    Red Rock sling pack (first impressions)

    Its a full size 1911 and two mags should fit no problem. My bag is olive drab and hasn't attracted undue attention. I've only had friends comment that they like it and one tourist type kid freak when my gun was showing(which is perfectly legal where I was hiking in Montana and no one else had blinked all day). I had been fiddling with the gun which is wby it was even visible at all. The bag does a great job of holding and hiding it. Otherwise itdoesn't seem to attract attention.

    Red Rock sling pack (first impressions)

    I have one. I've been using it for day hikes for about a year. You really can't put a camelbak bladder in it, unless you are willing to leave it unzipped. It is not very big but it fits a lot of stuff. I've had 2 water bottles, a small survival kit, and a collapsible bowl for the dog in mine besides having my 1911 in the conceal carry pocket. You could use it as a get home bag I think.

    Otis gun cleaning kit

    Does anyone have one? Do you love it/hate it? Why? I've been lusting after one but I can't decide if its really worth the money especially since I have a bore snake that works in all of my rifles and a regular cleaning kit. I admit part of the appeal of the Otis kit is that its all awesome looking. Oh its small too so it could easily live in my BOB when not being used.

    What's in your vehicle?

    I haven't found a way around the freezing, but the botttled water you can buy at Costco seems to hold up pretty well. I haven't had any break but I try to put new bottles in every month or so and use the ones that have been freeezing and thawing. Since a case of the bottled water is $4 I'm not out much if one does break. Its probably not the most ideal solution but its the best I could come up with, there are days I would forget my head if it wasn't firmly attached to my body, so no way I would remember to put in water everyday and grab it back out of the car every night.

    Fear not, I actually have enough guns to make most men green with envy. I just never bought a single one. Dad didn't know what to do with a girl so he treated me like the boys. Haha!

    Thanks Rebel I noticed that it was not true after I posted. Still a scary thing to think about. I'm safe in that nothing is in my name, I never had any guns or food. Hell I can barely cook

    Mostly my mom,(her and 2 of my 4 brothers are practicing LDS) has been buying stuff from the canneries for years. Same with my oldest brother. So if they ever end up getting names Mom will be on it.

    Well my family is screwed if the LDS cannery thing is true.

    Ok the food thing isn't written into it, it was an argument against The National Defense Authorization Act. For all the good it did. :mad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbvift3Kb34&feature=player_embedded

    Isn't that close to what one of the bills that is supposed to pass/ may have already passed does. Something like having over 7 days supply of food could get an American citizen detained at Guantanamo Bay indefinitely... Off to find the link about it.

    in a bug out situation.......

    I do a lot of reading, not much talking, but I could actually respond more. I'll get on that. If the rifle or fishing pole is my only way of getting meat at all I am positive I want a rifle, give me read meat over fish any day of the week!

    in a bug out situation.......

    Rifle hands down for me ( a lady (ha!) if that matters). I'm a terrible fisher. I'm bugging out from a landlocked state to another landlocked semi arid state.

    how old are you?

    Knowing someone is 20 makes me feel less like a crazy young person 24.

    What's in your vehicle?

    I don't have a specific kit or anything yet. I am working on it but generally I have: Year-round at least one hoodie (sweatshirt) a tool kit 1 folding knife pens paper a snack bar of some sort a bottle of water for me a gallon jug of water a collapsible water bowl (for the dog) a flashlight a blanket (sometimes a smelly dog one but in an emergency I doubt I am going to care) a couple "dog" towels (you know either stained, old or a little ripped) Napkins or paper towels (to check the oil) an ice scraper some dog cookies a couple leashes Once cold weather hits I try to remember to put a 0 rated sleeping bag in the car. If I am making a winter drive anywhere out over 50 miles away I always put it in the car along with an MRE (that has a heater). I have a fair bit of dog supplies in the car because its pretty rare that I go anywhere without my dog. It just makes sense to have stuff for him. I'm going to be adding: a first aid kit and a couple rolls of vet wrap a can of dog food some candles and matches I can't think of anything else that I should have off the top of my head.

    What got you into survival/prepping?

    I grew up in an outdoorsy family and I was always into wilderness survival. And the other prepping stuff well my mom is Mormon so food storage was emphasized. And frankly my dad was always of the mindset that there is no such thing as too much ammo.

    The Walking Dead ~ Zombie Talk in General

    Alright I'll admit I like the show a ton. I just finished the first season so the second remains to be seen. Yeah they lack common sense (food for the love of god grab some food you giant idiots!!!) but I also think that is going to be pretty common in any real disaster SHTF end of the world situation. Not everyone who survives is going to be prepared, have knowledge or what not, some people will make it through sheer luck, or who they know. I know people I would drag along to save even though they are not necessarily useful. Side note I think they are making Shane (the former partner, wife-stealer) less likeable because they are going to kill him off. Also agree on the crossbow. Never thought of it before and it seems brilliant to me.

    What's Your Take on Reloading?

    I guess I'd be a mix of 2 and 3. I don't personally reload right now because I don't own the needed equipment the moment. I don't have to buy it either my family just has to divide up the reloading stuff as well as the guns that belonged to my dad and then we will all have the stuff. I am looking into getting a Lee Loader but until then I don't. Instead I have the ammunition fairy, my older brother, I shoot as much as I want and return the cases to my brother and he hands me back and equal or greater number or reloaded ammo. Its a pretty sweet deal for me and he really doesn't mind, he regularly tells me I need to shoot more.
