Wrim's stuff

S&T Baby M4 AEG $132
G&P Baby Monster $250(ish)

The Baby Monster has custom internal parts so the economic choice would be to buy the S&T and then buy a foregrip and a Tank Flash Hider (the square thing in front of the barrel) separately.
And then if the S&T would break it would be easier to find spare parts.

That Tank Flash Hider looks pretty intimidating though!
I would buy a Baby Monster in a heartbeat if it weren’t for those corny markings. And the high price.
Unfortunately the flash hider is currently sold out pretty much everywhere.

If you’re interested in similar rifles (or are they called guns since they’re small?) there’s also the G&P Baby Pig and the VFC Baby M4.

Do you think they’re the same color? Maybe they used a stronger flash on the first image?

3 choices, help me pick!

1. Academy L85A1 (Clearance Sale) $49
http://www.redwolfairsoft.com/redwolf/airsoft/AEG_AEP_Academy_Academy_L85A1.htm

I actually ordered this but had to cancel it because I wanted to combine shipping & now I’ve had time to look at more options.
The battery seems hard to find and a charger isn’t included.
If it breaks it’ll probably be hard to find spare parts since it’s old and crappy. But you know… it’s green!

2. Tokyo Marui T21 Compact Boys HG Aisoft AEG (Dark Earth) $65
http://shop.ehobbyasia.com/tokyo-marui-t21-compact-boys-hg-aisoft-aeg-dark-earth.html#.U0w9vVcs18E

This runs on 6 AA batteries, so I wouldn’t have to worry about finding batteries :) It’s 70% Scale so it’ll probably look more like a toy than any other weapon. Ehobbyasia has a up-to-57%-off-AEGs deal going on, hence the low price. Same issue here, if it breaks, who could fix it?

3. S&T Baby M4 AEG $132
http://shop.ehobbyasia.com/s-t-baby-m4-aeg.html#.U0v—1cs18H
The cheapest “Baby” AEG I’ve seen so far. This has common parts most M4 rifles use, so if it breaks it should be easy to find parts. I’m currently looking for a compact CQB rifle so if I would spend a little more money I’d probably pick this. Would probably add a vertical foregrip.

Economically I could buy the first 2 pieces of crap and still have money over for batteries. But it’s so fun to roll around in the dirt, it would be nice to have something small to cradle.

Over all, cheap prices! All guns below 1000 SEK.

Which one should I pick? Any other suggestions?

Thoughts after my first day of airsoft

Couldn’t run in my ghilliesuit because it’s a one-piece like a dress.
Fixed the condensation in my gasmask with spit, so vision was… layered kaleidoscopic waterfalls. Drooping condensation at the end!
Got shot for the first time. A nice whip to the left shoulder.
Fell in love with the game.

I was little use to my teammates, being both blind and without a good distance weapon, but I loved every moment of it!
I loved crawling around in the mud but I’d like to be able to move quicker, maybe aim for some waterproof m90 in the future?
And some tractionstuds under the shoes to minimize slipping on the ice.

Stuff to buy:

Primary: Better eye-protection
Rifle (the smaller the better for fast movement)
Weapon case
All the bbs

Secondary:

waterproof gear
shoe stud slip-ons

I knew this guy (Obama) was a sap before he even got elected. I didn’t even bother to vote. Who’s the idiot now?

Yep. If you don’t vote you don’t get the right to complain about the results.

+Wrim Rimbaug Thing is, I don’t complain. It’s you idiots who go out and vote and then whine about how both candidates are working  for the illuminati. If you feel that way why do you even bother



Wow. Did not see that coming.


It’s booked! I’m going to my first airsoft event this weekend!
I might need some better protection though, so maybe these goggles above?

Made especially for us with glasses!
Looks like it would work with a helmet on as well :)

The use of real patches is a sensitive subject. Note that this isn’t about morale patches.

