Oh dear god, I'm not very good at keeping the blog up-to-date am I?
Let's bring everything back up to speed.
I sold my SOE Modular vest and it's pouches, and replaced that setup with a Tactical Tailor MAV. Unfortunately, I've found the MAV to be pretty uncomfortable and I am moving on to other options. As I don't really want to be bogged down with a full armour carrier such as a CIRAS, RMV, BALCS or IBA, I will be going down the route of a higher-end chestrig. I have opted for the Eagle
So I have a few new toys headed my way with the cordura and the releasable goodness of FUN!
Cough... Pilz-e moment over...
Anyway. I've got a few new things coming my way. To begin with, a pair of ESS ICE glasses. I have heard nothing but good things about these shooting specs. I'll do a short review on them when I recieve, which will be tonight when I'm back from work. They appear to come with a clear and tinted lense which is pretty good value for money.
Secondly... I've ordered
Over the past year or so I have dealt with several gear retailers. However it is "Triad Tactical" (Triad Tactical) whom I have gotten the best service from.
I sent him a couple emails his way but didn't get a response for a week or so, and then I decided to call him up on the number provided on the website.
I spoke with him for 30 minutes or so, and had a really friendly chat with him, where he said that his PC actually had a virus and he was just bringing it back and such.
AEGs and me just don't seem to mix.
My first AEG - a Tokyo Marui M733 carbine - fired off to the left.
Second AEG which a Classic Army M15a4 RIS, had a faulty oring on the piston, a shoddy motor and the RIS wobbled like jelly on a bouncy castle.
The current one? A rather lovely M4 RAS with an M203 launcher. Well, that's pretty much perfect all round. The externals are lovely, and the majority of the internals are fine, except for one minor detail. The tappet plate.
Oh my, tha
The majority of CCOs (Close Combat Optics) have been in the form of the red dot sight, such as the Aimpoint M2 and Trijicon ACOG Reflex sight. The Eotech series of sights, known as "holosights" are the next generation in CCOs.
I bourght my Eotech 552 HWS (Holographic Weapon Sight) simply because I just didn't like the tubular nature of the aimpoint. The Eotech carries the same holographic three dimensional properties as a modern fighter aircraft HUD (Head's Up Display) and thus does away wi
It's late - midnight, infact. I am trying to get to sleep, and what happens? My mother's mobile (cellphone to Americans) goes off!
First time it's like, "Why the heck did someone phone at this hour?"... the phone rung off the hook and then phoned again, and again... by the fourth time, I was pretty freaked out. I mean, it could be a family member or friend who's been hurt! So I raced upstairs and picked up the phone...
Missed call messages. Bloody Missed Frickin Call messages. Dated fr
I've been off for the past two days because of illness. My head feels like it's going to explode, my nose will not stop pouring both snot and blood out at a steady rate, and my stomach feels like it's going to explode in a similar, yet larger, manner to my head.
Luckily we're nowhere near shortstaffed at my work, so it's not a big issue for people to take sickies. So... here I am.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go find a box of paracetemol and down the lot...
My parents went on a nice two week holiday to Crete, and me being a lazy bugger, stayed home.
20 year old male + house - parents = fun!
Computer, xbox and minifridge all found new temporary homes in the livingroom upstairs, and the room itself got a huge makeover (by that, I mean move the sofa infront of the LCD TV...) For about a week, I survived on Rustlers microwavable food and the local chippy. Hardly health food, but what can I say... it was fun.
Then, I got myself a rather n
Well, here's my new blog... expect lots of geardo related things and my general rantage.
First on my list... a big thanks to arn. This should prove iiiinteesting.
Secondly, airsoft armoury kick *albatross*. I ordered a VP charger and a speedloader from them just over two weeks ago, and there was still no sign of it. I phoned them today, and they said they'd look into it and contact me as soon as possible. Within 20 minutes, they phoned back and said the order got misplaced, and he'd se
