You sir are the most experienced newbie I ever come across. :lol:

It's nice to have a newbie who does his own research and doesn't expect everyone else to do it all for him/her. It's a shame you're in south Wales, there's an amazing CQB site just outside north Wales, best site I've ever been to, proper FIBUA experience. :lol:

SWAT urban check them out, on site shop an' all. ;)
Good luck with the gun, G&P are awesome :D

Why thank you!

I'm trying to get the jist of using an airsoft rifle over an actual rifle, field stripping and all that - It still amazes me how real these look. I'll definately be looking for hop on a train a silly o'clock in the morning and getting up to different CQB sites then buggering off home again, just gotta get all my gear on lockdown first ;)

Thanks for the suggestion!

I spent a few hours on a few airsoft sites looking and seeing how much gear I need to buy. Now I just need to fork out just under 1000 for it all. I WANT IT ALL.

Just waiting on my pay cheque to come through, I will wait though - christmas coming up and all, the better half is expecting something shiny. Like diamonds. great.

Also wanna get into teams. If there's such thing, i'd love to get into tournaments, travel places and play against other teams, etc.

Not a warrior, but we use a different assault vest, depends on what you are - gunners will require more weight, if you're in a mortar team, someone has to carry the plate, who's carrying the GPMG etc, but generally, they can get hot under neath, snug at night, keeps you feeling safe is that makes sense.

How old are you? What size are you? The compact does seem good, I'll most likely get the M4 normal and add a load of sh*t to it. Want to get a camelpak on it for long games and get a radio system going if I ever get into a team.

well i'm 5'8" with a 36-38inch chest. I gave uktactical a call and they said it should fit as they do a medium version now. Also I am fully capable of carrying weight.
I'm going to get the open top mag pouches and probably buy the hydration patch a few more utility pouches and a water bottle holder aswell. Would get the fully loaded but out of price range

Yeah you'll be fine mate, get a medium and sink it around yourself, it's a bit like wearing a corset. Not that I do that. But yeah, try to keep it to a minimum aswell, more stuff you obviously have, the more it's going to bog you down - we used to remove some of our stuff on certain ops. Use what you need, I sincerely doubt you'll ever need a hydration pouch and a canteen holder and a canteen full of water is just dead weight. It's like taking a medical kit when you just don't need one in that environment because the first aider on site will have one.

yea, good points, thats what i like about the MOLLE stuff is you take what you need. The hydration is for games/combat type things for a quick drink, canteen for long ops if i need to make a brew but we'll see.
I'm planning on being about to take everything I need for an overnight on the webbing

If you're planning on spending 24 hours outside, bring some mess tins, hex-e cubes, DPM bivvy sheet with some bungees and a lighter. Foods up to you, I find spam or just beans and sausages work well. Don't get carried away with things calling themselves essentials when they'll just bog you down. If there's a river near by, just grab some puri tabs and toilet roll (nasty stuff).

Goodluck then!
