#40402 FNG from AZ

Posted by TheJP on 16 June 2018 - 05:32 PM

Hello all, Brand new to American Milsim Copperhead 4 will be my first event signed on as a rifleman for PSA. I'm can't wait to make the drive out to playas and get a chance to break in some fresh kit! If anyone needs any 3D printed parts let me know, I am always looking to increase my pyro budget. 

 

Note: If anyone's fireteam is short a man I would be happy to fill in I've got no battle buddies as it sits right now. Currently rocking an APEX R5 M4 Type Rifle which is all tuned up as well as an FNX45 sidearm. All Ranger Green/OD Gear if that makes any difference.

 

Welcome to the AMS Coumminty! Look forward to seeing you at CH this year!

#40298 Is this considered a Sniper or a LMG?

Posted by TheJP on 14 May 2018 - 10:03 PM

Would be considered a DMR, we (AMS) does not allow non-bolt Sniper rifles.




#40297 Skitch is back!

Posted by TheJP on 14 May 2018 - 08:49 PM

I've been out of the scene for a few years now, but am happy to say I'll be bringing my boys with me to BH7!  Hopefully they will fall in love with the sport, and I can continue the tradition for many years with them.

 

Post up your AFGAH RAP! 




#40261 BROKEN HOME VII EVENT SCHEDULE

Posted by TheJP on 04 May 2018 - 09:51 AM

No Saturday morning formation this year?

 

No, we while have Rally times for each CHALK to be deployed via "Air Drop". So when the CHALK schedule is posted those squads just need to be at the debarkation area at that time.

 

Instead of all of us rallying for morning brief and standing around in gear for an hour.

 

We will have morning brief Sunday.

 

Make sense?




#40242 Baofeng UV-5r problem

Posted by TheJP on 02 May 2018 - 09:37 PM

My Baofeng's had a weird problem for a few months now. The buttons on the side (ptt button, flashlight button, etc.) work fine, but none of the buttons on the front face of the radio seem to function as intended. I would just assume the buttons were broken or there was some sort of wiring error, but the funny thing is that I still get a beep anytime I press any of these buttons, IE it acknowledges the buttons were pressed, they just don't actually do anything. This, of course, is problematic seeing as I cannot change frequency or access the settings menu. Anyone able to help me out? Is there a fix? Or should I invest in a new Baofeng?

 

Did you lock the keypad by accident?

#40115 how to be a scout?

Posted by TheJP on 02 March 2018 - 10:59 PM

If you don't personally know one of them, they will not vet you -- sorry.

#40076 Hail and Well Met!

Posted by TheJP on 06 February 2018 - 11:48 PM

Hello!

 

I'll be honest here- I don't have a true nickname- Been called pencil or onion, but nothing has truly stuck. Ah well. 

 

 

Anyways- I hail from New Mexico, Starting up out here with a few buddies of mine. I am a larger player (needing to lose weight, so I figured, why not). Looking to start training my cardio system for the oncoming games...

Anyways, Current loadout is a A&K M249 Para, all stock (so far... going to be updating this) I also have a Element Sordin headset, BF F8 (not the HP) and some Thunder B's.

I don't have much in the ways of gear, but I'll slowly spend the next 400 or so on some gear. One of which will be a GBB pistol and a nice chest rig, looking at the Pantac RRV or Matrix RRV (ideas welcome- my waist is about 50", so let me know if there's some that fit that- and gun ideas work too). on this as well- ideas for dead lights/ flashlights? maybe something that looks like IFFs? also, Kinda leaning towards UFS for my preference :)

 

Looking to play at Playas this year, as work is not the best for long-travel. But out side of that, if you want to hang out, talk or have some gear that might help me/ work for me, don't be afraid to message me or let me know

 

PS brownie points if you know the game(s) my title comes from.
