Simple you have to bug out can't drive so you can only carry so much weight. What rifle and pistol would you grab?

For me this is simple and I would hands down cheat the system. My bug out bag is packed and ready to go at all times. I would absolutely stay put at home if at all possible but if forced to leave on foot I will have three guns with me.

- First and foremost my side charge AR along with as many loaded mags as possible on a duty belt.
- Second I would have two pistols. One on a thigh rig and one on my chest rig. The reason for this is then I can always give one to another person if need be or if one falters or malfunctions I have a back up. Not looking for a debate here but both would be in 9mm

What would you take with you?

G19 + 3 Mags & AR w/ 6 Mags. It's all I can fit on my Vest & belt System. Are you putting all of this in a bag of some sorts? Back Pack?
