Today I’m going to pick my top picks for Christmas gifts. This will not be the average survival holiday list. The Scope of Survivalpunk is too big to be contained in a single subject. So for the list follow the great advise of the legendary Bruce Lee:
“Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it.”
I’m sure you will find at least a few things on the list worth getting. Now lets get down to the goodies!
First off this will not be a numbered top list. They will be in the order I think of them but will try to order them into categories so you can pick what you want from the categories you like.
For the most part I am only going to include items that I have used and tested. I can think of a few exceptions that will make the list based on opinions I trust and are items I plan on picking up.
I reviewed this knife Here. Hands down this knife is awesome. I’m a fan of the big knife for survival and this one combines all the properties I like in a light weight package.
This is the most useful tool I own. If I was stuck with only this one tool I would be OK. It was reviewed here.
This is the ultimate in get home bag and as an E&E component to a Bug Out Bag. I reviewd it during the contest here. Also if its still working you can use the discount code “survivalpunk” to claim your $20 bucks off. I ordered one myself so expect a updated GHB article soon.
I really need to get the review out for this amazing piece of gear. My buddy John Willis sent this out to me a while ago and I don’t know how I would survive without it. It adds good rigidity for when I concealed carry. It is not hard to put on, Yes you have to take the fucking male end off and weave it through. I’ve never found this to be an issue. I like how you can really get a good tight fit pulling back on the Velcro. The quick release cobra buckle has been rather handy as well. This one is in the Survivalpunk colors and beautiful. If you order one tell him James from SP sent ya!
These are cheap and awesome. Nuff said.
This is the only gun cleaner I will use from now on. Last time I took out my AR15 after not having cleaned it in a while I saw the Frog Lube coming out the metal pores when the bolt got hot. The bolt actually became more wet as I shot. I reviewed it Here.
This little tool is a miracle worker for speeding up cleaning your M4 rifle. Reviewed here.
This is what i use for my edc carry holster for my Glock 19. It conceals like you wouldn’t believe even in fitted shirts. It’s the most comfortable IWB holster I’ve used.
These guys donated a beautiful red paddle style holster for my September contest. Giving that thing away was very hard. I’ll be ordering one to keep soon.
This book by Joe Nobody was sent to me by the great folks over at PrepperPress to review and sadly I’m a slow reader. What I have read though is pretty amazing. Highly recommend it.
I like these for dry firing practice at home and for malfunction drill on the range. I wrote about them in my Dry Firing Drills article.
This DVD by my friend Michael W Dean and teacher Jarad Waltz is amazing. Jarad is a great teacher and shows you how to become a better shooter. I reviewed this DVD Here.
Some of my odd picks are here.
I’ve talked about this book a lot recently and for good reason. Check out my review here then grab a copy.
This is the book that began me on my paleo journey. Robb has a great sense of humor and backs it up with great scientific data.
I think that’s enough to get you going. I could probably keep this list going forever. Those are my top ones though. They all carry the highest stamp of approval from Survivalpunk. Hopefully some of the items on the list clicked with you.
What would you add to the list? Don’t agree with something on the list? Let me know in the comments!
