Battlepriest..... wierd name?...well yes I actually am a priest. Ordained by the Universal Life Church in Modesta CA. Although anyone who wants to can get ordained, legally by the ULC. I have and do actually use my ordination as a priest. I have performed 2 weddings and have been know to be a spiritual guide for some. I also bill myself as the unnoficial Airsoft Combat Chaplain (If you cant have fun with who you are, whats the point in having fun right?)

My team Geeks with Guns so has about 4 active members, myself and my best friend Yod9 being the founders. At our largest, we had 6 active members, but we seem to have trouble finding people to join us, because we arent in a position to play every month, or even every big game of the year in the Chicago area. Our recruiting policy restricts us to team members over the age of 18, if for no other reason than legal responsibility, but also because we simply want to have a team of adults who at least have some life experience. I do admit that I have met some players under the age of 18 who are very very good, and carry themselves quite well.

I am also the owner/administrator of http://www.airsoftspecialists.com , an airsoft product review site. I have several reviews and articles there, so please have a look.

I am also a budding Airsoft Videographer, and have published several videos to date...You can see most of them if you look around our Videos sub-forum in the Airsoft photos and Images section.

Our home field used to be Challenge Park in Joliet IL. http://www.challengepark.com They have recently ceased hosting of airsoft events but they are currently the best venue in the country for paintball and they were that be for airsoft for at least a year.

There are also 2-3 other fields nearby that are privately owned and cost nothing to play on. the CAA (chicago airsoft association) is the organizer of several of them. There are also event hosted by Aggressive Sport Joliet, both monthly Skirmishes and 2 day scenario events at various fields in the Chicago Area. We also have lately the local CAA team Sparrow unit, hosting public games at locations such as Paintball Blitz in Gurnee Illinois. With all these choices, there is a relatively good sized game to go to (20-60 players) at least twice a month in the Chicago area.

I started out in Paintball. From about 1990 to 1999. I played on a store sponsored team in various Amatur paintball tourneys. "The Mercenaries" sponsored by "Duck's Blind Paintball" In Davenport IA. I started out playing indoor CQB at the Ducks Blind indoor field which was true indoor urban combat. It was built into a 3 story hotel/motel/apartment building in downtown Davenport. I have 2 trophies from tournaments played in that indoor field. They eventually got shut down by the city though, cause they didnt like the paintballers hanging out on the sidewalks at the end of the day. I eventually quit playing Paintball due to the rise in popularity of the "speedball" genre and the neon colored guns and gear. I was in it for the tactical and combat simulation and not becuase it was an extreme sport.

Hmm lets see, did I leave anything out?.. Oh yeah, Im a Technician/Engineer working as a Biomechanics Research tech.

Thank you for starting this topic BattlePriest, it is an excellent idea.

This is very interesting to read about you guys. You all have quite a selection of Airsoft gear, and your posts are excellent. By giving some background on your product knowledge and a little history about yourselves, you add a ton of credibility to your posts. I look forward to your future comments on this board.

As for me, I am fairly new at AirSoft Gaming. I have been collecting military gear, assault gear, hi-tech gadgets & real weapons for about 15 years. For security reasons I can't really list any of that here, but my collection could probably outfit a small Platoon. I'm currently a Signal Support Systems Specialist in the Army Reserves and have 3 years left on my contract. That's basically a fancy name for radio guy and network administrator. I've studied NBC (Nuclear, Biological, & Chemical > for newbies), taken Military Intel classes in Surveillance, Counter-Surveillance and Direction Finding.

In August of this year (2003) I will be taking part in a Military Police Reclassification School for a couple weeks which by the way, will leave this board without an admin person for 18 - 20 days unless we can find more help between now and then.

Anyway, I was in a gun shop one day looking for another sub-compact 9 handgun for a CCW (aka concealed carry permit > for newbies) that I was about to get at the time when the guy behind the counter said to me, "excuse me sir - but I am going to fire this in the store so don't be alarmedÖ" He was holding what appeared to be a UZI SMG. I was likeÖ "WHAT THE #<AT>$%"

Before it had time to even register what was about to happen, he squeezed off a few rounds and to my surprise, it was not a real gun though it looked quit real! Well, imagine my excitement when I saw the advantage of being able to fire an SMG indoors! From that moment on, I was at every gun show and all over the Internet to find out as much information as I could on this thing called "Airsoft".

