Force on Force Training Gear, Spring 2015

| April 3, 2015 | 0 Comments

Almost a year ago I wrote about what to bring to your first force on force (FoF) class. Earlier this year I interviewed a top tier Airsoft armorer on what to look for in an Airsoft training pistol.

I’ve posted several FoF scenarios already this year, and I’ve gotten some questions about what I’m using these days.

For the most part my gear has remained the same, with a few additions and replacements.

Since April 2014, here are the changes in my training gear:

  • I am only carrying one Glock Airsoft pistol. I used to carry two, especially before I started carrying an SBR / PDW. There was a transition period where I still carried two G19s in appendix holsters, but I’ve now gone to only using one.
  • I cut the Boker Fairbairn training dagger to match the same length as my Zero Tolerance 350 knife.
  • I added a TDI knife on my body midline. I have a custom Kydex training blade that is great. This is the most recent addition.
  • I’ve switched my coarse and crudely made Rothco shemagh for one made by Combat Flip Flops. This might seem like a minor change, but it has made a big difference in comfort. The CFF material is soft and doesn’t irritate my neck. It is also better made, and doesn’t rip like the one from Rothco.

Things are always evolving, and next FoF season I may try the foam NOK trainer knives. This will allow for even more aggressive training. I am not sure if that will add anything to my FoF experience, but I won’t know until I try.
