It's 49, and if you're trying to make your own armor, MAKE SURE YOU WATERPROOF IT. Kevlar piles, folds, and degrades FAST. As far as body armor goes, if you want a good concealable vest, look up Second-Chance. I have one, and I wear it when I'm off duty and traveling; it's pretty light and as long as you get a good fit it can feel like a second skin once you get used to it. If you're going for tactical armor for whatever reason, I can recommend the Interceptor system (the one in the avatar photo) by Point Blank, as well as the MTV that replaced it (not sure if it's the same manufacturer/distributor. I can personally attest that they'll catch multiple 7.62x39mm rounds as long as you have the trauma plates inserted (I was able to successfully engage the guy that hit me after crawled my @$$ off the ground), which you'd probably be interested in anyway; if you're wearing a tactical armor vest, things have gone way past extreme already. I've heard good things about Dragonskin, and a couple of my buddies bought it, but they never took any impacts besides shrapnel while wearing it, so I can't say anything about how it performs ballistically. Hope some of that helps.

It's not all wishful thinking. Take my example: some of us have the means, money, and wherewithal to abscond and acquire weapons and equipment beyond the normal scope of what you would expect the average American to possess. It's not hard to make friends with an ammo driver and then slip a few bills someone's way to make sure some paperwork gets fudged. It's also not that difficult to accumulate more than a career or two worth's issue of gear, and send it home. And as far as military units go, some of us are lucky enough to be in a unit that pretty much moves and shakes its own T/O and have the privilege of receiving whatever gear we request within the bounds of reason. Some units play fast and loose with the "rules," and realize that what's on a T/O roster isn't always what it takes to get the job done. It helps when you have commanders that have a greater than usual share of common sense. And it helps to be a friggin' ninja, so that you can Strategically Transport Equipment to Alternate Locations. Besides, not counting stuff like Abrams MBTs, and your Mjolnir Mk. VI Powered Armor (which has the slight disadvantage of not existing in the first place), there's not a whole lot of stuff on here that a dogged citizen willing to fill out the appropriate paperwork can't get ahold of LEGALLY.

Exactly. I work for a PMC so I can get my hands on just about anything, within reason. And as for me using the REC7 I have actualy met Ronnie Barret, he is a good man, and I could more than likely gget my hands on a REC7. I kept my list as realistic as I could.

(actualy , it was closer to two hundred pound)

and I started with a hand dolly / hand truck .

the Idea being , look like something common , a gardener .
the idea of running around like a uniformed soldier in a combat zone is a very fast way of getting shot .

I want to look harmless , common , and helppless .

when you look into the garbage can , you see things that make you dismiss what you see .

the steel bar is to open doors , car windows , or open chain'd and locked fences ...
it can also be used silently , to stop a person swiftly .

nothing I said in my load out requires govermental support or special access .

nothing I said would call attention to me if I walked down the street today , or in a free fire war zone ...

deception , illusion , misdirection ...

killing people is not that hard when your getting shot at .
survival in a street when your not a member of a militia or a national guard unit is something else .

I want to look like something common and unremarkable , from 1mile away , or 3 inch's away .

the reason so much ammo.. what I have is all I will have , there is not going to be support , supply depots , or a place resupply .

a shopping cart would work , except , homeless refuguee and street people will not be treated as well as a a gardener who has a story .

I can move togather or move alone , support or retreat , disappear in the shadows or be involved ...

with my load out , I choice who I am ....

instead of camo , body armor , helmet , side arm and rocket propelled grenades .

who is more likly to get sniped , camo and helmet , or a gardener with a can full of gardeners tools ?

I reccommend those of you who say "I wouldnt ever kill someone..." watch The Colony on discovery channel. That show is filled with flower pickin' college educated hippy types who thought that violence would get you nowhere and you can talk your way out of anything... They now (after being "attacked" by marauders) realize that not everyone wants to hear what you have to say! Really worth a watch!

Im very curious about the people wanting to dress up as gardeners...

If I saw you walking around with gardening tools and a straw hat i would probably-

1.Follow you to your house.
2.Kill you anyways.
3.Pillage any stored goods you may have stocked.

My loadout would be exactly what I own (im a realist).

-Evil Black Rifle
-Striker fired .40 cal hi-cap pistol

Nope...dont need to worry about mud and sand because I wont be putting my rifle in mud and sand. Semi auto is the way to go because ammo is precious and im not a pray and spray terrorist. Eventually ill end up making friends with a guy that owns a long range rifle and we can work in tandem.

I assume that this "Loadout" forum was a semi serious "what would you really take with you?"

