    it dont suck that is a good instructable and i did it!

    you jus put a homemade .22 together with a small pocket knife and a bit of rope in a tin? loose the gun, destroy it, if it's not registered. if ATF finds you you get a criminal record because this is a felony. Apart from the fact that this is a useless gun in a survival situation. Keep the knife, the rope and the matches and look up other instructables survival kits to see what you could add. DESTROY THE GUN IF IT"S NOT REGISTERED

    Actually in most states it is completely legal to make a homemade gun that does not have to be registered. it is completely legal to do so as long as you dont sell it, this is where the trouble starts. When you sell a gun then it needs refistration the new owner has to go through an fbi background check and all this crazy stuff. But again federally it is completely legal, statewize, it differs state by state. Like texas or montanna or alaska, its legal just make sure to check your state laws

    It was a friends gun that i borrowed to add to the tin and he told me it was registered. Plus having a gun ready to hunt is better than taking the time to make something to hunt with.

    yeah, sure.

    I hope for you that he's telling the truth. This gun is the worst choice to hunt with short barrel so not a lot of fps, no sights and probably not rifled, your better of with making a harpoon, spear or bow and arrows

    i hate to contradict you but as a long standing member of the gunsmithing community, i would like to point out that any firearm made by a fully fledged US citizen and kept for personal use not for sale requires no registration as long as it meets all ATF standards for a legal firearm ( IE: does not fire in fully automatic mode, or have both a stock and a barrel under 16 inches). I have personally consulted with Members of the ATF many times on this matter to ensure the firearms i work on are legal (I also have to work with 922R compliance but That's a whole different can of worms).

    very true and a firearm like that does not look too safe to shoot, coupled with that it also has no sights and a tiny barrel.

    hey use a Gerber muti tool or a lethermen because you can have a knife saw screwdriver and much more with it

    Studies show that the average survival situation ends within 72 hours, either by rescue or by discovery of the body. In that amount of time (and even longer) you can survive on stored body fat. That being the case, don't waste resources on hunting, trapping or fishing. Put water purification tablets, matches or a lighter, and a compass in there.

    Add a small knife under the rubberbands, then it will be perfect! A great knife would have to be top on my list for most important things for survival.

    i like how u say to make your own, u have to make the kit based on a long list of factors, like what kind of weather and your environment that u might get stuck in.

    That is one of the greatest altoids survival kit I have seen!!! nice job!!

    A friend of mine puts takes apart a dental floss box  and puts the spool of floss in his kit. Says it has a thousand uses.

    He's right about dental floss having many uses.  It's very nice because it can take a lot of weight without breaking, however I recommend that you get waxed dental floss as it is less likely to slip around while you are tying it for something.

    The value of putting things in a tin is what you choose to put in there. I'd think some source of fire and a knife would be a good idea, what do you think?
