And without further ado, the answers to your most frequent questions.

Why have you put together the Talon Survival Store?

The simple answer was because our readers asked for it! Many of our readers requested a place where they could find products we recommend without the headache of sifting through hundreds of similar items.  The Talon Survival Store is a hand picked list of equipment we have used and tested.  We do not recommend any products or brands that we have not tried ourselves.

Why do I see “Powered by Amazon.com” to the top right of the Store page?

In order to maintain a low overhead and bring you more for less, we maintain a working relationship with Amazon to manage the logistics and order processing.  All items you add to your shopping cart will be transferred to your Amazon Shopping Cart when you are ready to check out.  This allows you to find all the items we recommend in one place without any marketing, up-sales, or hunting around to find what you are looking for while still providing you the world class online ordering experience you get with Amazon.com.

How do I navigate the store?

When you first enter the store, you are brought into a our Store Front which includes all of the products we offer.  This list can be quite long an cumbersome to sift through.  We highly recommend you browse our store using our Categories using the “Browse By Catagory” menu located on the top right of the Store page. Many of the main categories also have sub-categories which will become visible when you click on the main category to further narrow your search.  We have worked hard to organize our items into the appropriate categories to bring you the best shopping experience possible.

Why can I not add some items to my cart, but I can still buy them from Amazon.com?

Due to Amazon policies, certain items are only available for sale on Amaon.com and will not allow our readers to add to the Talon Store cart. For these items, you can simply click the “Buy on Amazon” button which will take you the Amazon site where you can add directly to your Amazon Shopping Cart and complete your purchase. These items include but are not limited to, digital versions of products such as Kindle books, Audible books, etc.

Why does the Talon Store not resize completely to fit my mobile phone screen?

The Talon Store was initially designed for desktop use and is best viewed on a computer or table rather than a mobile device at this time. It is a technical issue we are aware of and working to improve as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you have to use a mobile device when visiting the store, you will find the best performance if you turn your phone sideways and navigate the store in landscape mode. Just be sure you have the rotation lock feature turned off on your phone!

Is my transaction secure? On iOS I get an alert that “this form is not secure” when adding an item to my shopping cart.
