>>46017186Good on you
>>46017186Evens - all the extra gucci shit in the next decade herniated a disk in your neckOdds - miniaturization leads to less weight even with more tech
Question for yall. I've been messing around in my new plate carrier and I've noticed that the rear plate tends to constantly rub against my right shoulder blade. Is this normal and I'm just a puss or do I need to readjust something?
>>46017611What do you mean, how so?
>>46016895>Fiskars X7Thought about it. Don't trust the plastic handle, to be honest. So the focus has been on ease of repair or sheer indestructibility.Supplementary question. Which do you think has the most utility? Hammer poll or spike poll?
>>46018104Hammer definitely has more utility.
>>46018104Well if you don't have a shovel the spike can be used as a pick in a pinch which can be handy for digging things like a firepit
>>46017429>tfw already have 5 fucked up discs from carrying too much shit innamilWin/win either way. Evens and I end up with more metal in my skelly than Wolverine, odds and fewer people end up like me.>>46017611Check to make sure your cummerbund is even side to side. If it is, see a doctor cuz something's fucky with your bones.
Defense mechanisms© mission essential© plate carrier update:>no updateThat is all.
The camelbak I ordered from germany has been stuck in usps limbo for a full week
>>46018543>>46018548no one cares
>>46018548No one gives a shit, faggot. We don't want updates on your deliveries. This is not your personal blog.This does not apply to >>46018543
I need to find a Safariland 6354DO in black now. Really dig the FCPC v5.
>>46018567>>46018543Defense mechanisms is a scam company you cant find evidence of a single person with a defense mechanisms pc
>>46018671Have RDRGEAR wrap that one on grey
>>46018673>Couldn't find anything on Google image results from a small company that recently started up.They openly list their contact info if you'd like to grill them yourself.
>>46018671Haven't seen you in a while.Fucking love your setup. Im thinking of emulating it--only with a stribog because i don't have gucci money.
>>46018685Oh shit, I'll do that. Thanks dude.>>46018717Yeah been busy AF. Stribog is good, I'm told. Go for it.
>>46018767Wish there was a glock variant though. Love way it's angled, imagine its a lot less spread out, easier to stash.If you ever want to sell yours, ill be there.
>>46018717diggin that wire stock on the bog
>>46018673You're making me really nervous.Fuck, what if you're right?
>>46018797Yeah I just bought the Glock version because I have a ton of Glock mags already. But the aesthetic grew on me a ton. Probably won't be parting with it any time soon.
>>46018104You're going to have to do some work on any cold steel hawk you buy. The mounting is complete fucking garbage.Do yourself a favor and spend a few extra bucks on an HB Forge hawk if you want a classic design: http://www.hbforge.com/index.php?p=home
>>46017627Well, it seems when I pull the plates tight to my body the tip of my shoulder blade rubs against the side of the rear plate in my carrier when I move my arms. I'm a thin person so this might be the cause of my problem. :(
>>46018797Holy shit that's nice
>>46019111Did you ejaculate?
>>46018104I've been thinking about getting pic related. A little pricey at about $60-70. SOG make decent hatchets?>ferrocerium firestarter rod in the handle, nail puller, hammer head, and 3 inch black oxide blade is made of corrosion resistant 2CR. OAL is about 12 inches
>>46019072Single curve or multicurve? Also, make sure that the plates are adjusted high enough.
>>46019201>SOG make decent hatchets?SOG went memecore about 15 years ago. Before that they were top flight.
>>46019201Or pic related I can pick up for $25. But it's literally just a hatchet, no other uses.>>46019227Memecore or not, they still make decent gear?
>>46019216Or flat/no curve?
>>46019139Almost. Need to see her pantsless for completio....er, research purposes.
>>46019201You get what you pay for anon.
>>46019201Counterpoint. MitUSA. Comes with a belt sheath. Basically indestructible. Heavier, but yeah.Was thinking of getting one and seeing if the notable downside of handle shock could be reduced by putting a collar of shock cord on the neck.
