I hope our current obsession with survival gear and bug out bags and general disaster preparedness means we're not actually going to have to face the collapse of the world in the near future. Because when it comes to the three steps to surviving the apocalypse, I'm damn good at number 1, Buy shitload of tools, weapons, and supplies, and number 2, Talk ad nauseam about game plan for applying tools, weapons, and supplies. But that third one, When chaos strikes, use gathered tools, weapons, and supplies to come out the other side alive, I have concerns that third one might elude me.
So like I said, hopefully number 3 will stay at bay for the foreseeable future and we'll get to just keep focusing on numbers 1 and 2. Here, further enriching number 1, is number 24. Taurus' First 24 is an armful of survival gear neatly arranged for storage in an SKB waterproof/drop-proof case.
