What bug-out/survival items have you bought, traded for, received as a gift, or otherwise acquired recently? Inspired by the long-running thread in Firearms. Extra imaginary bonus kudos points for pics.

I will begin as it is only right


Silva "Military Navigator" lensatic compass
2x Datrex 3600kcal rations (blue rations)
300' 550 paracord (100' each of neon green spiral, woodland camo, international orange)

Stopped by the army surplus... got another 1 qt. canteen, a used cloth cover (w/ small external pocket), and three P-38 openers.

I use one of those mini Altoid Smalls tins to make an uber-small BOAT that tucks into the pocket of the canteen cover. I usually include a small fire steel, a third of a business card w/ duct tape, a jig-head (just the lead head and the hook), a P-38, a button compass, a roll of dental floss (unwaxed, multi-strand), and a couple of needles taped to the inside of the lid. It fits in the pocket with plenty of room for one of those 1/2-size bic lighters. A little redundancy goes a long way with such a small kit. Gave one away and wanted to build another to have around as a spare, hence the "What I bought lately" part of this post.

I worked the local gunshow and between crowds I went table to table hunting! Even did a little bartering!

Picked up a box of 30 Carbine ammo
WW2 eTool with the Korean War case. It's the model that the Garand or Carbine bayonet can attach too.
Collins/Norlund Hatchet
M65 in Woodland Camo
WW2 Herringbone Combat shirt
50 round box of Fragmenting 9mm
M-1942 Mountain stove
An 80's Rambo II knife NIB (I may toss on the table at the September Show)
A dozen battle dressings
A huge bag of British webbing gear I bought from a guy wandering the show.
I know it's a gun, Romanian AK47 with half a case of ammo and 8 spare magazines (bought it cheap from a guy carting it around the show)

All in all a great gunshow was had by all!

Knives ; Buck Paclites skinner $17 and Gerber Profile $15 wal-mart clearance. A belt some pro lite pants and long sleeved tops from 511 on sale at lapolicegear. At an local auction found some whole box of bandages for $3 an old k-bar for $10 and a shoebox full of old folders a lot that are name brands for $12 and a lot of odd and in things like tools . I was a steel snob when it came to knives but these two cheap knives are changing my mind , I really like them.

I just got 2 of those too! :) Now I just need some Nalgene bottles to put in them ;)

Also got me a Kovea Moonwalker, mainly for hiking, but will also be useful when I finally put together my BOB (which is pretty much going to be my hiking bag :))
