I keep a bag in my vehicles all the time. It contains, 3 pistol mags, 3 AR mags, first aid kit with suture and burn material, cargo pants and shirt, fire starter, extra knife, 100ft paracord, compass, 2 surefire lights, water purifcation, 3 MRE's, 2 bottles of water, 2 squeeze packs of Gatorade, Small set of binoculars and a rain poncho. My family used to think i was nuts but every family outing someone has needed bandaids, a knife, or advil. Now they all keep a small bag with them.

I don't consider mine a BOB. I think of it as a everyday survival bag. I use something it it daily.

Dave G, Calm down sunshine, its not D-Day yet and don't just blame the black guy. Its also the republican idiots as well who lets this crap happen without wiping the source off the planet. It took 10 years to get Osama bin Ladin who gave his blessing to attack us on 9/11. When the U.S. Gov't wakes up and grows a set to throw a strategic nuke up the butt of these scumbags we will always be target practice for them. Sometimes to fight terrorism you need to react like one! Or maybe we just need to be more proactive!

Clinton is the one who let Osama get away... even after he attacked us the first time. George W went after him after the first time. Under George W... other than 9/11 itself which nobody could have predicted, we had 0 attacks.
I trusted W to keep me and my family safe... but I just can't trust the current president...

Uh, brother... respectfully... hmm... ok, here it goes.

If President Clinton let Osama get away then what did George W. Bush do for 7 years after September 11th?

Clinton tried to hit him with a missile and failed, but then passed on all intelligence to the Bush administration in 2001 as W did for Obama and Obama will do for the next guy, why didn't Bush act on that intel?

So, other than the BIGGEST TERROR ATTACK IN WORLD HISTORY... we had no attacks under George Bush, and that makes him more trustworthy than the current pres under whom we've actually killed Osama, and the Al Quieda #2? And by the way... no terror attacks with him yet either...

...and you have a VERY powerful rifle apparently, but only 30 rds, yet over a hundred round for your pistol. Half your bag seems fairly dedicated to your guns and not actually survival gear, and what does it weigh so far with all that stuff? 100lbs? So, unless you actually live somewhere that will get hit... Why are you going to bug out? Where are you going to go, and for what reason and why do you need a grizzly bear rifle to do it??? You said in a previous post that you lived next to a cotton field... Are terrorists targeting the cotton industry these days?

You might have forgotten that GWB was president for 8 months prior to 9/11. And do you think any president somehow slacked off in trying to fin OSL?

If you have a point to make use positive reasoning.

Most of the blame would be Reagans' for training him and arming him. Not to mention giving him and the rest of Al Quaeda what they needed to fight the Russians.

The bag looks good. I might suggest an EBR rather then a bolt action. I am sure you will need to tweak it more though for your needs and your locale.

If I were a terrorist, I'd be reading this and laughing my ass off at how you sit around and blame different political parties for the other's inability to stop terrorism. Maybe that's why they have been successful. Too much BS about republicans this and dems that...Not enough actual doing their jobs period.

Could have taken all that surplus and put some really nice security in....but no. One lame missle, two wars against non-terrorists, so much finacial crime there aren't enough jails for all the bad dudes, and bailing out junk @$$ US cars, and a bogus health bill that no one knows what or if it will do anything?

Honestly, if I'm a terrorist, I'm sitting down, watching the Pittsburg / Ravens game and letting you all Eff yourselves into oblivion. I don't need to help.

That is so bad....:rofl:

I have to agree with others, where are you going if there is a terrorist attack?

Granted if you live and/or work in NYC, DC or some major US city it is good to have a GHB and a BOB. I was watching a few history channel shows on 9/11, and if I worked in NYC that day I would want a dust mask, some bottled water, some basic "eat on the move" food, first aid kit, good walking shoes, extra money, a multitool, a flashlight, and something like OC spray (hey its NYC, can't have a gun or good knife) to defend my self. Throw it all in a basic school backpack, and that is all I would need.

