    Is that Andrew Tate?

    That bro has been on my mind. No cap, I been thinking about that time when I barebacked him raw in a Luton Premier Inn. That shit had to be the tightest, blackest, wettest boy pussy I've ever laid pipe into. I swear to God, the most heavenly high is gargling that wonderboy's nuts while going fist deep into his shitter. I had Andrew Tate screaming in the sheets with head too ridiculous to ignore. That bro frotted my cock until he busted on my mouth, I had to return the favor. That bro Tate and I been fucking non-stop ever since, but keep that shit on the DL. He does that shit for free. If you're gonna ask me how to "long" Andrew Tate, I'll be deadass. All you gotta do is ask, be straight up, and get physical real quick. Touch his nuts, get on ya knees, talk your shit. He doesn't play around with no pansy-ass bros either. He likes his men manly, and his dick thick. Dark skin, 6'5 is the minimum and I ain't talking about height boy.

    That bro Tate stole my heart and drank my sneed.

        You ever thought about trying a G19 Safariland with that APX? I'm willing to bet the ALS will lock in. I did it for an Arex I own and it works flawlessly with a little modification to eliminate some sideways wiggle it had (since a Glock is wider). Pic related. Torture tested the ALS and its not coming out.

      Random specific question- is there a tried and true way to get chest seal adhesive off of clothing? Asking for a friend

      >camo painted piss bottles
      this guy is gonna make it

      Just getting into gearfagging. Just wondering, with a loaded chest rig, slings, a hydration pack/backpack, etc... is it always going to be slightly uncomfortable and bulky/restricted? Like getting my rifle off my body with a sling without the gear takes a second but with all the added bulk it takes a few. It seems like a dumb question but at this point I'm wondering if I'm doing anything wrong. FWIW I mainly wear a Gorka suit and an Alice LBV with the appropriate alice or molle pouches. Also, is it worth investing in a knife if I always carry a quality multitool?

      It'll always be bulky and annoying, but the best you can do is practice and adapt. Play innawoods for a few hours and maybe you realize "If I move this pouch over here instead, it'll catch my sling less" and so on. Too many people on here buy brand new shit, set it up exactly like a gear picture they find on pinterest, and never touch it again. Don't be afraid to do what works for you. Plate carrier-mounted slings are universally shit on online but I found two point slings to be too annoying over armor so I bought a pc mounted y sling and it works fine for me and how I larp

      >is it worth investing in a knife if I always carry a quality multitool?
      I'd offer that it makes more sense to get a multitool that *does not* have a knife on it. Most multitools when you look at them have shit you never use, like tiny scissors and eyeglasses screwdrivers. tee bee aych desoo I stopped carrying my leatherman for this reason, and now only carry a folding pocket knife and a separate set of pliers with a wire cutter. Leatherman is fine in the car, but I don't need 4 types of saw blades immediately accessible on my belt to shoot at steel targets and old tv sets innawoods. Protip- buy a segmented/screw apart cleaning rod if you dont have one already. You're way, way more likely to need to tap out a stuck case than you would need your leatherman T10 torx bit innawoods.

        Yeah, I should probably get a better sling. I'm eyeing up the Magpul one that lets you switch from a single point to a 2 point.

        I've tried almost every sling and the two best slings are either a basic length of non adjustable webbing (for pure retention, not tightening against your body for hi speed lo drag dynamic movements) or the bfg snickers sling

        the hailey sling gets an honorable mention, but the snickers sling is cheaper, stronger, and has a better pull tab imo

        any cheap rig i can get that will hold about 3 ar mags and 2 pistol mags

        do you need to carry anything else on the rig? pic related holds 4 and 4. Gadsen also makes custom chest rigs so if you really wanted you could literally have them sew you a rig with exactly 3 rifle mags and 2 pistol mags if you wanted to be that much slimmer

      Its alright. I use it without the harness as my range belt. The fact that its not slotted makes it kind of a pain in the dick to mount the holster but it works. It's also pretty flimsy so if you plan on using it as a belt and not an LBE don't expect you're gonna be mounting a ton of shit to it because it'll get hard to run with fast (the only thing stopping it from shifting around is the tightness around your hips). As an LBE it would probably be fine since the harness will keep it in place.