Soon thereafter, I met some guys at a gun show who happened to live not too far from me who were actual Airsoft dealers and would import these into the United States. For the next few months, I became one of their sub contractors to help them sell guns to stores.

I played a few Airsoft events and learned quite a bit about this hobby. Needless to say, but I was hooked. Being a dealer afforded me the opportunity to handle and learn quite a bit about many of the brands, makes and models, though I did not start this board to sell products from.

This board was created to bring together people from all over the world such as yourselves, who share this same love for one of the coolest military simulated training aides, (or what ever you like to call it) - that I have ever seen

Hello everyone,

Nice web site, Battle Priest! Well done! You are very serious. We, down here in Indonesia are no longer enjoying paintball games like that anymore. Most professional paintball player are only interested in extreme sport style game with sup air balls, and they avoid battle simulation games.

Let me introduce myself, I am a video editor to an IT company in Indonesia. I am also a military enthusiast who enjoys airsoft skirmish games, military history, collecting military uniforms, and re-enactment activities.

My gear up to now is a TM H&K MP5 A5 with a surefire handguard, red dot sight, and laser sight without any upgrade to the spring an neither the battery.

My other guns are a Maruzen MP5K, Kuan Ju Works P8, KJW USP, TM Luger (air cocking) and many other springers from XM-177 air-cocking replicas to side arms air-cocking plastic replicas. The brand may vary from KWC, UHC, etc.

I once owned a TM H&K G3/SG1 previously and I wrote a review for the replica in my personal website at http://ony.airsoftla...yo_marui_g3.htm

Unfortunately the review was written in Bahasa Indonesia, but I believe you can enjoy the pictures as I put many walk-around pictures of my previous TM H&K G3/SG1. I also put Carl Zeiss Diavari DA riflescope diagram that is commonly used by real G3/SG1 or MSG-90.

I also owned a TM H&K MP5A4 and TM H&K MC51 as well, but for some reason due to my father's illness at the hospital last year, I had to sell them. Both of them were never used by myself for airsoft skirmish, actualy...

I am glad to find this airsoft forum as I believe that I will have new friends who are willing to share their experiences in playing airsoft guns

An introduction huh? Alright, here goes :-D

I'm a 22 year old student at the Art Institute of Philadelphia. I currently have an associates degree in Graphic Design, and am working towards a BA in Animation. I am originally from Vermont, though my family moved around a lot when I was younger.

I have been a paintball player since my senior year in high school. I currently use a Tippman 98 with a flatline barrel. I have considered adding the new reactive trigger to the gun, but I would have to send it back to the factory (I bought it right when it came out). I have never played Airsoft, but since I love paintball, I'm sure I'll love airsoft as well, even though I'm sure there are huge differences in how the two games are played.

The main things that have kept me from buying airsoft equipment are lack of money, and not knowing where in my area airsoft can be played. Thus far I have not been able to convince my fellow paintballers to get into airsoft, though one of my friends does like the idea of having pistol matches with airsoft. Maybe if we ever get around to that I'll be able to get them into it more. Any advice that anyone can offer about anything airsoft would be much appreciated

I chose this name because I got shot at with a paintball marker in the leg at pointblank, it really stung like a bee and broke the skin, never played paintball so my friend did the shooting, I chose airsoft over paintball because you can't freaking aim paintballs since there are no sights, there is an ugly feeder attached to the upper receiver, the painballs are sensitive to temperature, they can't shoot far because the ball might explode in the barrel, and you got too many problems with the equipment in that game.

Anyway, I am born in Taipei, Taiwan, moved to Hong Kong then immigrated to Coquitlam BC, Canada when I was 2 years old where I still live† :) . I am very new to airsoft, I never even knew such a game even existed, I love to look at real firearms, I know a bunch about them, I also like to fix cars and raise my fitness level. I am 17 yrs old, most of the time I am depressed cuz' my family sucks† :( . I am graduating from high school next year, I hope to get a degree in computer science so I can make a crap load of cash, I am looking for a part time job that suits me, I have no car, but I got a learners license, I do not own any firearms or air guns though I wish I do.† Even Though I think I know alot about firearms, I do not know jack pain.gif about airsoft stuff, I am sooooo new that nobody can stand me!† blink.gif† :angry:†  lol.gif

Greetings:

I suppose I'll add my own into this. I'm Dughal, and I've been playing airsoft since 1987 when I learned about them while I was living in Japan. I had been collecting model guns for a few years before that, and shooting at the range with my parents since I was 9, so I was familiar with firearms from very early on. I joined the Marines in 1986, and was sent to Okinawa for two years in 1987. While wandering through the hobby shops, I saw the same model guns that I was used to collecting, but they also had some that actually fired a projectile, and I was immediately hooked. We werent supposed to have them in the barracks, but we did anyways, and used to play just about anywhere we could get away with it, including the halls of the barracks. Since we weren't allowed to ship them with our equipment back to the US, I sold them off. Once back in the US starting finding places that I could get them here.

