>>50811909Just gonna repost here missed the new threadIts an old SV2000 and pouches from like 20 years ago, got it in mint condition but they are a bitch to find nowdays. Best rig Ive had tho since you can modify it to be used in belt configuration. It isnt as slick as my chicom or Pattern 83 but I like the modularity the molle gives.
What boot is meta? Looking at Lowa Zephyr or Salomon Quest 4D, but all the recent reviews on the Salos suggest the quality has gone to complete shit. I'm a size 14 wide usually, need something that's waterproofed because I live in a place where it's cool and raining most of the year. Any other options I'm overlooking? Also would be cool if they are available in an earth tone or coyote.
Daily reminder to check in at your local church and start networking.There are many based Anons riddled all over the country, I’ve personally met 8 4chan autists or sympathizers in our age group (17-40) at 2 Eastern Orthodox churches (maybe my math is off and it’s 3, but you get the point).The following is a list of where to meet these Chads>Eastern Orthodox Church (status of the Coptics isn’t known). There are some based folks at the Greek Orthodox, but they are widely regarded as being the most liberal and you should expect a low turnout, if any>Latin Mass Catholic>Random backwoods Protestant churches, possibly mega churches due to the sheer volume of people. Be aware however, mega churches are only valuable because of their numbers, and you’ll meet a bunch of liberals while you’re at it. Don’t raise your hopes, but don’t give up either>But anon, which one is right theologically?Eastern Orthodoxy. But, network. Watch out for the Prots, they can be some of the biggest supporters of Israel, and that’s a clash waiting to happen if you’re even somewhat basedAlso, someone please post the plate and belt listFinallyShould I get my plate carrier in OD, Ranger Green, or Coyote Brown?

>>50814352Frens, I have issue. There’s a girl I’ve been dating for 3 years, and friends with for 9. She disrespected an icon of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and his harrowing of Hades (Pic related is an example). I believe the icon is blessed (I purchased it at church) and I’m legit not sure. She also makes comments like “F*ck your church” and other comments I cannot bear to write though it be quotations. To her defense, there was a time when she was once Christian (for obvious reasons I’m not sure if she still is). I don’t want to leave her, but I’m genuinely in fear she will mess up our future kids spiritual life. To her defense;She has a good heart, I don’t believe she understands the gravity of her actions. She used to delve into the occult, and legit did black magic at one point, as in summoned demons and knew full well what she was doing; and she got extremely good at it. So good that iirc she has actual stuff related to demonic repulsion laying around her house. For whatever reason, I believe she has violent nightmares and often has sleep paralysis and I believe sees things when she has sleep paralysis. I might be mid confusing stories, but I believe she says it often feels like something is sitting on her chest. So, all things concerned; I think she might be under a form of demonic influence. I’ve been debating on sneaking holy water into her drink to see if she spits it out (unironically, this is a form of testing; though it might only apply to possession). Tldr; this girl is extremely sacrilegious but I think she might be under a form of demonic oppression and I don’t know what to do. She refuses to go to church but she genuinely loves me. I’ve been under oppression too, but for entirely different reasons with entirely different outcomes
>>50814564>might be mid confusingMight be confusing*
>>50814564leaveor break heryour call. women need structure, otherwise they get all fucky and do stupid shit like this. she is not anti-church because of any philosophical or intelligent reasons, she’s anti church because it was it’s the “hip” thing for all the normies to do these days.
>>50814352Americans just picking and choosing what to believe will never stop being hilarious to me, really a nation full of larpers.You are born into a religion retards, its not just another thing for you to CONSOOOM
>>50814578I’ve actually talked with her about that; it’s not because it’s cool to hate church; it’s because she found it to be extremely boring when she was younger.She also hates Wicca because it’s a LARP and “their spells are wrong and they don’t work”. Anon I’m not exaggerating, this woman legit could do rituals to summon demons. And this wasn’t the ones that where 1 in a million, she could do it reliably and even got payed by people to do it at one point for reasons I don’t recall. This was almost probably 8 years ago, but you get my point. She’s even seen a demon she summoned when she was doing black magic in an abandoned house
>>50814592demons dont exist
>>50814592The abandoned house incident however was because she was with her friends and they all thought it was cool
>>50814597Yes they do, Jesus casted them out in the gospels. Many saints can attest to it, the church can attest to it, other religions, people who delve in the occult, etc.
>>50814592You are on drugs and that woman is crazy. You options are to fix her, not recommend because that’s a lot of work, or to break that shit off. This is absolutely not something you can just tee hee and ignore because that bitch will probably end up fucking you and any kids you might have with her nonsense

