  1. I know, good sir. I was joking about Ethan Allen. Thanks for the tip.
  2. Ethan Allen?? lol jk
  3. Look into LifeBoat Food or the SOS EFR. it comes in packs of 9 and serve about 300-400 calories each. They can last 5years or so and withstand up to 300 degrees in the sun.
  4. This is NOT the video I was talking about BUT it is useful:
  5. I noticed a lot people focus on the go-bag or bugout-bag for SHTF scenarios. Sure, its nice to have guns, ammo, MRE's/rations and life straws, but what if there's an attack? or an explosion? How will you treat the people around you that may have been injured? There was a dope video of a guy that had a decent set-up for just that. If I can ever find it again, I will post it below in the comments. Here is a list of items to consider in your rescue kit: Feel free to add or correct whatever you see below. Ace bandages Abdominal pads Silk medical tape roll Benadryl – always good to include even if you or your party doesn’t have any known allergies Imodium – highly underrated Triangular bandages Saline eye drops Rolled gauze Butterfly bandages – useful for deep lacerations Safety pins – good for keeping dressings and bandages in place if you need to get creative Moleskin – versatile Advil or Ibuprofen Gloves – these will help you stay clean and safe when treating wounds Gauze pads Trauma shears Needle & thread – stored in isopropyl alcohol Wound irrigation syringes White petroleum jelly or Vaseline – very versatile (keep in a small container) Chest seals – necessary for sucking chest wounds - sometimes a plastic card can be used in a pinch Antibiotics – Bactrim or Doxycycline Thermometer Aspirin Nasopharyngeal airway – 28 FR Z-fold gauze Hydrocortisone cream Tweezers – always useful for wound care A reference guide – this will make sure you’re doing things the right way and don’t make mistakes SAM splint – a portable and convenient splint option that survivalists love Pressure dressing – a must-have for wounds on the arm or leg Caffeine pills – good for situations where you need to stay awake and get to your destination or keep watch Coban roll – an easy to use wrap for limbs that won’t come off easily Plastic cling wrap – ideally two inches wide Tourniquet – you can make your own with other materials/objects but these are easy to store and do the best job Acetaminophen aka Tylenol Emergency blankets – another essential inclusion Band-aids – duh Pepto-Bismol pills – easier to store than the liquid you get in stores Miconazole – for treating fungal or yeast infections Kelly clamps – curved and straight to allow for flexibility when removing objects from wounds or holding tissue in place Alcohol pads – necessary for keeping your hands and other instruments clean and sterile for future use OPAs – these are for oral airways that stop the airway from closing completely. Good for buying time until Benadryl or an epi-pen is in their system. Vitamins (multi and vitamin C) – good for fighting off micronutrient deficiencies if you’re in a situation where you might not be getting the most balanced diet N-95s masks – some preppers like to have these in their kits in case polluted or dirty air comes about as the result of a SHTF scenario Antiseptics – always a smart thing to include. Including different kinds will make for a more future-proof hygiene approach. Cotton sheets – lightweight and versatile Dental filling material – not something you want to deal with but always smart to include Floss – for keeping tooth issues at bay Dermabond or super glue – a variety of great first aid benefits especially for small wounds Gatorade and rehydration tablets/mixes – good for keeping your core electrolytes up especially if you’re exerting yourself for a prolonged amount of time. Eye pads – for keeping an eye wound protected Antibiotic ointment and cream – if you want to address a specific area without putting antibiotics in your whole system Dental extractors – this is another piece of gear in your prepper first aid kit that you should learn how to use first Snake bite kit – better than nothing if you can apply it fast enough Sutures – good if you know what you’re doing (we recommend doing taking a class to get more comfortable with this) Re-useable GEL packs – for heating and cooling Aloe vera – useful for treating burns that commonly occur outside in nature when exposed to the sun or feisty plants Steri strips – extremely useful stitches alternative when in the field Wool blankets – these take up more room than an emergency blanket but can be a useful addition if you have space Claritin – smart inclusion for allergies CPR masks Ammonia inhalants – helpful for keeping people awake or perking yourself up if you’re trying to push through some fatigue and get to your destination Hydrogen peroxide – this has multiple uses but is most commonly called upon for cleaning a wound the first time. You can also use it as a mouthwash when necessary. Dental mirror – great if you need to address any tooth issues Paracord – awesome multipurpose tool that you can use for just about anything Tapes – DUCT, adhesive, and paper tape are all good options. Can have other helpful uses if you need to build a long term survival shelter as well. Quikclot or Celox – these are clotting powders that can quickly keep a nagging wound at bay so you can keep moving Eye cup – for washing Scalpels – #10, #11, #15 are the best choices Epi-pen – no-brainer especially if someone in your party has allergies. Fairly small so we like to include it regardless since you might not be able to rely on traditional medical attention and time is of the essence. Antibacterial soap Skin stapler/remover and adson forceps – it’s smart to learn how to use these properly before you rely on them outside Athlete’s foot powder – it’s better to not rely on this by practicing smart foot care, but can be useful Universal cervical collar – a bit more sturdy than some of the makeshift option
  6. i wish i got on in march. i had the money. it was about 4k then. Hell, 5 years ago it was around $600... now look. well over 30k. * kicks self *
  7. Agreed. Taking our right to keep and bear arms and appending such criteria and constraints kind of sounds like infringement. Or am I reading too far into it?
  8. I applied for my firearms purchasers permit around april and was approved in july 7 of 2020. I was told NOT to appear in person until i was called. I was never called. In fact, i called them repeatedly up until new years of 2021. Nobody answered the phone. Nobody called me back. I left a message every time I called. Had I not shown up in person, I would have never been notified. When i finally spoke with someone, i was told that my application had expired and that a letter was sent to my house on July 8th. I received no such document in the mail. I was told viaemail that i was going to be called, not contacted through the mail. All communication has been via email, why would they send the one notification I've been waiting for by mail? I am very disappointed that i was made to reapply, ask my references to take time out of their busy schedules to answer questions on my behalf, and then pay fees again. It was no fault of my own. As you all know already, we have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms. I'm trying to do so through the proper and legal channels but i feel like this little game of waiting me out is a ploy to infringe upon that by preventing me from obtaining my permit. Anyone else deal with something like this? Honestly, I am annoyed because I think they just don't want citizens armed so they're going to do what they can legally prevent us.
