It has been a little while since I have posted. I've been out of town recently, but even while out of town I have managed to pick up a couple of new items that will help me towards becoming a more seasoned survivalist.
Also at some point I will have some tips for surviving in one of the worlds biggest cities, which is what I've been doing the past couple of weeks. In the mean time I was able to get online and order some new gear. The first item up is a bail out bag from Countycomm. I've heard good things about this bag in several reviews. I got it in Coyote Brown for the color. Here are a couple of pics.
It's primary use will be a range bag for holding guns, ammo, all my range gear, stuff like that. I have a back pack that I have been using for that purpose, but as I want the back pack to be more of an every day carry bag I wanted something different for all the ammo, and mags. Also I took the back pack with me on the afore mentioned trip, and had to go over it with a fine toothed comb to make sure there wasn't any stray ammo running around in it. It's a good thing I did too, because I found a 9mm bullet in there. I don't think airport security would have liked that very much. Once I have this bag I won't need to worry about things like that.
Features of the bag:
-Only YKK brand zippers and real Velcro used throughout
-Hidden full size gun pocket with Velcro for easy access.
-Two adjustable side pockets for radios.
-Large main pocket has a removable stiffener/divider system to organize gear.
-Two pen pockets.
-Tactical illuminator pocket.
-Four accessory pockets for gun magazines, etc with Velcro closures.
-Large side zippered pocket for wallet, passport, keys and other valuables.
-The bag measures approximately 14" x 10" x 6"
-Padded Removable Shoulder Strap.
-Carry Handles Of Heavy Nylon Webbing, Running The Entire length and across the bottom for extra secure support.
-Large YKK Zippers. (Note: Corded Zipper Pulls that are shown in above photos have been deleted in latest revision bag. Putting Cord on zipper pulls is truely a item left to personal preference)
-Velcro Patch on side pocket to attach name tape, flight suit tag or unit patch.
Manufactured by Maratac, For County Comm
The next item I picked up was a new knife. I've found several situations where having one would have been handy, and I wasn't prepared, and either had to use a steak knife from the kitchen drawer, or hurt myself trying to do something. After reading several reviews I decided on a Smith & Wesson Extreme Ops CK6A. Here's a picture of it.
Features of the knife:
Blade Detail : Plain
Blade Length (inches) : 3.88
Blade Material : 440C
Carry System : Pocket Clip
Handle Material : Aluminum
Lock Style : Liner Lock
Overall Length (inches) : 9.03
Weight: 5.10 ounce
This knife will become a part of my every day carry. Hopefully I have both of these items waiting for me when I get home from this trip.
