You can have a repair kit and warranty but little good those do in the heat of the moment when something fails right when you need it most.
Doesn’t always have to be expensive either; mil surplus can be decent for cheap, depending.
Way to go! *good*

Great bread-n-butter video. Hope it saves people time and money iterating through their kit setups. I spent too much time and money on that journey not knowing wtf I was doing in the beginning.
Btw, check if your thumbnail graphics editing program has a stroke, drop shadow, or outline setting for the font. Adding that will make the yellow font…[Read more]

This vid brought up some critical points I hadn’t considered. Thanks.
Well it’s cool seeing what others are running.
I picked up a high-cut helmet made by United Shield, a British company.
Replaced straps with an Ops Core H-Nape, $30 from eBay.
Shimmed the shroud with JB Weld for a custom fit to my Rhino II NVG mount. No wobble.
I run my ear…[Read more]
IMO, going out of your way to purchase or request gear to review on an ongoing basis shouldn’t really be necessary.
What you have on hand could suffice because:
1) you’re already personally familiar with it and therefore have more to say about it,
2) for your own reasons you occasionally buy new things anyway, so you’ll periodically have…[Read more]

I picked up the PlateMinus during their last sale. Great option if you’re not wearing side plates and want silent donning-doffing thanks to the polymer side buckle straps, which are easy to adjust and have an elastic section. Comfortable for a non-padded PC and is made of extremely tough material with tight stitching and stretchy Tweave for the…[Read more]

Watched the whole thing recently. Not a waste of time. Thought-provoking 4+ hours with some truly hilarious moments. At times they go beyond politics and into cosmic conspiracy territory, which if you’ve researched that stuff make sense, and if not at least it’s entertaining.
That would be epic. Infowars and Mike Adams (via naturalnews.com)…[Read more]

So, censoring your post because of “people skills” while allowing (((trolls))) to post freely? Sounds like a bullshit excuse to conceal a deeper motive. I used to run a forum and became familiar with the kind of social politics that goes on. That kind of response above sounds like someone who privately likes what you do but must optically side…[Read more]
Thanks for tip, just ordered it and also picked up Jocko’s “Way of the Warrior Kid” for my nephew.
Well that’s pretty cool. I’d buy every single one. So DVD-only then, no online digital streaming sales, right? Vimeo has a digital distribution package for that if the need arises.
Came across Contact! on Amazon and read it, then picked up Patriot Dawn and Patriot Rising. Prior to that, would periodically come across an MVT blog article relevant to something I was looking up in a search engine pertaining to gear and tactics. So, books and blog mainly.
IG and FB, their utility could be relegated to merely broadcasting the…[Read more]
Really looking forward to this as well. Essential class considering how much more likely you are to ever use a pistol defensively vs. an offensive action with a carbine. And in a slow SHTF situation or as part of an underground I would think you’d only be able to carry a weapon…[Read more]
TC replied to the topic Student Review: Combat Leader Course (CLC) October 2018: Dan M in the forum Class Reviews 7 months, 3 weeks ago
I originally thought on my way into the class that the majority of the learning would happen when it was my turn to plan and lead a mission. I was very mistaken on this. On each mission, regardless of my assignment I had a huge opportunity to learn.
Same here, the amount of learning all throughout was massive. That means even if someone signs…[Read more]
Thanks, will pick this up. The source material is hard to read so having a modern English version is convenient.
I’ve done some comparative research between Norse, Celtic, Indian, and Persian mythology. The parallels are fascinating. Their roots trace back to the proto-Indo-Europeans (PIE), i.e. the ancient mariners and megalith builders. It was…[Read more]
OPFOR put up a good fight. Thank you for making CLC awesome.
