Trying to get my Comms situation set up. Wut radio iz gud? I've been told to avoid Baofeng.
>>48416121Just checked my mail still no versacarry belt I’m wondering if the phlster classic loop will actually fit it though since it’s thick
>>48416390honestly baofeng is probably fine
New uniform. Rate
>>48416435Looks great! What camo pattern is it?
>>48416496Soldier 2000. It's a South African camouflage.
>>48416390Unless you are willing to learn about HAM radio (note I didn't say you have to get licensed, just learn), then any radio other than an FRS/GMRS walkie-talkie or a scanner isn't going to be that useful to you. Learn a little and you won't need people to tell you what radio you need because you'll know.
>>48416429>>48416644Thanks Guys. I'm working on getting into HAM. For now I'll just use a Baofeng. I got snowed in during the Texas Blizzard and would rather not be without comms
>>48416435I dig it. How's the fit player?
>>48416644>>48416664baofengs are easy as balls to use
>>48416435looks nice. combat pants and shirts always look cool, its a shame the stretchy material isn't the camo color though
>>48416435cool, where did you get it?
>>48416390You're being told that by retards.A UV-5R is cheap, if you enjoy programming it and listening in on fudds and NOAA then get something better.>>48416644Fag.
Opinion on Bravo Concealment holsters ?
>>48416400The phlster holster guy looks like such a tool
>>48416704Fit good. Better than my Arktis set.>>48416801I got mine used, but they are Roman Kurmaz uniforms.
>>48416899I wonder how much bank that man has made already
>>48416121/arg/ is mean. Who makes the best mlok handguard covers? They all look exactly the same to me but I'm sure the more expensive ones are made from better, more heat resistant materials, right?
>>48417099I think /arg/ is right on this one why do you need covers?
>>48417200I have soft, child-like palms.
Defense mechanisms promised me a 2 week lead time. If it doesn't ship today, they're liars.
>>48417307How you gonna hate from outside of the club? Ye can't even get in! Haha! Leggo
>>48417307This is gonna be hard to hear anon but it’s not gonna ship in two weeks. I haven’t had a single quoted lead time be accurate for anything I’ve purchased recently
>>48417307you should cancel your order if they don't, that'll show them
>>48417653That suppressor an omega 36? How do you like it?
>>48417653I got a beez order to ship next day
>>48417653I have an order scheduled to come in march 5th but it arrived in the neighboring city yesterday
>>48417099BCM or Magpul. Depends how much bulk you want to add.
>>48416794Soldier 2000 is not a bad camo if you've got a lot of brown.Take a picture of you wearing it with the rest of your gear
What’s a good source to buy KYWIs from? Directly from esstac?
>>48416435Uniform fits well.
>>48418138>>48418249Didn't see your comment. Was looking for yous before I posted pic.

/gq/, what bellyband is best for new C9? >Also kelly green rit Crye G4 multicam FR pantas after a three day soak.
>>48418675fuck my life
>>48418675>what bellyband is best for new C9?duck tape
>>48418740far more than what it deserves, honestly.
>>48418746You can do anything with tape
>>48418339I can’t tell if your memeing or not>>48418376
>>48418770>You can do anything with tapemaybe, yes, but we must also first ask if we should
Should I go 2 rifle 1 pistol mag pouch or 2 pistol 1 rifle mag pouch for a battle belt? I really don’t see myself using the pistol as this is not a competition setup
>>48419025how many rifle mags on your torso?
>>48419025how many other rifle mags are you carrying?
>>48419025Are you going to mount a pistol to your belt? If you're not going to even carry a handgun then don't put a pistol mag on your belt???I have two pistol and two rifle mags but I do shoot 2-gun. I have a 30" - 32" waist and the pistol mags are at my 10 o'clock, one rifle at my 9 and the other rifle mag at my 8You can just buy individual Kywis too, you don't have to get them all attached together if you intend to change things in the future
>>48418160i ordered from esstac this morning and it was shipped same day

>>48419040>>484190444 in a chest rig over a PC
>>48419076I’m gonna carry the pistol on my belt too. I just don’t see myself using it really but want to have it and feel like if I’m gonna have it I might as well carry one mag to clear jams
>>48419211Just a wolf hook sling but he's being rarted with it>>48419272>over a PCSurely you mean clipped in to the PC? And if you only have 4 on PC, then you should do 2 on your belt, or endeavor to carry more on your torso.
>>48418093Was it back ordered?
>>48417880Saker 556k and I love it.
>>48419025There's no reason to have more than 2+1 pistol mags.
>>48419370nah just coming sooner than expectedjust a dumb patch though
what do y'all think about this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3MuMAS8Ww0&feature=emb_title
>>48419569I think you posted in the wrong thread

