Byron M: you a RANGER? your rig reminds me of a RANGER/AIRBORNE.
Kris K.: MP...Thanks! I heard a couple of SF guys talking about "the new guy didn't
tape his sh*t down"...(the following is the Disney version)... and was
making all sorts of noise. What does that mean? How is it done/fixed?
Cheesus Sliced: I have a couple of layout suggestions for you. Put the radio on the top of
the right shoulder (you can keep your mainhand on a firearm and reach to
operate with the left), put the knife on the left shoulder with the blade
pointing up (allows ease of access in any position and frees space for
another pouch or horizontal handgun magazine) and lastly, tip the handguns
barrel upwards slightly (it is easier and more natural to draw).
Punk Survivor.: 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
Brian Ruechel: 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.
Wesley Swanson: Plus blue guns cost!!! I use air soft as well in training classes
GiantDevilDog: I know it is all personal preference...but youre preaching practicality and
you have your side arm in the center of your chest. When you need it you
will end up slinging or dropping your carbine and your natural place of
your hands when that happens will be facing down or closer to their waist.
How you have it you will have to bring your firing hand back up to your
chest having wasted movement. I would go with a drop holset or lower over
your abdomin (cant spell) possibly at an upward angle where you feel your
hands will naturally be when you sling or drop your main weapon. Just a
thought for those who try to copy you...like I said all personal
preference, overall a nice rig though and hope it works well for you when
you need it.
Jacob Gaidemak: Really sick video! I wish you could build one for me. How much money do you
have invested in that rig, minus knife and mags. Lastly, I live in NYS and
we have the safe act. Could you set one up to hold shotgun molle pouches
and maintain similar look and function. Thanks.
Wilfredo Dizon: Thanks for posting this,this gives me some ideas for my future chest rig!
William Harkness: Where did you get your IFAK's and CLS'? or did you make em up yourself.
DJAStuart7: great arms
Matt DelRossi: I have a vism (ncstar) vest, i cant wear it with a back pack, is this
something you would were after dropping your bag? just for patrol after
making camp? I only got it because it had everything i was going to buy
(handgun holster mag pouches for rifle and hand gun, but was 20$
ALLINKEDUP: Amazing how many people have nothing better to do than make dumb and
derogatory comments. Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge.
Drake Anglin: your CHEST rig isn't covering your CHEST i.e. heart and lounges. the things
that it should be covering, not your stomach.
Viktor Tupolev: Is blackhawk pistol holster only held on by clips? Is secure?
David Joeaverage: I think it's hilarious that that would be considered a "self defense" chest
rig (in the title). later he calls it a "tactical chest rig" i think that
is a more accurate description. lots of patriots tend to hide behind the
word "defense" or "defensive" or whatever. say what it is, people "This is
my combat load out in case i need to fight for my liberty" i think that
would work fine. sometimes being the good guy means being the aggressor.
Kyle Simon: bro' your rig is waaay to low. You wanna keep all your s*** up off your
hips so you can squat, sprint, and jump. and the whole carry thing...buy a
Big J: Coming from someone who has never been in a combat situation, I would like
to ask your professional opinion. I would like to be prepared for a SHTF
scenario. What would be the minimal load out for a Scouting/Firefight type
situation. I would assume it would be Ammo, rifle cleaning kit, IFAK,
hydration bladder or canteen, flashlight, knife. Am I missing anything
from that list, have it completely wrong? Looking for suggestions. I just
bought a Condor MCR6 chest rig and want to set it up right. Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Lynn Baker: In one of your vids. you had stated to have a AR -15 type of weapon for
self defense. I cannot afford a $1500 + gun. What would you say about a Hi
- Point .45 rifle?
bolawdean: Nice freakin shorts nerd
Punishment: I'de Invest in a gas blow back airsoft guns. They are alot better than the
airsoft guns your using now.
Nick Dee: Dumb question. But would you recommend olive drab for a suburb environment
or desert. I like the look of desert a lot more. But I feel like the drab
is a better "camo" for the area in a shtf situation.
Mike Boyd: From what I see in your video, I like that rig. My IOTB feels restrictive
of some movement with the side plates in especially.
Robert Goempel: Where do you carry binoculars?
savage308win: Good stuff. Thanks for the vid and sharing your experience.
