    >wear dark crap meme

    Can you tell me anything you'd find in nature that is naturally dark outside of treebark

    You don't need consistent camo either, it just looks better. It's a pretty common thing from time to time to see guys sporting a different pattern jacket than trousers because the colours change dending on elevation of the body
    Merged:
    If you have rangerbands/elastic bands around your helmet then strapping bits and pieces of the surrounding nature on-top of it to hide the contours of it is a good idea

    in my incredible dogshit opinion, these would work best depending on the season

    flecktarn

    swedish m90 woodland

    oakleaf

    also a face cover like a balaclava since skin really sticks out

    Flecktarn is made for pine forrests, as is M90

    Partizan is good but primarily works for early spring/late fall

    also facecover is not comfortable unless you're laying still for a really long time or performing slow movements (think patrols/recon). I'd rather use facepaint

    I love wearing masking suits, feels like pyjamas

    most seem to be reversible too which helps

    aren't there like masks made out of ultrahighweight polyethylene that bypass this issue? i think the woods during autumn would be wet and could ruin the face paint but idk

    our uniforms are effectively smocks, minus the reversible part, so they're really comfortable


    OT of camo

    This is why you apply vegetation to your helmet

    There is a helmet in the second picture
    If you're wearing a helmet or a hat the water won't run down your face

    besides, most military issue facepaint is water resistant, UV protecting and mosquito repellent built into one package. If your facepaint fades away you can just apply more

    always wanted to try airsoft but none of my friends would be into it, is it worth going to it alone?

    I'd say so yeah, people are extremely welcoming in most sites because the more people playing the game the better it is. You'll make friends straight away

    You don't need friends to go, you'll make loads of friends there. Airsoft is a very, very welcoming community.

    Unless you're in America.


    I just bought a TM-M870 that I'm going to trick out. Make my own custom Magpul HPA system.

    The one field I went to with my good pal was honestly hit or miss. Some times it was great. Like I remember some random kids just fucking around and this one dude with just a literal nerf sword who’d occasionally just scream “SCOTLAND FOREVER!” And charge someone with it. We had laughed about it. Even the dudes on the other team.

    Then we ran into a team of those fucking milsim dudes. Legit more money into their kit then their guns. Full on fuckin ops core high cut, full like IV plates, fucking OAKLEYS, and all multicam. Oh and they were all overweight and not a single one of them ever served.