If not I would take my full compliment of Create-a-Class from COD:WAW (ray gun included cause thats 1 shot kills!)

Yeah, pretty much.

If I had to consider what I can get my hands on within 24 hours (through any means necessary), I'd probably be wearing some black BDU uniform, civilian tactical/ballistic armor, a Remington M870 and Weatherby 30-06, and maybe a cheap 9mm if I manage to disable some cop.

Why are you carrying all of that crap for. All you need is Chuck Norris.

You don't seem to understand. He uses Chuck Norris to fight against himself, just to make the fight fair against the enemy!

Even then, it's still a slaughter.

One word.

Killdozer.

Four Words.

Bag of mixed nuts.

All of you guys are totally screwed and I am the new king!

Wait, how do I get out of this thing? Nooooo, its like the Twilight Zone!

But seriously I am going for what the White Death had, assuming we are in winter.

"Simo Haya, the White Death,did. He was a finnish sniper in the Winter War between Finland and the U.S.S.R. He used a unscoped moison nagant rifle. He preferred the use of iron sights over a scope because it created far less of a target for enemy sharpshooters. He has around 500 kills over a span of 100 days, averaging 5 kills a day in the sparse daylight of Finland. He was operating in temperatures between -4 to -40 f. He also got 200 kills with an SMG as well. He is credited with being the most effective sniper in the history of warfare as well."

So you see how camping is the way to get your kills up.

i agree with the no scope rifle. i have far greater faith in my aim when staring down the iron sights, moving the "nose" swiftly across the view, or ready to butt an attacker nearby. but i agree mostly with being super harmless, like a dust particle that floats through space like Brownian motion on a slide beneath a microscope.

A Davey Crockett, for those who dont know what it is,
It was made just after world war 2 by Britian (i think)
it was a Nuclear recoilless rifle which shot a mini nuke,
with a blast radius bigger then then the distance it was shot from


But back to reality, id watch all the rambo films (ok maybe not #3 :lol

commando & predator, and learn from the best

Davy Crockett was developed by the US in the early '60s. It's range was 2.5km+ and even after you fire it, the warhead deploys a parachute to allow more time to seek shelter.

Actually you're the troll here.

This thread clearly asked for opinions on weaponry, and you trolled your way in with a "all killing is evil" style statement, which you have now followed up with an ad hominem insult to every American calling us all less civilized than New Zealanders.

I suggest you read this link and get the hell out of this thread.

In anything to do with combat I tend to think that being a purist is the way. The use of iron sight is just more classy. It would be interesting to pit the White Death and his setup against a modern sniper. Although its hard to say if any modern tech would have helped the Russians at that time. I mean, after he killed the counter snipers they just started shelling wherever they thought he was.

Some of you better take a long hard look at your "loadout" because if you carry all of that your enemy won't have to shoot you; you'll keel over from exhaustion. Here is my "Katrina" load for static defense and short-range patrol.

Ak-47 (semiauto) with Eotech 552 and surefire nitrolon. 6+1 30 rd mags
Glock 22 4+1 15 rd mags
Cold steel GI Tanto in spec ops "combat master" sheath (because the one that comes with it blows)

Diamondback Tactical Fast Attack plate carrier w/cummerbund. Add 2x lvl III standalone rifle plates.

Pasgt lvl IIIa kevlar helmet

Blowout/trauma IFAK kit on Dback tact. tearaway platform

Emdom mag dump pouch

Camelbak 3L carrier

Frs radio

10-30x monocular

1AA led flashlight w/red filter

Some other stuff..but the point is that all of this stuff is HEAVY! If you're overloaded you can't move. If you can't move you can't fight. If you can't fight then you're dead.

More later when I get off of work

Since I know its a suicide mission I would confine myself to the following..
[yes they are real weapons but not all are regular issue!]

Self reinforcement: legal stimulants gallore!
Dutch Courage anyone?


Amament: Davey Crocket. 1 round fired at the massed enemy.

Vehical: any robust motorized transport that will quikly take me to the heart of the decimated enemy. Probably a 4WD or similar large and rugged vhcl or failing that a dirtbike motorcycle!

2ndry weapon: Chest strapped Nuclear demolition charge set on deadman trigger!

So 1st I fire the DC in the general direction of the massed enemy some 3km away and instantly upon its detonation I leap upon my vhcl of choice and fang as fast as I can TOWARDS ground ZERO! Upon arrival to ground Zero I would try to penetrate as deep into enemy ranks befor kamakazi'ing myself screaming "One day all you @#%&$ will be dead and I'm enjoying that fact right now! Let there be light!" instantly followed by a little star dawning upon the face of the earth!