>>48419662>posts poop girlMore eww
>>48419396Yea that was my point. All the shit that I’ve bought back ordered is taking 2x longer then quoted.
Are Truglo fiber optic Glock sights good?
>>48419833Then what should I get? Its a Glock 29 and the red dot is going on my Glock 20
>>48419301It’s a Haley strategic chest rig clipped to a mayflower APC but I don’t know how to run the side clips so I loop the side straps of the chest rig around the back of the APC over the cumberbund. I feel like that’s not right
>>48419662Is it bad I didn't see the poop at first and completely ignored it after I did see it because of the ass underneath it?I'm a nurse and I see a lot of poop so that might be why.
>>48419938Yeah man, it's a ton of poop. Like she was on opioids for a bit or something I assume.
>>48419288I think this probably comes down to what your waist size is. If you can comfortably fit 2 pistol and 2 rifle then go for it, but if it's easier with 1 pistol then go for that. I recommend that you buy the belt first, put it on, and work out what you can reach and what works the best in terms of real estate on your available molle spaces.
>>48419938RNbro are you American?I am europoor nursing student and we use everything in metric system.Do you calculate medication doese in fluid ounces or micropounds or something?
>>48419662Different girl.Stay off of twitter.
>>48420038I don't have twitterNever seen anyone ever claim it was anyone else though
>>48420027lmao no, that would be terrible. Everything is metric.
>>48420074Lmao. You're a lib who bought into the "poop girl" meme. Dumbass. That's not even where the meme came from.

Holy shit this prana shirt is nice.Thanks for the rec gq.

>>48419895You use swift clips on the sides. WhiskeyTwoFour, ITW and mayflower have guides for you
>>48420835ATS >>48420770You’re welcome>>48420721That’s not how your spell either Mayflower LWPC or Defense Mechanisms or even Crye JPC
>>48420835We don't like niggers
>>48420898Did you order it yet?Looks like im about a week away from the g17 if all goes well.
>>48420721its not unless you're trying to "grey man" it and wear a plate carrier under your hoodie. JPC 2.0 and Strandhogg are x1000 better
>>48419662This was a lie spread by all the people that don't like the gun girl.Im not a fan either, but this is a great example of how the truth can be whatever people decide it is.

>>48418249How do you like the AXL adapter. I've been thinking about getting one but all I actually want out of it is the velcro field.
>>48420835PIG 2L from SKD.>>48421101I think you might actually need large SAPIs.

>>48421598the mags aren't upside down
>>48421101My roommate said he wanted you to take a picture without the carrier raising your arms up so he can see that tummy peeking out from your shirt.
>>48421889why do you think everyone keeps buying the stupid ass pouch for under their carrier? They are hiding their fat guts.
best sub $200 pistol light?
>>48422387Surefire used or TLR-1HL I guess
How good are these mag pouch inserts? Just starting out with gear
>>48422484what do you have?
>>48422489Thinking of gluing it into my m16 bandolier
>>48422484It says airsoft in the file name
>>48422484If your pouch needs these inserts to retain well, you need a better pouch
>>48422387>mfw when no war criminal midwest wife
Recommend me a good retention holster that isn't Safariland, and definitely isn't a lolSerpa.
>>48422585T5, Blade Tech
>>48422608No positive retention. Needs a thumbbreak or a button or sumthin.
>>48422640The both offer it bud my retention holster is a T5
>>48422640>not safarilandWhy would you not buy from objectively the best holster company on earth which has supplied literally tens of millions of soldiers, cops, security guards, and private citizens with quality holsters since forever?>I want a lightweight high cut ballistic helmet but not made by GentexThis is what you sound like
>>48422668Maybe I'm rated but https://blade-tech.com/collections/holster-finder?_=pf&pf_opt_make=Glock&pf_opt_model=19%2F32%2F44%20Gen%201-5%20%2F%2023%20Gen%201-4I dont see any retention options
>>48422640Did you only check the homepage without scrolling? Pic related is a T5 with a Blade Tech retention hood. I remolded it for a different gun so it looks wierd.
>>48422682I have had a Safariland ALS somehow manage to somehow lock up on me in the past and it was not a fun day. I had to later disassemble the whole thing to get the pistol out. I want something else.
>>48422689I guess they just make the hardware now. This is the T5 website.

