I've been on a nostalgia kick this week. First, I rediscovered Arnie's and all the quality information therein. Now I'm back here after somehow successfully guessing my password.
I joined this forum nearly 15 years ago. Since then, I finished high school, enlisted, went to Iraq, came back, went to college, got an engineering degree, and now am working full time. No wife and kids to compete for my time, so I find myself playing at Ballahack Airsoft (in Virginia) every weekend, just as I have for the past 10 years.
It's funny. I'm not a very nostalgic person, but I sometimes pine for the simple days. Back before impressions dictated all my equipment purchases and owning a machine gun was a pipe dream. Back when the "ultimate in firepower" was a KWA Mac 11 with a spare mag.
I wish forums would make a comeback. Facebook sucks for finding old, useful information.
