Hey Sturmur, I posted my collection of categorized photos a while back which you might find useful if you have not already downloaded it.

For a general look, all you really need is CIRAS (with a good choice of pouches, i.e. nothing too fancy, but wisely arranged), a MICH2000 (with the regular NVG mount for army), ACU, some sort of desert boots, and a M4 RIS.

Though you might find SEAL stuff to be both more interesting, as well as less restrictive in what you can use. Just a heads up too, the IBH is typically considered a SEAL item.

IMO a very good SEAL or SF setup can be created for about $6-800 given the wide choices of very high quality replicas of SOF equipment out there today (discounting the cost of guns of course), so long as one does not make any junk purchases along the way, which unfortunately most people can not avoid while in a process of trial and error.

Yeah, the M110 is a beauty of a gun.

I've got one of these on the drawing board, just need a few more parts and the gun is done As for the Green Berets, just go with standard army ranger look.

Nice. I like the shemagh. It's a good and popular tool of protection from the sun and BBs.

One thing that jumps out at me is the non ballistic helmet, not sure the skate helmet you've got really works for the impression you have going.

The taclight is on the wrong side of your rifle. You put it on the same side as the ejection port if you're right handed. Two reasons:

1) So that you can turn it on with your thumb while gripping the vert grip
2) More importantly, you always lay a rifle down with the ejection port up.

This is mostly a technicality but since I'm a left-handed shooter then having my flashlight on the left side of my gun makes sense, right ? Only problem being that airsoft doesn't allow me to have a left-handed receiver.

Yup, that's a valid point. Biggest thing there is that if you lay the rifle down to fire over cover (for example if you have to use a vehicle for cover) the E-port is up so the rifle can cycle properly. If your flashlight is on the other side, it's interfere with your firing position.

It's tough to explain....have to demonstrate some time.

Nah I get you on that one so in my case I'm fucked unless I work a lot more on my weak side. I have to admit that for general purpose it makes a lot more sense to have any side accessories on the right side.

Thanks dude! If you don't mind me asking, what would you be using yours for? I usually just have a bunch of tools and electrical tape in there.

That sounds about right. Other creature comforts related to airsoft could find their way in there as well. Like spare batteries, bag of ammo, etc.
