    5.56

    I have decided to begin saving ammunition, specifically 5.56 Nato. I'm puzzled as to what brand I should buy. I know that quality varies significantly between brands, and I would like your personal opinion on what brand of 5.56 Nato rounds I can store and depend on them to be ready when I need them. Any advice and opinions are greatly appreciated, Thanks

    My first EDC, Need advice

    I defiantly took the E-tool out almost immediately after I put the bag on, I posted this without even walking around with the bag after I packed it (pretty dumb I know). I am 14 and I don't have much experience with this so a made more than a few errors when packing the bag at first. I was kinda looking for a basic list for a get home bag and I love your ideas. Especially for the fire starter, and as for the knives now I only have the Bowie (working knife), the swiss army knife, and a small gerber folder. I started a small first aid kit with an old kit my mother mad from a camping class she took in college (only some of it was still good). I have a few band-aids, some antiseptic wipes, neosporin, burn ointment, some medical tape, tweezers, small scissors, and some acetaminophen, but i'm plan on adding more to it. I started looking online for some first aid classes. The bag has a whistle on it but i'm going to get the jet scream just in case, and i'm going to start putting together a repair kit. I got a summer job, so my pack should get better as the summer goes on, until now selling paracord bracelets has paid for most of this stuff.

    My first EDC, Need advice

    Hey Guys. I bought a Maxpedition Kodiak Gearslinger and it is my first real EDC pack I have put a few things in it already own. I have a small fleece like blanket (soon to be replaced with a bivy), a SOG bowie, 2 flashlights with 2 sets of extra batteries, a SOG vulcan folding knife, chap stick, 10ft od green paracord, a small mutli tool (generic) need to be upgraded, a swiss army super tinker, a colombia mutli took (lookes like a swiss army knife i keep it because it has a saw), a 25oz aluminum watter bottle (needs to be upgraded), a generic e-tool, an old rifle scope (planning to upgrade to binoculars), 6ft of thick rope, and 250ft of black 550 cord. a little first aid guide, and a set of warm cloths. Next I plan to get a first aid kit, a water bladder, 3 firestarter and a lighter, some mainstay MRE's, a shemagh, a few of those mainstay water packs, and i'm still working on the list. I need you guys' opinion on things to add to it, all advice is extremely appreciated. Thanks.

    Oh, I'm not counting on much. I'm just glad you guys think I stack up better than most people. It's weird when people ask me why I carry a flashlight all the time even during the day, or what paracord is, but that's when I know i'm doing good haha.
