Things a soldier would carry other than firearms, ammo, or uniforms. Meaning equipment such as ammo pouches, bayonets, holsters, oil cans, cleaning equipment, etc.

I was bored (as usual) the other day so I inventoried all my rifle magazines. Turns out I have 70
mags, and if I loaded them all to capacity..... it would take 1650 rounds of various calibers..... :shock:
Obviously I would never do that, even though I have several types of mag loaders, my fingers would still
fall off. And since I never leave my mags loaded, then would have to unload most of them.
Averages out to about 23.6 rounds per mag, a lot of 5.56 30 and 40 rnd mags. It was just an
idle curiosity thing, maybe some day I'll do the pistol mags as there is not nearly as many.


Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.
