Thread: If you were going to run 10k carrying rifle, pistol, ammo, how would you do it?

    First, it's been in single digits here so I ain't running out side...yet.

    Okay, I could run two pistol and two rifle mags on my wilderness belt and everything else in a backpack with a small water bladder. I just liked the idea of having everything out at once. But that does seem more practical/comfortable. I'm not crazy about a big chest rig, I just have no use for it outside of this event...

    Ouch! Didn't see your location. Yeah, single digits suck.

    I'm not a fan of chest rigs either. I bought a cheap Condor(airsoft) setup on Amazon for my first race. It gets HOT in the summer and it never fit well- I'm 5'11" but have a smaller frame so the shoulders and chest were always too loose.

    All that said- I'm happy to loan it out for a race. I'd be willing to drop it in the mail and let you return it at the event. If you're interested send a PM.

    Thanks! I have a minimalist setup I want to try and if I do a couple runs with it and find it lacking I will be in touch.

    Another year, another 20K first place finishing from @FOG. He also managed to snag the 3rd place finish for the 10K.

    I did manage to snag the winning score for the 10K Juggernaut challenge, and got talked into doing my entire 20K in armor and helmet by one of the events organizer (Daniel Hensch). The former achievement was probably more due to a low skill pool out of the guys doing Juggernaut than my own physical prowess, as I managed to run an extra 2 miles on the first 10K; I missed a blindly obvious turn, and ended up taking the next turn. This meant that I clocked 15.98 miles in armor and helmet, besides all the other gear. Yeah, it sucked.

    My rifling was again mediocre (sounds like a broken record at this point), although I feel my skills have actually improved; a combination of fatigue (which hurt both my physical performance and mental train of thought, the latter being my total failure to account for offset on my rifle through an otherwise easy stage) and inability to read wind hurt my rifle shooting.

    As always, great to see @FOG (and his lovely wife that RO'd after running the event yesterday) and @littlejerry.

    Nice work, dude.

    When I draw, I don't deactivate the safety; I activate the danger.

    FOG is a beast. Not sure what his run time was, but he smoked me. I placed 2nd overall for the 20k, and managed to snag 1st place for the shoot score. I felt like my rifle stages went really well and my pistol stages were a bit rougher, but it all worked out.

    Default was a total badass and did the 20k in full kit with plates and a helmet. And not only was the "20k" 14 miles this time, but he managed to take a wrong turn and added another ~2 mile bonus. I'm sure his legs and shoulders will feel good tomorrow.

    Fun weekend. Love seeing and catching up with everyone. We can go 6 months between seeing each other but when we do, we just pick up where we left off. Pretty cool.

    I told LJ beforehand that he was primed to win one and damn near did. He and I are kindred spirits, it's a shame we live 500+ miles apart. Default showed a ton of resilience in not throwing in the towel after that 2 mile wrong turn mistake. Must have been the Marlboros that gave him strength!

    My running propelled me to victory again but my shooting has gotten much better, specifically over the last few months. @Mr_White and others from this forum have been a contributing factor in that area of improvement so thanks for the help.