>>50815405Beard left a long time ago>>50815399I really appreciate the knees a lot more, less potential to shift sideways off kneecap and zero chance to get ripped out when high legging over rocks. In terms of cut and patterning id say the arcteryx is the ticket for anything but hot as shit desert, the 50/50 nyco with lack of stretch panels ventilating can be obnoxious if you are in souf arizona or some shit. In hot weather ill grab fjallraven kebs before cryes though. t. Been living exclusively arcteryx for like 8 years at this point
>>50815416is helikon Tex acceptable or trash
>>50815438I just dont know why you would buy it if you are an American poster.Construction and NIR is good to go but honestly their cuts are fairly derivative and unremarkable.For me the knees are a huge thing and arcteryx just does knees the best across the board imo. Being able to push yourself into a quick scramble with zero concern for your legs with the arcteryx is huge and gives you a lot more mobility than you would think.

>>50814352Orthodox youth groups are the best way to fucking network with other shitposters. I went to my local one and started having a conversation with some guy about how the holocaust didn't happen and how mgtow's are fags within about 5 minutes.

>>50815961I am sorry you are such an anti-social young adult that you can barely interact with others in your age group, but there is no need to project that upon other people.
>>50815971my experience with any and all Christian denomination youth groups has not been pleasant
>>50815976I have interacted with a lot of shitty christian youth groups (see XA), and of all of them the only authentic people I have ever met at these have been at Orthodox groups. Where most people come off as stilted/fake, and in these groups to find a gf or something stupid; everyone I have met in the Orthodox youth groups are simply themselves. Never known any to be posers. Also one of the few groups I have had some really good conversations about spirituality with.
>>50815510I’m not even joking, plz help fren
>>50816026You've got to work to figure out who is there to find a gf (or BF, there are crazy chicks who are either past their prime trying to hunt down a "trad" guy or ones who couldn't hack it anywhere else) and if it's serious or not.Sometimes it is as easy as letting them talk about why they're in that group, and seeing who they spend most of their time talking to.One of the guys in my old group did nothing but talk to a group of single girls for the first few weeks he was there, which went about as well as you could expect. I don't view him too badly for this, but he really didn't try to talk with the other guys until he had really burned his chances with the girls.
>>50815559My goal is to aid people in networking; the best of course being in Christ. Because we dawn the greatest of armor, the being the ARMOR OF GOD, we become soldiers for his name and carry his cross triumphantly into battle against the evil of this world, both physical and spiritual. Because the creator has granted us the power beyond our own understanding to battle against the rulers of this earth; it isn’t merely fitting to have… it is essential for all /gq/ threads to dawn the armor of God!
>>50814586>You are born into a religion retardsCompletely wrong, that idea is diametrically opposed to Christianity. Not to mention new religious movements are part of American tradition as well, see the Great Awakenings.

thoughts on the Hoplite IIIA helmets?https: //wraithdefense.com/iiia-high-cut-helmet-fully-loaded/I don't have nods or anything and I don't intend to get any anytime soon, but I figured a decently reliable helmet for a good price would be good just to complete my gear setup.
>>50816429For the amount of money they're charging you could get a Galvion Viper A3 that is actually used by people who might get shot at, for the same price. Instead of a mystery meat helmet sourced from who knows where.
This is just another transparent effort to disrupt the general.

>>50816429Hoplite is generally reputable. A lot of their plates are rebranded LTC, so they are solid for what they are. I do not know who makes their helmets. I would look at one of the old OC helmets on sale first.https://www.armsunlimited.com/Ops-Core-s/4393.htm

>>50816598Damn it sucks! Haha you're a retard
>>50816597>1) because comtacs and amps dont provide any more decibel reductionPainfully wrong with NFMI plugs or the similar system comtacs have and pipe sound in closer to the ear instead of trying to blast through the earplug
>>50816558Optic mount was recommended to me and research yielded it to be a great co witness solution. The fanny is fake but functions exactly the same. Weapon light is and old surefire g2 that functions fine for my purposes. Will upgrade eventually.

