  1. seriously, it required two threads??? http://www.airsoftforum.com/board/Rename-A...IM-t164242.html
  2. You guys realize your trying to argue with a kid that is like 11 years old or so right? He posted the same crap thread on the Virginia Airsoft Force forums and got flamed royally.
  3. Nice work! The third one down looks like a scene from "Tears of the Sun"!
  4. Remember guys, this is an "in the field" game! Bring a portable lunch or you'll miss game time running back to the staging area to eat! Bring your own water, but I will have water available for free if needed! The Lynchburg Sheriff's Office and Lynchburg Project Lifesaver just donated two cases of bottled water for the game! See you guys Saturday!
  5. There are several teams in the Salem/Roanoke area. However for reasons I can't fathom, no one seems to want to organize anything. Over on the Virginia Airsoft Force forums, I have a sub forum set up for Va SouthWest Arisoft Teams (VaSWAT), though no ones seems to use it... BedSOG is also in Bedford, VA, less than an hour from you. PM/Email me and I'll get you our game times/dates!
  6. Yes, that's not a problem I would like a fairly accurate count of how many you have attending as it aids with teams! The Facebook Page has been updated! Check it out, as it has a discussion section titled OC 3 Aids. Read the things in there as they will assist you in the game!
  7. I asked my attorney (I keep one on retainer for odd situations) a year or two ago. According the the Framme Law Firm, at least in VA, it's not illegal for a felon to own an airsoft replica because it has never been and does not expel a projectile by the "use of explosive powders". They said it sits firmly in the realm of a "toy". So rock on my friend, but double check for your state.

The player must ensure to display the dead rag, may not return fire, and may not move towards the single Medic __________________ OC3 Facebook Page
  9. What's your point man looking at in the last picture?
  10. In RS it's called the Forward Assist. It does nothing in airsoft, though a few models do use it to decompress the springs...
  11. The question isn't "What is happening to ASF?" The question should be "What am I, as an ASF member doing to forward the ASF forums?"! We should all ask ourselves, before we post a reply or a thread, am I helping, hindering, or just rank posting???
  12. Yes I did! And his powerful handshake transferred some of his awesomeness into me! Two hours later as I went up my deck steps, they collapsed under neath me! I blame Chuck Norris...

  14. That's Psalm 144:1. It's actually titled as the Warriors Psalm... The whole thing... Psalm 144 1Blessed be the LORD my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: 2My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me. (This is another one he uttered) 3LORD, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him! 4Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away. 5Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke. 6Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them. 7Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children; 8Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood. 9I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee. 10It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword. 11Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood: 12That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace: 13That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets: 14That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets. 15Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD. And some of Jackson's other pre shooting quotes Psalm 22:19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me. Psalm 25:2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
  15. You sir, have smacked the correct!
  16. Keeping in mind that the orange tip does nothing to convince LEO's that it's not a real firearm, and those that are uneducated in the use of firearms won't notice the difference anyway... Which kind of replica is it for?
  17. It's the OE/Condor vest. I've had two of them. Both served well for airsoft purposes.
  18. When I was looking to lighten my loadout, I went to this... http://www.optactical.com/noname34.html Now it's not only my airsoft rig, but I carry one in my Active Shooter go bag at work as well.
  19. You may consider using semi only in your city if you've got concerns about the safety of your engagements. By the by, I caught your video on you tube, the one you posted on the VAF forum. The city looks sweet, but you've GOT to get the camera guy some training! He whips the camera back and forth so fast in the beginning its almost nauseating! Again, the city looks killer, and well built.
  20. You should be, as state above, where someone walking or driving down the road can't see you. If they can, it's a situation waiting to happen... If you're away from public view, where you either own or have written permission to play, have the proper safety gear, and again are away from public view, you'll be good.
  21. Taken from an article on airsoft history written and posted right here on AirsoftForum.com... http://www.brassairsoft.com/about-airsoft/ Basically it states that airsoft was designed in Japan, and attempted to market here in the US with little results...
  22. I'm not sure who does TM's wholesales, if it isn't TM themselves. For Classic Army and some other things, Spartan Imports is who we go to here in the USA. I'm not sure if you'd use them there in Ireland or not though. Good luck!
