Staff Feature Friday – Joe

Today we're bringing you another of our customer service reps, Joe! He's been here for just over a year and a half but prior to that, he's had 2 years Airsoft experience.

A previous addict of zombie survival experience work, Joe took the plunge and started to experience Airsoft in the great outdoors. Originally kitted out with a NUPROL - Delta Freedom Fighter, since working at Patrol Base almost a week later after starting, Joe took the plunge and purchased an ASG - CZ Scorpion EVO 3 A1. Why the EVO? Joe convinced himself it would be the last rifle that he'd ever have to buy... little did Joe realise the addiction of Airsoft. He's since continued to purchase additional pistols, shotguns, a sniper rifle and is now looking at KRYTAC... it's a never-ending vicious but enjoyable cycle.

Being a fan of the woodland Airsoft scene more than CQB, Joe still remains a lightweight running and gunner but a lefty! A benefit but can also be a little hindrance to some scenarios. A lot of people are not used to flanking around an object left-handed and are often taken out first. Joe can get that edge on the enemy and assist other team members on left flank tactics.

Joe's gear is highly practical, affordable and a mix of gear from ourselves and everyday clothing including his highly fashionable H&M cargo grey trousers. Starting from the head down Joe wears:

With Joe's EVO being roughly 12 months old now, he's not had any drama but has pursued a bit of an upgrade by changing the following:

  • Upgraded and short stroked gear set
  • Uprated piston (also short stroked)

Literally, everything else is standard other than the accessories which include:

As for his currently secondary (the go-to option), Joe is rocking an Armourer Works - Hi-Capa fitted with a Nextech - Pistol torch and is at home in a NUPROL - Hi-Capa Retention Holster.

Like most of Joe's Airsoft weapons, he really doesn't go to town chasing numbers like some of our staff members. If you want to check out more of Joe's feature you need to head on over to our Instagram account.

Buckle Up! We’ve got you a new load-out!

We're excited to show off the latest gear from 8FIELDS Tactical and we think you aren't going to be able to refuse it!

It's time to ditch the old, ripped up and muddy rig and go modular. The 8FIELDS Tactical - Buckle Up RIG's come in 6 different setups but all of them have removable front panels. This allows you to rip off up to 6x pouches in one go in a couple of seconds, then slap on your new buckle up unit for a quick change of environment or setup for your next game day.

So what are your options? You have six main rig options starting from the Buckle Up Chest Rig to the super low profile RECCE/Sniper Rig. Below is a list of the rig's followed by their main differences (click the images for link to the products):

  • Buckle Up Chest Rig
    • Benefits - Very low profile, includes STANAG magazine pouches and additional utility storage

  • Buckle Up Chest Rig V3
    • Benefits - Very low profile, larger utility storage and pistol magazine pouches
