Self Defense Chest RIG And Components, Layout And Wear




What do you think about this video?

Byron M: you a RANGER? your rig reminds me of a RANGER/AIRBORNE.

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.

Gabriel S.: gay

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? 

jesse hanowell: That rig is like a foot too low. 

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

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 ahold of.

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.

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.

Waylon Quiggle: Must have tactical short shorts

bolawdean: Nice freakin shorts nerd

Jason Alderman: Operator as freak. I'm pee'd a little. This video... whoa. Chest mounted pistols are only good for VIC movements. Transitioning from primary to secondary effectively with a chest mount is damn near impossible. That's why no one does it. Can't shoot yourself in the chest with it on your hip. What's the practical application for this video? Magazine placement doesn't look functional but everyone's different. Functionality of gear is imperative. Choose your attire a little more carefully. If this is a bug-out type gear load out, you'll be the first one shot by making yourself a target by wearing all that crap. Conceal everything, where slick body armor.

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.

heavyhitta52: Sweet shorts

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.

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.

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.

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

Snailthatflies: outstanding that you have the money to buy this crap,. but you are wearing your vest wrong , for someone who claims to have gone on patrols, let alone been military , another indicator that you are not military is you said primary objective is to put steel on target when in fact bullets are brass casing and lead round

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.

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

inmarsatphone: Why the little gay shorts? 

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

SergeantZaf03: Where do u get the custom Velcro patches with your name on then?

ron Chase: what happen to your finger Ouch,

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,

Arnold Espadas: ..read some comments of the haters haha ...but great teaching video..thanks for the idea's. .

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

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? 

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...

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

Luis Gabriel Negron: man i love ur videos im 13 and love guns and ur videos are great u know so much not like some people who think that they know a lot but your experience in war makes u a LOT more credible

grayson campbell: i didn't see a back panel plate this must be a light weight vest.

David inColorado: Where did you get the KBar Sheath???

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!

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. 

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

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.

T0K3N SM0K3: damn, dude is ripped!!

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

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. 

pcau: Well done and well thought Sir. Thank you 

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

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. 

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! 

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?

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?

AtlantaMusicDJ.com: I am loving your channel thank you for the knowledge on the gear 

Charles Van Laarhoven: Thank you for the great video. Many good ideas and will use your suggestions when I build my rig. 

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.

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
