Just popping in

Just wanted to say thanks to this community, as it taught me valuable lessons. It's been 10 years since I first set foot on the field, and it's been a few years since I last played with you all. I made a hell of a lot of friends, met a ton of people, and grew up with a lot of you.

Hope to sling plastic with you guys once again when I'm not working 7 days a week.

Much love, nerds.

Red

REEEEEED! Long time, man! How's life been treating ya? Are you still in touch with Phil and the other bros?

Same here, I've been out of the game for a few years now. I can't believe how interest in milsim and Airsoft in general seems to have fallen off the map from the heyday of the 2005 - 2011 era. Such amazing times back then! It was so huge. A time when milsim was treated much more seriously, but still a lot of fun.

Have things changed alot since then? I don't even know what airsofters are into these days, if milsim teams even exist anymore, or what folks are running these days in terms of guns/gear. I know some local airsoft shops had to close because of the big online retailers consolidated and ate up all the competition, along with a bad economy putting a hurt on airsofters' free cash.

I am happy to still see this site up and running though. AO is still one of the best Airsoft sites around in terms of legacy information. FB totally sucks for collecting info. I've noticed that the Reddit airsoft page is starting to get some traffic. I dunno... perhaps interest will come back strong here one day, who knows?

My life had been crazy busy a few years ago, went through a bad divorce, changed jobs, etc. But things are starting to get better now. I've been having that itch again to go out to a few games, perhaps in the fall sometime or early next year.

Btw, I have a theory of what the whole "Airsoft phenomenon" era in the U.S. was really all about and how/why it came to be, why it went viral, and why it started to wane. Perhaps a longer blog post for another time.
