Firearms Company Unveils Pandemic Survival Kits


The Brownells firearms company has started selling pandemic kits to help Americans deal with any germophobia sparked by the Ebola cases that surfaced in the U.S., according to the Des Moines Register.

The kits don’t cater to an Ebola outbreak, but include filter masks, gloves, medical supplies and cooking equipment. For somewhere between $55 and $110, Brownells supplies the “basic needs” for people to protect themselves from bacteria and viruses.

“Ebola has increased the worry that you’ll be touching things you shouldn’t be touching,” Brownells spokesman Larry Weeks told the Des Moines Register.

Brownells offers a diverse array of survival kits, which even include some comfort food like “tactical bacon,” a canned bacon with a 10-year shelf life.
