Whats in your ready bag and why? I thought that I would start this thread so fellow minded FRs could compare notes and learn. Everyone will have different regional needs so keep that in mind Here is Mine: My pack is a hydration backpack made by Platupus in un scary blue color Everything is vacuum sealed with one of those food saver thingies
First Aid: Epi-Pens x2 Z-pack Antibiotics x2 Bynadrill caplets Acetominimin caplets Super glue Suture kit Various dressings Topical Antibiotic Laminated card of useful meds Hand Sanitizer
Nutrition/Sanitation: Spare smartwool socks Wet Napkins Water Filter Water Purification chemicals Collapsible cup Tuna pouches PB Bars Sunflower seeds shelled Gum Toothpaste/Brush Insect repellent Sunscreen MRE Backpacking stove +small fuel bottle
Preventative Meds: Pt-92 9mm (similar to m-9) chosen for low cost yet dependable 4 9mm mags in addition to one in pistol 2 30rd 7.62x39 mags (rifle is next to pack) Bayonet for rifle Cleaning kit and spare parts for rifle/pistol Vac Packed 7.62x39 about 50rds
Other Stuff: 5 liters of water in hydration bags GPS Batteries rechargeable all devices use the same size Matches Poncho Small blanket the foil kind 2 frs radios Solar charger for batteries Surefire knockoff led tac light Scanner preprogrammed for local and fed agencies
All this fits in one pack and weighs about 35 lbs. This is my warm weather pack in the winter we have different packs My wife has one similar in the first aid/food/sanitation she doesnt carry as much ammo and few electronics to keep it light for her
Don't need more underwear, Muttly:
The O/U is for Trap and Skeet. Still deciding on either an Ithica, Remington or Mossburg Punp Action 12 gauge.
I am bringing only .256 Win Mag so if I get killed, they can't fire my stuff.
Liberal mindset if ever I seen it.......:o)
Muttly WILL have his revenge.
Lessons learned from recent NO bug-outs
Only you can use it and with any caliber almost.....:o)
I e-mailed Reeder to ask if he's still doing the cylinder conversions on L and K frames.
Stay safe PM !
Thanks I'll go read it....
Outstanding inside info from the Escape from NOLA crowd.....Thanks for the link !
Stay safe !
The escape pod concept will be great, if the USCG is not ordered to close the port of San Diego.
Which hopefully they will not be ordered to do.
On the plus side, the escape pod can carry 100s of gallons of fresh water, 180 of diesel, and I can make electricity 3 ways. We've spent 60+ days at sea non-stop (Guam to Cali) so I know we could do 100+ if it came down to crunch time.
I think all guests are also expected to bring 100# of propane.
Great stuff. Muttly's 8,638,948,622,047....cents :
I have lost rings before. Even off of my WARM, furry, live paws. Pass on that one.
Medussa is a great idea, and note...a REVOLVER. If an L-Frame ENHANCED could be had, a 7-SHOT!...even better. The L cylinder is said to be even longer than an N-frame's, so longer, heavier bullets could and should be used, if possible. My only major question (ain't I a pain in the butt...? Cute, though) is how strong is the arrangement which holds all this different stuff in....will it break under heavy loads...???? Nice to have something else to fire all this 9mm Export ammo in...tee-hee....but I feel secure behind this here gold-plated hopper-fed Kolibri Gattling gun. They'll rue the day they messed with ME!
About ACTUAL extended social-breakdown death and dying everywhere starving masses on the prowl.....no law no how nowhere..all bets are off stuff (did I qualify that enough for our legal department, Johnny...??)..
.......a double barrel, double trigger 12ga., hopefully a 3" or 3 1/2"...and a neatly applied hacksaw blade should be the most useful tool in the family protector's kit...bar none.
So...12ga. 3" mag. pump shotgun, with pistol-grip stock, side-saddle ammo carrier, perhaps magazine extension to 18" barrel....great.
Double barrel, double trigger 12ga. 3", 16", pistol grip.
Have a nice day. I hope it lasts.
Did I mention WATER PURIFICATION equipment as the most valuable thing....everything else being "negotiable"....food is everywhere. Only, some times it shoots at you first.
Can I bring green chile and steaks instead? :)
The best firearm to have is the one you have :) let's not turn this into the ford v chevy thread :)
Squantos and Covenantor, thanks for linking the great High Road thread! Mandatory reading!
Yes, enough to feed the 800 of us who will be showing up.
(After reading The High Road thread, Squantos should be prepared for at least that many "friends of friends of friends" to arrive.)
Yep I'm watching and reading the high road thread on water issues and not one of em has discussed the simple boiling process of purification yet....all about gadgets and gizmos, filters drops etc..... An old copper tea kettle w/ some salvaged copper tube will make a water distilling device ya can use on the BBQ grill or in a small camp fire or camp stove to make "pure" water even if it was contaminated with salt water or POL products.....
I'm really thankful I'm not there of course but the lessons learned here are gonna be valuable.....link me to the threads on such in NOLA as ya see em please....
Stay safe ya'll !
Sure room for all refugees west of the rio grande...when it snows make snow cones....just don't eat the yellow ones.....:o)
We use 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 2 to pull a trigger. I'm lazy and I'm tired of smiling......
ping for later
Classic, I'm stealing that one!
