    Got thinking about this the other day, what should you always have a backup for?

    Example: Backup gun, backup vehicle, etc...

    Two is one, one is none. I have a tendancy to have backups for most things I use constantly or feel like I MUST have when I need it.

    That said, I also hate things that only do one thing. Since most of the stuff I have can perform several functions I tend to have accidental backups of lots of things.

    Do NOT tell the wife/GF that you need to get a back up of her. For some reason they do not like that

    I keep backups to just about everything. Never know when your house could burn down, accounts hacked, identity stolen, lost your wallet, etc.
