Honeywell UVEX S8500 Bionic Face Shield Airsoft Test

I’ve been doing force on force training since 2010. I’ve always used to forms of head protection: either a paintball mask for Airsoft-based training, or a FIST helmet for combatives + Simunitions work. Both have protected my noggin well over the years, but they share two common problems. The first problem is that they greatly obscure […]

I’m taking another Force on Force training class with QSI Training this weekend. Just about every class we have a student new to FoF training. One of the biggest barriers to doing this kind of training is knowing what kind of Airsoft pistol to buy, and what brands to look for (or avoid). I was […]
