If you've ever played Call of Duty, Doom, Duke Nukem, or any first-person shooter video games, and wondered what it would be like to experience the pulse-pounding adrenaline rush of combat (without actually risking life and limb), then swing by the TerrorWerks booth - West concourse, Room W221a and b:

Our recruiters are walking around MegaCon, looking for a few good candidates. Just look for the handsome guys in dark digital camo with a tactical vest on, and they can show you the way.

Pick of the Day: TRU Combat Shirt

It was a great day to play airsoft at Waynes World in Ocala, FL yesterday, and it was also a great day to wear the TRU Combat Shirt. The body of the shirt is made of a soft, moisture-wicking fabric that will keep you cool and dry in hot weather, and it layers very easily under a vest or plate carrier.


We will actually be wearing the Digital Urban/Black combat shirt as part of our U.S.M.S.C. loadout at MegaCon this weekend.

If you don't already have one of these, you need one! And we've got every color combination listed in the store at MAP. We also give discounts for group orders. Please don't hesitate to contact sales@darkthreads.com for more info. Thanks.

Pick of the Day: Woolrich Elite Fleece Vest

Here in the 'Burgh, March is one of those unpredictable weather months where you could have anything from snow, to rain, to warm, humid temperatures. That got me thinking about the new Woolrich Elite Fleece Vest - a great piece for layering.
On the blustery days, it can be worn under the Woolrich Elite Waterproof Breathable Parka, or it makes a great topper for any of the Woolrich Elite shirts. It's also got these useful features:
  • Two large cargo pockets with zipper closures.
  • Accessory loops inside pockets that can secure magazines or a small handgun.
  • A two-way side seam zipper provides ventilation and access to the waist area.
  • Chest pocket with hook & loop flap closure and expansion pleat.
Please check it out in our web store! Thanks.

One of the most innovative new developments from Tru-Spec, and we have it! Just added the XFire FR TRU shirt and trousers to our web store.

On 26 April 1986 at 01:23am, reactor number four at the Chernobyl plant, near Pripyat in the Ukrainian SSR, exploded. Further explosions and the resulting fire sent a plume of highly radioactive fallout into the atmosphere and over an extensive geographical area. Four hundred times more fallout was released than had been by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

The Zone of Alienation was established soon after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, in order to evacuate the local population and to prevent people from entering the heavily contaminated territory. The area adjoining the site of the disaster was divided into 4 concentric zones, amongst them the fourth (actually the nearest, within a radius of 30 km/19 mi) being the most dangerous.

In the years following the Chernobyl accident, the Soviet Union established a series of highly classified, experimental research stations within The Zone. This provided the Soviet and later the Ukranian military valuable experience protecting personnel operating within a highly contaminated landscape. For the scientists, The Zone provided a vast area of utter seclusion for advanced, theoretical research far from prying eyes. No one knows what triggered the second incident, but the results were far more startling.

On April 13, 2006, 04:13 a.m., the area around Chernobyl was lit by a blinding light, painting the area with a red glow – and sending out a rolling, roaring emission of noise and energy that ended all communication with the research stations. The Ukranian government ordered an immediate quarantine of the area, the military shooting any violators on sight. 24/7 patrols of the perimeter became necessary. Something had changed inside The Zone.. something that had to do with the fundamental structure of time-space itself. Strange entities were reported by patrols, things that could not be accounted for simply by the effects of radiation on animal and human DNA. Pockets were discovered where physics behaved in strange and dangerous ways. These “anomalies” as they were called seemed to spawn strange artifacts. Items of unknown origin, with powers inexplicable to science and barely understood.

The Zone is a unique airsoft experience drawn from the STALKER videogame series, and loosely on the Russian film of the same name. Set in the contaminated wastelands of the Chernobyl Zone of Alienation, Ukrainian troops, paramilitary factions and lone stalkers fight to control or reveal the secrets of The Zone. Some follow orders of the government, with little knowledge or understanding of what they are guarding, others seek fortune through scavenging scraps of classified technology and strange, unearthly artifacts. The Zone is a grim and deadly place, full of radioactive pockets, unexplained anomalies, mutated horrors and ruthless killers. But it is said that within a man can find treasure beyond his wildest dreams…
