Your Opinon: Top 20 Must have in BOB

Recommended Posts

I live in a dense Urban area, my & wife's pack are merely to serve as something to get us somewhere else; for which i also have plans & gear. Being that the thread was asking for 'top 20', my basic essential 'top 20' are also contained in these smaller packs. I dont have any plans on eating ROck City Chipmunks or pigeons or any other urban wildlife. Even most of the squirrels here seem to be of african descent...

M&P .45ACP will work just fine. And giving very serious thought to making a rifle purchse soon. Trust me... this lil pack is just a small fraction of my prep efforts.


awesome. I've found that my 9 is alot more reliable if I rest or replace the clips regularly, however I'm in the middle of a trade for 4 rossi 22/410 kits for my family, so I won't have it much longer anyway. I have the Bodyguard as well, and I've put about 1000 rds thru it. It's stays loaded and I have never had a jam (thanks God).


Take care

My Mp .45 is brand new and trigger is still a bit stiff. Ive been working to get rid of my 'jerk' by using a MP .22 THe trigger on the Mp .22 is just alot smoother, since its probably had 20k+ rounds through it and is still very nice. Accuracy is nice too. WHen practicing with MP .45 I have to sqeeze trigger alot harder before it goes off. I tihnk its a 3.5 pound trigger.


I have 6clips for the .45 and have been working them in with SnapCaps at home.

I am guessing Navy means the "black" squirrels Michigan is known for. They are "black" phase grey squirrels and Michigan's lower Peninsula is the only place I've heard of them being common (not sure tho).


And Navy, no worries, they make good gravy as

there is a large population of black squirrel in the omaha/council bluffs area.
