    What you need :
    Pen and paper,
    a Torch
    Snaplight*,
    warm clothes, :)
    food,water,
    spare batteries,
    BBs
    BBs
    BBs
    What you want :
    Comm.s
    get your permission slip signed,
    NVG,
    tracer units (please see below)

    airsofteire appear to have a few TM tracer units in stock - the best about hands down.
    Load of tracer blaster bb's too. Not a fan of blasters myself but I might pick up a bottle to give em a try.

    I have the clone from ebaybanned - have it a couple of years and it's still going strong, but I know some guys have had no luck with them.

    If I had the money to waste (or if/when my existing one dies), I'll get the TM but I've been lucky with the cheapie so far...

    hope I haven't missed anything !

    On that note - anyone fancy being a spotter?
