There are two bags you always need to have at the ready.  1- Your Bug Out Bag and 2 – Your Armed Response Bag.  Your Bug Out Bag should contain your survival gear, extra food, water, clothing, first aid kit, etc., while your armed response bag, which can be used seperately or in conjunction with your Bug Out Bag, should contain your ammo, including fully loaded rifle and pistol magazines, shotgun shells, fixed blade knife, etc.

My armed response bag is the Voodoo Tactical extended deployment bag in OD green which is a shoulder, sling mounted bag with 4 separate compartments and is molle compatible.  In the front compartment I keep 50 shotgun shells, In the rear compartment I keep 4, Ar-15, 30 round magazines, in 1 side compartment I keep a set of binoculars and spare batteries and in the other side compartment I keep spare ammo pouches and 2, 10 round 45ACP pistol magazines.  There is also a front loop for a small flashlight which I keep there for quick access; and I also have an Elite Forces fixed blade knife and sheath weaved through the molle straps for rapid deployment.

    I may not be as prepared as you are in some aspects, but I’m good to go with a bag like this. 🙂 My bag has loaded magazines for my SR22 and AR15 (20 round mags coupled together). In addition I keep plenty of extra .223 and 7.62×39 (for my SKS) on stripper clips ready to go. I’ve got ear and eye protection as well as spare batteries for my optics and a small portable cleaning/repair kit in case things go wrong. Oh, and I’ve ALWAYS got a knife and flashlight on my belt.
