Taurus First 24: Superior Go Bag

Taurus First 24 To Go Bag

Having a disaster and emergency kit on hand makes as much sense as having a fire extinguisher in the home and a spare tire in a vehicle.

You should have those items with you at all times. A fire extinguisher, spare tire and first aid kit are common-sense items, but so is a reliable handgun. The right equipment at the right time can save your life. Prior training is the single, most important predictor of survival during a critical incident. Just the same, you must have some tools with which to work. I am proud that my other half recently completed a CPR course. She takes that training seriously and was excited to learn. You, too, should be prepared. On that note, the recent introduction of the Taurus First 24, a special survival kit with much to recommend, is exciting.  The kit may save your life during the first few hours of an emergency.

The kit contains a .357 Magnum revolver and tools from respected makers, including Columbia River Knife and Tool.  When caught in an emergency, natural or otherwise, having such a kit is a tremendous boost to confidence. You may not need the tools, but it is better to have them and not need them than to need them and not have them. Chances are, the tools will come in handy. Just look at the unfortunate incidents during Hurricane Katrina, or worse the New York City power outage of 1968. Besides the Taurus 617 seven-shot .357 Magnum revolver, the kit includes:

The case itself is important because it is hard, not a soft bag, and will survive rough handling. The paracord has many uses, from strapping gear together to fixing common breakage. The compass is a must-have because you should know where you are going and where it is. The fire-starter kit is a no-brainer. The lights are a must-have, and the batteries are included. An emergency signal is a great idea because flare guns are heavy and often expensive. The flashlight is small but adequate for most tasks and portable. And the knife is a CRKT Sting.

Say A.G. Russell, and you have to immediately say “first,” because the living legend was one of the inventors of the modern knife industry. Despite all his awards and achievements, A.G. is first a knifemaker. The CRKT-production Sting, complete with a custom high-strength nylon fabric/glass-filled nylon sheath, is a multipurpose, one-piece utility knife that is just about indestructible. Hot forging is the reason the Sting is so tough. It begins life as an ordinary blank of 1050 carbon steel, similar to the alloy used in traditional Samurai swords, which is first hot forged and then precision ground into the final shape. Then CRKT applies a black non-reflective powder coat finish to resist corrosion. The spear-point blade features two razor-sharp cutting edges. The integral handle is contoured to fit a bare or gloved hand nicely and provides heft and balance, with thumb detents for grip. A large lanyard hole is provided, allowing the use of a wrist lanyard or carry as a neck knife. The Sting is a tough character that has earned its respect.

The Taurus 617 is a rugged two-inch barrel revolver chambered for the powerful .357 Magnum cartridge. It holds seven rounds. The action is smooth, and the sights are broad and easily picked up in an emergency. The First 24 kit’s revolver has been through the Aim Pro Tactical Performance Shop, where Taurus tunes the actions, polishes the chambers and finishes the revolver in durable X Coat for stellar corrosion resistance. The result is a custom-grade revolver that weighs less than 30 ounces but deploys seven rounds of .357 Magnum ammunition. Also in the hard case is a box of Hornady Critical Defense ammunition. The 125-grain FTX breaks about 1200 fps from the Taurus 617. That is serious horsepower for such a light and handy revolver. There is no better choice for a ready kit than the Taurus 617. It will come up shooting even after being stored for years. No springs are under compression in the revolver, and it will be reliable without lubrication. While it is a good idea to check the kit from time to time as a guard against moisture and corrosion, it is dirt tough, and the Taurus 617 and its corrosion-resistant finish will not corrode.  The Taurus 617 features synthetic grips that protect the hand from recoil. The Taurus Magnums are surprisingly easy to use well. If you prefer, you can load the revolver with .38 Special +P loads for slightly built people or teenagers. Yes, you should train your teenagers because they should be assets rather than liabilities in an emergency. While I advocate practice with the handgun, the revolver is simple to operate. Even those who have never fired the revolver will be able to handle it in an emergency. Safety training must be accomplished beforehand, but qualified people will be able to manipulate the Taurus if they are able to use a handgun at all.

The introduction of the First 24 series from Taurus gives us all food for thought. Consider the likely scenarios, think ahead and be ready for that first 24 hours of an emergency.

