    Female air rifle shooter wearing glasses The Olympic air gun shooting events require a great deal of skill, serious amounts of concentration and apparently a weird pair of glasses… You may have seen the Olympic shooters rocking a set of glasses which look like a cross between horse blinkers and something you wear at the opticians, but do you know what they actually do?

  4. Archaeologists Find Viking Brienne of Tarth

  5. A Look at the Weird and Wonderful CIA Gadgets from History

    The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) recently celebrated its 70-year anniversary on September 18, and although it is a branch of the US Government that is steeped in secrecy, there are certain elements that have been made public. One of our favourite things to do is look at technology and how it has developed over time. We need only look around our shop to see how airsoft guns have developed over the years, so that got us thinking… How has the CIA’s gear changed over the years? Continue reading →
  6. The Best Airsoft and Air Gun Real-Life Replicas

    AK47 replica available from Surplus Store Surplus Store has stopped selling deactivated guns recently, and there are a few reasons as to why.

Though the history is appealing to many and we too love the craftsmanship in deactivated guns, a fantastic substitute is an accurate replica that retails at a lower price. The great thing about replicas is that they actually fire something and can be used for airsoft or target practice meaning they have more than just the ‘fun’ factor! Continue reading →

  9. Devtac & the Special Forces: Fact or Fiction?

    Airsofter posing with flare and airsoft guns. Devtac are known for making some pretty awesome airsoft gear (they’ve not ventured into airsoft guns, just some awesome looking armour) which makes people look like a mix of Boba Fett/Halo/Army of Two/General Grievous. Way back in March, we ran a story talking of the new Devtac Ronin Ballistic Helmet (found here for those of you who want to jog your memories), which was able to stop a .44 magnum slug at pretty close range. But they have started to up their game a little bit in recent years, producing ballistic armour capable of stopping live bullets, which caught the eye of Navy SEALs and Delta Force who decided to give the armour a test run… Or did they?