>>46019216Single curve 4401s
>>46019364An additional bonus: As opposed to the leather traditional Sportsman's Axe model from Estwing, the Camper's Axe is flat under the head. So you can choke up on it better for fine tasks.
>>46017186is it gay to cuddle with your bros? YES: You are cuddling with a manNO:You are in a warzone where you may die any day. You are not allowed to have women.You are cold.
>>46018543>>46018703>>46018835Jfc...$140 for a PC that doesn't have molle webbing on it (only Velcro)? Dafuq is this shit?
>>46018104Just get an estwing. If you don't already use a hatchet all the time then you aren't likely the type of person who will ever have to worry about breaking a steel handle.
Why didnt you guys ever tell me weaving MOLLE was so much fun
>>46019310Roger that!>>46019364I'll check it out, thanks!
>>46018548I ordered a knife from the UK that took over five weeks to get to me.
>>46019446Broke bitch problems.
>>46019275>Memecore or not, they still make decent gear?The quality dropped a lot.
I got myself this, and it seems like i need a fuckhueg belt for this to work. Is that right or am I just being retarded.
>>46019460>I'll check it out, thanks!They usually have them at hardware stores like Lowe's or Home Depot. I'd recommend checking the weight before you go ahead with a purchase, even if you plan to purchase one online because you want a particular color. They are hefty, but if you deem the heft is worth the capabilities of the tool, could be worth it to you.
>>46019379Well, multicurves that are too low will cause rubbing. Single curves not so much.
>>46018717That lever over what I assume is the mag release, is that the bolt catch? If so, is it ambidextrous?

>>46019506It appears so.
>>46019493>it seems like i need a fuckhueg belt for this to workFor what to work? The liner? the belt will probably need to be a couple of inches longer than usual.
>>46019539That's a pretty cool design, I like that. I want to get into the PCC world but my first is going to be a STEN build and then I want an SA25. So it'll be a minute.
>>46019541Yeah like I have the liner, which is medium, and a large belt through it. But even then its not big enough, im at the very end of the velcro. Do i just need to get an XL belt? Or am I missing something about how this is supposed to fit
>>46019072What PC is that?
>>46019453Just hope you're doing it the right way.>>46019463Fuck off with that. Why would I want everything velcro'd that can be ripped off if snagged? Jesus, I can get a Beez for less if I want just Velcro. Can get a Veritas Lite modular that's full of molle for half.>>46019499Thought the name sounded familiar. I'd like something with a little more utility, and slightly shorter, like the SOG I posted, but I also want something that won't snap in half.
>>46019462I ordered a cock cage with urethral insert from China and it took 2 months before it arrived, after shipping the next day...what's your point?
>>46019453Yep, weaving pouches on is for semi-permanent duty. If you want to swap stuff in and out on the front of your plate carrier, using a swift clip system is choice. Unclip and unvelcro whatver panel is on there, clip on new panel and mash the velcro down. Like in this pic, I have my FCPCv5 with either a 3-mag Esstac placard or my SMG DC3RM I can swap in and out.
>>46019586See>>46019617You actually think its just Velcro?
>>46019275>no other uses.That's not even useful as a hatchet it's held together by fucking screws.
>>46019577Mayflower APC. Feels great to wear and would certainly recommend.
>>46019502I might have it too low in the carrier, I'll try that then. Thanks for your help.
>>46018548I ordered 2 things from eurofags and it took a month for both to get here.
>>46017186Mandibles are jawlet COPE, prove me wrong
>>46019737You're just jealous you can't see it or be the key holder.
>>46019639I see the molle on the upper half of >>46019617But where is it on the lower half, where it really count.
>>46019853S-shut up no I'm not!
>>46019639>You actually think its just Velcro?Er, what? What exactly do you mean.>>46019870Lower half has no MOLLE on the FCPC, you'd want a molle placard if you need that.
