    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    AirSoft: Or how I learned to stop doing, and start LARPing

    So recently a few buddies and I took up Airsoft as a hobby. After getting tired of smashing my loud, impatient, lazy friends, I want to go bigger.

    Well, kind of.

    I found tons of groups in my area, filled with all the cocky, "experienced" LARPers, and I want in.

    Anyone familiar with this ****? Any suggestions on gear? I want an electric, both main and sidearm, and a spring sniper. The main and sidearm need to have under 350 FPS. What type of "gear" should I get? Any places to get cheap camo? I'm not using my uniforms for this ****. (because I'm not gonna tear them up, or get in trouble)

    Suggestions? Thoughts?

    Are you fantasizing about your job while you're on leave? Go get drunk and make bad decisions or something, jeez.

    Do they really do fire team rushes in airsoft matches?

    Your in Detroit..why don't you just join a gang and teach them CQB and small unit tactics like the Army guys from Ft. Hood do?

    I prefer paintballing to airsoft. It's a lot easier to "rhino hide" in airsoft then it is in paintballing...although airsoft is cheaper. This link should lead you to equipment for both though.

    My advice? Don't waste your money.

    A decent functional airsoft costs as much as it's "real steel" semi auto counterparts. Expect to pay upwards of $300 at least for a machine that doesn't jam constantly. Also, at a limit of 350fps, don't expect your sniper to be accurate beyond @ 25 feet.

    Oh, and unlike real life, concealment and cover are the same thing. Yes, you can hide behind a shrub and it will act as cover against airsoft.

    If you like running around in the woods, and playing with your weapons platform of choice enough to spend the money, then go for it! But if you want some sort of "realism" from your larping experience, well, I don't know what to tell you.

    Also, the airsoft kids I've met tend to be REALLY ANOYING. The things they don;t know about firearms could fill volumes, but don;t tell them that. They are 1337 0p3r470r2 don't you know?

    And one more thing...



    Yeah. You know what I mean?
