    Well, I'm fascinated with pistols. I have one AEG and so many pistols I don't know what to do with them anymore. I got my first airsoft gun about six years ago, but got more into the sport of it about three years ago, mainly for it's realism and tactical aspects. That's about it for now..
  1. Hi guys! It's been a very long time since I've been active in the airsoft scene. What's new and exciting, how have things changed? If you were to tell someone who hasn't touched an airsoft gun in 6 years about your favorite new product, what would it be?

    How did you guys start airsofting?

    I was always interested in guns and shooting sports and ended up with my first Airsoft gun while at a local gun show with my friend and his dad. We were probably about 12-13. It was an HFC Glock 33 clone springer, and I still have it to this day buried in a drawer somewhere, and yes it still works. Cheap springers were made a bit better back then. I believe I came across ASF and other forums while looking for reviews on another pistol years later. I never did get real deep into playing Airsoft, but mostly spent my time building custom pistols for myself and others. Yes, an OG "chairsofter" here. Airsoft games were few and far between back then, mostly just consisted of friends playing in the woods somewhere. Back then, you couldn't just go to the nearest AS field (because there weren't any) and Paintball parks didn't allow it. Playing in backyards was a great way to get the cops called on you, so most of us just didn't do it. I practiced a lot of IDPA and IPSC drills with Airsoft guns and spent far too much money building Airsoft guns that most of the time cost more than it's real steel counterpart (I had more than a few pistols with $1500+ price tags, only to turn around and sell them for half in order to fund a new project) - but it was a fun hobby and at the time I was too young to buy my own RS guns (parents were not gun people) so Airsoft was a way that I could still shoot. When I turned 18 I started buying my own real steel guns and faded out of the Airsoft world pretty fast. I finished up a couple customer builds that I had going and moved full force into my "new" hobby, which was basically the exact same thing just with real guns. I stuck around the forums for a while because I had a lot of friends in the AS community and I enjoyed the social side of being a forum member. Slowly but surely most of those people have moved on or otherwise disappeared, so I check in less and less often. I can still be found lurking on Calguns and other various RS forums pretty much every day.

    What was Airsoft like 5-10 years ago?

    This thread makes me feel old =[
  4. I've always liked the idea of YCD and would be happy to help get it going again, but as was the issue before, I don't really know how to bring members over there. That is something that could be discussed later on. I'd be more than happy to help out with it. I don't have as much free time as I used to, so realistically, I couldn't commit to more than one or two at a time.
  5. Hey all. I'd like to apologize for the ridiculously long wait for Elite member status. For some of you, it was months and for that, I sincerely apologize. I've gotten everyone up to date with the very much appreciated help of Airborne101. He is the one who really made this happen, so be sure to give him a big thanks next time you run into him :) For those of you who were denied access, you can always reapply when you meet the criteria for acceptance into this member group. The requirements for Elite member status are pinned in this forum. If you were denied for not meeting the post count requirement, please understand that this requirement serves many purposes and is not to be bypassed by simply rank posting X number of times until you reach 100. We screen your previous posts before making a decision on your application and if we find nothing but rank posting, you will not only receive an immediate denial on your application, but you will likely incur one or multiple warnings which can completely disqualify you from future Elite member status. To sum it up: just don't do it. Thank you all for being patient and I will do my best to keep things updated in here as new requests come in.
