In the army patrolling with a full load out was standard.

Full load for the last 40 years or so (my entire 28) was 210 rounds. (7 x 30 rd mags) NOT 500 of one caliber, plus 1,000 of another.

Also, even if you did have your pack with sustainment load... it wasn't a pack AND a large duffle bag. It was an ALICE (med or lge) or a MOLLE, or ILBE if a Marine... but you don't patrol with no dufflebag in one hand, and a weapon in the other, plus the pack, plus 3 times normal ammo load...


In Iraq in 04-05 we had double issue of ammo. That was heavy enough that a lot of guys left the second load in a vehicle. I got SAW pouches, and had 6 per side on my body armor, 1 in the gun, and 1 in a pouch on the stock.

Me: 6' 1" 230 (solid muscle) mid 40s.
PFC 5' 10" 165 (skinny, but fit) mid 20s.

Me: "Throw my vest in the truck, I'll be right back."

PFC: "Sure thing Sarge." HOWEVER... 5 seconds later... "Holy ****, this thing is heavy."

Nice to see everybody is prepared. We were an average family hit by a hurricane. We couldn’t use the back yard. It was a pile of broken jungle. Hanging trees. Snakes. Back door was unusable. House was 100 degrees. As far as my stuff that got stole, oh well. A grill, some chairs. You only have water for so long. Then you have to go look for it. I supported an elderly lady next door and her infant grandchild. What’s ****ed up is one night I ran into two guys in my driveway. Pitch black dog barked and I saw his cigarette. They kept saying “can I come over there” “I’m coming over there” ..... homos. Freaken homos wanting bunny mans crippled fat butt. That ain’t happening. I let the husky go and she chased them down the street. But I’ll be dammed if they didn’t come back. Next time I had two dogs and a .357. Dog had them dancen in the middle of the street. And I kindly asked them not to come back.
The whole storm/event made me evaluate our vulnerability. We had two weeks of food and water but we ended up supporting others. Others didn’t have ****. We survived. But in a big shtf? Mmmm .

Too much for anyone with a brain that is going out on a patrol. Is of the throw it in/on. Might need that kitchen sink.

They have lighter plates these days. Oh, and I designated my son as the ammo-mule; he's too young, proud, and stupid to realize how heavy all that crap is. I just tell him he's a wussy, and he'll carry my spare ammo to prove his point and help prove my older wisdon

Do you have any opinions or experience with LMTs version of the AR10? It is supposedly used by several militaries (Britain, NZ, etc). How would you say it stacks up to a Scar-H?
