Building your Bug Out Bag: Weapons
Your weaponry may vary because of financial reasons or the area you live in. I suggest having some sort of pistol at the very minimum. I prefer automatics, because I don't want to be fooling around loading revolvers when SHTF. With that said carry a few extra mags and ammo. I prefer the .45 because of its stopping power.
An AR Variant is always good. It can be used for self defense as well as hunting. The AR weapon system allows a multitude of modifications. The fact it holds 30 per mag also gives you a tactical advantage.
A bow and arrow may also be a good addition since arrows can be reused. You may also want to looking into some hand-to-hand weaponry (i.e.knife or baseball bat). In the case ammo runs out.
Also consider Pepper spray as a non-lethal weapon.
