Chest Rigs

I contacted a friend of mine about a chest rig he used in a Magpul training course he took...he sent me the website of where he got his. I took a look at it and was pretty impressed. They very good ones, that are pretty expensive, but also some lesser capacity ones without all the bells and whistles. I thought I would send to you all...seems like quality stuff. Once I order one, I will let you know more.

that holds my twelve spare mags and it has two utility pouches. I have quite a few tactical tailor chest rigs with MOLLE loops on them, but I only have the large cargo pouches for those, so most are stored, and one has my LZ marking kit in it.

Thanks

Tactical Tailor looks like a good sight, but I do like the chest rigs on the other site...the Blackhawk, they like good quality and now I have two recommendations....thanks again. My buddy told me that one thing he wished he did was buy one that carried less magazines, he said during his course that trying to quickly pull one out of a pouch that had two frequently resulted in the seond one coming out or at least partially. He recommended the 3 or 4 magazine single pouches. But, in your case, you may need more storage capacity...so I guess a configurable one is a good option. I also like the split rigs, but of course they are the most expensive.

is to find the right one for you. I saw a lot of people on my deployments who had those cool looking zip-up tactical vests with the mag pouches on one side, and the holster on the other, or mags and 40mm pouches, or whatever else, and a lot of people either didn't have other essentials (marking pouch, Gerber pouch, dip can pouch), or they had a bunch f other crap on their belts, where it's hard to access when wearing an IBA. I always bought aftermarket individual pouches to put right on my IBA so I could rearrange my gear placement however I saw fit, based on the mission or my level of dissatisfaction with my current placement (I've spent A LOT of money on cool guy gear). Back here in the states, My chest rig only needs to support my M4, and I use the two side pouches to hold a trauma kit, a can of OC spray, a GPS, a radio, and a handheld flashlight. I'm not likely to need anything else, and any other little items like my sidearm and spare mags for that can go on my belt, because I have a level 3A vest to go with it instead of an IBA. As far as more mags coming out than you want, it can be a problem. I say spend the cash (ten bucks for a three pack) and get the rubber mag-pulls. I know it looks more "old-school) to throw a 550 cord loop through the bottom of the floorplate, but the magpulls keep the mags from slapping together and pulling them out of the pouch is easy. I know speed reloads can be accomplished with a rifle, but it's awfully difficult and I'm more a fan of firing a bunch of rounds and reloading prior to any movement with a rifle. I don't worry about the "tactical reload", i just let the partial mag hit the ground, get the rifle back up, then pick up the partial. This is where a dump pouch comes in real handy, by the way. Alright, enough from this online rambo and gunshop commando. Go forth and conquer, you overpaid frickin civilian.

Mr Runawaygun 762

Before I retired I worked in a
machineshop that let us make personal
things like wheel adaptors etc.
I made a clamp that has a rod&reel
crank and clamps on the trigger guard
of my Marlin 22 rifle. He He I can spray
some lead.
It has a tube mag so I made some tubes
out of stainless and cut them to length
of 17 shells with a stoper on each end.
I can reload in 5 seconds or less. I
can carry several in an arrow quiver lol

It's legal because it comes under the
Gatlinggun law which means I pull the
trigger every time it fires.

You were talking about speed loading a
rifle made me want to tell you what I have

You and Pkato can talk about that all day and were gona listen. I'd continue with how your the real deal and stuff, but i know how you get all sentimental and emotional so i'll control the urge.

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

My first five years in were as an infantryman in Ft Campbell, with the 101st Abn Div, and I've had NCOs ranging from a former Delta operator to a guy who is in the book Blackhawk Down (not the movie, he was a CSAR guy who got hit). I've been blessed with being trained by some amazing people, and as most people know, it's always the first few years that really make you who you will be, and even though I'm a fat, stumpy legged MP, every time I conduct any kind of training or prepare for a mission, I can hear SFC Houston tell me I better be damned sure where every one of my rounds go. Of course, I also hear him threaten to wrap me around the pullup bars outside during a Class-A inspection, too. That man still terrifies me.

Trained by the best

I once had a DI named Abraham Brownfield
He reminds me of the DI in "Officer and
a Gentleman"
He was about 6ft 7 black as road tar and
tough as nails but the SOB knew what he
was doing and tried to train us as to
save our lives.

Got it...good advice

I will take it to heart...let you know what I decide...but since you think I am overpaid, maybe I just go buy 3 of them so I can cover all bases...haha.
