Latest Highlander Product Review: Forces 2 Dome Tent

Click here to visit Highlander In July we started to upload reviews of wide range of kit which we thought would be of interest to the airsoft community. The first two were of footwear…

And now, in the words of John Cleese, for something completely different.

Today I’m pleased to announce that the third highlander product kindly offered by review from Gordon of Highlander: the Forces 2 Geo-Dome Tent. As anyone who attended Arniegeddon ‘06 can attest, this is quite a novel-looking tent.

‘Who’s Highlander?’ you may ask. Well, the chances are that if you’ve been to your local camping store, you may have seen quite a lot of their kit without realising it.

Highlander are a manufacturer / wholesaler who supply a considerable number of the UK’s camping and hiking stores, and who are now keen to support the airsofting community as well – something I’m sure every airsofter will more than welcome.

This is the first of several reviews you can expect to see coming of Highlander camping, skirmishing and hiking equipment over the next month or so, so remember to keep tuned.

The review of the tent can be found here. smile

Airsoft Military Simuations: Operation Hunter’s Moon

Paul of Airsoft Military Simulations) has been in touch to let us know of the latest event to be run by their promising new Mil-Sim company at Bramley Army Training Estate:

Operation Hunters Moon

28/29th October 2006.

Location: Bramley Army Training Estate.

Duration: 24 hours of Milsim.

MI5 have been trailing several suspects thought to be involved in international terrorism over the last few months. Their investigations have led them to a remote disused military base. Here they have found a terrorist organisation that is training new recruits in the art of guerrilla warfare and improvised explosives. MI5 are certain that this group is training these men and women for a terror campaign here in the UK.

Your unit of highly trained soldiers have been selected to move in and eliminate the threat to our national security.

The area for our exclusive use is roughly 170 acres of land, consisting of dense woodland, marshes, rivers, open flats, buildings, aircraft hangers, inclusive of underground bunkers! All you could ever want in one area, I think youll agree.

Throughout the day, youll be undertaking interlocking missions that encourages all forms of game play and problem solving involving intel sourcing missions with agents .

We will also employ the use of three tactical vehicles (one 4×4 flat bed technical with gun emplacement on the rear and two genuine British Army Landrovers).

During the game well be using many different varieties of pyrotechnics and other props to make your day enjoyable (we obviously arent going to give the game away with too much intel, do you expect a full briefing before going to war??).

This event is booking only and is 50 per person for the full 24 hours.

Individuals and teams are welcome.

You will be operating in small units for the duration. Ammo limits apply as follows, Rifleman = 1 bag ammo (4000 rds), Support gunner = 2 bags ammo (8000 rds) and snipers are unlimited. Pistols, moss carts and grenades are unlimited as long as they are pre loaded. (Support weapons are just that, proper support weapons like M249 Minimis or M60s. Also sniper rifles are not AEGs with a scope fitted (Except PSG1 rifles)).

350 FPS MAXIMUM for all weapons. NO exceptions.

Over 18s only unfortunately. Helmets are required at Bramley.

Thanks, Paul (Site Operator, Airsoft Military Simulations)

Sounds really promising so don’t hesitate to support this new event by booking now! Expect to see a sub-forum on Arnies where you can contact the Airsoft Mil Sim crew in the near future!

The loadouts have been revised and some increased with the pouches included to offer the best value to airsofters.

ATF Sigma Boot Review now up

The next few months on Arnies sees a series of reviews by the Arnies Staff of new products that may be of interest to the airsofting community.

Reflecting this interest, Gordon has kindly offered up a wide variety of samples that reflects the huge range of goods they supply, ranging from boots through to tents, bivvy bags and even gas stoves, so I’m fairly sure that there should be something amongst the range of materials which you’ll all find interesting to read up on.

This is the second set of boots sent to us by Gordon, the budget ATF Sigma Boots.

Click here to visit Highlander ‘Who’s Highlander?’ you may ask. Well, the chances are that if you’ve been to your local camping store, you may have seen quite a lot of their kit without realising it.