>>46019726Thats what I was thinking. WAY too many screws. I'd rather spend 3x that and take my chances with the SOG.
>>46019903>Lower half has no MOLLEThat's what I thought. I'm not comfortable with that. I get "muh ease of adjustability", bit it should be molle to begin with imo. Must be my OCD.
>>46019741>apc>only 3 mags in a kangaroo pouchwat
>>46019741I like that it has molle but is also swift clip compatible. Placards are all I would use but I still want the option to use molle or the kangaroo pouch.
>>46019870>molle on the upper halfWhat? I see no molle>where it really countsIts a different type of PC, it serves a different niche then traditional, full kit PCs. Do you not approve?>>46019903He stated that its all Velcro, and that it will get caught on something and rip off. It is attached by swiftclips and secured in place by the Velcro. It is not held to the carrier just by velcro as he said.
>>46019915I have SOG. I bought it at the PX when I was a young dumb private. It's decent at making tinder for firewood, and fun to toss around when you're drunk. But it isn't quality, and it can't keep an edge worth a fuck.
>>46019949Not having a MOLLE flap on the front to close over your cumberbund doesn't matter, functionally. You just get something like pic related and you have a modular flap instead of one sewn on. It's all preference though and there isn't an overall right answer on this stuff. What works for you is the right answer.
>>46019884>>46019796Holy fuck mein seids
>>46019586>I'd like something with a little more utility, and slightly shorterLansky has a product out called the Fire Fighters Battle Axe that's a more lightweight option. It's also insulated for breaching. Goes for ~$42. No idea on if it's any good, but it seems well-reviewed by the few people who seem to have it.
>>46019973>he stated that its all Velcro>>46019617is me, I never said anything related to >>46019639 so I'm not sure what he meant in regards to what I posted.
>>46020033Yeah no shit. I'm referring to what the other guy said. My formatting was very clear. Is this your first time on this website?
Why is it discords with the most LE End Users are the most racist?
>>46020102What's up with you crying about users of another site on an anonymous mongolian basket weaving forum.
>>46020005Do you not have a huge folder of sniff reactions?
>>46020016>It's also insulated for breaching.Do people rig up doors to electrocute someone trying to enter?
>>46019509>ships from ChinaDon't rely on chinkshit to save your dome
>>46020186I figured it was for breaking straight through a wall without having to worry about wiring.
>>46020062Yeah my bad dude. I'm all fucked up on painkillers. Woo back problems.
>>46020102Turns out when people have to interact with niggers all day they end up not liking niggers very much.You have your answer, now fuck off nigger.On an unrelated note: Should I consider a flapped holster for my kit if I live in an area which receives significantly more rainfall then say Iraq, or Afghanistan? Or is it just a case of "If it rains all day your pistol is going to get soaked deal with it faggot."?
>>46020005fuck off faggot
>>46020327That would make more sense. I wouldn't want to be doing that with someone armed on the other side but for a fireman that would be useful.
>>46020352>drop leg>kneepadsLooks like this guy has no idea what he's doing. If only he browsed /gq/
>>46019509No. Also, edit your links to exclude everything after the “?”>>46020352Most flapped holsters that you’re looking at nowadays are still going to be those old M9 holsters which are still fabric - which will soak. Any kydex Tumor you put ontop of a safariland or whatever is going to let water in eventually. I would invite you just to use whatever holster is most comfortable and highest quality for you and let proper maintenance be the way forward for wet season adventures.
>>46020503>>46020503Really interested in your opinion about this >>46009010
back from the range
>>46020102thats a fake
>>46020650You Post this shit all the time, but i still can't get sick of looking at it.Great style. Only thing that I'm iffy on is the elastic cummerbund. Have you notice any wear, or have you had any issues witt it?
>>46020713>wearnot really, i dont keep anything in the elastic slots, so theres nothing to wear out. It's super super comfy.
>>46018673Can anyone confirm or deny this?
>>46020738Prove god isn't real.
