Oil all Orings; Squeegee out barrels with water; fresh batteries in electronics; barrel blocking devices; fill all tanks; check laces (for cuts/broken laces are teh suck) in cleats; harness + pods; Mask lenses aren't cracked, are clean; knee and elbow pads; hat/sandanna/du rag; small towel; throw it all in your gear bag the night before so you can just "go."

EDIT: buy paint

not only works fine but is suggested if you don't have a mask cleaning solution, normal household items can and will weaken the lens, just use water.

For games I just make sure I have all my gear in order and clean, and inside my gearbag so it doesn't get damaged and I can get to what I need easily.

yep...a regular water bottle with squirt spout works good...and get a microfiber cloth to wipe the lenses after they are clean

Not soap! Don't EVER use normal soap again! It can weaken the lens!

In the future NEVER use any cleaner other than special pb lens cleaner.

Go to control panel on the top left of the page, somewhere in there theres the option to edit your signature. SO you put whatever you want in there.

regular household cleaners can also weaken or eliminate the thermal chemicals on the lens... thus making your lens fog up, or fog up easier. Water and a soft, lint free cloth is about all you need... Same thing they reccomend for eye glasses.

Not only will they damage the thermal coating on the lens (if your has thermal coating) it will damage the integrity of the lens, making it more likely to shatter.

:yeahthat: Not a purty sight watching a lense break, and it's VERY dangerous for the player as well.

Some of us aren't nub enough to put our gun specs in our sigs, and instead put in our feedback or whatever we want to support (stores and such, like CPBS in my sig). ;)

Fixed. ;) Not many people get me out in a game... And when they do, it's usually a damn sand-bagger I didn't see slipping into the mix.
