AXTS receiver, Aimpoint M3 in a Bobro QD mount, Magpul BUIS, QD sling and rail sling adapter, Rainier Arms upper, Samson rail (exclusive to Rainier EVO series). Below, Magpul Pmag in a Bladetech mag holder.

In addition to the two 30-round Pmags, Brian has a 150-round Armatac drum deployed right out of its carrying pouch. The trough between the two sides of the drum allows his left arm to support the weight of the ammunition.

Since the Aimpoint reticle is a simple 2MOA dot, he’s using rangefinding binoculars to figure out the distance to target. Unlike laser rangefinders, these emit nothing and do not require batteries…instead, they require familiarity with milradians.

The most pressing tactical question that remains: what’s the best way to camouflage his bright red beard?

    I think the blue bandana is much more visible from a distance than his red beard.
    That’s why you use red light and why the police/ambulance/fire brigade have blue lights.

    And the range-finding reticles require knowledge of the size of the target, or of objects near the target. They are excellent, but not a complete replacement of other ranging technologies. The point regarding active verses passive systems is well taken.

    The width of a front sight post, etc., or features of the duplex or other more standard reticles, can also be used for ranging if one spends the time to figure out the angular sizes of said features. Having a laser ranger available, for verification, is very good for these sorts of experimentation and practice. Eventually you can get along more and more without the laser.

    Knowing the angular width of one’s thumb held at arm’s length, is a traditional ranging system.

    Simple. Shave.

    I believe that woad is the traditional camouflage concoction for combining with such a fearsome facial forest.

  6. My furry friend here might have an idea how to camo that set of ginger whiskers…

    Yeah, woad. And lime. Raar. 🙂

    Bootblacking will camouflage a beard!