>>46020102>LE End Users are the most racistHow's that boot tasting these days?

>>46020805lol yeah, its coming off soon. it's a pretty cool muzzle device, though.
>>46020495He's only got 1 kneepad. Based oper8or
>>46020650Faggots with medic patches/colors are the first to go. Not gonna stop me from clappin your ass. Means your fixing the other assholes I want dead.
>>46020909You do realize that guys are wearing those patches to signify what pouch has their medical equipment or IFAK, right?You're not a poorfag and would know this, right?
>>46020744There is no God, only Zuul.
>>46020934oh God its the PC autist who still has no armor but has his little penis training bra rig
>>46020919>to signify what pouch has their medical equipmentIf they are seriously this retarded as to not know what pouch is their med loadout, they deserve a bullet. It's a fucking target. "Oh, this guy can patch himself and others up, which means more potential threat to me."
>>46020909>>46020951it's so other people working on them know where their ifak is you braindead reject
>>46020934Jesus Christ mclovin....lose some weight and get a properly sized PC.
>>46020909What brings you to our neck of the woods, stranger?I hope you enjoy your time with us, remember to lurk as much as possible to get a sense of what are reasonable posts, and which ones will make you look like a retard.Please ask any reasonable questions you may have about gear, and gear related activities.Remember, lurk more, have fun, and be safe.And if you don't understand something, definitely try your hardest to resist sounding off like an idiot.
>>46020962its not a PC, its one of these abominations
>>46020959If the crew I'm with doesn't have their own AFAK's, I deserve to die.>>46020968See above. My AFAK isnt for others to use on me. It's for me to use on me, or me to use on a friend if need be.
>>46020947I think hes doing alright. Im not a fan of small rigs like that, drop legs, or pccs, but if he's going for a particular setup, surely we could support him.
>>46020975I assumed it was a micro PC, as they do exist, just don't see them often.
>>46020987>ifakWhy are you doing this? Are you bored?
>>46020987you moron. The patch is there for guys in your crew to identify what your IFAK pouch is when the bullets are flying and the adrenaline is dumping
>>46020843That's actually better because not all of them are sniffing.
>>46020909You're not clapping shit and you don't have a crew. I would be surprised if you even have guns you little troll.
>>46021009IFAK, AFAK, MFAK...now your just trolling.>>46021014Know how I know you're an illiterate nigger?
>>46020947>>46020962I have a PC. Its part of a separate kit.
>>46021040Not that anon, but post guns with timestamp faggot
>>46021079Eat shit I'm not the one shitting up this thread talking about "clapping" people for having ifaks. Post your gear.
>>46021079>not that anonThat's obviously not true. Why do you want to come here and shit up our thread?
>>46021109Uh huh....and you're not eating jogger cock for dinner either I suppose.
Is it worth adding 3 pounds to your pack for one of these? I've never dug a foxhole. Are they still a thing?
>>46021109>Told post guns with timestamp>Replies with "Post your gear"That's not how it works newfag.
>>46021161I'd probably say yeah, never know when you might need a giant spoon. But also a small hatchet/hammer/tool combo thingy like>>46019201SOG quality seems questionable though.
>>46021188I just grabbed the first image on Google. Haven't looked into it at all, just learning about gear and what i might need. Don't Know ifi would need a latrine, or cover etc.
>>46021129>>46021165This is the last (you) you are going to get. Try trolling /arg/ you'll probably get more replies.
>>46021161Its good for building a fire pit and burying your shit.
>>46021161Trifold etools suck ass. They're heavier and you get less reach. Only benefit is using it as a poop stool but if you're somewhere with logs, logs work better. Get one with a longer wooden handle, much lighter, more of a reach
>>46021236Nofunz newfag...GTFO poser
Are these too tryhard?I bought mechanix and i hate not having sensation in my fingers. I can't access my phone, or comfortable handle buckles and straps, and i feel like i lose grip.These are kind of pricey, but kind of cool right?
