A little product release announcement from the guys at Stag Arms landed in my mailbox today. They are pimping the “2012 Executive Survival Kit”. Now, I’ve always thought that a big Pelican/Hardigg case full of essentials would be handy but Im not sure I’d stock it the same way these guys have.
STAG ARMS and LAN World, Inc. have designed the executive survivor’s kit (ESK) for the discerning customer that demands the highest quality equipment. Using only the finest products the 2012 ESK is truly the survivor’s kit of choice for any type of disaster preparedness and personal security. The ESK can be purchased ($2012) online or over the phone where a customer service agent will find your closest dealer and assist in the transfer to you. The ESK with its military grade case is perfect for long term storage or can easily travel with you.
The 2012 Executive Survivor’s Kit includes the following and is competitively priced at $2,012 (over $2500 value!):
*Stag Arms Model 2 AR-15 rifle
*Diamondhead Versa-Rail handguard
*EoTech 517 Holographic Red Dot Optic
*Stag Arms Field Repair Kit, OTIS AR-15 Cleaning Kit, & Silent Sling
*Two 30 Round Magazines (10 rounds for restricted states)
*Gerber MP 600 Multi-Pliers
*Gerber Omnivore LED Flashlight
*Dual Purpose Human/Pet First Aid Kit
*MRE Field Ration Meal
*Pelican 1700 Long Case
*60 Rounds of Quality Ammunition
In fact, I figured that a kit like that for me would be a Pelican case big enough to hold the usual BOB-sized pack and a broken down rifle.
Depending on what flavor of apocalypse youre expecting, I think you’d be far better prepared with your own kit rather than so e pre-bought package…and this applies to pretty much everything – ‘years supply’ of food packages, wilderness survival kits, first aid kits, etc, etc.
Still, it’s kind of interesting to see something like this. Obviously gun manufacturers know that theres folks like us out there who buy their products, it’s just fairly rare that they pander to us so blatantly. (And I’m looking at you Z-Max ammo makers!)
