sweetdixieguitar: Good video. You seem quite knowledgeable, but with everything stacked up in
the front like it is it seems very uncomfortable or unnatural if you are
forced to lie down prone, where many times we will be forced to take that
position in a firefight. Personally I would prefer a good heavy duty belt
with most of my gear on my sides, with my plate carrier being the only
thing on the very front. I'm only sharing the way I think. Thanks again for
the great videos.
Mike Wright: you guys are freaking this all up, you are drawing way too much attention to
yourselves and everyone that might be considered to be similar to you.
you are going to find yourselves on "the list" and be that list real or a
paranoid fallacy, in the long run, you would all be better off to do as you
do but do it quietly.
more than half of what is on here, does not need to be said, it has already

iSNEEZEgorillaSPiT: I'm a soldier in the Army, I'm tired of using our GI FLC (Tactical Vest). I
was wondering if any of these well made Airsoft Chest Rigs would be good
enough or durable enough to go through what the military puts us grunts
though? Any insight ?
djay6651: Back when the US Army still used ALICE gear, I would put the magazine
inside my pistol belt and let the belt hold the weight of the weapon, which
was an M16A2 when on patrol during my first deployment.
MyBeardItches: If we're talking WROL here, magazines are one of the LEAST expendable
pieces of equipment you can have. You won't be able to just go to the store
or order them off the internet anymore. Plus, bartering for more would cost
you a fortune in other supplies. Never EVER just ditch your magazine. Your
life depends on it.
Jimmy Henderson: I started with a bb gun and now I'm up to a 22. LR
ACobra289: MP, What are your thoughts about having too much on the front preventing
you from being able to get prone?
rogerwilco99: MP, I know this is an old post and I watched it when you first posted it.
But I have been studying gear deployment, reading articles and watching
videos. It seems to me that many of our folks on the sharp end organize
their gear into a plate carrier and a chest rig like the chest rig you
have. Is that how you would wear your gear if you were using rifle armor
plates, too, in a plate carrier and separate chest rig so you can take off
your chest rig with most of your gear but still have the protection of your
body armor? Or do you advocate making it all one unit with the plate
carrier also having all your gear attached to it? Would you keep your comm
gear (hhr) on your chest rig or on your plate carrier if you did that? (I'd
want my radio handy all the time if I were in a dangerous area). If you
think this might be worth a discussion/video then please feel free.
Shawn Strauss: Shouldn't top of the plate carrier be just below or at the sternal notch?
Yours looks to riding a bit low.
Charles Thompson: Nice setup. I chose the same rig a few years ago. I still need to try
a chest holster though. It looks to be much more comfortable than a leg
campsite a: @9:52"but I will tell my soldiers to carry less pistol mags and more rifle
mags" -- you aren't commanding crap if you have to say something like that
to a professional soldier. You're so full of crap it isn't even funny.
Replace the word "soldier" with "subscriber" and we come a little closer to
@9:15 is this a trick to make people think you're a real soldier or just a
plain stupid comment "magazines are replacable" -- not in the context you
speak of you nut.
Hey you know what's a good idea in WROL? Let's all dress up like law
enforcement!! LOL!!! (of course this calls into validity the whole idead of
WROL as a whole... it's as unlikely as win the lottery 4 times in a row).
Jason Williams: Someone should help you adjust your vest... It should be much tighter on
Jase Wiarda: Great video +MAINEPREPPER ! What brand is your rig and how much did it cost
StantheGunman: What kind of sheath are you using for the Ka-bar?
Andrew Hamilton: Tactical daisy dukes
SVtgr8: Nice setup MP. Out of curiosity, did you wear a "toothpick" or
boot/fighting knife when downrange to compliment your K-bar? I find them a
pain when doing any form of long distance walking/hiking/patrol (similar to
the drop-leg or anything else on my legs for that matter) so wear I wear it
higher up in some situations. Never had to use it during combat but like
the idea of having two blades when needed. Most have one blade only so you
have a significant advantage having two. Your view would be appreciated.
Thanks for the great informative videos. You are making a difference to a
lot of people's lives.
Waylon Quiggle: Must have tactical short shorts
Josh Spurgeon: what kind of rig is that?

derogatory comments. Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge.
Ali Abdalla: Sounds like you should buy some water resistant paint and coat the inside
of your vest ;) it's a nice little tip.

Dario Whitmoyer: Might I suggest Tapping, or attaching in another fashion, two magazines
together. So that when you empty one, you just take it out and flip it,
this will also allow you to carry more magazines, and give you more to grab

Rarez2: your rig is nowhere neaer combat effective. it is all over the place and
too cluttered. there is no such thing as "riding the sight"... Marines in a
combat situation carry their rifle in the ready position, if you knew
anything you would know this. guys, don't listen to this guy.
Osheas Torch: I haven't seen this vid in a year or so. Just watched it again... I have a
condor mcs and in it I have 7 rifle mags as well. I only carry 3 spare
pistol mags because I received a 3 pistol mag pouch as a gift and an empty
spot in the pouch would feel like an empty spot in my soul. Love your
videos, haven't been on your page for a year or so, but am back... and am
happy to be back. Thanks for your service and have a blessed day.
Nathan Twist: But cool thought
WolfpackAlpha1988: I really like that setup. Not too sure about the gun on the chestrig, but
then again, I have no experience whatsoever (does DayZ count?..just
Why did you choose this position for your pistol and not a side holster?
Usually when I talk to people here about this, everyone says the pistol
does not belong on your chest. So, yeah, I'm pretty confused. Sorry if this
is a dumb question, I just want to learn as much as possible. :)
One of the reasons I ask is this: I currently have a glock 17, and I'm
thinking about getting a 19 instead (need to shoot a 19 first to feel the
difference, but it fits my hand nicely and the 17 doesn't really. The frame
is a little bit too long, and I had to remove the finger grooves to shoot
if without getting a cramp). One thing that speaks for the 19 is also that
it is smaller, so carrying it on the chest would be easier. I like that
style very much, for me it seems to be the position that you access without
any problems, while with a sideholster something would be in the way
(again, no real experience, just my thoughts).
I would appreciate if someone could enlighten me. Thanks a lot in advance!

Our thoughts become our life.
Our imagination creates our life.
It's one thing to be prepared for home defense... but going out on patrol??
All this paranoia ... which sells tons of equipment we'll never use, has
become delusional. The Zombies are in the mirror.
Some of your guys are listening to TOO MUCH Hate Radio and Rush Limbaugh.
At what point do you sense it's distraction from getting on with your life?
All this negativity creates paranoia and makes the PTSD worse. Untreated
trauma turns into Personality Disorders ... like Narcissistic Personality
Disorder (... which on some days it feels like the country is suffering
epidemic levels of....), Mood Disorders, and a host of other problems.
Currently, Americans take 80% of the world's pain killers, psych meds, and
illegal drugs. WHAT THE HELL ARE WE MEDICATING??? ((LOL))
Substance addictions are bad enough... but it's said that Behavioral
Addictions are even worse! (Gambling has to be the most self-destructive
addiction there is.)

probably longer than you have been alive. Trained many people. My best
students were always women. No bad habits to over come. Been in the
Survivor, Preppier movement longer than I care to admit. Between Lynn
Thompson of Cold Steel and the Main Prepper, I have been lead into avenues
that I never considered, such as a Tactical Vest. Thank's guy's. I may owe
