Meet the original Jack, Jack Mk1 who was originally front of house staff but now assists in order processing. Jack has been here for a number of years and was originally famous for running through HALO MILL in his camo onesie. Yes... tactical pyjamas.
He even ran that unique loadout outdoors at Proving Grounds! Whereas today, thankfully he has grown into a more "practical" loadout which we bring to you in today's blog.
Jack is one of our lightest runners, not just because of his figure, but the rig and gun are very CQB friendly. Don't let his size put you off though, Jack's energy and also PDR upgrades allow him to run and gun for days!
As usual, let's start from the head down detailing his latest load-out:
With everything on the hip, it can make crawling a little harder but this loadout is primary for CQB / Urban game days. The belt is able to also take yokes/retention straps to take some of the weight and secure it over your shoulders too, should you want to.
The entire battle belt is well balanced by storing his pistol on the right hip and his magazines, grenades and more on the opposite hip to counterbalance the heavy-ish pistol with a loaded magazine.
Onto the rear, you can see the XBIONIC combat shirt is very well ventilated for those sprinting gameplays. These shirts are rare to come across and also very expensive! But they provide excellent ventilation whilst still keeping you warm during winter. This is also very thin, so getting shot whilst wearing this is not pleasant...
Jack's faithful PTS Syndicate Magpul - PDR-C has seen some minor internal tweaks to go along with the extended aftermarket outer barrel and suppressor. Out of the box, these things pack a punch and delivered great range for its size. However now, it's a little part-time sniper rifle almost.
The PDR-C has undergone the following makeover:
The upgrades, both internally and externally are purely for the added range for those occasional outdoor game days, plus it is quite the unique look.
Onto Jack's sidearm, it is a standard Tokyo Marui - TM.025 XDM .40, the main reason was from a previous owner of the WE model, Jack was a huge fan but was seeking something a bit more reliable.

Our last game day was held on the 4th of November, there may have been a few fireworks going off through the late afternoon too...
The event was massive last year, but we knew this year was going to get even more hyped by players, so we had to deliver a few more bangs.
Recap on the days scoring:
Well, what can we say from today but thanks to everyone who came to operation treason and made it one to remember. We have never seen so many objectives so bitterly fought over and great sportsmanship from both side, we also hope you all enjoyed the final display on the bridge.
The day was won by the non-banded team with 759 to the blue teams 750 it was a close game all day and from all our staff we thank you for your efforts in making these events what they are.
What's coming next?:
Christmas special! It will be Proving Grounds last game day for 2018, so if you are keen to experience woodland like never before, and face a few hundred enemy targets then get clicking here to find out more and book a spot or two.
