Milsim is a mindset, not a kit list.
That being said, buying a whole bunch of repro shit will just get you killed faster when the big kids come out at night, repro gear tends to do lots of funny shit under NVGs.
Go by a surplus store and look for the stuff they sell for cheap, used issued gear from the US is usually half the price of new reproduction gear, works better, looks better, smells awesome.
All you need to "milsim" is the right colur bdu, a hat, shoes (hiking shoes, boots, etc), a small backpack with lunch and 6L of water, a light chest rig, 5 low caps, a gun and the right fucking attitude. You will run light, you will stay hydrated, eat well, and if you're super cool you might even kill a guy. EDIT; Eyepro is important. Outdoors most people use ballistic glasses. Buy real, buy once.
But most importantly, with the right fucking attitude, you'll be a key element to your team which your command will enjoy having around. Without it, people won't like you, and that's what really counts.
So heed our advice, or don't, I couldn't care less. It'll just be another dickhead at the milsim game dressed to the tits and gasping for breath after 2 hours. There are plenty of them.
Ár skal rísa, sá er annars vill
fé eða fjör hafa. Sjaldan liggjandi úlfur
lær um getur né sofandi maður sigur.
