Leg mounted, No one grabs it, and I can't forget it. I also keep my cell phone and cords in it.

How about I post a few pics ?
Do it! I'm using an M17 gas mask bag as a tablet case, and a Russian one to hole a small first aid kit.

Re: Deadly H7N9 Bird Flu Outbreak in China

Do we even have the capability to contain this if it goes human to human? And can we produce vaccines fast enough to be useful?

Re: M1945 Combat pack system

I might be incorrectly remembering something on the old mountain rucksack. Just something I seem to remember.

Re: Deadly H7N9 Bird Flu Outbreak in China

Remember that this, unlike the regular flu, I'd not transmitted human to human. It's killed 22 people with just bird to human contact. If it goes human to human, we have a serious problem. 20 percent fatality rate is not good

Re: Popular Mechanics article about me

Holy crap, and you're that slingshot dude? You have made some incredible designs, and bringing awareness to a plight such as AIDS and other STDs through humor is noble. Plus you got to build another slingshot out of it.

Re: Deadly H7N9 Bird Flu Outbreak in China

I'm in one of those cities that would be hit first by a human to human mutation. It's also something for which I can't completely prepare for. With a weakened immune system, I'm at high risk, and if H7N9 goes pandemic I have but a few options. Double up on all medications as quantity allows, load up...

Re: M1945 Combat pack system

Now IIRC, some packs had an integrated sling of sorts for the M1 Garand. Does the M1945 have anything like this?

Seattle, WA. Well, technically Kirkland but nobody has a damn clue where that is. So we just say Seattle. One of these days I'll update my profile. Maybe.

Came here to figure out where the hell these countless damn straps go on my M1945 combat pack, stayed for the water filtration discussion, and spent hours reading the fixed blade threads. And now it's 01:12 and is have to be up for work with not nearly enough time to sleep. Ooh, that thread looks fu...

Re: M1945 Combat pack system

Just picked up a complete set, with the packs dated 51 and the suspenders vietnam era. A huge thanks to everyone that posted pictures. This pack is a eldritch nightmare of non euclidian straps, pocket dimensions, and belts that want to sit up on my chest. But thanks to you guys I got it working. I'l...
