why does everyone at the range look like this? Posted on May 3, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor why does everyone at the range look like this?
because it's fun and it triggers nu-fudds like yourself
don't you feel embarrassed for being an adult and playing dress up?
you realize you are cosplaying?
do you think spending 5k on some tactishit is a lot of money?
Only a poor would have this line of reasoning.
>implying I've only spent 5k
poor detected! poor detected! poor detected!
>glazing over the shit photoshop
whew i knew summer was near but holy shit is it bright outside
40k GPNVG's in pic
are you ok retard?
lol i can’t even buy enough ammo for a range trip with 5k
>He can't afford 5k worth of ammo
Get a job loser, your poorfag cope is obvious and embarrassing
He's 100% correct though, it's objectively true. You are playing dress up. Why not just own it? You like to dress like a soldier for fun, at least
ill say it again if youd like. but you sound like a bitch and probably would report me for spamming
you sound like an impoverished, anti-gun homosexual
Spending an obscene amount of money on pussy repellent like OP’s pic doesn’t mean you’re not poor. It’s not even a good status symbol because the only people who know how much those NODs and that IR laser costs are other gun autists.
train how you fight, simple as
You queers aren't fighting anything.
>You queers aren't fighting anything.
fuck off im fighting the urge to suck your fucking cock right now
>put on larp uniform
>drive 45 minutes to the range
>shoot static targets at 100 yards for two hours
>get bored and start magdumping at pistol range
>aon the way home stop by mcdonalds and get a milkshake
>"train how you fight, simple as" he says to himself
everyone is playing dress up all the time, it's just most people are wearing their wagie cosplay
thread should have ended here, we're all acting as something we want to be.
I enjoy cosplaying.
>don't you feel embarrassed for being an adult and playing dress up?
>you realize you are cosplaying?
They hated him because he spoke the truth
They hate you because they resemble that remark.
>bechrested Suppressed 300BO pistol
Are the funniest.
based, lmao'ing at all the salty replies ITT
You thinking about my penis right now?
I for one am glad shooters can dress up like this, but it's cope for hitting that point in shooting where going to the range and setting up is a pain in the ass, so if you are dressed up like Soap McTavish then it's fun again.
So all your equipment is on you instead of a table. If you’re not a flat range indoor shooter you’d find it useful. No tables in the outdoors.
How vain, you focus on form over function
Let’s be real.
Everyone who does this does it because the cool army guys wear it.
If these same items were available to civilians with the exact same function but an entirely different form than what was given to the military, no one would want it. They would want the same thing but with the form of the army guy’s stuff.
Let's be real. No matter how skilled you are you can't hold magazines, plates, med kits, food and water, and other gear with your two hands while holding a gun. Thats why you let your gear hold it all for you.
>because the cool army guys wear it
And why do they wear it again? Do you think war is just a fashion show?
What "different form" can you give mag pouches, plate carriers, or chest rigs? Denim and flannel instead of camo?
they are wearing it because it’s their fucking job. civilians larping as operators is giga cringe
And a lot of actual veterans just wear normal clothes at the range
99% of them do because the military was just a way for them to better their shit lot in life. The ones playing dress up are impressional fucks who think they’re even more special than the other tards playing operator in a public place, it’s always funny to see the larpers play dress up in a setting where there is no plusses to wear it, i know there’s many anons here coping that they want to see how their kit holds up “on da field” but walking 20 steps to a bench or hogging a pistol lane is not the field, hiking a few miles with it is
My infantry instructors always made fun of 20 yard target-plinking because it's not real training. It's something funsy that anyone can pick up and do in a day. It was always just a time waste before we got to the real training. I'm laughing in here at larpers thinking this is "field-testing" their equipment.
Go one a jog with it, with only the plate carrier and empty mag pouches ofcourse to avoid any drama, or hell go for a hikes with all of it on, go on a cold day if it's your first time hiking in a while, take plenty of water. Also you can just jog around your yard if you have a normal sized one. Ranges are an absolutely retarded place to take a full kit, if you want to larp while shooting, get into air soft, less people will laugh at you
>if you wanna be less cringe just walk around your backyard with an empty plate carrier and none of the equipment actually on you
god i love this board.
Wearing your kit for 30 minutes at the range does nothing but let you play barbie dress-up with yourself. There's no "getting used to your equipment" by taking it on and off when it's convenient for you. If you're gonna play pretend, you might as well do something useful with it.
so, its fine if they take a stopwatch and time themselves?
