Got the new rucksack issued today

I’ve been trying to get one of those fuckin’ things for over almost a year now but our Air Force supply tech isn’t “Qualified” to issue them. My 82’ ruck literally has no side pockets on it anymore its in such rough shape…

I just went straight to the ASU because my unit was giving me a similar story

New books to follow soon too eh?
Oh, “boots”. Yeah, I heard they were coming, but I also heard they fall apart in less than a year of field use.

I’ll weigh it now and get back to you

Comes in at 7.5-8lbs unloaded without accessory pouches, variable depending on whether you have the compression sack in it or not

Fuck, that doesn’t seem like much but mine is right around 4lbs. I don’t know if your unit allows them, but you can get all the parts for a jumpruck for around $120.

We’ve got a Sgt and a WO that both rock them, I’m thinking I might look at picking one up in a year or so if I don’t end up liking the new one, but I’m pretty partial to the design of the new one personally, so I might just stick with it. I’m also buying the Karrimor tecmac 50 this summer and that should do for anything shorter than a week in the field.

Strike Back

The fact that they cancelled this, yet have renewed Banshee, makes me fucking ill.

I feel exactly the same.

Strike Back was the best fucking show ever made

"A story: A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he’s finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands, love a woman, build a house, change his son’s diaper; his hands remember the rifle."

Ok, so i enjoy being a reservist since I dont have much bullshit to worry about compared to my active duty counterparts. I have the luxury to stay at home with my family and further my career in my civilian sector of life while still serving my country. But what really irritates me about being a…
