Back in Black | ASGI Bill’s Rig

IMG_4171

Originally written by ASGI Bill

Recently I was in the market for a new plate carrier as my trusty Condor Quick Release Plate Carrier was slowly wearing out from 4 years of hard abuse. After talking to Bob about his setup (as well as trying on his plate carrier) I chose the Specter MPC plate carrier in black as I have always like black gear. I understand that is may not be as hip or cool as the newest camo (cough* multicam, cough*) or anything in tan, but I has always given me the PMC/Mercenary look I try to go for. Let me tell you, this plate carrier is well worth the price, and I plan to always buy American made plate carriers from now on, as it is built like a Mack truck and can take a beating.

If you have ever seen my loadout, I carry a lot of stuff, and I mean A LOT. On the front of my plate carrier I have 3 Tactical Tailor pouches, each holding two magazines a piece, and next to those, I have two High Speed Gear TACO pouches with pistol TACO’s attached. These are my “I need to reload 5 seconds ago” pouches. On my chest I have a Condor admin pouch where I proudly wear my Defenders of Liberty patch and Team Airsoft GI Patch. Besides patches, that is where I put my wallet, keys, and any random little items.

One Man with Six Guns?


After watching Boondock Saints, Bob has always wanted to build a six pistol loadout, and in this episode of Tactical Gear Heads, he finally did it. Bob builds a slightly modified set up of that in the movie and uses a variety of magazine and dump pouches to carry his gear. If you like what you see, be sure to check it out on our website!

TAG Banshee – Quality Meets Affordability

For those that are unfamiliar, Shellback Tactical’s latest and greatest plate carrier is the Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier. This low-profile plate carrier is constructed entirely in America, with quality design and construction that can easily make this plate carrier worth over $200.00. However, considering the plethora of features this plate carrier has to offer, it is astounding that this plate carrier is only priced at $160.00 USD.

Low Profile Design

This plate carrier is designed for actual police and military use, meaning that it has the capability of carrying real rifle plates and enduring the wear that such plates can cause. Additionally, the ruggedness of this carrier is paired with a low profile cut to produce a carrier that is both slim and durable.

For those who wish to minimize weight, the Banshee has the option of functioning with or without a cummerbund. Furthermore, the trim design of the Banshee does not sacrifice speed for comfort. As seen in the picture below, the Banshee features fairly wide and padded shoulder straps to maximize comfort. If that is not enough however, Shellback Tactical offers after-market shoulder pads that can be attached to the plate carrier for even more operator comfort.

All in all, the Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier offers plenty of bang for your buck. For only $159.99 USD, the Shellback Tactical Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier provides a comfortable, low-profile, and affordable mounting option for all your tactical accessories.

Because we got some new cool stuff in and we hadn’t played airsoft in a while, we here at AirsoftGI wanted to use some of the new tactical gear we got from Gryffon. With our Dragonspine Belt System and Golem Chest rig, even though it was pretty hot outside, we managed to stay cool because our rigs were light and breathable. Additionally, it gave us a chance to test out G&G’s new version 2 gbb m4. If you are interested in any of these cool products, be sure to check them out on our website!

Gryffon Dragon Spine Belt – For Both Shooters and Airsofters

After years of being around firearms, tactical gear, going out shooting, training, and practice, I found out that for some situations keeping it simple is actually better. When I first started playing airsoft back in 2005 I had a replica CIRAS plate carrier with an excessive amount of pouches on it. The plate carrier was extremely heavyI did not really need all the pouches I had. It was not until I got into firearms that I realized “less is more”. You could do more with less equipment because of the weight and simplicity factor.

If you have read my previous articles, you know that I run a Banshee Plate Carrier and Suregrip Battle Belt system for my primary loadout. The pouches on my plate carrier and battle belt are bare essentials. I not only save weight, but simplicity can make me more efficient on grabbing my equipment out of the pouches. That is the reason why I like Gryffon, the new gear company that just surfaced on the tactical gear market. One particular item caught my eye is the Universal Shooter Belt. I already have a lot of ways to utilize this belt system.
