The Ultimate Shotgun for Surviving in the Wilderness (or a Zombie Apocalypse)


Survival and Preparedness instructor Creek Stewart has created the ultimate shotgun/survival kit for surviving the wilderness or a zombie apocalypse.

Taking into account that one’s own survival needs can be divided into the following five categories:

– Water
– Fire
– Shelter
– Signaling
– Food

Creek took a Mossberg 500 pump-action shotgun and added the following items:

  • two side saddles for quick reloading (and a total shotgun carrying capacity of 19 — the shotgun itself holds 7+1) containing cartridges with bird shot, 00 buck shot, slugs and signal flares.
  • a 5″ bayonet knife mounted to the barrel
  • a tactical flashlight/compass combo mounted to the barrel
  • a hollow buttstock containing an emergency survival kit with baking pan, trash bag, fishing kit, 2 non-lubricated condoms (for water storage), water purification taps, reflective survival blanket , a small first-aid kit, Carmex lip balm, a whistle, small Bic lighter and snare wire
  • a hollow vertical grip containing a small fire-starting kit (matches, striker, steel wool, WetFire brand fire starting material)
  • a hollow pistol grip containing a multi-tool
  • a saw that can be attached between the buttstock and gun handle for cutting down wood
  • a braided paracord gun sling
  • American flag bandana
  • and custom plaque that reads “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For thou art with me”

The result is one badass shotgun that would make any character from a George Romero movie kill for.
