    i make my all own airsoft gear because i cant afford any. recently ive made 2 ghillie suits, a tac vest, a tac belt, and i make a lot of things out of old backpacks.

    Anybody make any gear before, and what did you use for it

    I had an extra camoflauge jacket so I cut off the sleeves. I custom fitted the pockets for my M4 magazines. I made the sleeves into a dump pouch. It sounds cheep but it works like it is suppose to.

    I used PVC pipe, foam and spray paint to make a silencer/barrel extention. People don't even notice its home made. I have to tell them lol. Then there like," whoow thats awsome can you make me one!"

    i got these real nice paint knee pads. now...they are not just for painting but that is why they we originaly bout. they have nice soft gel(doctor scholls thing) going on. then on the outside is somewhat like the bottom for a shoe.... but they are nice and hold up well.

    I made a holster out of an old canteen cover. An extra mag pouch out of a camera case (I actually did add stuff to it not just stick it on my belt) . Working on plans for a hydration pack out of a BDU sleeve. Silencer from foam, the inside of a roll of wrapping paper and a hard plastic hose extender for a vacuum. Some gloves made out of the feet of pantyhose because I hate sweaty hands. These were a fail because they shredded like tissue paper but they did keep my hands cool.

    I just don't see home made grenades being especially safe. Especially because most of them use explosives like firecrackers. I don't have a problem with playing with fire crackers but throwing them at ppl???

    I made a drop leg holster out of an old backpack,worked perfectly. Had 2 netted mag pouches and i could securely fit an m9 in there.

    i took apart two backpacks and take the large foam part that touches your back and used them for the front and the back. then i took the arm straps and hot glued them to the sides of the foam thing then i took the tiny pockets from the small zipper pocket and glued them to front. i also glued the cell phone holder to the front. finally i glued buckles to the sides. its not the best quality but it works. (might be a little tight for some people.)

    i took a old backpack spraypainted it camo and put a trash bag in it and filled it with water haha it looked rlly dumb but worked. i had to like rope around it and the backpack so it wouldnt spill, hardly ever use it though.
