    Bug Out Bags Photos

    Share pictures of your personal bug out bags.

    Bug Out Bags Photos-bug-out-bags.jpg

    From left to right
    Austin Pink & grey bag is my 5yr old daughter's bag which weighs about 7-10lbs

    Nike woodland camo bag is my 8yr old sons bag which weighs about 9-12lbs.

    East Sport green & grey bag is my wife's which weighs about 15 to 20lbs.

    USGI issued ACU camo bag is my personal bug out bag and weighs about 30lbs.

    While we're still managing to perfect the contents of our bug out bags (its on going process that I'm not sure will ever be finished) I'm working towards making my bug out bag more a get home bag because I'm going to be traveling and staying out of town for work very soon.

    In addition to my family's bug out bags I also have a range bag, that I'd like to carry with me on a bug out and also a USGI army canvass duffel bag that's about half full but would be filled with additional water bottles and food and could easily hold 80 to 100lbs of food and gear. These other bags I'm talking about can be seen in this picture:

    I'd really like to see other members post some photos of your bug out bags.

    I knew a guy who had a Barbi backpack in his trunk. He even had a cheap Barbie sticking out of it and a coloring book too. Inside the bag was a pistol and ammo. He said if anyone ever stole or broke into his vehicle he was hoping the crook would dismiss the bag and leave it there.

    Those all look more like get home bags to me.. Unless you've got a BOL that's relatively nearby, they won't carry enough to last for much of a bug out. You might want to consider upgrading yours and your wife's bags to medium/large alice or molle type packs so you can carry enough to last you 72hrs to a week.

    Food for thought.

    No, he actually will not be 8 til later this summer but the wife and I talked about it and I want to get him a BB/Pellet rifle first (not to ever be in his sole possession) maybe for the upcoming birthday. I do see kids his age at the range, and once I feel he's learned good gun safety I'll let him shoot the .22 under very close supervision. Times have changed I think I was running around shooting everything with my pellet/bb gun from around age 7 (god forgive me for all the small game I killed and didn't eat) and my uncle's let me shoot shotguns, 45's and even AK47 when I was that age. First time I shot a 45 revolver I was about 7 or 8 and I got nice little bruise on the forehead from the recoil but I held a steady grip from there after. We also lived in a much more rural environment as young boy than what I've so far been able to offer my kids.

    As for the kids and their bug out bags, they participated in putting all the stuff in there. My son asked why do we need this, and I told him just in case we have have another hurricane like Hurricane Ike and we need to leave home fast we have all the stuff ready to quickly. I also told them we'd go test all the stuff when we go camping and the daughter wanted to go that night.

    Another funny thing with the kids and making their bag they both have a whistle in them and my son blew that sucker so loud in the house that my daughter was bashful to even really try. I explained to her that its important she show me she could do it in case she ever got lost while camping for her to blow it loud as she could so daddy could find her. She wouldn't do it for me, but while I was at work the next day she woke her mother up with the whistle out of her bag and was ready to show me she could do it when I got home from work.

    I got my first BB gun at 12, and had very little supervision. We would go bird hunting in the desert, and never hit a thing. It was just fun being outside. It's great to get your kids involved. They know the reason they have to have these things, and why they need to be prepared. They have their own personal pride in their own bag.

    Just a heads up on whitles; go to a good sporting goods store, and get a Fox 40 Pro. They will be a little pricey, but you will not find a better whistle. Plastic, pealess, shrill, virtually indestuctible, I have used them for many many years.

    Dad gave me a BB gun and a cheap scope on it. We'd go hunting, i'd stay at the camp and shoot birds, squires and anything else I saw. I rarely missed. Later as I grew up I felt kinda bad for killing the animals for no reason other than sport. Should I ever have kids I'm going to try to instill on them the importance of life and to take animals as a resource to be used and not as sport as I did when I was a child.

    Also, the story with that BB gun continues. My friends and I would have 'one pump' bb gun fights. We'd have leather jackets on, sun glasses. Anyway, long story short, dad found out one day and he took an Ax to my bb gun. Yup, that was the end of my BB gun days as a child.

    Really nice #prepping gear! Stock up on ammo tho, even if you don't use it it will be a great bartering item when the shit hits the fan! It will be worth more than any money you have!

    That really sucks

    It is a PITA to reacquire and repack all the stuff. Plus it just makes you feel kind of depressed and angry that our world has folks with so little morals and consideration for others.

    I think it's very important to have a bag for each family member. Remember what you can carry and only what you can carry is most important. Bring only what you can't make or gather. Skill & knowledge are most valuable as your knowledge and skills can produce what you can't carry.

    Otis, for your glock are those FMJ rounds? You may want to consider an HP. How does that back pack work over the tactical vest? Nice and comfy? Love that rifle by the way!

    In those clips they are target ammo for conceal carry I use Speer Gold Dot at $23.00 for 20 its not pratical to have the 300 or so rounds I have any way I killed a 250lb hog with with that ammo as tested hogs represaent the closest example of the density of a human as possiable with a .40 cal at 180 grain you get hit with any kind of ammo your hurtin for certain. wear the back pack loose its not a problem.I knew youd like my SAIGA .223 - 5.56 drop it in the mud dont clean it she will still fire.You have to adapt what works for one person might not be for another and there are many variations kinda like politics.

    Nice! I'd like to see what people have done on their own to compare with what uncrate has.

    After getting half way thru the item price list of the uncrate.com bug out bag I realized that azurevirus purchased a bug out vehicle for less than cost of this set up. Very nice bag. And is it just me or there 5 tightly rolled up marijuana cigarettes in this picture left of the machete?

    Otis, we got something in common! The wife got me the 7.62 version as a coming home gift from Iraq. Been wanting to put rails on the handguard and switch out the buttstock with an adjustable with pistol grip. Clean setup you got!

    Overkill, thanks for posting. Do you have anything for shelter in there? It is difficult to tell what some of the items are.
