Default Bug Out Time - weapon choice

It's bug out time, you have 15min to grab your crap and go, you get 2 weapons and a blade that you currently have in your possession and can only carry limited ammo. What you bringing with you?

GO!!


Update

lets say your leaving a populated area, going to a rendezvous point 250 miles away, on foot, alone. Grid went down over 2 weeks ago, SHTF already and the locals are going crazy, gas stations are empty, you were unprepared and food and supplies are running low, but the remote cabin in the woods close to where the wife and kids were staying with grandma is stocked.

theres prob a million way to critique the scenario but just go with it, you gotta go, now, on foot with what you can carry.

The 5.7 in my holster, the 12 ga. behind me in the rack and the folder in my pocket. Can I grab a couple extra ammo bags too? Im on my way home riding the ferry and dont see any threats yet but there are a couple of seagulls giving me the eye

If I am going to an urban/suburban area, an AR and a semi-auto pistol. If I'm going to the woods, an AR in .308 and a .22 rifle.

Tough choice for me but I’m going with Glock 19x, suppressed 10.5 SBR in 556, and tactical tomahawk. 1 mag in each plus 2 mags for the Glock and 6 mags for the AR

I’d prefer the 7.5 300blk but ammo would be too hard to scrounge up.

Compound bow, machete, brass knuckles. Ammo won't last long.

I’m thinking a bull pup but haven’t shot one yet. It’s on my short list to purchase.

As love as I love my 1911 I carry due to limited ammo capacity I do not consider it a SHTF gun so I would grab my G19. As for rifle, I would grab my AR

My wife can have the 1911 and Shotgun but maybe the M1

My CZ-75B .40 cal pistol, my Hi-Point .40 cal carbine. Both weapons have NEVER had a FTF/FTE, and both shoot the same round. My Leatherman Surge would be my blade.

Bugnut isn't bugging out. weapons, ammo, food and shelter. No, I'll make my stand at my home. If it doesn't work out............oh well. I might not want to live thru it anyway.

I'll take the AR-15 & 22 rifle and a tactical tomahawk. My backpack will easily carry 1000 rounds of 22 ammo, and 25 mags loaded with 5.56
Can I take my wife? She can carry the semi-auto handguns in her backpack with 300 rounds of ammo

I live far enough out in the country that I wouldn't have to bug out. And yes, plenty of ammo, food and water for at least 90 days.

Ruger 10/22 rifle over my shoulder because a brick doesn't take up much space and a 1911 as a sidearm. Knife is my little spyderco because it's convenient.
