POTD: Marco’s “Get Home Bag”

    Midwest Marco shares with us his “Get Home Bag”, the opposite of a Bug Out Bag which is all about what you need to get away from home as fast as possible. He writes …

    I call it my “Get Home” bag and carry it in the back of my truck. It’s hopefully enough to get me home if the truck can’t. The centerpiece is my new H&K VP9. List of materials:

    UTG Multi-Functional Tactical Messenger Bag
    H&K VP9 with TruGlo Tritium Night Sights
    Total of threee H&K Mags
    Bagmaster clip-on holster
    Extra ammo hollow point & FMJ
    H&K Benchmade folding knife
    Gerber 01471 Suspension Multi-Plier
    Streamlight 88851 Poly tac LED Flashlight
    Aquamira – H20 Capsule Miraguard Antimicrobial Water Bottle and Filter
    Small roll black duct tape
    Leather work gloves

    Not shown
    50 ft black paracord
    Extra led flashlight & batteries
    Baseball cap
    Sharpie, notepad
    Red Cross First Aid Kit

    A truck bag has been on my ever increasing todo list.

    It is not quite “get home”, but if you are putting together a generic truck bag, I recommend a couple of pairs of cheap shooting glasses and a pack of disposable foam ear protection. They cost only a few bucks but might save a friend from hearing loss next time you go out shooting or hunting (or when helping a buddy with DIY work involving powertools).
