Whats everyone got in their BOB?

Post  Gunnyhiway on Mon Jun 01 2009, 21:10

I have the following in mine:
Small field 1st aid kit ( milspec)
Insect repellent
Salt tabs
Sunblock
The Tool ( multi tool / Gerber)
Kabar knife
Three 15 rnd 9mm mags (empty)
100 rounds 9mm ammo
Five 20 rnd M14 mags (empty)
280 rounds of 7.62
Five 20 rnd M16 mags ( empty)
240 rounds of 5.56
3 days MREs
Mil spec compass
GPS
Small binoculars
1 - set of 2 way radios (2)
2- flares
50' nylon rope
Breakfree bottle, patches and grease

Sounds like alot but you would be surprised how small it really is, a bit heavy but small.

This is some of the "grab and go gear" along with the obvious.

I have other gear and supplies in an Alice pack/web gear/shelter half along with various ammo pouches and canteens that would also go with me on short notice.

Bug-out Kit - Short term

Post  GunsNLipstick on Fri Oct 23 2009, 16:19

Some of you may be familiar with the "72-hour kit" which can be used as a short-term emergency bug-out kit in case you have to leave your home in an emergency or keep in your car (emergencies don't always happen when we are in the comfort of our homes). This is a list I found on a website posted by Kellene Bishop. You can make your own and stuff the items in 1 or 2 bags/back packs depending on how much you want. You can also purchase ready-made kits online. I have enough stuff to make our own but went ahead and bought a couple of kits. I need to make up one for the dogs - not leaving them behind. We keep them under the bed in case need to leave really fast. We also have extended supplies in several duffel bags to load up the car if need to leave for longer time. Below is a long list of items to consider:
Basic 72-hour Emergency Kit (*This is a list of ONLY the Basics)
Clothing
• Leather gloves
• Shirt, pants, socks and shoes
• PVC poncho with hood
• Bandana
• Hat
• Sweat pants and top or other light workout suit
Defense
• Handgun
• 50 rounds of self-defense ammunition
Note: Rather than “in” your kit, it should be on your person
Food
• 3600 calorie bar OR (3) MREs of desired flavor with MRE heat-packs
• Lexan fork, knife, and spoon
• 20 feet of fishing line, (4) small hooks, sinkers, and a bubble

Heat/Light
• Older style Bic lighter (flint spark can be used when fuel runs out)
• Wind-proof, water-proof matches
• Magnesium block with striker
• (3) 12-hour cyalume lightstick
• (2) 4-inch wax candle
• (6) hand warmer packs
• Sealable sandwich baggie with small quantity of dryer lint
• Flashlight
Medical
• 72 hour supply of personal medications
• First Aid booklet
• (4) Butterfly bandages
• 3-inch foot wrap
• (3) gauze compress

• Small bottle of hand-sanitizer liquid
• Bug repellant
• Lip balm
• Eye drops
• (4) Safety pins
• Small selection of band-aids
• Alcohol wipes
• (2) Feminine Pads (for males also as these soak up blood and other liquids fast)
• Small quantity of salt (a few teaspoons)
• Small quantity of baking soda (a few teaspoons) (1/2 tsp. soda + 1 tsp. salt + 1 qt. water for shock)
SAS Essential Survival Book
Miscellaneous
• Whistle
• Mirror
• SAS Essential Survival Book

• 20-foot length of nylon rope or utility cord
• Marking pen and small Memo-pad of paper
• Small plastic hand shovel
• Duct tape
• Compass and basic map of your area
• FRS or GMRS radio
• $2.00 minimum in change (combo of nickels, dimes, quarters)

• (3) large garbage bag

• This list of items
• Day-pack with multiple outer pockets to carry it all in
Shelter

Notes
• Customize this list to the individual

Yeah - it really is a lot so customization for your own situation is definitely needed. But - if you have to grab 'n go, at least you have a few days of supplies until you can figure out what the deal is and what to do next. We just added to each kit, the Eton Red Cross hand crank/solar/battery radio flashlight. It is nifty and small - about 5in x 2.5in x 2in. I actually got it at Public's! - a little pricey at 29.99 but it is around the same price on the internet.
