Just One Use items


A friend of mine just wrote to remind me of a good book. You
and the Police is an excellent book by Boston T Party. Pays
for itself in just one traffic or other ticket.
There are so many "just one" items around. Fire
extinguisher, tourniquet, attorney on retainer. Makes a good
subject to discuss. What are some other "just one use" and
it's paid for itself items?
Rotary rasp or file tool
Actetylene torch
Lathe with digital monitoring
First aid kit
spare tire for the car
bear spray when hiking
Other items?

What's in the bear spray, napalm?

AKA bear repellant, AKA pepper spray, it burns without combustion. There have supposedly been instances where noobs have applied it like mosquito repellant. I prefer units with a heavy lead content, myself, say 10mm to 12 ga. In some states you can get bear repellant where pepper spray is outlawed. Same cans, different lettering.

Machinery's Handbook as a last resort when finally looking something up after you thought you knew it all. Cutting threads comes to mind.

Jim sez "What's in the bear spray, napalm?" Naw, better if the spray contains sex pheromones, so you can through on your hunting companion while you get Hell out of there..

It's just extra 'hot' pepper spray. The canister usually has a bit more volume and range as well.

And the Bear Spray tends to shoot farther and with more volume, then small cans of "pepper spray"
There are a couple advances of pepperspray over bullets 1. Doesnt harm the animal 2.Tends to temporarily blind them so they cant see you to attack.
On the other hand...#2 is really really Iffy.....
Carry a caliber suitable to stop the attack, and use pepper spray as your first line of defense..but be also prepared to quickly switch to the caliber you chose if the spray doesnt fend off the attack.

pheromones, so you can
How fast do you have to run to out run a bear? Faster than the guy next to you.

They can be sneaky, though. My uncle was trout fishing on Pine Creek in PA many years ago, and stepped out of the stream to eat some blackberries off a bush. He was just getting into it when he heard a "woof," looked around, and saw a second-year cub eating blackberries on the other side of the bush. The bear spun around and ran off -- but not before discharging fully digested blueberries all up and down the uncle.

1) "CPR for dummies" book 2) A toilet plunger (may be used in conjunction with (1) or as an item for its originally intended purpose - either way...priceless! 3) Impact wrench (learned that one after the event). 4) A Big Hammer (paid for itself several times over).

On Mon, 08 Mar 2010 17:18:05 -0800, the infamous Winston scrawled the following:
I've been buying Victorinox Classics for a couple decades now. Target has them on sale for $10 every once in awhile, and I even got one for one of my girlfriends who often borrowed mine. I've had red and blue ones, but not the pink translucent or USA versions. The little tweezers on them are very good.

they're good for years and years, not just one use.

Let the Record show that Jim Wilkins on or about Mon, 8 Mar 2010 16:37:51 -0800 (PST) did write/type or cause to appear
I've friend who acquired the name "Snuffles". Out on the trail one morning in Yellowstone (where he worked) came round a bend and there was a small bear. He froze, it froze. Then the bear came towards him, took a couple sniffs, turned around and went back the way he'd come. When the bear was out of sight so did Mike.
I've also heard of blackberry pickers being out and realizing that on the other side of the bramble, are some bears. So as long as everybody doesn't make any sudden loud noises, stays on their side, and there are plenty of berries - alles gut! But now you understand why women tend to chatter.

Close enough!

Any tool from Harbor Fright, more than one use is a bonus!

Depends on ones relations with ones children. Id have slavered meat sauce and put some fresh uncooked steaks in my sons shirt pocket if we had been anyplace there were bears of any note.
