well, i just got a couple new toys, and will be getting many more in the mail soon. first came my tango down foreward grip. allsome. this thing is solid as a rock, and the recess is perfect for a surefire tapeswitch. as soon as i get some extry batt'ries, i'm putting them inside the grip. i secured the switch with innertube, like i had on my AAC grip, instead of adhesive or velcro. i prefer the streamlined nature of having it completely covered like that. then came my Hatch Nomex balaclava, in sage green. i ordered it from midwest tactical. excellent place with which to do bidness. prompt delivery and no hangups whatsoever with the order. lightfighter is generally the place to go for tactical gear when they've got it in stock, but if you know in advance that they don't, midwest tactical stocks much of the same items (even lightfighter signature gear, like the RAID pack), and is only a couple bucks more expensive. they also stock things that lightfighter doesn't have or doesn't list (like my balaclava). they do only take paypal, check and money order, though. (credit card through paypal). anyways, the other stuff, i ordered from lightfighter, and my rig will hopefully be ready to go by spring break, when i plan on doing either ranch rescue or work with some similar organization. my planned rig: Point Blank Interceptor OTV (2) Special Operations Equipment CQB magpouches, center-high on the vest (2) SOE CQB pouches, one on each side, low-wide on the vest Eagle H-harness (2) SOE Patrol magpouches (2) Tactical Tailor large utility pouches (for canteens, or whatever i need to use them for (1) Gore-tex, fastex-closed USGI buttpack (1) TT Malice III ruck (1) Camelbak Mule, woodland cammo this way, i can ditch the pack, and have all my necessary items. if i want to ditch more weight, i can either ditch the vest or the harness, and take the camelbak if i'm taking the vest. my medical kit (which i'm still deciding on the contents of) will go in the left BDU trouser cargo pocket. most of this stuff is coming from lightfighter, with the exception of the buttpack, which i can get at a gunshow, and the malice clips for the magpouches, which i ordered from tactical tailor, and the mule, which i can get on ebay.