Yes anon, if they wear it for 30 minutes and one second it suddenly becomes useful.
No one is telling your dumb ass to remove the plates, if you actually went out, you’d realize that plate carriers is part of normal gym bro behavior and seeing people jogging with one on is normal. Stop strawmanning because you personally dont want to excersize but still want to feel like a operator
it just seems like a lot of work to just "not go to the range", lmao. be less cringe, and:
>walk around your backyard in half your gear
>or be an asshole gymbro
but dont go to the gun range with your gun accessories, anon. thats cringe.
Walking around your backyard in half your gear is unironically less cringe than taking your kit to the range. You look like a fucking dweeb either way, but that's just because everyone knows you're not gonna use your gear for anything other than larping anyways. Just admit you like playing dress up.
okay anon, you do you lel. im just picturing it.
>hey anon, wanna go to the range and make some holes in paper?
>nah, im gonna walk around my backyard in half my gear, some guy on the internet thinks its less cringe
What is this retarded scenario? Just go to the range and plink your paper for fun, and save the kit for when it's useful.
We do this at my friend's house. He has a big yard and we can shoot there. I bring the gear. I also scream things about garden gnomes at the targets when we do this.
well i actually agree in this case. if you were just in full nazi attire at the range, whatever. but yelling about garden gnomes, yeah, kinda cringe.
what if we do it as a group type of things. we shoot with his boys and i'll sometimes have them determine whether the target is gnomish or not
Based anti semite chad, still less cringe than going to the range in soldier drag
Unless you're shooting at paintings in an art gallery, you're not there to look or be looked at. Training is a perfect use for gear, because killing with it is not too legal.
Training is a perfect use for gear, but putting holes in paper at 20 yards isn't training.
>he does it all for a paycheck
You don't need to use it for a job, it's good for training too. Extrinsically motivated mufuggas be like
Let's be real. If I didn't need it I wouldn't bring it. Indoor flat range shooters won't ever know this, since the range benches carry it all. You would know this if you had a father to shoot outdoors with instead of posting this non-sequitur Freudian slip of yours. Cry on someone else's shoulder, your tears will ruin my IR coated fabric
>angry word salad
No wonder your dad left.
He's still out for smokes huh? Must be a long lineup
Let's be real. You will never need/use all that shit at the same time. You would know this if you had a father who took you camping. Instead you play dressup to look like the media created masculine archetype you think might finally make your absent dad love you.
Why do you care?
Dress for the job you want
>job you want
You can just sign up for the military then?
I’m fat the military doesn’t want me
>I don't want you to have gear!!!
>dems are right.
>nobody NEEEEEEEEDS a *insert object*
Yes it's larping, no I'm not embarrassed. Better to have and be familiar with it, rather than not having and being unfamiliar. Anyone that has a problem with gear is a fag. Simple as.
I love cosplaying
Dis bro calling out autism on PrepHole, your giving out speeding tickets at the indy 500
Shut up bitch, you were raised without a father
>Calling others fatherless
terrible b8 m8, r8 2/8 made me reply
You will never be hugged by your father
absolutely SEETHING replies
tacticool gear is truly the status symbols for poorfags
is cosplaying supposed to be embarrassing or childish? lmao
its america, if fags can have pride, you can have people kitted up to the range, stop telling other free people how to be less free bitch.
AR larperator fags are way closer to fudds in spirit because they hate anything outside of their gay larp and don't enjoy firearms. No different than some fat boomer with a durr rifle he only shoots once a year from a tree stand.
Nu Fudds are the people who tell you what you "need" instead of "you don't need that". It's the same myopic anti fun cancer mindset
Fuck you zoomer
>poor akfag/surplus fag spotted
you're young, you'll earn more money in the future. don't let us infuriate you, let us inspire you.
I usually wear a dress or flannel
Fellow Canuck spotted.
Pacific northwest US so close enough
I dress like this but its because "the range" is my land, my woods, and my territory to spook around as I please.
What can is that? Or is it just a short can with a cover?
LMT is sexo too.
I hot a lmt lower because i couldnt find a radian lower at a resonable price but the vltor MUR upper i already purchased didnt fit the lmt lower. I like it but wish i mated to more uppers
I hadn't heard of issues like that, sorry to hear anon, that's a bummer. I'm an unironic ADM shill, but LMT places pretty high too, if only aesthetically/reputationally since I don't actually have an LMT, even if the NZ rifle is pure sex. I don't like buying only eyy arrs, so after the ADM, I really only plan on getting a Six8 and SFAR, but some day I'll hopefully get at least something like that NZ rifle!
