    I wondering what should I get for my outfit cause I planning on (generally): pants, soft shell jacket type of top, nylon-ish face mask, boots, and a chest rig. Maybe a helmet or hat/cap, with everything in black. Help please? Changes need to be made (equipment and/or colors)? Thanks anyone who helps.

    Do you play CQB or field? Anyway I would stay away from all black. You're definitely going to need to raise your budget for quality gear.

    Try to find colors that match the environment you play in.

    We can help with the uniform based on pictures, and I can say right now that Khaki is probably a good choice for your tactical gear.

    Woodland? Desert? Urban? You have to help us before we can help you... Also, what type of gun do you have and do you carry a sidearm?

    Thanks, Grin, and I'll take pictures when I can. To Broadway, I usually play in a moderately wooded area. Yes, I do carry a sidearm it is a KWC Sig Sauer P226 and my primary weapon an H&K Hk416, which is H&K's version of the M416, which is an assault rifle/carbine. I have a foregrip and a flashlight on it. Hope this will help you.

    So you need an OD, coyote brown, or maybe woodland camo chest rig with M4 mag pouches, pistol mag pouches, and a holster, or are you running a drop-leg?

    Thanks for those suggestions, and yeah I am looking to get a leg holster instead a belt one or anything like that. I already have a belt one but I hate it when I am running because it always moves around, I just can't stand the thing.

    Hopefully these pictures will also help you. Also, should I buy some of the gear at a army/marines surplus store?

    Look into some surplus M81 woodland, the kind the army navy stores sell for 10 bucks, that or look into some marpat or multi cam. A good pair of surplus army jungle boots 30-40$. Look into some full seal goggles or a full face mask. Also when you are buying your drop leg and what ever you decide to keep your mags in (chest rid, plate carrier, ect...) DO NOT SKIMP. If its cheap it is most likely crap.

    I already have some full seal goggles but thanks. I also have a full face mask, more specifically a paintball mask. I am actually looking to maybe get a mask like they use when in Afghanistan or something similar to it. I can't remember the specific name for it though... Anyways, thank you for your help, too.

    Are you talking about a shemogh? Make sure you can wear it at the field you play at before you buy it, and if you do get it wear it right.

    Oh okay, I will, thank you. I usually don't play at a field because there are none close to me. Still, thank you, and don't worry whenever I play some airsoft I do have permission and the authorities and local people know about what we're doing.

    As for gear, I would ask Knief, He is knowledgeable and very helpful. Also listen to these guys, they mean the best.

    Alright thank you, Hartman96. You helped me a lot. Oh and just for anyone who will help, I am also into somewhat improvising like, buying a skateboarding helmet an spray painting instead of buying an expensive airsoft helmet.

    This is cheaper than any "good" looking skateboarding helmet at my local Wally world. But I still wouldn't get it, id save and get something like a MICH replica if your looking into helmets.

    The only M416 ever manufactured was and is HK. It's not 'their' version, it is the version. What magazines do you carry?

    EDIT: You may want to get a non-LPEG before you buy expensive gear.
