Military Speedhook™

Military SpeedhookMilitary Speedhook

This is one of many great products from Survival Resources (and we will feature more ongoing). We carry the Military Speedhook in our B.O.B. as it provides a complete solution for fishing with a spring-loaded action that automatically sets the hook when it springs open. The kit is complete with dehydrated bait along with fishing line, one hook and instructions. We recommend buying a few and also including some extras hooks with each kit. This is the U. S. Military Version of the Speedhook™ and is currently included in the Cold Weather Survival Kits of the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Coast Guard, Army Reserves and others. Be aware that this device is so effective it is outlawed in some areas, so check your local regulations before using now.

Available only direct from Survival Resources for $10.95 plus shipping




SHTF/TEOTWAWKI Use of Force

Legit discussion from Survivalist Boards on Use Of Force if SHTF.

TEOTWAWKI News Excerpt:

Suppose something REALLY BAD happens. (Think Katrina, before relief arrived.) You are in your neighborhood, bugging in, or getting ready to bug out, and you have throngs of looters/ne’er do wells/skels & scumbags eyeing your house or loved ones or car. How would you respond in such a situation, use-of-force wise? Can you turn your back on your fellow man who didn’t prepare as well as you? Would you have any qualms about the morality of killing somebody to protect your stash?

Box-To-Mag Loader

Box-to-Mag Loader

We don’t like to post “coming soon” products but this looks to useful to skip. The Box-To-Mag Loader does what it’s name implies – it allows you to easily load ammo (for your M4/AR-15) directly from box to magazine…and very quickly and efficiently too! The product is listed as $24.95 with pre-order in September and availability in October. Pre-orders will receive $7 off, which is a good discount. We subscribed and will report back with news when available.

Available soon and only from 3Pointi




The Survival Food Pyramid

Survival Cache has an excellent article on their “Survival Food Pyramid.”

The Survival Food Pyramid

The Concept

The top of the pyramid is for stocking the smallest amount of food for the shortest amount of time. The idea being that someone who is completely new to prepping can start with a cheap and easy goal and build (downward) from there.

They break it down into four (4) stages or levels:
1. Immediate
2. Extended
3. Long Term
4. Perpetual

We like this organizational concept very much and find this captures our approach both at a global level as well as the individual level. For example, we try to apply the same concept to a Bug-Out-Bag, though on a smaller scale. Same goes for a Vehicle Kit along with our Retreat in general.

Datrex Food Bars

Datrex Food BarsDatrex Food Bars

Datrex food bars are simply the best product in this category. They are actually quite tasty (and without the lemony flavor common with other bars), they keep for at least five (5) years (though we’ve eaten older ones) and they are well-packaged for a Bug-Out-Bag (now mainstreaming as an “Evac-Pack”). And Nitro-Pak is the best source for Datrex bars – they have the best prices anywhere with excellent service. Each individual bar provides 200 calories while an entire package contains eighteen (18) bars or 3600 calories total. Be alert if purchasing elsewhere as the actual quantity received can be confusing.


Available from Nitro-Ka for $66.90 plus shipping for a case of ten (10) packages
