I like many of you guy’s am not rich. In fact some weeks get very tight, so I know all of us are interested in shooting! In the spirit of shooting I also understand that on the parabolic arc of the evolution of shooters training or run and gun is fun and requires gear. Here is a short list of stuff you may not have yet and that won’t break the bank!
To start with I recommend gloves “especially for our AK runners out there”
I recommend mechanic gloves for money savers. All this gear is 3-4 years old:
All of this stuff can be found with ease on amazon!
One more point I want to bring up. Winter or summer “I recommend training in both” grab some electrical tape and number your mags. When you drop them you can easily find them again!
I dont use elbow pads but knee pads are a lifesaver if you like carbine courses or shooting in akward positions. I use Mechanix m-pact gloves , I love them. Got any recommendations for a low pro chest rig? I have one from gsdsden dynamics but im wanting one that has molle webbing (or whatever its called). Seems everything is geared towards packing alot instead of keeping a low profile.
Shoot, ya’ don’t need all that stuff.
Magazines just go in back pockets.
Practice doing yer squats and there’s no need for them knee pads.
Gloves are fer wimps, a little blood letting won’t kill ya’.
Makes a good slick gun lube, too.
See how simple life can be.
I’ve looked into rain gear. It’s the only thing I need to get to call myself a mature hunter. It would be nice to compare all the rainwear in actual rain, but that’s not practical because you can’t get consistent testing conditions or precise results that way. Instead, I try to look up some guides or reviews like this:
to get a better understanding. I tried my own little personal experiments too. I wore a few raingear coats under the shower. I wore light-colored clothes underneath to help detect any leakage. I acknowledge that a shower’s water pressure provides a pretty severe test. On the other hand, raingear is subjected to water pressure in real conditions, such as that driven by wind.
Frog Toggs are very popular with the MC crowd.
I bought a hurricane rated storm suit at a boat store long ago.
It protects from water coming from every direction not just down.
Riding back and forth to Florida made that decision a good one
