Want to say hi and see if anyone else local to me, am around Deptford area.

I am 50 and a disabled Navy Vet. Would welcome some company shooting at the indoor rang and outdoor one.

I am going to be putting two bags together for my wife and I, just incase of an emergency.

I will use the search tools to look back at past posts to help answer questions, but would also like to get currant answers.

My wife and I live in an apartment second floor (just sold my house) so will try sheltering in place, until we have to get out. Depending on the problem it may be better to just head to one of our three locations. Western PA, northern ME and West VA. I have a BOV with a few things in it and know I have to add a few things it's a Toyota FJ. I also understand we may only be able to get so far with the BOV and may have to abandon it an head out on foot I was finally able to sit down with my wife of 30 years and explain to her why we need to be prepared. She does not like to talk about things going bad but is now on board. My oldest daughter (30) and her husband are also on board. My younger daughter does not want to talk about it, I have tried numerous times but she wants nothing to do with being prepared. So she will be on her own I can't force her.

My oldest daughter and I are working out different meet up options and things that go along with that. My first and biggest hurdle IMO will be getting over the Delaware River.

Ty for reading my rant lol

Ok my first question is what backpack to go with? I have looked on this site, internet and other places. I kinda like the Rush 72 for myself and Rush 24 for my wife. With a add on MOAB so we can separate and go searching with the smaller pack, also don't want all my eggs in one basket. So we would appreciate help in this area.

As for protection I have that covered except for something to reach out and say hello . Have my 5.56 and 45cal wife has 12g and 40cal. Was looking for opinion on caliper opinions 308 or 30-06.

Could also use info for maybe some like minded people in my area, not the Zombi nuts please

Thank you for listening
God Bless
Vince

Hi Vince,

Welcome to the board. Fellow Vet here. I used to work around Pennsauken and travel the I95 allot. In the event that you'll need to bugout at least you have allot of options. My personal preference is the Kelty redcloud line of bags. In the SHTF situation you don't want to have really cool looking gear, esp if you're not in a group. For the .308 i would have to see what your budget is. AR10 maybe?

Also there is a group in NJ/PA on this board in you do a little looking.

Good luck!

What's your level of long range shooting? I personally like the scar17. You can reach out and touch someone and be effective in a fire fight.

I had a Weatherby 300 Win mag that I used for hunting in PA, I think my farthest kill was around 175Y give or take. I would shoot at the local outdoor range and had good groupings at 300 Y ( all within the black ). I guess with-in the prepping world I am ok. In the brush in ME hunting, I have family throughout ME. I favored my lever action Henry 45/70. I don't have the Weatherby anymore had to sell it back in 08 after loosing my job when construction went in the toilet. I was a commercial / industrial electrician. So this is why I am looking for opinions on a new rifle to get. I still have my Henry would never part with it to many family memories. I have saved up for the new rifle and don't want to buy because it looks cool, I want something that will last and will work is all types of weather conditions etc.

Ty in advance
God Bless
Vince

Default welcome Vince

I am abut 5 minutes from Deptford. I am in a similar position with not all my family members on board. Which outdoor range do you go to? I am also new to preparedness. So I am still learning. I am also looking at a 308 or 30-06. It seems like everyone has their own favorites, so I guess it's just a matter of options.
Take care Vince

Hi Vince! Welcome to the forum. Sorry that I did not post until now.

I live in the general area as you do, but I have a difficulty with considering our bug-out location (“BOL”) in Western PA. Although that is a great geographical area, the problem that I have is that in a SHTF scenarios when we could not shelter in place and would have to evacuate far away, the bridges across the Delaware River are going to be inaccessible. I am not counting on them being open.

Or do preppers in South Jersey count on getting across Ben Franklin, Betsy Ross, Commodore Berry, or Walt Whitman in a serious emergency?

Default Sorry Its Been A While

Have been really busy. I now have my three rifles a 30/06, 22LR takeDown and a .556/.223 and grea scops for wach also three hand Guns .40S&W sig .45ACP sig carry size for each and a compact 9mm Ruger LC9s with green laser went with a Hidden Hybrid holster Love it. I also went with 511 tactical Rush 72 for mewith extra pouches also the Rush Moab 10 and Rush 24 and a few pouches and Rush Moab 6 for my wife. everything is ready to go. No reason to get into detail of whats in each, there are a million treads on that i went with what i think is best for us. I also made up a kit for each of out trucks. they are all ready to go. the best tnk that has happen is we have decided to get the blank out of NJ. will be moving to a location in WV where my oldest daughter and husband live. will be out of NJ in March thank GOD if not for my wife i would be there already. but we have been together for 33 years and i would never leave her. the only thing i will miss is my youner daughter and grandaughter. I am trying to get her to move but she wants to finish colege first. I will miss also the Ocean but will enjoy being away for all the hustle and bustle of this area. I have learned allot from reading different peoples thoughts on the site. then used that to make up what i wanted.
