Update on Fry’s electronics

Posted: January 2, 2011 in plan, tribe

I went to fry’s electronics to find a part to adapt the solar power water pump I have and while there took a scouting mission of the store.

In general, Fry’s Electronics does has not a lot of useful stuff for the post apocalypse. However, what they do have might be come in very useful. It is stuff more for long-term survival (such as protecting the compound) rather than for immediate survival.

Useful things there.

  • Portable Solar Panel Systems (Sidenote for future research: Check out company sites for Sunforce, Sunsel, and Tamiya.)
  • Locks
  • Batteries
  • Entry Defense Alarms (run by batteries) Doberman is brand name.
  • Handcuffs
  • Pepper Spray
  • Metal Detectors
  • Gold panning kits
  • Very life-like toy guns (to be used for training purposes)
  • Praying mantis kit (for growing insects for fishing)
  • Binoculars
  • Telescope
  • Night vision goggles

I am sure there are also a bunch of other electronic widgets and plug-ins that would be useful to have if one had basic electrical skills, which I do not.

And of course The snuggie for warmth and security.

    What do you train for with a toy gun?

  2. How to defend the compound.

  3. I started by reading the list and thought, wow, homey has a kinky weekend planned. Then I read the rest. 😦
