Infographic: Bug Out Bag Checklist

I enjoy looking at some of these “infographics”. Infographics can provoke thought  and educate – but there are some pretty ridiculous ones out there as well. Infographics can be seen on all kinds of things like container gardening, survival skills, food storage, firearms, first aid, camping, shooting, hiking, backpacking, household frugal ideas, etc. The one below on creating a bug out bag I thought was pretty good so I figured I would share.

Any thoughts on “Building Your Bug Out Bag”?

  1. One thing most people leave off is stationary, envelopes, pens and stamps along with a contact list. You may want to let certain people know where you are and are going. The USPS has plans to continue delivering mail and maybe they can. Even if they can not, everything there is useful except maybe for the forever stamps but they can always be used if shit doesn’t hit the fan.

  2. So many great ideas and so much good ideas! Thank you.

    I can only add this. Ruger makes a Take Down 10/22 and comes with a handy take down bag an can be assembled in seconds with practice.
    In regards to what you have stated….I would like to make a suggestion or Two.
    The Ruger 10/22 in most all variants come with one 10 round magazine. I would highly suggest several “high capacity” magazines….they are out there and readily available…. Usually they can be snapped together and i suggest a bit of Duct tape to secure them together making for a quick reload.
    Hold and remove/eject the Empty magazine and turn the empty magazine upside down and insert the loaded attached magazine let the bolt go forward/ pull the bolt back like chambering a round and you are ready to resume shooting

    So I do suggest several pairs of loaded “High Capacity” magazines in addition to whatever extra boxes or a “brick” (500 rounds) does not take up a lot of space.

    While the .22 LR IS NOT a considered to be a Self Defense round/caliber BUT when it is ALL YOU have ….when PROPERLY PLACED SHOTS it can get the job done.

    Consider a .22 handgun either for back up or to allow another person to carry….IF it is a semi-auto, remember spare magazines for it.
    There are many types of .22 handguns to choose from from Single Action that come with a spare .22 Magnum Cylinder to.22 LR Double Action Revolvers that will hold more than Six Rounds with various brands/barrel lengths and types of Semi-Autos.

    Try to find and add items that are multipurpose…..that have more have one single use….items that can be used for more than one time use or used for multi purposes. There are many such items out there….

    ALSO make sure that you make the pack or bag built for appropriate Climatic conditions ie …Don’t use a bag/pack built/made for Summer/Warm/Tropical weather Climate for harsh Winter/Cold weather Climate or vice-versa
