    Along with learning to be quite you should learn situational awareness. Be aware of your surroundings know what is going on around you it will help keep you alive. Avoiding bad situations is better than being caught in the middle of one.

  14. Here's an idea for your sewing kit. Add a heavy upholstery needle a curved one and a straight one. Put in a piece of 550 cord about a foot long. You can use the inner nylon pieces as thread for heavy duty mending needs.

    New Survival Series

    Being in the medical field and several deployments a bullet of any Cal will do damage. 22CAL will stop you. That's why I all get a 22, light you can carry lots of ammo that is not real expensive. Cheaper to fire 3 rounds of 22 than 1 round of big Cal ammo. Like everyone here we know value how to get the most out of a buck. Hopefully the first thing anyone who is preparing for something learns is situational awareness. Know what is going on around you. You learn this and you are way ahead of lots of people.
  16. Got a complete set of oral airways for my large med bag. I have been going thu it and replacing and updating items.
  17. Picked up a 7 pack of lighters, box of strike anywhere matches. I was also looking for a 22cal rifle, any suggestions.

  20. Did you get a stainless or bluer barrel? I'm saving for a 10/22 and could use some advice.

    What emergency scenario are you prepping for?!?

    Tropical storm Irene in Vt. No had seen flooding like that since the the 40's. I had no water for around 3 days, but was prepared because I always have water on hand. Be prepared you never know what's coming or when.
