Ever dressed up in web gear, tac vests, or anything ninja like and taken pics? Well if you have, lets see em! (this one's for you, skunk)



In this series I have an airsoft AK and an airsoft USP. I have on surplus web gear, with three mag pouches, a holster and a large knife on the belt. On one shoulder strap (right) I have a folding knife clipped, on the left one I have a cell phone holder made into a pistol mag carrier.

http://thehighroad.org/attachment.php?s=&postid=647684


Now heres a question. My technique works fine for airsoft guns, but do you see any thing i'm doing wrong that would mess me up while firing real guns? I'm a newbie, forgive me. Thanks alot guys, and I can't wait to see your pics.

Oh, and by the way.. I know I have a condition two going on in the last pic, but I was actually aiming at my target. Well, that, and it's an airsoft gun.

Well, holding the rifle that high, in the first pic, yeah, you see that a lot in movies, and with an AK it won't matter much, but with a high-recoil firearm it will hurt, probably a LOT.

Speaking from experience, you don't need a haircut, you just are going to need a hat to hold your hair in place once it gets long enough. Mine's ten to twelve inches and gets in my eyes all the time...

No way! Keep the hair, I used to have my hair that long before I started losing it five years ago.

Well, holding the rifle that high, in the first pic, yeah, you see that a lot in movies, and with an AK it won't matter much, but with a high-recoil firearm it will hurt, probably a LOT.

Ha, I can't fire an AK without it smacking me in the nose every other shot. Gotta have an extended recoil pad on any I own to make the stock longer.

welts are badges of honor, you don't need no steenk'n gloves, just rub out the bruises. They look like the Brass Eagle gloves. Those plastic parts are great for breaking paint, better to go with some Dye gloves or something.

I don't see how this is at odds with responsible firearms ownership. I'm sorry if my attempt at humor and fun is at odds with YOUR idea of the forum. You might note that the person who designed the forum and brought it into existence participated in the thread. So I find your point about where this belongs to be arrogant, and more than that, simply false.

What was the point of your post anyway? Seems pretty inflammatory. Thats really all I get out of it, whatever message you might have had was lost in the disdain.

Well, I did take a pic or two...but I didn't get dressed up just for the pic...(George! Psst! GEORGE! Still got that pic of me in camo?)

Anyway, winston, when you do a combat shooting stance, be sure your elbows are locked in tightly, down toward your centerline. This will both give you more support through the skeletal support, and better let you control rapid fire.

Oh, do you mean, “play dress-up”? I used to. But then I stopped trick-or-treating, so I pretty much gave it up.

I’d wear some tactical gear when I was training, or if I was a LEO or in the military. (Hell, I have more ALICE gear, mag pouches, webbing and leather stuff than I could wear at once…that's the result of trades and "box lots"!!)

NUTSHELL: I have some tactical stuff, but you definitely won’t be finding any pictures of me wearing it!:D

OEF Vet, this was taken in a hot tropical place when I was with Recon, 3/187th, in 1990 and on the Z with 2/503rd Infantry prior to that.

Ever dressed up in web gear, tac vests, or anything ninja like and taken pics? No. I did have a pic of me dressed up like a hollwywood assassin though. My hair was wet and pulled back tight, I was wearing a black shirt, black jeans, and a black full-length coat that stopped just above the ankles of my altama boots that were shined up like polished onyx. Cant remeber the firearms I posed with though...

One day a few years ago while dressed simular to that (without the guns) a little kid asked me if I was a cop. Although I know it was stupid, I couldnt resist to say "No, I'm a mercenary." He didnt know what I was talking about, but his mother did, and they left in a hurry, while everyone in the video department was rolling in the floor.

Willard,

Welcome, fellow Rakkasan. How long were you with 3rd BDE? I was an FO with 3/320 FA from MAY 97 until OCT 02. During that time, I was attached to A and C - 1/187, A,B,C, and D - 2/187, and BDE (first as a COLT team chief and then as BDE FSNCO(Rear) during Anaconda). Never got the chance to work with the 'Iron Rakkasans' though. But, I did get the opportunities to visit such lovely places as Kosovo and Assghanistan with the BDE.

BTW, the 'has-been' line was tongue in cheek.

OEF Vet, I figured the has been remark was a joke....

I was in the 187th in 1990-January through August, when I ETS'ed. Naturally, the Fates nailing me as they do, it was days later that Iraq invaded Kuwait, and the rest is history. It was (and is, I believe) one squared away unit. Being in the Scout Platoon was a great time, too, and a great way to finish my service.

1987-1989 2/327th Infantry, before Korea.
1982-1987 76th Div USAR-DI

I'm not in a good mood after I put my gear on:mad: . It takes me 20 minutes to put that stuff on. It's hot, cumbersum, and heavy.

I was a little bored after doing Game Enforcment, so I pulled out my digital camera and decided to do some Hollywood poses. This one is my favorite since you can actually see teh Hydra-shoks through the barrel. BTW, The vest is used for Search and Rescue and the CAR-15 is just for fun and home defense. Our agency doesn't have a SWAT unit nor do we qualified with rifles/carbines.
