Vism/NcStar Plate Carrier Vest

A Warm Greeting to all you Blog Readers

With the recent upsurge of shooting sports and shooting gaming sports, ie: Paint Ball Gaming and Airsoft Gaming, there seems to be a huge increase in demand for tactical gear as the participants want to dress up in the latest tactical gear that not only looks “Cool” but does help in lessening the pain of getting hit. They say that “War, is not all it’s cracked up to be” and that may be true of the real thing, but in the “make believe” world of Gaming, “War” is just the coolest thing to do. Also it’s one of the fastest growing sports around with everything from a bunch of guys getting together and “Shooting the Sh*t” out of each other to Multi Club Games where you get up to 5000 people, Tanks, Jeeps, Armored Cars, and Artillery turning up to re-enact any particular Historic Battle, using either Paint Ball Guns or Airsoft Guns. As with all modern battles, most of the Western Allies tend to use “Body Armour” so to, in the Gaming Circles with shooters who are in British or American Uniforms, there is now Body Armour or Plate Carrying Vests available for the dedicated Gaming Warrior.

The team at NcStar have quickly jumped on the Band Wagon with the new Vism Plate Carrier Vest ~ O16. Which in my opinion is a great thing, (as I have it on good authority that the “Gen. II Zombies” all shoot back.) So it would make sense to Armour Up and grab your personal Plate Carrier Vest before the next “Pandemic” strikes. As the Plate Carrier doesn’t come with any Bullet Proof Plates, you get to choose what level of plate you need to survive your particular set of circumstances. The Vism Plate Carrier Vest ~ O16 will accept most sized armour plates for your front (Chest & Stomach) and your back. The whole thing is absolutely covered in Molle webbing, front and back, so you can attach a heap of gear onto it, from Pistol Mag Pouches, right up to Shotgun Scabbards and every thing in between. The only weakness that I can see with this rig is that there are no provisions for Side Plates, so always make sure you are either facing the incoming fire, or running directly away from it. (I haven’t seen body armour that will stop a .338 Lapure Mag. round yet!)

Here are a few things that I like about the Vism Plate Carrier Vest ~ O16. -

1) There are top and side, Heavy Duty Quick Release Buckles so that if you get hit by a RPG Rocket (that didn’t explode,) you might want to divest yourself of the vest fairly quickly.

2) There are fully adjustable shoulder straps to adjust the height of your plates, and the shoulder straps have removable shoulder pads (which are also covered in Molle webbing)

3) There is a Serious Drag Strap on the back so that you can be pulled out of the “Sh*t” quicker than got into it, and 2 x “D” rings on the front for attaching Karabinas, Ropes or Grenades.

4) There is 2 x Adjustable, Wide Stretch, Side Belts for optimum comfort and wear-ability, with a large pouch on each side for holding water bottles, extra mags, food or medic supplies.

5) There is a horizontal pouch across the back that will fit a poncho or a light jacket, which is a great idea because when hunting Zombies it can get wet and cold.

6) Colour options are – a/ SWAT Tactical Black, b/ ACU Digi Camo, c/ Desert Coyote Tan. Now you can colour co-ordinate your Plate Carrier with your favorite Camo Uniform

So my friends, whatever the situation is that you need to go out and unload some .30 cal rounds with the prospect of drawing some incoming rounds, you might want to consider throwing on a Vism Plate Carrier Vest ~ O16 just to give your vital organs that “extra piece of mind”

Happy hunting and Gaming………………………….. The “Quartermaster”

 

Vism/NcStar Battle Belt

A warm greeting to all you Blog readers out there in Zombieland

Here we are once again, hard at it with pen to paper, (figuratively speaking of course) with a terrific new piece of kit, for those “Blitzkrieg, Shoot ‘n’ Skoot” missions, to blog on about today. What we are talking about is the New – Vism/NcStar Battle Belt ~ O10………………….We know that the folks at NcStar have been working overtime to bring you all these new ideas before the Apocalypse happens……………(whoops, did I just say the “A” word????…………….. hush my mouth!!!) We have gone to great lengths in past Blogs to check out Assault Vest’s, Chest Rigs, Webbing, etc and now we have another “Load Bearing Belt” to check out. They say that “There is Room for Everything Under the Sun” and “There is a Time and Place for Everything” this is so when it comes to a Battle Belt.

When you are planning your “Mission” or planning your “Range Day” or even planning your “Hunting Trip” there are certain items that you must have, depending on what you will be doing and how long the Mission or hunting trip is, and what essential gear is needed. The nice thing about a Battle Belt is that if your Mission, etc. is a short one, or you only need a few mags for your range day or hunting trip, then a Vism Battle Belt ~ O10 is certainly the way to go. Sure you can load up with everything, including the kitchen sink, but just remember………………. You have to cart it all, and gear has a habit of getting heavier as the day progresses. While I personally love the AK Chest Rig, there is definitely a place in my Kit Bag for a Battle Belt.

