The Joy's of switching to Airsoft

Posted 08-13-2009 at 01:00 AM by Nihilism
So, I'm part of a large group of people that play this game called Dagorhir. Basically it is a midevil based, live action combat game. Or, if you wanna put it in geek, we beat each other up with foam swords. The group that I run in this game is strictly there for the sport aspects of the game. While everyone else around us is dressed like characters from a Tolkien book, we are the guys that want to wear jerseys and find sponsors. For us it's all about the joy of unit tactics and competition. However, many of us have been dissatisfied with allot of aspects of "foam fighting" in general. In enter airsoft.

So my friend Sean has been talking about airsoft for a couple of years now but none of us had paid too much attention to him because who can afford 2 time consuming hobbies? Apparently we can(I'm lying). So, a couple of months ago I'm playing around with Seans' guns listening to him talk about how tactical and mature that Airsoft is, and how he really wants to start a team in our area. By this point, myself and several others were hooked.

So, I do some reasearch into what type of gun I want, trek down to airsoftsmith, and buy the best version of it I can. Since my career as a male prositute(strip club DJ) and photographer has been good to me, I wasn't too concerned about dropping like a grand on my initial investment. What I did not consider is that I was on of two of the 15 of us that had a job that actually produced good amounts of money.

So, here I am with this bad *** gun, sean with his 4 guns, and an itching to shoot it at something other than a foam target. So I wrote up a post on my groups forums and set forth motivating everyone to scrounge up the money for a starter gun. Also, to really get everyone hooked I talked to a guy in the local park system and got permission for some airsoft in the back woods. So, with the date that I would fire my gun at someone for the first time firmly set, I excitedly started trying to get everyone set up.

My glorious day in the sun had arrived. We all met up and drove to the spot for our game. 3 of us actually had camo that day while the rest of the group was a rag-tag collection of mismatched protective clothing. My own outfit consisted of a full set of woodland BDU's, goggles, a shemigh(spelling?), a tactical vest, and of course my gloves. Between us, we had several high quality guns and about a billion Wal-Mart single cock action guns that people bought just to try it out for the day. To any veteran we truly must have looked like some 5th world militia. We split the good guns up between the two teams we created and set out to create our first scenario.

We had a few issues getting sights set in on our team so while we did that the other team went off into the woods. Shortly after they radioed us telling them to come find them. By default, my first game had become an ambush scenario. Here I am, awkwardly moving forward with my team down a path through the woods looking for the bad guys still to uncertain to really utilize any kind of tactical movement or advance. Suddenly, I hear a rustle in the brush ahead of me and begin to raise my hand to call a halt. It's then that my face realizes that the rustle coming from the brush is a full auto spray of BB's. My introduction to airsoft scenarios was provided by a BB to the lip. Needless to say, my team was wiped out and I was hooked.

From there, we reversed the scenario. Much to my satisfaction, revenge is indeed sweet as my hiding place was good enough to kill a majority of the other team without being discovered. Realizing we wanted a more even playing field we switched the scenarios up and played for the rest of the day.

So now, my ragtag band of natives, as I'm calling them, are all hooked with not nearly enough money to get a proper set-up. This means that it is going to be like a year before everything to do with the team is truly rolling. However, there is an old burned down flea market in Alliance, on a huge piece of property. It's got burned out stone buildings, woods, and fields. The best part is that the owner seems very receptive to us playing there.(I find out tomorrow) This means that we could have a pretty amazing place to play, that could not only be for us, but other players in the area.

I think I just need to get my people out on street corners to earn the money for guns.

    Alliance isn't far from the Youngstown area where Battlefront Paintball is located. Battlefront allows airsoft players to player there however paintballers have priority unless the day is reserved for airsoft. If you want to get out into the community and meet some more players from your area you should keep an eye on the calendar and head out for an open play at Battlefront. There is one coming up on the 23rd. And don't be scared of veteran players. If anything, be kind to them and learn from them. They were in the same spot as you at one point.

    I'll actually be out at Battlefront next weekend, it's my birthday, and it's a sunday which means I can actually make it.

    I want to go to the ruins so bad but I work every Saturday. Right now I'm working on getting a back up DJ so I can take a couple Saturdays off a month.

    Hey man, I am a member of the Ruins Raiders, and if Sunday is better for you, I'm sure we can organize some of our local boys to do a smaller match so you can get down to the Ruins and play. Shouldn't be a problem at all, we've been considering doing it anyway. Shoot me a PM if you're interested bro, and welcome to the glory that is Airsoft

    They Replaces the Bollies I did have with a new lens. But, I went out this past sunday and they did the same thing. So, I order a pair of ESS turbofan strikers that should be here by friday. So no more fogging or anti-fog coating peeling off.
