Not sure how this could be much more hilarious. A crisis in my craphole subdivision so bad I need to pack up and 'leave' for somewhere, but not so bad that I can't afford to carry 400 lbs of weapons. I guess because, while I'm apparently running from an enemy here in my own neighborhood, I have a plan to fall back and reassemble somewhere in someone else's neighborhood, where my cache of rifles will somehow be more effective. Oh, and don't I wish I had a radio to communicate with my resistance comrades, but I don't have a radio and don't know how to operate one. So I guess I'll just have to rely on those PowerBars, DoubleShots and bottles of spring water to git me through.



Lord. What scenario, exactly, are we planning for? I'm so well armed I can't actually carry it all, but not armed well enough to stand my ground and defend my own frigging block. Maybe, just maybe, this should point out the fact that being armed doesn't mean squat. Being able to communicate with folks you know...is everything. We won't survive because of weaponry or high energy drinks...we'll survive because we can gather. If you can't gather and organize, you're in a hero movie, and god help you.



I'm with Lastrook, firmly, on this one. My suggestion is to go buy a few more pair of tactical pants and maybe a hip holster or two and some first aid kits.

What the crap is everyone talking about?!?! At first I thought this was a joke, but then I realized everyone was serious! I can't think of a single situation where all of this is necessary, sans Hurricane Season maybe. Zombies: we're dead. Nuclear fallout: we're all dead. The Apocalypse: hopefully most of us will be gone before that happens. Oh well, at least I got a good laugh out of this! Thanks y'all! And thanks Bongo Boy for being a voice of reason!

What kind of ammo can (or mags) lets you get three dozen AR mags in it? I can get iirc something like fourteen 30's & four or five 20's in a 50-can.

Returning civility to community, town, city, state and nation as soon as possible is very important to ones long term survival. Yes, one must accumulate tools in order to accomplish the civility mode. In the mean time, register to vote, get involved in your local government and vote in November. Have a great day.
Sounds good! bugging out could be far worse than bugging in.
My only problem is my neighbors suck! lol

I agree, this is America which is just like big business "too big to fail" the gold standard is gone our money holds value not cuz its backed by gold but cuz its backed by the american flag, you guys want to really worry and prep for this type of stuff instead of playing soldier in the back yard of the suburbs go live in a country where this stuff is actually happening, where im from people show up to your house with aks and m4s and if they want your car they take it, if they want to shoot your mom infront of you and then take your car they will, if they want your house they make you sign over the house by gun point while holding your fam hostage, oh you want to get smart and try to resist cuz you think hitting some targets at a range and taking some classes prepped you? Fine heres your daughters hand they just chopped off for even trying it. I entertain these topics cuz its a cool "what if" scenario but take it serious I do not, Americans born here have it so good you do not even know, you worry about this and that right being taken away but atleast you have a right to fight to keep your rights lol, my dad refused to sell hour old house, you know what they did to send him a message? They laid out two bodoes of two teenage boys in our front porch one with a Walmart bag over his head with a rope around the neck, they were my neighbors sons, so my dad sold the house and the fam came to the US so we dont have to worry about that, we came got our citizenship went to college all have great careers and I dont ever want to go back. Guns are a luxury here, where I came from its illegal to own a firearm but the criminals have grenades and full auto rifles. But now back to the topic, my get out gun would be a hand gun, if im getting out that means im gonna be mobile so id want to be light and fast, wouldn't want anything that I didnt need weighing me down

Ok, I'll play... My "get out of dodge" guns would likely be my plain old everyday guns; a centerfire pistol such as a G19 or MP9, and a pocket pistol (kahr cm9 or ruger LCP). I can understand the 'move light, move fast' appeal of handgun-only travel, but personally I would include a carbine; a lightweight CAR-15, with .22 conversion kit and suppressor. That's my on-duty gun and my deer gun; I see no reason for it to not be my 'get out of dodge' gun as well.

I have a layered approach.
First is what is typically a BOB. I've had two next door neighbors have to evac their houses due to fire, one was in the city so not too big of a deal, all the neighbors gave the kids raincoats and such. The first was in the country and the nearest neighbor was a mile away, their teen age sun ran through the snow barefoot to use our phone to call the fire department. So each of us has a backpack ready to go in the closet next to our beds. Kids know if the door is hot to not open it, that they need to go out the window and if they can't get the window open toss their backpack at/through it to break it. Then the backpack has change of clothes, socks, gloves, etc in case its winter as well as spare truck keys so we can get in and move away from the house.
I've also had to "bug out" twice. First time was when my father caught his finger in a grinder and was taken to the ER, second time was when my grandmother was sent home to live her final hours. Both times was leave work, grab what we can and go. So I have the backpacks mentioned above with a min of gear, then each person has a small suitcase and toiletry/first aid kit. All the normal daily items from toothbrush to soap are in the kit, toss it in the suitcase and go if needed. I then have a larger backpack (surplus ALICE pack) that I can toss in the back of the truck with more gear and food. In the safe are a couple long guns, shotgun with a few shells in a holder on the stock for example. The important documents binder with all the important papers like social security card, birth certificates, computer backups, etc should we have reason to believe we may not make it back or the house may be damaged. Then the various ammo boxes of gear, the BORK (Bug Out Reloading Kit), tubs of food and supplies and the little old camper in the garage stocked and ready.
