Hey everyone!

Welcome back to the blog! Today I have another player spotlight for you, and this time it's on Callum from Dust Monkey Apparel! I first noticed Dust Monkey Apparel on Instagram after Callum posted a really unique Post Apocalyptic loadout and have been a follower ever since. His loadouts are some of the best I've seen on the gram.

Thanks for taking part in the FFA player spotlights! Can you tell my readers how long you have been playing Airsoft? What originally got you into it?

I have been playing now for going on…19 years…. Which is a really long time when I think back on when I started.

I had a friend at school who had a room, a literal room, in his house full of airsoft guns, and he’d invite a group of us round and we would have these skirmishes in his, rather oversized garden. That got me hooked, back then it was Wolf Armouries or import directly from Asia. My first ever gun was the original TM ak47, almost all my first guns were TM, to be honest.

What’s your playing style?

I am not sure I have a style per se, I tend to lean towards the more niche aspects of airsoft. Vietnam events, Post Apoc events, etc. I do still do the odd milsim but I love any excuse to put together a really unique loadout. Post Apoc and Nam are both great genres to put loadouts together for. I have also built full-blown sci-fi and cyberpunk loadouts as well, so yeh the trend here is unusual. 

Are you a woodland player? CQB fan? Or do you like to mix it up?

I like both, but to be honest, I am a bit bored of generic woodland sites, I prefer sites that are unique and offer something unusual.

What can we see you running on the field? (Favourite pieces of kit)

It truly depends on my mood on the day, if I am rocking up to a Sunday skirmish right now it will likely be one of my Russian impressions either my VDV loadout or my Escape from Tarkov PMC kit. I love Russian gear so all my none weird and wonderful loadouts are Russian.

What’s your most memorable event?

Without a shadow of a doubt, it's two, one historic and one I go to every year. The historic one is the first-ever Distant Thunder event, it was my first large-sized event, camo rules for the 4 sides, civ pop, ammo limits, well-communicated missions throughout each day. It was just an amazing dabble into what airsoft can be when it wants to. 

My current love is Blodsband Reloaded ( BBR) in Sweden, it’s a 3-day Neverland if you are into post apoc. An enormous sandbox on a site so large vehicles are hugely beneficial ( and yes all vehicles look right out of Mad Max)

The community over in Sweden is something else, everyone is so helpful and welcoming. 

Is there any advice you can give to other players out there?

Don’t feel you have to follow the trends, want to do a weird and wonderful loadout.. do it.. who cares, it's your fun after all. I think there is a tendency to take airsoft way too seriously and remembering that most of us started out to simply have fun is never a bad thing.

Where can my readers find you on social media?
