NRA Survival Kit

The NRA Store is selling a Personal Survival Kit for $15.95US. This kit, assembled by Survival, Inc., contains a BlastMatch Firestarter, StarFlash Signal Mirror, two WetFire Tinder Cubes, and a JetScream Whistle. The container appears to be an Otterbox 2000 and will withstand abuse you and I are unlikely to withstand.

These kits are an excellent value as the Otterbox would cost you about $15.95 and the BlastMatch alone is around $20 online.

The reason for telling you about this today is that I called the NRA Store yesterday to get some inventory levels and to find out whether or not they had an alternative in place once these pieces were gone. The simple answer? Once they're gone the item is being cancelled.

You could probably build up a similar kit using your own preferred components but I highly doubt you could do it so completely with such high-quality gear for the price. Even if you buy the kit for the box and one of the components you'll come out better than break-even.

Thanks for reading,

Survival Inc is selling these for like $60. They are called the "Ultimate Deluxe Survival Kit". I guess that is what they are worth.

I would love to get the original NRA kit for cheaper since it is exactly the same thing.

If you can get this kit, please email me at flamaest-at-gmail-dot-com

You can check with Dan at JRE Industries. He had a few on the shelf a while back and may still have them.

Email Dan Here

Let me know how it works out.
