  1. We are creating unique products and sharing new ideas. JP has always been a dreamer and has always looked at items thinking about how they could be made better, More useful or different altogether. As a company we want to do just that.
    We realized not long ago that it is never too late to start something if you believe in it. Therefore, the idea of JP-TAC was born. We want to encourage the group of people that we feel a part of. We want to encourage being prepared. We love the type of products we create. We will always be improving something or delivering something entirely new. Starting a business is never easy so as of this writing we are on the ground floor. We have an amazing design, engineering; Tactical Pen, Tactical Gear, Survival Gear, Survivalism, Tactical and manufacturing team that collectively have many years of experience.

  2. why is survival equipment so expensive,ordinary people would never be able to afford such prices for equipment. so i guess prepping is only for well off people. Disgusting.

    1. Hi Derekgough, Firstly thank you for your comments. I would answer you this way: the more you know the less you need to carry. Having all the gear and no idea is very dangerous as survival equipment can only help you survive IF you know how to use it and have practiced using it as well.
      A survival kit in a small Altoid tin with the correct items in it would cost around £10, and you could but these items one at a time and design your own kit.
      You can of course buy expensive already made up kits that will do the same. But it really boils down to what you know, your attitude and practice, practice.

  5. I have a golden Virginia tobacco tin packer with loft insulation then report mesh on top which I then fill with methylated spirits for cooking, is there any other fuel I can use. I also have another tin with burned cotton to act as a fire starterwhich I ignite with a stick that I scrape which lights it in a second,I also have thermal blankets in cases of dire emergency. I live near the Brecon beacons so woodland and forestry is abundant where I have constructed a 8ft long by 7ft high and 7ft wide log cabin which has been there for the last 18 months which still remains secret, it initially takes me nearly 2 hrs to get there by foot from the nearest footpath. It has taken me nearly 11 months to built the cabin including roof and one small windows. Others I know want to prepare but find it to expensive to even start and I dare not tell them I'm prepared or where I am situated within the mountains. About half a mile from My cabin is a large stream from which I can obtain water after putting in purification tablets, I'm afraid to say it but something is around the corner whether it be war or economic collapse, especially with the price of fuel dropping like a stone,somethings up and it's not going to be nice. Prepare while you can now while you may have a chance.

  6. I would say that to a degree you are well sorted. May I make some suggestions.
    I would look into rubbing Vaseline into cotton wool balls as fire starters.
    To make them water proof cover them in melted wax, which also makes them stay alight longer.
    Why not use the dryer lint from your drying machine placed into each section of cardboard egg boxes and cover with melted wax.
    You could buy some BCB Dragon Fire Gel.
    But whatever you take with you will run out sooner or later.
    So look for natural tinder, Birch bark will burn even when wet, dry grasses etc.etc.
    You must keep your BOL secret, trust no0one.
    Have you thought about starting a local prepping group=safety in numbers and more heads are better than one.

  7. Thank you very much tom for your valuable thought on cotton balls in casein great idea. I have not thought of doing a group of others because I did not want anyone else knowing where my cabin is as I want to keep that just to myself. Even my wife doesn't believe in prepping and things I'm off my head for doing so but despite ridicule it will be for myself in the event of something happening any time soon.Sone people can't be told so I gave up trying a few months ago. I am not looking forward to bugging out far from it but it will be something I'll have to do like it or not. Again many thanks of I also got bottles of magnesium for fire starting or whatever they call the stuff, I Also recently bought a 170lb crossbow for protection and for hunting food
