Range/Hunting/Camping ruck
« on: February 24, 2015, 09:26:15 AM »
Saw this while browsing the interwebz out of boredom.

Looks like a decent pack.

Looks like a good set-up, but question the need of the scabbard- wouldn't you have weapon at the ready while on the move in a SHTF scenario?

Theoretically yes, however, what if you have 2 rifles? Or you are carrying something heavy that requires both hands? Or if you're heading to the range and are only taking 1 rifle? Just load her up in the scabbard, then put the ammo, targets, chronometer and other accoutrements in the back and POW, all together and ready for transport.

Chronometer....The big thing I have against the range here I belong to. They will absolutely not allow time to get it set up right so the hoods or pickups don't get blown apart and that it is on target. So I end up working up the loads at the range, then head to hills to shoot across the chronograph. No big deal unless you have a dozen different rifles or bullet weights to work up.

That's harsh

I have a great pack from tactical assault gear. It has a strap and pouch on the back outside that allows you to carry your weapon upright on your bag while you're humping. I'll get details and pics later. 
Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

Not going to lie, LOVE T.A.G's stuff.

This what you got?

Sorry Bobby,  I was confused in my old age.  I have the TAG chest rig  I keep loaded with mags for the ready.  I keep food and gear in the TAD.  Grab both and I'm ready to go.

My favorite pack is actual Triple Aught Designs Fast Pack EDC  The "transporter tail" is a place for the rifle or other stuff to be carried.  My favorite pack, but then I have not tried everything out there.

It's all good, everyone has those moments. How do you like the Gladiator?

I like it.  Its built like a tank and has lots of molle attachement points which makes it very configurable.  I carry pistol pouches on the sides and it makes for a lightweight way to carry a lot of ammo. I really, really want to get a soft armor plate carrier and multi hit plates while civis still can.  Any advice?

One thing I like about T.A.G is that they can modify any of their gear for you. I think they can even build one up for you in a non common pattern, like the kryptec pattern.

As for the armor, TAG makes plate carriers, which can mount mag holders and etc.

Armee surplus, while you still can
Get a level 4 multi strike light weight body coutour.

Most grunt guys had the heavier plates but the SF units had the good stuff
