    Belt Question

    I also run a USGG infidel belt, but I also wear suspenders to bear the weight of an integrated chest panel and hydro pack. The infidel is rock solid and doesn't move, since it attaches to a Velcro inner belt. The padding is perfect and it never feels off balance. Even when I am running, kneeling and going prone, there is 0 belt movement; which makes it faster to index mags and use a dump pouch as second nature.
  2. AMS, can you weigh in on this real quick please? Pea grenades are expensive, but I hesitate to order because your rule set states that it must expel bb's and be a recognized airsoft grenade form factor. Thanks!
  3. Will helo runs be subject to single fire rules? That would kind of suck.
  4. I called Oakley, they told me that all if their lenses surpass the ANSI rating. However, they do not stamp all the lenses they make with the z87 rating. The fit into the frame which also has to be certified and stamped, also plays as a factor. This was a couple years ago when I was considering the brand. I'd feel safe wearing the lenses as long as I got them from Oakley directly or an authorized reseller. I used to be a competitive shooter and have seen many people wear Oakley lenses. For reassurance, don't take anyone's word on the lenses, call Oakley. They are very helpful and a educated consumer is a smart consumer. Your eye sight is too valuable not take the extra 15 minutes to place a call to California (Oakley). Great choice, I wish their frames fit my face right. I ended up buy Rudy Project Guardyans.
  5. I run a war belt as my primary load carrier. I like the hsgi belt, but I went with u.s. grunt gear's infidel war belt. I liked that I didn't have to add weight by adding another belt over my trouser belt. The inner Velcro holds the belt super stable. The suspenders I have let me easily bear the weight. I had USGG build me a war belt that I could integrate a chest panel if I needed to carry more. Mostly, I just use my belt set up. My USGG was crazy $, because I wanted a custom build in ranger green that I could use in pistol classes as well as airsoft. You can see my belt over in the first line discussion in the thread "just a belt." The only changes I've made is replacing all my pouches with tacos and holster to a RTI safariland. The condor will not bear the weight over time. The frame sheet is nonexistent and the belt will lose the rigidity you need to keep all your stuff where you need it. I have a tactical tailor belt that is floppy and it buckles under of the weight of mags, dump, and pistol. The hsgi belt has a hdpe (kydex) frame stiffener that's is light, pliable and nearly perfect. Save your money and buy the hsgi belt, IMO. The adage of buy once, cry once is 100% applicable to your being to enjoy the hobby without being constantly annoyed and reminded that you should have held out and bought one of the very best pieces out there.
  6. I'd tell you the story, but unfortunately I am dead. I was killed (knifed) by the murderous CDF, while peacefully gathered at their check point. UFS
  7. You can also look around your area for someone to press a custom kydex holster, because of that handle. That still would be a 100% better then the fabric holsters that condor offers and you wouldn't have to worry about losing a mag. I would have the holster maker have it mount to the RTI wheel stud plate as mentioned above. I have my safarilands and serpa (yuk) mounted on a RTI wheel to my first line. I don't use my serpa any more. I've actually had very fine dust accumulate in the release button and I had to take a screwdriver handle to push it down. Also, it's unsafe for me due to the trigger finger placement upon draw. IMO your ultimate option would be to have g-code press out a custom lower section (cowling) of the modular SOC holster. That way, if you want to use a regular 92/96 (or real steel) you would just have to change the cowling out to match. Your barrel may stick out of the bottom of the holster, but at least you have a little more usability beyond the Raffica. G-code has excellent customer service and the guys there won't lol@you for playing airsoft. http://www.tacticalholsters.com/category/SOC.html
  8. If anyone found any vortex nerf rockets that were labeled "Reckoning", "CR", or "Wraven", I'd be happy to pay for shipping back to us. We generally shot rockets that were black and white. Thanks!
  9. Wow, I just noticed that Vertx was added as an AMS sponsor! They are fantastic company that offer a great line of clothing. I have 5 pairs of their pants and the comfort reminds me of a karate gi pant. IMO they run a tad small after washing, I normally wear a 34 jean, and the 34 regular vertx are a little tighter. The phantom LTs are a fantastic pant, with the gusseted on crotch, no more blow outs; and the phantom material wicks and doesn't absorb a lot of moisture. Nice play AMS!
  10. Roger that........improvise, adapt, overcome. Hell, the way Top yells, none of us will need radios.
  11. Another question for you.... the Platoon Leader for 4PL is going to have monitor channels 2, 10 and 11? Normally, our SL has to carry 2 Icoms, ones for squad net, the other for platoon net. In this case, there is no designated platoon frequency?
  12. Toboggan in clothing? Am I missing something? Is that a brand name like "taco"? Or are they prepping for the Colorado op?
  13. I am a little confused on this, according to http://wiki.radioreference.com/index.php/FRS/GMRS_combined_channel_chart, Channel 10 Privacy 3, should be 467.6125?

