Internet Explorer is EEEEEEEEEEEEVIL

Internet Explorer is EVIL!

PSA: If you're using Internet Explorer, stop it its terrible, and our website will not work! A few users have been complaining that our website will not work with Internet Explorer 11, the browser made famous by being bundled with Windows, has finally become incompatible with our website, so if you're getting a product page like the image below unfortunately its time for an upgrade!

We've tried as hard as we can to keep the site compatible with legacy browsers, but as we've been adding features we knew eventually we would come across this issue. It's come to the point now where to offer the high level and secure service we must now say bye bye to Internet Explorer and move onto something new.

If you're seeing this on a Mac, there's no need to worry, you won't have Internet Explorer installed as its a Windows thing.

For Windows users we suggest you move onto something a little bit more modern. We suggest that you install one of the following browsers:

Chrome and Firefox have a 100% compatibility rating with our website, as well as many other more modern website designs. Upgrade today, it'll be faster and more secure.

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.
