    It has been said, I think by a woman first "The Only Thing that Separates Us from the Animals Is Our Ability to Accessorize.

    Well a woman dolling up for a date has nothing on "Gun Guy" going to the range. went to a local outdoor range,Usery, and it was amazing.

    Grown men were on fashion patrol!! Tactical pants with shooters button up shirt. High dollar range bag from their favorite gun makers web sight. shooting gloves for a .25!! I saw it!

    Also, for the AR fan base it seems that slings are the bees knees! Slings that let em hang at the ready for any position on the clock. I think someone said they're 3 point sling or something like that. I'm not sure.

    Also saw a lot of special blacked out boots. Also popular are exotic holsters. Like fake or not I'm not sure, but looks like alligator, sting ray, all kinds of things.OH! big now are those sonic head phones with dials and what not. what ever happened to just ear plugs then muffs on top? I guess it just doesn't look cool enough.

    If ever the SHTF, do yourself a favor and keep your head very low around "gun guy"

    Is he? :confused:

    I have electronic, noise cancelling earmuffs for me and my girl. It makes educational instruction easier.

    I have holsters in Kydex, three types of leather and one rare animal skin.

    Suddenly I am a mall ninja because of it?? :mad:

    It's like if you go to play paintball and you see people dressed up in surplus ACUs or BDUs who try to be all tactical but are obviously just people with a lot of money to throw around. You don't become a better shooter if you shoot wearing jump boots that you got from god knows where with your pants bloused. (I think thats what he was talking about)

    Oh man, thought you had my back but you back tracked. But it's ok. That is what I meant. It's just your pictures do so much more justice than words ever can.

    My hearing protection is from wally world and as a range bag i use an old Craftsman drill bag.

    Good looking Ploofy, I see some here are getting my point. Plus it's fun just to poke at gun guy once in a while.

    Yeah. Generalizations about the gun owning community is a great time.

    The Left makes an active hobby out of it. :rolleyes:

    "Gun Guy" as you describe him, could fit 100 categories here at FTF.

    You're new, so I think it will take some time for you to assess the locals and get to know the lay of the land.

    Heeeeey! I worked hard to get my BDUs and wash them in my sweat and the blood of all who oppose me. Same with my boots, though those have a fair amount of my blood in them, too. Besides, nobody liked guns more than the Soviet Union.

    I was not referring to you. I don't believe that we have crossed words yet given our differences.

    And the US Homeowner is a much stronger advocate for personal firearms ownership than the collective of the former Soviet Union.

    If you doubt that, read some history of the civil war versus life under Stalin. ;)

    Meh. That sounds like a lot of work. I just love everything that fires those 7.62x33s. And I feel the responsibility to defend the left whenever it's challenged. I mean, not a lot of other people here to do it. I never take it personally, certainly not from you.

    :confused:

    Do you mean the 7.62 x 39mm?? The 7.62 x 33 is a common round for the M1 Carbine and I think there was a German trench gun chambered for it. Not really "prominent" in the modern era. :eek:

    And that is one of the reasons that I respect you and hope you someday step up to Supporting Membership. You have a rare view, and we as a forum, need that from time to time to make sure we remain on top of our game.

    While the Left is still my enemy, you are welcome inside the lines of Casa d' Dillinger when the Space Zombies invade. ;)

    I know what you're saying. Buying the gear and looking the part doesn't give you experience, but conversely most people who are really into any sport will over the years pick up a whole collection of accessories that make life easier, or just look cool. Hell, I buy guns based on them 'just looking cool'.

    My wish list has a pair of those "dial in earmuffs" on it. As JD said they are great for being able to communicate without having to remove them or yell.
    I wear ear plugs and muffs when I shoot my rifles. I have constant ringing in my ears and don't want it to get worse.

    We see decked out hunters from the metro areas here every fall. Nobody from the sticks wears upland game pants with matching shirts and vests, but for those who wear work casual every day and don't have grubby work clothes who can blame them for getting "hunting clothes"? We don't care, it just identifies them as visitors. Good for them to come out here where the real world is.
