    I didnt have a lot of pics of me in my DCUs from overseas so I decided to pose with my Stag Arms 5.56, my Polish Tantal rifle and my Browning HP.

    Stag Arms M16A3-gery (with incorrectly installed tactical sling :p I'm too lazy to fix)




    Polish Tantal Rifle



    Browning HP


    thanks to my friend james for photoshopping out holes in my pants :uhoh:

    Nice pics Commissar. So what did you do to the handguard on the Tantal, it has a better finish than the bakelites they come with? What do you think of the right side folding stock?

    You so tactical!
    What did the neighbors think of you running around in the yard with your EBR's? You're lucky they didn't call swat!

    it's duracoat- the stuff is awesome!

    done well as far as folding stocks go IMO. you can reach the safety and the bolt handle with the stock folded. The spring loaded catch is a little sticky and takes some work to get used to though.

    ermm.. not my backyard :cool:

    hmm....I figured on a Polish tantal, the barrel would be pointed the other way. :)

    Hey Commissar, great pics. But when did flyboys get to wear gear like that ?

    Coarse I've been out almost fifty years so I MAY be a little bit behind times. :)

    USAF - 1954-58

    hehe- one of the best things about it is I get to make lame jokes like that all the time :cool:

    The idea now is close aerospace support. When we deploy we go deploy we support army/navy/marines and sometimes that means into hotzones. We still dont handle weapons nearly as much as the other services but we still need equipment to keep us safe in warzones.

    The tac vest is mine though ;) I didnt carry enough ammo to need it overseas- I just used my cargo pocket.

    Commissar, how is that vest? I've been thinking of buying one myself. Where did you buy it from, if you don't mind my asking. Thanks.

    Generally, you won't find pilots wearing DCUs and K-pots while deployed, but I was issued it when I deployed for OIF.

    I also wore (the helmet, at least) the first night of 'Shock and Awe' in the bomb shelter when a SCUD was shot at my base.

    Other than that, it sat on my locker the duration of my deployment.

    THIS is tacti-cool gear for flyers these days:

    Hacker15E - How is Mother Moody's Rest Home For Weary Airmen these days ?

    I was there in 57-58 as a radar repair tech on F89D's and F86D's. Hopefully life
    in Valdosta is somewhat improved since I was there. Got my release from
    active duty there. Always thought of it as a great place to be FROM. :)

    I am assuming from your user name that you are flying F15E's these days.

    Valdosta is much advanced from when you were here last...it's a full-on college town and has plenty to offer. It's by far the best 'small southern town' I've ever lived in.

    I'm actually flying T-38s currently, but 'by trade' I'm a F-15E pilot. In another year, after a 3-year-stint as an instructor, I'll be back to flying Strike Eagles.

    Mandatory thread content: The rescue guys here at Moody (the HH-60 drivers and Pararsecue guys) wear their DCUs full time, even at home station! Us guys who are on the training side of the house have to make do with regular BDUs and green flight suits.

    They must've changed the rules...

    For more years than I care to remember, we weren't even supposed to go shopping or visit sit-down restaurants in our BDU's, flight suits, or DCU's. Then recently, Air Staff posts an edict that used uniform items should be destroyed or turned in to Clothing Sales and other collection points to prevent them from being misused.

    Heck, I don't wear my nomex, either green or tan, any more than I have to, especially off-duty, and now we have a Senior Airman who's fashion modeling on purpose, with base of assignment and rank plainly visible for download Internet-wide. :scrutiny:

    (It's ok, I joined the Air Force 20 years ago just to pick up chicks, too. :D )

    Cool! I was born on base at Moody. Both parents were Air Force. Dad played with bombs, Mom played with radar equipment.

    Hacker - Thanks for the info. Valdosta was a college town back then, as well,
    but life could get a little complicated for boys from out West. Got denied service
    in a coffee shop once because somebody noticed the car we were in had New York plates.
    Just part of life back then. Only comfee places in town were the VFW and American Legion.

    I don't have a real appreciation for flying those planes, most of us didn't think
    it would be safe in the birds we worked on. :D

    Good luck,