>>50816686Sweet, thanks. I'll probably give it a go with the XL. Anything else I should know about the SX before pulling the trigger? Currently nonods but would like to get there eventually.
>>50816762get yourself an ops core counterweight pouch and a task light (Surefire HL-1, Princeton Tec Charge Pro, etc)Even if you are nonodz currently the counterweight pouch is pretty good for holding on to spare batteries for your ear pro and light.

>>50816778Neat, makes sense. On the topic of non-nods useful stuff, are there any helmet-mounted recorders/cameras that are worth a fuck?
>>50816801Go Pro hero is the only one I've tried and it's alright. It's finding a mount that's worth a shit is the problem. I've tried the older Brain Exploder angled mount, which sucked, then a chinesium NVG mount that sucked ultra mega ass. The Brain Exploder NVG mount is the only one that's even vaguely decent and you've got to be careful with how much material you remove from the mount to get it to work with a real NVG mount, not whatever shitty knock off they used for testing.
>>50816829one more tip: wad up some tissue paper and shove it between the shroud and mount. It'll reduce the wobble on the go pro which will greatly improve both audio and visual quality - the camera will jiggle less and make fewer knocking sounds.
>>50816842>>50816829Appreciated. Finally, any go-to helmet covers? Most of my gear is darker than the tan SX and I'd like to not have it pop as much in woodland environments.

>>50816959SX uses standard FAST geometry
>>50816622nope, the shears are thin and the shroud it's mounted to curves it out of the way
>>50817091Ok that's the same material the beanies are made out of, it's gonna be thicker and warmer than the waffles but won't breathe very well.
>>50816782Yeah you absolutely will get that 100% of the time with foamies and they wont slip or shift out/S>>50817077Focus the nods next time
>>50817101Ah nice, didn't realize there was that much of an ecosystem around it. Well, thanks for all the input: order is in. Will report back with another sizing datapoint when I have it in hand.

Hey guys, I got an extremely rare and tough to find helmet for Über cheap, one issue. It’s one size small for me. The helmet is a size medium, and in a large (I have a skull circumstance slightly above 23.5 inches) and the max this one goes to is 22.83. I can purchase a team Wendy air combat liner, but I wasn’t sure if a 10% increase in size would be enough to fit my head. Opinions?>Where do you get 10%The original inner pads are 3/4ths of an inch thick, when replaced to the air liner it is 5/8ths. This is an increase in size of 12.5%, I’m not sure if it’s enough to make it worth my while.For reference:https://www.teamwendy.com/products/aftermarket-systems/liner-systems/epic-air-combat-helmet-liner-system
>>50817305What helmetget 1/2 inch padsdon't be retarded, if it's still too small ditch it, you're compromising protection for your brain
>>50815274I don’t know fren, that’s a bastion of traditionalism and is a threat to the pope himself. If you can’t find any, the Orthodox Church will gladly open her arms to you. You can also visit whenever you want, my church has services in Wednesdays and Saturdays as well (but you might need your Saturday’s for confessional)
>>50817315I’d prefer not to specify which helmet>1/2 inch padsThey exist? Won’t that compromise my ability to take a blunt impact?
>>50817344it's either that or get rid of the helmet.Your impact liner is meant to take the impact, not really the pads. The pads do help quite a bit, which is why you won't find them thinner than half an inch.
>>50817369before you do that, try the .75 pads and loosen the chin strap as much as humanly possible.
Is there any reason other than lack of padding that a modern d-ring gun belt would be unsuitable for via ferrata or climbing with leg loops?
>>50814261Yes it was roughly 200 years after the end of what’s considered the Viking era however the Norse faith was still quite often worshipped in secret. The best guess for the codex was that they were copying things that were being told to them passed down in oral tradition. This is one of the reasons so much of the Norse faith and stories have been lost, very little was written and most were stories passed down.Moderation is definitely important. Funnily enough one of the biggest things the Hávamál says is alcohol in moderation. Contrary to a lot of modern views of the drinking and whoring. Alcohol is viewed as the downfall of wisdom.Death certainly is an interesting concept in most religions, each does have their own very unique views on it. One thing that my faith teaches is not to ignore life for what comes after it. Live life for the sake of living it, do things, see things because after you die you won’t be able to. Then when I die I’ll either end up in Asgard or in Hel, neither of which are a bad place it’s just the next place. I have seen the Lavvu used and it really does look like a cool little piece of equipment and I’d love to get my hands on one at some point. People shit on airsoft but having played it when I lived in the UK I thought it was great fun, and nothing reminds you to check your corners more than the sting of a few pellets hitting you as you run into a room.I’m personally in the military so most of my training is through them doing drills etc, but I also like getting out in the woods and shooting. My free time I enjoy doing longer range stuff and seeing how far I can push my weapons and accurately make my shots
>>50814352Of course the new thread needs a new gem, I’ll give you a double today.Hávamál Stanzas 19-20(Crawford Translation)Don’t hold on to the mead-horn,but drink your fair share.Say something useful or stay quiet.And no one elsewill judge you poorlyif you go to sleep early.A gluttonous man,unless he watches himself,will eat to his own detriment.Wise men will oftenridicule a foolon account of his belly.
>>50817377I have the .75 already senpaiI did the path, assuming medium at max is made for someone who has a skull diameter of 22.5 (it’s actually 22.8/82) and there is a 10% increase in space, the diameter comes out to a new total of 24.75, which puts me well above the intended mark. For reference, I’m using PASGT sizing. The actual increase is 12.5%, but I was low balling the math in the case everything went wrong
>>50817463i really wish there was more available on slav paganism other than weird swastikas and deities repurposed as orthodox saints
>>50814237those pants fit like shit and you look retarded
>>50817513You would be surprised if you have a look around, I know at least for Norse paganism. I’m not so sure about more Slavic paganism but from some of the research I have done it’s very similar to Norse but often with names changed. A lot of the stories seem to follow the same trends.
>>50817275Praise Him.>>50817295Personally I think the buckles at the shoulders would get in the way, but I don't have experience with them. The rest of the carrier looks like the current design meta. Some will argue the strengths/weaknesses of so much laser cut material. It really comes down to build quality and modularity. See how the cumberbund attaches and if you could swap it out for a different one if you want.
the trannyjannies hate jesusposting it is 100% on topic and if you dont like it you can go and fuck yourself because Jesus is always on topic
>>50815484I want to make a juggernaut kit like the one on the left.Does anyone have recommendations for inserts that'll fit a full Osprey setup (collar, shoulders, diaper, etc.)? I was going to try 6x8 side and 11x14 front/back plates. Can't order the originals from the Britbongs because of a weird federal Burger law.
>>50816679Not him, but I ordered a pair of EP3s, thanks A2I too ordered a FAST SX recently. What are some good budget earpro to mount? BBG recommended Tac6s, Ive also heard talk of 3M RangeguardsCurrently have HL poorfag sports
>>50817711If you can get standard iotv go for that fren. Uarms also has an actual functional juggernaut suit, but for 3a it’s like 1,300 dollars. Get that ontop of the shoulder stuff, and whatever weird pads hop life is cooking up and you’re set

