About this blog

I have some personal and observed experience I'd like to share with others.

 

Creating a group can be overwhelming so I'm giving input that will help with the learning curve.

Gear; Plate Carriers... What am I looking at?

My goal is to guide people to make good decisions. However; I know that, for some, the learning curve is high and they still don’t know what they don’t know (and they shouldn’t be shamed for that).   In this entry I will go a bit more in depth on plate carriers. I will be using examples of different carriers to point out different abilities and functions that they have.   Lets start with the ease of ability to get in and out of a carrier, and the different ways to “shed” them

Gear: Old School vs New School

Money, weight, efficiency, and modularity – this is generally what people compare when looking at gear. Another is standardization when working in groups, but I won’t be diving deep into that one on this chat.   Money – Everyone has heard it by now “Buy once, cry once” and, in large, its true. If you invest in good gear, you have less to worry about in the long run, but those with disposable income may feel the urge to buy their way past a learning curve… which isn’t a thing. So be car

Appearances (greyman and more)

With everything going on and the general mindset of people in our community, I thought I would share my insight, knowledge, and opinions on things pertaining to appearance, security, and “standing your ground” in the commons.   First, no one is hiding from the government. They can keep track of Amish folks, you and me are not that hard to track. Being a harder target for low to midish-tier hackers and social media giants is a more obtainable goal.   There is a time and place

Why a Chestrig?

When used in conjunction with a plate carrier it will save you money because you have a dual purpose item. unclip it from the carrier & snap a harness (or compatible bag) and you're in business. most harnesses are easy enough to throw in a bag or dangle pouch, so if you need to drop weight in a crap scenario you can shed your carrier while maintaining the ability to fight. If you're up where it gets cold you can wear your carrier on the inside of your racket & throw the chest rig on
