only if shipping could get me my zombie slayer before they reached my front door

1. One day, one deal.
2. One day, one deal on each site.
3. One day, one "deal" per sq. inch.

At least 8 "official" items a day, a shirt, plus the usual moofi offering (not counting woot+ items).
I think there's enough.

I'm sitting in my bunker right now. I have all the survival gear I need to last me for 5 years. I don't need survival woot.

Wouldn't be survival.woot without guns...and since woot won't allow guns it'd just be pretend.to.survive.woot

vote-for5vote-against

Maybe, but not to be prepared. Only if it was something really cool.

zombie.woot would probably be a more marketable name.

It's not a terrible idea, but there's really only so much you can advertise. Knives, crossbows, med kits, survival kits, and bulk food would probably cover the vast majority of what they could sell. It would be a pretty small rotation.

I will never understand how some wooters, particularly over here in deals.woot, always complain about there being too many deals. ٩(`д´) "BACK IN MY DAY...!"

Anyway, I might, but it would be very infrequent and it wouldn't be for any prepping nonsense. Skills are more important that goods when it comes to that anyway.

@mtm2: Depends on the situation. Why do you need to shoot stuff to survive? Tom Hanks didn't have a gun when he got stranded on that island.

Why don't we have one already?

Woot could choose from a billion possible new departments. A survival dept might be fun to watch, and the discussions would be great to follow. But there are more mainstream areas they could go (hunting&camping [still that no-firearms issue], audio, food, health, books, family, travel&auto, etc.)

@zippy the pinhead: I'm not sure how I feel about refurbished Omaha steaks, though.

I would be a lot more excited for a beer.woot

It could be an acme style department that sells traps, air-guns, fishing equipment with Anvils, and Pianos to drop on cartoon villains.

I think this would be a great idea. There are so many products out there (not just weapons) that are fairly inexpensive and could either help save your life or help you out in a pinch, like a window punch or portable water purification system. I wouldn't mind seeing deals for flame-less flares, survival multi-tools (flashlight/compass/whistle all in one for example), Kevlar paracord, emergency mylar blankets and other multi-use items. The great thing about these types of products are that they can actually be put to use whether you're in an emergency or not (I'm thinking camping and hiking). Not to mention that if these items had their own .woot, they wouldn't flood the other less relevant categories.

Only if it was called BudK Woot.

@mybestuser1: You mean all the Acme products ! Jet roller skates are one of my favs.

@agent019: BudK sells acceptable quality products but for survival reasons I would prefer slightly higher quality.
