Looks good, Kevin! One minor edit: remove the word "molle", that stuff wasn't around in the 80s (invented 1997, rarely seen before 2001). Plenty of 10-14 round belt pouches existed, of course (the U.S. military had the M56 twelve round pouch).

Thanks for the recommendation! I just ordered a cheap used copy through Amazon. Looks amusing

Keep in mind: if a particular book is only a quarter-inch or maybe a half-inch too wide ... you can bandsaw it down a bit. Sure, a bibliophilic crime ... but the book might now fit in your personal effects box.

Kevin, you might also be interested in "Lee's Priceless Formulas" which is another late 1800s compendium of ways to make things and poison yourself.
