9 Great Survival Tools for Personal Defense

9 Great Survival Tools for Personal Defense

Prepping has entered the mainstream. Not just awareness of the term, but actual prepping itself.

Brownells is a name that should be familiar to most anyone who owns a firearm, as they are one of the largest gun/ammo/accessories retailers in the country. They have in excess of 100,000 different items for sale on their website, and they recently started an Emergency and Survival Gear section.

At last count there were already 774 items in Brownells' ESG section, which might be a bit overwhelming to the casual shopper. While most of them squarely address prepping and survival in natural disasters, many of the same tools are also useful for personal defense, which only makes sense as personal defense is all about survival. Here's a few of the top picks.
