    WW2 games anywhere

Olive green Goretex Bivvi bag.  this is part of a plan to simplify travelling to WW2 games.  As I don't have a car, I have to take camping gear airsoft gear and WW2 gear (which ends up meaning a big heavy rucksack), on the train.  The plan is to put together a Swag roll (sleeping mat and sleeping bag inside a bivvi bag rolled up together) and attach it via blanket straps to the P37 webbing.  I can then travel in full ww2 marching order webbing and save lots of time setting up camp when I arrive into the bargain.

£30 from Britishmilitarysurplus.co.uk

Also added a green general service shirt (£5) as a step towards a jungle green loadout.

I was considering buying one of these as I currently have the model under your one. Have you had a chance to see how it performs yet?

Well that settles it - I if I see a big black bloke I am shooting him then

The UV-5R is a very capable handset. Earlier versions were plagued with firmware issues but that was ironed out. I have the GT3 MK11'S (a rubber cased version with a better antenna) and its faultless.
Which brings me nicely to, what did I buy today?

I got a Z-Tactical Bowmans style headset with peltor PTT and some camo creme because I'm double hard. Lol. (I will review the bowmans in another thread once it arrives)

Oh also 2 pair Dpm Trousers, 2 shirts, 1 smock, 1 dpm ubacs aaaaand a bergan.

You've got to watch out for those bags, a mate of mine had one in fake multicam and the stitching went after a week of exposure to loads and the elements. I'm sure it's OK for airsoft though

I have one of those, great little bag.  Only flaw is that the webbing used for straps doesn't have enough friction against the buckles so they will come loose or detach from the bag occasionally.

I was considering buying one of these as I currently have the model under your one. Have you had a chance to see how it performs yet?


As a HAM radio it's very good, as an airsoft PMR446 radio I prefer to use the Baofeng 888s, It's lighter, less complicated, smaller ariel, and the battery seems to last longer. Both have good range in low power mode and will out range a lot of dedicated pmr radios.
The programming takes a bit of getting used to but it's much easier to program the 888s with a pc than program the uv5r manually.

The uv5 has a big weak screen that would render the unit useless if it gets broken, lots of flimsy buttons and weak plastic, it wouldn't stand up to many shots and still be functioning. The 888s has two twist knobs and a light. Even if the casings get shot or broken it's just a casing the rest of the radio should work fine.

It's also very easy to end up on the wrong channel with the uv5r, inadvertently mashing the wrong buttons could land you on the wrong frequencies without the unit even beeping.

Performance between the two are identical as far as I have practically found. But the 888s is lighter. The headsets they come with are pretty good too to be honest.

If you only want to use the 8 PMR channels like most airsofters do then the 888s is better as a a dedicated airsoft radio. If you want to use it off the field or want to use more than 16 channels then the uv5r is ok. The UV5RE is supposed to be more robust, but I haven't seen or used one.

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2a2dc3a9af, comes highly recommended from me.

And of course ... Blah blah blah ..... Legal issues ..... Blah blah..... Ofcom..... Blah blah blah ....... Bunnies will die at 5mw ........ Blah blah for l33t use only ...... Blah blah usual radio bullshit.

To make your gun more accurate, you must first adjust the nut behind the trigger.

I don't actually have my hands on it yet, and it might fall through yet... 

...And I've not technically bought it as it's from a swap. 

But! On Friday, I ought to have a WE SCAR L in my possession, RA Tech barrel, hop and trigger, 7 mags, black with snakeskin camo job, in exchange for my custom L129 DMR.

I had a black one of those as a school bag for a while :P Eventually it became over filled with textbooks and wayed a ton. Had to opt for a smaller bag as it was giving me back pains.
