GEAR

Another false flag?

An idea worth pondering…

Sandy Hook also has the signs of a false flag deal as well…

Reason? “People Control” through restrictive gun laws.

Viva Amerika!

Modern Gear Systems (Part 2)

In our last installment, Modern Gear Systems (Part 1), we covered the “EDC” base system that will/must integrate with your “Attack Battle Kit” (ABK).

  • The “ABK” must be lightweight, high speed / low drag and cost effective.
  • The ABK will be readily accessible at all times…
  • The ABK will be carried just about everywhere so it is rapidly accessible when needed. At home have the ABK in the same location always, ready to go. (It is your responsibility to make sure no one can obtain your weapon(s)…) Having the ABK quick to access and safe from others will require some planning & preparation. If you decide you cannot have the ABK quick to access and must lock it away due to having others in the household, such as young kids, etc… MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR EDC WEAPON ON YOUR PERSON, even at home… Attacks and home invasions happen EVERYWHERE… YOU MUST RAPIDLY LAUNCH A VIOLENT DECISIVE COUNTER ATTACK OR EVADE THE SITUATION. Fight or flight.
  • ABK: In addition to your EDC, the ABK will consist of a “quick to get on” chest rig. The chest rig will carry two to four loaded rifle mags, all of which have previously be tested with your ammo of choice. The type of chest rig we recommend for this role is a minimalist style for its lightweight and low profile. There are a lot of choices. Here is an example of the type we are looking for:   https://www.amazon.com/Blue-Force-Gear-Speed-Multicam/dp/B008SG0VLQ  This type of low profile rig will conceal pretty well under a looser fitting jacket if needed. So include a jacket as well. (Gray Man…) This type of rig can be stowed pretty flat in the trunk concealed with a false floor of sorts. An appropriate overlay of concealment carpet that is attached with spray adhesive to thin tempered Masonite wood, both of which have been cut to fit the trunk outline. You will have to attach parallel pieces of 2×4 to the edges and any “sag points” to maintain levelness. The 2×4’s raise the false floor to create a hidden storage space for your ABK. This concealment compartment will help keep a would be vandal from stealing your gear if your vehicle were to be broken into!  (Get crafting…)

In addition to your minimalistic chest rig of choice, we recommend the addition of personal blowout kit / medical kit that is small in size. This kit will be attached to the chest rig. A pretty good one can be found here: http://shop.skinnymedic.com/ Or you can purchase a small pouch and stock your kit. We recommend a small magazine dump pouch be attached to the waist belt of the chest rig. Position it towards the backside or side (rig dependent), making sure it is accessible with your “secondary” trigger hand for ease of inserting empty magazines… (Maxpedition makes a good one for this…https://www.maxpedition.com/store/pc/Rollypoly-MM-Folding-Dump-Pouch-11p228.htm ) You may want to sew this permanently in place with upholstery string or take it to a shoe repair shop to sew on…  (Makes for getting the chest rig on faster, especially under stress…) You may want to add a water bottle pouch as well… https://www.maxpedition.com/store/pc/Mini-Rollypoly-Folding-Dump-Pouch-11p219.htm

We did not include the utilization of armor to increase ease of mobility/speed, decrease weight and cost…

But if you can afford armor and train with it, we say use it. It could save your life…

Now for the Personal Defense Weapon “PDW”:

“Run what you brung”. Meaning your AR-15, AK, what ever your flavor, as long as you are competent with it and the weapon has proven to be dependable. We all have our preferences. Options are good. We tend to run 16 inch barreled AR-15 Rifles and 10.5 inch barreled AR-15 Pistols in 5.56×45 (With running AR pistols, CCW laws apply, think concealment if needed.)… (All of our recommendations are proven, but are by no means absolute and are subjective…) (Note: A point of consideration is that running 5.56×45 cal. potentially makes ammo sourcing more efficient, just saying…) What ever your PDW choice make sure your have a DEPENDABLE light mounted to the weapon… This weapon stays with your ABK. And finally: You are responsible for being/acting in a legal manner. YOU MUST KNOW YOUR LOCAL & FEDERAL LAWS…

AR15 10.5 PIST.

Keep a quality small/medium sized backpack in your vehicle. There are a lot of really good packs out there. We like 5.11, Kelty and Maxpedition. These are not cheap in price. They are very high in quality and will last many years… Stock it for at being out for 1 to 3 days. As far as contents. This subject has been beat to death. So you can youtube the subject and make your own educated decisions. Remember keep things to a minimum to keep weight down and the ease mobility up. At first when developing our kits we all tend to pack two much crap… Then we carry it and train with it. Then we modify our load out to be more practical. Everyone goes through this process… Keep the weight down!

