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
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).
Marc Urban: I have some sweet airsoft myself! And yes they are great training tools!
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?
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.
hotboy cook: great rig i love how all of these combat couch fighters tell you what you
should change lol
brett schmiege: Who wears short shorts! Maineprepper wears short shorts!!
Michael Douglass: you just want us all to look at your pickle thats why the camera is aimed
down at your sexy booty shorts
Wilfredo Dizon: Thanks for posting this,this gives me some ideas for my future chest rig!
GinSkimPivot: ROFL! What a complete freaking Muppet.
And at weekends, we play Man From UNCLE, right?
William Harkness: Where did you get your IFAK's and CLS'? or did you make em up yourself.
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.
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 .
DJAStuart7: great arms
Punishment: I'de Invest in a gas blow back airsoft guns. They are alot better than the
airsoft guns your using now.
Pathfinder Woodsman: The carbine is the double eagle m83.
Jordan Roberts: Plates in that vest make a difference too.
dontknow2786: 6.9 pounds? I lift 50's all day. wtf dude.
Benny Harriston: thank you both. now i understand
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?
Craig Phelps: best part is that he is doing this in underwear
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
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.
Okashya Datenshi: what plate carrier is that?
Cj Berg: Very infornative. Thanks for another great vid.
Aniquin: Only real men can look tough in booty shorts.
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.
Viktor Tupolev: Is blackhawk pistol holster only held on by clips? Is secure?
bigrebnc1861: thanks for the info
shankdrummer06: Whose AR weighs 6.9lbs?? haha wish mine did.
Mr.Shootinggun: where could i get army stuff for cheap?
The1337Soap: what is your tac vest?
Ted Dibiase: No selves bro .
TOExTAGGER: I really like your setup, what was the total on this .....
Alexis Arnold: very good Captain excellent form!!!
Robert Goempel: Thanks
savage308win: Good stuff. Thanks for the vid and sharing your experience.
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.
Tanner Crow: Parallax
Philip Hoard: I have recently started watching your videos. Great job and very
informative. Quick question... I saw your video on the ILBE pack. Can you
wear that pack loaded with this chest rig? I'm speaking in a "crap hits the
Nathan McCarthy: Why not just use a Magpul AFG instead of a VFG.
Ellejon Hernandez: Where did get your tactical vest
Daniel Jones: YOU SHOULDN'T DRY FIRE AIRSOFT GUNS!!!!
woodj6220: Does anyone else feel safer knowing this guy is out there defending this
country? I do!
TacticalHardlinePro: What is with those shorts???
sam mitchell: Hi Maineprepper. Good and informative video. Do you happen to have any
videos that focus on maintaining situational awareness? I feel this would
be a good topic for a video and is often overlooked in favour of equipment
centric instructional films.
