Airsoft Training Resource: Your Rig, You Choose What's Effective - CQB Radio

Airsoft Training Resource: Your Rig, You Choose What's Effective - CQB Radio | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it

GREAT and NECESSARY article from the CQB Radio gang today on "running a rig" (yea, I HATE that use of the verb...but we'll kill that zombie in another post!) that will make you EFFECTIVE on the field.  Not a look-alike, but someone who gets kills and helps his team.   I've run my Civil war haversack at some events because it simply works...a catchall "man bag" that worked in 1860's battles still works in the 2000's...just look at what America's lighter, more-agile opponents are loaded down with.  NEXT TO NOTHING!  

Yea, NECESSARY....like ending "running" anything!

SB199...CALIFORNIA, you need to ACT NOW! - PD Editorial: Toys, replicas shouldn't look like real

SB199...CALIFORNIA, you need to ACT NOW! - PD Editorial: Toys, replicas shouldn't look like real | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it

"No one has a constitutional right to purchase toy guns that look exactly like real AK-47s and other automatic weapons. But one wouldn’t know that by the sound of some of the opposition to a sensible bill now moving through the state Legislature that would prohibit certain types of replica toy guns....."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

Since WHEN does a newspaper get to tell you, me or anyone WHAT our "Constitutional rights" are? (Capital "C", p-dems...check your AP Style Guide...)

California 'Softers...and MOMS AND DADS....this is in your hands.  If you think this proposed law will keep your children safe...think again. And CALL GOVERNOR BROWN NOW!

AIR STUPID FOLO: Family members say police account of Tuesday shooting is 'bogus' - KETV.com | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it
The family of the 32-year-old man who was fatally shot after a suspected armed robbery said despite his decision to rob the restaurant, neither man should have died in a gunfight.
Thumpy Covey's insight:

"She said the Airsoft gun her brother-in-law carried Tuesday night is a toy.

“And even when you pull it back, you hear how it pulls back, he said when you pull it back it sounded like a real gun? And Cortez fired the gun at them? Does that sound like a real gun to you?” she said..."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

He needs work on his firearms nomenclature....word you are lookind for is 'slide,'  not recoil.  Recoil is what is DOES...and apparently DID with enough action to get the attention of 3 police officers and some 20 rounds of real ammo...some headed back at the robber, and at least one bullet striking the COPS sound crewman.....

A suspect sped from the Springfield area in a stolen car, then brandished a realistic-looking pellet gun at police before a Springfield officer shot her early Thursday morning.

UPDATE on BACKSTREET AIRSOFT: Businesses regroup after downtown fire - thesylvaherald.com

UPDATE on BACKSTREET AIRSOFT: Businesses regroup after downtown fire - thesylvaherald.com | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it
Almost two weeks after an Aug. 16 blaze displaced five downtown businesses in Sylva, efforts to recover economically – and emotionally – are well underway.


"...Backstreet Airsoft also is being rebuilt. Like Saxon, owner Jeff Moss didn’t have insurance in place at the time of the fire. Moss’ business is largely devoted to selling replica firearms that fire bb’s; sort of like paint guns, he said, but they aren’t.


He said he wouldn’t know whether the electronic firearms sustained damage until he runs field tests. The radio and other communication equipment in his inventory were beneath an area where water used to fight the fire drained, so that part of his stock is likely ruined.


Until the building is ready for occupancy, Moss plans to bring in some cash by working as a vendor at an airsoft field in Penrose...."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

If you guys have ANY way of helping the Moss's get back on their feet...please reach out to MOSES at the LINK RIGHT HERE, via a PM on their Facebook Fan Page!
