Survival kits are a dime a dozen, but Taurus has announced a new line of kits that are essential for any person looking to survive the first 24 hours of a catastrophe.

The First 24 Judge Kit and First 24 Model 617 Kit have both been announced by Taurus as a new standard in survival kits. Both kits have been performance enhanced by AimPro Tactical.

The First 24 Judge Kit is the perfect firearm choice offering the flexibility of .45 LC/.410 capabilities and reloading is quick and simple with two Bianchi Speed Strips. The Hogue Mono-grip offers the control and confidence needed when a user’s life is shaken to its core. It also has a flat, dark earth-colored I-Series SKB case

Inside the First 24 Judge Kit are tools that will assist in the user’s first 24 hours of a disaster. The CRKT Sting knife is a dependable item to be used as a self-defense and/or cutting tool. The Brite-Strike ELPI is a brilliant, 160 lumen flashlight with an on/off/strobe mode which can distract and disorient an attacker. Brite-Strike APALS are incredible waterproof lighting/marking devices with adhesive backings that can be placed anywhere. The APALS have a run time of 80-plus hours, can be seen up to half-a-mile, and have three modes: fast strobe, slow strobe and on/off.

Fire is an important tool for both mental and physical survival. Therefore, the Taurus First 24 Judge Kit contains the Zippo Fire Starter which uses a simple flint wheel to spark water resistant waxed tinder sticks that are included and stored in a waterproof case. The First 24 Judge kit also comes with six AA batteries on a SlimLine Caddy, a Suunto compass and 20 feet of 550 Para cord. All of the items are secured in laser cut foam for exact fitting.

Joining the First 24 Judge Kit is the First 24 Kit available with the Taurus model 617 in .357 Magnum.

The First 24 617 comes with a Black X-COAT finish is the essence of the kit with crucial stopping power and intuitive use. This kit includes two HKS Speed Loaders, great for fast reloading of the revolver. The low profile sights, compact frame and two-inch barrel allows a user to conceal carry with ease.  The Hogue Mono-grip installed on the 617 offers both control and confidence. The First 24 617 Kit is protected with a strong, I-series SKB case.

The inside of the First 24 617 Kit contains the same tools as the the First 24 Judge Kit, but also has a survival blanket.
