    Seems someone wanted to stand out on the firing range! Modified from a standard ABU jacket:

    So nice I just bought it! Will look well with matching hat and trousers at the next club shoot.

    Well done,

    Someone definitely put in some good work..

    Looks just like the standard USMC OG shooting jacket...

    Enjoy.

    Excellent! I thought one of you camo geeks would want it Wink As Sal said, some really good work put into that.

    Funny coincidence. Yesterday I was driving around with a retired USAF Lt Colonel who was telling me about a friend of his who was the instructor/coach for the USAF pistol team. Then a few hours later I see what might have been used by a USAF rifle team. Weird.

    It was interesting that the seller was well known to the UK members of this forum for flowery descriptions and high prices. The former was true for this item but the latter was not!
    All it needs to be perfect is a sling retainer on the left shoulder or upper arm which I will soon add.
