I'm trying to think of something to donate because it might be fun to have prizes for the top 3 best uniforms. I have an extra brand new rubber knife(no sheath though) I could donate. I bought two thinking my dual blade ninja look would be stylish but I think it works better in my head cause all it does in reality is get in the way of my gear. Sometimes just keeping things simple is good too though. I imagine the hosts will have enough on their plates just organizing this event. Anyway, just an idea.

Also, I literally can't stop mentioning this game to everyone I come in contact with.

A new addition to my loadout, a 1961-62 Marconi transistor radio under license from Toshiba, for listening to the US Armed Services Radio station during those lonely patrols in the jungle. Just need to find really old batteries to use it.

Pour le m16 ou le xm177, je te conseil du Classic Army. Il n'y a pas beaucoup d'autre marque pour ces modèles. Voici des adresses ou ils sont en stock.

Tu pourrais garder ta Thompson.
Il y a des preuves photographiques et des histoires de vétérans qui indiquent que des sergeants qui étaient souvent affecté dans des longues missions de patrouilles ou à la protections de VIPs dans les grandes villes du sud vietnam préféraient la Thompson à la M16, et cela parce qu'elle offrait une plus grande puissance d'arrêt que la M16. Une balle de .45 va faire beaucoup de dommages internes plutôt qu'une 5.56 qui risque plus de traverser l'ennemi sans faire beaucoup de dommage. Aussi comme les sous-officiers avaient un Colt 1911, ils recevaient déjà des cartouches de .45; alors avoir une arme principale qui utilise la même cartouche rationnalise leur inventaire. Et comme le sergeant est souvent en charge de l'allocation du matériel dans un squad, il pouvait s'autoriser cette entorse au réglement (avec l'accord du lieutenant).