      Just depends on where your LAM is or other accessories, I like to mount mine 3 o clock as tight as I can to my LAM as possible to save space.

      if you aren't using a switch, 10 oclock works well. the whole 'mount it away from your body because people aim at the light thing' is pure overthinking by people who don't have anything too shoot and have too much time to fantasize about combat.

    i am on the fence on whether i should i get a bump or ballistic helmet. i honestly don't feel i'll ever really need the ballistic helmet and the bump will work fine for eventuall nvg's while being lighter and cheaper. how did you decide, and if you got a ballistic helmet what made you get one?

      don't buy a helmet until you have already bought nvgs and they're in your hand

      to do otherwise is like buying a wedding ring when you're still a lonely incel in a basement thinking you'll get a gf someday

        please explain why. it's going to be a little while before i can get night vision and i thought it would be good to have the helmet first to get used to it.

        Ballistic helmets are a requirement for some live fire shoothouse courses if you ever want to go to a lot of those. Otherwise a bump is more than fine and a good investment pre nods because having a piece of something bonk your head is ill advised by your doctor.

        that is something i never really considered, but it makes sense.

          I will go against the grain and tell you getting a helmet before nods is a great idea. Helmet suspension, sizing and comfort is huge and you will want that helmet to be rock solid in terms of adjustment and fit far before nods come into play. In the interim you have a larper hardhat which is good inna urban otherwise innawoods its good incase you slip and eat shit on a rock while scrambling.

          you expressed that you want a helmet to hold your nvgs
          you don't own nvgs yet
          so why are you so worried about getting a helmet first

          if you want a helmet in the meantime to look cool, literally buy any skateboard helmet off amazon and spray paint it- you'll look like a tryhard idiot either way but save some money to put towards nvgs you're not going to buy anyway

            You're right: I am far too poor to justify a krink, but even a WASR should should have one.

            For an inner belt, is it better to go 1.5 or 2.0? I've noticed that 1.75 isn't always available e.g. LAB. I am honestly not sure I could fit a 2.0 in a lot of belt loops.

      If you really want to get into gauze autism you should be getting packing gauze which is thinner and has an xray strip. NAR makes a non-hemostatic packing gauze and it costs about the same as their regular compressed gauze.
      But realistically any type of gauze will do a good job for simply packing a wound.

                Tubes bend if you load into them and tend to snap at the worst times. Shoulder tubes come off if you run a stock across them and the rubber gets too grippy.

            >and spook people walking their dogs kek
            good recipe for unironically getting shot, though I admit to fucking with teens smoking in the park sometimes
            nods are fun and definitely a superpower but don't make you invincible, and a surprising amount of people are totally chill with just fucking shooting at noises. stay safe out there

            ok to clarify, i dont mean jumping out of the woods and scaring people. i mean just walking by them on the sidewalk wearing nods as they walk their dogs

            Where is the DM jacket supposed to sit in the layering system? It looks like L5, people talk about it like it's L5, but the first-party copy is curiously devoid of terms like soft-shell and water resistance. L3+L4 or some shit?

            • 1 month ago
              A2Grip

              L5 is a softshell
              DM/Atom LT jackets are more akin to L4/L7 in the sense its a windproof insulative layer. Its water resistant in the sense light rain and snow contact wont soak through but im not going to wear one in a torrential downpour/for prolonged snow contact.

              For me its a warming layer that goes over gear when static or under gear when really cold and mobile.

              • 1 month ago
                Anonymous

                Gotcha, makes sense. I guess I was assuming L4/L7 == not water resistant at all.

                Context is looking for a better setup for light activity in my usual fall/winter weather, which is 40s and light rain. L3+L6 is overkill in terms of water/wind protection, and L7 is overkill in terms of insulation. My Beyond softshell is close but a bit on the light side, but stacked with a L3 is too warm for activity. Not sure whether I need a heavier L5 or if L4 + L3 fits this role better, relying on that semi water resistance of L4 (and just jumping up to 6 when that's not enough).
                Because I'm lazy I like the idea of having a single jacket to grab when going on a walk or other non-super-preplanned activities, but if I'm stuck layering for basic stuff that's not the end of the world.

                Similar weather around these parts. Typically a light fleece layer under a solid rain/wind layer does the trick for me. Insulative enough to not shiver but still breathes well enough for sustained activity. If it gets colder I just add an L1 or L2 next-to-skin layer under the fleece, but that can get toasty quick.

                >Typically a light fleece layer under a solid rain/wind layer does the trick for me.
                That's more or less what I'm doing now and yeah, it works well enough, though I feel like I'm carrying a lot of goretex that I don't end up needing 70% of the time, and if I'm hiking I end up cooking myself sooner than I would otherwise.
                On one hand it is nice to be prepared for sudden weather changes, but I'd just like to have a better go-to if I know I'm not going to get dumped on, hence the interest in options for light water resistance. Increasingly thinking that I need a super-light/packable L4 jacket.

