Hey friends!

Welcome back to the blog! Well, in England Airsoft is beginning to resume - some local councils allowed sites to run last weekend but for the most part, it will resume after today, April 12th when the next set of lockdown restrictions lift and none essential retail/personal care/gyms and dance studios open! I cannot tell you how excited I am to play my first game back on the 17th! During the national lockdowns I have been upgrading and updating my kit, so I thought new belt setup blogs were in order.

Today we're going to look at my Ranger Green belt set-up that I use for CQB. I've recently replaced all of my old shooters belts, and for this new set-up, I opted for a TMC 1.75" Tactical Belt in Ranger Green. This belt has a Cobra buckle - not rated like the AustriAlpin buckles are, but it is more than durable enough for airsoft. It has an inner belt that is included that is loop velcro (the soft Velcro) that goes through your belt loops. The outer MOLLE belt that is lined with Hook Velcro (the rough Velcro) attaches onto the inner belt - the benefit of this is you can load your belt up with your pouches and holster without needing to take them off every time you can take the belt off/put it on. I purchased my belt from eBay, you can check it out here.

As this is a CQB set-up I've kept it super slick and simple. To hold my sidearm, I have a Deadly Customs DC4 Kydex Holster. My DC4 from Deadly Customs is moulded around an Olight Valkyrie PL-2 torch which means most pistols can fit in the holster securely as long as they have a PL-2 torch attached to them. You can adjust the fit of the holster by adjusting the screws on the side of the holster. It's really useful to have when I want to swap out my sidearm for the day. To attach it to the belt I've mounted it on a Safariland QLS on a Low Rider with a thigh strap. I got my Safariland hardware from a company in the Netherlands called Kydex Holster NLD.

Next up in the set-up, we have 2 Esstac KYWI 9mm pistol mag pouches in Ranger Green. These are simple mag pouches made from double layer 1000D Cordura that have a polymer insert that makes mags easy to pop in and out, and helps with retention. These are a new bit of kit for me ( purchased during our many national lockdowns) and I'm impressed with the quality! They attach using malice clips, which are included. I purchased mine from Tactical Kit, here.

Lastly, I have 2 of the 40mm Grenade Holsters from Deadly Customs, in the 'Deadly Cus-Tom' print. The 40mm Grenade Holsters from DC are a super simple Kydex carrying system that has been designed specifically for airsoft impacts that is compatible with any MOLLE system. Although there’s really not a great deal to talk about in terms of features as they are a super simple bit of kit – just moulded thermoplastic with an attachment system, this simply means there’s less to go wrong. One of the main selling points of Kydex carriers is that they are really lightweight so are perfect for low drag loadouts. 

They can be attached to a plate carrier or belt with either a malice clip or combat loop (which are compatible with any MOLLE system) that you select at the point of ordering. For all of my 40mm grenade holsters from DC I have opted for the malice clip (out of habit mostly). I like the malice clips because they’re easy to attach/detach when needs be and they’re also secure. Although you can attach them to any MOLLE system, I prefer to have mine on my belt set-up. The holsters allow them to be within easy reach so the deployment of them is smooth when needs be. They’re also easy to reindex.
The 40mm grenade holster from Deadly Customs fits all of the following: all versions of the Tectonic Innovations Quake Grenades, the Tectonic Innovations Neutron, TRMR, Alphatec Grenades, Pulse Armament B1 Grenades, EG WP40 Smoke Grenades, TAG Rounds and the Oshiboom Grenades (however as the Oshibooms are a little smaller than the other 40mm grenades on this list Deadly Customs recommends a few wraps of tape around the grenade to make it fit more securely).
