Chill your troll.

Most bitcoin accepting stores are internet services.

Past that, mostly electronics.

Food and condoms can be had at http://www.bitmunchies.com/ - that satisfies 2 of your requests.

Where have you found survivalist gear for sale?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

Holy shit.  Weak-form unskilled troll.  You need to develop some finesse and subtlety.

And if there is actually any BTC market for survivalist gear, I might actually be able to provide.  I know I can get MREs.  And ammo cans (for caching stuff.)  What else is anyone interested in? 

I'm on the lookout for something that I can retail in BTC.  PM me if you've got any ideas.

Let's set aside the obviousness of this troll situation for a minute, and play along.

Let's agree that 99% of shops REALLY ARE survivalists.

Survivalists believe the whole world is going to collapse.

When the Apocalypse comes, who is going to have internet and bitcoins?

So you see, even if we assume this person is correct about the first part, their ultimate conclusion is still nonsense.

Conclusions:
Mild to moderate retardation, and/or Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.

Yes.  Anyone willing to invite a metal box full of tiny gnomes and electricity into their house is surely a nutjob.

Because BitCoin is a solution in search of a problem.  The only people who are amped about making purchases in absolute secrecy are civil libertarians and people interested in purchasing illegal or illicit goods.

Currency speculators, not people who want to buy bitcoins for use in commerce, are driving the market. You guys are passing around a grenade.  Great for everyone until you're holding BTC when the grenade goes off.

That's awful kind of you to be concerned about us like that, I really appreciate it.  When I'm snuggling up to my pillow tonight, I'm going to pretend it's your warm body next to mine.  You are my little spoon.

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.
