This idea will never work , the players who are too lazy/busy to do it them selves either can’t or won’t lay out the money you’d be expecting for your service , and are more than likely to just pick up a second hand rig off the forums as theres a very good chance there not the type of player who even knows what they want from a rig , they just think “I want a rig , ooh that looks cool I’ll by that one !”

the ones who do know what they want and could afford the price you’ll be charging will definitely not be prepared to pay some one to do it for them , they’ll  just go to site like TaiwanGun put an order together for everything they want and spend an hr or so putting the rig together (like I and several friends have on numerous occasions) 

sorry matey but your idea will NEVER take off . 

Your acting like there’s no level of player in between newbies and pros, people see well put together plate carrier set up, they buy, simple. Do u have any idea how many people play airsoft and are unsure on what to wear, it will help them decide, it’s just another addition to airsoft stop hating matey

Most likely would take off, using TMC/Emerson and other decent Chinese brands it could work. What UK retailer sells a TMC JPC? People are more likely to pay a premium for a product that is being shipped from the UK rather than waiting months from China. People are failing to realise that patrolbase do exactly this and make a PROFIT.

 

The OP isn’t charging more than retail to put a bundle together as he will buy at a wholesale price! This business model could work with some effort and some thought outside of the box.

No it wasn’t that at all, your comment didn’t add to the discussion nor did it help the OP at all. 

 

OP wants to buy things at a wholesale price, he doesn’t want to sell anything more than retail. He wants to sell things as a bundle which may seem more attractive and save players time. You can’t compare it to paying someone to play for you as the core aspect of Airsoft is playing. 

Actually mate from my perspective Ash is spot on , very first post he says he wants a 40% profit mark up! So what I’ve said is equally accurate . 

Edit , “wait mths from China” you get it from TG and weapon762 in under 5 days so there’s that argument shot down in flames as well I’m afraid !

From a wholesale price, not from retail.

 

You’d think maybe I’d know a little bit more about what the OP intially meant considering me and him have spoken aboht this on numerous occasions.

 

He may have worded it correctly, I’m just trying to help him out and sort out any misunderstandings.

Weapon762 when they have anything in stock, that’s a fair point but if the OP is selling things at the same prices why buy from them?

So you’ve never seen someone sell a loadout bundle second hand? it’s the exact same idea but on a website with more selection.

Fair enough I can see how you’d come to your conclusion but OP means wholesale price.

19yrs this mth so yea I do have a vague idea ! 

Very start of this whole thing you stated as an example £60 for the rig and £30 mark up takes it too £90 , the market you claim to be targeting will NOT spend that on a rig from you . 

Im not ‘hating’ mate I’m simply pointing out that from post 1 to here there have been some very accurate comments from some experianced players that you’ve chosen to ignore or belittle and the ‘business plan’ as you put it has changed dramatically.

Sorry but I have to say that frankly your starting to come across now as bit of a petulant child trying to legitimize there actions after getting caught doing something wrong .

Just FYI I’m not part of this business plan but I do understand what the OP is trying to convey and it has been Misconstrued a little. The idea itself is plausible and could work out in my eyes.

Lol, was thinking the same thing, & if they're not one & the same, maybe they should get a room ;).

seriously though, what kinda eedjits put forward a business idea  on a public forum, which includes your pricing structure, revealing what your markup percentage will be, or so you hope, this isn't dragons den ffs.

if the OP & georgeturner don't like the responses of players with vast experience, fine, just go & do it, prove us wrong.......

This idea is bad and you should feel bad. 

 

Nobody is going to pay you a ridiculous amount of money to "put a custom loadout together for them", are you trying to be the Gok Wan of airsoft? "Oh DARLING, ACU is SO out this season, and MTP makes you look fat, sweetcheeks its ALL about the CADPat this season! Though I do hear tigerstripe is making a comeback later this year"

 

Customising your own gear and tweaking it to suit your own needs is a personal choice and not something you need, or want, a "pro" to do for you. 

 

I recently fancied making a belt loadout with those cool MOLLE Blast belts for a lightweight pistols only game, I went into a shop, picked some bits I thought would work, and spent half an hour fiddling with pouch combinations to get it to do what I need to do, job jobbed.

By rig you mean EMERSONGEAR/ TMC jpc? They are worth quite a lot, and could be resold quite easily, a lot of them only come from China and have long delivery times, I don’t know about you but I would prefer to pay a small premium for it to be delivered in the UK, this is exactly like multicam black uniform, it costs so much to get from uk £80/90 but you can get from China for £60

@KM-tactical300

 

I can see where you're coming from but to be honest continuing this conversation here is becoming a waste of your time. I probably won't buy from you but I know people that would, I say go for it and report back in 6-12 months and let us all know how it goes.

As Lozart has said , you may as well lock this thread now it’s going nowhere .

i think there’s going to be only one of two possible outcomes ,

one we’re going to see you pull up at a scurmish driving a Lambo 4x4 shouting “check me out losers !” 

Or we’re going to see you on the next series of ‘the sheriff’s are coming’ 

It’s gonna be one or the other !

I bet I'd earn more off my One Tigris Affiliate programme than you would eve make in a year trying to put this very disliked business model.

 

I like how I was attacked on the 1st page earlier for saying 40% mark up was unacceptavle and now in the last page the OP has hypocritically stated it is indeed a 40% mark up.

 

I wouldn't trust this guy to tie his shoelaces let alone charge me to thread my molle.

You’re obviously set on ignoring any feedback and getting pissy and defensive with the first people you’d market your service to (sign of a great CEO so good luck there), so you may as well just do it and watch it sink for yourself. If it works, then I’d be happy for you to prove us wrong.

Still messing about with mine. 

 

I tend to go for too much, then end up taking off a few pouches.  E.g water bottle isn't much use if you have a full face mask, which you can't take off unless in the safe zone, so might as well leave it in the safe zone.  😅.

I used to be like that.

Also used to swap and change my vest and belts for each game, got really annoying.

Now I have a CQB belt set up and an outdoor rig and thats it.

 

Although new guns now mean I have to adapt set ups a little so back to the start with it all haha

I bought a belt banged a dump pouch and a double pistol mag pouch on it plus the holster. Job done.

 

Same with my jpc I've put it all together, I have two M4 mag pouches 1 pistol mag pouch and my hydro pack on the back. Sorted. 

 

I don't see it changing cos I don't intend on buying any more airsoft gear for at least a year.

 

This thread is now for posting Spider-Man memes.
