    Helmet Pictures Thread - part II

    They appear to be 2 different helmets (mounts are different), so he still has greeny (among others).

    @GhostWolf - FYI, the UBL is a belt mount that drops the holster down a few inches, it is not a drop leg system (though some people will add a strap for added stability). Its a comfy ride/draw height, but I've found that it is less comfortable while riding in vehicles (as compared to a standard holster on the belt or a drop leg).

    For a PC designed to be low-pro & lightweight, you sure have the JPC loaded down to bear... Why not go with a more regular PC that's better designed to distribute weight?

    Jeesh it looks like you have your JPC loaded up heavy.

    Depending on what size you are, the JPC's aren't hard to get. Specifically, my small CB got to me in less than a month.

    I ordered my small JPC in CB in late February and had it about a month later, so depending on the size and color options you're after there may be less of a wait. Does anyone with the Tyr hydro pouch have suggestions for a bladder? Is there anything that fits perfectly, or is it going to need to be "close enough"?

    I also have a JPC with the 10-Speed Helium Whisper. Though I haven't used it in the field, the 10-Speed doesn't bind up the kangaroo pouch at all in wearing/testing around the house. That said, I'm not sold that the 10-Speed is the best pouch for me, as it's a little tighter than I'd prefer and putting mags back in isn't as easy as a non collapsing pouch. I also tried putting three FastMags on the front of the built in kangaroo pouch and found that those did tighten up the internal pouch a tiny bit, but not enough to enough to hinder taking out or putting in the mags. They are also just a tad wide and give the front of the kangaroo pouch a bit of a curve out from the body, which is what I think contributes to the tightening of the kangaraoo pouch. Putting mags back in and removing them is a breeze with the FastMags, I had the bands set in the middle. Again, this was just worn around the house and I don't know what the experience is like in the heat of the moment. If you're putting mags on your chest, I'm going to suggest you not go more than 2 deep, but that's just my opinion. I built a rig that went 3 deep, and 4 mags wide, that didn't even make it out the door; the shelf it built was just too big and the most I will go is 2 mags deep away from the body. My thought was that the 10-Speed will allow me to run just three mags in the kangaroo pouch, and the 10-Speed would collapse down, giving me a smaller profile without having to take the pouch off.

    Does the muzzle end of the holster for your M9 get in the way of drawing mags from the 2nd pouch from the right (weakside)?

    AR15 Variants and Derivitives Picture Thread

    I'm curious what you mean by "Race Gun Mode"? The current race style sweeping the US right now is 3-Gun Competitions (pistol, shotgun, long-gun), wherein most participants use an AR variant for their long gun. Is it supposed to fill a role similar to that of the AR's in the 3-Gun style competitions?
