I gotta tell you fellas, you got what appears to be a dynamite idea *shifty eyes*:
Combining the Vigilant Spectre group with moving vehicles, ice, snow, and firearms seems to me like a deadly cocktail… but hey I just operate from cozy armchairs, so really what do I know? After reading their disclaimer though I was really put at ease haha:

Translation: You’re not operator enough to attempt what we do in the video. Fall back you newbs. Ask your mom’s permission before you even view this shit… we are THAT hardcore.
You can go back through the Vigilant Spectre archives to see my opinions on their past tomfoolery. I stand by what I said, but since then I have exchanged a few emails with Vigilant Spectre himself, and he actually seems like a good guy… I just never plan on shooting with him or his crew. Basically I’ll summarize it by bastardizing / modifying a Bruce Dickinson quote from the SNL “blue oyster cult” skit… Vigilant Spectre of course as THE Bruce Dickinson:
I put my rifle on; the sling over one shoulder just like the rest of you… except once my rifle is on I do stupid shit.
We can talk about “is this good for gun owners? Is this bad for gun owners?” until we’re blue in the face. Frankly in this case it looks like they are out in the middle of nowhere shooting into a ditch, and they all made the decision as adults to be there, so I don’t really care. I wouldn’t want to be involved with something like this in any capacity, but that’s just me. If I ever win Powerball I’m buying Vigilant Spectre a small helicopter so they can kick this up a few notches.
Does the mixing of several camouflages and fabric from several different eras drive anyone else nuts? haha
