Just call me Possumabilly


May 9, 2003, 01:26 PM

We're all familier (and some may be jealous) of our own uber-tactical Skunkabilly.

Some of you may or may not be aware of the less fortunate such as myself that have no carbon fiber, no camel back, no titanium, not one stich of elephant skin and have no polymer guns. Heck, I don't even know what Royal Robbins pants are....

But is that any reason we can't be tactical? Maybe since Skunky is currently living in an urban enviroment I can set the precedent for tactical in a more rural enviroment.

So I submit the following series of Photos for your consideration, can I be Possumabilly now?


Front view. Note the .45-70 rounds prominently placed on the belly, doubles as a plate to stop weak, little 9mm rounds from hitting vitals.

Tactical blue Levis, an abundance of brown cowhide, shirt from Wal-Mart.

Snuff can if front shirt pocket. Overstuffed Billfold in Back right pocket. Couple of pens in other shirt pocket. Gimme ballcap from local feedstore. New Balance Tennis shoes for stealth. Keys, change, extra .45 rounds, another folding knife in front pocket.

SO is this the ultimate in Rural Tacticality or just a guy with too much time on his hands that ought to be forced to surrender his digital camera?

You make the call.

Where's the Marlin Redneck Assault Rifle with the scout mounted Eotech, and the smokeless cigarettes for decreased visual signature suited for night ops? :D

Careful with the name, the lysdexic folks here who call me 'Skunkability' may end up calling you 'Possibility'... :uhoh:

You need to change your username to...

Gun Smoke. :p

:D :D :D Be prepared to be sued by Skunk for un-authourized use of the word "Tactical" and the afore mentioned words' variants! :D :D :D

Someone should slip you some ex-lax after you get all that crap on.

May 9, 2003, 02:31 PM
That's.... scary. :D

That was funny Smoke! Guess I'll have to get out my dino-tactical gear for some pics. :)

Answer: No. Not even close.

May 9, 2003, 04:17 PM
At least I have an excuse to put all that stuff on, I have to keep from getting carried away by the wind....

Skunk, you could save yourself a lot of money and ridicule with a Tactical Tent Stake through your foot.

May 9, 2003, 05:04 PM
Okay, this one just popped into my head... what the heck is a Skunkabilly? Is it some unholy combination of skunks and rednecks of some type? Inquiring minds wish to know. :)

Steve, not really, I don't have health insurance...but when I do get it, I'll give it a try if you can find me a carbon fiber tent stake :D

what the heck is a Skunkabilly?

I believe it's the result of when a skinny geek fancies small striped mammals and plinks around an a baaaanjoooo.

Crazy Californians. :neener:

Smoke... next time you're all loaded up, take a picture of yourself with a tactical Hawaiian shirt covering it all up. :p

Bet the untrained eye could never even tell. ;)

One more thing... the 14/45 isn't tactical until you have +2 basepads. And what's with all the stainless? Black, man... black!

May 9, 2003, 06:19 PM

That's a bit more tactical than a Texas boy aughta be! How you gonna get in an out of the saddle without getting a hernia?:D

Looks mighty fancy but leave that tactical stuff to them city boys.

Remember folks, "DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS"!

I guess with that get up there are some definite possumabilities!:D

May 9, 2003, 09:02 PM
Possumabilly doesn't have a ring to it like Skunkabilly does. How about Hillbilly?

May 9, 2003, 09:02 PM
LMAO! Smoke, that's good man. :D Skunk couldn't move if he had all that on!:D

May 9, 2003, 09:18 PM
"Ranch Management"? Is that a major at Texas Christian University? TCU? Shouldn't that stand for Tactical Combat University?

May 9, 2003, 09:31 PM
:D Snuff can in front shirt pocket for one & turkey Spam in SHTF kit! :D EPIC!

May 9, 2003, 10:51 PM
That is the greatest thing ive seen in a long time.

but like above...slip him an exlax. see how long it takes him to strip that off and get those pants down before he hits the porta-john out at the range :p

Ex lax.......I promise I can come out of that rig faster than I could put it on.

Skunk, I can use the extra weight myself. Tall, skinny, cowboy types need a little protection from the wind too. And Ranch Management is a major at TCU, when you spend a boatload of money at a private university in the most intensive ag program when you graduate they give you a cheap brass buckle.

10-Ring, Turkey SPAM is only suitable for penetration tests of .3x or larger rifles.

cratz2.....I think I have a hawiian shirt here somewhere.....

Min...to use Hillbilly I'd have to move to the Appalachian region.

Path....I think I can use a winch truck to lift me up on my horse, which I will have to rife because this is entirely to heavy to walk with.

I reckon I like the "Tactical Cowboy" look better than "Riot Nerd".


May 10, 2003, 07:20 PM
Riot nerd?? :confused:

May 10, 2003, 11:58 PM
since I am a Texan who's lived in California 9 years, I think I am in a unique position to judge both Skunkabilly & Possumabilly....


....I'm speechless

This song goes out to all the ones with coke bottle glasses
To all you lonely kids who were picked last in gym class
We got your back,
Are you up with the fact?
You're never gonna catch us
Get up, get up,
Cause we're fed up, fed up
Try to rise and keep your head up, head up
He's the king of the Kong,
We'll be singin the song
Bring it on, bring it on, bring it on

Riot nerd is my favorite term for the tactical ubergeek.

John, recovering riot nerd.

You better make sure that horse is a clydesdale Smoke because if it were a quarter horse it get a hernia from all that tatical equip .
