Gone full JPC boner retard, all my kit bar my diddy dump pouch is on it. M4 double pouch, double viper pistol mag pouch. Even my pistol holster on the LEFT side, yeah cross draw baby.... Get on my level bitches!
Also removed the plates, so much easier to get on and off without undoing everything. Will savage a bedroll tomorrow to give it back some of its form. Tis a bit floppy now, as is the JPC. 🤗
Jesus, SLR? 80's?
I got to play with an SLR during my trade training, that's as close to that era as I got... you were patching people up when momma was still wiping my ass, lmao. I was an Armourer, REME, 2005-2010.
Didn't spend much time with RAMC mob but the few encounters were good... And memorable. Almost as good for morale as a big bag of harribo and always fun watching them deny DS the opportunity to send crows through a river crossing in near freezing temps during an exercise we played enemy for.
iirc it used to be using the "brace" as a stock was a no no, although apparently they've changed that.
it's a bit like the untwisted rifling they brought out to skirt that law- no twist means it's not a rifle (ergo not an sbr) and no smoothbore means not a shotgun (so not a short barreled shotgun either). all you sacrifice for this wondrous loophole that lets you have a proper folding stock and a short barrel is the ability to hit anything.
it really makes a mockery of what little gun related legislation america has, just as ridiculous as the bump-fire stocks and electric gloves for getting around full auto legislation.
Literally bought my UMP last week. It's a G&G with suppressor. It's a quick fit and release one. It has a tight bore barrel that goes up to the end (or there abouts) of the suppressor. So it can be done.
it's a stupid technicality in US law, you can own a 'pistol' with a short barrel no problem, so instead of having a stock on the buffer tube they have a brace instead, it's designed to be strapped around your forearm (not even joking!) but works perfectly well as something to put in your shoulder.
