    Penguin, I really like your gear setup.  I'm interested in the two piece MAV myself now.  For a couple of reasons.

    -I thought about going to a MOLLE/war/battle/whatever, hooyah belt and attaching the holster to that.  The problem with this is incompatibility with backpacks.  Any serious outdoor backpack has a waist strap, and in my experience you're advised to make use of it.  Having a bunch of gear and pouches and holsters around your belly makes this problematic.

    -I want to have my gear separate from my armor, so I can switch kit for different weapon systems.

    -The two piece MAV doesn't have anything right on your belly, which will help shooting from the prone.

    -It can hold 6-8 .308 magazine pouches, a medical kit, and reloads for the sidearm.  That's about all you need, really.  Since it doesn't have anything in the middle or on the chest (no two-piece MAV bib), my sidearm reload pouch is going to have to go to the left side, next to the rifle mag pouches.  A little farther back than I prefer but no big deal.  I think my custom, Retro Tactical 6x stacked speedloader pouch will fit back there.  I can rig up a drop leg for the gun, easy enough, to get it out of the way of pack waist straps.

    Okay not a rifle but I use it like one with slugs as my primary round and a few Federal Flight Control 00 Buck along for the ride on the side saddle. This is my Go To home defense weapon. I can sling the bandoleer across the chest bandido-style but with seven in the tube, six on the side saddle and five on the buttstock carrier, I should have enough on or in the blaster to grab and go.

    It has the stock Remington rifle sights and I agree with George in the Crusader shotgun video when he extols the open rifle sights on the 870.

    I am a shotgun guy first and foremost and, though I have an issued AR at work, I carry the issued 870 up front as my work Go To long gun.

    I need to replace the light set up with an LED bulb. I think SureFire makes a retro fit LED for this forearm...Harm, what say you? Do they?

    My only other mod will be one of those Speedfeed stocks like on the Crusader shotguns or maybe an M4 collapsible.

    I bought this baby back in 1992 when I worked at Hendersonville PD. HPD only had armory issued High Standards (good guns but soooooo old and beat to hell) that we checked in and out daily. I carried this 870 for four years until I was hired by Cherokee.



    The hawk is for tucking into my belt if I have time to don the cargo shorts I have staged by the bed.

    Ive always had brass up on the side saddle because I roll the weapon to the left so the ejection port faces up and I drop it in. Ive done the chamber reload from underneath before but I just like the other way better. I pull the round up out of the side saddle and slap it in then I reload the mag tube as I get to it. Ive reloaded to the chamber three times in a row on combat course shoots to no ill effect.

    Brass points up on the buttstock carrier to keep it from falling out as easily.

    The AR is a BCM 16 inch carbine upper on a Grizzly LAR lower. I just stuffed a CMC trigger in it and love the thing! Awesome piece of hardware. The SIG is their 556 patrol with an aimpoint comp ML-3 on it. The SCAR is just plain cool - I have yet to let anyone run it who isnt grinning like a kid in a candy store when they are done.

    The FOG (fat old guy) is me. The rifle on the range table is my 6920. If things ever get bad enough, thats the go-to gun.

    Apologies go out to sarge- I dont own the ultimate firearms backdrop-a piano, so I had to use the kitchen floor ( actually I did think the piano was a nice touch). And also, would someone PLEASE ban penguin so he will quit posting pics of that %[email protected]*&^%$# PKM and making me jealous :bash

    Three generations of FN's. To be fair and honest, the FAL is not an FN, just a crappy DSA copy, but I'm good with that ;)

    I posted this one here before, but it always makes me smile.

