Self Defense Chest RIG And Components, Layout And Wear




What do you think about this video?

CHOPPERGIRL AIRWAR: Good Lord. Wouldn't it be easier just to buy an airplane and in a SHTF situation, just leave and fly to some remote island or other part of the world?

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.

john doe: i hope when you are in a training session you are removing those rings on your fingers. seen some bad things in my army days ... respect ;)

Rapace gentir: conceal your weapon because when shift will begin...i and a lot of armed people will looking for your toys...

Ali Abdalla: Sounds like you should buy some water resistant paint and coat the inside of your vest ;) it's a nice little tip. 

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.

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. 

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 been said. shining a bright light onto your camo is moronic.

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 reality.

Tom Fori: I'm getting a Condor Triple Stacker and I'm thinking of placing it directly over my stomach and a Condor Double Pistol Pouch to its left. Is that a good setup?

larsoveful: man in the us there are many men that come home from the military and never grow up.

Spartan M: +MAINEPREPPER Im surprised your even allowed to own an airsoft gun in Maine, just move to Texas bro!

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 ahold of.

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.

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.

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.

GEN2-X: I pity the poor person standing on your left if your pistol ever accidentally goes off.

BX0207: You remind of of the guy in the series Rescue Me who was always chasing Mike Probi after he saved his life. The guy who wouldn't give up on befriending Mikey. Man I cant believe how much you talk act and look like him.. Cook gear btw,

ACobra289: MP, What are your thoughts about having too much on the front preventing you from being able to get prone?

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 kidding). 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! 

Alan Lawyer: Never forget those tactical shorts. lol Nice video.

Fred Farmer: my friend ... um ... have you been down to the VA lately? I know they've been giving us some horrible health care lately (Congress voting more bennies for them and less for everyone else), but they do still have PTSD treatment. WHAT ARE YOU ON PATROL FOR?? You say MAINE has some horrible street gangs wandering the woods now?? Dude... dude... dude. 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.) Man is a Social animal. When we don't mature our minds and outlook on life, we get stuck in fantasy. (Carl Jung) We then make lousy fathers and gripe about losing half our stuff to divorce court. (Hello! Who created the problem??) Everything is food. The world is your mirror. What ever you hate in others-- you hate in yourself. Whatever you fear- you attract. Maine ... "Savages".. young man, you have some inner work to do.

john67elco: Where do you put the humvee keys at :)

Michael Langley: Which branch did you receive your training from please

Oscar Centeno: I remember IMT'ing with the old school LCE's and (many times) landing on my M9 and bruising my ribs. That was in the early 90's. I never got the benefit of wearing a chest rig and sweating to death. Body armor is as far as I got.

Glen Bowers: Hi Folks, I would like to say, that personally, I've been shooting, 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 my life to you.

zeroesenz: Love the bulge

Paul Burkett: MP, How does this RIG work with an ILBE when you are on the move? Would you wear this if you had to bug out with an ILBE? 

commiebombs: Where did you get your K-Bar sheath?

colonelclump2000: Are you Army or USMC? I notice you have gear from both branches

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.

Ranger Roe: Great video, thank you for taking the time to share some of your knowledge. After I watched this I clicked "subscribe" lol 

MIke Friday: Zzzzzz bac at ya!

Justin Drennan: You sir have great vid this info will help once in the army after high school I plan to be a 68 whiskey or combat medic I'd replace a pouch or two with medical gear but great vid and Ka bar great knife

King Koopa: your still a beast old man XD... knock em dead

kilrassclown: lol, my rig is almost identical. i use the condor too (cheap and good) stuffed with kevlar (can't afford plates) and the 556/9m kangaroo puches up front, drop bag on the right, radio bag, etc, etc. the set up is totally logical and it's just funny that we run our exactly the same. I also found that a standard triple pistol mag pouch is great for 1) tac light 2) pepper spray and 3) a monocular or something else and you can get those triple puches ofr around $5

William Becerra: Thanks for taking time to share your experience with the gear. Its valuable in site to see how this stuff works in real world applications. I can't believe the assholes commenting here. 

Jimmy Cute: assault shorts are standard issue too 

CPM: too heavy and bulky it appears...maybe that's why he decided to wear running shorts (to save weight)

Waylon Quiggle: Must have tactical short shorts

SergeantZaf03: I have that exact same chest rig in OD green and it's great with my AK configuration

ThaKarver420: Living in Maine myself I'm glad to see someone do videos like this. I've watched alot of your videos and they are extremely helpful. Thanks man!

Robert Speer: @MAINEPREPPER Your magazines seem to be facing the wrong way to me. At least how I was taught to reload. Could you explain your thinking?

Bobby G: not to question your ability/tactics, but is this set up difficult to fire from the prone?your right side looks a bit bulky

ron Chase: what happen to your finger Ouch,

jabara83: I came for the lbe stuff, I stayed for the shorty shorts lol

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. 

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 sling dude...

pcau: Well done and well thought Sir. Thank you
