My Dream MilSim Loadout

Since beginning working in the airsoft industry in July earlier this year, I’ve learned a lot about the industry, airsoft guns, some of their inner workings, and the gear that goes along with it. I’m not saying that my following list is the pinnacle of all loadouts, but it’s one that I certain I would enjoy. I was very pleased with my beginner’s loadout, but there are some things that I learned, and some things that I really just want more than my original gear. KWA CQB M4 On myRead More
If you have been reading my ongoing series article about my first airsoft event, you’ll learn that I had to get a loadout together very quickly and within a budget. I had to do a lot of asking throughout the office, because I looked online, and couldn’t find a loadout for beginners, or a comprehensive loadout of any kind. Most of the recommended loadouts I found were high-dollar items. When you have two weeks, and have to save as much as possible, going after the high-end stuff isn’t really anRead More
We have all been there, that is unless you bought a sling from the get-go, it’s been a long open event or MilSim and carrying the gun in hand just isn’t going to work anymore.

Airsoft Patches

Morale patches often consist of cool designs and catchy phrases. However, they don’t provide much more beyond the looks. Identification patches have a far more vital role in all airsoft operations. Knowing who is who and what their job is proves to be essential for being an effective team member. These patches include medical, flag, and other ID patches. In most military simulations, medic patches are required for each squad to easily identify who their medic is. The faster a medic can get to the scene where the player wasRead More
In the sport of airsoft, tactical gear plays a major role in combat effectiveness on the field. However, it is also vital to ensure that your tactical gear provides the needed protection instead of just carrying what you need. Goggles and facemasks are definitely a no-brainer, but gear like ball caps, shemaghs and lower face masks, and gloves can be easily overlooked if not taken into account. 1 Light Headwear Ball caps (its tactical counterpart is known as an “Operator Cap”) are a great, lightweight way to protect the upperRead More

A Tactical Gear Guide for Beginners

Tactical gear is an essential part to your effectiveness in the airsoft world. It provides an easy way to transport magazines, BBs, radios, and any other essential equipment on the field. Tactical gear comes in many different types, models, designs, and colors, but there are three main categories that provide the most out of load bearing and protection: vests, belts, and helmets.

What You Need to Know about Chest Rigs

Chest rigs are used for a wide range of purposes. Instead of being restricted to a large, bulky, and constraining plate carrier or vest, users often prefer to opt for a minimalist chest rig for missions that require unrestricted maneuverability. The pros of using a chest rig over plate carriers or tactical vests include maintaining a lower profile, having to bear a lighter load, and the ability to efficiently conceal your tactical gear. Having a low profile is often overlooked by many airsofters. Many players will utilize a loadout thatRead More