  1. I think a alternate an better choice option over APALS Flares. Would be a Great Land Green Laser Flare system, which can be from 20-miles away in daylight and 50-miles away at night. Line-to-line sighting wise.

    1. Greatland Green Laser Flare, from the company website.

      Specifications:
      Visibility:
      Nighttime (optimum conditions): 30 miles
      Daytime: 3-5 miles

      APALS are 50$ for ten. The green laser is 200$ on sale.

    2. @ Z.

      Thanks for the information. I heard that they have a New CEO and that they Relocated to Homer, Alaska…

  2. @ G-Man.

    We’ll I guess someone at CTD, finally got about to fixing the problem.
    It took them long enough, at least 45-minutes.

    Well, I wanted to add additional information on your 550-Paracord question and/problem. Other possible uses are both inner and outer cords can be used as either a slow fuse or a slow match. Because like a fuse they have controllable burn times. You can also use them as a slow match in starting camp fires. Also, you can use it in bundling electrical wiring, by threading the electrical wire through the inner tube of the outer cord. Just to keep your wiring separated for easier identification purposes.

  3. @ G-Man.

    I have possible usage for and the others. Cut into strips of various length, then pull the white center cord out. Then knot one end of the outer cord, and use the inner part of the cord as a storage vessels/container. For storing small loose parts, extra bullets, tightly rolled money, etc. It’s a trick I learned in the Army. And you can use the white inner cord for this shoe laces replacements, and whatever else you can think of.

  4. Do I have this right – there are 550 feet of 550 para-cord included in this case? That is a WHOLE lot of cordage to use in the first 24 hours, also it is a lot larger than that case appears to be. Don’t you mean ‘(however much) feet of 550 para-cord?’. Good, tight article other than that, thanks for sharing!

    1. @ Texsuptin: Good catch. No way is that 550 feet of Paracord in that case. I’ve worked with thousand foot spools of Paracord in the military and can attest there is barely 20 feet in that case based on the fast-rope rig in that picture.

    2. Sure you’re right…but… Survival books note that real Paracord (and other ropes) can be unraveled to make longer lengths for use where you don’t need that much thickness but want the length and strength. Lots of uses for string or twine peeled off from thicker ropes. Don’t know if that’s true of what comes with this “Superior Survival Kit.” I say this because I know a little of survival kits, and this here is not necessarily the what-all I’d personally put into a bug-out-bag, even if only for their imagined “first 24 hours.” (You spend over a grand on survival for the first 24? Then what?)

      I do like the knife/Paracord inclusion for longer term survival, however.

      If (when) the SHTF, one of the less-obvious threats to humans on foot will be wild dog packs. Seriously. Former pets, they won’t necessarily be afraid of ambulatory humans (they will be dining on human corpses, in fact). Yes, sorry to say, even your once-adorable and loving Fido WILL get into the pack act, when you run out of Purina. Fido will come for you, he and his friends will have had success with unarmed, unwary humans. Traveling afoot.

      In a few weeks, the 25 bullets in this “24-hour survival kit” could run out very quickly if you’re fighting off hungry dog packs. You’ll want to save that ammo for wannabe Rambos with AKs and ARs, gangstas with Saturday night specials. But that durable, lovely, open-handled spear-point survival knife, lashed to a wooden pole with sturdy Paracord? Even tied to the aluminum handle of a pool-cleaning tool or a paint roller extension handle? Is what you’ll want for attacking dogs. With luck they’ll spend time devouring the first one you catch through the throat. While you hastily depart.

      Even an oak rake handle may do in a pinch (blade on one end, cudgel on the other) makes an acceptable hiking pole (getting as far away from danger IS, actually, your best move, but until then…). Depending on your circumstances or your fate, that kit’s knife and Paracord combo might turn out to be the most useful items you can possess. The firearm, while I’m sure serviceable (I’ve had a similar model by my bedside and/or front door for 15 years), may turn out to be superfluous dead weight.

      Someone mentioned “stobor”? Yes, catch up on your Heinlein, people. If you’re to make it in a SHTF situation, that Russell CRKT is arguably the handiest item provided in the kit. Augment it with paranoid intelligence, a basic multi-tool Leatherman, a Katadyn or other good water purifier, a Bic lighter…you have yourself the beginnings of a serious survival kit.

      As a true “survival kit,” sorry, I think this one’s well-marketed, but incomplete.

