    For some odd reason, I have recently fell in love with the idea of buying one of these kits

    http://www.shootingtimes.com/newproducts/smith_072507/

    Each kit includes:
    4 emergency blankets
    emergency rations for 4 people for 3 days
    crank flashlight/radio
    first aid kit
    water purifier tablets
    Multi tool
    waterproof document bag
    pocket survival pack
    SW9VE or SW40VE
    one spare mag
    Hardigg waterproof case

    Now I have no reason as to why I suddenly am lusting for one of these things, but I would most certainly add
    Paddle Holster
    two boxes of ammo
    lightweight tarp
    50' of para chord
    Good Folder


    The kit costs 499 from Academy, and all I have mentioned will cost less than 50 bucks. What would you guys put in one? Should I satisfy my lustful cravings and just go buy it?

    You could build such a kit yourself, with a better gun, for less.

    That cheap stuff can be gotten at Walmart. Ace sells a Snake bite kit. I have vacuum sealed flour, corn meal, grits, coffee, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, rice and lots more things. I bought Galv garbage cans to put things in.

    Build it yourself. Maybe with a different gun. You already got the list of parts...

    Make it look classy by putting it in a Zero Haliburton briefcase.

    Building a kit can be fun. I bought the S&W Bear 500 kit, mostly to have a BLAST shooting a .500 snubbie, but I guess they are now collectible. I added some stuff, for a better survival kit: an orange handled Randall knife, a smaller Bark River knife, a GPS, more firestarting stuff, and a LCD beacon and sturdy flashlight. Along with extra ammo and pouch, parachute cord, etc, and it makes for a handy stash of "must have" stuff for the woods and wild. I may incoporate first aid stuff into its own kit, or figure out how to stuff it in the box the gun came with. If starting from scratch, I'd get a slightly larger box, or high end nylon bag.
