After years of being around firearms, tactical gear, going out shooting, training, and practice, I found out that for some situations keeping it simple is actually better. When I first started playing airsoft back in 2005 I had a replica CIRAS plate carrier with an excessive amount of pouches on it. The plate carrier was extremely heavyI did not really need all the pouches I had. It was not until I got into firearms that I realized “less is more”. You could do more with less equipment because of the weight and simplicity factor.
If you have read my previous articles, you know that I run a Banshee Plate Carrier and Suregrip Battle Belt system for my primary loadout. The pouches on my plate carrier and battle belt are bare essentials. I not only save weight, but simplicity can make me more efficient on grabbing my equipment out of the pouches. That is the reason why I like Gryffon, the new gear company that just surfaced on the tactical gear market. One particular item caught my eye is the Universal Shooter Belt. I already have a lot of ways to utilize this belt system.
