For anyone who knows me personally in the local Airsoft scene, it's pretty safe to assume that I'm going to bring a ton of stuff with me whenever I go to a game.  I HATE getting to a game and being without something that I end up needing, so I bring a lot of stuff to avoid that.  I don't recommend this approach.  However, it HAS justified itself on a number of occasions where either teammates or I got into a situation where we needed a specific item that I happened to have brought with me, whether it be a special tool or CO2 cartridges for Thunder B Sound Flash Grenades, chances are, I've got it.

So as I was combing my tactical beard this evening, in preparation for an epic 2-Day Airsoft game (OP: Final Option) up in Fresno, CA, I was mentally going over my checklist of things that I need to bring with me to the all-weekend event.  So I thought I might share my checklist for this weekend with you here, in case you were in need of ideas on what to bring with you to your big game.  Keep in mind, everyone's list is going to be different, and I'm not saying my list is, like, the super best most tactically legit list there is, but it should give you an idea of things to plan for during a 2-day Airsoft OP where you're camping out at the field.  This is also a list made for weather that tends to be pretty cold, but not snow/ice temperatures. So several items would be unnecessary for warmer temperatures.

Granted, I've got a lot more stuff listed than what I've illustrated to you in the photos, but you can start to get an idea of how things can really pile up. So don't judge me.  I'm sure I've probably forgotten a few things as well, but I've still got time to remember before I depart for my trip.

Speaking of guns, Pyramyd Air has some phenomenal Christmas deals going on right now. There are still several deals they have yet to release, which will be done over the next few days.
