Gifts for the GLOCK

Husqvarna 450 18-Inch 50.2cc X-Torq 2-Cycle Gas Powered Chain Saw – If you live in a rural area you need a chainsaw. For the price this Husqvarna is an excellent option. The saw has plenty of power and can take a 20″ bar if need be.
Fiskars 7853 X17 23-1/2-Inch Splitting Axe – You will need a way to split all the wood you are going to chop up with the Husqvarna. This Fiskars slitting axe is an amazing piece of technology. You can quickly split wood with little effort with the Fiskars. Trust us, its much easier than a slitting maul.
Etón American Red Cross Microlink Self-Powered AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio – Awesome emergency radio to have at the house or in a bug out bag. Has solar charging along with a crank charger and is much smaller than it looks.

They had three days to prepare and they could order a ton of stuff from amazon and the UPS man had it to their door the next day. The rest of the time 2 day shipping is free + you get unlimited instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video.
