    For weapons, and military-type vests and wear...

    check out airsoft sites like redwolfairsoft.com and combatdepot.com

    They offer replicas of vests and guns, and those should run you a lot less than buying real ones.

    *noticed you had a S.T.A.R.S. Beretta, I assume a GBB from Tokyo Marui?

    That's loopy. Why don't you try dressing like me instead?

    It's easy. Get a blue sweater or pullover, and probably another long-sleeved shirt for underneath, because it's getting cold and we don't like wearing coats. Then get some flares or bell-bottoms, or anything that fits with a boot cut. You'll need to shred the leg at the cuff (or whatever the end of a pant leg is called), giving it that frayed Native look. Finally, grab yourself a pair of mocassins or those State Street pull-on shoes without laces. No laces or logos or anything. You can grab a pair at Payless Shoes for $20.

    You might want to grab one of those hippie multicolored belts that can hang down the side. And I may suggest a knife that can be attached to the belt at the back, but that's just because I got a gun pulled on me Sunday night, and Im a little edgy.

    Think Neil Young, or Cat Stevens, or Cliff Burton. Whatever. Experiment.

    Anyway (whew), on a more related note, I saw a mention of this thing in Games TM not long ago. It was pretty funny, actually, seeing this wierd collection of Nausicaa and the Mario Brothers. You'd almost have to invite them to your parties, if just for the free mushrooms and theological debates.