Does anyone have a duffle bag recommendation? able to transfer, say, 50 loaded mags, a case with a pistol, and rifle, and spare parts?
>>48423011just buy a surplus duffel

>>48423079that looks perfect. thanks anon, I really appreciate it
Is this a good price for a pack?https://colemans.com/u-s-g-i-mystery-ranch-thor-iii-assault-pack

>>48420027Growing up I knew an older pharmacist who hated the switch to metric. Nowadays the medical field has switched entirely to metric for reasons that escape me.Personally I am an engineer, and we still use American standard units in my field (hydrology and hydraulics).
Been stalking through eBay for a goretex parka, has anyone here used/owned API LLC parkas?I'm assuming they're issued gear, was opting for a Patagonia shell but if these are quality I'll snag one
>>48422682not him but they don't make G40 holsters had to go to Dara for my level ii g40 holster, but I like their products well enough.
>>48423317>in my fieldThat's the rub. It really doesn't matter which system you use, as long as the people you work with use the same one.>reasons that escape meEvidence-based healthcare.But really, not all of medical has switched over. For instance you still take a lot of vitals in degrees fahrenheit, pounds, inches, etc. Home health you have to give some old lady instructions to take her liquid stuff in teaspoons and tablespoons because she's not driving 30 minutes to the pharmacy to get a medication cup or oral syringes, etc., etc.
>>48421648Its for a photo op
>>48421748>plenty for meThey arent performing the function they were designed for, but sure. Live your truth honey.>plenty for my larpOh your just retarded.
>>48423430yeah but you can take measurements in any systemI can give you injections in cui not cc I can give you medication in grains or drachms not in grams I personally just dont see the advantage of easy conversion between orders of magnitude, which metric offers, as being more worth than the ease of division that standard units offer, being very highly divisible. That is, if we can agree the units dont really matter, if we all understand what we're saying, then why bother switching?
>>48423518I just told you, evidence-based healthcare. Even relatively low-level healthcare workers like APRN's publish or at least aggregate.
>>48423551But why did we stop collecting the data in american standard units and start collecting it in metric? The metric system is not required for collecting and analyzing data.
>>48423601C'mon man, you know what "publish" means.
>>48423655I do, and I know MOST of the medical research done in the mid 20th century was done in the United States. At the time metrification really took hold in the professional world (to my knowledge) the USA was pretty much doing all the important research. So why metric not standard? Why did our professionals switch, not euros? I was young in the mid 20th century, and I was baffled then talking to professionals in the field, and I'm still baffled now.
>>48419938That's a 4/10 ass at best.
>>48423518Medicine is 90% theatre and it helps to have things the common people aren't familiar with.
>>48423765You're just saying that because of the age of the chick owning it.It's identical to prime 10/10 milfie ass. Broaden your horizons my guy.
>>48423804Ehh, it looks tiny and deflated. Maybe it's the angle and/or being prone, but it's nothing remarkable.
>>48421736>Thinking a standard you accept in your own head applies to everyone in absolutionMETTC, nogear neverserved
>>48423826>and/or being proneThat and being literally unconscious, lmao. Have you never had a woman fall asleep on your shoulder?
>>48423871Only on the internet could you debate about the quality of an unconscious ass covered in shit
Is AOR2 actually an effective camo?AOR1 is clearly an amazing desert camo, but I feel like its green counterpart is lacking
Does anyone know if Mayflower's 7.62 (NATO) rig would be suitable for AK mmagsIn general are AR10/7.62 mag pouches sized close enough for AK mags?
>>48424195Just use MARPAT.
>>48423987Look at it practically:>baby wipes fix the shit>time and coffee fix the unconsciousness and hangoverWhereas:>months of diet and resistance training are required to "fix" an ass (genetics allowing)
>>48424195AOR2 is an amazing camo, check out bret3301's video showcasing its effectiveness.
What a great deal!
>>48424502Is that a kevlar vest, made to look like a shirt?Why would they do this?
>>48424502Lol, that fucking line.
>>48424410She'd need all three <:^)
>>48424410>baby wipes fix the shitOh yeah, so now she smells like baby wipes AND shit
>>48424252There are better AK options.
Is Bearwood Armory legit?
>>48424522Stopped watching porn recently and this pic makes me want to rape and plunder a coastal village

