I imagine if a bb got a solid connection with an actual bollock it'd hurt a fair bit but I've only ever had a bit of sack contact which isn't that bad. With a couple of layers it's nothing to worry about. You have to be very unlucky or in something of a dubious position to get a proper smacker on a knacker.

 

Maybe I'm over thinking it a little...

The places that hurt are where the fabric of your clothes is tight against your skin. Loose fabric will take the energy out of a bb. Unless you wear lycra or spandex trousers, you are fairly safe. Really baggy clothing made of heavy material will provide excellent protection.

What really hurts is being shot on the love handles

 

This, I yelp like a bitch when a beeb hits the muffin tops

Ears are a howler I've had my eyes watering from those hits before; fingers (the closer to the nail, the worse) and for some reason that gap inbetween my PC and my belt stings like a bitch. Never get shot in the rig itself (and I do pay close attention plus it's CQB so you notice), always right in the small area of shirt that's tucked in tight with no cordura over the top.

 

Unless you're really unlucky and in a sort of crouched position which causes your trousers to get pulled tight in the groin and then take a shot in that area while in said position, it's never gonna hurt really. In a normal standing position trousers will always have a fair bit of slack in the material to soak up the energy. Also the zip makes the surrounding material a bit less flimsy.

that gap inbetween my PC and my belt

 

This. Every damn game. I swear on one day every swinging dick and his dog was aiming for the squishy bit of belly between my chest rig and my battle belt. Came home looking like a slab of corned beef :(

and the arse. Two shots to the arse point blank hurst pretty bad (nearly said screaming then thought, better not lol)

You too?

 

At The Stan a couple of years ago I was leaning around a bush, on uneven ground so one leg was outstretched and the other scrunched up, which stretched my kecks tight across my arse. Someone had managed to creep pretty close without me noticing... an actual double tap to the anus. Literally the bum hole. After day 2 I stopped eating. At the time it got nothing more than a grunt from me. I mean it hurt, but it was more of a surprise than pain. Maybe it was just because i was well adrenalised...

 

The game was a "Blackhawk Down" defend the chopper game (although the chopper was left to our imagination) - a small area with limited cover and the opposition given free reign across the courtyard to attack from approx 120 degrees of approach, with 2 snipers on the roof of the building opposite at whom we could not return fire (because the site is surrounded by active businesses and houses so you can't shoot up as BB's could leave the site) - so it was pretty hectic!

 

Anyway, by the time I got home it was sore. After the 1st crap it was very sore. Later that day i bought some haemorrhoid (and try spelling that without recourse to google) cream. After the 2nd crap I decided i didn't want to risk a 3rd until it had healed a bit :'(

 

Yeah, it's funny. Even I find it funny now. By day 2 after the hit it was really not funny.

 

As it happens I often wear a custom bum-rig which is a waterproof pad hanging from elastic straps from my belt, to put something i can sit down on no matter the terrain, because i have a medical condition which causes a lot of pain in my extremeties - sometimes i just have to sit to get off my feet. Didn't think i'd need it in a CQB venue.

 

When I 1st started wearing that a few people took the piss. A few people asked about it and although they didn't say anything I could tell they thought i was mental. I used to say "you'll all be wearing them soon". If you look at pics of Russian SF these days... yeah, they have them.

2nd AIF (2nd world war Aussie). Australian Imperial Force is an organisation created separately from the normal army (militia). The Australian Army was not allowed to operate outside Australian Territory by the constitution. The AIF was not the army so it was not bound by this rule but had to be entirely formed of volunteers.

1st 2 pics are early war. A mix of WW1 Australian gear and British gear. This is based upon pictures of Aussies during the early Libya campaigns

Late war (jungle). By now the Aussies are working with Americans so you see American influences such as the lace up gaiters and I am using US HBT trousers, which the Aussies are known to have managed to obtain.

Here I am at last, nearly ready for my first game.

 

What am I missing? Apart from a pistol?

 

I've got ammo, rifle, eye protection, hydration, med kit, iPhone playing 'Ride of the Valkyries' on repeat through low-profile ear peice, monocular, spare gloves and shemagh.

Always come prepared!!! I had always assumed that these items were essentials, perhaps not the iPhone but I can imagine humming 'Ride of the Valkyries' and having to concentrate on fighting a battle at the same time could get exhausting!!!

Thanks, couldn't quite tell, I'm more fascinated about the rear two pouches, they look like they're just hanging off and wanted to know if they got in the way.

Boots?

 

You don't need a pistol. They are fun and of course there are 'pistol only' games here and there, but you'd almost certainly get more use out of a BFG or even a back up AEG. How are you doing for batteries and charger? Cleaning rod and alcohol swabs? Silicone oil?

 

You may find that a shemagh over your mouth makes you uncomfortably hot, but everyone has their own attitude towards the risk of losing teeth. Personally the idea gives me the shivers so I run mesh masks = ultimate BB protection and not sweaty like a cloth solution.