              • 1 month ago
                Anonymous

                I've had mixed luck with the few L4s I've had over the years. They help solve your packability and grab'n'go issue, but the water resistance usually stops at an intermediate mist from my experience. Any sort of steady rain and you're soaked to the core in short order. The dirt cheap ORC Industries PCU L4 I picked up held up the best on that front, but I only end up using it in those in-between seasons these days where fleece and L5 are too insulating but a t-shirt and light breeze leaves you a little chilly. I think you'll be hard pressed to find an all-in-one solution that offers serious wind and rain resistance, but I'm also not on top of the latest and greatest. I know Beyond runs sales on their L4 stuff pretty often, have had generally good luck with their stuff to date.

                Fair enough. Like suggested I'll probably grab a heavier L5 and a cheap L4 when there's a good chance. This has been helpful, so thanks: trying to get all this shit properly sorted to incentivize myself to be less of a fair-weather outdoorsman.

                They are. There's plenty of cheaper alternatives out there, but Arcteryx stuff really does make some good stuff even in their non-LEAF lines. Tbqh I picked up a majority of my Arc stuff besides the rain jacket at like 70% off or something silly, so it was a no brainer. I'd still argue that their stuff is worth consideration at retail though.

    hi fellas im looking for some outerwear. I live in the pacific northwest and im looking for a jacket that sheds rain but is also warm. Ideally I'd like something thats good down to about 35-40 degrees F, at temps below that I plan on adding a base layer.

    I want a jacket that doesnt interfere with a gun belt (like my gorka does) and can be worn under a plate carrier. Budget is unlimited, I want the best. I looked at first spear and crye so far. ideally some sort of green or brown.

      You should layer insulation under rain gear so you can dry insulation and use the rain gear without the insulation.
      With that in mind

      They're both level 4 plates, but 4400s are multicurve and 4401s are single curve. If you're seeing different weights make sure you're looking at the same size and not comparing a 10x12 to a SAPI large.

    Catching up on old business, picrel. Showing abt 0.4dBm max dev from previous posted specan measurements using the Agilent E4416A Power Meter w/shown sensor. For those who don't know, the black thing is a radio, for the rest who don't know, the black thing attached to the radio is an RF attenuator. Think of it like a big resistor so I don't Glock my power sensor head. Rated at 20Watts, it "absorbes" the powah at a level of 30dB. An old Narda, it is flast as a pancake all day long. This concludes the power output testing of my Baoching, results: SHIP IT. Forget the specs.

      baofeng is based. You ever looked at some of the more gucci baofengs on aliexpress? there are some cool ones to be had for less than $50, just watch out for counterfeits.

      the only thing I dont like about baofeng is how by default, all of the channels are in "wide-band" mode. So even if you are transmitting at lowest power it's still not FCC compliant for MURS. You have to program it to go to narrow band

      Thats why I dont actually buy any of this stuff, I just like looking at cool pictures. All the "gear" I own is a couple holsters (realistic ones like IWB and OWB pancakes), a couple IFAKs, some belt loop mag pouches and a surp Eagle warbelt if I take a class so i'm not wasting peoples time putting shit on my pants belt.

        a lot of the stuff on GQ is very valuable. particularly the chest rigs and clothing recommendations, I have used them when going hunting and camping in all sorts of weather and in bear country.

        you dont have to go full larp with a lvl IV plate carrier and your blood type.

        There's plenty of shitbag agencies and agents out there without a doubt, but there are plenty of wholesome feds as well. The US Marshalls are doing God's work, removing filth from the populace with extreme prejudice and making everyone's life better.

            I don't speak new age pussy-ese. Nobody is shooting anybody for wearing camo. The boogaloo is not real.

    How do you guys learn how to make gear? Im trying to make a buttpack like pic related, but I can't find online instructions. Do you take one apart and measure the components or do you just send it?

      There aren't many guides. Check YouTube channels like SailRite, LearnMYOG, ripstopbytheroll or JasonOfAllTrades. There's a Sewing general thread on PrepHole pretty regularly now too. Sewing requires some prep work to get good results. You can seam rip one apart like you said and then use that to make patterns. For patterns, draw the shape you want and add seam allowance to the edges.
      >t. Also stumbling through gear-making.

      practice and experience

      I normally sew clothes but I made 2 pouches once. I bought a chink made pouch off amazon and ripped it apart to make a pattern that I could change to my needs, and sewed a copy as normal

      Go to the surplus store or on amazon and buy a cheap piece of gear. Take it a apart and study it closely. You'll start to notice patterns on how things are done.

    How much of a dumb idea is using a Safariland shroud (the single strap one) instead of a UBL? I think it looks cool as hell.
