Snarl....they let you have guns in Korea?

You 'could' ship them in. Technically, they'd have to stay in the arms room, but there's no accountability if you 'check them out' afterwards. Get caught by the KNP ... you're gonna do jail time.

Me ... I'm kinda in a time-warp waiting to get back home, but when I'm in town, you can bet I'm strapped.

Leatherman Multi-Tool...just so many uses. Other than that...my machete. Wouldn't think of going in the wilderness without both of these.

My mind is my best tool...I try to keep it sharp, and fill it with knowledge, for skills and know how, so I can adapt, improvise, and overcome to anything that I feel might be thrown at me and help me, in any type of situation.

As a guy who has spent much time outdoors, I've come to discover there is no favorite piece of equipment. Of course a firearm is the best. I'll avoid that weapon here, It's too obvious. Anyway, everything you have comes to play in a survival situation. I figure you probably do not want this kind of answer so I'll go with my knife. Why? Because with my knife I can CREATE. I can construct fishing spears, cut branches for a shelter, prepare my kill, cut paths, mark trees, make a bow drill for fire, construct basic traps, and sometimes defend myself. It is my most important tool.

My travel trailer . Portable shelter for the SHTF scenerio, but until then I use it for weekend excursions to Orlando with the Family.

Saves a lot of money going to Disney by not having to pay hundreds a night for hotel and food. State parks range in $20-40 a night range with electric,water,sewage included and the kitchens lets us cook in versus paying 50 bucks for burgers 3 times a day.
