    Here is a look at my range bag and my favorite rifle. I felt i wanted an 'all in one', compact pack, grab and go backpack. The pack is a maxpedition, can't remeber the model, but it is daypack size, lots of pouche, has a good sized main pocket and a few other pockets, molle back and sides, has...

    I did a search here and didn't find any thread already here that addressed this topic. If this is in the wrong place or if another thread exists, let me know. I was looking at www.opticsplanet.com at tactical vests last night, but was wondering if anybody here has much experience with vests. I'm...

    I am considering adapting my extra Safariland ALS duty holster to molle carry on my plate carrier. Wondering if anyone has had experience carrying a pistol on molle straps, particularly with regard to weapon retention. The holster is a level II retention holster and will carry a Glock 22 with...

    This is a question for everyone no matter what type of rifle you use. I thought it might help some of us who do not own or know anything about body armor. I know there are threads out there but well,we could use a new one with fresh ideas and newer people to input on. Also might be nice to see...

    What are you using? What works best? I will be getting a glock17 or Springfield XD(M) Handgun.

    I'm all for being prepared and getting my "house in order" before the Stuff Hits The Fan. I'm trying to spend money on only the things that will be needed after "it" all happens. I've been pondering for a long time about getting chest rigs for all my calibers of ammo/guns and to be honest about...

    I want to see what everyone is packing on a 'patrol' type mission. Envision that there is some kind of SHTF/World Chaos/Rosie O'Donnell streaking naked/Obama re-elected scenario. What are you going to take with you on a patrol around your AO or scavenging for supplies. This is a lightweight...

    I searched for 4 days on a good review of a chest rig. There were very few that highlighted the things I was interested in. I purchased this rig and made a video review. It will be posted shortly.

    Anybody using a tactical vest and if so in what instances?

    I made the rookie mistake of overthinking my EOTWAWKI/SHTF combat gear. Too heavy for really practical use. So, can someone give me a real list of what you would/ would not carry if things got "oh my gosh" really bad. I'm talking real life combat in the streets bad.

    So I’m putting a couple emergency bags (think short term BOB that is with you all the time in the car/truck) for the wife and I and I started thinking I may put a 9mm with a few mags in each one. I carry (45’s) all the time so it’s not a big deal that I have a 9mm in the bag, but I can always...

    Hey everyone. I'm trying to find a good, high-quality tactical vest (LBE, MOLLE vest, etc.) for myself. The thing that I always run into when trying to find decent vests online is that they almost all say "one size fits most" which doesn't help me at all figure out whether it will fit me or...
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I want to know what everyone plans to have on them when it's time to BO. I've always gone by the principle that there is no use collecting more weapons (Ammo is an exception) or gear that you can carry, unless you are an avid collector or plan to arm family and friends in case of a SHTF...

    Does anyone have any experience with the CamelBak Delta 5 Tactical Vest? If so what are your thoughts/impression of this vest. http://www.botachtactical.com/cade5tave.html Link for reference. I really feel we need a dedicated gear section added to this forum, but this works as well.

    So my wife and I have are refining our BOB's and we've run into a little problem. We use backpack/hiking style packs to lug our gear around, and because of the way they fit, I don't think we can wear any sort of tactical vests. We both plan on using thigh holsters for our pistols, but I am...

    Got a question, I like the Berreta 92 and am looking for a good tatical holister that won't break the bank. Think I like the drop leg stlye but am wondering about a tactical vest. I need some opinions, maybe some of the milatary folks could chime in. Comfort is also something I worry about...

    hey all. my first hand gun will be in my possession next week in all likelihood. I got a Smith & Wesson M&P 40 in .40S&W. it's got a 4-someting inch barrel, medium to large framed piece as I would describe it. need a holster! :) here in lower NY, I could not get a full carry permit. I am...

    I'm interested in some more gear. I will be getting a large Alice pack for a BOB. I will also be piecing together my own AR-15 soon. :thumb: The advice I would like would be some suggestions of a LBE that I can wear with an Alice pack. I was thinking some sort of MOLLE chest LBE that I can put...

    I dont like them very much and I would rather be less restricted than with a vest. Even though it doenst restrict me a ton it feels restrictive, and I hate laying prone with one. So I am thinking about those blackhawk drop leg molle platforms. If I got 2 of them I think they would carry plenty...
