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.
War combatants are required to carry a large number of items on their person; such as: ballistic plates, trauma kits, radio equipment, night vision, and other important tactical equipment. Airsoft doesn’t require these items in order to participate, and so airsoft kits are generally lighter. However, for many airsoft players and even firearm enthusiasts, there is a modern concept that implies, “less is more.” This means that if you trim out the fat of a particular kit, all you’ll have is a lean mean kit that is lightweight and simple to use and understand. Having a simple lightweight kit is beneficial to the user because it simplifies training as well as giving added mobility for fast maneuvers on the airsoft field.
We have been getting a lot of requests asking about which guns might be the best, or a good buy for those players on a smaller budget. Taking into account everyone’s different playing style, we put together 4 guns that survey a wide variety of play styles. This is not a complete list. There are several others guns that are good buys as well. However, here are four guns that will be a good buy.
We have added a new section to the left hand categories column. Here you will find a random set of guns, accessories or tac gear for a much cheaper price than normal. These prices expire and the items for sale will only be there for a limited time. If something in the Daily Deals section catches your eye you better place your order soon. And if nothing catches your eye this time be sure to check back later because the items will rotate.