I have been actively playing since 1987, and have seen the guns go through many changes. Most of the early ones were NBB pistols, or rifles that required external gas. Once the AEG's were mainstreamed, I got into those as quick as I could get my hands on them. I've played with many teams, of all age groups, in most every scenario and terrain, and will continue to do so for quite some time.

At this time, I have the most guns that I have ever had at one time: 16 guns (not counting spring pistols) with 8 AEGs, 7 GBBs, and one spring rifle. This number fluctuates, as I am often buying and selling them, but I seem to have a few too many right now. My girlfriend tolerates this, as she knows it's one of the hobbies that I truly enjoy. By sheer neccessity, I've had to learn how to maintain, repair, and upgrade just about every type / brand of gun out there, to the point that I often have custom parts machined out for me.

I'm 35, live in North Carolina, and served 6 years in the USMC working on / flying in C-130 in-flight refuellers.

Well.. that's it in a nutshell, I suppose.

Well, my alias here in this forum is of course Razor8 nothing significant about it jus that I thought razor was a cool name :P . I would say im jus now getting into AIRsoft. jus like most male kids im guessing, I had an interest with weapons and things that are risky and violent a a sense but cuz of my parents :( . I never got to have anything that shoots or in that case anything that can hurt me plasma.gif .

I prefer to claim myself as "Ghost Stalker" in the field† B) . I mostly use it on video games but I like it and would make it a nick name for myself.

Hopefully in the near future I will be playing on the field and probably going to those fields more populated with veteran Airsoft players in the midwest.

Cant wait to get my hands on my first Airsoft gun. I think a modified P90 will do good for a beginner, right BP? :D
Umm..thas bout it I think

Guess I'm the late comer to this topic. Oh well, here goes anyways:

My call sign on the board is pain.gif Watson, though my real name is Clay. The call sign has a story behind it that would not be funny to anyone who didn't know my former boss, sorry. I live in Atlanta GA, and go to Georgia Tech. I am a 2nd year. Currently, one of my fraternity brothers has started an airsoft club at Tech, and we are desperately trying to get funding from different people, including the school.

As for my experiences with airsoft and related items....
I grew up in the city, but every weekend for half the year, my father would take me out to backwoods Georgia where we would go hunting together. He taught me many important things, like basic survival skills, tracking skills, and proper gun safety. When I was in high school, I picked up on paintball, playing mil-sim games with a WIDE range of guys near our school. We took over a good 200 acres of undeveloped land for about a year, building bunkers, forts and playing hardcore games including many over-night games. However, after a while many people started drifitng towards the more "extreme" speedballing and things of that nature. This lost all of it's luster for me. I still have a Spyder Shutter, and play everyonce in a while when I can find a group of guys who want to play in the woods. do not get me wrong, I really have no problem with "extreme" paintballing, it's just not for me.
About two summers ago, one of my friends showed me a USP. It looked rather real, and I was shocked when he told me it shot plastic BB's. I was wuickly hooked and went out and got my own crappy USP springer. Many of the guys in the neighborhood did the same, and soon we were plastering our backyards with BB's. It then escalated from there, when the first guy got a GBB. Then came the AEG's. I had to go to college though, so I clung to my USP. When I found the GTAirsoft club formed by my fraternity brother, I went out and bought an MK-1 Gas sniper rifle. However I am currently trying to sell that, and replace it with something from the G3 series, preferably a G3Aa4.

So there is my brief background in airsoft and otehr events. As for me personally, I am a second year International Affairs major. plan on doing either coorporate networking, or diplomatic relations. I am focusing on Japan, about to start learning the language, and have been takling culture and govt. classes.

Anything else ya want to know, just ask...
Later,
Clay

My callsign is ardrummer292 (hmmm... imagine that!) because my initials are "ar" and I'm a drummer. The "292" is my piece of flair, I guess. I just don't like talking about my flair. (Office Space, anyone?)

