Yes, I know this guy is Coast Guard, not SWAT or an assassin.
I just wanted to illustrate the type of kit I was going for here, and
in hindsight, this was not the best image to use, but it was one of
very few choices in my Google search results that allowed
commercial use.

I noticed a few new additions to Pyramyd Air's website and as I thought more about it, I decided that I wanted to write about creating an assassin/black ops/clandestine mission/spy loadout.  Not Black Ops, as it refers to the video game, but the black ops from which the video game's name was inspired.  The kind where the lone assailant, possibly CIA, possibly Treadstone, possibly IMF, possibly MI6, possibly something cool that I don't even know about, wears the all black kit, and goes out into the dead of night to send a few unholy souls back to their maker all quiet-like.    I suppose, minus the assassination missions, this could also be perceived as a loadout inspired by special law enforcement taskforce units like SWAT or that special Coast Guard unit guy to the left, who typically wear all-black or dark blue kits.

Why am I talking about this today?  I will be perfectly honest with you.  I love the high-speed operator loadouts, with tons of AOR1/AOR2/Multicam/OD/FDE gear, but there are some things you can do with black kit that can be pretty awesome, too.  I'm an equal opportunity loadout lover.

This is really more of a kit that you'd wear for CQB, especially if you're not part of a larger team with a set uniform standard already in place, unless that uniform has been established as an all-black kit.  This kit would obviously not be super appropriate, nor even allowed in some cases, at an outdoor, MilSim event at a MOUT facility or elsewhere, for example.  This is also not an attempt to do an accurate impression of any sort of agency operator, more of a kit inspired by all the spy/assassin movies I've seen over the course of my 29+ years on this planet. I'm going to play the part of assassin expert despite having zero qualifications for doing so because there is no way that you can stop me.

Papa Bear & Andy Green sent me one of their Elite Force 1911 A1 Tac CO2 GBB Pistols the other day because I whined & complained that Airsoftology, CrazyNCman & the MilSim Junkie all got one to review and I felt that there was some sort of conspiracy against me.  I also sold one of my very expensive saxophones and used the money to buy a sweet new Canon lens for my DSLR camera.  Since they both arrived in the same week, I figured it was the perfect excuse to snap a few photos using both items.

I also figured I'd review the gun as well, since that is why it was sent to me in the first place.
