  1. Life has slowed down my airsoft gaming in the last year.  I grew tired of producing Ops, something I have done for the last ten years.  Mostly due to the changing player base.  Players didn't want tactical game play anymore, they want speedball.  I don't produce those kinds of games.  Plus my school is growing and I needed to be there more.  Add a firearms instruction side business, wife, two special needs kids, and a bad hip and it slowed me down a lot.  But I had the hip replacement surgery done in February and am getting back into promoting small, local games.  Hopefully the forums can do the same and come back as well!


  2. I am no expert, and I don't play in a snipers role, however, when I am trying to sight in an airsoft replica, I initially set the hop up so that I have it going in as straight a line as possible, for as far as possible. Once I have that done, then I worry about getting the scope, red dot, whatever on target. I always try and get my replica's sighted in at as far of a distance as I can get them to.


  3. I try to stay close to the edges. That means I only have three sides to worry about. Granted, it cuts off one avenue of escape, but I find the benefit of not having to watch one side outweighs that.

     

    And slow down. Most of what catches the human eye is the fast, jerky movement of someone going to fast. Just like the tortoise, slow and steady wins the race...


  4. I do NOT carry either my duty or off duty weapon onto the airsoft field I make it a point to have another team member check my airsoft pistol replica as I carry the same model for duty. This ensures that I don't forget to switch them out, and that those playing with me are sure that I didn't forget either. Carrying a real firearm onto the field is dangerous and just not smart. I would stay away.


  5. Welcome to the Forums!!

     

    I am just down the road from you in the Lynchburg/Bedford area and have team mates in your area that can help get you going if you wish.

     

    We are having free pickup games on Feb 18. I will send you the FB page link when I get off shift.

     

    Another field you should try is Augusta Airsoft LLC. Bo runs an excellent field with a great community of players, and being in Stuarts Draft he is only a tad bit over an hour from you.

     

    Hope to meet you soon!


  6. I learned all of the above in SWAT school many, many years ago. I perform about 250 house clearings per year as part of my duties. I have moved to a Limited Penetration entry instead of the flood. One of the main reasons is that it is usually only 2 of us, and many times I am clearing at least part of the house alone.

     

    It is more "slicing the pie" and clearing the room from the hallway than running headlong into the aforementioned (Shawn1Actual) bad guy hosing the door way.
