I don't think that anyone has ever had a thread like this. Gunkid, you can provide a detailed kit list of what you have packed and ready to go AT THIS MINUTE, if you don't have a camera.

Can you list what's in it? I don't mean to challenge, just looking for ideas. I don't have a kit... my plan is to cram all the crap I can in my car in the time allotted only if I can't hunker down. Wife grabs the meds and food, I grab the weapons and clothing/shelter.

cheers

Thanks Hard Ball, I put a fair amount of work into putting it together. The best part about it, is that it works in the field for my requirements.

Garand, your kit is truly impressive. Will you tell us how much it weighs, please. Of course it helps that you know how to use it.

1) Webbing: 20 pounds

2) Ruck: 34 pounds

3) Patrol Pack: 18 pounds

Keep in mind that this is only a 3 season kit and your kit for the 4th season should depend on the severity of the temperatures that you expect to encounter. I've always believed if the balloon ever goes up, that if you have to bug out you have 5 levels of preparations;

1) Your destination

2) Your mode of transport to that site

3) Your ruck

4) Your patrol pack

5) Your webbing

You start living off the kit in number 1, then move to number 2, then move to number 3, then number 4 and finally number 5. The firearms that you choose should be those that you feel should serve your circumstances best.

Now lets not get silly, ok!!! Thanks for the comments about my choice in firearms. Also remember you guys invaded us 3 times, in 1779, 1812 and 1865. Also remember that the Canadian Militia, Canadian Native and a small contingent of British Army Regulars kicked your asses at that time. We are very proud to be Canadians and friends of the American people. We are not closet americans. Unlike the current trend of Americans wearing T shirts with the Canadian flag on it overseas. Does this you closet Canadians????

You can throw the British Regulars out of that. That was simply another case of them having to get the Canadians to do what they couldn't.

Now that sounds like fun! Do we get to shoot movers or just twitchers?
Ooops, forgot to ask, are the rest of us invited (looking for a place to get out of FL to. Preferrably one with good shooting. Sounds like you have a good suppy of free targets, and I have a good supply of shovels. . .)