... Right. On with the introduction.

I've been into airsoft for a little over a year now. I got hooked back in May 2004, when one of my buddies mentioned that he was getting a submachine gun. Being a true gun idiot at that time, I asked, "Ya mean like a Glock, or an AK47, or a sniper rifle?" He commenced to beat me in the face for my utterly ignorant comment, then thoroughly described his beloved KWA Mac11. Needless to say, I was intrigued. He invited me to a game at his buddy's house over the weekend; I accepted his invitation. My life hasn't been the same since. We played a gas pistols-only game of capture the flag, where you got shot until you couldn't take the pain any more and dropped the flag. I LOVED IT! First thing I got home, I scoured Shorty USA, Airsoft Atlanta, and JungleToy for a potential first gun.

The rest is history. Live and learn, buy used and pay dearly, spend countless hours on this forum asking and answering questions, etc. I've had an excellent experience with the people on this forum and am very grateful for how much they've taught me. All that's left is to finally buy that P^3 M134A2 minigun I've been lusting after for so long!

I can do this...

I've used the alias "Lacessit" for quite some time, begining in the video game world. Taken from the motto Nemo me impune lacessit from the Order of the Thistle, I chose this from the reference in Edgar Allen Poe's story, The Cask of Amontillado.

I've participated in fairly active pass-times for most of my life including: rock-climbing, SCUBA diving, hiking, mountain biking, camping, and hunting. While I was stuck in Cincinnati Ohio, working long hours in a city enviroment, I fell into the world of on-line gaming and a Half-Life modification called Firearms for 6 years. I heard airsoft mentioned in passing by a few players, but felt it was far to cost prohibitive. Then, in early 2004 while visiting my cousin, I was shown his MP5sd5. I was instantly fascinated, and probably drove him nuts asking when he was going out again. Finally, in July we managed to get our schedules synchronized and I borrowed an AEG and went for a scrimmage of 5 vs 5. By the end of that week I was doing research on buying an AEG, joined this forum soon after and have since tried sucking it dry of all information.

My young arsenal has so far included, a TM MP5 RAS, which I sold as it was just not in my play style, to buy a TM G3sg1 (my baby). I also have a TM M9 Tactical Master, and bought another to fix up along with a KSC G18c that needed just a bit of work.

Tinkering has always been fun for me, and working on airsoft replicas fits the bill nicely. Though I'm not by anymeans an airsoft gunsmith yet, I'm currently working to customize my sg1, and continue to expand on my collection.

My name is Jesse, aka TriChrome. I live in New Jersey. I started out going to college for Mechanical Engineering, transferred to a college in Philadelphia where I graduated with a B.S. in Industrial Design (Product Design). I've worked primarily as a Web/Graphic/Package designer, and am also trained in 3d rendering and drafting.

I first got into guns when I was 18 years old when I drove over the state line into Pennsylvania to buy a pellet gun (since you need an actual firearms license in NJ to own a BB/Pellet gun). I don't like real guns, but love the Airsoft guns because I can shoot people with them (with proper eye protection), can use the guns on my secluded backyard property, and ammo is incredibly cheap; plus thereís no noise to scare anybody.

I got into Airsoft because I saw a realistic looking Glock springer at the local Columbus Flea Market, and bought it for $20. Needless to say, it broke in about 3 days, but I had tons of fun in that short period of time. About a year after that I bought a Y&P NBB M9 from Ebay for $40, and that one broke in a couple of weeks. Another year went by, and I was bored one day so I decided to browse the internet and found the website of RedWolfAirsoft which showed me the world of GBB's and AEG's. So in December of 2004 I bought a KSC Glock 18C, dropped around $900 into mags, spare parts, accessories, supplies, etc., then bought a KWA M11A1, TM M9, and a KSC Glock 19. All of them broke. After that I gave up GBB's and bought my first AEG a TM G36C around 6 months ago, and I'll never go back to GBB's.

I now own a stock TM G36C for CQB/backup/loaner gun, a TM Glock 18C AEP as my sidearm, and a 460 FPS G&P SR-16 M4 as my woodland primary. I gear-up in a Blackhawk LBE Harness equipped with Blackhawk and Tactical Tailor pouches.

