Budget militia loadout

Lets say you're in a working class neighborhood in an urban area. There's significant civil unrest for whatever reason and the local police department is on strike. Looting/vandalism is rampant. You have about 10 capable people with firearms training/previous military/le experience and about $1000 to outfit each of them with gear/weapons/ammo. How do you outfit them to be the most capable. You have about a city block to cover so vehicles aren't super necessary.

    Cheap Ar15
    Flashlight for mounting on rifle
    Some kind of signifier like all of y'all wear a certain hat or armbands or some shit.

      Best answer imo.

      this. Unfortunately for $1000 you won't be able to get armor, but you can get some surplus gear to carry mags and the IFAK.

    $1000 dollars is too easy, you can get a decent ar and kit for that much.

    PSA has rifle kits for $320 and lowers for $40 each. You can put together 10 complete rifles for $400 a pop. There's no weapon system of any kind available that's going to give you better bang per buck than that.
    Anything cheaper is going to massively suck by comparison, anything significantly nicer will be far more expensive.

    Surplus police IIIa kevlar vests typically sell for $50-100 nowadays. They offer no protection at all against rifle fire, but are lifesavers against pistol/shotgun/explosive shrapnel. It's a lot better than nothing.

    Comms are useful. Baofeng UV-5R used to be the standard but I'm out of the loop about what the radio guys are playing around with now. Even cheap Walmart blister pack FRS radios are better than nothing.
    >Bbbut the feds can track you on them.
    Have the ability to track each other before worrying about feds. It's no use if you accidentally friendly fire each other before any glowie even takes notice of your existence.

    That leaves fuckload of money for basic IFAKs, ammo, magazines, boots, sleeping bags, shit like that.

    Dude, an AR-15 with budget sights and three mags on a (front plate only) plate carrier is 99% of what you need.

    No comms?

    >one city block
    $5000 of ammo, cheap
    ~$4000 worth of CNC machine
    maybe use the leftovers for comms gear and other misc. supplies.

    I move to take the city.

    I understand that PrepHole is one big LARP but holy shit this is pathetic and delusional. You will die the first night of the happening.

    8 men armed with cheap AR-15s.
    One armed with a scoped Savage Axis II in .308.
    One armed with a Mossberg 590 and a 9mm pistol.
    A common uniform for quick identifying.
    Cheap handheld radios.
    We barricade the street and set up a roadblock.
    Shotgun bro is watching for enemy recon drones and can also teach crowds what a "skip shot" is.
    As you've already guessed, the scoped rifle is a poorfag DMR attempt.

    Gear-wise the other anons have made great suggestions. Strategy-wise, you and your "militia" should be holding up in a location stocked with food, water, and medical supplies, and avoiding fighting at all costs. In the situation you're talking about, hospital is probably out of action, and armor/first aid can only prolong the inevitable. Hunker down, make your presence known but don't waste ammo and take risks by picking fights with looters and vandals who aren't actively looting and vandalizing your shit.

      Also forgot, basic radio comms and possibly surplus soft armor, even level II would be very useful if most of what you're going up against is handguns.
