So just getting my kit together, and wondered who's taking what to Tarawa? This is my little selection.

Very much looking forward to picking up the thompson and type 24.

On the day I'll be using a c96 and sword. Will use a rifle as back up though
Regards,

Ralph

I've got my K98 and my bodged up M14 conversion plus a rubber Bayonet.

I don't have a sword, but there are plenty of sticks at Eversley. I like killing the enemy with a stick, it is very satisfying. They often look a bit surprised.

will remind folks as per normal for my games while we talking GUNS GUNS GUNS

1) NO gun over 360 fps
2) NO hpa
3) NO support guns
4) and the ammo limit for this is 250, which to be fair is loads lol
5) may as well throw in the whole no real knives and swords :)

How many grenades per life? Battles at Eversley can devolve into burying each other in explodey things pretty quick. :whistle: :wink:
I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.
