I’ve owned a Streamlight Nano for a couple of years now and have found it to be a useful backup light. It has gone with me on several overseas trips and has come in handy a few times when I needed illumination. You can read my review of this useful little LED unit over at Survival Life. SPOILER ALERT: I like it a lot.
I’ve been using PFI’s Z-Blade for several years now and have found them to be VERY handy. Not long ago I decided to write a review on this helpful tool over at Survival Life so hop on over there and give it a look. It is a great tool to have on-hand around the house and in your various kits. I own a bunch of them and they have also proven to be popular gifts. Give it some thought and consider buying some for your preparations.
The first article I wrote for Survival Life was a review of the Sunjack 14w Portable Solar Charger. Everybody should have multiple power backup sources for their battery-powered devices (i.e., cell phones) in case of an extended power outage. If you live in an area that gets a lot of sunlight, a solar battery charger is a good option. Read the review and decide for yourself if the Sunjack is right for you.
Let’s say you own a shotgun for home defense, millions of people do. The next question is what sort of ammunition do you use in aforementioned weapon? My original load-out for my first firearm was #4 birdshot…which isn’t the best round to use. Here is a video that explains what sort of ammunition you should use.
Here’s the deal, none of us knows it all. I will be the first to admit that I got my ammunition choice wrong, along with other things from my early prepping days. That is ok, all of us can live, learn, and adopt to new information. My attitude is that I can always learn something new and apply it to my life. You should do the same.
