    What sort of pistol mag pouches you rocking on your belt rig there Shriv? I'm after some reliable open-top types.

    Cheers for that, much appreciated. Is the pistol itself a KSC G17? How's the fit?

    Custom Gear

    Ok, well that was silly. To reiterate since it's been removed now (IAW the forum rules) the rig cost me $350 Canadian, with another $50 or so for shipping once it was completed. Bearing in mind they didn't charge any extra for doing some pretty large modifications to it right at the very end of the process I'm pretty happy with that price.

    Custom Gear

    Since I've been using the same rig (Blackhawk plate carrier) with the same types of pouches for quite some time now, the idea with this is basically to move to a whole new sort of 'generation' of kit. I could quite easily just swap my current pouches on to this as they'd all fit and do the job, but then I'd not really feel like it was much of an improvement. Hence I'll be getting quite a lot of new stuff to go on to this, so it may be a while before it's all done, but then again I might just swap to current stuff on there just to see how it looks, I'll post up either way. Not sure why I omitted the company who made it in the post, strange mistake. After a fair amount of searching around for totally custom gear manufacturers I pinged off e-mails to 3 different ones and actually ended up only getting 1 response, from the guys here: http://www.tigertactical.com So suffice to say they're who I went with. Great standard of work, finished the project in well under 3 weeks of me sending them the payment, kept me up-to-date throughout the build, were accommodating of my changes to the design and were so fast with their communications to me I genuinely was shocked on occasions. I'm glad you said that I must admit because I had a BULLE MLE for ages and loved it in many many ways, if it weren't for the fact it didn't quite size down small enough to fit me properly I'd still be using it to this day I expect. I took ideas from many places including the 2-piece MAV/MLE, the Blackhawk LBE Harness, the Bravo Company Modular Split-Front Chest Harness and the DBT Load bearing H-Harness. The real inspiration that prompted me to finally go and get this thing made (after considering it for well over a year) was a lot less gucci than any of that lot though actually; it was when I found this thing that I finally took the plunge: Condor Modular Chest Set The issue I always had, is that you can get RRV style chest rigs that'll give you a bib, but no back panel and not front split, or there were H-Harness setups with a back panel for hydro (very important to me) and split front, but no bib. That condor rig proved however, that it is indeed possible to have all 3 of those key features at the same time, when you really think about the design. Now admittedly the end result I have there is quite different to the condor set, but this is just a first experimental version that was less costly, and I intend to commission tiger tactical again to produce a version 2 at some point once I've done a few skirmishes in the gen 1 and decided where it could possibly be improved.

    Custom Gear

    Not actually my tactical needlework I'm afraid, but still custom none the less. Pictures kindly taken for me by my brother. It probably looks a lot more complex than it actually is, when I next go home and get a chance to set it up with pouches it'll make more sense. 0 I'll be needing to buy quite a few web dominators and there's 1 small mod still to be made, but once it's all sorted it'll open at the front for extremely quick and easy donning/removal while still giving me more than enough MOLLE space for my needs, and there is no commercially available rig on the market right now that can say the same (edit: not one that fits me anyway). Believe me, I've really looked.

    Not all Glock, but since it was requested here's a G18C slide shoved in to a load of PTS plastic.

    How old actually are you? It's hard to tell; but that M4 really does look like it's dwarfing you in a way. However, don't take that as a put down because I think the tan fatigues with the OD gear makes for a good looking load-out in all honesty. Possibly swap the drop leg for a duty belt with a roll-up dump pouch (warrior does a great one) as that would sort out the bunching issues you seem to have on your left leg, also dropping the silencer (presuming you've not extended the inner barrel) and going for a collapsible stock would make the weapon easier to wield. Good gear choices though, does the RAV actually size down small enough to fit you round the waist?

