this is a really good eotech simulator guys
makes me want to buy a real one
I got excited because I thought it'd show how the sight worked with some fancy gif but instead I got a flash game.
I always wear a balaclava, and use either a respirator + Desert Locusts or a full-face mesh mask. I'm paranoid as hell about losing teeth in airsoft, as being a machine gunner means that most of the hits I take while in cover are on the head and I can vividly recount some face-hits I've taken while wearing my mesh.
An added bonus of respirators is that they vector your breath away from your goggles, even when wearing a balaclava underneath.
imma have to get a respirator
I don't wear face protection because it's not period accurate for my Vietnam war loadout. I'm weird, right? I'd take the risk of losing teeth and taking painful face hits instead of straying from historical accuracy.
Sometimes I wear a neck gatior with my modern kits though.
I put it under my chin when I have my full face mask on because I can't talk otherwise.
I'm kind of odd in how I wear mine. I use glasses with a neoprene half face, but don't have it up over my nose. I have the nose bridge part on my upper lip and the rest hangs down, it's supported there by my rig like a gorget.
I wear a head toque
Both comfy and classy
I'm going to make a quick rant after what transpired between my friend and I yesterday, and am wondering if anyone feels the same way.
My town is a very army-family type town. Now, see, the problem I have with this is, is that every kid in my town who plays airsoft and his dog wears ACUpat that's two sizes too big. All of these kids get everything handed to them by their military family members and I have to say it's kind of agitating to those of us that have to work for our stuff. For example, my friend's cousin recently sent him a legitimate SureFire 961, a box of chemlights, ACUpat BDU's (XL, my friend can't wear but a small.) Some boots, and some bullshit helmet that isn't PASGT or MICH. Now, yeah, I'll admit I'm sort of jelly, because who wouldn't want a $400 flashlight just handed to them for no reason? Though, there's a sense of hilarity in the situation. My friend's new SureFire is worth more than everything he owns for airsoft. He has a JG S-System with two hi-caps, a broken front sight, a $20 red dot, a cheap ABS Vert Grip, and the $400 SureFire. It's just kind of funny how is flashlight is worth 4x his gun. He was bragging to me, but I finally just told him; "I'd rather have a $100 [SureFire Replica] Light on a $400 gun than a $400 flashlight on a $100 gun."
As face protection, how about just cutting away the upper part of a gas mask and wear good goggles instead? As I busted the glass on my gas mask, I ain't using it until I've completly removed the glass from the hole and washed it and such.
I think like this
cut into circles
epoxy it on
Nah, it's so bad visibility in those anyways, I wouldn't use it to airsoft even if it was safe to use
That'd probably really fuck with the stability/strength of the mask and there wouldn't be much point wearing it. Doing the above is the best option.
Also, is there a good way of cleaning out the filter without getting cancer from the asbestos shit inside it?
Wear another gas mask while cleaning it, lol. But seriously, I don't think there would be anything that dangerous in it...
Dammit, there's some cool games coming up on the winter break, but most of them are going to be mainly CQB stuff, and going into buildings with 120 cm's of armalite doesn't exactly seem like a best idea.
I still have my CQBR front set and inner barrel somewhere, but AFAIK, short barrel + type 0 cylinder (no slots) = BB's doing some crazy shit.
How would regular M4 barrel length work with such cylinder?
Made in the 80's, it's safe?
Yes. The use of asbestos in filters is entirely apocryphal. That said, activated charcoal is some nasty shit and it would be best to take care anyways.
Went there once before for a rec game, had a fun time then as well. 2 people went in the water to attack the castle.
also holy fuck i need a headset for a motorola talkabout before this shit starts
Yo MI airsofters
If you ever go to a large event in western Michigan, tell me. All the cool stuff that you go to is mostly in the east, which is 6 hours from me. However, west Michigan isn't too far.
although im too big of a faggot to drive 3 hours west to bangor
Had a decent time playing airsoft sunday.
Went by myself since my friends weren't able to.
Chilled with some cool guys for 3 hours. Then they left, things went shitty.
my ak locked because it's shimmed so poorly. The one worker got really mouthy with me when i asked where an outlet was, dunno why. Taking a break til I fix my ak.
Try spacebar, it makes stuff go splat.
Neat, Magpul PDR AEG at SS12
I want to look at some eastern bloc shit.
go to red alliance
first topic i see "After a few years, Dboys FINALLY made the AIMS(death to Cyma)"
their elitism pisses me off. I really wish there was another eastern bloc airsoft site, one that isn't full of autistic kids.
lol cyma is better than dboys now.
It's also 100% white middle class kids who think communism is cool
Speaking of communism hows your ak doing stupideye?
