Uniform of the day/night?
Just wear civilian clothing like long sleeves, pants and appropriate foot wear to get dirty and abused.

Alright,

Looks like I'm gonna have a gear problem. If anyone has any loner gear they would be willing to let an old Marine use, I would be appreciative.

Had to cancel my bank card yesterday, so I'll have limited ability to purchase needed things this week.

All I'm looking for is an old flak jacket and a chest rig of some sort. Anything better than a flak jacket is icing on the cake I guess.

Thanks

FLAK jacket? Hey Devildog, these are sim rounds, not FMJ. A thick denim shirt will do just fine man.

A BDU top worked fine for me Saturday, since my chest rig took most of the impacts. Just mind the gap between your face shield and your helmet, during one of the micro-battles a guy finished me off with a "coup de grace" and managed to get a shot into my forehead. Those make a nice beauty mark.

If have found that it's not only the material, but the # of shots in the same place as well, with the thin stuff. The energy of the first shot can be distributed via whatever material is in between the round and the surface of the skin, until the material is pressed right up to the skin. However, once the first shot has the material against the skin surface, the energy of the follow up shot/shots is transferred through thin material and right to the skin. That can be a hazard with das gigglees switches......

On a side note I'll be out there Friday night with a baofeng uvr5 to do comms if anyone else wants to plan on bringing a radio. Especially if we can get a decent NVG/Thermal scope to watch for those who would invade our peaceful village...

I will have my Wouxon KG-UV6D, but am not scheduled for Friday. I might be able to "work my way up the ranks" though as I have taken that day off.

I ordered one of those heavy duty throat mics, but if it doesn't show up in time I'll just incorp some headphones onto my remote mic. Transmitting would sound like crap through those masks, but It'll get the job done.

So what should a guy purchase, specifically for this, so that he may communicate with you guys?

Throat mic check. It showed up today. Made contact on the local repeater. Feedback was "bodacious sounding." That's never a bad thing.

If we're going to have non-HAM's participating in comms, I imagine we'll have to use the MURS or GMRS freqs. I suspect our antennas aren't very efficient on those freqs, but given our proximity to each other, it should work quite well.

There is a decent readup on those here:
http://www.captainswoop.com/radio/uhf.html

I'd say the cheapest route would be to scoop up a Baofeng UV-5R variant HT radio. Hamcity.com has them domestically and you might be able to get one in time. Make sure you get a remote hand mic at minimum, as you can string some regular headphones (like iphone ones) to that and you'll at least be able to listen.

HT radio:
https://www.hamcity.com/store/pc/UV-5R-UU-BK-p2803.htm
Throat Mic (takes a week for shipping from this source):
Click

Total about $100 + shipping.

Griz or anyone else, please correct me if I'm wrong on any of that.

Amazon has the baofeng UV5R (non plus edition) for $33 and a generic throat mic for $25ish.

And as for HAMS if we were to ask everyone if they had their ham lic yes we would be restricted. If we were to assume everyone had a ham and would tell us "sorry guys I can't use that freq" if not we could stay on ham freqs...

So you're saying go ahead and use the HAM bands? If so, we have to ID, every 10.

Why would we (who are licensed) put ourselves at risk like that when every single one of our HT's will transmit on unlicensed freqs?

FCC doesn't monitor freqs for unlicensed ops. They'll never even glance your way unless they get a LOT of complaints. Worst case, some vigilante HAM with a direction finding rig comes looking to try to tear ya a new asshole. And we KNOW how that would work out. Just keep it to a simplex freq and keep the power dialed back -- stuff you'd do, anyway -- and go on with it.

Phrase of the evening, "Lay some hate."

Well, I have a head ache and I am quite sore after the first night, which is the easy night.

For me, hand protection was key. For others, forearms. Those opfor weapons are hell on earth as far cleanliness and reliability, but the heroes had the same issues probably just not as much.

No comms on the first night, but there isn't a need for it really. Too much noise and close quarters chaos.

I need thicker pants. My quads will thank me. The carharrt flannel lined utility shirt I used was perfect for this. The impact gloves I bought off the exchange were great for manipulation, but horrible for protection. The protective vests they had on hand were good, although I wish I wasn't so fat. I had a hard time keeping it over my belly, so I took a couple of zingers there.

All in all, it was a real eye opener and a ton of fun. You learn how "stay small" reall quick, that's for dang sure. Some of those hero guys were really good shooters, others not so much. It was really interesting to see how aggressive some were and others weren't. There were two other Marines on opfor but everyone was as aggressive as we could be within the parameters they gave us. I think everyone on opfor was current or prior service military, so it was nice.

I think I'm the only one returning form last night for tonight though.

Phrase of the evening, "Lay some hate."

Well, I have a head ache and I am quite sore after the first night, which is the easy night.

For me, hand protection was key. For others, forearms. Those opfor weapons are hell on earth as far cleanliness and reliability, but the heroes had the same issues probably just not as much.

No comms on the first night, but there isn't a need for it really. Too much noise and close quarters chaos.

I need thicker pants. My quads will thank me. The carharrt flannel lined utility shirt I used was perfect for this. The impact gloves I bought off the exchange were great for manipulation, but horrible for protection. The protective vests they had on hand were good, although I wish I wasn't so fat. I had a hard time keeping it over my belly, so I took a couple of zingers there.

All in all, it was a real eye opener and a ton of fun. You learn how "stay small" reall quick, that's for dang sure. Some of those hero guys were really good shooters, others not so much. It was really interesting to see how aggressive some were and others weren't. There were two other Marines on opfor but everyone was as aggressive as we could be within the parameters they gave us. I think everyone on opfor was current or prior service military, so it was nice.

I think I'm the only one returning form last night for tonight though.

I'll be there tonight. Don't wear pads... women wear pads :)

For guns if you use break cleaner + brush on the barrel and heavy rem oil on the bolt, firing pin, charging handle and upper I usually have one or two malfunctions a night. Keep her clean and she'll serve you well.

And yep... sim rounds on fat are a special feeling, outpaced only by finger tips.

You are going to love thursday night. You'll find out about good shooters on their side.
