yes.. you have the idea..
a lot of guys run a basic belt rig, with their radio, sidearm, ammo for the sidearm and some ammo for the primary weapon, plus a Individual first Aid kit (IFAK) and maybe a dump pouch and a utility pouch with small tools and room for a snack. this is your "first line"
Over this would go your rig.. either a vest or chest rig .. in this would be the bulk of your ammo, plus some sustainment provisions, lights , batteries, a reserve radio. this is your "second line" you would carry water as well.. probably a low profile camel back or bottle in a pouch
Over this would go your sustainment pack, extra clothes, food, water, tools, personal hygiene gear, and sleeping gear..or a ranger blanket depending if you were going to be out for a few days or not.
This is your 3rd line.
acquire your gear in this sequence.. build your first line.. this will be gear enough to participate in short skirmishes
then get your second line this will enable you to participate in longer duration games.. and day long milsim games
then get your third line .. and all the accessory gear to fill it up.. this will enable you to participate in 24 hour games.
