Because “Winging it” is not an Emergency Plan

NRA Store's Survival Tube with fire starter and paracord

There are a few basics that everyone needs to get by when out in the wild; shelter, water and fire. NRAstore™ Merchandise Buyer Brian Evans put together a kit just for that ...

Fairfax, Virginia - When disaster strikes, just “winging it” won’t get you very far. It’s important to come up with a plan and build a kit to give you and your loved ones the best chance of survival. Since September is National Preparedness Month, the NRAstore has decided to show you a few choice items that may literally be lifesavers when the unthinkable happens.

When the lights go out and the heater cuts off, we are forced to revert back to way of our ancestors. For light, for comfort, for cooking and warmth there is one primary source of need – fire. Our Survival Tube fills that need. Featuring a magnesium fire starter and steel striker to produce sparks in the wettest and windiest conditions, this handy tool is a must for any outdoorsman. With a diamond-encrusted knife sharper and 8 feet of paracord, there's a little bit of everything for everyone.

Whenever you're out in the field, staying protected from the elements is all but crucial. Moisture and cold temperatures can make a situation go from bad to worse — quickly. The NRA Tactical Waterproof Blanket is rigged to handle the nastiest scenarios – it can even be used as a tent in a pinch. The waterproof, windproof and puncture resistant properties make it a requisite for your bug-out bag.

NRA Store's Frontier Emergency Water Filter Last but certainly not least is water. A primary need that can often become contaminated and unsafe during a disaster. When you come upon a questionable source in dire need of hydration, the Frontier Emergency Water Filter becomes an absolute necessity.

Put it in your bug-out bag, vehicle or shelter. Weighing less than 1 once, it's easy to transport and filters up to 30 gallons of water. The included straw allows you to drink from a water bottle, cup, river or lake.
