He really does not have to translate or apologize for other post. The forums Chaplin's job is still open.

Default making a survival kit from the "dollar store"

I guess some elaboration is in order. I previously mentioned three $1 items you can get....the hammer carrier which I turned into a hatchet belt carrier and the lighter and fuel. As I researched the matter I found wholesalers who sell to $1 stores. I was surprised as to the variety of items they sell ( not all the items are $1 or less). I am sure they sell to Walmart and other discount stores. OF course the problem with wholesale, is no one makes any money selling an item at 79 cents or at $10.....unless you buy/sell in quantity. Thats what wholesale is all about. Also, these items are 90% made in China,...but you are not going to get Made in Usa at the same price....So if you can accept the import idea ( some can't) and accept that you may have to buy at a $150 minimum, or some other minimum amount.......you can make up a kit or kits. Some items are < $1, the most expensive item is a tent for $19 and a sleeping bag for $10 or $15. Walmart will sell these same items for $19.95 or $29.95. Retail works on a 30% margin, on average. I bought two kits of 24 items.....to make/exceed the min purchase of $150....my two kits came to about $79 ea....$160..or $10 over $150 min. Granted my sleeping bag is only rated to 50 degrees F, but I can add a liner to it to get greater warmth ( the GI USA system is rated to below zero.....it uses four layers, but its about $200 surplus). Take a look, I am sure you can find similar kits from the "dollar store" and their suppliers. IF you can't give me a buzz....barbuto@optonline.net

It is ironic. People who are afraid of being attacked are going to the Dollar Store and financing China. The American survivalist buys a One dollar Chinese made flash light. For that dollar and slave labor China can build another AK-47. Who is the "Survivalist" in this game?

Or maybe he buys 6 bags of trail mix and it has nothing to do with China.

I guess I shouldn't have assumed considering he only has 6 posts. You've got over 5,000. Maybe I should have said "welcome to posting in the forum." Everyone is super "on-point" about ball busting on here lol.

China is building ak's for a dollar now eh? I guess that means my tv, toaster, shirts, jackets, microwave, and 60% of the other items in my house just financed an entire army.

Thinking If that were the case China would have an army built from every person in the good ol USA.

Really isn't a way to fill a home without China LOL

As far as Chinese AKs go I'm not worried they are not very well made lol
