Been carrying one around in the rig for about the last 10 years or so. This last summer we were out camping and I got it into my head to see if it still worked...a short PFFT! And then a trickle of powder...gotta replace them every so often... Lesson learned, have not bought a new one yet, but it's on the short list of things to buy soon...

Started carrying one when we began shooting in the desert. Triple digit heat in the summers and lots of brush around. The prices you pay when shooting all sorts of metal things.....

Ahh, never heard it called that before. I keep a fire extinguisher in my trunk though.

Knee and elbow braces might definitely come in handy, as well as plenty of Ace bandages. From playing with this snow and moosing stuff around the house my right knee is blown up. Hurting like hell this morning.

In the back of my Jeep, I have the 'Bag of Shame' - A small Strawberry Shortcake backpack full of everything you'll need while in a ditch, and to be pulled out of it. An emergency 100-hour candle, a pair of thick wool gloves, a handful of hand warmers, a towstrap, some granola bars and a small first aid kit. There's also a pair of blankets back there, a 3ft crowbar I acquired from the garage of a house we rented before we moved out, a small folding shovel and some 550 cord under the seat, and a small folding knife in the glove compartment, along with the usual tire changing stuff. I should put some more first aid stuff in there along with a handful of glowsticks or road flares, too.
Never hit first. Always hit back.