A monolithic or the new ones that aren't? If the former, where the hell did you even get one of those!?
Its a stripped upper besides the dust cover and forward assist my mistake it mates with radian upper fine but the LMT lower right side bold catch/release collides with the forward assist on the MUR upper
Because it looks awesome, gay.
It looks awesome in a active combat zone
Even a fucking raghead wearing old Soviet gear looks more awesome
If you are dressed like this after your pit stop to McDonald’s on the way to a range you look like a dork and should be treated as such
Ramirez isn't going to be around to save my local Burger Town when the Russians come. Semper paratus baby.
Buying ten PSA shitters and putting them in your closet is gonna save the town far far more than you pretending to be a door kicker and getting ventilated like the vdv bros all did when they tried to be high sped operators in Kiev
A lot can be done with NV, suppressor, and a thermal optic after seeing
One day you fans will call this sovl
i hate multisneed camo
have you ever been to a gun range?
Because its important to train with kit on. It's how you get better. If there was ever a situation where you had to defend yourself with a firearm, you would ideally want body armor and a way to carry ammo. When you train with kit, not only does it make you more proficient but it makes you realize what works and what doesn't work and you may need to make adjustments here and there to achieve a functioning and efficient setup of equipment. Just training with your rifle or whatever wont make you better. It'll make you a good shot, sure, but there's more to it than just being a good shot.
Go hiking with it on instead of making yourself look retarded like the tards who wear a yukata in public
Not the same at all lmao. Kit may need to be rearranged for better efficiency and the only way to find that out is if you train with it on.
Train with it in your backyard, go on a midnight walk, run on a cheap treadmill, do jumping jacks with it on, you don't need to make others cringe for you to satisfy your cosplay desires
I don’t care what a fat basement dweller like you thinks
You playing dress up in places where you arent actually getting any benefit from it is half a step away from a chud trying to justify using the girls bathroom, it’s offputting and everyone judges you for it, but go off i guess queen.
NTA but how is shooting with the kit youre supposed to use when shooting bad?
Fats think you're only suppose to shoot guns sitting down on a bench. On the occasion they are standing, they just reload from their back pocket.
Remember you're only one nog being choked out on the street showing up on the news away from needing to wear any kit.
They're fat and poor and the type of person to go to a boxing gym to do bag drills "for fitness" - but never spar anyone or have any interest in how an endeavor "that's never gonna happen" such as a fight - would actually work
They're 1200lb immobile objects who are big meanies 🙁
Way of the gun style gear
>belt with spare magazine and ccw holster
>easily concealed under clothes
Is all any civilian would realistically need
Even if you are involved in crime and are a hitman
Unless you are some mercenary working in Latin America all that stuff is nothing more than toys
Who are you fighting? Do you always wear armor? Because when you need a firearm won't be up to you.
>If there was ever a situation where you had to defend yourself with a firearm, you would ideally want body armor and a way to carry ammo
Please explain to me what kind of situation a civilian would be in where he needs to defend himself with a gun and just happens to already be wearing full gear, I'm genuinely curious about what kind of weird autistic daydream situation you've cooked up in your head where you're gonna be attacked while carrying anything more than a CCW piece or waking up in the middle of the night after hearing a loud bang.
You need to go back to school. You write like a 12 year old.
>Oh shit, I don't actually have an argument
>Uhhhh, yer spelling bad!
>I have a problem with how other people spend their time
>I have a problem with what other people wear
What else makes you seethe like a mouth breathing gay?
You live in a ghetto
>Please explain to me what kind of situation a civilian would be in where he needs to defend himself with a gun and just happens to already be wearing full gear
Civil unrest, tyrannical government, foreign invaders. I'm surprised you cant figure this out for yourself, its pretty simple shit.
You will get the book thrown at you as seen with the thousands of patriots that were arrested during 2020, even point that muzzle at a odd angle and you'll have your rights stripped for life.
Using your vote and free time to levy local politicians that align with your ideals is a far more effective measure, you will get domed by a drone or vanned on sight if you show up dressed as a larper
You're in the US, not Bosnia, no one is coming to fight you in a conventional conflict, stop being retarded
>I'm surprised you cant figure this out for yourself, its pretty simple shit.
Then why did you list such dog shit reasons? I can think of ten better ones right now
>You will get the book thrown at you as seen with the thousands of patriots that were arrested during 2020, even point that muzzle at a odd angle and you'll have your rights stripped for life.
