well in the end, it's just personaly preference. There's really no "perfect" set up for every body.

That is very true

For those deciding for a gun solely based on your height and you are a speeder like me

I am 5 foot 7 and Slim

- Full Sized AK feels clumsy but great for long range
- M14 Socom nice tight feel but same as the AK hard to run about with it
- M4 and MP5 have a good feel to it
- SCAR is the best since the stock has a nice cheek rest and I usually put it to the 4th position

Favourite Personal Choice - P90

For new guys going for the P90 I highly suggest you ask to borrow or rent other guns to try out. The P90 is definitely not for everyone as the Mags can be problematic and its usually the number one complaint that most people say but once you get the P90 its light, manuverable, and easy to store and carry to games.

I can store my whole P90 setup in a normal school back pack. CQB it is one of the best guns due to not having a barrel sticking out I can corner very well and does not give away your position.

Outdoor games its still good to use though I suggest having a upgraded soft hop up and you are still good to go. If you want added range stability 363mm barrel should help. I noticed my shots went farther when I swapped out the barrel.

Only downfall is that when shooting you usually have to go the side of cover. If say you wanted to pop upwards from a rock you would have to expose more of your body in order for the barrel to clear.

Also for New P90 Users who are hard pressed for gear

You can use cheapo Chest regs - EA AK Chest Rigs can fit P90 mags

I say being about 5"10 the only gun that felt right was the p90 and ak74 U. p90 is a great gun but if the variant types were avalible i would shoot for that. Mag issues are a first but the mechbox are nearly unbreakable or so im told.

Well, this sucks, the only gun that suits my height and playing style would be the m82, and a MP5K as a back up =/

Awesome thread! I already knew most of this but it's good to see some solid and easy-to-find help for people who don't know the basics. I personally will be looking at an M4 type with collapsable stock(6', slim 'n' sneaky, marksman). Any suggestions on sidearms?? :)

**EDIT** Also, I heard soaking your BDU's in white vinegar before their first wash will help seal in the color.. perhaps that is only with CAF issue gear with the thermal stuff?

Do players usually have a vest and a chest rig on at the same time? Or do you just need one of them?

Generally no unless they're go for some sort of real world impression. For the impression stuff I dont' think everyone games in their setups either. There should be a few shots in the SEALs thread I think.

truthfully i'm not looking to buy full camo outfits so would showing up in track or sweat pants with a punisher tshirt, and hoodie (all of course of a dark coloured general look) be okay for games?

Kit September 2nd, 2009 00:18
