My son and I are putting together a survival pack for gun safety class. I know the basic stuff, compass, map, mirror, flint for starting fires. But what else would be a good thing to have just in case?

How big of a survival pack are you thinking?

Some sort of shelter is critical. Something as simple as a sheet of plastic to keep the wind and rain off or better yet a large piece of leather or vynal becuase it won't tear.

Something like the silver foil blankets that come all folded up the size of a deck of cards is great to have for warmth or for a shelter.

A good knife is essential, hatchet would be nice as well.

A whistle will help alert rescuers.

A rope is always a very useful tool.

And maybe a small first aid kit.

You might not be able to fit all of these into your survival kit but a knife and the foil blanket are small and very important so I wouldn't leave them out.

If you use a small back pack you can get a lot of stuff in there.

I would also add a few energy bars of some sort and also something to boil water in.
