You are forgetting many other essential items such as:
.Guns, Ammo (small caliber and Large), also maybe a crossbow or Bow in case you run out of ammo
.Food for at least a year, so you have time to grow your crops or learn your hunting skills.
.Land to live off, and grow crops or keep livestock
.Water, and plenty of it, also water purification tablets, and filters
.Shelter, depending on the situation, it may need to be underground or maybe just a small hidden structure if the enviroment is OK.
.Potassium Iodide pills in case of radiation sickness, helps with the Thyriod gland from getting cancer
.Magnesium, can be used for fire, also a main ingreident for Gun powder
.Common Sense, can't learn it, you either have it or your screwed
.Plenty of warm clothing, good boots, gloves, rain gear, hunting gear,
.Probably the most important is the need for a Group of people to stick together, that way everyone has a job to do, everyone can help somehow, the
down fall is that it will take more food to do this, but its probably the only way to live, you could then split people into security, hunting,
preparing food, cleaning, gathering water, etc.....
The list could go on forever, you can never be fully prepared for a catastrophic event, unless you know whats coming, and even then, the supplies just
might not be there, and thats when your common sense skills kick in, and you start to adapt and make your own supplies.
