  1. It's been some time since I was active here. I used to live and play in SoCal, but I've recently been stationed at Fort Benning. Considering starting up BBwarz over here again, but I've got no clue as far as fields go. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
  2. I generally find that OD is a little too green for MultiCam.
  3. ...Really? Just PM the seller, rather than bump an eight month-old thread. You're more likely to get a response that way anyway.
  4. I think KWA offers a little more bang for your buck. Don't get me wrong, I love TM pistols (own a TM MEU and owned a TM DE), but KWA pistols perform great out of the box (not quite as good as TM, I'd say, but close), and also benefit from metal slides and frames, and the plastic, say, on their USPs, is well finished and feels nice, not plasticky like some of the TMs (like their MK23). KWAs cost either the same or less than a TM, and they're full metal, and perform well as a skirmish sidearm. There is much less aftermarket upgrades and parts available for KWAs, though. If you don't mind lack of metal, TM is an excellent choice.
  5. I have a couple books about Hatchcock. He and his scout/snipers (and he was one of the parties responsible for the formation and growth of an effective USMC scout/sniper training program) didn't use ghillies, but like Airborne said, they would use foliage as camouflage. I think I remember from one of the books, a while after the war, them talking about ghillie suits when they first started being used.
  6. Looks good. I would get a second flag patch (or two IR flags), one reversed and one normal, and put one on each side of the helmet. Unless comms are important for you, I would get the OPS-Core chinstrap. Those stock MICH straps are pretty bad. Aside from that, seems like you got all the practical things covered. For extra cool points, you could get a helmet light, either the ARC rail-mounting one (forgot its name), or a regular rail mounted one mounted on the ARC rails, or a SureFire helmet light (or a replica, of course). If you want a more modern set up, you can replace the MS2000 with a Manta Strobe and/or V-Lites, or some combination thereof. They're kinda pricey, though I think some replicas are out or are coming out.
  7. ...All heavy BBs are black? I see more white than black. What kind are you talking about?
  8. I've never met someone who purposely goes for headshots, especially not with the intent to cause pain. I'm pretty sure that people purposely going for headshots are just going to end up missing more, anyway.
  9. I haven't run into people who have enough time on their hands in the game, have a tricked-out enough gun, and have enough skill to accurately score headshots on purpose. I've never run into anyone trying to get headshots on purpose, since a single hit anywhere in airsoft is sufficient for a "kill," and people generally move quick to engage their targets (no time for thinking). Besides, the way I see it, if you're going for headshots, you're just going to end up missing most of your shots. Spheres are terrible projectiles, notoriously inconsistent, especially at range. On top of this, even the heaviest BBs are effected by wind, and their relatively light weight causes them to lose velocity much quicker than a heavier projectile. Have an issue with getting in the head? Tough, BBs are unpredictable, and headshots will occur by accident often enough. Likewise, your head will be one of your only exposed body parts whenever you're firing from cover. My advice? get some protection, in the form of a helmet and a mesh face mask. If you're worried about the back of your head, wear a shemagh or something.
  10. The only real benefit these have in airsoft is the lack of the locking lugs on the side. I like that, those lugs make putting G36 mags in a pouch a pain.
  11. I've got a Diamondback Tactical Fast Attack Plate Carrier, size large, if you're interested. Unfortunately it is in OD, but I sprayed it with khaki to tone down the green-ness, and I think it came out well. I've got pics if you're interested.

    Hello, all!

    While I can't say I'm familiar with you, I can certainly relate with you on the gear front. Gear is probably my favorite part about airsoft as well. Welcome aboard!
  13. Just curious, you say the only trade you'll accept is a TM MP7, yet if you want one, why don't you keep the one you have?
  14. Don't take the "anti-backyard airsoft" thing so literally. What he is doing is perfectly fine. As for how to tell which guns are upgradable, a general rule of thumb is that most $100 plus guns will be upgradable in most aspects. These are the MPEGs or Mid Priced Electric Guns, and generally come from China-based companies such as JG (AKA "Golden Eagle"), Dboys (their higher end offerings), CYMA, and a few other players. Those three are, in my opinion, the strongest players when it comes to Chinese MPEGs, and have shown the most improvement in quality and performance in recent years. Other companies, like Echo 1 and Cybergun, do not produce guns themselves, but "rebrand" guns from other companies, generally the companies I listed. MPEGs are usually based on the designs from "high end" companies' AEGs, and as such, will usually be compatible with most aftermarket upgrades with little to no modification. Some high end brands offer their own MPEGs, usually called "sportlines." These are usually plastic-bodied versions of their "pro line" series guns, and may or may not have different internal setups in order to cut costs. G&G's Combat Machines are an example of this. Sportline AEGs from companies like G&G and ICS are also great options for a starter gun, but, unlike their MPEG cousins, do not usually include a battery and charger. Like gorbasho said, I wouldn't worry about upgrades for the time being, but upgradability is a good thing to keep in mind, especially if you want your gun to last for a while. You can make a stock gun work fine and last a while, though simple upgrades like a quality tightbore barrel (from the likes of Madbull or Prometheus) and/or a hop-up upgrade are good choices for any gun.
  15. Recommending MPEGs is not being elitist, it's realistic advice. LPEGs are great for fun, plinking, and other around the house type activities. One thing they are not great for, however, are skirmishes. You might be able to hit a few people, but it's going to be tough, and you're going to be severely outgunned. Most people do not find this fun, especially as a beginner. If you buy an LPEG just to see if you like the sport, and then decide to upgrade to a better gun, it will cost more in the long run. If costs are a concern, I recommend going to a field and renting a gun once or twice, as this will cost a lot less, and you'll be getting a gun of a higher tier than an LPEG. Additionally, using an LPEG will not give you an accurate perspective of what the sport has to offer, and could turn you away. Mr. Jones, if you do decide to purchase a gun rather than renting one, I really recommend a quality MPEG over an LPEG. The three guns Bladez of Fury recommended are all excellent options, especially for the price, and include a battery and charger to get you going. You'll just need some BBs and eye protection, and you'll be good to go.
