One of the many uses for 550 paracord is to make super handy little pull tabs to assist you with accessing the contents of your tactical gear, such as bags, packs and/or pouches. 

Today, I just wanted to quickly illustrate how handy they can be.  Not only can they help you get a better grip on the zipper, especially if you're wearing bulky gloves that inhibit dexterity, but if you use a contrasting color of paracord when compared to your bag or pouch, it can really help improve your ability to find the zipper in much less time, in the event you were in a low-light situation or in an emergency where timing is of the essence.  Or maybe you're just impatient and don't like having to hunt around for the zipper while getting into your stuff. 

In any event, high-visibility 550 paracord pull tabs are pretty sweet. 

Here's a little tactical tip for ya to help pwn more bad guys on the Airsoft field.  For the purposes of illustration, I've also included a bit of actual Airsoft action footage from my visit to Tac City South in Fullerton, California with the MilSim Junkie and the CQBJs.

M4 Airsoft Rifle Sling Mount Solutions - Tactical Gear Tip
Tom Harris for the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog
I made a video wherein I discuss a few different options you have when it comes to attaching a sling to your Airsoft M4 Rifle.  I happened to use the Elite Force M4CR and the Elite Force M4 CQB as my guinea pigs, but these are solutions which will work with pretty much most of the M4 AEGs out there on the market.

Today, in lieu of a Health and Safety Series for Airsoft Champions update, I opted to do a quick video on a very simple concept.  Switching hands when shooting from the side of a barricade to minimize the amount of body (or profile) that you're showing to the OPFOR as you shoot at them.  Make it as difficult as possible for them to hit you, to allow yourself more time to hit them first.  Some might not call this Rocket Surgery, but I often see players presenting more of a target than necessary for them to get their opponents into the line of fire...

Thus, an Airsoft tactical tip video after the jump...
