Lots of black in there, the only problem with black is that the eye is naturally attracted movement of objects, and for some reason this effect is amplified with black because it "pops" out to the eye when it moves. The effect is greatly reduced at night of course.

I just have my coyote hunting camo-"Mossy oak Brush"
Works pretty good, and it doesn't scare the Border patrol when they see me out in the boonies. If I was wearing your setup, they would probably think I was an Elite team member.

You realize of course that if SHTF and you were traveling the streets in that getup with no identifying markers (insignia, nametapes, Stars & Stripes, or Stars & Bars) anywhere to be seen... I would shoot you on the spot. Especially with your face covered up like that. Lacking identifying markers and carrying a rifle you are no more than a terrorist, and I would assume such. :rolleyes:

+1. If SHTF in a suburban/urban environment it may be better to look like everybody else than to wear camo and carry a rifle since first thing any LEO, Mil, or armed civilian will think is that you are a potential threat. Blending in with a typical suburban or urban setting may mean typical ordinary clothes.

WTH is Elite Team Fighting? Is this for real? Someone help me, because right now I'm rolling on the floor LMAO!!!!!! I'm also a little scared at the same time!:confused:

I would figure they're on Lithium, or some other med. Stay away from their recruiting depot...all mental wards, alleys on skid row, etc. ;)

I'm just saying these heroes are headed for the reception the Vietnam vets got if we are forced out of this war. The left wants them home, right, because "they support the troops" lets see how they actually treat them when this war is over.

I don't think that's true at all. I was born in 72, but when I was a young kid, I remember that Vietnam was almost a taboo subject, friends of my parents or people who worked around them that were Vets, didn't talk about Vietnam, they just wanted nothing to do with it. There was a negative connotation with being a Vet.

The attitude now is completely different. Yes many despise The War, but the troops are treated completely different, than they were back in the 60's and 70's. You never see guys getting home and being verbally assaulted or spit on or having things thrown at them for being sent to Iraq.

Vietnam almost destroyed our Military's moral till the mid 80's.

The troops serving now are treated with respect and welcomed back and honored. Something that is Polar opposite to the Vietnam Vet of the time.

From your mouth to God's ear.

I do know that when service members come into my local Starbucks in uniform they RARELY have to buy their own coffee.

I make it a point to thank them every time I see them.

TRUE STORY::

When I came home from Falljah me, my wife, and 2 other couples went to Vegas to party it up. After a few drinks they convinced me to don thy blues and we went to the club up at the Rio (cant remember the name). Anywasy, after an hour or so the bartender tells us that there is a gentleman who says he is paying fro our drinks for the night. I tell the bartender that I couldnt possibly have someone take over our tab as it was over 1200 dollars by that time. His reply: "Sir, he has a black card. I would take him up on the offer." BRING ON THE KRYSTAL!!! anyways, the guy ended up upgrading our room for 3 nights as well. Never did get to meet him but if he is watching then Thank you Sir/ Ma'am...


TRUE STORY, I WAS THERE!


that said I have been treated horribly once people have found out I was in the military too...

Just the oposite during the Vietnam Conflict. You did not tell anyone you where in the service. There would be huge demostrations out side the gates of the base I was stationed at. Signs stated that we would all be charged with War Crimes! No way would you travel on a plane, train or bus in uniform. Plus remember this was when the draft was going on! When I got out, all my uniforms went in the trash.

I said, if we let the Left RUN us out of the war in shame. I wish there were some of these young heroes running for office.

They don't. It rains too much. Seriously they were using Digi-camo before we were. It's very "European" in color schemes.
