As I stated earlier this month, keeping mentally healthy is vital during this lockdown period; aka 'Operation Hammerdown'. Thus, I shot a few pictures of my Tokyo Marui RiFs whilst the sun was out, the kids were being entertained by Disney+ and my wife was toiling away at her hospital. Just getting hands-on and escaping … Continue reading Chapter 73. Tokyo Marui Airsoft: Lockdown Series Pictures.
Over the course of the last couple of years, whenever I have seen reasonably priced items from the Crye Precision SPS range, I have grabbed them; not only for my own usage, but also because they massively hold their value. This chapter is not a technical run down of what the pouches are made from, … Continue reading Chapter 72. Using The Crye Precision Smart Pouch Suite (SPS).
When surreal is the new normal, finding ways to stay healthy is paramount. Now, I am not exactly in peak physical fitness, but I'm still able to wear the same trousers and jumpers I bought a decade ago, so I'm at least - hopefully - on a plateau! I know first hand how vital it … Continue reading Chapter 71. Airsoft Health benefits.
First impressions of Tokyo Marui's PSG-1 AEG. I wanted a decent subject for my 70th TGC chapter. Fortunately one happened to come up so I hope that this doesn't disappoint: das Präzisionsscharfschützengewehr 1. I will stick to using 'PSG-1' from here on in though, if you'll excuse me... The story behind H&K's PSG-1 is not … Continue reading Chapter 70. Tokyo Marui H&K PSG-1.
So, apparently (and keep this on the down-low), there is a virus on the block causing some serious shenanigans...you may want a bit of reading material to occupy the mind right about now. I could write a whole chapter on how we get the Government we deserve, how Boris Johnson's and Donald Trump's glaringly obvious … Continue reading Chapter 69. WTF is going on in the world? Better rank my Blasters, fast…
I'm. Chuffed. With. This. After I unexpectedly sold my now surplus-to-my-needs LBT 1794 Mk.23 SOCOM holster (youngest younger brother had bought my TM Mk.23 SOCOM from me over Christmas to compliment his new Silverback SRS sniper's rifle) to an American buyer last week, my gear fund coffers were delightfully healthier than usual. This was timely; … Continue reading Chapter 68. Catching a Unicorn: Crye Precision Range Vest (MultiCam).
Airsofters plus social media = a good thing? A while ago, youngest younger brother shared a video with me, shot from the gun cam of a very well known social media airsoft sniper. In said video, a luckless airsofter playing at a site in deepest, darkest Kent, was being stalked by the aforementioned sniper. I … Continue reading Chapter 67. Do you really want to hurt me?
Sometimes you have to quickly sell items in this game in order to right a wrong. Last week was one such occasion. I have regretful thoughts when it comes to selling the Crye Precision Fieldshell 2.0 I had in my possession briefly in 2018. After a couple of months of not being used, I listed … Continue reading Chapter 66. Outer layer options: Crye Precision Fieldshell.
In addition to my financially concerning predilection for high-end Militaria, I also have a worryingly hard to resist Carhartt collecting habit... That famous swirling 'C' logo is like catnip to me! There is just something about it. It is a brand I don't think I have ever seen advertised on TV here in the UK … Continue reading Chapter 65. My Carhartt Addiction.
As a collector, I recognise that some items have to be sold off in order to fund the next addition. But how do you let go of something that you may never find again or afford again? Happy 2020 all! Seller's remorse has hit me several times in the last 24 months. I have (in … Continue reading Chapter 64. So, How Do You Know *When* To Sell That Bit Of Kit You Have Laying Around?
