Have a chest rig ready to go at a moments notice.
We live in strange times. The normalcy bias tells us that nothing bad has happened before, so nothing bad will happen in the future. Probably not the safest way to live.
We’ve seen rioting and all sorts of chaos when the weather turns bad, during social unrest and the like. What happens when the gunfight outside your door lasts for more than one magazine?
So what should you carry? Magazines (more=better) for your primary and secondary weapons, a trauma kit with tourniquet and some survival and navigation essentials should you have to temporarily relocate. Here’s a basic chest rig that won’t break the bank.
Some may find this notion a little overkill. Maybe, but chance favors the prepared!