I play at the Wrightstown Airsoft field in Wrightstown, NJ. I don't belong to any team, nor do I want to. I've gotten my brother and cousin playing with me as well, and we try to play at least 2 games a month. Attendance fluctuates from around 20 people minimum to 45+ at the larger games.

I'm Megan, or 'Megs', slowly wasting away in Bangor, Maine. I'm depped in the Army Reserve as a private and I'll be Fort Jackson-bound on August 24th. Not currently an airsofter but will get into the sport after training. In talking with several folks on another forum who are very much involved with airsofting, I found it was something that I was fairly interested in taking it up.

I did some looking around and almost decided on what I'll get as a starter gun. Good things have been said about TM so I'll go with them for sure. newbie question, I know, but any suggestions on a particular model?

My Reserve unit is based out of Massachussetts (Fort Devens). Anyone here from that area?

Cheers.

I'm Robert. I have been using MooT as my handle for a loooong time (about 2 years). I am 20 years old and always down for an airsoft game. Here is what moot means (Taken from www.dictionary.com):

1. Law. A hypothetical case argued by law students as an exercise.
2. An ancient English meeting, especially a representative meeting of the freemen of a shire.

I have been airsofting for alittle over 8 months now. I own a TM G3 SG1, TM MP5A4 with a light, and a KWA G26c. I am always up for playing a game. I prefer indoor over outdoor but whatever works for me as long as I get to play. I usually prefer to play as an assaulter/support. I am always looking for new places to go (ROAD TRIP! WEEE!). My aim name is MooTOwnZ if anyone cares to tell me about upcoming events in the Illinois, Missouri, or Indiana area. Or if you want to play a game of DOD:S, CS:S, or just talk about life in general.

Hi there

Im a 23 year old guy from Norway who's been into softgunning or airsofting for about half a year or so now. It all started with an impulse buy of a mp5a2 when I had to much money on my hands. I then proceeded to lure some of my friends into it as well.
When Im not doing airsoft Im doing Capoeira (as I am the lead trainer/instructor in the group in my home city), anyhoo I did my 1 year tour of duty in the navy where I got to shoot some real guns, I also had some previous experience when I was younger, as I entered a shooting club (mostly rifles). Im a big fan of action movies and often try and base the mil-sim games around that (and luckily so are my friends, so no worries there).
So far the best game played has been "zombie run", but Im wandering off the topic here. I hope to broaden my understanding of airsoft, both games and guns at this forum.
Play safe and have fun headbang.gif

hello, I'm gh0st RPLEASE DO NOT POST EMAIL ADDRESSES IN YOUR MESSAGES - USE THE PM SYSTEMven, my family has an extensive military history in all branches of the military. I, myself, was in the US Navy; my wife was with the USAF. My MOS was HM0000. Before I got into any airsoft/paintball/replica stuff I was shooting pistols and rifles. I got into paintball first, and I just recently got into airsoft. I've been playing pball for three years. I have the "fish" (XM8) and the 1911. I have the real Springfield 1911, Walther P22, Beretta M9; and the 1911 is my favorite among my pistols. I don't own a HighEnd AEG since it cost almost as much as the real weps. Though I would like to get the M14 since it's my favorite since my Navy days.

Greetings,

ASF has another newbie in the crowd. I've been recently introduced to this addictive hobby by a friend. I'm one of those older members with life stories. I grew up as an Air Force brat and have fond memories of running around the house with my father's combat gear and M16. My brother and I grew up hunting, target shooting, and playing "war", so the discovery of these realistic, fully-automatic bb guns has been a lot of fun.

After a few backwoods skirmishes with cheapo EAGs, my brother and I recently invested in nicer guns. He's getting the TM G3 SAS and I went with the TM MP5J. It's a great excuse for us to hang out together. We're fortunate because he has five acres of woods and a creek to run around.

Thanks for all the great information on this site! Lurking here for the past few months has been a lot of fun.

So I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself, and this seemed like the appropriate forum in which to do so. So hey everybody, I'm live in rural middle TN, which is a great place to play airsoft, wooded hills everywhere. Just getting started, I'm a student of military history, and I like to get into what I study, so airsoft seemed like a natural choice of hobby. Look forward to recieving airsoft wisdom from you guys.

Hey.
Uhm, my name is Chris, I'm 19, and I live in the Southern Oregon area.
I have been airsofting with friends for a few years, starting out with little spring pistols and mini's to eventually our AEG's. We all played on an honor system, and rather causually played whenever possible.
Anyways, I've moved alot in the past couple of years and have lost contact with everyone who played, so I'm just on here to look for friends and ask a few questions.

