What kind have you guys used? On several occassions I've used strobe discs to either mark my stuff, distract/lure an enemy, or create a confuseing fight enviroment. once I put several of these down In our local WW2 fort when it was pitch black so i could see people come into my permeter without turning on my flashlight and giving away my postition. Since my friends have seen my use them to mark important things they are drawn to them thus making a trapping easy. i also have A weight on a cord which I can sling with a nice amount of force it can also be used like a boa but I've never used it for such purposes sometimes I'll put the strobe on the end and send it flying when the enemies looking up I'll shoot. I have alot more but I don't feel like writing anymore. Sleep

Does charging an enemy so your squad members can take them out easyer count. Like when you charge somebody and they run from there cover only to get shot by your squad mates. What I want to do is get something really shiny and tie it to a tree where it is very visable so if an enemy walks by they will hopefully be distracted by it makeing for an easy shot.

I've used flares as a marking/illumination utility. If you get one of them chucked anywhere near you, expect to be lit up with BB's. I mainly use em for night operations though. You just have to be careful because you can start a fire pretty darn easily with em. I've recently gotten into using glowsticks as a substitute, although they don't have the same effect.

I have left a bag of BB's lying around, I set up in a building a few feet away and waited. I only got 2 kills but it was funny to hear the stories they told back at the staging area......

Currently I am thinking about using a dummy patrol cap to distract a lurking enemy while in a defensive position. But I am still staying away from it as it will probably be more unused ounces than useful. One of my worse ideas was a dummy dressed with a wally world shotty.... Way to pricy, and probably pointless..... Laughing

Durkee, look into surplus chem lights. They glow brighter than the average glow stick. But they arn't as cheap as a glow stick.

Haha nice. Way to playing off the basic psychology of others Very Happy There was a story in the newspaper about "baiting" in Iraq, where a marksman leaves grenades or weapons in a field...then when an unsuspecting bystander goes to pick them up, he shoots them. Its horrible, but it reminds me of you! There were instances when it was kids who were just picking them up to turn in. Sorry, off topic a bit. Apologies

I suppose it would S.T.O.R.M fro the shiny thing you want you could either cut out a circle on a can and polish it up a bit and use that or some cheap mirror would work.

When I work in the summer I do plumbing and sometimes I do work on construction site. This is great becuase when people do this they tend to throw things out and for some reason I always find a mirror. But there ussualy big so I have to break them but that would be my best chance at that. I may try the can thing im always drinking soda or other things....

P.S. I'm not to serious about that it'd probally kill something

Completly useless in an airsoft match but it would be really cool to have one of those. If I was to get a luancher it would be an M72 or an M79

I meant one that would launch a handful of BB's like a giant shotgun.
