    I say wear what you want. If other people do not like it, too bad.

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    Guess it depends on which part of the country you're in...

    Or maybe which part of the county if you live in Arkansas!

    Nah... you'll need a lot more velcro, molle, and belt-attached gear to go down that path.

    Do you look ridiculous? If not, I wouldn't worry about it. Wear what you want...don't worry about what others think. I have a buddy that's a mall ninja. Has tactical vests, drop leg holsters...the whole bit. Alone these items aren't too bad....but all at once? He looks ridiculous.

    In order to fit in and look like normal Mall shoppers isn't looking ridiculous a requirement? Purple spiked hair and four inch looped earrings?
    Speaking of Malls. I drove to the city to buy myself some new jeans to replace mine that are threadbare and full of holes. When I get to the department store they are selling jeans just like the ones I am wearing. Full of holes and the material seems to be worn paper thin.
    What the hell?

    Do you have on a boonie hat and aviator sunglasses? If not, I'd say you are ok.

    The word "Sniper" MUST appear somewhere on your person. Otherwise, you're out of uniform. Oh! And don't forget your paracord bracelet.

    I think a camo Machete would go nice with the outfit.

    Serve my country, swear an oath to protect it, pay my taxes, fly old glory in the front yard, love and protect my family, honor the vets before me and help fellow americans in need.
    By definition my country now calls me a radical
