Equipment List (what to bring to my first big game)

Post by bryco13 » Fri Jan 18, 2013 4:50 am

Being new to this kind of game, my friends and i are interested in making a list as soon as possible to start accquiring items we will need to bring with us. We are waiting to make sure we can all register on the same side before buying our bdu's (we'd hate to buy full sets of multi-cam only to find out that side sold out before we could register). If anyone has a generic list of things to bring or suggestios of frequently forgotten items, it would be greatly appreciated.
-thanks!