I would like the functionality of a shemagh (cover, water filter, face covering, etc) but without it actually being a cringey soldier wannabe thing.Any large scarves that function similarly without the shemagh look?
>>48424502What is up with the Safelife shill squad recenty? The armor construction is mediocre at best and not NIJ certified. The carrier itself is made in Ching-Chong land, and the armor is "made from imported materials".You seem like the same retard from the other day who was samefagging. >t. person who bought one with stimmy chexNobody has to watch it, but here's my take on it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=US4WCGCZbhQ&ab_channel=Jesse%27sFunTimes
>>48424784>actually buys safelife>doesn't understand basic ironyAnon, i believe you may be mentally deficient.
>>48424803Shemaghs are significantly larger. Thats their main appeal.You can't tie a bandana into an arm sling, or cover your head, face, and neck.Its gotta be large and strong.
>>48424780Get a 3x3' piece of cotton broadcloth in whatever color you want and use it as a headwrap. Keep a couple spares in your bag.
>>48424849>adding requirementsOkay dweebA cravat
>>48424849Just get a piece of material from a craft store. Not sure I'd rub cordura all over my face, but it would be strong.
>>48424801You're right, but we all are mentally deficient if we actually post on 4chan. I may actually shoot it just to see if it actually stops anything since in a way, the US taxpayer (and I, I guess) bought the vest.

>>48425024>>48425062Reading this makes you feel like you're schizophrenic.
>>48425166Mossy Oak™ Break-Up Eclipse (© Mossy Oak™) is already being phased out and clearanced, anon. This is your chance to buy in without getting scalped by a reseller. We know you miss all the FOG and WRMFZY and Spiritus drops, why not strike it big on Mossy Oak™ Break-Up Eclipse (© Mossy Oak™)? You could be as happy as this man!
>>48424780You can always get solid colored shemaghs that don't have the typical houndstooth pattern
>>48423833It's METT-TC, and that applies to how much you go above the bare minimum set by actual regulations.
>>48423011Get a squire

>>48425725Nay, image intensifier-based NV is miles and miles more useful, unless you're just mounting it to your rifle to shoot at animals on your property.
Any recs for a good goretex shell that isn't retarded expensive? Brown preferred
>>48425899How much is "expensive" ?https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Wild-Things-SO-2-0-GORE-TEX-Alpinist-Hard-Shell-Jacket-Coyote-Large-61008/223545644463
>>48425968That's not bad, though I'd probably cop civvy dead bird for that price unless they're leagues better
>>48425993>Civvy deadbirdGenerally avoid for larping purposes, lots of reflective elements and bad color issues. And the IR signature is a nogo. The LEAF stuff is leagues better than the civvy stuff in every way possible. WildThings in general is maybe 80-90% of the garment for 50-70% the cost. If you sit there and lurk ebay hard enough you can find people selling them for like $100 which is stupid good pricepoint.If you are just hiking civvy arc g2g but so will most shit from REI.t.