    3. @ Average Joe American: The dialogue between me and Texsuptin dwelled upon nothing more than the author’s typographical error when specifying the proper length of paracord provided in this kit. Neither of us commented either way on the merits or usefulness of the paracord itself.

      I am unaware of Texsuptin’s experiences, but I am an expert on the uses of paracord which I acquired through many years of survival training by the military.

      With that said, I don’t know what to make of you. At first I felt you to be an opportunist; hijacking others simple comments to morph them into a symposium for your own longwinded oration that satisfies and quenches nothing more than your own thirst for speak. Not that we as forum members could do anything to stop you, but we do have the option to ignore you.

      However, I have instead decided that the usefulness of your commentary outweighs the manner in which it has been thrust upon us; particularly when reading about the unexpected realities one may face with domestic animals gone wild whilst contemplating appropriate portable ammunition supplies. That was beneficial, so thank you.

      I would disagree with you on the Bic lighter or at least one’s dependency upon disposable lighters as their only ignition source. I have had many fail by leaking empty over time. So in addition, I recommend packing the magnesium fire starters and quick-light kindling like petroleum jelly soaked cotton balls or lent.

      I wish to iterate that given our immediate dialogue said nothing of the advantages or disadvantages of paracord length or uses, your commentary appears to have been misplaced and probably should have been started in your own thread rather than as a reply to ours. But again thanks anyway, as I’m certain many will find it as useful as I did.

    4. G-Man,

      Since you have extensive survival training, did you ever come across explosive paracord? Some of my people were working with Union Carbide on it years ago before they got out of the explosives business. We were working with Detaflex cores, wrapping steel wire cords as a core paracord. I know the BATF would allow for its retail sale, but it would be a much better survival cord than plain paracord and we had hoped to be able to make minimal crude anti-personnel IED’s, etc. from the cord since adding a few blasting caps to the bug-out bag would make so much more effective.

      BTW, we never used BICs of disposable lighters. wind-proof Zippos are a little heavier but they never lose their charge and rarely fail in the bush.

    5. G-Man,

      Boy I butchered that previous post. Here it is again.

      G-Man,

      Since you have extensive survival training, did you ever come across explosive paracord? Some of my people were working with Union Carbide on it years ago before they got out of the explosives business. We were working with Detaflex cores, wrapping Detaflex material onto thin strong steel wire to make the core for the paracord. I know the BATF would not allow for its retail sale, but it would be a much better survival cord than plain paracord and we had hoped to be able to make minimal crude anti-personnel IED’s, etc. from the cord since adding a few blasting caps to the bug-out bag would make so much more effective.

      BTW, we never used BICs or disposable lighters. Wind-proof Zippos are a little heavier but they never lose their charge and rarely fail in the bush. They have more uses than mag starters, but that’s a matter of taste, I guess.

  5. @ G-Man.

    Thanks for the heads-up, I didn’t know about it. I’m learning something new about The Shooter’s Log, everyday. But, I still like too Pick-the-Brain of others, because they may and/or may not slant their stats.

    Because, I’m hungry for new and information. On just about everything, I’m Anal Retentive about things like that.

    1. Secundius, no problem. I agree that commentary such as yours spurs greater thought into the conversations. I probably understood your goal, but wanted to be helpful just in case.

      I’ve learned that even though this is a good forum, CTD still must pay the bills and so some of their articles are really cleverly written ads with links to their product offerings. I can’t bash them for trying to make a buck, yet they do it in such a fun way.

  6. Taurus .357’s are my kind of defense weapon, good power and utter dependability. Having several already, this one would feel right at home. The rest of the kit seems well thought out and stocked with top of the line gear including a pair of speed loaders, giving you access to 21 quickly accessible, powerful rounds in the cylinder and at hand. Sign me up.

  7. Great article and an interesting set up, but it would be nice to know how much this package deal costs. Thanks for all of the great info from CTD!

    1. I’d still like to know what it’s made of. What metals were used in the production of the gun. Whether the frame in made of Titanium and the cylinder chamber is made of Scandium. If the frame is Titanium, it’s going to be a bitch too repair. And, if the cylinder chamber is made of Scandium. It’s going the a nightmare too replace. COST WISE THAT IS.

