    Sorry, I forgot to list that. Yeah, a headlamp and a Phantom, with extra batteries for both.

    Where are you going to go?
    The expressways will be jammed tight (gridlock)...extra gas?

    I guess that BoB will get you home from the office if the SHTF, but why leave home?

    It's a 72 hour bag. I guess you guys forgot a bug out bag means what you need to survive for 72 hours. This compact kit that I can easily throw on my back will get me from anywhere I go back to my house, where I can make a pretty hard stand against anything that comes my way. If I can't make it back to the house, at least I have about 3000 calories in the MRE, and 50 rounds of 45 to do what I need to do. Just like they say you never know when someone is going to "attack" you, and you need your gun, they also don't know when a disaster will happen, and you need you get your family the hell out of dodge. I experienced this in Hurricaine Katrina. I had to evacuate my 10 year old daughter out of there, I would have killed someone for a BOB.

    Scuba,

    Thanks for the pics. The bag looks good. It's better to have it than to not.

    Everyone's BOB or GHB (get home bag) will look a little different, but it's nice to see your compact setup.

    Sorry, I reread my post and thought it was a little harsh. That's not what I intended. The post was intended for people that may be interested in this sort of thing, and to comment about what they would add or take away and why.

    Looks pretty good. I am most impressed with how it is packed to grab and go. Mine could use some help in that respect. I worry about theft so I keep my stuff out of sight (packed around spare tire) so it would take me a few minutes to get it out if I had to ditch the car.

    Think about some items for your wife/daughter. They carry kits of their own?

    Scuba,

    What about a carbine (and ammo), shotgun, and/or other rifle (10/22)? My choice is a RRA Tactical Entry AR-15 (5.56), a Winchester 1300 (12 ga), and a Ruger 10/22 (in addition to my Glock 30/21 .45 ACP). I have seen all these recommended for either the B.O.B or prepositioned in a geocache.

    Also 50 rounds of .45 IMO may be a little on the light side. When the SHTF would be better to have 100 and another 200 to match the carbine you might add.

    I know where scuba learned his tricks just by looking at his bag; what is packed is almost as important as how its packed.

    RANGERS LEAD THE WAY! ALL THE WAY! I have an exact replica of this bag in my wife's trunk. Remember, a bug out bag is supposed to serve you for 72 hours. If I can't get back to my house in 72 hours, something's bad wrong. I have my M1A, over a grand of ammo for it, and my shotgun with slugs and buck at the house. All my BOB serves is just like my pistols. It gets me back to where I have the real stuff.

    I'm no medical expert but you have a lot of specialized items in your med kit. Mine isn't as advanced by a long shot. Some things like a turnicate would be fashioned from the para cord and dowls I have.

    A first aid kit is what I have its enough to get cuts, scrapes, burns, gashes and pain under control. It has cleaning agents (alcohol) a suture kit and butterfly bandages for larger gashes.

    Is my kit sufficient or should I upgrade?
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
