extinguishers funnels these are cigarette lighter
fluid 91% alcohol of silicone spray stuff like that’s in there alright that
netting right there Karl that’s the that you cover that you go over so if you’re
carrying something fly out but you can make a shelter out of that alright that
next bag real quick there that’s the MSR would it gravity flow air water
purifier not a filter but that’s a purifier and it will also do gasoline
one of the rare ones that will there in all my vehicles ok?
underneath that is zip ties I don’t have time for it but zip ties are extremely
important I knew a ton of stuff with zip ties towing clamps but also if your
vehicle is off in a precarious position I can clamp it off and tie it off the
tree wouldn’t move the same thing with my cocking hoist
ok these are longer zip ties that you see here real quick these are you drop
something you need to get into something one is a magnet one is a cloth thing you
don’t know remember this is to handle emergency situations so you don’t know
what you’re going to get into you just cover your bases right here is the
coveralls when we talked about large stuff this is big enough for Karl me and
someone else Skinnier but it’s also in the wintertime I get the lined one and
put it in there so that I can keep somebody warm keep them from having
hypothermia this is the those micro towels that you can wipe off
and they dry in seconds these are cables to fasten and tie stuff
down if I if I needed to lock something down I came these are old-school but
this is the canvas water carriers and you put it on our vehicle yeah and it
seals up this is canvas tarps same thing we used on a horses one back home when
we were outfitting and guiding excellent because I always wear gore-tex boots if
I need to go in the water climb trees or rocks I have my five finger shoes okay
ah this is a hundred foot now this this is just for emergency rope this is 100
foot emergency rope that I can get down to a situation to help somebody
Karl has that’s a self contained not only Swiss seat but it’s 380 pound test
line really small line in there and I can rappel with that that’s a complete
set in there excellent Karl: could get real good Randy: yeah all
my um rappelling gear is right in here stuff and all my tie-down stuff I’m not
going to get into it okay this has all my survival gear from slingshots you
name it everything there’s emergency lights on all my gear so you can mark it
if you were leaving it this flashlight sitting outside I’m not going to get
into this but this thing is jammed packed full
there’s duplications on stuff so that I could share stuff with Karl or Mike
behind you and then we could duplicate different jobs I could we could tasks
organize it it isn’t just what you can use is what you can help other people
use that’s what’s in here there’s blankets there’s different types
of clothing but what’s unique about this I’m not going to get into these is that
these are those waterproof dry bags Karl: okay Randy: put all my stuff in the dry bag
extremely important your cables the thing you need to know about it I think
it goes yeah the smaller the number the larger
like number four cable Karl: yeah go large Randy: gives you yeah gives you all the juice
your battery give you this seems old-school but when
everything goes the nuts on yet you need a hand pump okay so that you can pump
your tires up it it will always be there for you what’s in this stuff here is a
Karl: I see a fuel filter you Randy: fuel stuff for making fires and stuff in a sealant for my
tires real quick for my tires now this is interesting this is a hula popper
that floats on top of the water fishing lure but it goes with this small pole
not only can i fish with a small pole but let’s say Karl cause he’s a good shot
he drops a bird in the water now I put it on this line hook that into it and I
throw it out and I can bring the fish okay? Karl: okay don’t have to get wet Randy:
yes there you go that’s exactly why I have that this is just a fillet knife
for fish this is for siphoning okay this is plastic tubing always have that
with you in an emergency I’m not going to get into detail with this is what I use
when I want to boil water something I made Karl: that they’ve got to come in person
to see you use because that thing is awesome, great idea Randy:
okay so let’s go down to what we’ve got here um what I tried to separate it is
some of the hand tools that we’re going to use I know it looks like a lot but if
you’re going to try to extract people or help people in emergencies some of these
tools are specific for that other things or it can help you in survival
situations the files you I know it looks kind of strange having all these
different type of files and stuff but in an emergency situation around vehicles
or equipment there’s a lot of work that I can do that I can get it back up if I
just have the right tool doesn’t take much room that’s why the files and extra
saw blades and saw blades are here and if you’re cutting tools all you have to
have a sharpener to go with it so I always have sharpeners in all my gear
you have to keep your blade sharp next to Karl
that’s a want to break that down but that is a
complete a 22 rifle system it’s also waterproof it floats that stays in my
vehicle for emergency purposes getting going my backpack pretty easy
the 22 shells that are there these this is actually called this is what a shovel
is this is actually a spade okay which I didn’t know that for a long time this is
actual shovel this is a spade what’s unique about this real quick is I made
it so I could take it down but this is fiberglass
so if you see there I you won’t be able to see in the camera I fit a piece
of wood to go down the whole center of this to make this strong because that
fiberglass will break you do have to reinforce that especially in a vehicle
you can dig yourself out you got rocks your problems that’s what this is for
but these are all small enough if I needed to take tools with me I could fit
these and tie these on to my rucksack these are two tools I might take for
that for extraction purposes that’s what the crowbars are for once I get a bite
with something I can use a longer one to take advantage of that so that’s what
the crowbars are for the saws obviously this is just for cutting fine wood this
one is for cutting long wood you know like logs and what not tree limbs
extremely fast and easier to use the saw than it is to a chop and stuff like that
for vines and stuff that’s in a way a good machete and CRKT does a good job on
this one because of the handle the way it’s built most all the energy is
focused right here so that I’m making the tool do the work also where the
handle is made the material it absorbs the shock into my hand extremely
important if you’re using it and you need to thicker heavier blade to take
the punishment okay the axe this is the Fisher’s now you
have to have your own covers made what’s important about this axes it’s actually
I’m not going to go and take it down if you look at it that’s got a splitting
edge that comes back here so not only can I
chop with it but I can split with it alright they’re all my tools are razor
sharp if you look there that’s a cut for me putting this back in he could Karl
could probably shave with any of these knives here, or these blade tools
excuse me even my shovels are sharpened and stuff on the edges I don’t make them
razor sharp but I sharpen them I just got done using and digging you can see
but you see how that sharpened everything neat Karl: Like it was just bought Randy: yeah now
this is a small axe real important where I have it as all steel the advantages of
this if I need to crack in and start cutting metal away to get to it start
prying with it I need something can take the punishment so this whole axe is
metal the whole shank in it but it’s rubberized to help absorb the shock okay
now this doesn’t seem like much but you’re in you’re in the forced removing
you need to get on this back road stuffs in a way this is one of those tree
trimmer systems I can saw cut and cuts the fun way so it’s clearing stuff out
of your way you may have to take a different route out than you came in
that’s a 22 inch I do this is by Caltech and this is a 22 mag know that
this is collapse down the magazine goes into the handle and it carries like 30
rounds into it it’s a 22 mag you see all small this is phenomenal little weapon
we’ve broken it down pretty easy to break down and clean
I love the the 22 Magnum even better than I do the regular 22 it has a lot
more versatility this is a new system I like it very much I haven’t used a lot
but its impressed me so far now the other thing on this table real quick they’ll be in all my gear these are
candles I make up and because the size of it I have three different wicks this
is my keys for making fires so far without fail of 100% success in any
weather conditions you give me building fires with my techniques and
using my candles alright that’s the stuff that I carry inside my vehicle it
seems a lot but it all does fit in there okay it all has a purpose and a reason
you will take and decide for what room you have where you are what you want to
do what you want to pack but everything you see in this vehicle everything
you’ll see from this point on for the lower 48 will be can be used in the
lower 48 I can’t guarantee what can be used like
in Alaska necessarily down in Hawaii but the 48 states there isn’t anything here
you can’t use that that you’ll see in this vehicle or backpacks or am in any my
other gear alright Karl: that’s great information Randy this is awesome

