Are you A Non-Permissive Environment Specialist?

Most people in the real steel and airsoft world's know Travis Haley by now.  If you've seen pics of him or  been on his website, you've probably seen the image below floating around.  If you aren't familiar with the story behind this picture and phrase, here's what JC from Haley Strategic says about it:

The Non-Permissive Environment Specialist patch dates back to a story I heard years ago when going the research for Black Powder/Red Earth graphic novel and games.  A low-vis team was rolling through Basra when they got compromised and were surrounded by a crowd.  Falijah-style, the crowd tried to get the guys out of the car, attempting to break the glass and roll the vehicle.  When it came down to it, the team cracked the doors on their hard skin, dropped some frags, and scattered the crowd.  They then came out with SAWs and fought their way to a hard point where

a helo extracted them.

So here's the gut-check.  While most of us will never have to be in that kind of situation, in what kind of environments do you perform best?  Are you a person who just does well when things are going smoothly, or can you man up to challenges (even ones that are unfair or unjust)?  Do you look at life and say, "Oh please don't" or do you say "Bring it"?  We need more Non-Permissive Environment Specialists today.

A look at the CP01 unboxed.

Everything you get with it.

Some 'training' resources.

Thunder-Bs - a great item for airsofters, just use them safely.


In TOTT we talked with Brian from the Infidel Airsoft team.  These guys are hard-core airsofters - check them out on Facebook and on YouTube.

Here's what they look like on.

The Mag Grips AFG kit - GREAT item, glad to have it.

Unique and pretty smooth to use - the Matrix Drop-leg panel.  It's made to grab mag fast and get em' into your AEG.
