WORD ON THE STREET, Part 2: Speaking with Derek from G.M.S.O.G., a great airsoft field in Vermont.

ASSESSMENT: Our first AEG reviewed in Assessment was the H&K dual-power MP5 sent to me from Pyramyd Air.

All packed up and ready to get into it.

Here's the included speedloader with the "guide" at the end of it to help make sure the BBs end up in the magazine.

The H&K dual-power MP5 - a nice, entry-level gun for plinking with friends.

The second AEG we looked at was the H&K MP5 - a step above the dual-power MP5 from H&K. Thanks again to Pyramyd Air for this AEG.

No box here - just plastic.

This AEG comes with: the gun, a sling, a sight mount, a reflex sight, instructions, a charger, some fuses, and a 9.6 volt battery.

A solid lower receiver and the H&K trades.

Skirmish ready and not too expensive - the MP5 from H&K.

The last gun we reviewed was the super-compact Well G55 gas blow-back MP5K. Thanks to Airsoft Extreme for sending me this item for review.

Here's what you get in the box (nice closed-cell foam included).

With a great rate of fire, this is a nice gas gun and a great CQB weapon or a back-up for a sniper or DMR.

TRICKS OF THE TRADE: Next, we spoke with Scaar from AATV. He and Shadow do in-depth and pretty funny review of airsoft items.

LOADOUT: Loadout was all about gun bags. The first two are from UTG and Pyramyd Air sent them to me to review.

Take a look at the UTG Dual Gun Bag.

Lots of straps inside to hold your guns in place.

The 2nd bag was the UTG Soft Case

The last 2 bags were the Condor Rifle Bags - one from Airsoft Extreme and one from Airsplat.

A look inside the outer pocket.

Storing my LR300 in the bag.

Here's the bag in black. It also comes in tan.

RETAILER REVIEW: In our Retailer Review, I interviewed Patrick, the chief operating officer from Pyramyd Air. Check out the Pyramyd Air site - http://www.pyramydair.com/

JUST IN: New items to the airsoft world is what we talked about during Just In. Take a look at this strange but interesting JG PDW.

Hope you enjoy it. Check back on the blog for updates.

Keep on firin',