    Bit different to your usual pics stunt, hope it was a warm rain or I know I'd have got pretty miserable and gone home very quickly in that kind of a downpour. Few of me from yesterday, first skirmish in about 4 months:

    Looks good ERT; though I think the next guy down from you is a bit chilled out with all that leaning backwards.

    My eye! Sweet Jesus, Ouch!

    Seriously empathising right now mate. I seem to have been posted to the worst place in the UK for actually getting planes off the ground. Last time I tried to fly south was Christmas, and, oh no, there's *suitcase* loads of snow, planes don't like snow, we'll cancel your flights 3 days in a row and make you stay on a totally deserted camp for that period of Christmas leave, freezing your balls off, totally alone in the empty block. Could such a delay be caused this time?? Surely not, I mean, look at the weather! Glorious sunshine! But no, oh no no, just you wait one *fruitcage* second there sonny jim, a giant *fruitcage* off volcano has just erupted in *fruitcage* Iceland, and the *fruitcage* off cloud of *fruitcage* ash and dust is now pretty much guaranteed to ground all your flights for close on an entire *fruitcage* week!! I saw the news shortly after waking up, and in all seriousness I was thinking 'April fools has long gone hasn't it? I mean, volcanic dust clouds stopping flights? Don't be *fruitcage* silly' but no, no, turns out it's real. Some all-powerful *Ubar* has got it in for me big time. I don't care how I do it, I'm getting posted back to England, because this *suitcase* *fruitcage* sucks **** *fruitcage* big time.

    Glock Picture Thread

    Well, I'm not entirely sure whether it's relevant or not to be honest, but then again neither do I know who it is that would decide that. If people want to see it however, I'll certainly post it here as well as the magpul thread.

    KWA, fresh out of the box. Figured I'd get a picture for posterity now, right before it goes in my FPG.

    If you had a 1-pt sling hook at the base of the stock there it'd be fairly well hidden under the jacket. Any ladies ask 'is that a short barrelled AR-15 in your pocket'?

    Which PC you sporting there mate? Looks familiar but I can't quite pin it down; nice load-out all round. Also, where did you acquire the b-ball cap? I've been after a decent one with a velcro patch for ages.

    Nice effort mate, I like it. Clean your boots off, sort out whatever that flappy strap is on your leg panel and tighten up the bottoms of yours trousers up a bit (those 5.11 should have draw cords I believe) and it'd look pretty professional. Not much to add though, gloves and a knee pad maybe, good choice of rig and weapon either way.

    Thanks mate, hope you weren't expecting fleck trousers though. I do have some, I was just trying to get as many different patterns in as possible that day.

    I'm thinking of sticking one of the other pictures taken today in to the multicam thread, just to see some of them jump around screaming "Must has t3h tan gear wit MC!!!onehundredandeveven!", but yeah I'm entirely with you on that one mate. I skirmish in english woodland where the mud and the foliage is very dark, OD gear for me just makes sense. Plus, personally I think it looks good, and a bit of a break from all the CB/Khaki/FDE. It's terrible to be honest, I've got it mounted all the way back there overhanging my charging handle for good reason. It's a chinese model so I've no idea what any higher end versions might be like, but I can't see them being all that different. On the other hand however, the 3x mag. works pretty well for woodland skirmishing, and once you close in on your target it's a matter of ~5 seconds to take the quick twist mount off there and you've got your normal red dot again, perfect setup to my mind. A flip-to-side mounted magnifier would be even better admittedly, but this works well enough just for now I think. Heh, aye cheers grim. It was an extremely indecisive morning mate I'll put it that way.

    I gotta tell you guys, I just could not decide which camo to wear this morning. Hope you guys like at least one out of all of those there, heh.

    Tactical Footwear Picture Thread

    Brand spanker Lowa patrols: They seem to be pretty well padded inside and all but bugger me if they aren't absolutely rock solid at the moment. I'm thinking possibly a seriously long, hot soaking is all that's going to soften these up in the slightest so I can actually start to break them in by doing any walking in them. I thought standard issue boots were tough when new...
