Range bags and or packs can be interesting things.  Many of us form a love/hate relationship with them and are constantly looking for something better as our handgun transport needs to the range, at the range, and from the range change. Many times range shooters use the exaxct same bags, which is not an issue, when the bag is kept at your shooting station.  But at some ranges they need to be kept away from the shooting station and left on a table generally ten to twenty feet behind you.

If I want to know where my range bag/pack is; and make sure no one accidently walks off with it; it needs to be different and it needs to stand out from the others. The one I currently use is shown below.  It works well; has all of the pockets and internal and external pouches I need for handguns and related supplies, and it definitely does not look like everyone elses.  The apocalypse/zombie theme colors are simply an added conversation piece.  When range bags/packs are all together on a back bench or table; having the ability to find mine quickly, when I need it, is now a very easy process.

It sometimes seems as though I am on a never ending quest for the perfect concealed carry OWB holster for my large frame Smith & Wesson M&P 45.  So far the best I’ve come up with is the Fobus retention paddle holster for strong side carry.  I am however going to give the Uncle Mikes Mirage Super Slide Belt Holster a try and see if that might also be a workable option.  So what concealed carry holsters are you using on a regular basis and what are your thoughts on them?

During a post apocalyptic scenario; it’s a good idea to have a tactical vest, or load bearing vest, or chest rig, or plate carrier ready to go depending on one’s preferences and specific survival scenario.  It should be kept out of sight; but in a convenient to retrieve location, fully stocked with your fighting/defensive gear ready to roll if it is ever needed.  

A monthly review of what is on or in the vest is a good idea and it is also a good idea to put it on discreetly and walk up and down the stairs of your home with it, a bunch of times, to get yourself used to the additional weight.  It is also a good idea to make sure your mobility remains unrestricted.  For those who have a lot of accessible land; you can also get used to walking with it privately outdoors.  Better to have the vest and not need it; then to need it and not have it as the saying goes.

Last night my heavy duty steel shelving units complete with 3 months worth of food and water per person came crashing down as the legs buckled under the extreme weight.  I rebuilt a heavier duty shelving system and restocked everything which took many hours to do.  Luckily none of the food and water supplies burst upon impact with the concrete floor. I share this with my readers so you can learn from my experience. Make sure your shelves, no matter how heavy duty you think they are, really can support all the weight you are looking for them to support.

EDC Everyday Carry is essentially a prepared persons way of keeping essential items with them every time they go out.  Generally speaking you can use a small pouch and place it in a jacket pocket or a cargo pants pocket.  The pouch I use is the Condor EDC pouch which is small enough to take on the go; and holds essentials I might need such as a flashlight, spare batteries, bandaids, lens wipes, P51 can openers, lighters, mini screwdrivers, etc. etc.  I keep this with me in conjunction with my cell phone, pocket knife, keys, etc.  So if you haven’t set up a small, portable, every day carry pouch it is certainly a good idea to go ahead and do so.
