I know it's supposed to be ammo and water only but I just don't think I could survive very long without my tactical smoothie maker/coffee grinder. I mean, a man needs to live while he's trying not to die!
I live for others and I answer to God and sometimes to my wife too.

Move shoot and communicate. much more than that is for the movies.
We've got a lot of solid rifle-setups shown here - what do you keep at hand in terms of ammo and other supplies and how do you carry it?
My primary rifle, thanks to CA regulations, is a stock Saiga in 7.62x39. Six mags (10-rounders, unfortunately), trauma kit, glow stick, cleaning kit, flashlight, water and spare ammo are along for the ride in a shoulder bag. Add to that my Glock 19 with RMR sight with several reloads - that's it!

Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe
One of the reasons I like the Redi Mag is that when I grab the rifle there is a reload already there.
Due to my work here I have several tac vests and chest rigs at the house. I generally have loaded mags for everything, batteries, medical supplies, hand held lights and so on just like I have here set up in the same way to grab if needed.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
My rifle is bare bones; a BCM middy with irons and a G2 LED light.
I need to work on support gear like mentioned in the OP...
