A bug-out bag is one of the most important aspects of survival. In fact, you could make a very convincing argument that you aren’t truly prepared for a grid-down situation or a major crisis if you don’t have at least one fully equipped bug-out bag ready to go.
But an equally convincing argument could be made that you aren’t ready for a downed grid if you don’t have a bag of weapons and ammo. Granted, you may already have quite a few weapons and boxes of ammo. Nonetheless, if you need to bug out fast – especially in a lawless situation where police are nowhere to be found — it would be much easier for you to have a go-to weapons bag.
Ideally, you’ll want to find a bag that is designed to hold two long guns, two handguns, and has at least three pouches for storing ammo. Several of these kinds of weapon bags can be found online.
What should you store in your weapons bag? Let’s take a look:
1. Semi-automatic rifle.
You must have your main go-to semi-automatic rifle in your weapons bag. This should not be a bolt-action hunting rifle, lever-action rifle, or even a Mosin-Nagant that has become increasingly popular with preppers in recent years. Rather, you will need a good semi-automatic rifle in your bag, chambered in either 5.56x45mm NATO or .308 Winchester. Examples of reputable rifles include the AR-15 or AR-10, Ruger Mini 14, AK-47, the FN SCAR or FAL, or the Springfield M1A.
