Well.. let's kick this off..

Anyone have any good pics or references of original military load bearing gear and equipment used for the FAL?

I'd like to have a nice reference in here for the original military goodies.

We'll try this out and see if there's enough interest to warrant a separate forum to discuss gear (military / surplus as well as modern stuff) or not.

Hi, My name is Jen, and I'm a gear addict :D

You're a gear addict? Hell, I bought a LBV from you last year but still felt compelled to buy a Brit assalult vest from Caddy last month. I've got problems. don't I?

cliffy: I still have an extra one of those LBV's laying around here somewhere, along with 3 different vests, a chest harness rig and God only knows what else.

It all started with my Dad's old USMC gear and well.. became somewhat of an obsession you could say.

Yep, gear addict here :biggrin:

I'm spending all my beer money buying tailor-made gear before I leave Korea in 30 days.
I got Chest Rigs for $20 a piece
drop-leg holster for $17
and a really well-made double rifle case for $50
I've got one more trip to the shop before I get my stuff shipped :wink:
