The Tactical Survivalist understands that having the right equipment and the right training leads to the right outcome. When in combat situations, whether it be a urban assault, field operations or survival hunting, having the right plan is essential. While TV and movies may portary the ultimate soldier as being able to improvise with endless options, when comparing to real life situations from urban SWAT response teams to desert warefare in Afghanistan - the truth reveals quite a different situation.
The Tactician is one who not only prepares with the right tactical equipment, but also the right planning to execute an operation as either the initiator or respondant to an attack. Starting with the basic rules of combat combined with physical and psychological preparedness the tactical fighter is ready for most forms of agressive confrontation. Not only do they rely on weaponry, but also supportive equipment to assist throughout the entire operation. Coupled with the addition of unarmed combat skills along with being able to recognize potentially dangerous situations the tactical fighter learns to fight with both mind and body to complete their mission.

Emergency preparedness and the abilty to react in a logical and calm way regardless of the situation is essential to a positive outcome. Where the average person may see a desert as a death sentence, the survivalist will see opportunity for survival from creating shelter to finding food and water sources to sustain life with basic bushcraft skills and ultimately, evade the situation and return to normality. This is more that simply reading a survival guide, it comes from full emergency preparedness from practicing survivalist techniques to accumulating specific survival equipment. The Tactical Survivalist provides you the necessary combat gear and survival gear along with survival guides and bushcraft skills plus practical military style unarmed training information such as Krav Maga used by the Israeli Defense Forces to help you succeed in your combat mission or survival response situation at home or abroad.

Getting in, getting the job done, and getting out again can be partially calculated by the strength of a plan along with it's supporting equipment. Past this, it lies in the hands of a soldiers ability and lastly, fate.
Should fate play it's nasty part and the mission deviate from the plan, survivalism needs to kick in - and fast! Not only do your skills and physical performance play an important part in carrying out a tactical operation but they also need to help you escape, evade and elude any threat whether they be human, environmental or other. This is where survival skills are an essential part of the initial mission plan. From hand to hand combat to emergency medical and first aid proceedures along with standard bushcraft and wilderness survival or desert survival skills, this can be often the difference between leaving the situation alive - or not...

Weapons of war and tools of survival - all developed through human necessity
War, hunting and survivalism have very close ties throughout history. Each can show innovation that has crossed over to another to provide a better way in which to complete an operation or better tools for which to do it with. Today, affordable military quality equipment is readily available at reasonable prices and most of the areas now share reasonably equal footing on what is available for a particular purpose (weapons excluded for obvious reasons - though de-tuned equivalents are often avaialble). With this in mind there is no reson to put yourself in a situation unprepared, your life depends on it!