>>50814352Legit Eastern Orthodox anon, and to other religious anons.Im not relgious, but, I am fond of the sense of togetherness that people of the same religion have. That is something that I long for, a sense of belonging.I have an odd question though. Im not religious, but not in a edgy anti-religious person like >>50814564's gf, but, I just don't believe. I dont believe in anything, really. How do I believe? I want to believe in something. I want something to believe in, something to fight for, people who think similar to me to call brother/sister.I tried joining an on campus Orthodox Christian group a few years ago just to be around people different people, but, when I get nervous I smile. I wasen't mocking them when they talked about their religious views. It is a total anxiety response and I could tell I put a few people off there.
>>50817760I apologize, I meant ECH
>>50817580at least one tradition seems to be the same all across europe : https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badnjak_(Serbian)
>>50817792Norse anon here. I’ll say this from my personal experience.You can’t force yourself to find a religion, nor can someone force you. I was raised Christian, baptized Catholic, I sang in a choir in a Protestant church, I have been to an episcopal church and even was a member with a Presbyterian church for a few years. Something just never truly clicked with me.For several years I was atheist/agnostic I didn’t believe in any higher power but I wanted to. I wanted to think there was something greater than me. So I started reading I read versions different things from various different faiths and I remember the book I read that led me down my current path.Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology, I read it I enjoyed the way he wrote I enjoyed the stories, I enjoyed it so much I read it again. The second time reading it I started to realize there were lessons in the stories, things I could learn and apply to my life. So I started looking for more texts and information. I won’t lie and say I didn’t feel a bit silly at first, especially with the marvel films portraying the Norse gods in popular media. The more I read though the more I was drawn into it, I watched YouTube videos about it, the practices, the ideas, the gods, and soon I was talking to people that shared their ideals and the rest is history.I cannot tell you what one will be the right fit, nobody can, maybe you won’t even realize it at first. But when you do find something that clicks, just take a deep breath and take that step.
>>50817742I was hoping to just find cheaper kevlar inserts that I could cram into the Osprey's native gubbins, but those UARM bits would work, thanks!The Hoplite stuff, though...>$600 for IIIA femoral plates>$500 for III shoulder platesTempts a man to find a way to strap regular side plates to one's shoulders+thighs and call it a day, even if it would look utterly retarded.

