Starting a new job where I can't carry at work but have a long commute. I'm looking for a good handgun safe that's concealed from view. Driving a Rav4 and carry an M&P9c if that matters. Any suggestions?

I think it's a Bestop. I'm not familiar with the brand and they don't have my model car, but I'll call to see if there's not a better choice.

This is an oldie but goodie.
Choose based on your biome #1.
For hunting, whatever you pick make sure you have that blaze orange hi-viz on over it. You do NOT want to be mistaken for a 4-legger.
I chose Marpat myself years ago before multicam came into being. Milsurp is also easy to locate.

holy fuck I didn't even see the CADPAT for a while. I was so focused on the bunny and then the others.

I got myself some surplus woodland camo (which are supposedly even the kind that soldiers wear for possible chemical attack prone areas, but I have my doubts) since I live in the Puget Sound. Seemed closest to what I've noticed bumbling through the woods, and I've never bought camo before so...*gestures widely*

Note also that CADPAT is darker than most of the others, and the gentleman wearing it is standing in front of what appears to be a partially shadowed depression in the ground. If he were standing ten feet to the right or left he'd stand out almost as badly as the guy in the repro tiger stripe. But also remember that any camouflage pattern printed on cloth is going to be a compromise.

Modern reproduction tiger stripe cammies from companies like Rothco seem generally to be printed with the same four colors as M81 Woodland, and have much too much black in them, plus shades of brown and dark olive drab that are way, way too dark. Look at Bat Guano's posts, >>18110 and >>18111, for images of what real actual period tiger stripe cammies actually looked like. The current copies mostly seem to be trying to shrink the original pattern by 50% or more (why? I don't know, but look at catalogs and note that the pictures of the repro gear show a much smaller, finer, denser pattern of skinnier black horizontal stripes than the originals). Between the smaller scale pattern elements and the much darker colors, trying to reproduce that pattern with the four colors of M81 Woodland results in a pattern that "blobs out" into muddy brownish greenish almost-black from more than fifty meters away, as you see in the picture. It could be much worse but there are better patterns out there.

If they were going to redesign the pattern anyway they might as well have put more khaki in it--well, really, the lightest color in some newly printed M81 Woodland, the "tan," is almost exactly the same shade as some companies' "coyote brown" or "flat dark earth," and the brown and green are nearly black. To work with the four colors from Woodland, it needs wider stripes of tan around the black stripes, for more of a disruptive effect. It might work better with the four colors from Green Dominant ERDL, or even from DPM, with its lighter green and khaki providing more contrast and breaking up the outline a bit better.

And yes, the biome in which you will use it is the determining factor. UCP only works well in very specific environments, for example.

I am given to understand, if I may be slightly more serious, that various of the US military's spec-ops units have been for the past decade or longer been using uniforms and web gear made in various civvie deer-hunting patterns for specific circumstances and specific environments. They have used various patterns created by Mossy Oak, Realtree, and

And remember to keep your guns and powder dry.
Container, Individual, Aerial delivery, Rifle, 1st pattern, (Rigger Modified)
These are the cases also known as the "Modified 1st pattern Griswold bag". Details include authentic snap and grommet closure, cloth loops and snap, interior construction, snap hook and webbing hanger, and military nomenclature ink stamp. Our cases are made slightly longer to fully and comfortably fit the disassembled M1 rifle inside without stretching the canvas. It includes a release cord to close the case. We used custom woven white harness webbing that includes the black ticking with a milspec harness snap hook. The canvas used is the durable and authentic cotton duck in the Od#3 shade. In this rigger-made version we take our standard model container and modify it with the addition of three lift-the-dot tabs to close the container instead of using the lacing closure. This modification was most commonly made by the airborne units fighting in the Southern France campaign. http://www.wwiiimpressions.com/riggershop.htm

yes i do and i love it, not much more to say though its nice quality, but it should be for the price, it is super convenient that it folds up nice and small in its own attached pouch.

if you like ponchos, i would definitely say get this one its the best i have ever owned.

