Description / Notes: this loadout is intended for riding a horse to gather supplies hence the leather clothing and saddle bags which are also good for protection, what is actually carried is mostly on the horse so my actual weight "other than the weapons" i carry is low to ensure manueverability in a pinch

Jul 19 2011, 3:07 PM EDTI have seen lockpicks in a few different loadouts so it would be great if somebody that owns and set and knows how to use them would enlighten me.
Don't forget a hatchet for wood, unless you want to go at fallen wood with that bowie short sword. Do you find this valuable?

Nov 21 2011, 9:46 PM ESTalot of Army Surplus stores around my area sell lock picks. Im a locksmith and have access to many. Picking a lock isnt that hard, with practice... There are a few different methods "raking" and manipulating the individual pins. Ive never really been formally trained, its a lot of trial and error. Do you find this valuable?
