Another airsoft picture

For those of you who don't know, I play airsoft...a lot. I've invested quite a lot of money in gear and weapons.

If you don't know what airsoft is, click the link provided above

Me with my M249 SAW at an airsoft event on June 3rd of 2006.

It was a Vietnam-style game, since the event was called OP:Hastings. (All large airsoft games are called Operation:, or OP:,[codeNAME]. A lot of the codenames used are ones for real operations during American wars.

    haha.. I've seriously always wanted to play airsoft. Some of my guy friend's do it. I'd probably chicken out though because getting shot sounds a little painful.. lol

    Anyways, you are very cute

    Coming from The Great Mandy herself, I'm honored. :dance:

    I think I see somebody's nose growing though. :dance::dance:

    You should definately try airsoft, it's a LOT of fun. I play indoors (aka CQB, as in Close Quarter Battle) mostly, but I won't turn down an outdoor game, as you can see from this picture.

    But you should go and play with some of your guy friends. Ask them if they go to any fields, and ask when the best day for beginners to go. That way you don't go on a day that is usually frequented by vets (at the indoor field I go to weekly, that day is Friday, and Sundays are the days when beginners usually go).

    It's a great workout, since you're constantly running around, and it's such an adrenaline rush (for me, anyway, haha).

    Don't be afraid though!

    If your guy friends play outdoors, don't get worried about it hurting. Although the FPS (feet-per-second) limits are higher (probably 400 for AEGs and 500 for snipers), many outdoor games have minimum engagement distances and even if you're shot from that distance, chances are that it'll hit your clothing instead of open skin, in which case you'll just feel the thud, not the pain. If it does hit open skin while outdoors, you'll obviously feel it, but it won't sting.

    However, indoors is different. Everything is very close quarters, and like outdoor games, there are FPS limits, although they are much less (300 - 330 is the norm for indoors). Because they're not outside (if it's the summer), they tend to wear long sleeves and have everything covered. Even then, depending on where it hits, a close spray will hurt, I won't lie about that. Obvious places are places that won't hurt as much are padded places like chest if you're wearing a vest.

    I tend to get hit on the fingers, arms, and thighs a LOT, for some reason. I also wear a paintball neck protector because I bit of a longer neck than most people. =/

    Anyway, like I said, if you want to do something, do it! =) Don't be afraid to do it just because it hurts. Plenty of girls play at the indoor field I go to. Find out from your friends what day is usually the most beginner-friendly, and ask them to go with you on that day. That way, you'll feel comfortable having your friends there, and knowing that some Rambo-wannabe vet isn't going to come running at you. :dance:

    By the way, my m249 SAW (pictured) is amazing. It makes the children cry for mommy. :|

    I'll post a picture of it in all its glory.

    whoa cool. I've always liked this kind of stuff. I haven't played airsoft or paintball, but I have done lasic (aka laser) tag, and the rush is pretty fun. One of the best feelings in the world. When I was 10 or 11 my Dad and my best friend my Dad's friend and wife and his son (around my age) and daughter plus some others I think went to this place in VA beach. It was a pretty big ass place, if you've ever been there, idk. They had all this shit inside and dark music playing and dark (obviously). Plus they had several levels and a big sniping point. I think you get like 20 min per session, short anyway :|. No pain which might be a plus but your damn gun stops everytime you get pwnt. I think at the end me and my Dad tried to seize the sniping point, against like 9 other people...

    oooh nostalgia. I want to do it again someday but that isn't going to happen anytimes soon. Maybe I'll look into airsoft since I think some of my friends play it, while some others play paintball.

    cool gear and shit though.
