Building a DM program for LE Agency, looking for advice/guidance

Maligator54 ·
I'm working on building a Designated Marksman program for my agency. We are a rural Sheriff's Office in Kansas. I've spoke to admin briefly about the topic but for the most part they are long removed from the road and don't agree on the need, so I'm fighting an up hill battle. Speaking to some of my partners the primary need's we've observed are as follows; We regularly serve high risk/narcotics warrants in our rural areas and frequently encounter driveway's in excess of 200 yards long.

Our state certifying entity limits the power of the optics we can use, specifically anything above (I believe) 4x requires an actual sniper school and slot. So, our patrol guys can run up to a 4x or variable etc without an issue.

So having been in your position for the last eight years and having similar working environment, I was going down the same road you are; however I changed roads last year. I submitted a policy and course of fire to allow the carrying of rangemaster approved bolt and semi rifles with scopes about 4 years ago. It went nowhere. So after carefully reviewing policy, I noted nothing prohibited scoping patrol rifles. Ergo, now I have .308 and 5.56 patrol rifles in my unit; the 5.56 carries a 1-4,...

Pointblank I'd say its honestly a bit of both. We have about 14 commissioned Deputies. I'd say about half of us are very capable, take our training seriously, and work to improve. The other half are Rods or admin that shoot their annual qual and go home. Manpower is always an issue for us. A scoped option has just been a bug in the back of several of our heads for a while. We regulary train at 150-200 and can get our hits. A lot of it is a man power/skill issue. But I think a lot of us would...

FWIW, My team rolls with 4 snipers max. It was my proposition to train up a handful of DM's that would cross-train with snipers quarterly. My objective was to: 1) Have a feeder system for prospective snipers 2) Have additional perimeter support to relieve snipers for other tasks if necessary 3) Act as spotters/security if 4 sniper positions were required so snipers wouldn't have to deploy alone. Ultimately, the project fizzled. One good thing to come out of it was shedding the light on the...

That's something that makes no sense to me as long as there's a 1X on the low end.

LE is a strange and mystifying realm sometimes. I "think" the issue here is long range firepower is something we don't do a lot of. Some places are lucky to shoot patrol rifles past 100yrds. My agency allows us up to 200yrds just to get a feel for what it's like but we zero and qualify from 100yrds in. From a purely strategic point of view, having something like a 1-6 or 1-8 on a patrol rifle just for the intel gathering purposes would be awesome. The issue then becomes precision shooting.

Which plate carrier for me??

Feardo37 ·
Hey man I need a plate carrier and I need some recommendations. My budget is around 300 but I could go up if the upgrade is worth it. I shoot real steal and also play Airsoft When playing Airsoft I do milsim events as well as regular skirmishes. Milsim events are at least a day long. I need something comfortable enough to Wear for day(s) but also slim enough to play in only 30-40 minute games as well. I need MOLLE on the admin area for tactical universal clip. Modularity would also be very...

Thanks for being up front about what your intended use is. If you’re not planning on running with actual armor (hard plates and/or Kevlar backers) then any of your choices will be plenty comfortable for your needs. Be aware that PC’s without armor lack some rigidity and support, you’ll find out quickly how unbalanced the weight distribution is. If you’re dead set on the FS tubes, check out the SKD/First Spear STT collaboration for a PC.

For some reason, I feel obligated to warn you: This site is generally not the place to post you airsoft questions, although there are members here who participate and they may reach out to you. Generally speaking, it is best to spend your first few months (or years) here reading through the various topics and enlightening yourself on not only the format, but the content before posting; unless the topic is very specific and you can provide the relevant parameters.

Not hating on airsoft, I played a lot of both airsoft and paintball before I enlisted and I use airsoft as a training aid for my guys but as previously mentioned understand that it's not really the target audience of this forum so you might catch some flak from time to time. Some people look down on it but I've gotten some really good training from it so rock on. That being said I vote for the JPC 2.0 or even a JPC 1.0. You can't beat their simplicity, quality and value and after wearing one...

Yea so my carrier started out as a Mayflower APC but after some mad scientist (Dr Diz) got ahold of it it’s some kinda APC/JPC/FS franken carrier and I’m loving this thing. Tubes on the cummerbund and left should strap makes this thing a breeze to get on and off and the tubes don’t get caked up with sand like the buckles on the IOTV and require a whole squad to get off. Tubes are definitely the way to go.

That pretty much covers it. I would only add that a Tubes mod is usually possible for just about any PC, especially if you use the Crye skeletonized CB. If Runningwolf cares to chime in, I did his mod and he really likes it. I roll with a JPC 2.0 w/ Tubes mod and really like it.

If you are not going to use real plates, get a couple sheets of thick kydex, cut to fit and back with a good couple of layers of foam sleeping mat for bulk to make the thickness. This will provide the support normally provided by a real plate

The topic of air soft has been covered by others so I will not dwell on it. You will find that what you are doing with your games is not 180 degrees different from what we do for real; from a gear comfort and utilization standpoint. The recommendations on LF for PC and related equipment will reflect a balance of value, comfort, design execution, usability, modularity, and task suitability, but maybe not in that order. There are numerous reviews of each of PCs you mentioned tucked away around...

The DARC strap is fairly basic, they got some dudes I’ve trained with that had loops with cobra buckles sew up and put on there belts along with the other end of the buckle sewn into the strap on the plate carrier, that was pretty neat to see, then Spiritus Systems is making a DARC strap now.

Ha, yeah man and I forgot about those zip panels we added last time so that thing is a JPC in everything but name only. Runningwolf has the most shit-hot set up I've seen. Including DAR-C drag handle (which he has posted on, check out archives).

If you're 100% dead set on the tubes, just buy an STT or Strandhogg. With the cost of the retrofit cummerbund added to the base cost of a normal carrier you might as well have just bought the Strandhogg to begin with. The LBT and Mayflower rigs are pretty similar, with a few pros and cons to each. Mayflower APC PROS: slightly lighter iirc, slightly slimmer shoulder pads, integrated admin pouch, spacer mesh when ordering from optactical, rear plate bag is SAPI cut, takes swift clips if that...

Well, here's a couple of pics to show you one way of doing it. Here you can see the "water knot" up top, just peaking out enough to grab. The 'biner is usually rigged on the PC until needed. Here you can see how the line is threaded down through the back (it's actually woven into the molle webbing) and handle "S" folded up top. When fully deployed, the handle is long enough to support the head/neck, and allow two guys to drag. The 'biner attaches to the riggers belt, so you are pulling from...
