It took over a year for me to get to his point. Most items were purchased as surplus from local dealers and eBay sellers, but several key items: the rucksack, Hi-Power, combat boots, and one of my C7A1s were purchased through the ASC classified sections.

With eight weeks to go, I still need to add photos of my two C7A1 GBBR rifles, my winter white cammo, and other assorted odds and ends.

The reason for doing these virtual inspections is to establish that you do, indeed, have all the required items, and to save time by not having to go through a kit inspection upon arriving at the event site. By the rules of the event, you cannot participate unless you have each and every required kit item (plus any other items you may need to keep yourself in the fight).
