some things… gun show and bike project

OK post gun show report; sold a few things on Sunday, after having zero sales on Saturday; and got a few contacts for custom gear.  I am now in the progress of building up a bicycle with military gear and bags, so far I am using surplus gear, but I am having some ideas for custom gear tailored to cyclists and bike-packers that is compatible with current military equipment! I also have 8 Woodland pouches for sale; and am making DCU pouches this week!

here is the bike as it sits now

the panniers are MOLLE Sustainment Pouches; here’s how they are attached;

the heavier duty “camping rig”, with seat and without seat (earlier photos)

handlebar rig; a 3 day pack with 2x 2 quart  on front and 2 Medic pockets and a 1 1-qt canteen in middle on back

I’m not sure if I like the green bags orientation, I might flip it around for ease of removing items from the bag… or cut the two smaller pouches on the side to make room for webbing to attach pouches or bags for lashing…

 

no new business, got ideas, heart surgery…

no new orders for my SKS pouches at the moment, so I’m looking at other pouch ideas and gear ideas, and trying to design a system of brackets to utilize LC frames onto a bicycle frame to enable people to use ALICE rucks as saddlebags on a MTB frame, and have been staying at my parents for a couple weeks due to my dad’s heart surgery, a triple bypass surgery.. He is doing very good and is coming home tomorrow, I will most likely remain here for the better part of 6 weeks as he recovers as an assistant and helper around the house, and a chauffeur since the Dr. told him no driving for 6 weeks. I might bring the sewing supplies over to their house so I can do some new ideas and projects and see what happens, I am thinking maybe make pouches for the Tapco SKS duckbills, not sure yet…

Been busy….made a couple MOLLE versions, and got a friend whose site is up!

made 5 more pouches and shipped them out to beta testers; and finished 2 MOLLE versions a few days ago! now I just need to get more webbing; probably tomorrow, and then finish up the first batch of 15 pouches! also; will be making a few upsized pouches, at 5x5x3 and in MOLLE, possibly belt loops, for shotgun shell boxes,Jungle first aid kit plastic insert, AR15 20 round magazines, possibly AK 10rd magazines….we’ll see how they fit!

pictures of the MOLLE version, shown with USGI Army Medic pockets and mounted to Plate Carrier; the MOLLE version takes 3 MOLLE slots space on the plate carrier; and takes uh around 3 rows

and for my friend, Jon, his new site is up and running, it is all about guns and politics…feel free to join it!

updated Pouch with current design!

well after some mishaps with the webbing lol; I am now starting up the “production” model of the SKS pouch !

basically I’ve done some tweaking of the design, and shortened the 1″ webbing used for the SR buckles so that the pieces are there when open as opposed to having to fish for it to close. this is the current design, and I must say, it looks MUCH cleaner!

Starting a blog on my tactical gear designs!

Well; this is the first post; I’ve already made a few pouches and they are well on their way to being shipped out for the BETA testers! Essentially this is going to be my Bread and Butter; a 10 clip SKS pouch that mounts to ALICE pistol belts and I will be offering MOLLE mount options, as well as differing camouflage patterns to pick from once regular production starts!

these are the first of the series of pouches I am making;

and this is the first of the updated design to allow better weather resistance;