Not necessarily true. If you're defending your property from intruders then its a different story.
>you will get domed by a drone or vanned on sight if you show up dressed as a larper
Sure, but I'd at least like to have a chance at survival.
>You're in the US, not Bosnia, no one is coming to fight you in a conventional conflict
Still not impossible. If shit went to shit (which probably wont ever happen), then again, I'd like a chance at survival.
>I can think of ten better ones right now
Lets hear em then.
I make sure to load extra big charges of black powder when I'm upwind of the larp brigade and their SBR 300BOs.
I just roll up in my office attire; blue oxfords, guayaberas of various colors or sleeve lengths, Bahama shirts, chinos or black khakis, and my safety toe loafers
This summer is gonna be Guayabera and a Smith 6906 every day.
Because they're dorks. Simple as.
STOP LARP SHAMING
Americans should do as they please.
I've literally never seen a single person in gear at the range
I took a carbine class in the summer and threw my armor on (not kitted out like OP) and the instructor is like “You’re just making it harder for yourself”. I said I thought that was the pint. (Disclaimer: Did not say “Train hard fight easy brother”).
what kind of range do you go to?
never seen anyone in kit at any wma or range ive been to
They have no training, they think the equipment is what keeps people alive. Guy with actual training has cargo pants at most.
Idiot. You are auch a stupid mothercucker you cant differentiate between pictures of pipe cleaners in a bodyguard style low vis mode while theyre driving through a town or hamlet whatever theyre called and when theyre dropped off for a room clearong cqbbbbbb high value target kill or capture mission.
OOH RAH DEVIL DOG GET SOME RUFF RUFF
Everyone who still uses the poor meme should be legally required to show all their assets outside of heckin gunarino toys.
Wouldn’t know I shoot at my friends fathers land in the mountains
So they can be the next AlphaDelta Seal SMU Black Berets
>wow you think that $1,200 I spent on my fur suit was too much money? ok poorfag
Thats high quality for such a low price.
Whos the maker?
>a bit generic design but rather tasteful color palette
>adds fucking cyan
Why do furmoron have such terrible early teen taste in colors?
>spends money on range toys instead of ranch land
It's okay to play army dress up, just be self-aware about it and don't take it seriously. Tactical larpers who actually think they're elite uber commandos are annoying gays.
if you plan to wear that gear during doomsday then sure it's fine to train in it.
What range do you go to... is it in the military. Are you in the military is that the joke
Because you are at Ft. Bragg?
No I was at Fort Fag
What plate carrier?
Larperators like Botkin normalized it.
>If I wear what the popular kids are wearing, I’ll be happy
Tactical gear is the funko pops of gun culture
I'll never stop larping, continue to seeth in your apartment europoor.
I've never seen someone dressed like this at a range. Most tacticool I've seen is two fat guys with plate carriers and Hawaiian shirts. What ranges do you go to?
You must live in a suburban or rural area, in most cities the ranges close by are full with zoomers trying to be the next gun eceleb. Even the ranges here in Salt Lake are full with tacticool tards
Thats probably why. I only go to WMA ranges
is this Garand Thumb or something?
Garand thumb with a pube beard would be weird
Wannabe cracker losers, same as airshit crackers.
There was a group of these fags today all doing drills together. I walked up in gym shorts, slides, and my battle belt hanging over my t shirt and joined them. Absolutely mogged them all, ended up turning it into a little class. It was like a bunch of retarded professors all dressed nicely being lectured by a student wearing $5 in good will clothes.
Idk what gun range you go to but the only time I see people in kit is during training events. Based if people do tacticool LARP at yours full time, the 2nd Amendment is to be used to kill enemies of the people, not for some faggy sport purposes and I'm glad we're stopping the sugarcoating nonsense.
Wouldn't catch me in anything more than a couple of mixed multicam pieces though, dressing as a ZOGbot is real gay.
the amount of asspain and cope in this thread is unreal fukken lmao
you will never be a SEAL. you will never be a Raider. you will never be an oper8r. Only an ultra-autist. That will be your highest honor.
>never be a seal
>never be a fat retard who lies about missions where his buddies got killed by stupidity for garden gnomes
Why be a ZOGbot when you can be better?
