Rudolph and the Japanese WW2 holdouts are a wealth of survival info, if for no other reason than they show that mindset, the ability to improvise and a basic kit will get you through, even though it sucks.

If no one else has mentioned it, I will: Ground penetrating radar. In other words, they run the probe over the surface, and 'see' the shape, depth, etc of anything under ground.

Lots of old school manuals. How old school? Hows a manual for cooks from the 1890s for starters? Lots of neat manuals, although the site is a bit of a pain in the ass to download from. I can't use Firefox, I have to use Internet Explorer.

The thing with the Miller decision as I understood it was one, Miller or his lawyers didn't even show up to argue before the Court, and two, they Court's decision was that it should go back and a lower court should look at it again. That never happened. So Miller vs. US really didn't decide anything.

i disagree that garands would be the way to go. a rifle with big calibre, yes, but with a garand it is too easy to whack off all of your 8 rounds in quick sucession, then be left in a tight spot when you have to reload. A Kar98 however, you must pick your shots, and your rifle is far less complicat...

A mortar wouldn't be difficult to build, nor unsafe to fire, except that it's verboten under the law-bore over half inch, explosives in excess of 1/4 ounce, etc. Ragnar Benson built one for his book "Big Book of Homemade Weapons" along with rounds of ammo for it, and it worked.

Right now, I'd be screwed because I live in suburbia, and money is tight.

If I was starting from the ground up, I'd look at a gas or electric powered sump or sewage pump and some hose, along with putting in a pond, maybe even go with a full blown sprinkler system.

How many places in the home country are as dusty as Iraq/A-stan?

How many civilian survivalists are likely to fire as many rounds as done in this test between cleanings?

No gun is 100% reliable, that's why you learn to clear your malfs and drive on.
