    I know this isn't exactly related to WMD but whatever :mb:
    Figured I'd go over some of my equipment this week and see what needs to be replaced or what needs to be added. I usually keep this
    stuff in the back of my car and I've been glad it's been there more than once.

    Duffel Bag with warm clothing.
    [​IMG]

    Inside we have wool gloves, more gloves, wool socks, hat, jeans, flannel jacket, old sweatshirt, and some old ass boots.
    [​IMG]

    Next is the man purse :mamoru:
    [​IMG]

    Almost all of this stuff are things that get taken when I go backpacking so during the summer and fall it's usually in a backpack with the
    rest of my stuff.
    I've got a liter of water, glow light thing, mini maglight with paracord, Gerber fixed blade, bag of fire starting material,
    toilet paper, first aid, Peptobismol, salt/papper, sun screen, small notebook and pen, and chemical hand warmers. Also, we have some
    10x binoculars (I take them backpacking for watching wildlife and stuff,) 20 rounds of FMJ and 20 rounds of HPs. Earplugs, Swiss Army
    knife, poncho, deodorant, compass, 50 rounds of 9mm FMJ, pencil, and eating utensils.
    [​IMG]

    The Glock comes with me almost always and this ugly son of a bitch is often in my trunk when I go on longer car trips.
    (Please excuse the unpainted receiver, I'm waiting on a sling loop and handguard retaining lever before I refinish the whole thing.)

    I know some of you guys have these, give me some pointers and more things I can add.

    Out of my mind, brb never.
    Oh shut up, this is def WMD stuff. I myself have been meaning to make a BOB/Backpacking bag now that I live out in MT. Looks like you have some good stuff in there. Do you have one of those water filters you can just stick in and drink through? Or even one of the activated charcoal filters where you put a tube into a stream and pump water into your canteen. A cheap CB radio is always good as in the event of an emergency it will be indispensable for keeping tabs on the situation and contacting help if needed.

    i love this topic. ill post mine later.

    however i still think a .22 is the best caliber to carry because you can hold 550 rounds which is better than 50

    Yeah, I have all that stuff with my stove, tent, sleeping bag, and other backpacking gear. I don't keep it in my car because it gets really hot/cold here sometimes and I don't know if that will effect the filtering ability. Plus backpacking shit is expensive and I'd rather keep it in my home than the back of my car all the time :o. I should get some iodine tablets for the car though...

    What is that tiny maglite gonna do? :ugh:

    Add a good whistle, a few thick trashbags (brightly colored maybe), few high intensity glow lights (1-5 min) and 100' paracord (wrap some cord around the glow stick and swing in circle for attention), small radio, a few hundred in small bills, map of local area, and more things I need to add.

    www.countycomm.com has some stuff you can use. Mostly surplus stuff that they make/find for military orders.

    The maglight is there to hold the paracord :rofl: I carry a good flightlight in my glove box and a Fenix P3D in my pocket most of the time.

    Thanks for the trashbag suggestion, I had one in there but then used it this summer as a poncho for a friend who forgot his when we were backpacking.

    the prob with CB radios, and the benefit is that not enough people have them. but the ones who use them will be as prepared as you.

    I have my shizzle separated into a few bags.

    1. Run out of the house naked backpack
    - basic clothing, I prefer packable nylon flashpacking type gear that is light weight so if need I could run with it quickly (convertible pants, long underwear, hiking sox, shirt, rain shell) This can be layered for lots of different temperatures.
    - magnesium fire starting stick
    - tarp for shelter (few yards of multicam cordura :mamoru: )
    - large fixed blade
    - misc and paracord
    - metal cup
    - first aid kit in a nalgene bottle with all kinds of misc stuff, water purification tabs, mini maglight, heavy fishing line, space blanket, etc.
    - hand sanitizer wrapped in duck tape, can be used to disinfect and makes a very nice fire
    - el cheapo walkie talkie (other one is kept in car first aid kit)
    - multitool
    - army jungle boots sitting close by

    2. Long term/camping backpack
    - super light 2 person tent (like 2-3 lbs)
    - titanium alcohol stove
    - titanium cook set
    - 5-6 dehydrated meals
    - small camp/zombie killing hatchet
    - big agnes inflatable pad :bowdown: 2 1/2 " thick but weights about a pound, packs to the size of a nalgene bottle

    3. Zombie invasion bag
    - 9mm
    - .308
    - .22
    - 12g 00 buck
    - bolt cutters
    - binoculars

    You might consider adding a couple bottles of water. This is faster/more convenient than a filter particularly if your just stuck in your car broken down. Also grab a roll of toilet paper and smash it down or get a prepackaged solid roll with no tube. This may not save your life, you'll feel like it did.

    Go to http://zombiehunters.org/ for a lot of good bob stuff.

    Some stuff I'd like to add
    - blood clot pad/kitty litter/gunshot wound sealer upper
    - all purpose .22 with 16" barrel and folding stock for super lightweight compactness
    - fancy crowbar tool that everyone is making these days

    I've never understood those mini pry-bars. When would I need one? Also do research on the quick clot if that's what you chose to carry. I've ready interesting things about them, and found they often do more damage than good on all but certain wounds. For me I keep a couple of sizes of Israeli bandages around.

    And if you want to get boots for something like this, be sure to break them in first. Maybe wear for 2 months then put them aside.

    :cool: thread with a lot of good stuff. I'm woefully underprepared.

    Right now, all I have in my truck is an older pair of workboots, pair of jeans, thermal shirt, t-shirt, hoodie and a poncho. I also have the usual truck stuff, like a hi-lift, flares, basic tool kit.

    In my bedroom I've got a bag packed with jeans, socks/boxers, bathroom basics (contact solution, extra contacts, TP, toothpaste, etc), t-shirts and a hoodie, 100 rounds of 9mm, full sized Mag Light, passport and some $$$. My M&P sits on top of it at night.

    Keep the good info coming. Maybe this weekend I'll start to stock up a little bit better.

    Good luck. For the past 6 months, I've only stayed there once or twice a week.