People get too wrapped up on Mad Max wartime manuvers. You can't walk out the door and march down the street with a deer rifle slung over your shoulder when terrorist attack a nearby oil refinery. Eat on the go food, water, first aid, good walking shoes, poncho for rain protection and basic shelter, lighter or other fire starting equipment, decreet protection (handgun, knife etc.) is all you really need in a BOB.


Also as someone who was in the Army and who is still an avid hiker and camper, I laugh at the BOB and GHB people make up. Looks great on Paper, but put the stuff together and "hike" 10 miles with it. How is carrying 50lb of crap feeling? Can you move fast if you had to? Is your tactical molle backpack comfortable carrying heavy weigh, or even better, is it falling apart after the first mile?

Right on! It is now 9/12. So what is in your 9/12 BOB? Or 9/13 or ???

The number one killer in this country is still Heart attacks, two is Cancer and three is Strokes. Way down the list after car crashes and homicides is a terrorist event. You're preparing for the wrong thing that will kill you.

Great point! Maybe we should all start working out and eating better. When I first got into guns I began buying prepping gear. I guess I'm over it now.

Interestingly, after 9-11 I checked the boards and everyone wondered what happened with all the bug out plans. Seems that everyone was so prepared to bug out but when the time came, no one bugged out. They all stood in place at home.

Fortunately I don't have a need to change my plans at all. I already carry the items for 9/11 on any day of the year. I don't see a high probability of an incident this year. We already have a POTUS that's working to support AQ in Syria. They've got their man in the White House. Why risk spoiling all that come from that?

Because back then the whole preparedness movement was still in it's infancy so to speak. Everyone's idea was to bug out in case something happened. Terrorism was still a far thought in those days and only a few cared who Al Qaeda was. Most preppers in that time were more prepped for our own government and the UN since they still had the after taste of Bill Clinton.

Like I said, back in those days the idea for those into preparedness was to bug out. So when 9-11 happened everyone wondered why no one bugged out. No one bugged out because there was no need to. Lessons learned over time.

I'll agree that people are much more aware of preparedness since 9/11/01. However I would disagree on the other points.

Prior to 9/11, I was working on preps. Back then and now, I find 'bugging out' to be a high risk option that should only be used if the risks of staying outweigh the risks of leaving your home.

The reasons for preps were not the UN or Slick Willy. The reasons varied. When I was a kid, I grew up in S FL. My parents had preps that were geared toward hurricanes. When I moved off on my own, I thought it best to prepare for a variety of concerns. Terrorist threats were included in the list. We had many terrorist attacks that came before 9/11.

And on 9/11, I recall people panicking in my area & wanting to take their kids out of school. Seriously...planes are crashing into the towers in NYC and people are concerned that Nowheresville Elementary School is on the list of likely targets? Uh no. And we had zero intention of 'bugging out'. The thought never crossed our minds.

What? No toilet paper listed??? How about hand cleaner?

Your rifle is too big and heavy. You are carrying way too much ammo. Marines patrolling on Guadalcanal carried 25 rounds. Their job was to sneak and peek, not get into gunfights.

50 rounds of pistol ammo should suffice.

You only need one change of clothing. Maybe 2 pairs of extra socks.

Get rid of the mess kit. Get a military canteen cup and a spoon. Eat canned goods (Spam, for example) if possible. Lessens the chance of dysentery.

Bugging out and humping in the boonies is not for the faint hearted.

Just incase nobody has noticed but the terrorist have already won.
They gave us the patriot act more power to all other branches of government and many restrictions on our freedoms.
We have spend Hundreds of Billions around the world and wasted precious resources including patriotic people abroad and at home chasing after 3rd world ghosts and have more people hate us then ever.
Muslims have infiltrated us at the highest offices and are taking us apart from the inside out.
And not only that the same people that flew planes into our buildings and bomb us in Iraq and Afghanistan are now receiving cash, guns and ammo in Syria from us.

So yes their objective has won out.
