  2. I use my Zensah Neck gaitor, but any kind of moist wrap is better than nothing at all. People may not realize that using a wrap around your head is cooler than wearing nothing at all.
  3. La Vernia airsoft is another place to skirmish. If you are willing to travel a little, Austin has skirmishes at Texas Paintball that has more of a hill country type of environment. La Vernia airsoft = Desert type, with mesquite, cactus small town and small airfield structures. Chernobyl airsoft = More of a speedball type field with scattered vehicles as bunkers and one house structure. Texas Paintball= different field types, pines, rocks with a few new structures and a neat Old Mill site.
  4. Yea I remember seeing all of 3 UFS "defending" our CoC. Good job on taking it. lol We were commanded to try taking then holding CoST CoC for 10 minutes because all our other tasks were completed as far as we know. But back on topic, this was one of the most fun events I have been to. Thank you AMS staff, but most of all thanks to all the BH2 participants that made the trip out there. I would love to revisit this AO.
  5. I had a great time and I really didn't see any D-bag moves until the second day when a player sat in a nest full of dead tangos and was firing on our forces. Yea I was pissed and I let him know it after I figured out what he was doing. The whole group walked off after that, I hope he realized his fault even if late and called himself out.
  6. You need a female as Time Management Coordinator. From my expereince, they don't really give a crap for 'airsoft time'.
  7. I recently bought a stock, barely used TM standard length M14 and wondered where has it been all my life. I liked the sexy, 'lean and mean' look of the long front stock along with the long barrel. It's length almost seems to help pierce through heavy brush around me as I take aim. I fielded it for the first time this weekend, and it takes some getting used to in contrast from my normal 'HighSpeed' AR/loadout I normally sport. Magazines and reloading were definitely a chore to get used to. Weesatch can carry the mags, but only 4 internally advertised yet I struggled with getting a 5th to fit in there and that is not recommendable for myself now. I don't know if you had an issue adjusting to such a wide mag, but I did whenever I tried extracting a mag from the 'Satch. I will have to adjust my loadouts for sure either by changing to a rig with external pouches or getting used to carrying only 4 M14 mags (adding external pouches to a weesatch is odd to me). However when compared to my SPR I found it easier to blend into cover because of the overall difference in profile height. I really LOVE that front sight on the M14 as well. Even through its new struggles, I really like M14 platform and hope to get used to fielding it more often. Now going back to topic, I've always heard from M14 owners I trust that it has great range, that may be so, but this TM out of Japan was shooting mid 280's with .25's and in the brush I was in, the range was greatly hampered and the newer players didn't seem to feel/hear the hits. You mentioned your make M14's velocity so I think you have good advantage over my brand. The only unknown factor I can come up with is a difference in hop up design. Either way, I will plan on slipping in an M120 spring in the future and see how much better my range has become.
  8. With a limit of 4 Hicaps, it shouldn't be a problem.
  9. Done. Finally a Chance to check out an AMS event.
  10. Looking at the Google map, there are open fields on the east and what looks to be several different civilian homesteads in the area with varying amounts of debris on the property. I'm not sure if this is the correct area or if RGXI turned into something else from its traditional woodland (Brush country) setting. Can you fill us in on what type of setting this is actually going to be? I know RGX was at Ft. Hood, you don't need to remind me Edit: My buddies over at Houston airsoft enlightened me with a video from another event held at Red oak that helped me with my question.
  11. It is up to the event organizer, or in a skirmish, up to the players.
  12. After going through two TSA inspections, I'm glad to say I had no issues. I ended using special TSA locks and adhering to the TSA regulations for transporting firearms and never had an issue. By the time I had gone through TSA security check, my case and trunk were already checked in cleared by TSA luggage inspectors. I updated my first post.
  13. Thanks for the offer RanDMZ. I'm waiting till after OpIrene and decide whether I'm changing helmet styles or keeping these A Alphas.
  14. Ditto Dirtpro. Assuming you want to change lengths quickly and even if you do change uppers, you won't get any faster velocity obviously or notably longer range than you expect if you want to turn the AEG into a sniping platform. The most notable change would be better accuracy/grouping as a result of longer barrel depending on variables with a slight increase in range .
  15. I remember watching a documentary about how an airplane accident was caused by a battery causing a spark igniting some gas. I might be wrong, but I'm planning on taping up the terminals just in case.
  16. I'm planning on traveling with some AEG's and have never flown with them so I have been calling TSA and the airline regarding policy for "BB Guns" and "replica firearms". Talking with reps, neither require orange tipped flash hiders, but should be treated and transported with the same precautions as real firearms, obviously. I was suggested to use orange flash hiders by a buddy, but flying and shipping AEGS's have different laws altogether. Has anyone flown their AEG's before and have you run into problems with inspections if you hadn't used orange flash hiders? http://www.tsa.gov/t...orial_1666.shtm **Edit. After going through two airport inspections, here is my advice, along with what others have confirmed: Follow TSA regulations as linked above, and use TSA locks found at Walmart or at stores inside the airport. Tape up all battery connections, and avoid taking gas bottles and take as little liquid silicone as possible, under 3oz. http://www.sportube....s/TSA_lock2.jpg http://www.tampersea...earchalert4.jpg http://photos.amazingsocks.com/500/tsa%20mini%20key%20lock.jpg
  17. Just5cents, you could always swap out the front sight for a low profile gas block replica unless you are dead set on the cut off front sight. For example: http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_info.php?products_id=6674
  18. Sheepdog, for a faster trigger response, you need a more powerful power source, higher torque gears, and if you really want to tune it up you go with higher performance wiring and connectors. High speed gears are for faster rate of fire on lesser strength springs. I Honestly have never heard of high speed gears on a DMR setup. Those high torque gears are beefier to endure the stress of higher springs, while high speed gears are not. Then again, since the clones have arrived everything that has been tried and proven has gone out the window. lol.
  19. There is plenty on the internets about this subject. What spring rating and velocity are you looking for? On the high end, Prometheus tightbore and Prometheus Triple torque gears, Hard/poly piston (with half tooth), Systema A to Z motor, 11.1V Lipo..... list goes on and on. R-hop setup may work and an STS V2 shock transfer system may keep that mechbox from cracking. Hard bucking will be more durable than a soft bucking in this application. Soooo much to list and suggest. This set is discontinued but Most or all of what is in here will definitely do the job. http://www.wgcshop.c...eus&catid=&cat=
  20. Love my Masada. Totally worth it, and if you are on the fence about buying one,jump at the chance...Whoa 97 bids on it? lol
  21. Several of us have the old Escort/Sun Project 'classics'. Talk about GBB! The drawback is the time and money involved in getting stuff fixed or machined. The old schoolers in our area swear by those classics, but they come at a price. The PolarStar system seems to be a good alternative, as well as the DaytonaGun kits and replicas available. I would use realcaps if players would call their hits.
  22. ThirdCoast Airsoft community has held 3 Zombie games in south Texas, Op Skurge 1 - 3. I have not attended one yet as it's not up my alley, but there are videos on youtube. Zmonster could probably elaborate much more than i can. It seems to have a decent following.
  23. This was my second rig circa~2007, but it was the CheaperThanDirt version. Only issue I had with it was that it wanted to come apart at the center. Interesting carabiner retention method. I've since changed rigs but never had problems with the rest of the design.
