  • TEOTWAWKI: A Tale Of BoB and Two Nines

    My Bug-out Bag:
    My personal BoB is a system for Survival/Evasion. A little something to help me to get to a place of safety in a crisis. The Condor Hydration Pack is the basis for carrying the basics that I will need. Water/Water Purification Tablets, Basic First Aid, Food, Fire Making, Lightweight Poncho for Rain/Shelter, a GI Casualty Blanket, Extra Ammo, Small Field Cleaning Kit for the Pistol and Carbine, Fishing Kit, etc.
    Water is the most important thing in a Survival Situation. One cannot live long without it. Food is a Morale/Comfort item. One can actually go a couple of weeks without it with no ill effects unless one has a medical condition that demands it. There's three days of rations in there.
    Basic First Aid should not only include a basic first aid kit, but any medications that one might be on whether prescription or OTC.
    The GI Casualty Blanket is an interesting item. It is like a super space blanket but it is Olive Drab on one side instead of Reflective Silver on both sides. This item will not only help keep you warm, or help provide emergency shelter, it will help hide you from such technological wonders as Thermal Imaging, and Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) if you get completely under it
    Defense:
    In the Frontier Days of this nation, Ranchers, Cowboys, Farmers were blessed to have Rifles and Carbines that shot the same Ammo as their Handguns thanks to companies such as Winchester and their Lever Action Rifles and Colt making the Revolvers.
    I like this concept of having a Carbine/Handgun Combination for Survival scenarios. Though a Pistol Caliber Carbine would not be my first choice for general fighting in a war, it makes sense to me to have this available for Survival/Evasion and having something a bit "more" in the Trunk or Truck should the SHTF. A "Duty-sized" Handgun is generally good for defense at 25 or maybe 50 Yards, whereas a Pistol Caliber Carbine is good for 150 Yards or more. This is why many Firearms Trainers recommend a Pistol Caliber Carbine for use as an "Urban Rifle" or Home Defender.
    The Weapons that I have chosen are a KelTec Sub 2000 9MM Carbine (S2K) to go along with my Springfield Armory XD9 Pistol. The thing that I love about the S2K is that it has not only proven to be reliable and it's very lightweight, it Folds to just 16 Inches which makes it both easlily packable and it will conceal easily under most knee length coats.
    Here are a few pics of my BoB System:


    S2K Folded on top of Pack:



    Will it fit in that lil Pack?

    What magazines does the Keltec use? Can you use the same magazines as the XD? Good get me home set up.

      This one uses Glock 17 Mags. I like the feel of the XD9 alot more than the Glock 17 so, Ammo interchangability was more important to me than Mag interchangability.

      Thanks!

        I think that is a "Smart" setup. When you present a threat to others you die at a distance before you ever know who shot you and why. When people think you are just 'Passing Through' most of the time unless you are somewhere you should not be they will leave you alone.

        Keeping the ammo the same is also a great idea. I often wonder about the thought process of having multiple weapons with different calibers when one may be enough.

        One thing if I may?

        I notice it seems like just about every "Survival Kit" has some kind of 'Fishing Gear', I often laugh because in many cases it is a time waster when other game can be harvested with ease.

        My kit has something few do, instead of a fishing kit I picked a hand crank generator. This is useful for recharging batteries, providing light and anything you can use current for. Heck stick two probes into the soft moist ground and turn the crank and worms come to the top, great for an actual fishing pole to use as bait. If you are hungry worms are enough good for food too.

            The M4 can have a scope mounted on it, with return to zero mount and "see thru" bases. That means that the "normal range" wing of the peep sight can be set for 40 yds, the long range wing set for 80 yds, and the scope set for 120 yds, with the subsonic loads, of course. Then, all you need is a rangefinder or accurate perception of range by "eyeball", and you can count on getting a brain hit. Given the marginal levels of power of subsonic ammo, chest hits are likely to let the enemy scream a lot, or fire some shots, and if such occur, there went the "advantage" of subsonic loads, right?

                    Thus the recommendation for a cork gun. No flash, little noise. You may be on to something there.

                        So tell me why so many .223's come with flash suppressors....all flash!

                        I'll tell you what, lets fire at each other at 600 yards on a nice windy day, you with your .223, me with my WW II 30.06, and see who survives. Hmmmm?

                        Not saying you won't hit me, but who is more likely to survive if we were BOTH to hit each other? Which in the conditions stated there is probably less likelihood of you hitting me in the first place.