Ahem,Fuck janniesFuck fedsFuck tripfagsAnd fuck thots.
>>50818273Pistol mags on chest rigs invite bullying. They should go on your belt.You should do the 3-4 rifle mags, a tq, and an ifak for a basic grab n go setup.
>>50818318ok thanksmy other thing is not wanting to be jumbled up with some confusing strap arrangement on my back
>>50818273ok, you should look at the micro rigs then. Carry more medical if you can. >>50818318 has a good point. Are you combining this with a belt?
>>50818336not really an issue. Just pick if you like "X" or "H" style.
>>50815230How are the magpul bipods?
>>50818202Absolutely, I met some amazing people at churches. Just recently I had a fantastic conversation with an on post chaplain, a really terrific individual even if we didn’t share the same faith.
Leave the gen I Russian NV to me….
>>50818303Fellow AZ fag
>>50818334you ever find a bag for your gas mask?
For people who own an SPC, how do you break down your carrier for transport and storage? The rigid cummerbund is stiff as fuck, but it also makes it huge and unweildly. Or do you remove it from the carrier every time? Threading the cord is a pain in the ass.
>>50815218kino, this is like a twink version of what I run. ranger green is the best camo ever

>>50817792“There’s a part of everyone that desires to be apart of something bigger then themselves. If you focus on entering the spiritual community of the saints, you will find yourself capable of entering into local communities of believers as well.” This is what my priest said. From what I’ve heard from my deacon, he has told people with the same question you to ask God to reveal himself to you. To quote my priest yet again “Laser focus on God and ask him to reveal himself to you” and pray for this every day until you have an answer. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” “Matthew 6:33
>>50817792>>50819577“You will be tempted to doubt; if God reveals himself to you; you should expect to doubt. Of course, the Pharisees doubted immediately even though Jesus did miracles in-front of them. Even the disciples who where before Jesus at all times; they doubted. They just doubted at different times. They doubted when they where in the lake and the storm came up; they doubted when he went or the cross and the even forsook him thinking ‘Perhaps we where wrong’. Doubt is natural to everyone who encounters God; even when they encounter him face to face”. If you feel tempted pray “Lord I believe, help my unbelief” and “Help me to worship you”. This was overviewed by my priest and approved by him (This is actual Orthodox Anon).
God is very real. He is the 11th nugget in your 10piece meal. He is the extra refreshing sip of water on a hot day.
>>50818569>blocks your path
>>50819065I just throw that shit in a duffle bag
>>50819677Do you leave the cummerbunds in the carrier? They don't exactly fold.
Reminder: this is another intentional attempt to derail this general. Same as the times before.
>>50819693Like on the back of the carrier? Yeah. Why would I take that off?
>>50819702trannyjannies SEETHING about the Lord
>>50819713take it to /rel/
>>50819707Because they stick way the fuck out? I don't really get how you would fit them in anywhere.
>>50819713You need to try and be more subtle. Attempt to disrupt the general in a more subversive way that isnt so obvious. Like arguing about RRVs or even arguing against the need for gear. Make it look like you're actually in the general for a reason other than bullshit, and get people to react based on that.
>>50817437Take a look at the Misty Mountain ISH. If you speak German, then Ripperkon has a couple of good videos on jewtube about it.
>>50819745I mean you aren't fitting it in a small back pack, but it fits in a backpack easily.

