As a prepper do you value the ability to gain access or to escape? It’s a certain mindset that is not shared by all preppers. Let’s talk about the importance of access in something like urban survival.
Access in Urban Survival
If you are talking about urban survival you are going to need access. You are going to either have to get into buildings or through buildings and gates. These things are very important.
Most urban survival situations require that you keep moving. If you don’t head for the hills you are going to need to keep moving from one safe area to the next.
Something like a pair of bolt cutters might be worth their weight in gold! This will give you the ability to cut the fence and gain access.
The Firepen as a Breaching Tool
Some subjects just require a video and when I heard about this firepen I thought a video would offer a much better option to explain this tool. The question is whether it is breaching tool.
Still, I wonder whether it is not only a breaching tool but what about an escape tool? Of course, this all sounds silly to you because you have no idea what I am talking about yet.
This is a video and its a video that features the review of a couple of things. One of those things is the firepen. Be sure that you watch the review of the firepen.
There is other great information in this video as well but this tool has me thinking whether or not it deserves a place in the bugout bag. Don’t forget about the importance of access, particularly, if you are in a suburban or urban environment.
