There you have it! I tried to add as many Amazon links as I could so all items could be bought one place if wanted. Feel free to shop around and see if you can get even better prices! If you have any questions, please feel free to send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, any gear you purchase will not do you any good if you don't know how to use it. If you are looking for like minded individuals that you train with for free, or are wondering why you may want or need this gear, and you live in Michigan, you can check out the Michigan Home Guard HERE
You should also check out urbantacticsllc.com if you are in the Flint area for some advanced firearms and hand to hand training.
We will be compiling a list of patriot groups and recommended instructors from around the country, so keep your eyes out for that!
Stay safe, train hard, and have a great day!
