Just picked up a 2nd hand full face mesh mask to have an experiment with.

 

I'm half tempted to buy some grey wool to put a tactical chin warmer and eye shades on it and wear it with my pakol, but i've had an idea in the back of my mind for these things for nearly 2 years so that is most likely the way i'll go - turning a section of it over the mouth into a hamster cage stylee door to allow easy drinking and smoking...

 

 

That will be the most ridiculous-looking thing ever. Why not just get a lower half and then pull it down to your neck when you want food/drink/smoke?

Because Liam, ever since i got shot just under the eye between a loose 1/2 face and goggles, i wear them with 2 straps, tight to my face so they don't move when i run -

 

which is a pain in the hole to fiddle with, especially if i'm also wearing a headset.

 

A simple door that latches tight back in place - what could be simpler to operate?

You could always use a neoprene mask, then you could add a zip? :D

Ian, it may be easier to have one side of the mask with Velcro, so it could be opened and pulled aside.

Tuesday, component-shop stuff to keep the electric guns ticking over. They do an extremely good deal on a set of kit for soldering.

KJ Works M700 Take-Down.

 

With 2x 30 round mags nine ball bucking and a Prommy hop tensioner.

 

Gun is pumping out 520 fps on green gas so having to down grade to 144a giving 480 fps at room temp until I have the CO2/HPA rig to regulate it to bang on 500 fps. Need to sort a 6.01/6.03 tightbore as soon as poss too, http://www.surplusstore.co.uk are stocking the Madbull SS TBs now which I am tempted with, but they are AEG barrels so not sure how to do the conversion so may have to get the Falcon inner barrel set when it comes back in stock at ehobby asia

just to warn you that the actual soldering iron is of low quality, and has great difficulty heating the solder to an appropriate temperature, the rest of the kit is pretty decent.

Interesting, will have to test it out, thanks for the heads-up. Luckily I've got my grandad's old soldering iron that was handed down and probably made in the 50s but still gets hot pretty much instantly, so if the new option isn't up to task I should still be alright overall.

Those old skool soldering irons are great for getting hot quick, but just be aware that the semiconductors in MOSFET set ups can be destroyed by overheating. If you're going to solder onto the board with a spanking iron, use a crocodile clip on the nearest components to act as a heat sink.

Today I did buy...some white nail polish...

 

For filling in the trades and 'safe/fire/auto' on my gun, always think they look nicer in white!

 

And I can also now get that French nails manicure I've always longed for to boot!

Who says airsofter can't look FABULOUS.

 

My half face mesh mask came today. Not the most exciting purchase but better than having to pick my teeth off Tac House's floor............

Was looking to get a pair of Merrell sawtooths but couldn't justify the price of importing them when I could probably pick up something similar in the uk for half the price. I was browsing eBay and came across some TMC Sawtooth copies and for 19.99 I thought I'd give them a try. So far I'm really impressed with them. For the price the quality is superb. Obviously not as good as the merrells but for once or twice a month airsoft use they are fine. Ill update once I've used them for a while to see just how they hold up.

New warrior stuff,

PLB belt, firestorm hard knuckle gloves and 3 'quick mags' all in OD (obviously).

The quick mags are like hsgi's tacos only a fair bit cheaper, quite happy with the lot- just need to get to a game to try it all out.

I've heard those things leak around the join, not sure about the validity of this though... watch out anyway :)

How much were those gloves?

Assuming you're talking to me? just under £20 or there abouts, they seem decent enough, all real leather and nomex, sizing fits my hand better than oakley's gloves do- i've always found the oakley's fingers a little short.

Obviously I've not used them whilst skirmishing yet but they seem pretty solid and should hold up to abuse well enough.

£20? They look pretty good, most of my gloves are getting a bit tatty so I might purchase a pair. Give us an update on them after you've skirmished with them?
