Thats pretty nifty. What is the cost for a rig like that?

I have about 8k into it with accessories and other items to do multiple calibers.

HAHAHA! Gown on backwards! :lol: That's a good one! I'll do that when I end up there after I tell the old lady what I want to buy! :D

That thing sure is nice, I don't think I reload enough, or shoot enough for that matter to need something that awesome! I'll just have to do more of both and then I'll need one!

I don't reload. I buy my 5.56 on stripper clips in ammo cans. I have a bunch of Nam bandoleers and i fill it with 5.56 except for one pouch. I put 9mm on the 5.56 stripper clips (only holds 9) and in the same cardboard boxes, so I have a battle pack with my 5.56 and my 9mm in one bandoleer. Then i use the wife's food storage vacuum machine to seal the entire pack twice. No moisture, no rust, and ready to rock and roll in a heartbeat.

Weber, do you reload for selling purposes or is all that for personal use?

Jim, I like the idea about sealing up your ammo with the ole food vacuum. I've wanted to get one strictly for that purpose. I think I'll wait and see if my wife buys one, then move it from the kitchen to the gun cave! :lol:

I have two loadouts. One for hunker down and defend. My place is surrounded by woods, so longest shot would be 100 yards. My primary weapon for that is a colt 1r15 in 9mm. In the house and outside will work for me.

My primary weapon for bug out is a Smith M&P ar15 carbine with a 16 inch barrel suppressed along with a ruger takedown 10/22 suppressed as well. I always have a 9 mm sidearm too and a suppressor in my pack for it.

Although now at my age and surviving prostate cancer, I am more inclined do the hunker down strategy. My kids need to come protect my old ass.

Here are pics of the bandoleers.
This one is all 9mm for hunker down. you can see how tight it's sucked in by the food saver.

This is a bug out bandoleer with 5.56 and 9mm both.

BTW, I told you wrong, you can get 10 rounds in one stripper clip of 9mm. You turn them sideways in the cardboard and you can get 60 rounds in one pouch.
