Hello TFF! :)

I have been playing airsoft for over a year now, and I was wondering if anyone had played before, or is an avid player. I would love to explain my gear, and discuss different playing techniques. :)

It is essentially a gun designed to shoot small, 6mm plastic spheres, or bb’s. This is a really fun way to play with friends, and to step it up a notch from nerf guns. I will post pictures in a bit. ;)

You bunch of pussies, we use to shoot each other with sling shots and cape lilac berries. We could put holes in glass windows from 40 yards away and they left big red welts when they hit you. The only rule we had was no head shots.

Pussies ? When I was a lad we fought each other with BB guns. No rules. You were on your own. It only ended when some kid started crying and then we pounded him for being a wuss. "wuss" part wimp, part puss, "wuss". Can't take credit for that wuss business. I stole that from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Thank you Damone.

It does hurt, but it’s a lot better than getting shot by a real gun! Many good airsoft players go into the Army, because of the great practice they have. A really good youtuber name “Novritsch” used to be in the Austria Sniper Army, but fell out after a year. He is a great airsoft sniper, and even has his own website, check it out! :)

They are super good, I’m a geek when it comes to airsoft, lol. :)

When I was a yute, kids here used to use acorns.

Ok, so kind of late for the pictures, but here they are....

This is my custom M83 full auto/semi AEG....

And this is my sidearm, my Walther PPQ, with extra mag and flashlight...

Both shoot around 500-600 FPS, which is pretty good.

This is the ammunition I use. When you get hit, it’s like someone tapping you on the arm. It really doesn’t hurt...

Thanks! Both of my guns used to have those silly orange tips, but I painted over them. ;)

YES!! Whenever I go to an airsoft match, I always have them in a gun case, or in a bag. Either that, or I’ll just get another orange tip, and then change it out at the match. :)