Hey, airsoftkid100 here to introduce myself.

My screen name is airsoftkid100 (obviously) and my real name is Nick.

I am currently 14 years old and got my first airsoft gun when I was 11, at Christmas. It was a Crosman P22 springer and I am proud to say that it still works today. At first, I was not even aware of the MILSIM games that you use airsoft with, so I just plinked around the neighborhood for a year or so. In November '02, I realized that my friend up the street owned an airsoft gun as well, and he told me of a game where you use these guns like paintball. I arranged a game between me, my friend, my other friends, and my brothers in a large field near my house.

We brought all of our guns (I had added two onto my arsenal and my friends had five) in a few carrying cases and began our game. All I can say is wow. The game was amazing and it was so much fun with every man for himself. We were instantly hooked and began playing regularly. It's all downhill from here.

I now have a five gun arsenal of mainly springers and a few NBBs. I have formed a team now with 4 of my friends, called Team Red Dawn and we have about two games a month from the local neighborhood kids.

Thanks for reading...

The problem is you've bought what manly men refer to as "sissy juice."

Hello Everyone,

My name is Brandon. I'm 17 years of age and I live in the great state of Kentucky. I've been playing airsoft off and on for about a year but just now am getting really involved in it. I've been through 4 years of JROTC, with the last year focusing on Survival training and advanced leadership techniques. I'm currently a Licensed CNA (Certifed Nurse Assistant) and I'm working on my Nursing degree. I live near several major military bases (Ft. Campbell and Ft. Knox), so that means I have enough tactical gear to equip a small third world militia a-laugh.gif . I like this site as it has many things to teach. I hope that I can assist with gear, first aid, and other questions...Thanks alot

hey everyone

My name's Matt, I've been on this forum for a while and I have been playing airsoft for about 2-3 years.

I was the first one with an Airsoft gun out of all my friends. I got a cheap $20 springer at Galyans, and a few of my friends followed, buying cheap airsoft guns. I played a little bit, but the game started to seem stupid in the wake of big, powerful paintball guns, which is quite popular in Indiana.

That is, until one of my friends showed me the "real" airsoft guns, with realistic Tokyo Marui AEGs, full metal sidearms, etc. Thats when I ordered my first gun, a TM M4 right here from the ASF store.

The rest is history. I sold all my paintball stuff and dove right into airsoft. All my friends have bought "good guns" (over $100), and we now play almost every weekend. Paintball was fun, but it cant match Airsoft. I can buy a big bag of BBs for $15, and still afford BDUs and other tactical gear that I need.

Airsoft is fun, and I'm glad to be a part of this forum

Hey, my real name is Craig, but I chose the name Mikhail Kalashnikov because I am amazed at how he began creating the AK-47 in post WWII, and yet it is still in use today. I would have chosen the name of whoever created the Stg. 44 . . . but Poland lost %17 of its population due to Germany. And I am %100 Polish.
Enough about that, I have played airsoft since 2003, and have slowly fallen in love with it. My primary weapon is a TM FAMAS F1 which I've had since early 2005. It has served me very well, and all those nasty rumors about it being the first AEG and how bad it is are very, very false.
Well, that's all I feel like saying for now, so I'm out.

Hey, My name is Eric and I've been "playing" airsoft for at least 2 years now. Me and my friend were first introduced to some small Spring pistols, and since we love guns, we had to get them. After a year of playing in my friends backyard we got bored. It is then, one year later, that I purchased a KWC M9FS gas powered pistol, which is crap, but was great then, and mad the gameplay interesting. Between us, at that point, we had about 5 airsoft guns between us, 3 for him, 2 for me. After I ran out of gas we stopped playing and went on with our lives. Not only until MARCH 06 did I purchase a High Power Classic Army m15a4 and KWA USP OD-GREEN we really get into this sport. The sad thing is I don't even have the rifle yet because of backorder, but when I do get it, I'll have pictures on the forum. Even though we are spending a fortune, we still never went out to a field! We are hoping to soon, so wich us luck!

I'm looking to upgrade my SR16 (the full monty) and its proving to be rather confusing, so I'm looking for some help. I play airsoft with a ragtag group of friends, mostly with AEG's, in backyards, warehouses, farms, what-have-you (legally). I really wish airsoft would grow as a sport, because it's wicked fun!
