  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hello. I have been told from many sources to avoid military camo at all costs as it will make you stick out like a sore thumb. Grey man is a great idea. But its use is rather limited compared to what most people think. Once everyone has bugged out and **** has hit the fan and the immediate chaos...

    How well does desert camo work in the woods? There are some three day desert camo assault packs on ebay. But, before I buy, how well does desert camo work in the woods? Maybe this would be a good topic for an article?

    I just wanted some advice on a matter. Sometimes the little details are what gives us fits. After the conversation has run its course, the mods can feel free to delete such a trivial and asinine post. :D: What do you guys think about the colored or camo stocks for AR's, Ak's SKS's etc.? I'm...

    I put together a tutorial on "How to camouflage your AR15". I not only like the look but it requires less external cleaning and it offers practical camouflage for hunting. Many people have wondered how I added the fish scale look so I made this video. 1. Clean your rifle with...

    I made a mod-top today in about 3 hours. I tool a BDU jacket and unsewed the bottom pockets. I then hot glued them to the shoulders of the jacket (no patches) and hotglued sections of Velcro so that its similar to the modern ACU. Wasn't much work, most of it was planning. It has Velcro for...

    I got my dpms LR308 in at the gun store brought it home. I thought it needed to play dress up so I painted it my favorite camo scheme. Started with a base of tan, then I put large splotches of od green, then a loam green inside and extending the borders of the od and then added an accent of...

    Krylon Camo Job, on my AR. Removed the scope, it will be painted later. First time ever, dont be too critical. I used several large maple leaves to create the pattern, since I am in Vermont.

    Is any one aware of a company the produces a woodland camo baclava or face mask that reverses to a winter or white side. All the can find is Woodland/Black, very disappointing.

    1. Find a tough and cheap mosquito netting. 2. spray paint base camo colors. dye might be less odorous. 3. Buy synthetic yarn. (hydrophobic) 4. Thread yarn with a big ass needle (ask your mama). weave in and out, pull lots of slack and leave some slack in between. Cut in between and tie both...

    So I've been wearing my 6'8", 200+ lb husband's old hunting clothes for the last 5 years, and I'm ready to upgrade. Trust me, climbing into a tree stand feeling like the stay-puffed marshmallow woman isn't the most secure feeling.:xeye: I need to find a good set of bibs and a coat (Realtree...
  14. Urban Survival
    What are people's thoughts about using a sort of camoflague in urban areas. I'm not talking about blending in with a crowd, im talking about physically blending in with your environment. What are some practical ways to blend in with one's surroundings? I'd personally try to avoid daylight and...
  15. Non-Lethal Weapons & Self Defense
    I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with the various patterns of camo available, just wondering what everyone's preferred types are and why? Granted, it should be best for your situation/location. I'm opting to go with the new A-TACS FG for the very green coniferous forests of Oregon. ACU/old...

    What role does it play in SHTF? Deception is used regularly in many areas ranging from camo to deceive the eye, to center peel maneuvers to give the appearance of greater force strength, to hidden food/ammo/weapon caches. So what other roles does it play in SHTF? For example, hanging police...
  19. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    After seeing alot of peoples gear....why is that when camo comes up, that most everybody gets military camo? I see no love for any of the RealTree/Mossy Oak type stuff. This is coming strictly from a hunters POV. Whats the advantage of milspec camo over hunting camo?
  20. Urban Survival
    Why are so many people trying so hard to blend in a SHTF urban scenario? I do agree that not sticking out is a valuable thing but many people are taking this too far and in the wrong direction. They are asking questions like which is best denim, black, or camo. Or things like I live...