Malice clips or WTF straps for KYWIS?
>>48426063Thanks a2anon.What are your thoughts on fjallraven? I own one of their black parkas that I bought a few years ago and it's pretty solid, their colors are very nice though and I've been eyeing their pants for a while
>>48425629That doesn't apply to me shooting in the woods on my day off. That aside, I keep an appropriate load on my IOTV and in a bag when I'm at work.
>>48426303I have a pair of kebs and they are okayHonestly not worth it compared to arc or crye.The G1000 material is a meme and the workmanship is eh.Cut is fairly trim and the features are decent imo but thats not enough to set it apart. Consider beyond if you want to move outside the crye/arc ecosystem.>>48426275WTFs
>>48426275Zip ties, faggot
>>48426275I'm saying this as your friend, if you have malice clips lying around anywhere throw them in the trash.
>>48426355Why? Malice clips work fine
>>48423456? That 10x12 covers my nipples. Not like 99% of us here are actually doing real shit anyway.
>>48426334>That doesn't apply to me shooting in the woods on my day off.Sure, but you only shoot a couple mags when you go out?>IOTV Guard or reserves?
>>48426429Maybe you're just fat then.Either way your dismissal of critism because "were not doing real shit anyway" is pure cope.Why buy the equipment then?
>>48426275tactical tailor's Malice Clips specifically. The older Malice clips were overly stiff and a pain in the fucking ass to thread, but later versions of them are softer and a lot easier to weave, wile retaining the same secure locking of the previous generation. make sure you get the malice clips with the cutouts on the sides instead of straight, the ones with the cutouts are the newer ones
>>48426429>Not like 99% of us here are actually doing real shit anyway.If you're going to LARP you should at least LARP well. Why even bother otherwise? Don't half-ass it.
>>48426478My shooting spot's 5 min. away from home, I prefer to go a few times a week rather than hours on one day. Guard. >>48426505Maybe, so what? I dismiss the bit on plate sizing because it's garbage advice, also had nothing to do with the AXL adapter I asked about. I buy it because it feels better to train in than bulkier gear. >>48426655What's larping well? Buying a L/XL SAPI? Or putting on a helmet and battle belt to take a picture and ask about a placard adapter?
what gear does /GQ/ recommend an off duty security officer carry?
>>48426732>Guard.pottery>What's larping well?carrying the normal amount of mags so your weekend warrior ass doesn't get Jessica Lynched one day
>>48426539Defense mechanisms malice clips are exceptionally good.
>>48426849Defense mechanisms isn't a real company
>>48426832I spent 8 years active with 3 AFG deployments out of Lewis and Carson before going guard. When that shitty TAPS rack came out I learned pretty quickly that you don't need all 7 on your body, throwing 3 or 4 mags in your assault pack is fine. I'm also a medic so access to MAR equipment is more important.
Fixed blade recommendations? Likely won't be mounting to a PC but I'd like to have one for when I'm out camping/hiking.
>>484269374ID might be pants on head retarded at times but I have a hard time believing they let you get away with that nonsense there, even if it was 3rd bde or some shit. Idk about lewis though.
>>48426957Any model in particular? I'm not huge on the USMC but I love this:https://www.kabar.com/products/BK18Also expected it to be twice the price which was pleasant
>>48425899I was gunna recommend a jacket I've worn every day as a 3 season jacket for going on 5 years, but it's soft shell, not gortex. >>48426938What are you going to use it for and what's your budget?

>>48427016Well Cold Steel makes a 3V general purpose knife, the SRK 3V version at right around $150, which is probably the best price for 3V steel and will likely last longer than you.

