Maybe try to catch a US Palm Defender on sale at PA again. I think he had them for 25 or 30 bucks off the normal $200 just a week or two ago - might have been more.

Fully set up ATS chest rig, or a TT MAV would run about that much.

Psst.... the Defender has Level IIIA soft armor in the front. You can get an extra pre-cut panel for the back for about $100.

I can second the TT MAV rig, as that's what I use.

OP, you might also consider a good belt setup. I really like my HSGI belt.

I know most like hardware solutions, but just to throw something out there buy a series of nice training DVDs and don't just watch them as entertainment like many people do but really go to the range and run the drills.

If it was a higher dollar amount I would suggest a trip to a solid shooting school. Guns and hardware are nice to own but it is technique on how to use the tools that count.

Ar500 Front/Rear/Side armor plates with the front plate having shooter cutouts. Then have her buy you a nice plate carrier for a early bday present.

There are one-day basic carbine classes out there in the $150-200 price range.

Then I'd suggest starting out with a solid belt rig. Either something like an Ares Ranger (http://www.aresgear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=6) with a couple pouches, or an HSGI SGPB (http://www.hsgi.us/proddetail.php?prod=HSG-SGPB) with pouches. Either setup can be had (with 2-4 pouches, depending on choices) for under $150. If you're going to a carbine-only class, then you won't need a holster (which would likely put you over budget).

If you already have a solid belt, then I would just suggest some quality pouches, and maybe a TT MAV rig.

What didn't you like about the HSGI belt?

I hate the idea of any kind of vest just gets in the way personally. If you are looking for gear this leg rig through Chris Costa looks nice if you can catch one in stock.

other than that I would say ammo no need to put any unnecessary **** on your rifle.

Ah, makes sense. Having the right size belt helps a lot.

Leg rigs/sub-loads suck.

I vote for gear that you need for classes.

My vote is a Battlecomp 1.0. Worth every penny in my opinion, reduces muzzle rise almost completely and you stay on target for very very fast follow up shots.

If you're not set on one of those and don't have plenty of either, my vote is for magazines and ammo. God knows there's a decent chance that both of those may be hard to find and going up in price someday soon.

edit: Just saw the post that said you reload. Make it primers and bullets :)

As for comps, I just picked up a Dragon Head comp and really like it. For the money it is great.

Why not just buy ammo and imrove your shhooting skills?

Subloads massively suck unless they're the only way to accomplish the task.

A warbelt over your standard belt and a couple mag pouches would be my vote.

I know a padded belt has already been discussed but think it is a great idea. I went to one and am very happy. They are much more comfortable over longer periods of time. And when you're done you just unbuckle them. There aren't any belt loops to mess with.

True. But it seems like all of the 'cool' vests are also plate carriers, which is why i haven't bought one. I wish they made a molle vest that wasn't a plate carrier (not some airsoft stuff) so I can set up my vest the way I want. Oh well, it was worth a shot lol

I have a nice inexpensive one from ATS. It's simple, lightweight, and holds 4 magazines.

When I say nice I mean well constructed. I have never used it in the 2-3 years or more I've had it. I prefer a belt rig over a chest harness.

It's not exactly what i'm looking for, but close. I'm about to start a new thread so i don't hijack this one. Good luck on finding a good xmas present!
