This is actually really funny to read the replies. I am not going to bother wasting a bunch of time trying to convince you that it wasn't photoshopped but I promise you it wasn't. If you have any doubts at all you can go to the BCAC forums and ask Batman who took the pics or anyone else who was there at the milsim.
Picture of myself (Pixelated face with Photoshop, I do have a nose ) yesterday in Kapellen, Belgium. As I have already stated, I don't spend tons of money on authentic gear, I just keep it fun and simple and wear what I like. As you can see, the typical Belgian rain had been pouring down on me all day.
For those of you who wonder what that weird thing on the flash hider is: it's the mount of a Classic Army QD-silencer, but because it made the gun jam (the foam sometimes kept BB's in the silencer) I screwed it off. Mount is attached via small pin, for which I didn't have a tool with me at the time. (And yes, the safety stickers on the gun will be removed. It was brand new).
Dang, how do you guys afford all of that stuff? I'm insanely jealous! I make less than minimum wage :-\.. there should be a labor law about how people treat their student researchers.
All I have are:
A stock m16a3 (but I can still kick your @$$ ) + 3 hicap mags
An uncomfortable set of boots
Blackhawk kneepads and elbow pads
Kevla (replica helmet)
Goggles built to fit glasses
-bunch of MOLLE pouches i dont feel like namind
-Hatch elbow/ knee pads
-Kpot with NVG mount
-Desert and Black boots
-Drop leg holster
-Just about every US pattern there is from 1990 and on
-bunch of other **** i really dont feel like typing so if i get a good pic I'll put it up
