    Yes, tactical gear.... maybe a bit of a controversial topic

    But:
    - Who uses it?
    - What do you use?
    - Where is a good place to get it?

    I use tactical gear quite a bit.

    Thankfully in WA, we have a player who is a private security contractor, and as such is able to source up to half-priced milspec stuff for us.

    I have a MOLLE vest, with Winchester .300 mag pouches (fit 2-3 6 mags perfectly), a Condor pistol holster, a smoke grenade pouch, and a random haversack/dump pouch I found at a surplus store.

    I wouldn't say its a controversial topic, but I'd say that people who use a lot of clips would use tac vests/rigs. I like to stay away from tac vests though, seeing as they're just not my cup of tea, so to speak. But I do know that most tac gear is purchased on eBay.

    I currently pack an ALICE harness with a M1956 belt, 2x M16 pouches (holds 3 CS clips each), M1956 buttpack, and M1956 compass pouch complimented with a drop-leg holster which can hold a Sharpshooter II.

    The trick when buying pouches etc, is to make sure that you have the right sizing for your clips.

    6s can fit in many generic pouches, 18s are more of a challenge, however, and are more suited to storage pouches.

    Your millage may vary.

    From somebody who doesn't have the professional experience in using it, I can't give a direct and definite approval of using the gear. I do very much like using such genuine gear, and it feels comfortable for me but I find that the costs of making/buying one as opposed to the cheaper knockoff alternatives with more modern designs will put off the younger nerfer. The M16 pouches, for instance, can't hold the CS clips without modification (and if you did the same practice of cutting the straps back on base, you'd be belted by the CO) and the 18-round sticks make pouch cover chafe against you body.

    I don't mind it for what it's worth (yes, it make me looks the tits and I find it comfortable), but it's not for everyone.

    I've put up with it for more than 12 hours a day for 5 days straight of hiking, marching and sneaking on a few occasions.
    Now this was when I was smaller framed, a decade ago.

    Considering that the full kit consisted of 2 x 1L water bottles, a day's worth of rations, toiletries, rain gear and a few other tools and items; it was okay, I guess.
    Sometimes combined with backpack, with sleeping and shelter gear, spare items of clothing, an entrenching tool and other items.
    The chest rig I replace the ALICE harness kit is craploads better and came with hydration pack with more capacity (feels a lot lighter, even if carrying more stuff).

    For Nerfing purposes, and factoring costs involved, the ALICE harness kit is quite satisfactory.
    I just don't like them, that's all. It's something personal.

    Comfort has got a lot to do with the correct adjustment and weight distribution, with your own body frame.
    Getting a harness belt padding will prevent those damned metal ALICE clips from rubbing against your body.

    Comfort is definitely a major factor in tac gear selection. If you are able to, try some stuff on first, test fit clips etc.

    If you are using the internet, then obviously you don't have the luxury, so make sure you get the measurements right.

    Tact gear I think is useful in the larger scale events where you need to carry more ammo. I'm a half / half fan on them. I only use them if I use them for larger scale wars. For example, my current vest can hold four AT drums. On in each pouch and relatively snug.

    With the 'smaller' vests such as the one I displayed below. You can actually mod them to fit AT drums nicely. No wobble, no drop out.

    For the time being, I'm pretty set on an RSCB, so I just wear my utility pouch and pistol holster... which leads me to a quick question, who actually takes out their secondary pistol in a war? I've never had to, only once when I was using my Big Blast and I was goign to be rushed.

    I personally only take pistols out when i want a single, more accurate shot, or if I know I can scare someone with it.

    Otherwise, it's just a reassuring weight on my hip/vest that I have that extra shot.

    I picked up some ALICE gear at a garage sale, I got the harness, belt, the bumbag-pack-thing at the back and three canteen holders. I find the harness is too small for me, (for some reason it just doesn't fit those who are 6'4" :P) so I use the belt with the canteen holders holding about 4 clips each and I have my sidearm in an imitation MOLLE airsoft holster I picked up from Paddy's markets. (Seriously, you can buy just about anything there :D). I also use the NERF bandolier.

    Yeh, I was more looking at the comfort factor, for application's predominantly outside of Nerf.

    ie: hunting pigs etc.

    Thanks for the info, gives me a few more points to consider.

    You guys might trying going into an army disposals type of place, have a chat with the guys behind the counter and have a look at the items. Another good idea would be to bring in some of the nerf clips that you will be using and ask the guys if you can try them put in the different pouches so you can see what would work.

    Most of the people who work at these stores that I have had dealings with are pretty cool about such things as long as you're straight up with them.

    eBay is always a good place to look because it's alot cheaper then going to the Australian stores, but with eBay I have noticed that you really do get what you payed for.

    I can't remember the websites and as I am on my iPhone I can't do a quick search and then copy paste them up, but googe: egalmarine, 511, LA police gear, platattack, sord, kit bag, aus webgear.
    That's all I can remember off the top of my head.

    Also I would be more then happy to answer questions
