    In a slightly different way of answering - one thing I think should be in everyone's kit is a small toolkit of sorts/multitool. The amount of people I hear at game days that have an issue arise and aren't equipped to sort the small issues amazes me. If you have something on your kit that needs a tool, pack it. Obviously your not going to want to bring stuff to do a whole strip down of your gun but I'm talking maybe a multihead screwdriver (there's a few decent ones on the market that don't break the bank), Alum keys for whatever size you know your kit needs and maybe a pair of snips. I constantly get asked while working if I have this that and the other and while I always have a kit on me I don't always like lending stuff out as I've had things come back to me in shit condition or not come back at all (maybe slightly my fault for not chasing them for it back) So my favorite non-airsoft stuff is the things that allow me to play and keep playing.

    Toolkit for when something shits itself Lowa z-8N GTX boots. I wear them for about 60 hours a week outside of airsoft. Relatively expensive, but having worn them for maybe 2 years now with no visible wear, I wouldn’t go back to cheap boots ever. Warrior assault systems Yorkie pouch (apparently its for pistol mags..) for that mid game sexist sugar hit.

    ???, what we talking about, clothing, footwear, the car, the dog ?, the list could be endless. or do you mean "kit" of a civilian nature, but that has its roots in the military/survival etc etc ? such as taclites, go-bags, that kinda thing.....

    How about this chap? Wants £400 for a two tone CA M249. Comes with two batteries, a charger and the bloke is kind enough to chuck an unjamming rod into the mix as well!

    The issue you’ll have is cost. Getting everyone to buy lo caps after buying mids/highs for so long is going to put a cost on the game. Will probably put people off.

    I have a 2 pairs of converse combats that are respectively 8&7 yrs old that cost me a fair few beer tokens to import from the states (back then they were still owned by converse and NOT Adidas so were still best quality) looking a bit ‘well loved’ now but still good to go . you get what you pay for ? plain or biscuit&rasin ??????😍

    I’ve got an old Adidas washbag , the ones you always get at Xmas with a can of smellies and shower gel in it that’s got a small gameday tool kit in , it goes to every scurmish (one of those things i put in my bag automatically now) has a set of different screwdriver and allen bits , the handle , a small adjustable spanner , leccy tape , small pot of silicone , tube of super glue and a load of old ‘bits’n’bobs’ screws , nuts , bolts and a couple of the little RIS clamps off the base of scope mounts that I’ve accrued over the yrs ! Doesn’t take up much room at all but I consider it as important as anything I take with me . As to non combat kit ? Nothing really springs to mind but I do always have a folding camping chair in the boot of the car for when I tool up at a scurmish and either all the seats are gone in the safezone or there was feck all to start with ! 🤦‍♂️😉

    Communication is key as everyone else has said. Not only because silence leads to uncertainty, but also because you may have sent a shop a gun that cost you a small fortune. I want to be very sure of who I send mine to as some of them cost over £1k As for FRV.. I messaged him first to ask questions and he answered, explaining the multicam material was on order and was I okay with a few week wait before I ordered. I was happy to wait so I ordered it.

Has never fired properly since Has lost the TM magic, certainly Triggers Broom for sure Been meaning to swap out the internals back for the the original and put the 'new' bits in my ASG that for some reason insists on firing two bbs at once to end up with two working guns rather than 2 paperweights for about a year I think, but im lazy

    Low Cap Only Games

    Yup, that was how my local one was run. Or in effect, they said: 2 x hi caps, or 6 x mid caps for AEGs. And something like 90 rounds for snipers and 200 for DMRs. However, 600 rounds would be 20 x 30 round real caps, so it's still nowhere near the paucity of ammo that I suspect Seth is imagining as part of his master plan to turn airsoft into a training and recruitment exercise for Her Majesty's Armed Forces. If you want to run a real (pretend) milsim, you'd be looking at more like 6 x 30 round real caps, or sub 200 rounds per player. People can have fun with that - to wit, the GBBR squad I was playing with - but it won't be everyone's cup of tea, and you'd want to think about what happens to players who run dry.

    Low Cap Only Games

    Bear in mind that any mid or even high cap can be turned into a low cap just by loading fewer BBs. You're trusting the players to know how many they need to put in to get $REAL_CAP_AMOUNT out, but then the whole game is based on trust. If you're going to run games that way, I'd approach it with an attitude of encouraging and assisting those who want to play that way, without being too fussed if some folk choose to run sneaky mid-caps. I enjoyed a limited ammo milsim-lite that I played. Actually, I ended up as the boltie sniper/medic attached to a squad of GBBR players, so we were pretty close to real-cap play. But it's not something that I'd want to do every weekend.

    Low Cap Only Games

    Aaahh now to me this is a totally different ball game , if I run my Gas AK then as each mag hold 35 bbs and weight a ton I only have 6 mags (and they ain’t cheap either!) BUT the bbs are of a heavier weight and a lot more accurate and have a greater range than using my ‘normal” ammo in my AEG’s I do feel I need to play a different game as I start out knowing I’m most definitely on a limited ammo count so I do find My self being so much more carful with my shots as these new constraints changes the whole dynamic of the game ?

