Speaking as a super-secret, double-ought undercover agent trained in all of the mystic and deadly martial arts [ my entire body is a lethal weapon], I often find it useful to dress in my combat gear at the shooting range for those occassions when an impending super-secret-double-ought mission demands a quick review of my 'essential martial equipments' [ sorry gents, that's as much as I can say about my essential martial equipments, were I to tell you any more I'd have to kill you.... ].

Actually, it is preferrable for rifleman to have a very accurate rifle in semi auto

We have SAWs, M240's, M2s, Mk19s for full auto

We're actually a Vietnam reenacting group, but many of us have other unique impressions that we like to use from time to time.

Check out www.myspace.com/AaronHorrocks and look at the latest group of photos I uploaded called "Vietnam Deployment" or something to that effect. I think you'll need to change your shorts after that!

Also, put in a friend request to "Airsoft Reenactors Group" www.myspace.com/AirsoftReenactorsGroup and you'll be kept up to date on our events and such.

Best line in the thread. Now how you keep coming up with the imagery, like the windsocks, is notable.

+1. I have been noticing this a bit more on CGN. Lot more judgmental tone in some threads, which is not sarcasm - which we all do from time to time, but some kind of "higher pillar" snobbery is itching in.

The original AR-15 made by Armalite in Hollywood CA was select fire which was adopted by the military and designated the M-16 which later became the M4.

No **** you can't substitute skills with tactical gear. Who said that you could in this thread?

The "sound familiar?" point I was making was that your mentality is shared with notable gun control supporters like Gen. Wesley Clark who support a ban on so-called "Assault Weapons" by saying things like, "If you want to shoot an assault weapon, join the military." with no regard to the second amendment. Yanno? That silly thing called the constitution that he has taken an oath to protect, preserve and defend?

So again, if you are indeed a supporter of the second amendment I fail to see why you'd make such elitist comments and admonish someone for acquiring and learning to use gear on par with the military and most definitely a militia.

Peace. (Through superior firepower)

Actually, I wasn't bringing in any politics here... The point is that many people are trying to become military proficient using tacticool gear or larger caliber instead of gaining proper skills.

I like to wear my butt-less chaps to the range with nothing underneath. People look at me funny but nobody has shot at me yet.

What do you consider combat attire? Like tact vest with 73 pockets with a Kevlar helmet, gloves with reinforced knuckles and sand goggles?

Some times i sport a pair of digi camo pants, but thats as far as my tact gear goes while at the range.

Open-carrying during SHTF is just as likely to draw unwanted engagements from the LEO and .mil guys.

BUT, I'd say that a guy tac'd out is less likely to be thought of as a common criminal than a guy wearing a baggy T-shirt and low-rider baggy jeans running down the street with a gun in hand. I'd rather the LEOs stop and wonder if I'm a friendly and try to contact/ID me than make assumptions that I'm an armed looter and start shooting.

Case in point: a couple of days ago, I passed through some sort of LEO action on Santa Monica Blvd. just west of Beverly Hills. There were cops dressed in khaki pants and polo shirts with black chest rigs and thigh rigs strapped on. There were no obvious SWAT team markings on their vests, but you could tell they were LEO because they intermingled freely with uniformed patrolmen. These guys all tac'd out looked no different than regular civilians at the range wearing khakis, polo shirts, and tac gear, including myself when I take tac courses.

So if I were dressed like that running down the street with a long gun in SHTF, chances are VERY HIGH that another LEO would initially assume that I'm also LEO. And hell, I'd be happy to work with them in protecting my neighborhood, so if they hailed me for help, I'd do exactly that.

Exactly, i dont want to end up as an "accident" or a "statistic". Being shot for the wrong reason by a inexperienced cop with high blood pressure would suck.

Depending on the degree of S hitting the fan, you would be better off flying under the radar.

That means civilian attire and concealed carry. Now if its a whole fan fulla S, then in the hills all tactacooled out would be the way to go.

You are not gonna catch me all BDU'd out with my M4gery and 300 rounds in my chest rig walking down the street to get some micky D's.

That means civilian attire and concealed carry. Now if its a whole fan fulla S, then in the hills all tactacooled out would be the way to go.

You are not gonna catch me all BDU'd out with my M4gery and 300 rounds in my chest rig walking down the street to get some micky D's.

LOL--yeah, I agree. Dress like a 'fugee and carry concealed for the "regular" SHTF like Hurricane Katrina, and tac all out for the Apocalypse.

To some people that were asking about my definition of combat attire;
Carbon fiber knuckled gloves, tac vest/rig, goggles etc

But the baggy ACU wearing t-shirt guy who approaches the bench during ceasefire numerous times is a little bit more of a concern to me.

This has turned into a great thread btw good contributions by all.

I care less about what people wear to the range and more about which direction their rounds are traveling.

Just the idea of someone operating a deadly weapon while pounding stimulants on top of physical exertion on an empty stomach isnt the most settling image.

I understand the point of it, but someone not knowing exactly why you are doing it may freak them out alittle.

True, but who are you going to be paying more attention too?

The guy wearing blue jeans and a tee shirt

or

The guy in cammie's doing pushups and wind sprints between shotgunning 40oz speed stacks
