Well, pimping ain't easy but I saved up enough to buy my kit to run at Milcopp.
HSGI AO chest rig, added the shoulder pads, running it with 4 double rifle tacos
HSGI belt rig with three pistol/rifle tacos (that originally came on the AO, didn't like pistol mags on my chest), plus one single pistol taco. Still figuring out where I like the length, hence the floppy bit not tucked back in.
Bladetech DO Holster for the Sig
HSGI low pro blowout kit
Maxped rolly polly that I had around for the dump pouch.
Camelback carrier that I stuck a Source 2L into (btw, I might have to completely switch to source bladders in all my bags, that thing is nice)
Notes: Everything in multicam because why the fuck not? Also because that Ewok Atac camo wasn't available.
The holster kind of freaks me out with the barrel pointing directly into my leg, might try different mounting hardware to maybe ease up on that a bit. Everything fits good running around the house, I'll find out for sure the hard way in Missouri
Separate hydration carrier seemed the way to go; it ain't perfect but should function. I'm not running and gunning without easy hydration in MO humidity after living in Denver for 10 years. Lived in Iowa for 25 years and summers are a mofo. Didn't really see the need for a built in one though. The Bravo Co chest rig was pretty even in my mind with the HSGI, but I went this route because I could customize the HSGI pouch-wise the way I wanted. We'll see how she flies.
Taco pouches seem really tight despite me prying on them etc. Concerned that I'm going to fumble fuck just about every reload until they are broken in.
Want a knife, but not sure where to mount it. Right behind the holster (say holster is at 3, knife would be 4) doesn't seem accessible with the pistol in the holster. Also hemming and hawing over Esee 3 or 4...life is hard.
Just for fun, here's my rifle I'm bringing to class. BCM socom upper and buis, magpul plastic, spikes complete lower, vtac sling that I got set up right(I'll bring bandaids for my neck, Dave). Light is half assed, but it's what I have atm.
