Just joshin y'all, I don't care about cammo.

Me, personally? I hate wearing it. But being in the military and wearing it day in, day out, has made me jaded against tactical sh*t. The only cammo gear I own is for the military. I haven't bought a single piece that isn't for use in uniform.
I don't know if it's justifying it but it is the Ky state flag...I think
It's kind of funny really. I hadn't looked at most camo as tacti-cool. It's just...there....

Can camo cargo shorts be tacti-cool? I guess, but all those pockets do come in handy
Now I"m off to get into my gear and load up a few Glocks, and several of those magazine clips with exploding hollow points. I need to go to the store to get my wife tampons..Has anyone seen my aviator shades? Those lights in the 7-11 are bright.

Sir, you really should wait for backup. Perhaps a friend with an AR at least.

Jeans and button up shirts, untucked, sleeves rolled up. That's me. No camo at all. No military clothes. Nothing 'cowboy'. Nothing hip-hop. No 'shoot me first' vests. I don't hunt. No MMA shirts (although I'm a Jiu-Jitsu student). No Harley stuff, skulls, or tats everywhere. I'm so plain you'd never notice me, but I've got the Sig or Steyr in an OWB holster and a Spyderco in the pocket. Also a spare mag. I've got an AR and AK but shoot more skeet than anything. I do kind of advertise that. I think it's cool and want more people to take it up. Shotguns and clays are awesome.

My costume???


Ratty worn out jeans, tie dye or grateful dead tee shirts, goofy paisley doo rag and Red Wing leather boots. My rifles are kind of crazy colored as well.

Pretty much the same here, jeans button or polo shirt mine are tucked in though the nuns sorta beat that into me, well not really sorta they DID beat that into me lol. My version of camo is to blend in to my surroundings, since I rarely go into the woods I try to go unnoticed where I am at. I will even put on a suit and tie if the situation calls for it. Usually when somebody is getting " hatched, matched, or dispatched" as my dad used to say.

I haven't shot much skeet but have shot a lot of trap over the years. Before I was married I shot 2-3 times a week.

I wear earth tones for the most part. Have a couple of pairs of old woodland camo surplus pants that I got for free. They are really handy because they have lots of pockets. Usually wear them working around the property or out in the boonies. Sometimes you run across a pot grow site and it is a good idea to blend in (and carry). Don't tend to wear it much in town though. I do have an AR and a few Glocks, but the majority of my collection is in revolvers (handguns) and wood with blued steel for rifles, many of which are older than I am. I am known to be a gun enthusiast but I don't think many people would consider me to be a "nut". Though the Sheriff's deputies have told me that they will be passing by my place if they are ever ordered to confiscate firearms. They said they weren't up for that kind of discussion. Of course this was right after they said that they knew where to go for backup in my neighborhood and I replied by telling them it depends on what they were here for.