>>46018018You know, he predicted all of this
>>46021287just buy pig FDT gloves
>>46021287I was not a fan of Wiley X gloves and I bought the same brand albeit with the fingertips attached. The fingertips wore out crazy fast. Just buy a cheap but good tac glove like mechanix, PIG, or similar and snip the fingers you want removed. I guarantee you'll be more satisfied by that.
>>46021245I can vouch for the Cold Steel Special Forces Shovel. Used one to process a bunch of logs. Fucked the edge up and needs to be resharpened because I used it as a hatchet instead of a machete, but it did the job. Paid $15 for it.
>>46021295Those look pretty good. Can i alter them to have 1 index finger exposed without unraveling the entire thing like >>46021328 suggested?Just one finger would make a world of difference.
>>46021375sure you can cut the finger off without issues
>>46021287Seriously, go buy a 100 pack of those nitrile gloves you get for free in any factory job. You can just burn through one pair every 2 months and throw them out. They're good enough to wear doing 2-gun or going prone etc. and you have good trigger control wearing them.I had about 200 pairs from when I had a job at a fruit-packing factory as a kid. I still have loads now which I use when I work on my property doing fencing etc.You can also get those nomex flight gloves, you can use a phone with them on.
Now I'm starting to be concerned that defence mechanisms is a scam, like that anon said.I talked to one of the heads of the company multiple times this last month. He genuinely answered all my questions and seemed super legit. But i seriously can't find any pictures of anyone owning one--the only thing i have to go on was the recommendation of some anon in this general a month ago.How fucked am I? They seriously looked like quality products, what if i never recieve anything?I'm worried.
>>46021385Based and factory glove pilled
>>46021343I think my handle is longer that one, and it was $12 at a local army surplus. I carry a folding saw for actual wood cutting.
>>46021429Save your family from the embarrassment of being related to someone who was potentially scammed and commit honorable Sudoku
>>46019446Anon, have you heard of the slickster?
>>46019446Dumb fuck, you put velcro tape on your mags and then slap them on your PC like that. Jeez it's like you've never even operated before.
>>46021824>Put Velcro on mags
>>46021073Please post that kit. I know there were a few dudes asking about concealing/obfuscating their use of plates. Couldn't remember if it was you or another poster that had a lo-pro PC setup
>>46021887I'm still waiting for components
Are there other manufacturers of holsters similar to safariland's modular designs?
anyone want to tell me how to all the old /gq/ magazine editions? a buddy showed me a couple he had saved and they were funny as fuck.
>>46022049pretty sure there's a google drive with them
>>46020729I've never heard of them and it seems like people only recently started shilling them a few threads ago. Apparently the company is only like 5 months old so who knows at this point about it or how the quality is.
>>46021038Hey nigger, I just got one of those gpsmaps, you got any tips or advice on them?
>>46021903Okay, couldn't remember if it were together yet or not. Godspeed.
>>46022151get some free topo maps, carry spares in SD cards. It's pretty fast on the sattelite and can be used to plot out stuff on your 401 if you have it.
>>46021998>>46022020Thank you. My plan is to start as minimal as possible and scale up or not, as needed and to experiment with different setups. Modular seems the way to go. Any further recommendations?
Anyone have reasons that the micro fight is gay, other than the fact that extra pistol mags are a meme? is it just how most of the retards that own them act like they know what they're doing, or is it just a bad design?
>>46020729>>46022107Fuck that....not risking my shekels on what appears to be a BS PC with next to no PALS.
has anyone use the d3crh with 5.56 inserts? is it bulky when used as a placard?

>>46021880Why do you think so much gear has velcro all over it? You're not supposed to cover it in patches like a zoomer hype beast.
>>46022260Awesome, I just bought the northeast 24k topo map sd and I have a 601.
