Nice setup. How often do these companions travel with you, and how far from home is a normal trip?

Work for me is about 55 miles away, but I WFH a couple days a week. Having more than a pistol if /when SHTF happens while a couple days walk from home would be nice.

well 2 weeks ago I was in Plymouth Utah, this past week, Tampa Florida and the next 5 weeks will be Pascagoula Mississippi with me traveling home for the weekends.
I did have an AR pistol in it for the past year but until the brace fiasco is cleared up I'm trying other options, past few weeks was my AR carbine but it has to be in 2 pieces to fit, the ks7 fits better and it's 18.5" barrel does pretty good with 00 and I can hit 8" plates fairly regularly at 50 yards with slugs so it's a solid choice

I have something very similar for my Ruger carbine.

Don't have pictures.
My get home/travel/call out bag consists of the basics you would find on the average duty belt + trauma/blow out kit, backup battery to charge phone, extra cash and a weeks supply of meds.

I like the idea of the compact shotgun and that Cold Steel axe has many uses!
Reality is that I am not going to be walking extended distances as I am not physically capable. Weight alone limits the shotgun to a relatively fixed location in a support role.
On those occasions where I travel further from home there is usually a long gun secured in the vehicle. Considering the political climate, that will seldom be an AR pattern rifle. A 16" 30-30 or 45 Colt lever action carbine fills the role with less ruffled feathers in the case it would ever need be employed.

Well if ruffling feathers are a concern in deploying a rifle for self defense than my vote would be deploy the AR. It鈥檚 already on the ruffled feather list and I don鈥檛 believe lever actions have made that list yet.
A few weeks ago what was most often available is now classed as an SBR. Guess I could still keep it in the truck, but it looks and feels ungainly with the 16" barrel and 9" M-loc handguard. Also haven't fired it with the 16" barrel.

Oh yea, test cases are for others.
I've been told I have a very good case for challenging the brace ban under the ADA. I'm just not interested in having my life and family under a microscope to prove a point.

How much does your pack weigh? And how do you like that shotty? Did you by chance do a range report that I missed?

fully loaded the ks7 weighs around 7 lb the belt holds 25 shells,plus the 8 in the gun,all together that's pushing 9lbs+/- , the Warhawk is probably 1.5-2 lbs. my backpack with my meds, first aid kit, and a change of clothes is always beside it, if things go bad enough I need it the gun bag will be abandoned after I empty it. the ks7 will be on its single point and belt on my waist, Warhawk will either be in my hand or strapped to my pack plus will be wearing whichever EDC I'm carrying that day and the2 spare mags I always carry for my pistol so total load out will range between 18-20 lbs before I throw protein bars and water from the truck in....more than likely if taken by surprise I'll die but a little bit of forewarning and heads up I'll have better than average odds of making it , I know how to move, hunt and navigate without roads or GPS and I'm in better shape than most in their 20 -40s even though I'm pushing 52 this year馃槈

I really like the ks7 mine doesn't have some of the problems that plague the one I see on YouTube but I do run it with force and not baby it, it is pretty brutal in the recoil department but not nasty like some lightweight 12ga guns I've shot, I wouldn't recommend it to a novice but someone used to shooting tactical shotguns could adapt to it's quirks.

Get home bag and war bag are two different things. I'm too old to hump heavy gear. Light weight and high speed.

I have a hunker-down bag and a get home bag in the truck. The H-D bag is an old alice pack with tarp shelter, waterproof stadium blanket, mini stove, couple of days water and food, fishing kit, cold steel tomahawk, various small survival items and a 10/22 takedown in it. It's far too heavy for me to carry these days. It's in case i have to shelter in place near the truck. The get home bag is a Maxpesition sling bag. It has a Beretta 81, .32acp, four spare mags, 100 rounds of ammo, kydex holster as backup for what I'm already packing, spare knife and a flashlight. If i have to hoof it, I'll scavenge what else I have to have from the H-D pack and leave the rest with the truck.
