+1 Just go on youtube and do a search on Nutnfancy and tactical vest and you will get a lot of info on how join the mall ninja army. here is one to start http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbZDH_haCzE How much ammo do you want to carry. Are you in shape? Do you want to look tacticool or do you want to blend in? If you want to get a rig to load yourself down with 20lb of mags and crap and run around in the desert shooting stuff like Nutnfancy, be my guest. However when the SHTF how much ammo do you think you will need to carry around with you. I have an AR and a Glock 19, SHTF they are loaded and I carry an extra mag each in my pocket. That is 60 rounds of 5.56 and 30 rounds of 9mm. For basic walking around the house post SHTF do you need more? Even if I want to get frisky, I have an old army M16 ammo pouch and a double pistol mag pouch that I can hook on my belt. So that is a total of 4 mags of 5.56 which is 120 rounds and 45 rounds of 9mm total. Seriously beyond zombie hordes do you need more ammo. Also with this setup I can lay flat and still reload. Also most jackets can hold a few mags. If its chilly just put on a jacket, stick a few mags in your pockets and you are set. Sure I could go all out and carry 210 rounds or more like I did in the Army, but remember each loaded AR mag weighs a pound, pistol mags are about the same. 7lb AR + 1.5lb Pistol + 7 AR mags + 3 Pistol mags + Cheap Tactical vest = over 20 pounds and that is not including food, water and other gear. Unless you are young and in good shape, you will be huffing and puffing when you need to run and move around, making shooting accurately difficult. You will also be a slow and easy target. I'll be honest with you, I got a small 5.11 molle chest rig that I bought for $25. Its collecting dust, but if the world goes all Mad Max, I promise I will wear it to the Thunderdome.
