JW Ramp took this photo of his friend who wanted a new Tinder picture. This is what they came up with. BCM AR with DBAL, Surefire Scoutlight, Aimpoint T1 and what looks like Ramp’s bino MOD3 NODS. Who here uses NODS and Tinder? Perhaps not both at the same time.

    Taking it easy with the article writing prior to Shot Show??

    • Giolli Joker

      And still nothing written on the Hudson H9 after the initial preview…

  • Huh?

    What a bunch of tacticool garbage. Why would you run a light and NVG, assuming you expected to fight at night? I thought the DBAL (waste of money) had the ability to stream infrared light for NVG? Kind of dumb to use a conventional light in that case. I bet that dude trains so hard! I bet he operates on the next level with his tan Glock and Dbal.

    • KestrelBike

      C’mon man don’t bring the FDE Glocks into this. It was on sale.

    • Gary Kirk

      The surefire could have an IR head or filter at least one it.. But do agree with you..

      Clearly there’s a reason behind it or the operational operators who operate operationally on operational operations wouldn’t be doing it, mate. Cause, you know, maybe it makes tactical sense for blinding white light on occasion. Or the capability to actually look through your optic…that’s nice too.

      • Huh?

        Running a light with nvg on will blind you. That would be plain stupid. If you can’t see your sights/optic with nvg, why are you running nvg in the first place? Why not just a normal weapons light? Posting pics of people using stuff they are issued has no meaning here, as this “operator” is a civvie “operating ” in a stateside town somewhere, judging by the streetlights behind him.

        • Friend

          Nobody says you have to run them both at the same time…

          I am fully aware he’s stateside. And I’m not saying that he knows what he’s doing, merely pointing out that having a white light and nvg does not imply that you are stupid. There are situations where one makes more sense to use then the other.

          As for optics, this is somewhat irrelevant because he’s running a red dot, but have you ever wondered why snipers use weapon-mounted nvg? You can’t put your goggles behind the scope.

          • CommonSense23

            The reason snipers use weapon mounted NODs is I have yet to see a set of helmet mounted optics that allow you the clarification and magnification to take a 600 yard shot.

        • Blake

          Uh no it won’t. Which is besides the fact because they’re not used at the same time. See how his NODs are able to be flipped up away from his face? And how the flashlight has an on/off button? It’s probably because each part has an intended use, and neither works the best in all situations.

          Just to be clear, I’m not arguing that the guy is not a total douche; only that you don’t know what you’re talking about.

    • Richard

      You never know when you need to use seizure mode.

      • noob

        search and seizure mode

    • CommonSense23

      Show me one rifle that doesn’t have a flashlight from any unit that routinely works at night with NODs.

    • some other joe

      Because, e.g., mounting NODs to clear an unlit structure at noon is a waste of time. And especially if it has windows, now you’ve potentially got to decide on a room by room basis to go green or white. Even if lit, there’s plenty of dark corners to clear regardless of the environment. Weapon mounted lights are light enough and durable enough that they should be standard equipment on nay working firearm, regardless of the availability of NODs.

    • yeah

      You’re an idiot. Ever heard of transitional lighting? NODs don’t work in all lighting environments.

  • Alex Waits

    No suppressor, not tactical enough, will get no swipes.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    What a douche.

    • Ark

      Amen. Nothing says “I will probably be listed as your cause of death” quite like a Tinder picture in full tacticool cosplay.

      Maybe if it’s a picture of you actually on active duty in an actual war zone…maybe.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        His dates probably gonna end up duct taped to a lawn chair.

        • Ark

          Hey, now, don’t kink shame!

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            Its only kink if shes into it.

          • Ark

            Well, the…kinda girl who would swipe right on that picture.

          • iksnilol

            What? … the screaming “no” is just a part of the roleplay…

            ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

        • Dougscamo

          Yeah….from the picture he is definitely on someone’s lawn…

          • iksnilol

            For the love of Christ photoshop at least a Battlefield 4 wallpaper as the background. And maybe stylize the photo to match the style as well.

    • Nicks87

      I could be wrong but I don’t think women give two sh*ts about this kind of stuff. In fact if you aren’t police or military then this tacticool stuff probably scares the hell out of them.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Well, I know some women get off on all that crap but only if youre military. Otherwise, yeah, most intelligent women are going to look at you like youre an idiot.
