Coming back for summer (2011)

Posted 03-28-2011 at 04:00 PM by ECHOES
Hello gents, I have been on a hiatus for the airsoft world for the last year. Life caught up with me, college was starting, and I just found I had less and less time for the hobby I loved. So I sold the majority of my kit (PC/etc) and all my blasters.

Moved down here to Tampa, FL (where I am currently) to attend the University of South Florida, Majoring in Mechanical Engineering.

But come May...

I'm back *****es.

So I'm currently working on my kit for the summer, I'm feeling AK lust. Smooth Soviet design, banana mags, 7.62/5.45 goodness.

ARs are dead to me. Alot.

Alas, I'm setting up my kitlist. I'm picking a bit of it up as I go, along with a few items I still have left from awhile ago. I'll be posting updates on my hunt for pre-loved items and giving them a proper home. Feel free to comment or if bored suggest anything ya feel.

Current progression of kit list (xxxxx* denotes in possession)

First Line
-DBT Padded MOLLE Belt in RG*
-2X Pantac Double 9mm mag pouches in OD*
-Maxpedition Mega Rollypoly dump pouch in OD*
-Safariland/SERPA Holster for Beretta M9/92 (Right handed, Any color)
-Assorted Grimlocs (Just cuz they're awesome)
-SDS Single Frag pouch in Woodland (Holds my Gerber Multitool)*
-Some sort of small horizontal GP pouch? (or double frag) in OD/RG/etc of course

Vest
-Pantac Wasatch in OD
-Pantac MAP with hydro pouch
-Pantac Admin in OD*
-ECHOES Nametape (2X for front/back)
-O+ POS Patch
-NO PEN Patch
-Airsoft Ohio Patch
-Etc pouches as I assemble my rig

Blasters

Primary
Like I said, I'm going the AK route for my primary. I've dealt with ARs, M249s, M14, P90s, and I'm going simple and old school. No clue what I'll find. I'd love a stock/virgin TM AK47. Or maybe go the GBB way, I've seen GHK AK74s? No clue on the GBB crazy that apparently started while I've been away. Anyone know anything about them? After doing some research they're appearently GBB units in a Dboys body, no clue on that.

Sidearm
M9/92 for sure. I'm looking for full metal/reliable, so probably a KJW. Bunch of magazines too, four in my first line kit with one in the gun. I tend to use my sidearm as much as my primary, mainly due to the feel/lulz.

Yeah thats about it, we'll see where it goes. Kinda interesting starting from new again, but I like it.

    If you want an electric blowback AK, I recommend the Echo 1 Red Star Wolverine.

    Oh ****. Found a RS M203 heatshield at a gunshop for a M16. Maybe a M16A4 in the works?

    For a reliable, full metal M9 I would go with the KWA. The new NS2 gas system is super nice.
