The Art of War by Shimmering-Sword The Art of War by Shimmering-Sword
Surplus Gas Mask : $15

5.56 Ammunition : $21

AR15 Rifle : $1750

Spending hours playing with Photoshop filters : Priceless


Thought I would finally get around to making myself a DeviantID. Don't worry too much about the foot note, due to my 'watcher to ammunition stockpile ratio' there's a 94% chance you will make it out alive.

rad id. I love my Eotech, got a similar setup on my spikes carbine/magpul/danieldefense rig at home. Have you checked out the 3x magnifier they make? My eyes suck so I picked one up, but so expensive.

I've been in New Zealand for a year (coming back though), during which I sold off my weapons. I'd like to start buying against when I'm back, but I need to stabilize my finances first.

I can picture someone replacing the captions with "FROM MY COLD, DEAD HANDS" for some reason.
It just looks like the popular depiction of a prepper, albeit the "emergency" kind, not the "doomsday" kind.

Well that sucks.
I would go on a rant about how gun control is more about control than it is about guns, but I'll save that for a relevant page.

as long as you spent some time rolling around and diving to the ground in the gas mask with the gun, that price tag would be worth it

I dunno, just some modern type. You can find them on ebay.

Unless that AR15 is made entirely out of pussy you got ripped off, bad. Even with an overpriced EOTech holographic that's WAY too much.

A more realistic price (assuming you're building your own) is about $1,000 before rails and all the other tacticool shit. If you really need to cut corners and save your DOSH you could probably trim that down to $700 if you purchase a mediocre lower receiver and lower tier barrel/handguard.

now you've really piqued my curiosity. may I ask what other tacticool shi-- err..., important operational equipment is on there?

Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Haha, so long as no SHTF it is just a fun tacticool rifle.
It's a Smith and Wesson MP15X. Came with the quad rail and rear troy flip sight. Added...
-Magpul miad grip, rail covers, and window mags
-Eotech 512
-Vltor Emod stock
-Brother in-law brought me a military VFG/bipod back from Iraq.

I'm pretty much just missing a flashlight and maybe some smaller trinkets to make it a complete tactical rifle. It's great fun at the range, and good reference for firearm mechanics.

It was at some surplus sell off somewhere. I didn't get it myself, it was given to me. I know you can get some decent deals on ebay, including buying working filters for them, I don't have filters.

Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Unfortunately no to both questions. I considered going airforce when I was younger, but then I went for art. I'm really into weaponry, but currently I can barely afford to shot my rifle, much less blow cash on classes.

same here for the military part. I considered going into any of the branches, since I had the qualifications for any of them. instead, I opted for something else. as for classes, Magpul Dynamics does have a very excellent instructional video series available on DVD and Blu-Ray. they're not too expensive provided you know where to look(I usually don't tell people to torrent these kinds of things, but depending on the circumstances, I've got no problem recommending it).

the instructional videos are very useful to have, even though they don't substitute for real experience. nevertheless, they're easy to follow and use. I'm hoping to take some of their classes this year, provided that I have the cash for it. if not, I am still getting in a lot of practice, running through the drills and the like, to prep myself for the time when I get to train with Chris, Travis and the rest of the Magpul Dynamics team.
