Light is Might in the Fight and that’s Right. http://varifleman.wordpress.com/2011/01 ... ats-right/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

A light setup for bugging out in a bug-outable situation requiring the overt carrying of a rifle. Yes, it is far far more likely for a bug out scenario to occur that would require some discretion and a well concealed pistol (ie natural disaster, fire, storm a-coming, etc) but if needed, I've pieced together this minuteman rig. Its a real light and handy kit.

- AR-15 rifle: PSA chrome lined 4150 upper, Spikes tactical lower, Eotech 552, Streamlight TLR-1s, Blackhawk two point. Along with 5 30rd Pmags.
- Level IIa soft armor (issued to me by my agency but not worn in picture).
- G23 with a 13 rounder in the gun and a 15 round G22 mag as backup. In a SERPA.
- Ka Bar large TDI fixed blade, but I assume this would be used far more for chores than for actual hand to hand fighting. In fact, I hope to never have to use any of these weapons in anger, but especially that knife. Knife v. knife = I get cut more than likely.
- Surefire G2-OD with Malkoff M60LF dropin.
- Tactical Tailor MAV two piece with 5.11 pouches.
- old tiger stripe boonie hat. a well worn, durable hat.
- black poly/cotton t shirt
- Propper tac pants.
- Mechanix gloves. A cheaper alternative to tactical whiz-bang gloves.
- Camelbak backpack without the water bladder and loaded with a few essential items. I like nalgenes instead for hydration.
- 5.11 6" boots. Pretty comfy and broken in.
- Slightly mean face (Issued).
- tactical attack kitty guarding my six.

These were taken during one of my buddies' shooting weekends. The vest is a Condor "El Cheapo" MOLLE LBV with a triple M4 shingle loaded with 30 round Troy Battle Mags. Mounted on top of the shingle is a Taurus Judge Ultralite in a SERPA crossdraw with a MOLLE mounting plate. On the right is a custom built IFAK/blowout kit. There is also a 20 round shotgun pouch and a dual pistol mag pouch. A 100oz Camelback is on the rear.

The carbine is a Stag Arms M4 with an EOTech 512, Surefire G2, TAPCO front and rear grips, and Firefield aluminum quad rail. My dropleg is an M12 with extender, carrying any of a dozen sidearms, however for this weekend, I was alternating between a Daly 1911 government, a Glock 22, and a Taurus 92AF. On the left leg is a 21st Century kaBar in a Blackhawk Omega dropleg sheath. The tac light is a Lenovo Red Line LED (which runs on AA batteries! Score!)

The pants are Wrangler cargos with a Blackhawk Bailout Belt, and the boots (not visible) are 5.11.


Image
This is my Bugout Bag in action during our third annual Bugout Weekend.

The bag is a USGI MOLLE Rifleman pack, carrying a full 72 hour kit. The sidearm is a Glock 22 mounted in a MOLLE woodland flap holster on the pack's belt. Also pictured is a Gerber Gator machete, and a walking stick.

I'm wearing 5.11 taclite pants, quick dry polo, and a 5.11 tactical fleece.

And lastly, a quick work picture to prove I'm not a Mall Ninja!

Ack! Trigger discipline, live by it so that someone else doesn't die because of it!

Or, to put it a different way, keep your booger-picker off the bang switch unless you're actively shooting!!

Not here. It's a show and tell thread. PM your high-speed advice if you feel it's necessary.

Now. In keeping with the rules of this thread...a moto-pic from my bachelor party :mrgreen:

Didn't realize that qualified as high-speed advice... I apologize for all the delicate sensibilities that I bruised; I was just merely trying to pass on a little education. That is what we do at ZS, isn't it?

Anyway, so I don't upset anyone else, here's a picture of me shooting Justin Bieber as a peace offering.

Good advice, and I'm sure you didn't hurt Omega's feelings. This just isn't the place for it. Pic thread, that's what PM's for.

I just want to thank all the brave posters on this thread. After spending a very amused evening lurking on this thread I decided to come back to Zombie Squad after a hiatus.


And after thorough review:

Thanks to crypto for his courageous.... over sharing. Or is it our braveness for looking?
http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopi ... &start=504

Props to TerryGecko for his concerted representation of the urban demo.
http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopi ... 6#p1072127

And honorable mention to Carl M Neit for best use of animal support.
http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopi ... 2#p2062233

Best repost goes to BullOnParade for the evikes movie
http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopi ... 6#p2143451



Thanks guys. Laughed too many times to explain to my wife.

From my most recent trip in the East Mojave that I added to my blog. I am using an older but very nice PRC-68B (30 - 90 MHz) to keep in touch with our base camp on the other side of a nearby hill. I was also trying out a new sage green Primaloft vest from the military's "Happy Suit" ensemble.