    The top one is a Ruger PC-9, no longer in production, complete with ridiculous unreliable high cap magazine. The AK is a pre-89 import ban polytech underfolder, which means its is 100% chinese and legal (gotta love the spike bayonet). I paid a small fortune for it about the same time komerade klinton was signing his idiotic assault weapons ban. The mini-14 is a factory mid 80's side folder (admit it, you now have the A-team theme song stuck in your head- sorry.....). Complete with Ruger factory high cap, good old Bill is probably rolling over in his grave knowing a simple unworthy civilian owns it. The Uzi on the bottom is one of the last vector semi's built on an IMI reciever. They ran out right after I got this one. Bought it from from the factory since it is only a few miles from where I live.  Not very reliable even after going back to them for repairs, but it is fun to shoot.

    I thought I hit 4/10 rams, but the official score spreadsheet says I actually hit 2/10.  :hide
    It was iron sights, what can I say.  Also, I had never shot past 200yd before that.  In a way, I'm still surprised I hit anything at 550yds.

    I placed middle of the pack (for my first time in a silhouette match) in the M-1 category.

    Right now, a state senator from SF wants to go ahead and ban all of these, actually.

       I'll post some pictures of my guns after awhile...I'm slow taking pictures.  Plus I'm always changing stuff on them  ;)

      Some mighty fine guns here.   Like FNC's setup, FAL, FNC and SCAR......

    The guy who sold me the mini-14 side folder said it came out of California. There was a point in time where you guys could own this stuff. Its very sad because California is a beautiful state. My wife has family there, and we seem to end up at Disneyland at least every other year. I know there are a lot of good people there- its a shame you don't outnumber the anti-freedom bunch who seem to run the show. Its weird, whenever I'm there I always feel naked, I'm so used to having a kimber tucked into an SOB rig. Helps me to not take things for granted. Hope you guys can take some of it (or all of it) back someday FMJ.

    I'm willing to bet he sold it to you due to the then-impending AWB some years ago.


    And to think that the AR-15 is a product of the Golden State.

    Good point.
    Use it how you want to train with it.
    Ever thought of using competition belt mounted shell carriers instead?
    I've been thinking about it so when things are better I might just try it out and see how it goes.

    My issued Colt AR-15A3. I've had it 12 years now. Still runs great but I prefer my shotgun so it rides in a case in the cargo area. As discussed in Nightcrawler's Gear Snobbery post, I have modified accumulated gear here too. I have a rigged but secure ACU pattern mag pouch off an old SWAT vest as my stock mag carrier


    Issued 870 with 14" barrel. PD badge engraved on receiver. Recoil reducing Knoxx stock with additional side saddle.
    I would have prefered the 18" barrel so we could have more mag capacity but once again our Admin pukes got gee whizzed by a slick salesman. Otherwise it runs great but since its a 14" model, it can't be given as a presentation gift upon retirement, more's the pity. Rust looking dot on Wilson Combat rear sight is orange nailpolish to mark position in case any one f's with it. Don't ask but sight fluffing has happened more than once around here.
    Front sights on all my weapons are bright orange. See the flash of orange, BOOM!.


    4 round side saddle so serial number can be exposed.
    Simple strap sling on all my long guns

    That is sweet, Sarge!
    Hope someday the Mossberg 500A I own can look as intimidating.
    Speaking of barrels. Can't you just swap out the barrel and add a tube extension and spring?
    Or does it have to stay stock for the beany counters?

    Hey, my 500A has some serious mods that can be done to it.
    Just thought since an 870 is so widely used and loved as well....made sense to me.
    Just keep the parts to bring it back to stock when you turn it in.
    The beany's will say that you took great care of it and pat you on the head for being a good boy. LOL!

    My rebarreled K-98 Mauser with Timney target trigger.  This was brought back from the war by the uncle of the old fellow who built it.  It's now chambered in .30-06  It's shot under MOA at 100 yards with 150 grain bullets (and with my eyes, I can guarantee it's all the gun, not me), and I'm now working 165 grain loads.  Should shoot even tighter.

    Also, my Mannlicher stocked .30 Carbine.  And, no, I didn't butcher up an original.  Someone else did and I ended up with it.  It does get lots of comments though.
