I ordered new guns from Aisa and they sent me this

At my age, what the hell am I going to do with this? Now I have to feed it until I get an RA number. I hate when they mispack stuff


Just some random thoughts that have come into my head while mowing the grass today.
Why do you have to mow grass, can't our genius scientists come up with a grass that only grows 4 inches, they breed horses that are only a foot tall.
I believe it's a conspiracy with the people at Toro, the same people that can't build a mower that last more than two seasons.

What is it with red shirts? They never get to last until the end of the show.




Good rule of thumb


I want to give a big shout out ( what the hell is a shout out? My mother used to shout out, she would come out the front door at supper time and scream "TIMMY". You could hear her voice 10 damn blocks away. No one had a cell phone, hell, I never called my friends on the phone, you just went over to their house and knocked. their mom (who was always home) would tell you if they could play or not, I was in the mall last week and thought I heard my phone ringing, I dug around for it then looked over at some 6 year old kid pull his out, What in the hell do you have to talk about on the phone at 6, that you just made a poopy? Wait a minute, where was I..............Oh ya)
to the guys reading from the Snow Storm company in Austin TX, Thanks for reading this crap. 
Here's a hint, if you take our little Thai friend out to a game, watch him close.
He is prone to screaming out his name and running into situations where angels fear to tread.
I am just saying.






After he pulls that move, listen for this





Sounds like something he would do, don't it?
To find out the history of the scream

Why didn't they have a S&W M76 in I am Legend? I thought the movie was crap compared to Omega Man but if they had at least had a 76 or BAR in it, I would watch it again.
If you have not seen Omega Man, watch it, if you have seen it, watch it again,
Chucks movie was so much better than Will's.


Did you ever get ready for a game,
and just can't decide what M4 would be right for that particular game?
I have that problem all the time,
but as you can see above,
I found a way to fix it.



You have to say it with a Scottish accent to get the joke.


I will be going dark for a few days on Pic's as I replace my PC,
have to use the laptop for a while and my stash of images that I have ripped off from around the
World Wide thingy is unavailable. 
But never fear, I will post up some crap that has nothing to do with airsoft in the mean time.
Until then, stay thirsty my friends,

See you tomorrow.

An Idea, to make your Games go faster

YOU WILL OBEY THE MEDS ( minimum engagement distances) 



So, I was in the shower and had an Idea,"how can I make the sign-up and crono go faster and smoother at my local Game".

My thought was to take business size cards, print on them the field name, a number 1-500 and the statement "If lost, replacement card fee $1.00". It's best that they should get laminated also.
(A neck lanyard would be great too, they get all sweaty in the pocket and when you have 20 pockets on your 
"high speed, low drag" gear, you forget what one its in )

When a player signs up on the sheet, he is given the card that matches his sign in number line. He then goes back to the parking lot, piddles around in his trunk, shows off his new Hello Kitty camo, walks around with his new gun on a sling so everyone notices it and then makes his way over to the crono station. Now he waits in line and gets to the crono and hands over his card to the dude that runs the thing. After pulling the trigger 10 times he realizes he forgot his battery, he is given his card back and he heads back to the car. Back in line, gets back up to crono he hands in his card again and forgot his mag. Someone behind him in line loans him a mag and he shoots , (215FPS)  Now because he did turn in his card he gets a Zip tye on his gun that is the color of the weekend for guns under field limits 

If he shot over then a different color would be used and he would be informed of his MEDS.
As you exit the crono station, it would be great if you had a line painted on the grass and  orange poles set at 50 feet, 100 ft and 150ft so that he has a visual grounding on what his MED is if he shot over field limits.

After the big rush, you look for what card numbers have not been turned in yet, match it to the sign in sheet and announce the names of the players and tell them to go to crono.
After all have been thru, then just stand at the insert entrance to the field to make sure all have zip tyes.

This way, you know all have paid, cronoed and most importantly for the field owner, signed a waiver.

I am not PC and sign in 7 was my idea.


Now, if you have been doing this at your field for years then you suck, 
you should have shared it before now and not made me tax my pea brain to come up with this.
shame on you!


I think that's a little hotter than 400 FPS and where do I put the damn zip tye

See you tomorrow

H& Kock of the tech industry?

