I wanted to start a thread for virtual PCI.  Getting virtual PCI out of the way here saves you the time and hassle of doing it at the event after a long drive and is one less adminstrative box that needs to be checked on site by people that have no shortage of things to do.

Anyone else who would like to take part in the virtual PCI for US NATO forces, feel free to add yours to this thread.

Here is mine (image size width=700 height=500):

Pic 1 Uniform and Clothing:

1. M65 Jacket w/Liner
2. Sweater
3. PolyPro Top/Bottom x2
4. BDU Top/Bottom x3
5. Tshirt x3 (w/Dog Tags)
6. Belt and Watch
7. Knife, Pen and Pad
8. Leather Gloves w/ Liners
9. Boots x2
10. Sock A Plenty (more not shown)
11. Wool Hat, Cap and Scarf
12. Scarf
13. Gortex Top/Bottom

Pic 2 LBG, Packs and Tools:

1. PASGT Vest
2. Knee Pads
3. PASGT Helmet w/NV Mount

8. Mouse Box
9. LBG-Ammo Pouchx2, Day Pack, Canteen/Cup/Puri Tabletsx2
10. Flashlight

4. PT Cloths

6. More Waterproof Bags
7. Shelter Half
8. Military Cot (Not Pictured)

I think that covers all of the required gear plus some.  I did not take pics of back ups and other misc stuff I am bringing.

If more info/pics are needed to pass PCI, let me know.

Excellent work Dan.


Everybody notice that Dan has bandoliers for his spare mags. 

That is a VERY wise decision that many of you should consider doing as well.   I cannot tell you how many times over the years that something has come up all the sudden and I have found myself out and fighting with a bandolier over my shoulder while everyone else is still fiddling around.  Equally, when showing up to help out in a fight a bandolier of full mags tossed to the previously beleaguered guys you are showing up to help gets them green on ammo a lot faster than then ducking behind cover and reloading while you pick up the fight.

Just make sure you remember the bandoleer.  I literally just found a loaded bandoleer of STANAG mags from EW1 this weekend.  They still work!

So how many magazines should I have, and where do I get a bandoleer for M16 mags? The required list doesn't really specify how many...

The bandolier I have is kinda tight for the mags I have.

I was pretty uninformed when I bought it but it was only $7 with shipping.

Is there a better one out there?

Allan, does your response mean I am good to go and will not need to gear check on site at the event?

Yes Dan, you are good to go.  I've got you checked off already.  

Are your bandoliers 7.62 NATO ones or something?  Most of mine are pretty loose.  


@ Phoenix, we try not to make the required list a complete unabridged book of the dead.   As such, we just hit the "got to have" stuff.  The rest is optional.  Part of this whole process is the adventure of finding out that there is another little $3 item that can make life more fun.  Smiley

@ BWA, either style will do just fine.

Yeah, I have come across a lot of those little secrets surfing the forums, although I will undoubtedly discover a lot more there.

@Phoenix:  You hit the nail on the head.  I go out to as many training/ build weekends as possible.  I learn new things every time.

Looking over this gear, vs my gear I realized I have no tshirts! Should I buy 3 army surplus t-shirts? Or will any plain t shirt work?

I probably have at least 3 synthetic t shirts without logos or anything silly on them I could bring, but if cotton is the standard I would probably have to buy them.

You'll want to look for OD green crew-neck T-shirts, as that is what was being issued at the time. These were mixed cotton/poly, but not sure that part matters.

Excellent. Also, why is that not on the required items list?

Any suggestions which one I should shoot for, cotton vs poly? Poly will dry out faster, and I feel be generally superior, but I am sure someone knows which one is definitely better for realistic army life. Specifically the part about wearing these against your skin for 9 days without a shower.