>>50822272>How long do I have to waitThat I don’t know Anon, I was born into Christianity. >Something that could’ve been naturalIf it happens you’ll probably know, if not just ask if it was God. He has an interesting way of getting back to people. Example: My face straight up glew after a bunch of prayer and fasting (according to my Hindu friend), I’ve pressed my hand against an icon of Christ (Maybe it was the Virgin Mary with Christ) and a mild burn was healed enough to where I could continue my work, the priests son coming up to me and talking about confession and the way to do it if it’s something that’s so extreme you feel embarrassed to talk to the priest about (but won’t get you denied communion), when someone’s child died and we where getting a painting for them, and I oddly enough asked God to decide with 5 coin flips believing “If he cares about this answer; he will intervene” and it was the same for all 5 (3.125% chance of happening), and when I was concerned about if I would even worship God if I failed, I ended up failing the exam and it was fascinating; as I did and was genuinely excited I messed up a job exam with actual consequencesIt all seems circumstantial, but I’d imagine it all pieces together. This stuff all happened within sub 24 hours (with exception to the face glowing) from the time it was asked until I got the answer. That doesn’t mean God will get back to you that way; but it means is God will get back to you and you’ll know when it’s him
>>50822605>mild burn was healedI got a fucked up back and hip Dear Jesus, pls help.
>>50822605What do I do? As a non christian, how do I pray? Do I just ask him, or is there something special I have to do?
>>50822272>>50822605I forgot to add, if you aren’t sure, ask. Then once you have the answer, proceed as stated in >>50819583There’s nothing wrong with verifying if this is God if you truly aren’t sure; all I would encourage is to search your heart to make sure you’re not sure; rather then you want to be not sure. I’ve done it before; I’m doing extreme levels of projection.I’ve heard from others to go to the liturgy (Sunday service or the Orthodox Church) or go to whenever the astronomically long stuff is (Matins plus Liturgy or whenever the 3 hour+ service is). I’m not saying you have to do that, but I am saying that’s what I’ve heard
>>50822650Are you saying this jokingly or do you genuinely want help from Christ? If so, I’ll effort post. If not let me know; I have things I need to do. Your relationship with Christ is more important than anything I have going on; but if you don’t want one that’s okay too. No judgment here, just please be honest>>50822662Just pray friend. You can also read a bible if you want, go to an Orthodox Church service, etc. It’s genuinely your call. But really focus and look for God and pray, and he will reveal himself to you. You don’t need a special prayer, but I will rejoice-fully write one for you if you want me to. Remember; prayer is a direct access point to God; I would advise you to pray as often and as much as possible
>>50822705little a little bI can clearly recall moments from my childhood where my prayers were answered, maybe not directly but in a way that made me feel like something bigger than me made that outcome the way it was.
>>50817463Sorry for taking such a long time; I was busy and wanted to make sure I included I good response to you fren>Say something useful or stay quietGood wording, randomly talking for the sake of it can lead to gossip, which leads to greater issues>Will eat to his own detrimentFascinating. These are good words for people who are struggling with weight, I’ve always found it fascinating to watch people who will eat until they can no longer walk. Unironically I wish self proclaiming pagans followed this advice; they’d be in a better physical state and it would lead to themselves having a better life
>>50822754>proclaiming pagansI WANNA BE DIFFERENT BECAUSE ANCESTORS AND SHIT Did you know that if you “practice” the “wrong” pagan religion you are racist and appropriating culture or whatever. What did God say about witchcraft again?
>>50817463>>50822754Forgot to mention, I can see how this would be written by someone well traveled. Is there witness (including cultural) testimony of Odin existing as an actual person? Cultural counts as well; so the unanimous cultural opinion “he walked the earth and went here” is absolutely a witness account
>>50822705Does any bible work? I have a pocket sized one I got from when they were handing them out on campus.There is a Orthodox Church right across the street from me, but Im really shy and dont really know how to take to other people. Im the anon from the previous thread with bad social anxiety >I will rejoice-fully write one for youI really appreciate it! but, you dont have to. I will try what you suggested.
>>50822783I’m not saying I agree with paganism in the religious regard, what I’m saying is that I wish they would keep to their religious tenants. Example: If a Buddhist monk was a murderer I would say “I wish he kept to his religious tenants”. It’s not stating I believe their faith is correct all together, it means there is a good (sometimes universal) principle.In Christianity gluttony is a sin. In Norse Paganism gluttony is frowned upon (I’m not sure if it’s a sin).>Wants to be differentPaganbro was born a Catholic and bounced between varying forms of Protestantism, see >>50817970>You’re racist and appropriating cultureAnd? Wicca isn’t representative of paganism, it’s representative of bisexual girls, many having parental issues. He’s not Wiccan, he’s trying to reconstruct the old pagan beliefs (or so I’d imagine).>What did God say about witchcraftIt sometimes works but don’t do it. Or are you going to invoke the OT where they’re out to death?
>>50822859Give me one second, I’ll go to the previous thread to check what you said if I can find it.What kind of church is it if you don’t mind me asking?
>>50822859I couldn’t find your post :(>Does any bible workThey’re not 100% accurate as they all have varying levels of Protestantisms in interpretation (there’s no 1:1 translations in a language, so you might need to use doctrine when translating) for the common translations. I’d say NKJV is your best friend.>I am worried about messing upYou’ll be fine. If nlyoure that concerned, go to the next closest one. I’m not saying you’ll mess up or be judged, but if you are that concerned about your nervousness go to a church that’s further away for your first few services. I’m not saying you will do anything bad, but if it would put you at ease go to a church that’s slightly further away. If you do mess up, keep going. No one will think any less of you >How to talk to new peopleGet on Chatroulette, omegle, or ome or just try to start convos. It’ll get better with time. Watch out though, people masturbate on those s websites

