Have you actually figured out how to configure all of your gear in the event of an on foot bug out? Obviously, this is a worst case scenario for all of us, and nobody intends to foot it anywhere, but worst case can happen. I just loaded on all of my gear, and have discovered that I have a lot of straps and belts that I am going to have to work out a good set up for to ensure easy access to my weapons. My intention is to have my bug out bag on, my AR on a 1 point sling across my chest, my belt knife on the left tied to my leg, and my Glock 21 on my right. The waist straps on my BOB restrict access to my Glock, and the chest straps restrict the movement of my AR. Got some work to do to figure it all out, and thought I would post as a caution to all to figure it out now, rather than later. Also, I am quite sure that I looked like an idiot Rambo type, but if it becomes necessary, won't really care about that!

This is something I am struggling with at the moment. My holster with the Beretta will not work with the pack I got so I have been thinking about a drop down holster but that just seem a little over the top and just have not convinced myself of that yet. My biggest thing right now is trying to make the BoB lighter. My big issue is I have to be prepared with a 4 season bag. Winter is just a $*%^ for trying to make a bag light without dropping some serious money.

I was going to say that I don't want to advertise what I have with a lot is tactical stuff, but I guess that would be ridiculous considering I plan on having an AR, a full size 45, and a big knife in plain view. Thanks for the suggestions.

If we get to where we have to worry about advertising your gear post SHTF, your not doing it right by letting someone see you first ;)

I would recommend the drop leg holster also. I think if you get to the point of bugging out the visible holster on your side is going to draw the least attention. The pack on your back will likely make you a target of opportunity so you might as well let them see the Glock so they know to pick a softer target. You would hope the rifle would be enough of a deterrent. I would throw a more concealable holster in the pack though if you've got the room for it. Never know when you might want it to look like you're unarmed.
