Re: ANN ARBOR metro area TK armor party

I have a na anovos kit I need to build. My Current FX will then become a TD. Kim and I are looking at a House in Ypsi that if we get it the house will be my priority. I would be happy to help anyone else in the area work on theirs in the meantime. .

Re: ANOVOS = Argh! (now I have to make a decision)

Did everyone see that they switched what they are making this armor out of? Switched from ABS to PVC. Some pvc is more rubbery than the pvc pipes are made of and are not easily worked. I wonder what other changes will take place before we see this stuff! :whatthe:

Re: Looking for leather ammo pouches

Unless you have a super good, full of OLD stuff, surplus store you won't find any Leather Mp-40 or like pouches. I have looked at prety much every Army/Navy surplus store in the tri county area and Lansing and southern Cali and have not been able to find any . Look online .
