Pair of spangly dangly SureFire earplugs to try and stop my tinnitus getting any worse. Nice and comfy!

EP3's are not too bad, but tbh all multi-chamber stylee plugs suffer from 2 major drawbacks - 1) they are only as effective as their fit in your ear'ole allows, so do not be afraid to modify them to make sure that they do go right inside, so that those flanges make good contact with the walls of your ear canal forming completely enclosed chambers inside, and 2) the more effective they are, the less you will be able to understand speech, because they attenuate upper frequencies much more than lower, which is the area where the sounds which distinguish consonants fall, such as the difference between the plosives "P" and "B"...

 

If you are serious about ear protection, you need to have plugs tailor made for your ears. I use these. They are very comfortable and give around -30dB protection. However they are still useless against low bass and subsonics, so you should still do your best to avoid being in rooms with pyros...

These are made with Hocks Noise Brakers http://www.hocksprod..._noise_brakerĀ® so they claim to reduce high SPL sounds while still allowing normal hearing of speech. We'll see. If that doesn't pan out I'll be looking at the Peltor electronic 6S ear defenders which I know work well having used some for shooting.

Tactical Dalmatian as well haha

Just purchased a new pair of Czech Army jack boots to replace my old (read: finally disintegrated) ones. Size larger than I usually wear but at £15 I couldn't pass it up. Also got a new Czech ushanka to go with them for the back breaking price of 99p (gotta love eBay) with £2 postage.
Nothing quite says "SURPRISE!" like a shotgun.

Just purchased my Warrior Assault Systems DCS OD Plate Carrier with 3 quick mags. Should hopefully be with me in a few days. This will be the beginning of my loadout (will try and get some A-Tacs FG clothing in the near future)! :D Also gonna get some velcro patches soon.

 

Quick Q: Does anyone know where I can get a custom velcro name patch for cheap?

Bought my first set of pyro (mk.3's & a blue smoke grenade) esterday at red1. The first one I threw into a doorway, but it managed to hit the top left corner of the door frame before bouncing back towards me. I've never ran so fast in my life...

Indeed, try having a mk5 go off at your feet when youre stood in a short corridor. I had never experienced temporary hearing loss before then... Quite a surreal experience

Been there, done that, got the tinnitus to prove it.

 

One of my first trips to the Mall I was coming up a set of stairs into the back of one of the shops. There was a small (6'x8') room at the top where there would have been a couple of doors originally. In the ensuing melee, three BFGs and two Mk5s came into the room and went off near simultaneously. That was fun.

More like "don't want to use up my one limited respawn" :P

Funny that, last game of the day and everyone wanted to use up their last bits of pyro. Everything was being thrown and one of those ball grenades blew up by my feet, that made my ears ring for a while.

My regular site has a remote control... I hesitate to call it a car, but anyway it gets rigged up with crow scarers. Forget your mk5s, those are properly loud.

I must see a video of this scaring the sh*t out of a newbie, does it have a first person camera for getting around?

Yeah surprisingly high quality too (I think front and back but may be wrong) , controlled from a briefcase with all the controls and camera screens built into it.

Try a 12g blank posted into a small breeze lock room... Glad I was wearing ear protection, the other bloke in there looked like he'd been punched.
