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.

Feature Friday – Dan

In today's feature Friday blog post we bring you Daniel, preferably known to many as Dan he is the manager of HALO MILL our CQB arena. With HALO MILL being our sister company for those looking to release some stress and enjoy your recent purchases, Dan was keen to come to the store and show off very unique load-out.

The gear:

Dan has always been one to run a little different to the rest on the field due to his passion for GBB (gas blowback) primary weapons, from MP5's to AK's his heart often settles for a tasty, well built AK platform, a wise choice considering his latest and long time in a construction Russian loadout.

Built up with a mix of genuine, reproduction and additional Russian gear, you can certainly identify Dan on the field.

What's he rocking? Let's start from the head down:

Wanting to be different and bored of seeing so many M4's and fast helmets, Dan has definitely succeeded in bring ing a new look to the field, a menacing one at that too! The helmet isn't worn on every game day for obvious reasons (weight and heat), but it makes for excellent protection in a CQB environment. He always wears goggles underneath too, these photos are simply posed to some shots don't include his goggles!

The Guns:

As already mentioned, Dan is a profile GBB owner. A lover of the kick, realistic magazine capacity and weight. Dan's latest build is a simple, reliable and very robust GHK AK platform with Zentico clone rail.

Topped off with a VORTEX - Venom Red Dot for quick target acquisition, reliability and lifetime warranty for any accidental damage. Everything else is left completely standard! Keeping the magazines warm during winter and using the right gas during spring and summer doesn't require any adjustable bolts etc.

From time to time Dan may experiment between an optic with magnification, especially for those woodland game days at HALO MILL - Proving Grounds.

Lastly onto the pistol. Makarov, produced by WE these are surprisingly very gas efficient! The ultimate Russian backup for those close quarter take-downs. Full metal, available in chrome or black from factory these little guns just complete Dan's loadout perfectly.

Dan has also cleverly shaven out a G17 holster to accommodate the Makarov perfectly.