What are your guys' recommendations for 3 day packs? I have an LBT that I've yet to touch and despite the obviously good build quality it seems pretty old/durdly design wise.Is mystery ranch a meme? Any others to look at in the same price range like first spear?
>>48427841You may not like it etc etc
>>48427891Your LBT with an internal frame is fine - some might even say The Standard.If you want an external frame: Eberlestock is my suggestion
>>48427891>haven't tried out your pack>already looking to replace itbruh momentgo try it out
>>48427906I didn't say it because I was shy, but the main reason I want to change is I want something coyote brown/RG, the LBT I have is woodland.>>48427902I guess I'll hang with it for the time being. I was eyeing some Hill People Gear bags because they look sexy as fuck but I should probably stop being such a fag about it
>>48427892Too good for the power rack?
>>48427891wtf does "durdly" mean?
>>48427945Pics? You trying to get rid of it?
>>48427945>but the main reason I want to change is I want something coyote brown/RG, the LBT I have is woodland.You know they offer that exact same pack in those colors, right? Why did you get it in woodland then?
>>48427965I’m right outside of the cage; I’ve never used the guards
Am I gonna make it /gq/? >INB4 someone rips my ass for the USGI magpouchesI have tactical tailor pouches on order, they are just taking their time to craft them with love. Or some shit.>INB4 NO PLATES!!!11!!one!I have basic ass Hecso 4400s but I keep them in the box they shipped in so they aren't stressed/my PC isn't stretched out hanging. Also not pictured are my basic ass Razor Walkers and my FAST because Gentex is still making it.
Speaking of LBT, they have a sale on right now. Multicam and MAS Gray PCs on sale for under $300, and pretty much everything MAS Gray is on sale as well
>>48427992>I have basic ass Hecso 4400s but I keep them in the box they shipped in so they aren't stressed/my PC isn't stretched out hanging.You arent going to make it
>>48427979Because I got it as a part of one of their bundle sales and paid half price, plus woodland is nice but I've since started orienting my gear to be RG/coyote accented >>48427977I'll take some when I get home, if I lock down a new pack to buy I'd sell it.>>48427966I just realized this is a stupid obscure MTG term I've been misappropriating as genuine English, oops. It stems from the word dawdle: to be slow and inefficient
>>48428006Huh. I've played MTG for like 6 years and never heard it before. But I only play in a relatively small play group.
>>48428006Self reply here but picrel looks ideal for me. Unfortunately Hill People Gear is basically inactive, and the frame + belt + bag is pushing 500 dollars
>>48427992>INB4 someone rips my ass for the USGI magpouchesI actually have some USGI pouches on my PC too because I like them and they can be used for various mags.>I keep them in the box they shipped in so they aren't stressed/my PC isn't stretched out hangingThis is rarted, put them in the plate carrier and keep it laying flat on the ground in your closet if that's a concern.>what I assume is a giant dump pouch on the cummerbundremove, dump pouches go on belt>cummerbunds are backwardselastic goes in the back>sole soft armor is massive dick flapjust ditch it>admin pouchWhat's in it?>tramp stamp panellose that too>no medical or hydrationremedy this
>>48428002I have heard so much conflicting information on how to store plates. When I was in the service we just chucked those bitches around in our packs if they weren't in our carriers because who cares, we'll get new ones before we deploy again. Now I am just a lone dood without the budget to be buying new plates if I fuck them up all the time. Not to mention how hard it is to find armor in stock for more than 3 minutes with fucking /gundeals zerg swarming everything. What do I need to do with my plates tripboy?
>>48427992>BANG CRASH>oh shit some people are inside>time to do some home defense>let me just go to the closet and start assembling my armor>I have basic ass Hecso 4400s but I keep them in the box they shipped in so they aren't stressed/my PC isn't stretched out hanging.>am I gonna make it? no lolI bet you put bandaids on every millimeter of broken skin you've ever had
>>48428006>Because I got it as a part of one of their bundle sales and paid half price, plus woodland is niceFair enough. I also paid half price for my woodland one but it wasn't a bundle.
>>48428070>fucking them up>Sitting on a shelfpick one, they arent dinner plates or ceramic tiles. They take a lot to break, they tell you to baby them because if they dont you will break them due to 11aBuse. Put them in the carrier and hang it.
>>48428065I just assumed the bigger velcro went in the back, I am used to the MTV which has that cord thread system for the cumberbund band. I also don't have a warbelt yet so the moderately big ass dump pouch stays for now. I'll stuff my plates since I am dumb apparently. I just kidna threw the soft armor on for the memes desu. Admin pouch is empty but I plan to have a multitool, small light, notepad, and a sharpie in there. I also ahve a camelpak not pictured, my bad for not mentioning it. And I just ordered the guts for my IFAK but I can't find an actual IFAK pouch I like in stock anywhere online that isn't black.