I say this because as we all know, and it doesnt matter whether you are a Hunter, a Range Shooter, a Airsoft Gamer, a Paint-Baller or a Zombie Killer, some Missions are going to be a “Blitzkrieg” In & Out and Gone Mission where you only need a few essentials and Speed is of the Essence, as they say. This is were the Vism Battle Belt ~ O10 would come in handy as you can set it up with whatever pouches you want, in any configuration, as the Battle Belt comes covered with Molle-Pals Webbing. The Belt is a Quick Release, Fully Adjustable, Heavy Duty belt that will fit a waist from 32″ up to 48″

Here are a few reasons why I like this item -

1) COMES WITH LOTS OF FOAM PADDING AND INTERNAL STIFFENERS TO HELP DISTRIBUTE AND SUPPORT THE WEIGHT OF YOUR SHOOTING GEAR COMFORTABLY

2) COMES WITH MULTIPLE ROWS OF “PAL” WEBBING ON EACH SIDE PANEL FOR ATTACHING ALL OF YOUR GEAR,

3) ALSO ALLOWS YOU TO QUICKLY RECONFIGURE YOUR POUCHES, ETC TO YOUR OWN SPECIFICATIONS

4) THE “BATTLE BELT” ALLOWS EASY ACCESS TO YOUR PISTOL BELT THANKS TO A LARGE OPENING ON EACH OF THE SIDE PANELS. PERFECT FOR ATTACHING A DROP-LEG HOLSTER TO

5) COMES WITH A LARGE PADDED BACK PANEL WITH 3 ROWS OF MOLLE WEBBING, WHICH IS EXCELLENT FOR ATTACHING “DUMP” OR UTILITY POUCHES TO

6) COMES WITH 2 ADJUSTABLE ELASTIC CORDS AND EXTRA EYELETS THAT MAKE IT EASY TO CUSTOMIZE THE POSITION OF THE BACK AND SIDE PANELS

7) COMES WITH 5 METAL “D” RINGS SPACED AROUND THE TOP THAT MAKE IT THE IDEAL CHOICE FOR SUSPENDERS OR “LBR” WEBBING

8) COLOUR OPTIONS -

a) TACTICAL BLACK – SKU ~ O11/B
b) ACU DIGI CAMO – SKU ~ O10/D

9) MADE FROM HEAVY DUTY ( 600 Den) PVC FABRIC

So my friends, if you need a “Shoot ‘n’ Skoot” Blitzkrieg Belt, It would pay to pop one of these little beauties under your Xmas Tree this year.

Dosvadanya Comrades……………….Have Nice Day!!!……………………………………..The “Quartermaster”

 

 

NcStar Cantilever Tri-Colour Dot Sight

A warm greeting to all your blog readers

I do apologize to you all for missing a few weeks blogs, but I have been on holiday for a couple of weeks and since getting back I have been absolutely “Flat Out” trying to catch up on the back log of work. (I think I need another holiday!!!) The good folks at NcStar in “Zombieland” have been hard at work though, coming out with a heap of NEW items that I will be trialing over the next month or so. They have some really “Good Sh*t” on the market now so keep checking my blogs to see what is the “Latest & the Greatest” gear to buy, for all you Zombie Hunters out there. Maybe the people in charge have got it wrong and have missed a Leap Year, or something, perhaps the “End of the World” is this Dec. I’ve heard that soon they will have Robots that will be able to play soccer with humans – “WTF!!!”…………………Yeah, Nah!!! probably use us humans as the soccer balls.

Anyway enough of Zombies, Humans and Robots playing soccer. What I’m going to check out with you today is a really cool Dot Sight. What we are talking about here is the NcStar Tri-Colour Cantilever Mount, Dot Sight ~ R45. This is one tidy little unit if I’ve ever seen one. It comes with a choice of dialing up 3 different dot colours, Red Dot’s for the Robots, Green Dot’s for the humans and Blue Dots for the Zombies………………..(“Way to Go, Bob”) How’s that for the height of “Coolness” as the Fonz would say. Each colour comes with 3 brightness settings to take the dimness and brightness of the day into account.

This compact Dot Sight is only 5.0 in’s long and 2.7 in’s wide and weighs only 8.9 oz (including the mount) so for someone who hates carrying too much extra weight around, like me, this looks like the “Bee’s Knee’s” of Dot Sights. The single Cantilever Mount, that will mount onto most Weaver or Picatinny Rails, has a Iron Sight, See Through Tunnel which I think is always a good idea, especially since “Murphys Law” always comes along at the most inopportune time, and it’s comforting to know that you have your Iron Sights as a back-up.

One of the things about Red Dot Sights that appeal to me is that you have an unlimited eye relief, or to put it another way, you aim & shoot with both eyes open, so in effect you see a hell of a lot more. Your peripheral vision doesn’t change like it does when you look through a normal scope. But in saying this the Red Dot System is a fast acquisition sight for close range shooting, when speed is of the essence, where-as a proper magnified scope is more about long range shooting where time is not such an issue but accuracy is.

The magnification of this Red Dot is the usual 1 x power and the dot size is 3 MOA with a Platinum lens coating for a super crisp, clear picture. The battery that powers the whole thing is a CR2032 type flat button battery, easy to find and cheap to replace. Stock up before you go on your next mission and get 10 or 12 of them, they take up absolutely no extra room or weight. So the next time you go to replace or purchase a new Red Dot Sight, check out the NcStar Tri-Colour Cantilever Mount, Dot Sight ~ R45, you wont be disappointed, they certainly are a “Niffty” little sight

Happy Shooting………………………………………………..The “Quartermaster”
