What else would you suggest for a emergency SHTF bag?
I have a backpack and in it I have:
-Water purification filter and iodine tablets
-first aid kit (minor injury)
-Trauma kit (life threatening injury)
-Benadryl, ibuprofen, and other meds
-topographical/laminated maps of my area
-small roll of toilet paper
-two person compact tent (weighs 3.5 pounds)
-40 oz stainless steel canteen with cup to boil water
-emergency blanket (space blanket)
-collapsible water bag
-military grade Para cord
-SOG seal tem survival knife
-hatchet for firewood
-storm proof matches and magnesium striking rod (with cotton balls for tinder)
-emergency food bars 5 X 300 calories each
-GLOCK .45 ACP with 100 rounds
am I missing anything that would make this a better 3-day bag?? also I'm trying to keep the load under 50 pounds in case I have to run. I intend to use this bag as means to keep 1-2 people alive for 3-5 days to get us from point A to point B. It is not a bag I plan on living in the woods off of.

I find your list to be wanting and overly loaded with unessesary items compare your list to a Backpackers list as you won't be driveing anywhere in a SHTF scenario,
Also it makes no sense to have a BOB unless you have a BOB destination and if you do it makes better sense to equip that place with the heavy gear so that you can carry the light essentials.
