I know it's commonly asked what is the best bug out weapon. But I'm wondering if my decision to bug out with a G26 is a good one or should I opt for something more like the G17? I also own a .45 acp. I have 7 spare 8 round mags totalling 56 rounds of .45 acp I can carry. It may sound like overkill but I'd like to potentially bug out with 100-200 rounds of self defense ammo while still carrying a handgun that's concealable yet service size (I shoot bigger guns better and further). My Bug out plan has changed drastically since I've been reading the advice in this section and I now decided to take ALL shotgun ammo out of my BUG out BAG. It's just not smart at all for me to carry around a shotgun unless the Zombies have really taken over. I've come to the conclusion with doing history research and examining potential realisitic SHTF situations that my BUG out plan will be to survive long enough to get to a FOB or help center i.e. Red Cross. In a total Gov't collapse or post nuclear war world (if I do survive that) then my plan is to BUG OUT to my parents then BUG IN with my parents. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