J Hughes: I have a black molle tactical vest. It holds 7 AR magazines and 3 pistol
magazines. It can be attached to a black duty belt with an inner duty belt
to help keep it together. The vest is also not a plate carrier although I
could wear concealable or regular body armor under it. I also have a drop
down leg holster. I trust that you would recommend I spend time wearing the
gear to make sure that it is comfortable and functional?
chad lindquist: why would you take away magazine space? and take away possible other space?
you put your knife in your magazine pouch? and you put your pistol on your
chest instead of a drop leg holster? this guy literally isnt thinking about
how to maximize all the resources he has at his disposal and is wasting
space he could possibly use for more items and etc
Jordan Roberts: Plates in that vest make a difference too.
dontknow2786: 6.9 pounds? I lift 50's all day. wtf dude.
Benny Harriston: sir......why is the flag backwards......i cant understand that......
hotboy cook: great rig i love how all of these combat couch fighters tell you what you
should change lol
suckamcc: Hi, first and foremost would like to thank you for your service and time in
making these videos. Secondly I wanted to make one comment or request
rather, perhaps you could make a video explaining which way your magazines
are facing and why.
I noticed you had your pistol mags' "toes" pointing away from your center.
I was trained when reloading from a belt pouch to keep the toes pointed to
one's belt buckle for a simpler draw and load into one's magazine well.
Maybe that's a personal preference of yours and that's the way you trained
but it just seemed awkward with too much hand/finger manipulation ie fine
Again thank you for your time in reading this and your videos are super
interesting, definitely informative and will be soon be making a sling ala
eve2130: @ MAINEPREPPER.
1) I love your videos and general outlook on things. Thank you for that.
2) A lot of the comments posted here are preference related, as many have
pointed out. One thing that isn't - if you're wearing plates in your rig,
you should hike it up to right under your collar bone. One, it protects
your vital organs in your chest cavity and two, raises the carrier above
your belly button which provides more mobility. You can survive a gut
shot better than a chest shot. (yours doesn't look like it accepts plates,
but even if it did I don't know whether you intend you use any - personal
I'm not trying to sharp shoot you or anything. Like I said, I love your
vids and the fact that you take the time to make them. If you're not
wearing plates, then comment #2 doesn't mean much.
Ellejon Hernandez: Where did get your tactical vest
Nathan McCarthy: Why not just use a Magpul AFG instead of a VFG.
Daniel Jones: YOU SHOULDN'T DRY FIRE AIRSOFT GUNS!!!!
robertsnine: Who wears short shorts. You wear short shorts. j/k man. Thanks for the
Wesley Swanson: Gear set up is not my choice but tactics seem sound.
matt Doe: Do not follow his load out!!!
Matthew Taylor: Hey Sergeant (I'm assuming), check out the KWA LM4. I think you'll be
impressed. I'm in the Corps and use this to train with. Functioning bolt
catch, realistic breakdown (even has a bolt assembly etc etc). Have you
checked out the new FILBE packs we've been using for just over a year now?
It has a separate compartment for the sleep system, and an improved belt.
Tolik L.: My load out gear is german flecktarn , unfortunately/fortunately (
unfortunately , you have to order most of it from Germany / fortunately its
of superior quality in manufacture ) my chest rig is the old style , with
three mag pouches in front , and one larger pouch on either side , I use
all but one for ammo , the last one is for IFAK . didnt get a chest rig for
a long , long time , ( stuck in my ways ) but now that I have tried it ,
love it , makes life a lot easier . Thank you for your video .
Tobias S: I havnt looked through all your videos and you probably already know this
but instead of paper you could use ice scrapers in a dark shade with a
coarse surface to write on. (we use matte purple)
Take 3 of them, make holes in the upper corner and thread thread them on a
key ring. You now have a reusable "paper" that will work in any weather and
last you forever.
Pathfinder Woodsman: The carbine is the double eagle m83.
Craig Phelps: best part is that he is doing this in underwear
Okashya Datenshi: what plate carrier is that?
Cj Berg: Very infornative. Thanks for another great vid.
cityvice123: I would like to do this layout can you please msg me thanks
Hoy C Phillips: Spot on nice video
bigrebnc1861: thanks for the info
