Last week, the fine gentlemen of GI’s Texas location decided that an in depth dive into the Classic Army Micro gun was necessary. The best way to find out how something works is to try and take it apart and put it together. Since the Classic Army Micro Gun already arrives disassembled they decided to put it together on camera for you (with a little help from everyone’s favorite TV personality-on-a-t-shirt Bob Ross).

For a good majority of the airsoft collective, MILSIM (short for Military Simulation) is the holy grail of airsoft experience.

This list isn’t all inclusive, but click the “read more” link, to see what we think are MILSIM essentials:
The Crossdraw vest is not an end-all, be-all platform, but it will accomplish everything you need and more for the player that is looking to get started with something inexpensive and versatile!
Many new players often ask us about the importance of load bearing gear, and a fantastic option when you’re just getting into the game is the Crossdraw Vest. Though it might not carry everything you might eventually need, the basic Crossdraw generally has pouch real estate for most items you’ll need as a beginner.
Everyone’s preferences vary quite a bit, but as a general rule of thumb, you’ll want to carry enough magazines to get you through a game and back to the staging area, a sidearm in the event your gun goes down or for clearing tighter spaces, and enough magazines to keep said sidearm running. Most folks will also attach some kind of dump pouch to their vest, plate carrier or belt kit, allowing them to quickly and easily store expended magazines rather than fiddling with getting them back into the pouch when you need to get your gun up fast. It’s always advisable to have a spare space for other miscellaneous items you might want to bring with you too – pens, a notepad, a small first aid kit, etc.
If you couldn’t tell where this was going by now – a Crossdraw Vest handles all of these duties with ease!
While not as modular as a pure MOLLE platform, these vests are a great way to get out and play with minimal both minimal thought given to setup, and a minimal hit on your wallet!

The ARP-9 by G&G Armament occupies an interesting space in the airsoft market. It is designed to offer close quarters battle options to players who want the ergonomics of an AR-15 but don’t want to own “just another M4” while simultaneously trying to combat the more expensive offerings from competing brands. This gun was one of the stand-out new showings from G&G at SHOTshow 2017 as well, garnering a ton of hype and curiosity, but just how good is it? How does it compare to some of its direct competition? We had to know, and we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
