plate carriers

My SHTF/shelter-in-place combat load. Shellback Tactical Banshee plate carrier w/ Level III TAP GAMMA SAPI plates and BDS tactical (battle/molle) belt. Shellback Tactical, and it’s former parent company Tactical Assault Gear (TAG) are from San Diego, CA. BDS Tactical is also from the SoCal area, due to the large. Marine Corps presence from Camp Pendleton, to MCAS Miramar and 29 Palms .

My chest rig set-ups:

Shellback Tactical Banshee with AR-500 curved plate armor with Haley Strategic D3CR set-up for AR-15 & Glock. VOK, and Winkler Combat Knife.

Special Operations Equipment Shotgun Micro Rig. Set-up with Glock 43/30, with aguila Minishells for my KSG. Still working on first aid and knife on this rig.

Special Operations Equipment AK/M4 Micro Rig. Set-up with Magpul AK-47 mags, Glock 30/43, and Milspecmonkey Ka-bar fixed blade. Still considering first aid on this rig as well.

Three simple load-outs that anyone can put together. Each one can be thrown in a backpack to make it a BoB. Each one is also set-up for different platforms, 12ga, AR-15, & AK-47.

I did a standby for an active shooting

Quite the intense and sort of surreal experience.

I hate to admit it but it was kinda exhilarating/fun…but then again I wasn’t the one being shot at(the gunman was targeting police)

On a side note despite how rare these things are I am thinking about throwing a level III set of plates and a carrier in my backpack for work just in case. I don’t care if people think I am a whacker for this.

Received my Haley Strategic D3CR Chest Rig to run with my Shellback Tactical Banshee Plate Carrier with AR500 Curved Plate Armor.

Current load-out on the banshee:

Glock 19 Gen 4 inside Special Operations Velcro Holster
Two spare mags with Taran Tactical Innovations +6 base pads
4 Magpul Pmags
Winkler Knives fixed Blade
Will be adding a radio(still deciding on make and model) as well as first aid kit(VOK) from Tactical Response.

Stay tuned as I continue to run, change, and add to my current set-up.
