Two is One. One is None.
« on: June 23, 2008, 12:20:41 PM »

"Two is One, One is none," - Clint Smith

...talking about when gear breaks down.

So -
...two pistols.
...two flashlights...

what else do we need two of?

Hmmm...I've heard that phrase used in a different meaning. A wilderness survivalist I used to train said that it meant there should be no unitaskers in your survival kit (accept weapons of course). Everything should have more than one use.

Motorcycles, outdoor grills, firetrucks, WWII fighter aircraft, strippere packs full of ammo, the list is endless. ( and this is just for a weekend)

Don't forget the opposite.  The bad guy always has one more-one more weapon, one more friend, etc.

Actually we used that axiom in the Corps.  I have applied it successfully in the civilian realm as well.  My wife likes to travel back to Africa for photo safaris and loves to view the wild life.  It took me months to convince her to take another camera.  She fought me all the way then gave in.  I was redeemed when she attempted to take a picture with an analog camera and its gears froze.  She completely freaked out but had taken a back up camera because I had insisted. A gold star for me!  I think in packing equipment, it is better to have too much than too little.

  seriously, I would say two guns, two knives, two lights, - god knows there are lots of other things one could need, but that seems like the basic loadout....

Sometimes, especially within an infantryman's load carrying capability, carrying more than one of the same item becomes prohibitive in terms of weight. Presently a British infantyman within either Iraq or Afghan carries aprox 79lb of kit.

32lb body armour... then personal kit, weapon(s), munitions, radio, spare batteries, ECM, water.

Some of that kit may be vehicle based but the solider has to be capable of carrying it.
