The below personal tactical gear list is taken from a proposal I put together for counterinsurgency / tactical team in West Africa a few years ago, this should give you a few hints on kit etc.

Understanding a little about snipers and methods used in countering snipers is an essential part of your operational planning and preparations.
This is where you need to have a strategy already worked out for deploying your concealed carry weapon in a hostile situation
When travelling, working from a vehicle or in a hostile environment it makes sense to keep all your important and essential equipment in a bug out bag.
Selecting good routes is extremely important part of your security planning especially in hostile areas or in times of civil unrest.
You use a method known as instinctive – or point- shooting. Instinctive shooting is simple- you point the gun and pull the trigger.
In times of civil unrest or if you’re traveling to a potentially hostile area your vehicle security and travel must be planned for and taken seriously.
I am always being asked which is better for close quarters self-defense a gun or a knife. Both are deadly weapons if used properly
The bad guys will have put together a mental plan and strategy for attacking you, so shouldn’t you have a plan for dealing with confrontations?
I am always being asked for my advice about what equipment should be taken on trips to out of the way places. With the below items you should be able to operate for extended periods of time.
Use of force is a last resort and should be avoided at all costs, fighting is for amateurs.
Residential security must be taken very seriously. In times of civil unrest looters will be looking to target any location that has valuables, weapons or assets that they can use and that has minimal security, this means most residential properties
The subjects that should be included in your tactical training are defensive shooting both left and right-handed, drawing from concealed carry, using different fire positions and use of cover.
There may be situations if you are trained and armed when you will have to take aggressive action and counter-attack those who are attacking you.
You should first of all work out a plan of action that you will take in the case of an active shooter or terrorist attack. Do this for your home, business and for when you are out and about in public.
If you are working in the center of a large city, like London or New York, or are working in the emerging markets, where bomb scares are not unusual, it is possible that you may get caught up in an Improvised Explosive Device incident.
Here are some basic instructions on how to avoid getting captured if you manage to escape from kidnappers, terrorists or from a location where things have gone very wrong.
You do not have to have expensive patterns to give you good camouflage and concealment, a gray dress shirt and a pair of light khaki pants is way more effective than tactical Tim dressed in SWAT black!
