Prepping Items of Interest at SHOT Pop-up

The thing that really grabbed me though was when the rep pointed out photos of Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria. Apparently FEMA provided generators for which there was no fuel. But donated SilverFire stoves provided cooking ability and boiled drinking water – which ran off of the abundant blow-down and scrap wood found virtually everywhere after that disaster. I’m going to be looking further into this company’s products as well.

Another item which I was excited about was the Harvest Right home freeze-drying unit. I have some experience with home-canning, and also with a dehydrator (in fact I brought my own home-dried jerky and fruit leather for SHOT snacks), but this is a whole other ballgame.

Although even the smallest home freeze-dry unit isn’t cheap by any stretch of the imagination, it opens up whole new vistas of food storage possibilities. Those of us who like really NICE guns probably wouldn’t even bat an eye at this price point.