By Swedish law you’re not allowed to use military insignias during an airsoft game if you work for the army (the Swedish army frowns upon airsoft and consider it to glorify war) & it can also be considered “Föregivande av allmän ställning”, pretending to be a a public official person, like a cop or military personell.

It’s a law that you in theory could get arrested for but it rarely goes to court, most people get off with a warning, most commonly young guys driving around with a police sticker on their car.

Ever since the tragedy in Norway I think people think twice before trusting someone just because they wear a uniform.

Airsoft games are however played in a restricted area where everyone has agreed on a certain set of rules. A popular thing in airsoft is the art of impressions, imitating the dress code of a real soldier.

Some have the opinion that you shouldn’t wear patches you haven’t deserved, other people take it more light-heartedly.
Around here people who attend casual airsoft games mix and match their equipment to their own tastes.
Even if you should aim towards an imitation you’ll most likely end of with modifications because there’s military gear that doesn’t suit airsoft.

A good example would be the Stridsväst (Battlevest) 2000, a vest that everyone in the Swedish army uses but no one seems to like.
The pockets are the wrong size for mags, if you sit in a car you’ll get stuck on stuff etc.

I’ve thought about using a Swedish impression but after some research I might just stick to m90 pants, jacket & helmet cover & have everything else be proper airsoft gear.

Now, to the pictures!

I bought a m90 jacket yesterday.
The first picture above is the left sleeve. If you closely you see a darker part where a bow shaped insignia has been attached.
The second picture if the left chest where the last name would be.
The last picture is the right sleeve.

Dunno what to put on there though.
My nick, maybe some future airsoft group patch and… something else.

(You’re allowed to wear the Swedish flag as long as you don’t combine it with real army tags or something retarded like a swastika.)

Ding 100!

I’ve reached 100 tumblr followers!
Wow, thanks for enjoying my stuff!

I’ll keep posting more original content.
Currently this account is on an airsoft spree (& the occasional 12 oz mouse rant) and it’ll probably stay that way for the rest of the year.

If you’re into my airsoft/larp stuff I’ll add more videos to www.youtube.com/wrimfire in a couple of days when my first airsoft pistol arrives, along with some patches. I’m also working on adding stuff to my Swedish army gear.

If you decided to follow me to something unrelated to airsoft, I’ll probably post some of that too.

If you want to get more personal I have a Twitter account: www.twitter.com/wrimrimbaug

I love getting feedback from you so I’ll end this post with a question:
What made you follow me & what content do you want to see me post more of?

Another Nordic Battle Group insignia. This time fake?Yet another castrated lion but this time it’s shoved its sword straight through the head. And it’s lost hair on its legs for some reason.If it isn’t fake I wonder which country’s responsible for the design…If you still want to buy it here’s a link:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nordic-Battle-Group-Personalised-Mug-/400216367061?pt=UK_Collectables_Militaria_LE&hash=item5d2ec11fd5Sorry, I’ll stop spamming Nordic Battle Group stuff now.

Hard to find Riot Shield for sale on ebay!

No international shipping though :(

This is a piece of important history. The Russian police used these in the Ukraine riots but it’s also used by the police in other eastern European countries.

I haven’t found any official company on the Internet that sells this particular shield model.

It would look nice on a LARP or airsoft game. Are there riot LARPS/riotsims?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Infamous-Russia-Russian-army-police-metal-riot-shield-truncheon-/390814333809?ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1120

This is the only auction on the web (afaik) I’ve seen where you can get your hands on this shield, so this might be a once in a lifetime opportunity.
(unless they decide to upgrade their gear and make auctions out of their old gear which happens sometimes like the old round snatch shields from the british police a while back)
Someone please buy this, let it rot in your garage for a couple of years and then sell it to me!

Before someone corrects my nitpicking I guess I should explain that the image to the left is the symbol of the Irish 4th Western brigade from 2007 and the one on the right is the 1st Southern Brigade from 2010.
Apparently the variations in the symbols depend on which country your from.

Still, I’d prefer the penis-less lion before the lion who’s trying to stab himself in the forehead.