>>48428083>Putting on your PC while someone is actively getting in your shitNah. I have a nightstand gun for things that go bump in the night. If I have time to put on my kit then I am in a different scenario.>>48428107Alright, thanks for the info. Makes sense that they were just trying to stop us from clubbing eachother over the head with them.
>>48427992Side note, would I be dumb as fuck if I used that codpeice as a soft backer for my front plate? Looks like it would actually fit pretty well... I can afford the ~$200 for soft backers but as mentioned, I can't find shit in stock
>>48416121What gear does the Guardians of the faith use in the handmaids tale?
>>48428130>I just assumed the bigger velcro went in the backIt's ok, semi-common mistake. Although it also looks like you have the cummerbunds upside down too as the tabs are on bottom instead of being on top
>>48427992The people here are a little rough around the edges, but smart, and direct, and looking out for you.
>>48428130Chinook has low profile ones in coyoteATS and tactical tailor inserts work in dual mag pouches
>>48428176Listen man, not did the thing just came in pieces direct from SKD, but I got no hip-pocket class and it has been three hours since I last ate a crayon. And I'm lysdexic.
>>48428171You don't need a soft backer for modern plates>>48428173actual condor and some IBA ripoff
>>48428200It's ok bud we're here to help. You didn't know, I get that.
>>48428185I might be being retarded again but I don't know what you are trying to say to me. I think you are saying my kit is fucked up so more experienced people would be looking at my bambi ass if we all stopped larping and went chargers to the game, but I don't know.
>>48428191I'll look at those options, thanks. Might also just hit up the local milsurp store. I got those mag pouches for 50c per, hard to beat.
>>48428214I appreciate the help, really. And it was even non-toxic, who knew /gq/ was so based? Any suggestions for a good belt? I was probably just going to order what I used while I was in, pic related, unless you guys have a more good to go option.
>>48428232It's possible you could snag a USGI ifak at the surp store, which is fine if you're sticking it on your cummybund. If you eventually get a belt I'd suggest something else like Coyote STOMP or the beez ifak
>>48428207Noted. What a time to be alive.
>>48428264Honestly sometimes it's pure shitposting, sometimes it's actually helpful, and sometimes it's toxic retardation. I wouldn't have it any other way.So I would stay away from one of those big ass padded belts, those aren't really meta anymore. A thinner 2 piece is the way to go, check out the AWS LAB if you want to keep it cheaper, or AWS SMU for a bit more. Or Blue Alpha Gear belt, or even Ronin.
>>48427999Are you a civilian?If you get a full Grey setup for much cheaper then that would objectively be the smart decision.
>>48428288>RoninRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE STOLEN DESIGN FUCK YOU TUUUUUUUUT. Guy who owned one for a long timeJust get an SMU. Seriously, there’s no reason not to
>>48428288Is AWS > eagle ogb?
>>48428288Two piece belt from chink airshit site shootercombatgear is genuinely justasgood
>>48428316>Are you a civilian?Former active booty army but now a dirty civilian larper>>48428318Oh, I agree 100%. Just giving the guy options. I do unironically like the lab because the panels are taller
>>48428265I was looking on Beez's website, looks like nice stuff. The fold-out design is nice, we were still using the normal buckle-flap pouch ifaks. Made it hard to find stuff in a hurry without dumping it.>>48428288I'll definitely be dropping by a bit more as I fix shit on this kit. I have heard about the Ronin. I will look into the AWS options and the blue gear. I won't miss how sweaty all that damn padding made me.
>>48428330I actually didn't know eagle made one, but they're good. Does it come with the inner belt though? If not, maybe avoid.>>48428331Bold opinion. I don't agree with it or respect it, but I acknowledge it.
>>48428334Gray looks cool for civilian larping like those euro police units
>>48428353Legit buy the TMC 1.5" belt and try it they're $19 and they work great. I got one for $9 on black Friday from aliexpress. Just don't climb with it.
>>48428232>my local milsurp sells them $10 each
>>48428224Accept the feedback and roll with it, even if you don't understand it yet or get butthurt. And lurk more.
>>48428288Alright so I am looking at te AWS LAB, is their IFAK good to go? If I can have it built to order then I'll just get an IFAK with my belt. I assume I need the pouch and the insert.
>>48428429mmmmmmmm I'll pass>>48428464I'm not a huge fan of their IFAK, but some people like it. NAR makes a good package for the guts of an IFAK
>>48428353The inner belt is an extra 18 bucks I think, so around 140 for both
>>48428330Reversed velcro. Operator dependent>>48428429>>48428331>yeah totally, bro, it works like almost as good. Just, you know, don’t expect it to (insert thing that actual product does)Remove chinky-winky from your nostril>>48428464It’s ok, the hanging is a little annoying
>>48428443God bless anon, that blows. Old fart might have cut me a deal, I chatted with him a bit while I was browsing and then grabbed 4 out of an unmarked bin, he told me $2 and I said sold! >>48428456I will admit I didn't lurk enough, just enough to know that the mayflower APC was a good buy and the Hesco 4400s were good entry-tier plates. And that I should relegate my TacTec to crossfit (>implying)>>48428470Yeah I just grabbed two ifak-gut-packs during their Valentine's sale. Got the intermediate package. and CIF didn't take their TQs back from my issued IFAK so I still have two. I don't think they expire.
