Other gear under the magnifying glass includes the Geigerrig Hydration System and the Barrett Optical Ranging Scope.

We also look at the pros and cons of the M4 versus the MP5, examine the effects of dehydration on alertness and range safety, discuss the suitability of the AR carbine as a "bug out" long gun, and go over some tips for "Survival on the Cheap" with ten preps you can do for under $20.
