    what mounts have you got for the earmor's there? and was there much work in getting it to fit? Read around it a bit but have so far failed to get a consistent answer as to what's required. The Unity tactical Mark specifically mentions the earmor yet seems people still have issues. thanks

    Question regarding a correct camoflauge.

    It all looks good. Obviously its fun to think about - but you don't need to overthink it either. That camo looks fine for year round maybe you could consider some darker trouser for the autumn and winter, but its not the biggest deal in the world. I have various camo but tbh I go more on weather then season, if that makes sense. As for olive drab vs coyote brown - whatever you think looks cool, its no biggie really. Camouflage and concealment are two sides of the same coin - camo is something you wear, concealment something you do. enjoy!

    A bodged vfg was used by one of the chaps who posed with thatcher. Looks like an ar15 or ar18 grip with bit of cable tie action too.

    PEQ or DBAL?

    I have two EX 276's which is the red dot version. I'm very happy with the output of the laser, you don't want it too strong anyway but at night time it exceeds my effective range, and its visible in doors in the day time. I've not used it outside in a skirmish. The build quality is good generally speaking - the body feels pretty solid and as far as it goes, hefty. however the covers for the torch and lasers fell off one unit within a few skirmishes (not ideal but not a disaster) and the other has broken the laser zero adjustment on it's first skirmish (or during transit perhaps). So taping up the more vulnerable bits is probably a good idea. The peq is really a laser first and a torch second i suppose. The torch isn't that powerful and has a fair splash, maybe useful in some situations but i rarely use it. You only have the one button, and you can select between viz laser, ir laser, torch, viz laser + torch. the latter option isn't very useful imo. So if you want to toggle between laser and torch it's best to have a torch as a torch and the peq for the laser, dual switches are useful for this but not necessarily essential

    Anyone still around from the old days?

    Playing in woodland at night is very challenging (espicially without NODs!) but thats part of the fun shurely!? Insurance playing a role is plausible but im sorry to say that a fair amount of sites will do the bare minimum to keep the same locals turning up 2 sundays a month and that extends to night games. Fortunately a few places are starting to pick up on the demand for them - though this seems to be in the summer, its almost like darkness is seen as a bug not a feature. Case in point: site near me started doing saturday night games... they stopped early december... literally the only reason id go there is cause its a skirmish on a saturday night, its otherwise completely unremarkable. South coast cqb (cracking site) only does evening games on a thursday march-august too. Night games also present challenges when it comes to marshalling. A bunch of us recently went to a semi-private night game with mandatory tracers and it was great. Suffice to say some NODs are on the shopping list! If south coast cqb / the gaol did saturday evening games - even in the winter(!!!) Id be there on a monthly basis, even with at least 5 total hours of driving. One can dream! My final moan is: sites that only do sundays.. why!?!?! Going skirmishing on a saturday then for pints after with nothing to do the next day but sleep is probably my ideal weekend.
  9. There's not much in the way of shops with showrooms in the Gloucestershire area - there was Swindon Airsoft (now Strikeforce I think) but I don't think they have a shop with showroom anymore. If you are based in Gloucestershire there is the aforementioned Strikeforce which is an "american style" plywood killhouse. There is also UCAP Vendetta at the former HMP Gloucester. Further afield you have Spartan CQB (former 6th Form College) and F&O's The Base CQC which is a cool back-to-nature former RAF base. I can't help with appraisals but you can post in the classifieds without needing 100 posts now.

    AK sight mounting.

    Generally its easier to pick up the dot when its further back, but the unit itself will take up more space in your vision as RC said. I dont really think theres much in it as theres personal preference and depending on platform only so many places to mount. You could also try one of those mounts that replace the rear sight - that will raise it a bit too. As for neck pain - its an interesting one but i wouldnt say shouldering a rifle is an odd posture and if you find that its inducing neck pain / migraine i think that is a symptom not a cause. Certainly doesn't sound fun! Cheers

    CQB/Urban/FIBUA in the south

    They put on a good day - some questionable choices as to where to put spawn points but i've not had a bad day yet. I also need to check out sentinal's The Outpost - formely x-site. I thought it closed and forgot about it!
