I have a question. As some one putting together a LRRP empression,I understand that the list would be an invaluble teaching tool at living history events and such.But,and I may be missing somthing so inform me,but in an "airsoft event",say LIB.CAN.or such,is it truly important to have full load out,at an air soft game? Again,I may be missing an important point since I have not attended a game as yet,And I do understand having the needed equipment to "look" the part,so please set me straight.Thanks

hey Bro,
by no means do you need to carry a ruck or poncho, liner, food water and such!!! some of us go to Mil/Sim events and go the whole 9 yards, but us old guys it gets pretty rough humping all that crap!! id just bring what you'll need for the day, food water, ammo, gatoraid its better to have a nice LBE set up and whatever you need, but if you wanna do a living history display then yea you could bring out the big guns lol
hope this helps, I dont think anyone expects you to bring out 5 LRP meals and a gallon of water for a day long game :)

If you're prepping for the next Lib Canyon, bring whatever you would need for an all weekend game. I went to the last one and I brought a lot of gear I didn't necessarily need for the game, but brought for looks. Its fun to get in the game with all your stuff and look the part. However when we weren't playing we stowed all the stuff we didn't need for patrols and what not. Hope that helps.

Thanks guys,thats what I was thinking. Living history? bring every thing you got.
Airsoft? bring what you really need to look the part for only a couple of days.Its like when I comented a while back about a thosand dollar mint STABO rig (and caught flack about it) vs the excelent repro that is made available for a fraction of the price,since we are not actuly going to be yanked out of the jungle by helocopter,why would you need to get a grand worth of STABO for a game,but,if your a serious collector,then thats another story.Thanks again guys.

I hear ya bro! No point in bringing out the big guns to an airsoft game, cuz I learned you'll be the only one there in high speed Nam gear and sadley, no one will care if its repo or real!! Ive got a 1,200 STABO named w/ attached pistol belt and I could not see bringin it to a game, but for a living history event yea, Id bring it out for "show and tell" or a set of 1,600 gold tigers, no way, not wearing em to an airsoft event. Id like to but Id worry about them being ruined. dont bother to bring more than you need bottom line lol, no point in having to lock it up in your vehicle!!

Yeah, for liberty canyon II most of the space in my pack was filled with rations (MRE guts in LRP bags), but I brought 2 belts of ammo to set in my bunker next to my '60 because it looked cool and help with immersion. On patrol however, I knew I wouldn't be out for too long so I just carried my pig with a .45 in a shoulder holster and a 1 quart in my pocket :D . I know at local events if I wear LRRP or line doggie gear I bring just a simplified LBE that basically holds ammo, a 1 quart, and electrical tape. I tried running at a local game with an M60, E-tool, and a buttpack with poncho and it didn't work very well, especially in the summer heat. I always carry 20 mags though, can never have enough ammo when mags weigh almost nothing :twisted:

Back on topic though guys, Incredibly informative and helpful thread farb, thank you for posting, as this will help me with my LRRP gear.

Looking for some help figuring out what sorts of rucks I should be looking into getting. I know that almost any era rucksack was more than likely used, but I'm aming for either an ARVN or a CIDG. Did CIDG rucks see wide use with the LRRP units?
