So, you like my pistol, do you Zarb?

3 core players, plus... 4-5 newbies/eager beavers. We're small, but hopefully growing. It's tough with a small population that can be fairly transient, and we want to keep yahoos/idiots out.

And now for the first winter game... freezing/slurry rain, around 0 celcius, soaking wet but lots of fun. It felt like playing airsoft in a slurpy. Erm, a water flavoured slurpy.

Marpat woodland worked pretty well, in the picture with the bottom rock you can see me poking over in the top left. I mix it up with my multicam vest (I'll probably get a green one eventually but it's working so far) and it doesn't seem to bad in our terrain.

The ACU is amazing against the rocks, you can see Tex in one picture where it looks like his legs are invisible in the picture, ACU in general has impressed me this year with the coyote brown gear overtop, it breaks it up and a few times I only picked out Tex because of his big white face amongst the bushes. Time for some facepaint...

Gun Scythe with the mutlicam/tiger stripe was also hard to pick out, a few times I was taking fire from him but was off about 30 degrees (my guess of his direction) as he was so well camo'd.

I've never really had a temperature problem with a gun. Wet, cold...everything just keeps working.

My personal opinion is that a V2 mechbox will work fine down to very low (-35C?) temperature. The only weak point/risk would be the piston, but if you've got a good one of those you're fine. I'm fine with using stock pistons down to maybe -10 or so. People say otherwise, but we use them up here and they're fine.

Heh, heh... Slurpee.











And, no, Donster, GBBs don't work all that well; a few shots of my Socom Gear MEU and it lost power. The Tornados worked... a little slowly. But effective nonetheless. I got two kills thanks to them. One was direct on Gunscythe, the second one made him bolt from his cover so I could shoot him! And while it was cold, I was comfy in merino wool longjohns and a polar fleece hoodie under the ACUs. And I stuffed a glove warmer inside the crane stock to keep my battery from getting cold.

Agreed about the temperature. As long as the battery works they should be OK. And we break soemthing.... well, I guess we will call it quits for the winter and buy parts for spring.

That fog tech works wonders. I haven't been fogging at all. Today was 0 C or so, wet snow falling, running around, sweating like crazy, and no fogging at all.

Crappy Weather...

... But we play anyway. Foggy and 1'C with a buttload of humidity and two weeks of snow melting. Lovely.

One of our guys bought a box full of them, and gave us two each. From whence they came, I know not.

We were out this weekend for some gaming. -19 without wind, -30 or so with. Lots more pictures to follow, when we get some post production work done.

It is not. It's a Kabar, Next Gen type. Had it about 10 years or so.