  1. Uhh uhh this is uhh umm uhh yeah, a hamster castrater is a necessity, uhh, real quick, uhh. Guys, I really want to like this but it feels like you two are looking through somebody else's gear for the first time.

  2. Another great video guys.

    One thing I would add, if I may, for any vehicle is to replace all belts and hoses when you purchase it and put the old hoses and belts, and tools used to replace them, in a bag for the trunk for backups. Same for all fuses and relays.

    Also having a pair of panty hose that you can wrap around your air cleaner when going through a heavily smoke, ash, of fallout area can help in a pinch.

    Love the vids guys, keep em coming!

  3. Wow. That's a ton of stuff.

    I make sure I have at least jumper Cables , 2 – 30ft tow straps , gas siphon , blankets and then bug out bag with gear

  4. unrealistic, waaay too much gear, and the assumption that your vehicle will always have access to gas, sorry guys, in a real shtf scenario gas will run out very quick and there won't be any gas tankers coming, your vehicle will be left stranded to be scavenged. can you carry all that gear away if you have to? If your talking stuck in a snow storm or broken down in the boonies fine, but you could do that with much less.

  5. Way too much gear in my opinion and the weight of the gear on the back will cost a lot of petrol so if your trying to keep your car running your doing the complete wrong thing and you have like 3 saws just take 1 multi purpose one and if your car breaks down you can't carry all of that you should only have the amount of a duffle bag at most otherwise it's pointless my bag is Tiny and Carry 72+ hours of gear and it only weighs like 30 lbs and I have a week long bag that weighs 40lbs

  6. For those wondering the ".22 rifle system" at 8:53 is a Henry AR-7 Survival Rifle, originally designed in '57 and Henry still manufactures them today. Very cool system.

  7. Don't know why so many are critical to the fact Mr Wurst doesn't want to expand on all these items? This is a brief overview, what do you expect?
    Great video by what appear to be very competent men, and Green Berets! Be grateful for the free tips and advice A-Holes!!

