This really seems like a stupid thing to argue about. As soon as it gets to surplus stores every fatass with twenty dollars will wear it. There is not a lot anybody can do about it. I happen to dislike non-service members wearing anything service related, especially liberal trash actors pretending to be soldiers. But, not much can be done to stop it, I personally hope for a good solid ass kicking to be given to posers caught pretending to be Marines.

I dont.

Oh sweet Jesus, here we go again. Personally, I think some of the European camo patterns look "cooler" and work just as well if you know what you are doing. Anyway, I'm fleeing to the Pistol cal board before this explodes in a Class 1 shitstorm.

I dont give a shit oneway or another, but I'm not a Marine.

Does it make you invisible like those silver/grey cloaks the Hobbits had?

The elves had the cloaks, not the hobbits. (Or the cloak of invisibility that Harry Potter had. Not to mention the one of Richard Rahl or even the one used by Van Damme in Predator, but that was more of an energy shield like the klingon cloak in Star Trek...)

[b]Who really cares about wearing MARPAT?[/b] Apparently quite a few members of this BBS! My opinion is that [b]I[/b] should be the [b]only[/b] one allowed to wear [b]MARPAT[/b]!

I CAN'T SEE MY LEGS!!!!!!!!! Oh wait, the desert MARPAT I am wearing blends in with my carpet. Never mind.

Jeez, I like GI issue cammies for playing paintball, cuz they are cheap and hold up real well, unlike cheap hunting cammies. Unless someone is trying to impersonate a soldier what is the BFD??

I wear an Airforce flight jacket in the winter because it's warm, rain resistant, comfortable and helps hide my CCW in a sholder holster. I don't wear any type of "camo". In the summer I sometimes wear an Army tan fatigue shirt at the range to hold extra ammo, spent brass, etc. Also on trips if I am using my cameras and related equipment. It's cheeper than a photography vest. I've been in the service, proud of it and don't want to pretend that I'm still in. I do have a Spiderman suit that I wear at home though. [8D]

If your going to buy it, make sure it's made by Propper. Every piece I have made by Propper fits great. Every piece made by other companies fits like crap. Jay

I don't care!

What is the big difference between some fatass at a gun show in regular BDUs and MARPAT? Just because MARPAT is new and supposedly cool-looking? I don't get it. The fatass at the gunshow obviously isn't in the military, and he isn't trying to convince anyone he was a Marine, a Navy SEAL maybe, but they never impersonate Marines.

Nothing sticks out like a sore thumb like camo.

Not every civi, just the ones I've seen at gunshows.

I like the story about the bank robbers who wore masks and cammo to help intimidate their victims. The problem is that every piece of cammo clothing is unique. They caught them later without the money, but they could prove that it was them by matching the cammo clothing to the video recorded at the bank they robbed. Gotta love it...

Helldog40, If this thread isn't locked tomorrow I'll post a pic of my girlfriend wearing MARPAT panties. Regards, Spiderman

Only way I'm going to buy some is if I need some good camo for Airsoft skirmishing.