>>46021038What's that thing next to your earpro
>>46022499Just pouches and whatnot man. I don't want my shit pulling off if it gets snagged. Now, I can get maybe some things being "tear away". But I'm not putting Velcro on my mags and having to worry about them falling off/pulling off. Some things shouldn't be that easy to pull off, ya know?
>>46022576Jesus christ lol the velcro on the mags was obviously a joke
>>46022422What ifak is that?
>>46022613beez, it's good

>>46022753Yeah I have the bfg with the tq holder, but I think I should get a bigger one which is why I was asking.
Why do the surefire vampire scout lights have such poor white light performance? Will modlite ever make a dual IR/white light like that?

>>46021161Buy one and go backpacking with it and see if it's worth it to you. Good bivys weigh less than a pound, so to burn 3 for a shovel that isn't that functional I've found to be a waste. Every pound starts to matter when you want to carry it more than 10 miles over tough terrain.
>>46022889pic related>>46022816I'll definitely shill beez all day, I love their stuff. If I get a second plate carrier ever, it'll be beez
>>46022668well I have been bullied into not wanting one now. probably better to go with a d3cr heavy anyway
>>46022975just buy a plate carrier and an esstac placard
>>46021161You don't want that, get a cold steel spetsnaz entrenching tool. There was a guy who took on on that show Alone and won due to having it. He serrated one side of the shovel to function as a saw and talked about how much lighter, longer, and more durable it was compared to that trifold, plus if the handle broke he could make his own to replace it.
>>46023035this was for a chest rig setup with no armour. for my carrier I'm just gonna get an esstac placard
>>46022975Why buy something now that you'll barely use when you'll just end up buying a plate carrier since that's what you should be buying in the first place
>>46023098now we're back to square one here. my original plan was to get a micro fight for three mags up front + a bit of admin for range shit on top of my scarab (which is on back order for 2 months lol). Now that I think about it that shits fine for my uses, and since you are right in saying I would never use a chest rig if I had armour, I'm just gonna go with my initial plan an forget about another rig unless I feel like getting one later on.

>>46017186That mandible cover may not be the best if you're going to be on foot all day, but for a defensive, stationary position where you won't be doing a lot of moving, it shouldn't be a disadvantage.

i have a pair of freemascot glasses for laser protection, but the problem is that they fog up SUPER EASILY. like within 10 seconds of putting them on they're already fogged up, even with using an antifog sprayim thinking its probably because of the science-based design. are there any laser blocking lenses (blue/green) for just regular eyepro? like how you get the clear and black lenses for them?
>>46024343pic of the foggy glasses
>>46024343If the problem is them fogging, you could try just putting something to space them off your skin so that you can get some airflow. Doing so is going to probably lessen the protection since a laser near your eyes can now spill into it without the glasses blocking, but trade offs.
>>46024390the problem is if you look at the pic is that the shelf coming off the lens is so long that pushing them forward slides the glasses off my nose
>>46024409do it 4 eyes kid playing basketball style and get a wraparound strap to keep them tight
Full send on a tactical tailor 3 day plus pack?
>>46024409I mean, if you don't need them to ever go back to being superior protection, you could easily punch/drill some vent holes in the shelves, or even snap them off.

>>46025314It's a 3A rated mandible. It would absolutely protect from shrapnel and even gunfire. The issue is the lack of a visor that also has such protection. At best you can get one rated for light fragments only.
>>46025314>I know u would be called a bitch in the military or anywhere elseIf one of my soldiers did this I would just laugh and make sure he brought enough water so he wouldn't pass out.

reeee please someone convince me that i'll never be shot at by an angry fudd with 30.06 during the boog so I can rationalize buying hesco u210s to replace my heavy ass highcom 4s17ms reee i fuckin get that I only wear armor to larp in my basement and with my friends innawoods but god damn it it's bugging me that their marketing team isn't reassuring me it can brush off 30.06 and x54r
>>46025549.30-06 is more prevalent than you think bud
>>46025626please sir pander to me and what i want to hear so i can order some dank 4 pound plates for quadruple what I paid for mine that will stop fudd calibers
Hesco 4601 and 3612 released on saber solutions. No stats aside from price yet; the 4601 is quite a bit pricier than the 4600.