  8. I can see an emergencies situation unfold: "actually, I'm not going to get into that right now." (Waits for backup.)

  9. Pass thru sockets NOTE they are useless in many applications due to their thickness for reaching vital areas. Nice for some things,you're far better off with slim profile regular socket sets. Source:auto builder 20yrs

  10. This guy is a tool! Karl looks unimpressed. Way to much stuff and very unrealistic. He also muzzled sweeper himself, the cameraman and host. I wouldn’t take his survival class after seeing this.

  11. nice video..1 piece of gear i got my wife is a portable jump starter super light easy to use and its got plugs for charging your phone and even a small air pump for flats…i got it for my wife but i throw it into the truck when i go to the woods.

  12. Special forces my ass. USCG here, and we are taught to survive with very little, taught to improvise and use ingenuity to survive, not to carry the whole Home Depot store with us.

  13. You literally don't need 3/4 of that shit. This is more of a dramatized fantasy you're living then real life situation. Stop watching so many movies..

  14. Mine is very simple. Warm jacket, 4 gals of water, granola bars, trail mix & etc, signaling mirror & LASER Pointer … and a Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) as a last resort. Carry just enough to survive a week knowing that PLB will rescue me. For the cost of all this equipment he could have bought a PLB and may be even a satellite phone … and better gas mileage.

  15. Good stuff! Something else I'd recommend is a set of snap-on locking jaw pliers PWZ2
    I have yet to see these slip on anything. Sometimes you get slippage with adjustable pliers so it would be nice to have something for the tighter items. I've used them to replace a spring on a m998 with no issue. The lockup you get with them is unparalleled. Give them a look might me something you would like to put in your kit.

  16. Very usefull equipment BUT unfortunatly i live in ARIZONA and i am hispanic and having all that junk and weapons in my vehicle it an absolute reason to get murdered by THE POLICE SPECIFICALLY MESA POLICE OFFICERS .

  17. Is there a video that shows how he boils water? It would be awesome to see it in person, but I live about 1000+ miles from him.

  18. With a background as this gentleman's, he's got every scenario covered. I'd definitely like to have him driving by if I'm ever in a bind. Well done. Thank you for sharing both video, knowledge and personal load out.

  19. I was waiting for him to pull out orange safety cones, hard hat, generator, work lights. geez! like I'm going to keep guns in my truck that's just stupid!!! a fishing pole, I'm not going fishing if I break down. I'm going to fix my truck. Tell ya what I have. AAA card, cell phone and portable cell phone charger. now real world… spare fuses, 12v test light, tire plug kit ( not fix a flat ), cigarette plug in air compressor, headlamp, tire tools/Jack. small tool kit ( Just the basics ). 3M super 33 electrical tape, tow strap, jumper cables, and depending where you live… sun hat & sunglasses, rain suit, cold weather gear. don't over complicate things people. if your in snow then a small collapsible snow shovel like youd see with snowmobiles is a good idea and of course a snow scraper. if you have questions post them that's what we're here for is to learn from others experiences. tier 1 I do enjoy your videos, so don't take it the wrong way. it's just that is off his rocker. super dave 7th sfg out!

  20. Look into the Japanese Silky saws, they are AMAZING. I just got the Big Boy XL and it's a BEAST and super light. My next tool is a Katana Boy, which is a tree slayer. I'm currently building up a classic Bronco with complete kit and a 4 x 4 trailer. I have restored a one man, 5 foot push pull saw (it can be used by two men to more effect with the moveable second handle) that will be included but the Silky saws will usually get the job done with a lot less effort. Also fire steel and a good trail knife for making feather sticks, etc

  21. kinda late, but WAAAAY to many people or shitting on this video. its a very nice overview of practical equipment to manage any practical task in a backwoods environment. someone rolls a car, falls off a cliff while hiking, clearing paths, fixing minor vehicle breakdowns, getting stranded in the wood for whatever reason, he has the equipment to handle it. He's also not here to tell you what you need, because he doesn't know what you need for your environment, potential situation, etc. He's just here to give you an idea of what you might need, and what a potential use for it is.

  22. When you have the option of using either a shovel, or a spade, you're not building an emergency survival kit, you're moving your garage into your vehicle.

  23. great video. Made me rethink my entire truck situation, and I watched the war belt and the bullet vest videos by the guy on the left side? and those were super great too. thanks guys, very valuable information.

  24. It is absolutely one of my biggest pet peeves to listen to someone talk about something acting like they have so much knowledge but consistently mispronouncing the names of shit. I see a lot of improvement that needs to be done I see a lot of tools that could be gotten rid of because they make a multi-tool that replaces four or five of these tools that he has. It would take days to find anything you're looking for through the giant pile of shit that he has. Multi-purpose is so much better I'm not even going to finish watching this video. Really thought I would see something that I had not thought of yet but apparently not.

