Well I don't have a BOB per say, but I do keep a backpack for hiking and camping which is always loaded with enough dehydrated food stuff and energy bars for several days. The only item I can think of that has not been mentioned here is Fire Steel. Basically a flint rod and flat steel to strike the flint to start fires for camp, cooking, or signal fires if need be. I also keep for fire starting a small pack of solid fule cubes which I slice a little off a cube to help start the fire. Fuel cubes help alot in wet contitions.

Check out Light My Fire - We sell fire

I have the little guy, good for about 3000 strikes and the BBQ guy good for about 12,000 strikes.

I think I bought these at a REI store.

Ooops missed that one. So let me think. Ahhhhh got it.

I have a 26 watt fold out soft solar panel that will recharge and run some electronic devices, such as a laptop, cell phone, protable radio, I-Pod, hand held gps, etc... It folds down to about the size of a small laptop case and is very light in weight.

Check it out: www.brunton.com/product.php?id=420

I snagged this at a RV/camping show about a year ago

I consider my 1911 and the means to feed it as one item.

The point I was trying to make was that, hypothetically, the firearm and ammo of your choice were already in the bag. You don't need to grab your 1911 and ammo if it's already in there.

Nice choice BTW

A bigger Bug Out Bag??

I got the BIG brother to this baby, in Black, as my BOB. It's got enough room for most of my gun safe, all my ammo, a complete 3 day survival pack, a complete medical kit and everything listed above, plus a few extras.

In that case, if I lived in America as opposed to California and was able to have a firearm in my BOB already, I'd take my fuzzy slippers. I love toasty feet.

Hopefully you won't run into any fast moving targets. That is unless your gun safe and ammo consist of a 1911 or 2 and 100 rounds. Judging by your posts though I find that highly unlikely. Wait a minute... why do you need a gun safe and ammo if you don't have any firearms left after that tragic boating accident??
