I read the article over at www.ammoland.com which relates to this subject and figured I would make a comment here. One issue that I have with the majority of articles that relate to bugging out is that they seem to write from the premise that people prepare to bug-out because they think its the better option. That's not it at all... People make preps to bug out for a situation where there is NO Option to stay home. I think the debate is ill served when they omit this dynamic. If you only plan to bug in, that's only one side of the coin. The plan is to be reasonable prepared for both. We could talk all day long about the reasons that would force you to bug out but I think that most reasonable people can imagine several things that would force you from the safety of your home. The discussion shouldn't be- bug out vs bug in.. it should be how best to prepare for both.
