Ok, so up untill now my BOB has consisted of my 10/22 ruger: a few boxes of shells: a small tackle box with hooks, string, a few kinds of plastic bait, some sinkers and a small multi tool: a simple .22 gun cleaning kit: a few hunting knives: a 100' spool of 550 parachord: a 5x7 tarp: a small hatchet: a mess kit:a fair first aid kit intended for just me: SAS survival guide: 3 small MRE's and a bottle of water purification tablets. I'm expanding to a proper stature. I will be bugging in a vehicle, so i dont PLAN on hoofing it for any distance with my gear, but i want to be able to take bulk of it on foot if need be. My questions are as follows: How many firearms are you carrying in your bob? - I've added my ruger 9mm to the list, and i really want to add a weatherby vanguard in .308, but dont want to sacrifice my .22 for small game intent.. Are the 2 rifles a bit much to carry into the bush in a bug out scenario? Should I consider switching off for a smaller .22 like the ruger charger or the henry .22 survival rifle that breaks down and fits into its stock? I plan on adding a revolver to my bug out repertoire- How much ammo should i bring per weapon? .22 ammo is nothing, i can carry tons of it without much weight expenditure - so I plan on bringing atleast a 333 winchester bulk pack with me.. maybe 2. .308 ammo on the other hand is not so light... so the question is how much .308 ammo should i take? I'm thinking just 3-4 15 round mags for my 9mm is plenty - as it is a last resort weapon. Same mentality going the revolver - which will probably be a snubby .38 like the LCR or a s&w or something - and bring a 50 round box - maybe even less. What is the practicality of a serious battle knife? Would investing the upwards of 200$ into a cold steel gurkha kukri be valid? I don't plan on looking for confrontation, but i wanna be the victor if one should arise. What is a reasonable overall pack weight for a 215 pound 6 foot tall adult male? Same question for a 5'5 130 pound adult female of medium strength. The packs have frames and support straps. And any off the wall suggestions that a normal thought process wldnt bring to light wld be nice. I have a VERY expansive otis tactical gun cleaning kit that i have added about 20+ items to and i feel it covers any and all gun maintenance needs i may run into. I have also beefed up my first aid supplies considerably. IF YOU ARE SO INCLINED - pictures and lists of what your bob consists of/plans on carrying all your gear would be VERY MUCH APPRECIATED! btw - i am planning on making a full on indefinite survival situation bag - NOT a recommended 72 hour emergency kit. I want to be ready to overcome any obstacle that may come my way. My girlfriend is also currently making a BOB. It is not as extreme as mine, it is intended to aid her ability to be self sufficient in a bug out situation if something where to happen to me.
