    Again, that's why it is up to command to keep track of it, just like the Mobile MASH units.
     
    But, regardless, without communication, we are all screwed...except those of us who have POVs to drive back to camp in.  IDK, we will just have to see how it plays out.  I don't feel comfortable leaving my personal assets in a box everyone else has access to, even if it is in a lockbox.  I lost 10,000 rounds at BH4 with a KWA Speed Loader, and only about 10-20 people even had access to it.
     
    Of course, at Copperhead, I was having issues with my $400 rifle, and left it at a Mobile M.A.S.H. for three hours, and upon my return, it was surprisingly still there.  This is supposed to be an honor-based sport, but you'll always have those who have no honor...and THAT is why I buy Condor gear as opposed to some of the higher priced stuff.

    Guys, I promise you that in the event of any strong storms, the AMS staff will make sure everyone is secure...and I speak from experience during the strong storms and torrential downpour we had Saturday night at Broken Home 4.
     
    But, in the event of hail, and basically anything short of a tornado, my tent can withstand just about anything (Military Issue) and is weather proof.  Find us and we can make some room for anyone wanting to escape some hail...even UFS guys...
     
     

     
    This is what my tent looks like...except mine usually has a CoST flag hanging out front.
     
    EDIT: This is a Bring Your Own Beer shelter

    At this time UGVs can't be used in any combat capacity. Just too hard to enforce and someone is probably going to end up smashing it....

    According to the Oklahoma Forestry Services, as of April 4,2016, the current county burn bans are only in the panhandle.

    For those of you who are concerned with your ammo being stolen or used without permission, I have a solution for you.  Head to your local Wal-Mart and around the Home/Office area will be some safe/lock boxes.  The SentrySafe lockbox that I have was about $13.00 and comes with two keys.  As you can see, a bag, bottle, and a speed loader can all fit in this box easily with more room.  Get you one or two of these, mark them with your name or initials or something.
     
    They also carry the SentrySafe 1200, which is slightly deeper than the CB12 model that I have, and walmart.com has it for $19.88 and it's fire resistant.



     
    One problem solved.

    Everyone on here complaining about their 90 or 120rnd mid caps. PTS ERG Mags (which are what I run) are 30 or 60 max.
     
    As part of a QRF which relies heavily on our gun trucks, I will give this new ruleset a chance. I don't necessarily agree with everything being changed, but I'll try it out. Hopefully it will all go smoothly.

    If there is water
    from DDAP available, drink it. It's loaded with harmless (to you) sulfur that serves as a natural insect repellent. If you wear a shemagh, soak it in that water and wrap it around your neck. This will make you stank, but that's milsim - the scent of sweat, blood, cigarettes, fear, and swamp ass. Ticks like under your neck, pits, butt cheek thigh area, and the backs of your knees, so try to check yourself whenever you get time.
    Am I the only one that read "incest prevention"?
    The biggest threat the local fauna pose is from Sasquatch. But that is another thread entirely.
    Godspeed, bro.

    "Only logical thing to do"? Really?! LOGICALLY, there was an open window right next to the window you shattered.
     
    But I guess some people's "logic" doesn't include taking care of something that isn't theirs...but I guess when someone else has to pay for it, it doesnt matter.

    We need more attitudes like this. I'm with you man, when I was at Broken Home last year, I was completely stress free, and distracted from real world problems. These ops aren't just a game to me, but an experience. A chance to be outdoors, camping with friends, and shooting people. The relationships that are created at these events are astonishing. Two of my best and closest friends I met at Broken Home 3 and I hope to make more this year.

    Improvement is a result of learning from one's mistakes.  Identify what went wrong, find a solution so as to not make the same mistake again, and successfully implement and execute that solution.  To those bandwagon players who always want to be on the winning side, how do you ever improve yourself?  How do you become a better player?  How do you learn anything?  Maybe it's a non-issue.  Maybe they don't want to get better.  Maybe they just want to be a statistical win.  
     
    That's all it boils down to.  A win or a loss is just a statistic.  The real victories and losses are the personal ones.  Did all that PT before the event pay off?  Were you able to climb that hill and assault that position without having a heart attack?  That's more of a win than your entire team having more imaginary points than the other team.  Did your squad have a complete breakdown in communication?  Did nobody know what was going on?  Did you get wiped out/fail your mission/let down your team mates as a result?  Again, that's more of a loss than having less points at the end of the event.

    Yep, I'm a CoST soldier for life. Doesn't matter the odds. Never quite understood the bandwagon deal. Sure, the UFS have been winning the past few, but who's to say that doesn't change during the next couple ops? It's happened before and there was a point where everyone wanted to play CoST and UFS wasn't the first choice. Choose a faction and stick with it. You're not always guaranteed to win but that's part of the fun and the experience. Teaches you lessons, you learn and adapt. It wouldn't be fun if you were always winning (nor would it be very realistic either). And whether my side wins or loses, I'm all about just having fun for a couple days slinging BBs while I'm distracted from the real world.
