Don’t Leave Home Without It!



Say Uncle lead me to AOL?

(AOL?  Are they still around?)

AOL lists for us 18 Things Navy Seals Won’t Leave Home Without (ending with a preposition, no less!)

Not that many of us are SPECOPS types…


The U.S. nabbed the Al Qaeda leader believed to be behind the 1998 embassy attacks in Africa on Saturday.

On the same day, a Navy SEAL team raided a house full of Al-Shabab militants two weeks after the terror group’s deadly attack on a Nairobi shopping mall.

We think it’s safe to say that America’s elite — the Navy SEALs — have been keeping busy.

Thanks to Matt Bissonette, a SEAL that was on the Bin Laden raid and wrote the book ‘No Easy Day,’ we know what they likely brought with them.

In his book, he details getting ready for deployment in Norfolk, Va., when he asks a more experienced SEAL what he should bring.

The senior SEAL stopped, looked at his new teammate and said:  Dude, what do you think you need to bring for deployment? Load it … Bring what you think you need.”

Most of us probably don’t need a bullet-resistant helmet, night vision goggles, body armor plates and suppressors, just to go to the office.

In fact, we should probably think more like a Boy Scout than a Navy Seal.

Be Prepared.

  1. Amen to that… Scouting DID teach us that, didn’t it!

  2. Be Prepared indeed. More of a mindset than a hardware issue *to me* but I’ve been wrong before.
    I have to laugh sometimes at what people on gun forums say they carry on an Every Day basis.
    BUG, ammo for primary and backup, sometimes multiple flashlights and sometimes numerous knives.
    I often wonder, “Do you clank when you walk?”

    If I’m out in, or headed to BFE it’s a different story….