    2. Hey guys (Glennon and Secundius), CTD always includes links to the products within the body of their articles. For example, in the middle of the second paragraph of this article there is a red hyperlink of the wording “Taurus First 24”. Click that and you will be whisked away to a CTD page that provides 2 kit options with pricing. The first one is that which is featured in this particular article. Click on that and you will get the product page with all the specs which includes the exact model of the gun. From there hopefully all your questions will be answered or at least be provided all the model numbers for further research. Hope this helped.

  8. Taurus makes great guns.I have owned their revolvers and pistols.
    I’ve never had a problem with either. They also have a lifetime warrenty, I haven’t had to use it yet.I hear they honor it.
    Taurus is also very inovative.
    This package has self defence , hunting,fire,cutting, navigation,light up the dark and cordage.Thats a great start to any survival situation.
    I’d buy that set up.If its reasonably priced.
    It wont be long before the other makers jump on the wagon.
    Look at the judge.The xd or is it dx are a lot like the Millennium pros , and 24/7s.
    I give it thumbs up.

  9. Interesting comment regarding Taurus quality.
    Although I dont much care gor their auto’s,I have found the revolvers to be top notch.
    This particular model I dont have any experience with but I own 3 other revolvers that have never given me pause.They fire every time and I hit what I shoot at.
    Opinions vary in most things,anyway.

  10. “A reliable handgun”? Doesn’t that rule out anything made by Taurus? And yes, I’ve owned 4 of their handguns and not a single one of them was reliable enough to use in any situation more critical than punching holes in a tin can. Looks like a nice kit otherwise, but I’d sell the Taurus revolver and replace it with a Ruger, S&W or something else I knew I could trust.

  11. Whoa now my horsey, I do not burden down the cart with all the instruments and implements for everyday travel and neither do I pack my black gunsbon runs for gas and oil or six pack of ale at 7/11 dressed as if for combat.
    No I have packed a Taurus and its 2″ barrel in my hands holds dead true 3″ at 20 -30 feet.
    In a large safe deposit box, there are 5 wooden cased pistols, one is an exquisitly Engraved Colt fone by an English Master. Within the partitioned box are all the original tools incuding bullet mold, 6 brasd cases with all but 1 never been fired and a Plaque designating to whom the pistol was presented.
    In another bof is a set of early american finely engraved black powder dueling pistols with varifiedvHeritage.
    Then we jump to the Wesson with all its barrels and in another case we find the very very low serial numbered black powder Civil War era pistol that came fron its Confederate States Armory to an individusl identified on it.
    NOT braghing but pointingvout that cased eooden or astoday hard plastic dpecial pistol packages are a tradition in our Weapon history.
    Today each manufacturer does not hold to that tradiyion but some do and ThisbTaurus is more a showcase for its Pridevin Manufacturing andbto attract not the Warroors but yesbjust people who appreciate a weapon in all aspects but as in the old cased models I have able to be removed andbused for the purposes they were designed.
    How many of you have kept the containerd just as they were for certain weapons as being an addition to its value?.
    I judge the quality and the practicality as a statement made by manufacturer to you as a future customer.

    1. All true but THIS is marketed as a ” Survival Kit” and should be evaluated as such,not as a custom cased firearm w/accessories.
      As such, it has several lacks.

    2. Agreed, Flick. It’s supposed to be a “survival” kit/BOB. What it looks like is a cluttered pistol case. All this stuff would fit easily into a kid-sized book-bag (what I actually pack as a BOB) with room to spare. If I WERE stuck with a “cliff-ready” hardshell plastic case with a carry-handle, of approximately this size (not that I envision myself crawling through a desert or forest, or sneaking down urban alleys–for that matter–with such an odd encumbrance limiting my manual options), I’d pull out the guts of case and carve a new high-density foam inner block. Into this block I would make custom holes for some of the stuff in this kit, with additional slots for a miniature Bic lighter (waterproof and good for hundreds of lights), a few trioxane fuel packets, a McNett or similar miniature emergency water filter, a collapsible water bag with carry strap, a flat resealable doubled freezer bag filled with Jarrow whey protein (several days worth of lightweight nourishment), a handful of instant coffee packets, perhaps a spare e-cigarette assembly or two. I could probably tape photos of my mother, girlfriend, and dog to the inner lid.

