gear to help you shelter in place

A. In addition to its magnetic base and stowable hook, the Streamlight Beartrap clamps virtually anywhere, allowing users to inspect, identify and repair with hands-free lighting. Its body is capable of standing on its own and can project light 270 degrees. The high-output LED bulbs  feature six output modes, making it a great option for both everyday use and when there’s no power available. MSRP: $240;

B. Available in 2- or 5-gallon sizes, the 5ive Star Gear Collapsible Water Bag is constructed from heavyweight BPA-free PVC. It stores water safely and securely in a fully collapsible container that is compact and easy to transport, thanks to a convenient handle. A spigot incorporates a leak-free on/off feature that is easy to use in an emergency. MSRP: $5.95;

C. The Eton American Red Cross FRX3+ Self-Powered Weather Alert Radio receives standard AM/FM stations as well as all seven NOAA/Environment Canada weather bands. Its integral hand-turbine crank and solar-power cell help the FRX3+ recharge cell phones through its USB port and serve as a connection to the outside world, without the need for on-grid electrical service to be operational. An alert function broadcasts emergency weather alerts, while its long-lasting LED flashlight, red LED flashing beacon and glow-in-the-dark locator offer peace of mind when the lights go out. MSRP: $59.99;

D. Small enough to attach to a keychain, the NukAlert 24/7 Radiation Monitor and Alarm is your personal radiation meter, monitor and alert system. It operates non-stop and will promptly warn you of the presence of unseen, but acutely dangerous levels of radioactive fallout. Up to 10 alarm “chirps” correspond to a calibration chart on the back of the device that helps users determine how long they can safely remain in an area based on radiation levels. MSRP: $160;

BallistiClean 00 Buck Review

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