    I play all year round, inside and out with real caps (gas mags). Never felt outgunned once. I pull the trigger when I’m aiming at someone and more often than not, that single BB hits. Don’t need to spam a million rounds into a wall

    Nah not tonight I won’t be I’ll be there next week. The rentals are pretty shit. G36 rifles that have been around the block a few times. They have a couple of ak47’s They sometimes rent out if you can get one of them then you’re in with a fighting chance. You’ll get looked after though man don’t sweat it mite see you another time if you decide to go back

    i think mid caps are preferable, yes the ammo capacity is higher but imo it's equally offset by the lack of range and accuracy compared to a real firearm so for simulation purposes it's close enough. plus insisting on low cap only tends to discount folk, when i've seen ammo limits being used it's along the lines of "2 hicaps, 6 midcaps, or as many low caps as you want to carry", lets most folk in whilst still enforcing a sort of limit to ammo.

    I've often thought of taking a donkey along to use as a pack mule. Yesssss, nice find sir, thank you. The lack of the word "airsoft" in the description is a great way to stop the riff-raff from getting it. I have a cheap Odin copy. It works fine. Yes, the handle on the winder comes off after the slightest of use, but it's not rocket surgery to bodge something else on. I use a cable tie.

    i've been using mine solid since they first came out on evike with zero issues. i've heard the copies are worse although it must be materials as the design is a near perfect dimensional copy. i suspect part of it may be the use of the slipper clutch, i've heard folk setting it too tight and it ends up breaking the wheel although that's also on the original.

    sadly i think they don't do an mp5 version, the idea was they were going to publish stl files for different adapters, but they only came out with g36/ak/ump adapters, although i'm sure some enterprising chap has got an mp5 adapter out on one of the various 3d printing sites.

    Mmm, sorry, but that's not a great choice of mask. One strap is always going to be problematical, and full mesh can make it hard to look down your sights. I agree with bodging a strap over your head, but long term, one of the half-cloth OneTigris clones with two straps solves a lot of problems that you didn't previously know that you had until you started sinking money into airsoft. "Foldable half face mask" is a good starting point for searching. Ear protection isn't vital, but can't hurt. I mean, it'll hurt less.

    Small toolkit (multitool, allen/torx keys, few spares like screws, pins and a hop bucking, unjamming rod, batteries for dots and radio) along with a real life saver on our field, a quality pair of gardening scissors.. And a glass cleaning cloth, thing's essential when you're a sweaty pig like myself

    I absolutely love my tactical mag man bag. I take it onto the field all the time when I just CBA with webbing and rigs. It's got elastic loops on the inside to hold 12 mags, Molle on the outside for more pouches, I can get a pistol in it when I use 8 mags internally. My shooting partner hates the fecking thing. All of the plastic buckles and clasps are made out of the finest Chinese plastic.. and break in the post... I do not recommend the bag. If you replace the plastic bits with a set of climbing carabiners then the thing is actually pretty serviceable. Mines in olive drab, and cost about £10 on sale from taiwangun a few years ago.

    3 pin Lipo battery?

    The lipo balance lead runs as follows by way of explanation. Common ground (normally black) then one red lead per cell. So for a 2S (7.4v) it’s three pins.

    3 pin Lipo battery?

    3 pin is for 2 cells aka 7.4, 4 pin is for 3 cells aka 11.1v Depending on how the charger works it should simply ignore the missing cell or you'll be able to set it to correctly charge a 2 cell.

    This is what I like about forums.. Everyone tends to know someone else in the real world and missing people are noticed and their knowledge, banter tends to be missed. Makes me want to go offline and lurk for 6 months and see if anyone misses me. You wont though haha.. But hoping duckys all ok!! Nice guy and super helpful!

    If you can't manage your workflow then it's not professional. If you can't keep Customers informed then it's not professional. If you advertise and sell stock you don't have then it's not professional. If you can't say No when you can't meet the demand then it's not professional. Bullshit that we are the cause of the issues. We are the purpose of their business. We are the Paying Customers. If a company blames their customers then they shouldn't be in business. Poor Management & Comms is THE cause of issues. === END OF TRANSMISSION ===

    Selling rifs and the VCR Act.

    If I saw someone on here that was a regular I'd happily sell to them with little to no background checks. It's clear that they have a history of playing Airsoft and so that's their defense, which I'm happy with. If it was a new user I'd ask for a UKARA. If they don't have one I'd ask where they play and for some pictures or booking info from a few of their games. Failing that I'd message the owner of the site asking if they'd heard of this person. If I don't believe the person to be of age I'd ask for some ID. Pretty common sense stuff really. Just chatting with someone you can usually tell if they've been playing a while. General questions and such like what guns do they own, how long they've been playing/where, etc in between responses.. I've had some people sell to me without asking for anything. Depends on the person I guess but that's how I go about checking people's defense.
