Not too reflective, incredibly durable and has pretty cool feature which means you can get the light to come on just by looking at it :)

Anything else anyone can think of I forgot?

Thinking I wont need a vest the first few games as I on hire gun or will I?

You won't need a vest until you need to carry a few mags, and if you're using hicap mags you won't actually need a vest at all, but they look cool. Best wait until you decide what AEG you want to buy so you can get something that the mags will fit into.

 

You might want to think about gloves. Carbon knuckle for cool, Kevlar & Pyrohide for waterproof & impervious enough to give you the confidence to take your time throwing lit pyrotechnics, or for protection against the sting of being hit on the hand, these.

I've got a genuine pair, they were only £25, came new with the original tags on them as well. 

I had some fake ones prior that were £15 and both the fakes and the new ones have torn inside the thumbs, but not to a great extent, it's only something you'd notice if I pointed it out. They both have some odd little round things on the finger tips as texturing though, for grip. On the fakes they all came off so easily I thought they might've been stickers. On the real ones they're still there, but they've worn down. 

I actually think the fake ones are significantly more comfortable, but the real ones are real  :rolleyes: and they do look cooler without the daft shiny, fake carbon fibre knuckles. 

 

All in, I use the real ones, not the fakes. So take from that what you will. I've had them for about 6 months now as well, and I skirmish more or less every week.

Could you link me to where you can get these please Ed?
 

-Also Herosharks Mako's and Lower mesh arrived last night, first impressions pretty good! :)

Indeed. The bokken isn't rubber, its poly carbonate. (Misleading last post, just the knife is rubber)

 

Was expecting it to be a little weaker than it is. But you can strike really solid objects and it just keeps it shape. Already destroyed 3 boxes. The end is also for some reason strong enough to pierce its way through multiple layers of thick cardboard when you stab with it LOL.

 

Anyone looking at cold steel training products, DO IT.

Tempted to get another sword so i can have little battles with my brother XD Wanting an actual Tanto (Because tantos are just sexy) from them so might just wait til i have the cash for that. As of next month i'll have -£300 to my name unless i find a job soon XD

Most sites operate with a "it must bend about 70-90degrees" so no, these things are very rigid, so not really skirmish friendly.

I'm pretty sure my local site will allow me to use it during our private games when we book out their sites though. They know us to be safe and responsible.

 

Really it can't do any damage than an airsoft gun can. Yes its pointy and solid, but walk round a corner with a rifle and poke someone in the face, that's going to do a lot of damage too. Especially with some of the flash hider designs around.

They allow Cold Steel training swords at the GZ Weekender. I have one of these:

 

rubber-training-knives-92r14bbc.jpg

It's a semi-permanent part of my loadouts. Although knives and bayonets aren't allowed at ordinary games at my local site, they allow me to carry it for the cool factor - I just don't use it. Night games are a different story though  ;) I suspect that they don't care how rigid it is because I'm 45: I'm not going to go all adrenaline monster and accidentally ram it through somebody's throat! There are rules for knife/melee weapon kills though. Usually it's that you just tap the target. For stealth kills, you tap the target and whisper "knife kill" in their ear and they don't shout "hit".

Kamysh Assault Vest from Russia, £65 inc. postage. My black balaclava, looks like  :ph34r: and self-adhesive velcro strips turned up today, though they are white. Is fine for the backing of the patch, but need it ideally to be a more military colour. I'm thinking food colouring, bowl, splishy-splash, huzzah. In that order.  :rolleyes:

How can they not allow rubber knives??? Kill joys :P

Need to buy another rubber bayonet. Lost the last one after i walked into a tree. Fits on the G36 quite nicely, however doesn't lock unless you file down the plastic.

Yeah I know, but they let us use them at night and let's be real, how often can you get close enough to someone in daylight for a knife kill? Pretty much only if you're hiding behind cover as they pass, right? But at night... der der duh der, der der duh der... we enter the twiglet zone! I'm not so sure I want some of the kids we get running around with rubber bayonets on their guns either :lol: I don't know how of the top of my head, but I know it would end in tears!

 

Is that the standard rubber M4 bayonet that needs filing to fit a G36?

 

Edit: oh yeah, I just bought 2 x King Arms 200rd High Capacity BB Loader - BK - £8.43 delivered from AirsoftTiger111Hk (they're on sale and the supporter's discount is worth a whole 0.30 USD)

 

Also bought 10 pk of 20mm ladder lock buckles for webbing from fleabay - £1.98 (for custom PLCE webbing)

 

And a pair of Black CS95 kecks from Magnum for a nice fair price.

 

And an A&K 50rnd Mid Cap Mag for Dragunov SVD - £18.98 inc P&P from Action Hobbies

 

And an OD Soviet Star Cap Badge - £2.30 from cosmixx_one on fleabay
