Joey,

I forgot to mention this in the other thread, but do you know about Sierra Trading Post? Since you are in Cheyenne you might want to check it out. Its out on I80 heading towards Omaha I believe.

As for specific suggestions, who knows :lol:

Joey, my favorite "pants" of all time are the old 100% cotton BDU's [solid green] from the 'nam days. Plenty of pockets, stout, and baggy enough to be comfortable but not so loose as to get caught on stuff. If I could find more I would buy them all, but, I can't.

My last ripped-sewn-ripped-sewn thread bare pair just got a ceremonial burning this past weekend. Shot in jeans for about the 3rd time in my life this week, and they don't cut it. So, guess I am looking too.

When I am wearing an AF Team shirt I have to wear Blue BDU pants. They are fine. If I don’t have to wear that silly shirt, you will find me in a Hawaiian shirt and Levi 560's or Khaki BDU's.

Jeans...which become cut-offs when the knees give out. I use BDU's sometimes, but find the "rise" a little short. I have to go up one size from what my waist would indicate I ought wear to get enough rise. This results in them being awfully baggy.

Nordstrums, button fly RYE jeans. Patagonia, UTILITY pants, North Face "jeans" with the gaiter cut out, REI, synthetics but cna't remember the model. Basically a synthetic BDU that looks better for casual wear. All have good belt loops.

Try the 5.11s though and see if they fit :grin:

I prefer BDU's, and Denim, when the temps get up, I have some shorts in both Utility and Denim styles I like....

Just depends on what I am shooting, and when... Also, what rigs I plan on wearing... I don't like the BDU's for IWB.

My favorite pattern is Jungle Tiger, too much Woodland Camo for me years ago :wink: Also, prefer the 100% Cotton (winter) spec over the Cotton/Poly rip stop summer stuff, even in high temps, it wears better for me.

Patagonia stand up pants or duck pants and the North Face ones are ok, too.

The stand up pants are great because they have douple material at the knees and bottom.

I haven't tried the syntetics in a while. I allways seem to rip the hell out of them before the third time I've worn them. Maybe its time to try again. Maybe I'm just clumsy :grin:

I guess I'm not as tactically prepared as you guys, most days I am wearing Dockers or light wool Polo dress pants when I get to the range.
For IDPA matches and so forth I will often wear 5.11 pants or Columbia River EXP pants to save the knees in my dress pants.

YES!!! and vehemently so. They supported the PAX groups anti-violence tour and when emailed about it by a large amount of gunowners basically said f-off.
more info here:
