If you find yourself out with your shottie loaded with bird shot and you come across a bear or zombie cut the shell all the way round in the center of the wad leaving a connection of 1/4 inch. It will fire as a slug and bale you out of the Sh**. It only takes 2 seconds and may save your life. Is no hassle to keep a couple pre cut. Never try to load these in a magazine only a one off fire or 2 in a double barrel

Survival is everything
You would shoot a bear with bird shot? That's crazy.

When you cut the shell it fires as a slug.

One of the most useful tools (besides a Black American Express card and an AC-130 Gunship) is quite simply- rope.

With a good working knowledge of rope and knots, it is not only used to tie something ON to something else, but as a pulley, a ratchet, a lever, and a working tool.

If you have never been a Boyscout, a Bosuns mate, Air Force Load Master, or Army Parachute Rigger, get thee to the library, or start checking YouTube.

Example- your vehicle needs a pull to make it over the slippery spot- but there are no other vehicle in the area. Plenty of trees, and 50 ft of 7/16ths nylon rope (and a helper). Run the rope TIGHTLY from your vehicle to a handy medium sized tree. (TIGHTLY means you studied up on knots) Go to the midpoint of the rope, have helper stand just behind and BESIDE a rear tire, holding a branch that can be used as a chock.

GRAB the rope, and PUSH at a right angle to the rope. It will deflect about 3-4 feet. Your VEHICLE will move about 2-3 inches. Helper quickly chocks tire so it does not roll back.

Now tighten up the slack rope, and repeat. When length gets to 30 feet or less, find a new anchor. A few inches at a time, you can pull your vehicle using minimal strength.

While it might sound like magic, you are using the incredible leverage of the setup. Only works with a TAUT rope. A push of 50 lbs at the center of the rope becomes a PULL of about 800 lbs at the vehicle.

Folks that rig crane loads with a sling know about that- to keep from breaking the nylon sling.

Now go study your knots.

When was the last time you guys siphoned some fuel? They sell inexpensive handpumps now that aren't half-bad, but a cut garden hose will get you there if you keep in practice.

Misting up a bit at such a happy thought.
