    what load out am I? :)

    Random Airsofter??? I don't see the need to label a "loadout". I don't even like that term.. Kit is kit. If you've gone to copy something from the real world that's fine but if you've just thrown stuff together you're just going to get stuck with the PMC (operator / contractor / mercenary) label. Once had a guy tell me that my kit was wrong since Italy don't use the pistol I had and my chest rig was completely wrong. Had to explain to him that I wasn't copying an Italian soldier, just Vegetato works great in the UK and the rest of my kit does too. I feel that too many people think in that way, especially those at F&O

    While in Hong Kong I treated myself to an early birthday present of a GHK G5 and some extra mags Being escorted by 4 armed police men to have it security checked was kind of cool, and if I did not know better, two of them may well have been airsoft players themselves as they had a brief discussion on the G5 while checking it was not a real gun.

    I DO have a Black Mesa Security Force kit from the Half Life series. Had one guy at The Mall shouting "BARNEY" on the other team all day

    I thought about getting a ghillie suit and sniper rifle and telling everyone I would pwn them (with my epic qui1cksc0p3 skillz) I reckoned that could be funny I've actually ordered a horse mask too.

    Crossdraw vest! Must be a n00b!! Just kidding, it's good to copy a loadout, but some people take it much too seriously. For example there was some team of blokes who turned up at Halo Mill a while ago in full MTP gear. Wouldn't be bad at an outdoor skirmish - but for a CQC like that it's a bit unnecessary. If something works well for you, use it. You shouldn't needlessly over-encumber yourself or use equipment that you don't like for the sake of authenticity. Modern day operators focus on speed and cutting down on weight for a reason. One thing I don't understand are vests with the magazine pouches on the right. Unless you're left-handed, I'm pretty sure it would be better to have them on the left.

    Double the fun: turn up as a video game character or talk to a serious milsim airsofter (you know these guys when you see them) and ask if their load-out is inspired by call of duty. Fun always ensues haha All joking aside (since I play at F&O sites), if the kit works then it's fine. It doesn't need to have a label. Granted some people (like myself) like to strive for a particular look (mostly eastern bloc style loadouts for me) it doesn't make you any less of an airsofters than those who go full milsim - something a lot of "serious" airsofters overlook. P.s. The kit looks great mate, what weapon is that?

    If you pulled off a 360 no scope in that get up I think most people would overlook your noobishness as you obviously have 1337 skills

    I just load from the dump pouches into a spare mag pouch during a quiet patch or something- allows you to reload quickly and stops excessive rattle

    Load-Out / Loadout Picture topic

    I've gone off dump pouches. While they're good for really quick tacticool reloads (provided you have open mag pouches and can actually reload quickly) they normally rattle around and make one hell of a noise.. if you have individual mag pouch or even divided ones I find its often quicker just to put them back in the pouch

    There are no plans to redevelop the area, mainly due to the high costs involved, we have all we are likely to get. Mainly as the rest of the site is used as an enterprise park.. How long we will have it obviously depends on the council, but we hope to sign a long term lease very shortly...

    If anyone feels like flexing their art-bone, I'm looking for a design featuring a Grim Reaper but instead of a scythe I want him aiming a bow. Cloak hood up, face on -ish, turned slightly to one side so the perspective makes the arrowhead pretty big / 4 colour: black (cloak & hood), white (skull, skeletal hands, arrowhead), chocolate brown (bow, arrow, background), dark forest green (cloak/hood highlights, background) - feel free to use any of the colours for high/low-lights / to make features contrast / as lines/pixels that could be embroidered to make colour shades.

    Thunder B's are great IMO - I have 2. Not cheap though - 1 x 12g CO2 capsule and 1 shell per bang (you can get the shells from Bullseye for a decent price, but all the same it's still not cheap). Like so much in life they need a bit of TLC and lube to work correctly...

    Question, Shooting in the home?

    I try to go outside and shoot but there are all these houses above us on a hill, and they always come out onto their balcony to chill so it's kind of offputting. I don't think they really see / care though.

    Just the front end of the 14.5" Avalon BCM gun. Waiting on a chance to take full shots.

    Try a TRMR, no pins to lose, no resetting tool either.

    that sounds about right, although I have 6 extra mags rather than 3 and got mine all for roughly £382, so for less than £10 extra from your calculations I got an extra 3 mags and got it before I found it in stock in a UK shop, not a great saving (roughly £30), but still a saving and was able to order it sooner. In this instance had the RM4 been in stock in the UK and was hitting 350fps out the box (like mine was after the spring had bed in) rather than the 325fps ish out the box UK guns seem to be I would have considered buying in the UK

    Inner barrel, you get what you pay for and a pdi is about as good as it gets.

    Question, Shooting in the home?

    Make sure nothing valuable can possibly get hit. Few people have had accidents with computer monitors, TV's etc

    Its a moving diagram of a typical (vers 2) AEG gearbox. The only important bits missing is the magazine, which is fed using a long spring in a mid cap or a wound spring in a hi cap and the hop up, which is the part that adds back spin to the BB as it gets shot up the barrel. Its this backspin that gives the BB its range (due to Bernoulli's principle if you want to get really geeky).

    Just to point out CatCrap is a type of antifogging you can buy not actual cat faeces. As for the things that work/don't work, pretty much everyone on the forums that uses goggles will have tried many of the stuff on the list, between us all they have probably been tested extensively and the main point is that as far as I can tell nothing actually stops it from happening it simply delays how long till it happens. That includes using fans like those chromatosphere ( ugh cant use the p word) guys use. Or just go for mesh, if you wear glasses maybe try contacts just for game days perhaps. It cuts out that issue altogether. If you solve the problem let us know so we can all do it!