  25. I keep a survival trap, a military 90% wool blanket, 1 gallon of water, an axe, a cold steel special forces shovel, Hiking boots, a Streamlight PolyStinger with charging cradle, an ABC fire extinguisher, a 8,000 lb hand winch with 50 feet of 10,000 lb test strap, and a self built trama kit and a self built tool kit.

    It all fits under or behind the seat of my 2012 Ford F-150 Super Crew Cab. Out of sight and out of mind.

  26. Zip ties! I need to remember those…I always seem to forget 'em. Great video-many useful things mentioned here.

  27. No extra fuel. And no cleaning kit for the weapons…. Honest opinion. That’s way to to much crap to be carrying around everyday. I like that channel. But these two vid were poorly. Done.

  28. Nice kit it's worth keeping JB weld,radiator fluid,flares,motor oil,food,water,gas,chainsaw,playing cards,small tent,to much to name all my kit in my tool box is huge,oh and never forget old army wool blankets they work great!

  29. This guy looks like he just set up his own yard sale in the back of his truck.thats wayyyy too much stuff to be he looks very inexperienced by the way he handles the items and I see a lot of cheap junk.aside from that,all that junk and you’re missing a lot of regular items that the majority of us consider a emergency kit.a simple leatherman could replace half that do you have a set of full size files and not a compass lmao buy less and get Higher quality.a dodge dakota and kel tec? Come on dude

  30. No compass,gps,tire plug kit,backup power bank for cell phone,radios,jerry cans of fuel,car battery charger,no quality lights/batteries,junk firearms,no handgun which a concealable firearm is more desirable in some situations.a g19 with light and extra g18 mags (loaded) is much better than the kel tec 22mag.most of your items aren’t emergency at all.its more of homestead type tools.most of that crap you can leave at ur house in packs and grab when you need don’t need 28 axes and 38 cheap handsaws and 94 hand files lmao unless your emergency is that you need to build furniture.get a leatherman,1 hatchet or just a quality bushcraft knife to replace all that stuff.this was really funny to watch.the other guy had a look on his face like “what did I get myself into” 😆

  31. I'm all for being prepared but this is total overkill. Have some tools and a first aid kit but a grill to cook with? Really?

  32. This has gone beyond survival, and way into "old-man prepper" territory….I mean, hes got a sawed-off shovel for petes sake.

  33. As a US Army Veteran, Bushman growing up in the wilds of the Yukon & a custom leather/saddle maker (Beaver Mountain Works). I suggest all your axe & hatchet covers that you make or have made use these 4 designs.

    #1: Be made of a leather thick enough for the size of the tool. ie. hatchet a 5 to 7 oz & axes 7-9 oz. This helps support the tool & falls into the next design issue.

    #2: Have a closure system that opens up & moves out of the way while you take the cover off the blade. Most accidents to a rescuer, happen in stressful situations when opening up,a tool to use. you can see in the above video when he was taking the covers off, how close his fingers got to the very sharp blades because, the closure flap kept the cover from sliding down with resistance from the closure.

    #3: Make the cover with a gusset at the blade end. This protects the shape blade with steel to leather. Protects the stitching & rivets. (gusset should be 1/2" wide & at least a 10oz & I recommend hand stitched) Also it helps in the extraction of the tool from the cover.

    #4: Have a connection loop like a belt loop or a D ring attached on the cover. this gives you the ability to carry or attach the tool without restrictions when taking the tool out of the cover, while connected to a carrying devise.

    You can make these covers easy yourself.

    Remember if it don't function in the bush why have it, dead men ain't winning a beauty contest.

  34. I have much to say about emergencies as I've been in several emergency situations; however, I'm not going to get into it

  35. That is not a spade. I know people say that from the shape. A. Spade has a straight blade some a slight radius never a point like the suit of cards.

  36. thanks for the info and your service guys. PS I thought I got criticized for all the stuff I carried LOL

  37. I can garentee my survival too with a Walmart on wheels and a weapons cache, these guys have more stuff in there truck then I do in my house.

  38. It's always funny how many people spend their days thinking they're gonna be driving to Walmart one day and somehow end up in the Himalayas with the North Korean government coming after them

  39. Didn't see anything resembling fluids or spare gimme out parts for the vehicle oil, pond water (coolant), a max level oil that could be used as diff, trans, transfer-case fluid when in a pinch. I understand that he has a wealth of knowledge and could kill the entire world with a broke pinky in the North Pole but damn you can give a 6 year old a screw driver and they will figure out 15 different ways how to use it vs a 75 year old that only knows 5. show the tools that anyone can buy that he obviously had and let people figure it out. He don't have to go into details about how HE would use it lol.