Again, all of this is subjective and not absolute, just a broad overview of what we do and it works well for us. To much stuff and you will be much less likely to train with it let alone carry it with you day to day… Ask us how we know! Lightweight minimalist kit wins. We are civilian Patriots, not the military. We always select gear we can integrate into day to day life. Our kit is set up for relatively short duration usages of 1 to 3 days.

You ultimately have to live with your gear.

You will update and continually develop your kit to fit your needs, a work in progress.

Being ready for conflict may save your life and your family members lives.

It is your duty.

 

Get busy!

Best regards…

 

Modern Gear Systems (Part 1)

Greetings to all.

We have been and still are swamped with work. This is the reason we have not been posting much…

Over the years we continuously developed our “kit”…

As you all are aware, there is no “one” kit for all mission requirements.

We as many others have everything from EDC (everyday carry) to full battle load-out kits…

We decided to create a series of articles that will guide you in developing a generic kit that is fast into action and not super expensive. The concept is if your kit is lightweight, quick into action, and cost effective, you will be more likely to carry it and train with it. Our selections are not absolute. They are just well selected items that work great and are cost effective.  This kit will be “layered”, meaning you still have your EDC kit on you at ALL TIMES + you have a slick, high speed low drag kit that is quickly accessible when needed that works WITH your EDC…

There is a lot of confusion as what to purchase.

This will help.

Assuming you already have your EDC kit developed… What?  Your not quite there yet.

Okay, we will start with your EDC.

EDC Kit (Part 1, Tier 1 Kit)

  1. Get fit. This is the most important & cost efficient part of your kit. Exercising is free. Walking, backpacking, running, bicycling, swimming, martial arts/boxing type training will help take care of your cardio needs. Do body weight exercises, various pushups, pullups, chin-ups, situps, leg raises, squats, isometrics, sprinting, etc., this will take care of your strength training. Eat healthy. The Paleo type diet is great. http://thepaleodiet.com/what-to-eat-on-the-paleo-diet/
  2. Attire is subjective to activities and occupational requirements. So lets focus on your casual outside of work attire. This is again, subjective. We use and recommend 5.11 clothing. http://www.511tactical.com/mens.html
  3. Get good hiking boots. Mid height and relatively lightweight wins here.
  4. Get a good gun belt.(Super important!) http://www.511tactical.com/maverick-assaulters-belt.html , the belt supports your holster, magazine pouches and what every else you need to attach to it.
  5. For pistol holsters we recommend Blade Tech, Raven Concealment and Cross Breed. We generally favor appendix carry but do often carry in the lower back area as well. Carry in a way that works for you. http://shop.blade-tech.com/index.php?cPath=1_13 , http://raven-concealment-systems1.mybigcommerce.com/appendix-carry-rig-acr/ , https://www.crossbreedholsters.com/HotcakesStore/ProductViewer/tabid/113/slug/SuperTuck-Deluxe/Default.aspx?utm_source=ammoland
  6. Carry at least one extra pistol magazine. Two would be better… Remember our theme, layerment, meaning our EDC will become part of our battle kit when needed.
  7. Carry a folding knife that has a pocket clip. Lots of options here. We recommend SOG and Spyderco. http://www.sogknives.com/everyday-carry/knives/flashback-mini.htmlhttp://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details.php?product=209 , The choices here are proven to meet our needs. These are smaller and more lightweight than many others. Easy to carry and work very well.
  8. Flashlight.: Get one. Gazillions of options here as well. I currently carry this: http://maglite.com/shop/maglite-xl50-led-3-cell-aaa-flashlight.html#.V1mKcyjtiSo   It is lightweight and AMERICAN MADE, a very cost effective option that uses common AAA batteries!
  9. Ear plugs, disposable dust mask, handkerchief, clear or light tint safety glasses/eye glasses, multi-tool, tourniquet. All of these items will carry easily is a cargo pant pocket and/or shirt pocket. (Disposable dust mask & handkerchief, what for? Ask the folks on the streets near the 9-11 attack.  (So you do not bleed out…) (They fold flat. Carry in a zip-lock sandwich bag.) (Throw in a pair of vinyl disposable gloves also…) (Some folks are allergic to latex.)
  10. Pistol (Subjective as heck…) There are a lot of solid choices here. We generally carry Glocks, Sigs, & HK’s. My personal carry is a Glock 19 and for deep concealment a Glock 26. Yeah, yeah, it is just the measly, 9mm… Calibers are subjective as well. We recommend 9mm, 40sw, 45acp. These calibers are common which helps with the ease of acquiring ammo. As for defensive ammo we recommend  Speer Gold dot, Hornandy Critical Duty, Federal HST, Corbon. There are many more good choices available. Make sure you test fire your ammo through firearm to make sure it functions! Most people will not carry a large, heavy handgun. We don’t. We want to carry our handgun of choice all the times. Ounces equal pounds and pounds equal pain, as they say. So choose wisely.

Until next time,

Get busy!
