The top options, depending on mission, IMO, are Crye LV-MBAV, JPC, or AVS First Spear Strandhogg, maritime assaulters, and low vis Spiritus LV-119 Velocity Scarab Ferro FCPC V5

Ferro has one very similar to the lv119

That’s a good capability @_Kilo_. We had a mission requirement that was similar, to the point that the MP5 was *too big* to fit in the bags. (We didn’t have K’s, they would have fit)

Dropped the idea on cf barrels. There's just not enough data on durability and having vent holes sounds like it'd take away from the particular strength cf has due to woven fibers. Still kicking around various ideas though, at least just for the fun of it. While i live in an urban area, my state is almost completely comprised of rolling plains, some forests, and some small mountains. Very very open outside of cities.

Sorta thinking about large frame rifles at the moment. My 16" ar will hit a dinner plate as far as the round holds supersonic speeds
Message permalink: 706612090236043374
There seems to be tons of fancy calibers but right now I'm thinking maybe 308 because it's available and my dad has hand loading equipment he said I could use when i visit
Message permalink: 706612478716674129
I figured if I ever do a battle rifle, I'd go with .308 for the same reasons as far as ammo availability.

Outside of the city, we've got a ton of areas where you can see until the earth's curvature as long as you're on one of the hills. I've got a lot to learn about that though. Never bothered shooting past 600 yards before

Message permalink: 706614499876012073
It kinda depends. The state average is 15-20 mph but it goes way over that decently often. At least it's known so much for being windy that it's mentioned in the state song
Message permalink: 706614727148568696
I'm annoyed, was gonna get the LV-119, but Spiritus has sold out of all of them.
Message permalink: 706616654083260416
They're almost always sold out. You just kinda have to keep an eye out. Trex arms also carries them, typically pre built instead of a la carte

Both 308 and 6.5 are looking pretty good. I'm a bit torn as the 6.5 seems to perform a bit better but the 308 has a bit more support and better barrel life

Having cut a lot of pvc, the cutters are definitely a good investment. They're cheap too.

@Crye Salesman what are you using the chem lights for?

This isn’t something I typically do, but I’m lost. I don’t normally ask for help because I know quite a bit about gear. But I’m trying to decide whether I should invest into a better PC (I’m running Condor) or get my medical backpack squared away.

> @Crye Salesman what are you using the chem lights for? @Ballsdini Marking doorways, rooms that are cleared or not, casualty marking, there’s a variety of uses depending on your units SOPs.
Message permalink: 706639058813714536
@[LA] Zoomer Medi/k/ I suspect that's what they're for but there are other applications that require large chem lights. Blue Force Gear makes a mag-sized small chem light dispenser that holds a bunch of tiny ones. You just flick them off the top like unloading a mag. Much more compact, lighter, can carry way more, and aren't nearly as conspicuous. Let me find the link...