Since AR500 can't unfuck its shipping/order department, I have 350+ to spend on armor unless they miraculously put a carrier and plates on my doorstep by monday, I need alternatives. I sent them an email saying I either want my money back now, or they can send me the plates I order and another of their cheapest level 3 carrier packages.

Currently running a grey ghost carrier, but it's been without armor since fucking beginning of september. Give me good and reliable places to get some shit.

I ended up selling my banshee on ebay and buying a Ferro Concepts Slickster from The Great White North. A little less overt but has a little less working space than something like a banshee, but scale-able from plates only under a cover shirt to a light magazine/essentials loadout to pairing with a chest rig for the full package.

For something with a little more space to work with from the start, I'd look at Beez Combat Systems or Mayflower for a good budget option.

Since I know there are some ham radio operators/people familiar with radio tech on here, what's the deal with the 30-87 mhz frequencies used by SINCGARS? From reading ham radio stuff I understand that the low-VHF frequencies like 6m and 10m have extremely variable performance, which I'd imagine would not be desirable for military operations, so why use them for a tactical radio instead of another more stable frequency range?

>6m and 10m have extremely variable performance

You got that right. But for long distance.

They have very sporadic long distance performance. On summer days, the E-layer of the ionosphere well, ionizes, and then skips are possible. I think the farthest I got on 6m was Enid, Oklahoma, from basically Casa Grande, AZ.

Same goes for 10m. Farthest was North Dakota on E-layer.

However, despite 10m being HF, they both act like regular VHF. Good for local ground-wave stuff, and plenty stable. I could reliably hear the 'local' 10m repeater, about 50 miles away.

I have a feeling the use of these bands dates back to WWII, when the upper end of the VHF spectrum wasn't all that practical for good cheap day-to-day comms.

Here's a thread I've been meaning to make for a while.

What are the best ways to carry for hiking and camping? Obviously due to the nature of the activity the gear overlaps with military and hunting stuff, but I've actually been trying to get away from overtly tactical or modern military looking gear at least for casual jaunts. For deeper backwoods trips aesthetics is immaterial.

Currently, I just use my regular G-code OSH holster for my Glock 20. The drawbacks of this are:

1. No retention
2. Belt positioning interferes with hip straps for packs
3. No concealment
4. No room in holster for weapon light

The pros are if I did need to draw it would be fast and very similar to my regular CC and competition muscle memory.

Ideally, I'd like a solution that allows for a reasonable degree of retention, like maybe a flap as you'd see on a hunting holster. Arranged in a way that doesn't interfere with packs, and can fit the TLR-2 G I just ordered.

I own one of the Hill People gear chest pouches and I like it. Went winter camping last weekend and I packed the non-freezable things in it (batteries, water filter, etc.), snacks, map and gun.

Only downside is in very cold weather if you're layering on and off your coat, you end up with your outer layer covering it so if you don't have slack the coat might be tight (mine wasn't). For most of the hike or in better weather it'll be sitting on the outside where you can readily get to useful kit. I slept with it in the bag to keep the critical things above freezing and it did not get in the way.

Check the dimensions before ordering if you're getting one of the smaller versions. My M&P9c fits comfortably in the original one, but the smaller ones it'd be very tight.

Safariland ALS are outstanding for a retention holster, allow for a very natural draw. Utilizing the QLS, you could have one on your belt, another woven through molle webbing on a pack, or attached somehow inside the pack (not having a gun flopping around in a bag is good), I've even seem some people put them in their cars to be able to pop the gun off their hip and stick it under the dash.

KT-Mech does an interesting molded kydex but with a spring loaded retention hood as well as the usual friction retention, they would be able to accommodate a Glock 20/TLR-2.

And when Raven Concealment takes orders again, they do actually have a retention option that utilizes a Pull The Dot strap (which are nifty little things).
