Survival Day 41 (Bulk Common Nails)

You probably don’t think much about Nails on a day to day basis unless you are in construction or need to do a home repair. You buy a box or nails or two and use what you need. If you are like a lot of other people I know, you have random containers of different nails strewn about your shed or garage.

Those loose nails are great if you just need to put together a sawhorse or fix your dog house, but when it comes to preparing for a hurricane, a riot, or the ZA, not having enough Nails to board up your windows and maybe nail a few more 2x4s in place behind your doors means leaving your family and their belongings at risk.

I’ve gotten a little lazy as I’ve gotten older and when I do any construction projects now I usually use a screw and my trusty cordless drill gun. It’s awesome and makes for super strong builds. The problem of course is that in a survival situation I most likely won’t have power to recharge the batteries, and that means falling back to the good old trusty Nail.

I keep a supply of bulk Nails at my bolt hole so I always have what I need should the ZA sweep by and leave my desiring a massive tree fort. Know what I mean?

  • Approximately 67 nails per pound
  • Common nails hand drive
  • Smooth Head
  • Annular ring shank increases pull-out resistance
  • Diamond point for easier driving
