Stealth is 90% movement, 10% camouflage.i could never stand a full suit, im too impatient, one of my friends came out to the woods last weekend with a new mask, it was one that had full head coverage, he put a lot of the local shrubs in the top and it worked quite well, untill he moved, we are in the pacific northwest and you cant get through the woods without making a fair amount of noise:hug:, all i had to do was sit still from time to time and i could get a general idea of where he was:dodgy:, he did plaster one of my friends though when he held still for long enoufgh, my other friend never knew he was about 10 feet away untill the paint started flying, he only had the mask and some regular camo on but because you couldnt see his head it worked quite well
They are amazing if you are a sniper and you'll be a BAMF.
*sigh* no one understands sarcasm anymore...yes, they are great for snipers. ANYWHERE
Canada has an ARMY?! :sly:As one of two brothers who are ex-army
Good for you. I love seeing guys in gillies out at the field. We call them "targets". thumup:Thanks for the responses guys. I don't plan to just sit back try to hit moving targets.
I plan to move around and look for targets. I just think the ghillie suit will help to conceal me better when i stop moving because i found a target. I don't think you can just sit somewhere and wait. number one it's boring and number 2, your odds for getting a long distance kill are low.
As far as using it in different environments, the ghillie suit can be adjusted to match the terrain you will be in and for the time of year. if you're in the woods in the fall you can go with more brown. If it's summer, more green. I like that it's adjustable. it's one reasons i got it.
Anyway, thanks again.
