We had a different approach to this, our plastic RK62 / RK 95 mags have a loop to attaching a short leather strap, that then goes to the rifle.

He would have had a leather strap, but you know, The Marine Corps ONLY gets the "hand-me-downs" of the other services and make it work, so those are actually USED rubber bands.

About 100 years ago when was in sniper school with a bunch of Marines they would tell me that the Corps was still winning wars with the equipment the Army abandoned at the Chosin resivoir. Then I would tell them Chesty Puller was gay. It was good natured...........sort of.

Since the SWAT brick is intended to be used as a tactical offensive weapon by SWAT personnel, it is offered only in JackBootedStormTrooper Black

I shouldn’t have ended the sentence with “...” an “!” would have been more appropriate. I was glad to get all the humor, it made the post even more productive than I anticipated.