    AO Map?

    Any idea when a AO map will be available? I know one is provided at registration, but we normally like to make sure we size them up/down to fit into commander panels.
  15. We are coming from Austin/San Antonio/Fort Hood area.
  16. Perfect, thanks JP... that makes it easier to plan the long drive home to central Texas.
  17. Hello, We are trying to nail down vacation requests, travel time and lodging. Do you know if Sunday, March 3rd will be a full day of events? Will there be chrono/check in on Friday, March 1st? Thanks!
  18. Great questions! Everyone has an opinion, so keep that in mind. There are many others on here with more experience, but I'll give you things to consider. "Buy once, cry once" VFC, KWA, G&P and Elite Force are considered some of the best brands you can buy. Along with some of the TM guns, for standard AEG variants, these would be the brands that I'd stick with. Now, when you want to go more exotic, there are options like polarstar, etc. I don't know about VFC or EF, but the G&P seems easier to upgrade than KWA due to proprietary parts. I just bought KWA's because I don't have the time to tinker and replace. I just wanted something that I could stick a battery in and it would go. So far, my KWA's have more that 20K rounds, without a hiccup, but I clean the barrels and replace the hop up buckings. I've told all my friends to get these brands first, in a standard M4/M16 form factor and then see what they like and don't like. If you really want to know more about the technical piece, go to airsoftmechanics.com and start reading. Writers like Extrodinaire and Hunterseeker5, really know their stuff. Good luck!
  19. I can program the f4gs-2 definitely. I haven't tried the f4 programming software though. I can't make the RDG date,so I won't be there.
  20. Which Icom variant? F4? F21? There are a few people in Austin that can do that for you. If it's a F4, I may be able to do it depending on if it's a regular F4, or F4GS. If not, Shakman has all the software for any model. You can reach him on lonestar airsoft forums.
  21. I just backed it off until I got rid of the whine like you did. It still doesn't sound as clean as when it was new, but my friends say it sounds fine. Hope this help, Joe
  22. Yep, but this one is metal. And look at your plastic one where the the plastic meets the motor, the plastic one is different.
  23. You have to replace or mod the plastic end piece to fit over the motor correctly. The MOE has the plastic end cap and if you look at it, it doesn't work well with the motor and it pushes it too far forward, binding the pinion gear. I've switched all my MOE end pieces to metal and they work great also serving as a better heat sync. You can get them on ebay. You can also go to KWA's website forum and watch a video on how to mod the plastic end cap to work with motors. That also works, I've done that twice, before making the change over to a metal cap. As far as the grip, I had to mod 3 out of 3 to fit the lower. One of the grips didn't seat all the way to the bottom of the gearbox. On all 3, I had to trim off the end of the MOE grip to fit with the sling plates. Nice grips, but they are a pain in the ass! I've always wondered why this airsoft stuff is way more complicated then a real m4 weapon system. In fact, I dread taking apart my airsoft toys versus a simple take down of a real platform. I think John Browning would have had a heart attack if you had to have a paper clip to take down a hi-power like you do the KWA Mark 4!

    I agree with JP, the Lowas are top notch. I own Danners and Merrells...this is my second set of Lowa's and I think that brand is great.