      Calling this offering a “survival kit” is a stretch…more like expensive gun packaging/marketing. You CAN hunt rabbits or quail with a .357 (I do own one, a Taurus 2″, nice little bear-stopper) but you’d need that extra freezer bag I mentioned to collect the results if all the game available were rodent-sized. What this kit would mainly be good for is threatening people, tying them to a fire hydrant or tree with paracord, and taking their food and water.

      Me, I wouldn’t try it on someone carrying a book bag…well, or a guitar case. In a survival situation you never know about fellow travelers weird enough to fill up one hand with an awkward carry-case while consulting a compass in the other. (I’d also throw away the silly plastic case, put the gun in my belt, and stuff everything else in my pockets).

  12. Thats a great idea G…also one of the so-called ” Ranger” vests with the large pocket on the back…I like the vest idea for stealth times…. Kudo’s

  13. @ G-Man.

    A good quality Photo Journalist Vest, with 15-deep pockets or more.
    Also make good BOB’s. Also, they don’t attract a lot of notice. While laying on the back-seat of a car, or even while wearing it. Unless, your one of those people who tend to over-stuff the pockets.

  14. @ FLICK

    You might also consider a microfiche files and portable microfiche reader, so you don’t have to EMP protect it. It’s as low tech, as your going to get.

  15. @ FLICK

    Download Now, Not on the Fly. Store material information of a 1 or 2-TB Pocket Portable Hard Drive, or store it on a USB Micro 32-GB Thumb-Drive.and hang-it around your neck. Or download the information along with some reading material on a Kindle, and wrap it in a Faraday Cage EMP protective envelope and/or bag.

  16. With little effort and an internet connection I can easily find a couple of hundred different lists of what is needed in a BOB or a GHB…Youtube is full of “How-To’s”….Bottom line is either one should of capable of sustaining the bearer,unsupported,for 3-5 days.
    Thats Defense,Water,Shelter and Fire,Food and Equipment,pretty much in that order.
    How much you feel like toting,how much you have to spend and how much effort you want to put into the building of a kit is up to you.
    My Get Home Bag and my BOB are identical,both built on medium ALICE packs with frames.Thats not practical for everyone.
    Again,up to you.I had serious issues with most of the stuff I saw put together on Youtube, but I also picked up some very handy ideas.
    Watch Out For Stobor.
    Regards

  17. For a BOB sleep ststem I got used French lightweight sleepsacks and GI Gore-Tex bivy sacks….both from CTD,..total weight penalty 1lb,7oz’s….about a 30 deg F comfort range with long johns on and water proof/breathable….w/ a tarp and a space blanket Im good to go

  18. I don’t think so, I think those are the APALS Flares. And that item nestled between the Ammo Box and the CRKT Knife, is actually a APALS Flare Launcher and not a Flashlight. I’m suspecting their items stored behind the foam insert as well.

    1. I find something else interesting, is a 7-shot revolver, but the ammunition box inside the kit only has 25-rounds inside.

  19. I put together bug outs for my family, including poncho’s, space blanket, drinking straw-water purifiers-just in case, a knife from harbor frieght-which I put a razor edge on, a windup flashlight and a battery flashlight with extra batteries, oh and a little squeeze flashlight like for a keychain from harbor freight for like 2.99 and they last for years and years too. I threw in some duct tape/tie wire-stainless and some nylon rope in the 1/8th” variety, some hard candies and a couple sealed granola type energy bars. The only other thing I want to find is quality mummy bags that are very lightweight yet capable of the temps in our area of northern Ca wich varies greatly, but mostly pretty nice. For the gun I got a .22 revolver for my wife with an extra cylinder that is capable of holding .22 mags and it packs a wallup for a measly .22, which for her is enough until I can talk her into a .38 or .357 with .38’s in it ; ). This all fits into a small cheap pack and doesnt weigh much at all, the only other things I forgot to add was a beannie or other headgear to heep the head warm-and a set of work gloves and a cheap set of respirators in case dust or germs are a problem like in an earthquake. It is way bigger than the plastic case, but has many more of the deemed valualble items that you might come up needing in an emergency.

    1. @ Barry C : Sounds close to what’s in my 2 BOBs. I used 2 identical black backpacks by JanSport (cheap on sale). Everything that is in one is in the other, so I buy every item in pairs due to my large family.