Highlander are a manufacturer / wholesaler who supply a considerable number of the UK’s camping and hiking stores, and who are now keen to support the airsofting community as well – something I’m sure every airsofter will more than welcome.

This is the second of several reviews you can expect to see coming of Highlander camping, skirmishing and hiking equipment over the next month or so, so remember to keep tuned.

Once again for those who missed it, both reviews can be found in the review database

Police raid major Airsoft businesses in Japan

Paul from ClassicAirsoftGuns has mailed in some news from Japan, which relates to recent Police action in Japan in relation to Airsoft. Whilst there’s nothing official posted anywhere as the information was confirmed by a second source you can pretty much take his word for it being true:

Friday August 4th the Manager and staff of First Factory/Laylax were arrested during the night for selling high power airsoft guns after the .98j joule law went into effect August 1st. They face several months in jail and fines of 1 million yen per infraction. The president was unavailable for interview, but it is assumed he will take responsiblility for the acts by paying the fines and supporting his staff. It is also very probable he will be taken to jail as a result of his knowledge and lack of action. The raid went further as to contact sales recipients of highpowered guns as of August 1st. 9 people were contacted, cited, fined, and given criminal records. One such person was a government official who will now be asked to resign his position after reiceiving his criminal record. The manager was shown being taken to prison while being contrasted by his negative views of highpowered guns, not 9 months before.

This new law affects everyone from part makers to gun manufacturers, all makers including WA and TM. The standardized testing the government is using is .98j with .2g BBs at a temperature of 35deg C. The previous industry standard test was at 20c. This has all conventional gas makers concerned as their guns cannot pass at 35deg C. This will affect the market and industry dramatically and possibly give HK the toe hold it needs to truly dominate the market.

This operation was concocted in an attempt to catch Digicon, the makers of airguns used in 98% of the crimes commited in Japan. However, the operation has now extended to less serious infractions in an attempt to make an example to smaller custom shops working under the radar. Other establishments, rumored by law enforcement and industry officials, to fall in the industry are the upper echelon of ASGK, Echiogoya, Digicon, and some smaller custom shops.

Airsoft Supplier UK update

The guys from ASUK also dropped this into my mailbox a few days ago. Check out the site at http://www.airsoftsupplier.co.uk/

Hi,

Welcome to the latest Airsoft Supplier UK update. Weve been keeping quiet planning new lines and trying to establish new suppliers so we can bring the UK market the best in new and high quality gear.

Many of you may be aware we now have the excellent G&P Tracer Magazines in stock. They have proved very popular, and understandably so considering the cost and hassle of a tracer unit compared to the ease of carrying an extra magazine. Available at just 21 for a magazine while initial stocks last!

We have also introduced a range of tracer BBs to cater for the special consumables needed when using the newly acquired Tracer magazines. SIIS are the main brand weve chosen and they provide great value including 1000 rounds a pack in both 0.2g and 0.25g weights, and a green glow.

Proud have been producing a whole set of new lines, which were announced on various news websites a couple of weeks back. These include the new CASV Rail hand-guard range, which we have available now via the website, plus various flashiders, which will be put on the site very shortly. They have also released new black tactical gear such as the CIRAS packages, so let us know if youre after one. Additional new products we will have available soon are drop leg panels and frag grenade pouches. This means the Package section will be revamped soon. We have the common favourite LPC back in stock in OD and the very similar convertible plate carrier in CB at the moment.

Speedloader, lightstick and the excellent value G&P magazine special offers are still running as ever, encouraging more people to convert to midcaps. All the more reason to stick with Proud gear and G&P magazines!

New magazines in include:
STAR MP7 locaps (8 x 20 round set)
MAG HK style (L85) midcap sets (which are possibly the smartest magazine weve seen yet)
TM MP7 190 round hicaps

Thanks for reading, and remember to check the website out.

Regards,
Luke and Ben
