If I'm bugging out, I will probably be carrying AR-15 7.62 by 39. But I will also take along for the ride my single six 22 handgun complete with 2 or three hundred rounds of Long Rifle hollow point and one small box of CCI shot loads.
Location: 3 miles NW of Brownells retail store and they keep me broke!
I'd have to go with a 4 inch 686.....if I was to bug out! Bad knees and bad hips, I'll probably just dig in and go down with the ship if that's what it comes to. Besides bug out to where? Iowa is already the middle of nowhere!