>>48428516>the mayflower APC was a good buyyou were correct>TacTec ew>CIF didn't take their TQs back from my issued IFAK so I still have two. I don't think they expire.I love when CIF doesn't take shit back. They don't really expire if stored properly (ie in good temps and out of sun)
>>48428506It holds mag pouches fine, and the Ronin/Blue Alpha/AWS belt isn't rated for climbing either
Is it viable to throw on your outer belt without the velcro inner belt If you need it right away?Like, if you go to pull a mag, it won't lift the whole belt or anything?
>>48428585Yeah, I throw on the outer belt over my parka in the winter and it works fine. So long as you don't have the belt loosey goosey
>>48428543Yeah I got a few little knick-knacks when I was checking out, dude running CIF that day was new and kept telling me to keep shit saying "must have been my roommate's". Nevermind that I was wearing my wedding ring... I didn't argue with the dude, I was just hoping he'd let me keep some of my Gortex or thermal layers (he didn't). I've kept the TQs in a pouch so I think they are good.
>>48428585If the outer belt is hook-side it'll scratch up your clothes after a while. If that bothers you just get a pad. HSGI and Wilder Tactical make belt liner pads for this purpose.
>I was just hoping he'd let me keep some of my Gortex or thermal layers They always take back goretex, but you should have been able to keep silks and waffles. I still have mine lol. I wish I was allowed to keep the fleece but oh well.Also shout out to Fort Carson CIF having an unsecured back entrance for the loooongest time
>>48428639meant for >>48428597
>>48428578>rated for climbingBut it is a leg loop/personnel retention lanyard anchoring point that’ll actually save your life and all that
>>48428681>A two piece molle belt which holds mag pouches and an IFAK can be had for $19>REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YOU HAVE TO BUY A $200 BELT IN ORDER TO CLIMB
>>48428331>>48428429>>48428732Post pics of stitching for our collective amusement
>>48428654I was Marines not Army, they are supposed to take everything that doesn't have a stitched nametape/is tailored. Shit kinda sucks. Meanwhile the airforce gets to keep their parkas and everything, or so scuttlebutt goes.
>>48428732Fucking team wendy
>>48428732>it holds magsSo does the braided leather belt your aunt bought you when you were 13 - doesn’t mean it’s optimal>but it LOOKS just likeBut it isn’t>but it WIRKS Except (insert everything else it’s supposed to do)>but the QUALITYIs subpar >you’re just Interested in actual gear for actual use for both my professional and personal activities>butNIGGER
>>48428732What belt can you get for 19 bucks?I think you're mistaken.
>>48428770Ah I gotcha. Crayola Corps gotta suck ass. Air Force does not keep their marshmallow suits, but they will wear them when it's 60 degrees out because ????>t. Army who got stationed on Air Force Bases and was perpetually salty he never got issued a marshmallow jacket
>>48428792https://www.shootercbgear.com/new/index.php?route=product/product&path=1034_1055&product_id=12275&sort=p.date_added&order=DESC$19It's the cost of one mag pouch.
>>48428754Check out the website >>48428839
>>48428839>Hong Kong websiteNow show me yours, chang
>>48428801Meanwhile here's the Corps, still rocking our inspector gadget coats circa 1950 and getting blasted for wearing our issued thermal base layers under our cammies on below-freezing days. Fucking hell man, I got out for a reason. Lol.
>>48428855Because pictures on aliexpress and shit are always sooooo representative of the actual product that arrives
>>48428264I know other anon's are saying it's not popular anymore, but I still genuinely prefer this older style of belt to the two piece stuff. My favorite set up is just a second thick belt kept to the first, comfy regular belt on your waist with belt keepers. That's the setup a lot of cops used to use, and I still think it's maximum comfy. For exclusively belt stuff anyway, when you have no other gear with you. I didn't read through your reply chain.
>>48428839What's the quality like though?
>>48428894>>48428902https://youtu.be/63fRaBJ0IVQhttps://youtu.be/t3XuK-pAba4Unironically decent quality
>>48428839Definitely a great deal, go ahead and buy it.Stop being upset because people choose to not buy from shady chinese knockoff websites, and are willing to pay what a product is worth.If this works for you, then absolutely buy it--but dont pretend like its the same thong that AWS is producing.
>>48428943Hey there retardIn the first video, he literally says that the knockoff is shittyThe second video is Eagle, not your chinkshit
>>48428943Neither of those videos show what you claim they show.
>>48424676>Masturbation is our most powerful weapon against them.Hence the emphasis on circumcision.
>>48419847I like my Ameriglo's on my g17. I think most people recommend Trijicons.
>>48422585HCM holsters made mine that is similar to a Safariland for my g17 and it only took a couple of weeks completely custom. Has a button depress strap system.
>>48428585You can leave the inner belt attached and throw them both over whatever you are wearing. I really don’t understand why so many people have trouble with this. It’s just velcro you don’t have to separate it if you don’t want to.
>>48428464Get the coyote stomp.
>>48424195Consider K2010 (ROKDF pattern) as an alternative, it works better in some environments
