Tactical Requisitioning--Contest Entry

Tactical Requisitioning

So you have all your preps and the Shit Hits The Fan. What now?
As you watch the unprepared masses rush the stores and riot in the streets you have the options of bugging out or bugging in. I have another option for your consideration. Tactical Requisitioning (TacReq) for short.
Now I will not endorse unlawful activities or out right theft, but in what may become a long term WROL situation you as the prepared soul know that prepping is never done. So for those of us that wont be running through Wal-mart trying to beat up grannies for the last package or ramen noodles, I have a few other items that a person could obtain with little effort and would probably be overlooked in the initial break down of our society. 

The solar panel and battery packs from road side signs.
   These handy dandy little items are found throughout our country on and around roads, and in some cases construction sites. States towns and police use these systems to power their portable road signs and speed traps,so check any municiple storage sites as well. A person could go through their own town and identify the signs and lights that are using this type of system and have a game plan in place for acquiring them whilst the general population is eating itself.
These panels and battery packs could easily be used to power a water pump or as a battery charging system.

The Tanning bed
   So you like me may have a couple of tanning salons in your area. Well congratulations you have a serious advantage in indoor growing. If you can obtain the contents of a tanning salon, including all the spare bulbs, you can set up an indoor garden using the UV producing lights. And being the good Samaritan that you are. When your friends and neighbors are looking to you for help you can suggest that the community can use one of its larger facilities (i.e. School, rec center, Library) as a community grow house. Thus consolidating resources and security. Please note that a good UV light will be worth a great deal in a WROL scenario. just storing the equipment away for a rainy day will probably payoff in the long or short run.

The Flir system.
   Many people know that the Fire Dept uses a hand held forward looking infrared system to find people in smoke choked structures. Well I'm not saying that fire fighters will just simply abandon their posts but these are men with families to look after as well. And sometimes equipment gets left behind in a panic.
So if you have the chance to obtain this system do so. It will give your nigh time security a huge advantage over any raiding elements looking to use the cover of night to their advantage. OWN THE NIGHT

The Industrial Complex or Business parks
   Before the madness of a SHTF situation descends upon your quiet and peaceful life you may want to map out any industrial complexes or Business parks in your area and see find exactly what types of operations they support. Many stores businesses restaurants and the like all get regular re-supply from warehouse systems and distributor that are located in place called Industrial complexes or business parks.
So whilst your neighbors are fighting for soup in stop-n-shop you and a pre designated team of trusted individuals could roll on into these little known bastions of commerce with a few U-Hauls and see if anything there would serve you and your community well. Please keep in mind that even though the police and any military units will most likely be very busy else where, You will probably not be the first one to think of using this type of facility for re-supply. So Go early, Go ready, and Go once. Any returns to these types of facilities will increase the chances of a hostile encounter, especially after the shelves at Wal-mart are bare.
But that of course is at your discretion. Perhaps you will find a very good reson to return, Thats your call of course.

So these are just a few ideas that were knocking around my in my head. I invite any and all to add to this list of TacReq items that a person or group would find useful to obtain after the panic hits. and as always feedback is welcome. Once again I am not condoning or sugesting that any one go out a commit crimes to add to their preps in a time of plenty, these are just ideas for us to entertain in the event the plenty goes bye-bye.

At first, people will be going after things like food/ass wipes/ electronics (silly people), and all that other shit.


If you live near a good water source, fishing could be a viable option. Nets, hooks, lines, fishin' poles, all of that stuff would not only be for the obvious fishing, but they all can serve a multitude of things.

Netting can be used with natural vegetation and some dyed burlap to make hunting blinds, ghillie suits, camo cover for something you want to hide away (like a car/truck/bike). Plus you can use your mind to make some pretty neat traps for people lol.

Also, blankets. Get lots and lots, as they can be used for so many things. Same as curtains.


And if you can get it, gardening/farming equipment. If you already have some, fine. But get more, more is always better in regards to stuff that'll keep you alive.


Those are just a few that I can think up at the moment. I'll try and get a few more up later.

Realy like this.  Im not the only one thinking like this. 
-Schools.. middle schools/high schools are the best.  Most have solar (like ours,which i helped install)(and the system is a full system feeds a switch gear so you can power a good bit and with a little work store some....)  most have block walls, big rooms and courtyards that arent accessable from the outside.  You have a willing community/or big enough group thats the way to go.  middle and high schools have shops.. metal/wood/ home ec   all shops you can add to........... fields for growing most are fenced in........  gym where kids and people can hang out in safety during bad times.......generators, water filters,  water collection would be the hardest  so some catch basins,tarps, trips down to the local stream. Raised gardens on the roof.. hard to steal........ livestock such as chickens on the roof.....yeah weight weight... i was there when they went over the structure details for us on the solar... the amount they add for snow, and such.. you will be fine.. just spread it out.........  on the highest part and or couple sides build little guard huts.. ones that people cant see in to see if anyone is even there.........


-   jails (first go there with your team to clear out any stragglers  it would have to be late wrol due to the fact it is a facilty which will prob. be maintained for a while)  some would be great.. decommision some of the locks would be great especially with concrete walls  towers are there.. would be fine.. take some of the steal from doors and bars to reinforce the exterior....

run out of  time for now will add more later..

Consider not only tactically accuiring items post SHTF, but also today in your daily life.   One thing we've done as a family is to standardize our transportation.   We all own one or more trucks of the same year ranges and relevant parts compatability.   We all own similar weapons, and store ammunition not only for ourselves, but also in the respective calibers of our family members.  Go to the auctions and find some solar panels on the cheap and use the faults in our bloated system to provide more for your loved ones.   The government buys all this pork, but they don't want the meat, just the fat.

Hotels have loads of food, bedding, electronics, water, etc. Many of them may have solar equipment/generators. Plus, all those little things of soap and shampoo. Usually a large kitchen too, full of all those fun chef things.


If it's a long term WROL situation, you can set up some LP/OP areas in and around the hotel. Hell, you can even strip the building for things like pipes and stuff for running water in different ways, duct works for a whole host of things, and the bath tubs for vegetables.


I would guess that most people that would be in a hotel would probably be gone after a week or so of a WROL event, but extra caution should be taken. Expect some fuckhead to be around any door or corner. If it's a real big one, and you don't have a whole lot of people, I would probably avoid going in at first, but watch it for a week or so, just to be safe.

Antique shops-- Coffee,meat, grain grinders, wash boards, all the stuff your grandmother used.

 Black plastic that contractors put up around an area that their working on. Use to cover windows to block out light and to heat up garden area for early planting.
 Some self storage parks have costumers that temporally store food for a delivery driver to pick up. Check them out.
 Senior centers have coffee, tea, empty and full water jugs. Some have food and snacks. I know one that has a propane tank that must be 350 gallons, you can fill your BBQ tanks from it.
