iRonin reacted to RipCord in ROOKIE PROBS
As Blackbird said: "Know that D-day is going to kick your butt your first time."
It will. But that's ok. This will be my 2nd year, and as prepared as I thought I was last year.. I wasn't. This AO is a BEAST. Have as much water as you can carry. Dress smart. I HIGHLY recommend compression shorts/undershirt. You will need WAY less gear than you'll bring and ounces = lbs. Definitely cut anything you don't REALLY need. And again, as others have said, take your time. The squad's pace, should be that of the slowest man (not the other way around).
iRonin got a reaction from Dave in Deployment Gear
Deployment =/= loadout, my bad.
I am trying to find something functional, cheap, and comfortable. When I was still active duty, we had these god forsaken PC which also held our magazine and radio pouches and I hated them. The Vietnam era crossdraw harnesses were my personal favorite and I'm attempting to build something similar for my loadout during games.
**I apologize for the format, mobile phone is being childish.

I think that if you want a good bolt-gun that can do what sniper rifles are supposed to do, then buy whatever base you want, then drop $200+ on a new cylinder set, new sears, new barrel, bucking, and maybe even a upgraded hop unit.
Most people don't have the skill or the patience to use a bolt gun effectively at events like these. I would highly recommend a decent AEG as a first rifle. Echo1, G&G, and JG AR-pattern rifles all have decent performance out of the box and are budget friendly.if you like AKs, hands down the Cyma series of AKs are the best bang for your buck.

I agree with Wrench you definitely need better guns. That rifle only shoots 320fps with .20s, that's ok for a CQB gun but won't cut it outdoors and no way as a sniper rifle. The pistol isn't any better, 150fps with .12s. Not saying you can't play with those guns but your bringing a knife to a gunfight
iRonin reacted to Sierra One-Four in Post Your Belt Kit Thread!
My belt rig is pretty simple. I have the Eagle personal retention lanyard, Gerber Multitool, Eagle SFLCS IFAK (being replaced with SOtech one as we speak), a small medical kit (I am diabetic-it holds my insulin), I would also almost always have my SERPA hip holster or safariland 6004 leg holster on along with my KWA Glock 17 and BDS tactical pistol retention lanyard. The belt itself is a Spec-Ops Riggers belt that I cut down a little bit to fit me better when wearing a hip holster. The gloves are the best gloves I have ever touched (I have touched a lot of them ). They are Outdoor Research Overlord Shorts. HIGHLY recommended.
