Its back!


January 16, 2003, 12:10 AM
After many weeks of being down so I could re-organize it, my web page is back. I added about 35 new uniforms, and the loadout spread sheet can now be down loaded from the page. I have offered a few other gear nuts and pros (including some SF guys fresh back from the Stan) room on my page for their loadout lists and gear theories as well as comments on their experiances with the current issued weapons in that climate. So be on the lookout for that soon.

Also, there is a page for field gear and oddball weapons (military only please). If you have an odd item, mag, frag, mine or a proto type firearm pic, please send it to me so I can get it up there. I am also thinking of doing a collections page so people with large collections of military weapons can show their stuff. I may even put up names if you really have to have your name with the pic (mostly it is to give the liberals nightmares).

Anyway, I hope this helps someone out there figure out what they have in their closet, or helps someone load their pack. All feedback is greatly appreciated!

All feedback is greatly appreciated! Mmmmokay!

Vietnam is one word.

More textual information about each of the uniforms you show would help.

Good job! :neener:

Yeah it would help, but where would I put it?

Put the descriptions right in the table cells where the links to the pictures are. Visitors will see a category heading (e.g., "North American) with a picture table below it with the individual cells containing links to pictures (e.g., "US Vietnam flight crew suit"), and below the link, a description in much smaller text.

The code might look something like this:<td width="20%" align="center"><!--mstheme--><font face="Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica"><font color="#660000"><b><a href="North%20American/US%20Viet%20Nam%20flight%20crew%20suit.jpg">US Vietnam flight crew suit</a></b></font><!--mstheme--><font size=2><br>Introduced in 1971 by the USAF, yadda, yadda, yadda.... </font></td>

Excellent job on your website. I really like your pack, but already bought myself an Eagle Becker large.

Your packing list will prove valuable indeed.

Great site!

Great reference for when I paint my M1A stock. Thanks!

btw. You may want to move Uruguay back to So. America. ;)

Hey, what can I say? America learns geography thru the wars it has fought. I dont remember fighting one there so they are not high on my "to do" list:p Thanks for noticing and I will make sure I do that.

There's no "a" in experience.

Alot had changed in the last few months in regards to my load out.

There should be a space between the "a" and the "l", it's spelled "a lot" and is better replaced with the word "much" if writing a paper for credit.

Good work on the site.

Pvt Pyle.

Your "Mystery Camo #3" is Royal Cambodian Army, issued after 1992. Royal Cambo patch on arm verifies it.

Hey thanks for pointing that out! I wouldn't know the Cambodian royal anything if it sat on my head and wiggled. Anyone else with keen eyes see anything I should fix?

PVT Pyle - You have accumulated some nice gear, very nice gear. Listen to your CO about gear. When I was in the 101st we were deployed on a training mission and a young trooper had previously purchased a Kelty military model pack and was using it. His squad leader said he didn't notice, neither did the platoon sgt. Nice harnass, nice everything until one of the straps broke. Luckily we had some extra gear due to an injury and that was the only thing saving the trooper from an Article 15 or worse. This is not intended to be a flame, listen to your CO.

I don't know if it is a setting on my computer but I have to scroll right and left to read all the text.
Nobody else said anything so where do I change the setting?

Right click on your Desktop, click on Properties, click on Settings tab. I have a 17' monitor with the screen area set at 1024 x 768 and I dont have to scroll side to side. Use a smaller setting for a smaller screen and larger for larger screen.
Let me know if you need help.

I listen to all of the BTDT's and wont take some gear that has not been proven in combat.
