What survival kit items can I find at Lowes?

SHOP AND SUPPORT PM101: www.preparedmind101.com
Preparedmind101 couldn’t film today like usual. So instead, I worked something in on a trip to Lowes. I decided to try and find everything I could in the store that had a realistic survival kit application. Might be good information for people putting their first kits together, or for something you didn’t think of.

    My family and I do construction, so we're at Lowes ALOT. Pretty much every day. One day, I walked in with a fixed blade knife on my belt. I never work without a fixed blade on me, and I simply forgot to take it off before going In the store. A guy walked by me and saw the knife and REPORTED ME TO THE EMPLOYEES. Out of nowhere, I am now being followed by about 7-8 Lowes workers who ended up chasing me out of the store. They didn't approach me calmly, they acted like they were going to gang up on me, which made me u comfortable, so I just left ,and they Pursued me all the way out of the store. I went back a few days later, and again I was followed by employees, only this time, I didn't let them drive me off. I made my purchase and left. What a freaking absurd thing to do to your customers!

    I work at Lowe's. they're just making sure you're not stealing stuff. And besides that, they're a private company and can make whatever rules they want. If you don't like it, go somewhere else.

    The gvt. is making us all over sensitive, you are exactly right. I sold a box of books to a used book store and they asked for my drivers license. I asked why they needed it, as i'm only selling these books. and the girl said its a requirement for homeland security,..i held up my hand and said STOP, don't even talk like that to me, your gonna piss me off. So i guess she thought she was defending the homeland for asking for a drivers license. she didn't get it and i got 1.50 for a big ole box of books. it's crazy, we have to stop looking at everyone like they are a criminal!

    Pretty much everything you would need. i was recording in wallmart once to show people in other countrys this store. I didnt get bothered. But i was worried i would get messed with by their security. I had friends from other countrys ask me what the stores was like in my country, so i decided wallmart was the cheap place to show. They get more aggressive when they see you with a gun in your pocket, or a baton like i carry in my back pocket. I am always armed. No sense in letting the evil people catch me off guard. If you really want to get stuff for survival, go too Tractor Supply. They have everything you need.

    Hello PM101, PEOPLE get the wrong idea that I don't like you and that couldn't be farther from the truth as a matter of fact I hope when TSHF that your in the same woods My Family is in, Your a handy guy to have around. I understand what your doing Helping out the local IDIOT's who will sit around on a log with their mouth hanging open and watch everything go to Hell, and I really do Respect you for it. The One's I find to be real dull witted are the "Doomsday Prepper's who go on National T.V. and not only show you WHAT they have, but WHERE it's at and what type of booby traps they have to protect it with. All Mr. "Rob the Hood" has to do is record those episodes and knock on their doors with an AK and 100 rounds of ammo in their hand and take what they want; Why waste all of your Hard earned Cash when you can take it from somebody who doesn't deserve it in the first place. "Guns, Gold and Real Estate", The Ones with the GUNS will soon own the GOLD and the REAL ESTATE And YES I have changed my mind about your ORANGE Tape, I'll use it to lead all the Idiots down to a Large Clearing surrounded by Homemade Clairmore's and Napalm, remove them early in the game. I'm Sure inspectyerbooty knows what Country I'm from, My Helmet reads USMC on it. "GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA" and stay away from FEMA CAMPS.

    Easiest thing to get, and has the most uses= 18-20''-2000-5000 feet 80 gauge clear plastic wrap. Price range 20-45 dollars from webrestaurant suppliers. The amount of things you can do with this are inumerable. Water collecting, filtering-purifying, fire starter, insulating, yurt within a yurt survival housing, cordage/bow strings, trapping fish or game, wind/fallout barriers, body wrapping, dehydrating, furniture building, hammocks, on and on and on… And no one ever thinks about it, never fails to amaze me. Canoes, kites, windmill blades, winter farming, … So if they dont have it at lowes on a shelf.. go ask the packing manager for their roll.

    Wow dude, make up your mind, Orange Tape or Camo Paint, Which one ? I'll bet you use both together Right ?

    10 out of 10 people die….so it would be wise to have your eternal survival kit ready too! It's appointed once for man to die, then the Judgment. How will you do on that Day? If you died tonight, and God asked you, "Why should I let you into Heaven?", what would you say?