>>46025637nigga I ain't gonna lie to you but at the same time it's your money so spend it on what you want.You know what? Buy them. Wear the 4lbs in conjuction with the 8lbs. They'll cancel the weights out so 8lbs-4lbs=4lbs. Then you'll just have 4lbs on each side with the ability to stop drunk fudds and their .30-06 and poor slavaboos with their mosins
How many socks and boots do you pack for dipping out to the woods indefinitely?
>>46025832Depends on if I have my truck or am packing it out, and if I'm packing out, depends on if I'm going heavy, light, or ultralight. Also depends on season.
>>46025314Bro just grow a beard, thats the real reason operators do it.
>>46025832>How many socks?At least three pairs. Also, you can improvise Fußlappen with pieces of fabric.
>>46025940Well if he's saying indefinitely, 3 pairs of socks is a bit low, I'd say 14

For some fucking reason my package that had 4 level 4 plates, 2 condor carriers, mag pouches was not requiring a signature and taken off my porch. Now the question is, if I put a fake package as a trap and lay in my ghillie suit outside my home, if I hit the guy on my porch and he doesnt fall from a 308, does that mean that hes the gun with my kevlar?

Are Macrostreams a decent light for pocket carry? I can barely find anything about them since SHITSHOW earlier this year.I love my Microstream, but I feel I can go a little bigger with length and diameter for more loomenz. The Macro looks almost as big as my Fenix PD35 in some of these images.
Are side plates worth the extra weight/money?I know it all depends on what you're doing, but say im setting up to prevent communists from protesting in my neighborhood, and i could get shot while out on the open. would side plates be a significant reduction in my chances of recieving a new asshole in my chest?
>>46030359Holy shit you're right. I never look at his pictures.That's retarded.
>>46028917It's bc of corona, shipping companies don't have to get a signature right now, company policy is the carriers sign that it was delivered so they don't have to interact with and get infected from someone signing for the package. You have to do hold for pickup.t. usps employee
>>46030396>im setting up to prevent communists from protesting
>>46030396this shouldn't even be a debate. ignoring the fact that they're annoying to wear for 95% of people, they don't protect anything other than a small square at the bottom/under your lungs. they dont come up high enough to prevent armpit/shoulder pass-throughs, which in my mind makes them pointless. This is all on top of the fact that you should squared up with a threat if you have plates on anyway.
>>46030599I'm just using that as a potential example. I would do this, of course.>>46030615You make good points. Any round that would hit you from the side would go straight through your shoulder anyway.Is there any data about lives being saved from sideplates?
>>46030653Ive never seen a study about side plates, just plates in general. If I were to guess, I'm sure some guy got saved in Fallujah when he ran into a house without looking. Turret gunners as well maybe, before they had those fuckers buttoned up like they do today.
>>46030302thank you that looks like an option. Although $50 for that swift clip kit is fucking ridiculous and at that price point I might as well just add 3 tacos to my carrier and call it a day
>>46028944>Condor>Expensive>>46028917Why 2 carrier setups and and exp with Condor? sounds like the did you a favor
>>46030774other places sell swiftclip kits as well so take a look around, may be able to find one for cheaper.
>>46030615>you should squared up with a threat if you have plates on anyway.I think people should plan for the absolute worst case instead of some imagined perfect shootout on a flat plain
Anyone on the safariland mailing list who can tell me what the fuck is up with the doomsday countdown on their website?
>>46031018Well go ahead and wear side plates if you think they're of any value at all. Actually, while you're at it, you should probably get shoulders protectors, and a groin flap, probably a neck guard as well. Might as well throw in forearm and thigh protectors while we're at it, since we should be planning for the ABSOLUTE WORST CASE™

>>46031367Well it is entertaining to argue over dumb shit like this