Better like who? Proffesional contractos that are getting merked in Ukraine? VDV that were all slaughtered? The chud operator that got domed by a cop the moment one showed up? Who are specifically larping as and hope to achieve? Because the moment someone that is able to defend themselve is put up against you, those drills of shooting into the dirt 5 feet away will mean jack shit
>Better like who
Yourself and your own evolving standards. Get trained to a point where you not only can do something well, you can never do it poorly ever again. If those people got kilt in the streetz they didn't train hard enough.
>The chud operator that got domed by a cop the moment one showed up?
you have to embrace your own style, show the military larp fags the what for. I rock a hybrid of an IRA member and the columbine edge. I dont care, I feel cool because its graymanish and no one else really does it. Let the overplayed armyfags play dressup, and find your own "cringe" aesthetic
I simply find it funny that many of these guys are preparing for SHTF but are only making themselves look like prime loot drops.
>dress up in full monkey suit
>go downtown to run protection missions (stand in front of macys for a few hours)
>get shot by a wannabe banger with a hipoint
such is life
Their main weapon is to induce second hand embarrassment
holy fucking neckbeard
>gay cringe mask cuck
why do you care what other people wear?
I drive down the gravel road to the rifle range drinking a Reign energy. I'm listening to a tactical podcast that gets 4 monthly listeners. I put it in park, and hop out of my lifted Tacoma in full kit, approach the line with my rifle already slung. It's a cold range, everyone is downrange setting up targets. I raise my gun and begin magdumping a steel silhouette at 100 yards. I'm shooting it so fast and hard that it falls back and hits the ground with a pleasing thump. A boomer unbags his 30-06 and blows my head off.
>own a gun because I love the constitution
>don't need any gay tacticool weapons
>got my deer gun
>got my trusty GI 1911
>anything more than 8 rounds is a meme
>get my concealed carry permit because I follow the rule of law
>go out with my 200lbs wife and 3 children
>"daddy we want ice cream"
>go to Dairy Queen
>I fucking love blizzards
>we stand in line for 5 minutes to get me and my fat family some ice cream
>I hear someone in the kitchen start losing their mind
>my wife and kids are panicking
>I turn to tell my family it'll be fine
>I don't see the employee jump the counter
>I pull my trusty 1911 from my holster
>employee stabs me in the neck with a fork
how is this any different from wearing woodland bdu's an lbv and running around with a kbar and a semi auto m16a2 larping as mac v sog/lrrp like many gen-x's did when they were young?
>inb4 MUH SOVL
They don't, and you know they don't, but you're poor and need affirmation so you made this retarded thread.
Reminder that the people who accuse others with nice things of being "LARPerators" are the same people who think picrel is gospel.
too scared to join the military so massively overcompensate to the point of looking ridiculous to anyone in the military
>bro being on a range is totally the same thing as being in an active war zone on patrol
Why wear camo to the range
I guess it's not that strange
But you ain't hiding from nothing
You can go shootin innawoods anyhow
These boys and these hills ain't strangers to war
the difference between civvie larpers and military is simple
one can't wait to get out of camo and into civvies because it's their work attire
the other can't wait to get out of civvies and into camo because they're a scrote larper
the chad jeans and hiking shoes:
garand thumb created those monsters.
a good belt is all a man needs.
so whats the alternative, be the guy whose never actually worn any of his gear because "dressing up is silly, ill save it for real hawg huntin or human coombat:?
For me, it's just normal ass clothes or a full on ghillie suit and ghillie wrap on the rifle, not for shooting but for hunting animals like mountain lions or bears.
I'd wear normal clothes for shooting and hunting game like deer or hogs, but for more difficult game, you basically just appear as a bush. Now if you are prone, and if you have 3D camo like sticks and leaves and surrounding material, then you can basically be invisible. Now concealment from thermal sensors is a different matter, but thankfully the wild animals don't have thermal goggles.
I look like this at the range (sans dead gobbler) because I am indeed cosplaying as a guy who barely knows how to read and might actually be incredibly drunk off his own stock so you better watch out if I'm tipping my powder measure down the barrel more than once because I'm thinking about Cousin Mary's bosom instead of reloading
don't worry about it, the proof load is twice as ordinary.
We don't proof barrels in America
Is it alright if I'm just doing it to steal some valor?
Dumbass larpers who can't even into cool eras
>No Doughboy outfit
>No Union cavalry
>No Continental uniform
>Not even a lazy ass Mad Max wasteland kit
Literal basic bitch trash larpers.
>when you make an absolutely dog shit slide thread and it takes off because 99% of anons on PrepHole are compelled to tell people they are wrong no matter how banal the conversation is
