ok so I have scoured numerious forums, looking for what people are putting into there Bug out bags/kits. I am by no means an authoritarian on this subject but I do have experience as a former member of the us military. so with that being said I will post up pics of my BOK and i will try to explain why i grabed those things to put into it , my kit is not definitive and is ever expanding so I will start with my small pack contents

1) my knife, yes it is a bear grylls knife, i like it. It is strong and tough plus I like having the extra fero rod plus the sharpener it offers.
2) compass/ map (not pictured is my protractor.) if SHTF lets face it gps is probably not going to work and in my AO the terrain is very steep one must know how to navigate
3)climbing webbing, very strong for towing and can be improvised into a harness if needed along with numorious other things
4) gatorade self explainitory
5)distress strobe. if needed for signaling and rescue.
6)pen and paper (self explanitory)
7)green tin ( ha ha thats classified goes boom)
8)bags at top pancake mix, coffee more gatorade
9)extra surefire batteries
10)surfire flash light
11) gloves and beenie
12) 200 Pellets ( more on this later)
13) steripen great piece of gear if you havent heard of one go check it out
14)black bag - prescious metals (gold and silver)
16)Nalgene bottle

Why won't GPS work? Im not saying rely on it but the satellites are still going to be there in most cases unless we get hit by a comet.
I know you're big on your guns in the US in the UK we have less options but I do think air rifles are a good idea for SHTF, quiet, lots of ammo stored lightly and easily.

Obviously in the US I'd be going for something in terms of defensive weapon,
But for small game hunting I'd be going air rifle every time.
You're lucky in the states that you don't have power limits with air guns, therefore they're even better choice for small game as they will have more power and range than what we have to deal with in the UK. I'm getting ok with my catapult now and out to 20 yards it try that first just because with 12.5mm lead balls it's putting out nearly twice the power of my air rifle.
Come on guys, to borrow and americanism, take a chill pill. The Marine, you could do with learning to have a thicker shell, people will keyboard warrior on the Internet, it's just a fact of life. If you put yourself or your ideas out there you will get criticism, don't worry about it.
