Small snacks when out on field


By this, he means every bit of hard candy one might secure from any open rooms at the hotel.

How useful would a taclight be for this OP? Trying to decide whether to get a cheap light, or spend the extra money on something that would last more than an hour of use.

You don't need white light for OPNS2 gameplay. Other than to sort through your things in the parking lot, your money is better spent in another manner.

** Primary Eye Protection (It's not on your initial list ;) )

** Replacement hopup bucking

** Tools to field strip your AEG and open up the hopup assembly in case the nubbin is lost too. Don't forget an allen key to remove the body pins if you own a Classic Army AR-series.

Geez Village, worrying about replacing the hopup bucking?!! I would be less worried about that than a piston or gearset for that matter.
The gun should have been field-tested definitively prior to a large op such that a hopup bucking is the least of worries.

I also recomend having a Scout that can give proper directions to the Taco Bell. :)

The reason I mention the hopup bucking is because at least twice when I ran a cleaning rod down my barrel I accidentally pushed it past the hopup protrusion. This caused the bucking to slide off the barrel and into the breech. I can imagine if you had an old or stock bucking it might not be recoverable after the stretching, so I just suggest carrying a spare. Just think of what an Achilles heel that little tube of rubber can be!

Hint: Turn off hopup before cleaning barrel. ;)
Hint2: If unable to recover the hop packing (the little rubber cylinder), cut off a short section from the plastic tube of a nearby pen.

re: Hint 1: RTFM... it's in there Village ;)

re: Hint 2: I threw a couple of old Bic pens in my rifle case for that very contingency. There's a reason I call the packing a "@)(%*^)(#*&)(*Y&)#(%*&#)$#".

I usually bring an ice chest to keep my food/snacks/sports drinks in. I sometimes bring a pop-up canopy depending on the weather. Tools have been mentioned a few times, specifically a multi-tool is what I keep on my rig. Bring cash to the AO, not just for the trip. You may need to buy gear or BBs from a player or vendor. An battery powered "chem" light is something that cost about the same a regular one but obviously last longer. Remember that even though these list are extremely long the item can be split up among team mates.

Something I forgot: I also bring a camera!

Here's something to help those of us that are new to the Fort Wolters military reservation:

http://maps.live.com/default.aspx?v=2&cp=32.854913~-98.004577&style=h&lvl=17&tilt=-45&dir=0.676915607883909&alt=1268.64544264693

It's a 3D map of the AO, with the capability to zoom and pan around the elevations offered. You'll have to install the Microsoft Live Maps ActiveX control if it's not already installed.

I found two items in my rig indispensable over the weekend.

First, as recommended by HammerHead I picked up a Leatherman Micra multitool. This tool proved invaluable for pulling out cactus needles with its sturdy tweezers, and its main pair of scissors worked great for opening MRE packages and other packaged snacks.

Second, I was very pleased with Shot Blok energy snacks made by Cliff Bar: http://www.clifbar.com/eat/shot_blok.cfm?location=shot

Each small package packs 200 calories and the cubes do not melt in the heat, unlike Powerbars or chocolate based snacks. They provide an instant boost of energy and are easy to eat without having to wash down with water.

Has anyone gotten any new information about the magazine situation for NSIII. College has taken all my money for the time being so I'm stuck with a few hi caps. I know in the past they usually only allow low-mid caps. But as previously mentioned...... Im stuck, Soooooo... ya. :hammer:

I'd like to get this little snafu cleared but before I start making any serious plans to attend.

NSIII will not allow high-caps for riflemen. Mid-caps and below are required for riflemen.

We might be able to help you out.
