David, I'm sorry to hear that you're dropping away from the groups but I fully understand your reasons why. It's been really great having you onboard and, as already said, we will always have a place for you should you want to come to a training day, or lead us for a game.

On a happier note, everyone give a big Hohenstaufen welcome to Jay851, yet another experienced, reasonably sensible member of our elite unit!

Let's not forget that Jay is also an accomplished custom gun maker. I'm really chuffed with some of the members we've picked up lately!

Chommers, im really sorry that your calming down a bit, but i totally understand you, my real life really stops me coming to as much stuff as i would like, but as a bonus, im always eager to come, im not suffering from the "burnout" i did with so much modern airsoft.

dave, im amazed you have done what you have done to get this ww2 airsoft going, (and to all other orginizers as well, they have all made it what it is) and i really appreciate it, also im glad your not "binning it" alltogether.


Roll on december,ive never looked forward to a game so much :good:

First post memberlist has been updated to reflect the removal of non-active and non-attending members. I'll continue to monitor the list over the coming months but it looks encouraging at the moment.

Hi all,
I would like to introduce myself to you all. I am Couchpotato (Rob) I have had an interest in WW2 since I can remember. I started to collect deac's and uniforms etc, then found out about RIF and joined a local airsoft club. Having found WW2 guns this was heaven to me. I began with a US Ranger load out (that i still use) then a FJ and since meeting up with Otto and Jay I now have a SS load out. I will try to make as many training days and events as I can. Due to family commentments (I have a special needs son) I sometimes drop out at the last minite and can be at an event at the last minite. I have seen that you all knit as a team and I hope I can fit in some where.

Couchpotato
Rob.

Great to have you onboard, Rob. (I totally understand family commitments, etc - I have a daughter with special needs.)

BTW, what kit do you have? :)

Hi,
Thanks for the welcome. I have so far the following kit.
M43 tunic badged up as EM, Fj trousers (used when cold), Pea dot trousers, Pea dot tunic (Awaiting del),
M43 cap, Gaiters, M35 or M42 Helmet (cant tell the differance), Belt and SS buckle, Oak leaf camo helmet cover (awaiting del), Bread bag, Gas mask case, Low boots, Y straps, MP40 Mag Pouch x2, K98 pouches x2, Luger holster, P38 Holster.

Weapons: Tanaka K98 plus ZF ( being serviced at the moment), Top MP40 rebuilt with the Upgraded gearbox, barrel, TM motor etc Cost a lot but worth it. Tanaka Luger (in show case) We luger, P38, AGM MP40, Dboys spring K98 (i like it many don't).

Thats about it for the SS kit line up. Also got FJ kit with many of the above items I share between load outs and a US rangers kit.
I hope this little lot meets the requirments.
Couchpotato.

Sounds good, couch. I'd probably ditch the FJ Springerhosen myself - I know some people wouldn't notice, but that's not a major issue.

Dot44 tunic is, as you imply, a versatile piece of kit. Worn over the Feldgrau wools in winter, or on its own in the summer - and no insignia necessary, if you don't want to spend more money. Shoulderboards and arm eagle would be the most you'd have anyway. I bought an HBT trousers and tunic for my Heer impressions, so if it's really hot, I can wear the trousers and Dot44 tunic.

Yes I could not spend £60+ on woolly trousers that would not be any good in the summer, And as I have the FJ's it's a means to an end. To be honest the places that I have and will be airsofting would not notice the difference. But don't worry I won't be wearing them to any CIA games etc.

Thanks Lardassmonkey I look forward to meeting and fighting with all of you.
