What's your loadout for when shit hits the fan page 5

Bandoliers are perfectly fine for storing ammunition. Magazines don’t stay loaded, and having a bag full of ammunition is sometimes harder than having a bandolier. Though, you obviously did mess up on the cartridge, haha.

A lot of people here are putting kevlar vests and rifle plates in their loadouts. The shelf life of these things are not very good, the kevlar vests typically last a very short time when being used on a daily basis.

And Christ almighty to the idiots putting more than one long gun on their person. There’s a reason why nobody in the military does it; it’s hard to carry that much weight, switch your weapons, carry substantial ammunition for both, as well as maintain both.

why do you have belt-fed ammo when you’re using an AK-47

I couldn’t tell which ammo cartridge I had to use.

Then you shouldn’t be using a gun.

I lived there for 8 months. It was 25% me taking pictures, 50% me working in 2 trailers put together, and another 25% outside of the wire.

As I said to John, I had no intention of wearing that thing around everywhere. It was meant to be left in camp with most of that other stuff.

Then it would serve no purpose. A rifle plate stops 1-2 rounds and then it is compromised. There is no use having one if it is just going to sit at your camp. Kevlar’s primary function is to stop penetration, not so much force. This makes it great for shrapnel and small calibers, but you will feel the full amount of force.

I live in the US. My independent freedom allows me to use a gun.

It serves plenty of purpose if I go out and intend the extra protection for whatever reason I may need it.

Doubt. I mean that I’ve been in shitty countries for years.

I was on one of the best bases in Afghanistan. FOB Wilson, Kandahar Provence. Their chefs cooked up crab legs for our company when we arrived. They cooked up crab legs when engineer companies helped dig an irrigation ditch. Shit, they cooked up crab legs when they got bored.

My CHU had air conditioning, bunk buddies, lighting, internet (that was actually over most of the base), and other god-given things.

You never even used a gun in real life.

And I’m sure you haven’t used a grenade or a tazer. I doubt it’d be hard for me to learn, especially in the event of a situation like this

Taking out the pin and throwing a grenade is easier than shooting someone yards away while dealing with the recoil.