>>50822991Glue tastes good.
>>50822927>>50822882No worries fren.>what kind of churchOrthodox ChristianityI think Ill try that. The second closest is a Greek Orthodox, and Im not greek, so I dont know is those churches are more ethnically/culturally based, but, I will keep searching. Thank you for your guidance!
>>50823058Glad to do what I can :DI mean is it OCA, Greek, etc. that’s by you?ROCOR is unanimously based, the Greek archdiocese is extremely cringe, they shut down for COVID. I wouldn’t go there unless it’s required
>>50823058What I mean is Greek bishops in America aren’t based, Greek bishops in Greece (except the Patriarch) I believe are based. Keep that in mind, Greek churches are known for being liberal. Go there to socialize and see how things work, but don’t get your hopes up you’ll meet people like you

Some of them are Über based>How are the Greeks liberalThey chucked their parishioners under the bus by closing down church for COVID and the Arch Diocese (the most senior Greek bishop of North America) decided to come out in public and say “there is no religious exemptions for the vaccine”, which is blatantly wrong. I’ll send you the link Here is the actual religious exemption https://news.gab.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Vaccine-Exemption-Full-Military-.docAfter the shutdown and then the Greek arch diocese deciding to cancel everyone’s religious accommodations (he has no authority to do this), I wouldn’t go there unless I absolutely had to. Here’s another one https://orthodoxreflections.com/did-a-greek-archbishop-march-to-destroy-icons/Now, this garbage is done by Archbishop Elpidophoros and no bishop is above another in power. Elpidophoros is the one doing this hot garbage, I’m not sure about the rest of the country. I could be jumping the gun a bit here however
I literally can't decide myself on a plate carrier. I like the ESSTAC Daedon and the Agilite K19 though.
>>50823147Hows that stock? I haven't seen anyone use on here.
>>50823287It's decidedly meh. The adjustment is wierd and it's hard to fold. It also can't fire when folded, but it's $150 less than a PT-5 so it's what I went with.
>>50823323Different AnonWhy not get an adjuster to make it food left if possible?
Welp, one more post until “Fresh bread” with whichever shill decides to post next
>>50823465As far as I know those don't exist. The ASPAK stocks have almost no aftermarket and nobody ever talks about them.
>>50823323Thats unfortunate, I hope it works well for you anon.
>>50823253What specifically do you like about those? They're not the most popular so it would be interesting to have someone actually get one.
>>50823476That sucks frenIt could be worst, you could have a VZ2008…. Or be Canadian
>>50823476>>50823549It's not a huge deal, I'll just use it until something breaks or I hit the lotto and can afford the zenitco stock.

>>50823549I like VZ's.
>>50823540Someone a while back got one of the esstacs and complained about it. I'm not sure what possessed him to buy it in the first place. Esstac makes great mag pouches but their plate carrier and belt look like shit.
>>50823628There’s no aftermarket availability
>>50823540Dunno for the ESSTAC, but the Agilite looks great and got good track record.What is the "most popular" btw ?

>>50823928No idea RE: Vertx. I got a few pairs of Beyond's K5 Makers pants on sale and they have been pretty comfy and resilient hiking/carbine course/yardwork/general purpose beater pants. Dry out relatively quick, don't chafe, don't impede movement much thanks to the stretchy crotch stuff, work well with a thermal next-to-skin layer and/or an outer rain layer.
>>50823928I unironically use boyscout pants I used while I was a boyscoutCheap>Less then $20 on ebaySimple and useful>two large cargo pockets on the side>two regular pocketsDurableAnd they look good with RG.