      Like you, I did the same with the Harbor Freight knives. In addition to what you listed I also have first-aid kits, sewing kits, hygiene kits, tarps, matching long sleeve hoodies that are vacuum sealed in moon bags, rain gear, mini propane w/ burners, magnesium fire starters, electrical tape (fits in the ring of the duct tape nicely), bug repellants, P-38s (military can openers), walkie-talkies and batteries, 50 ft. para cord each, toilet paper/wet wipes (mush 2 rolls flat fit nice in ziplock), wire line, sun block, and pencil & waterproof paper.

      Now that was all in addition to that which you listed (in case anyone’s making a list). I have 2 full sized water filters (Katadyn Hiker), but want to check into the straw type you mentioned. Otherwise, I am so surprised all this fit in these packs so nicely and I still have room for much more on my expanding list.

  20. I look at the perfect BOB in the same way as the perfect conceal carry handgun. Nice idea, but there isn’t a single one solution possible. Like the choice of a weapon, the BOB must be configured to meet the mission at hand, and the BOB has the additional customization needed due to time of year and geographical position of its user. This industry begs of mass customization solutions, offering flexibility and consultative services guidance!

    1. there should be a bit more room In the case for additional gear, such as a first aid kit, and a no nonsense shoulder holster…” wait a minute marauding animal or human while I pull this revolver out of the small suit case” doesn’t work. Also it should be a 4 inch not a duce, at minimum. balance and a bit of accuracy and retaining a bit more lost velocity. that 2 inch barrel is going to act like a flare gun with no directionality. There should also be two boxes of Hornadys in the kit, not one… These “survival firearms kits” never cease to amaze me in what is FORGOTTEN in them. that limit the deployability of the firearm.

    2. @ ScottS: Cracked me up …”wait a minute marauding animal or human while I pull this revolver out of the small suit case.”

  21. Yes it is an expensive toy; But toys are valued accordingly by the ones who play with them.
    The 357 or Judge package out the door including tax in Western Washington’ s large to medium sporting goods stores runs from$ 880 +8% tax, too a hefty $1400 including Tax; Although three at home legal sales friends quoted almost same prices so I see no price gouging ,
    You are buying above normal quality firearms and much the same can be said of all the items in this package.
    Own light and knife but not the particular weapons in packages but have had opportunity to fire their not shop tuned examples and found no issues, likes or dislikes are hard to put price tag on.
    Taurus Weapons as to quality and attention to detail are as well made as any weapons in world so reliabilty of functin is there from raw metal till out the door eternity.
    Many weapons sold across american counters carry brand names of manufactuer but have components made, tooled, quality tested and designed and manufactured on Taurus facilitys.
    Yes one can piece together a good quality replica example for less money, and not realy lose the practicality and effeciency took me less than 15 minutes on a whim to price out from own stock a compareable practicle package together and guess what, used Taurus or S&W, equivelent knife bought at bargain , ammo and $10 dollar locking briefcase with foam and $25 Hornady ammo ” the self package would of cost 500 +wheeling and dealing dollars and time unknown and I doubt that I could sell for that amount except to a sucker kid.
    It is a quality toy for the gotta have one with coins to spare and if I had the coins to spare there would be one more sale for BATF to approve.

  22. I am more familiar with maintaining my family’s series of larger Bug Out Bags (BOB) which stay at home unless we go on long trips. So I would view this more or less as a bare essentials emergency kit that could sit under the car seat on a permanent bases.

    While this is a nice offering which apparently incorporates first rate quality components for those that can afford to drop a grand, I can’t help but wonder if I could piecemeal a similar kit for less. I would consider a different gun and add other elements more specific to my preferences and specific needs.

    1. – In response to the G-Man.

      I agree with you on both counts. But I see the Taurus First 24 Kit, as a Minimal Urban Defensive Survival Kit only. Once you get out of the city, It’s pretty much useless. I mean a snub-nosed .357 Magnum isn’t going to get you very far. Unless the people you encounter are dumber than you.

    2. What,no Space Blanket?
      Seriously,I think I could put a better kit together,but not everybody could.For some non-outdoors person all these pre-fab kits are a consideration.
      But all of them should have a space blanket inside.

  23. * Taurus First 24, Survival Kit.

    Is the frame made of Titanium and the cylinder made of Scandium.
    It’s hard for me to tell, because of the parkerization of the frame. If that’s the case, it’s going to be expensive, Survival Kit to have and/or own.
