A couple things on the “SHTF” knife contest. Try to make your photo as high quality as possible. Be creative not only with the picture but also with the description(if you choose).

I recently had an opportunity to purchase two(2) Helotex G2 flashlights through at a really good price. I love flashlights in my preparedness system I can’t have too many (along with batteries of course). Over the last decade technology has lead to flashlights getting brighter, smaller, and less expensive. Most of my lights run off of either AA alkaline or CR123 batteries. Unique to the Helotex G2
