Is that supposed to be a parody of people doing weird stuff to their guns?
For a parody, the dude goes into massive detail of what he puts in...funny thing is...it really makes sense!

Other than the knife..jeez!

Honestly...I don't think it was meant as a joke!!

That is awesome!!! I have found a new life for my old beater M500.
That plus a small pack in the trunk of the car is the ultimate GHB. Seriously cool stuff.

We had this same discussion over as shotgun world.

My conclusion was that your one point of failure away from having access to NOTHING. you loose the screwdriver to access the butt plate, you cant get to anything.

the idea of the shotgun was to have as many tools and equipment in an easy to manuever package. yes the knife is less useful but like someone said have a bigger one on your belt so boom you got two knives. also one of your two knives could be used as a screwdriver. in a survival situation my shotgun and my knife(s) would not leave my hands.

The point of the exercise imho was to build a single item negating the need for a pack, or, to serve as a last resort were the pack to be lost.
The way I see it is if I lose my weapon I still have my pack, which has all the stuff I need to survive, hypothetically. The premise of this to me is that if I lose my pack but retain my weapon I am still in possession of the basics needed for survival.
Redundancy and multi tiered preparedness strategy at it's most redundant.
I look at it as a much more useful version of the old Rambo POS survival knife with the survival kit in the handle.

Maybe I'm dumb and don't see the point of stuffing as much as you can into those tight storage spaces when you can put all that and more on a fanny pack or some sort of pouch attached to you. I mean, if you're in a situation where you lost everything, wouldn't you also lose the gun too?
Just my mumbling, pay no attention to the user behind the keyboard

Nice ideas and I could see it may be beneficial to some. I would rather just have the shotgun as light as possible with a sling and maybe a flashlight attachment and be as light as possible with all other emergency supplies, ammo on myself or in a pack. 2 many eggs in 1 basket