The new I AK, with proprietary user interface, white paint not added yet, it's a prototype, 
(note to steve, I do not have this at my house)



I like apple to a degree, I have some of their products and they work well.
I do hate the attitude, much like some gun companies we know.

This is funny as all get out though.

 
I need to do a rant vid on all the Airsoft lawsuits
laugh out loud and I will see you tomorrow.

Trade Dress and airsoft, again

If they would hurry up and get here, then all this trade dress stuff would be moot

The rumors are at it again, now it's FN that is going after airsoft.
I know for a fact that H&Kock has filed lawsuits.

I can not find anywhere that Glock has filed lawsuits.
( here, I was wrong, I just found this
http://www.rfcexpress.com/lawsuit.asp?id=48003
It names Glock, H&K and Walther as suing parties.
This one 
Names H&K, Walther and Umarex as Plaintiffs )
I do not see where any of these cases have been settled yet,
Of course I am not a lawyer, your mileage my vary.





I will ask next week if I can get a "factory" statement as to FN's stance on this issue.

I understand why this is happening, but have stated my reasons before as to why it could be a mistake for manufactures.


Too many people take "what they heard from a rep" or something that was mentioned from someone who "knows a guy" to be fact.
It's like asking a street cop about guns, just because he carries one he is more than likely not an "expert"

I myself am far from an expert on anything, except being old, but I do have the benefit from knowing people that can sometimes get me the straight scoop. Now, will they want to go "on record" or not, I don't know. But let's give it a shot.

Until then, stay thirsty my friends
(This message brought to you by the most uninteresting man in the world)

That is the last time I listen to those guys on the forum as to what uniform color to wear to the game!

It's not Monday, but , what the heck

I know, I know, but we even need to laugh on Tuesday too.

Being an old man, I remember when this came out, I bought it on a cassette tape  (see below),
(look up what this was on your fancy winky thing) and played it to death.
Yes I am a Weird Al fan, Dr Demento and the like.




See you tomorrow.

Just found this new event, I am stoked

WOW


Just found out about this, I have been a fan of the Moundsville prison for years now. 
They put on the Mock Riot each year for the corrections community,I have shot many an airsoft BB's there,
( http://mockprisonriot.org/mpr/index.aspx) and it is a awesome facility.
I have had the opportunity to attend the Riot the past 4 years and have wanted to put on an airsoft game there myself.
I did not have the funds to do it right, 
so I am very happy to see someone better than I has stepped up to the plate.

Exhibit hall at Moundsville
I hope to get some info next week to share with you on this event, but for now, mark your calenders for what looks like a hell of a time.
The Wagon Gate, they used to hang prisoners from a trapdoor inside this building, very creepy
That's my old truck,This pic was taken in 2005, that razor wire looks mean!




I will keep you updated as I hear anything.

It's Monday, you know what that means,

 If "Bamby" the clown was a little late for the party, here's why.




It means another glorious week of fun, sun and AIRSOFT!
Don't you hate cheerful people, especially on Monday?


Time for a laugh, God, I could use one,

When you are down in the  dumps  and  think you have real problems,   just    remember:
SOMEWHERE    IN THIS WORLD,
THERE  IS A  POOR GUY  NAMED MR.     
PELOSI...

For you that are married ( I am sorry), here's one for you,

INSTALLING A HUSBAND

A
woman writes to the IT Technical support Guy


Dear Technical Support,

Last year I upgraded from
Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and I noticed a distinct slowdown in the overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelery applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In
addition,
Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, 
such as
Romance 9.5
and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as NEWS 5.0, MONEY 3.0 and Football 4.1.

Conversation 8.0
no longer runs, and
Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.

Please note that I have tried running
Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.
What can I do?

Signed,


_______ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________



Reply

DEAR Madam,

First, keep in mind,
Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.

Please enter command:
ithoughtyoulovedme. Html and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0
update.
If that application works as designed, 
 Husband1.0should then automatically run the applications Jewelery 2.0 and Flowers 3.5..

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause 
 Husband 1.0 to default to Silence 2.5 or Beer 6.1.
Please note that
Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Snoring Loudly Beta.


Whatever you do,
DO NOT under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0 
(it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.)

In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the
Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0
.

In summary,
Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly.
You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance.
We recommend:
Cooking 3.0 and Good Looks 7.7.

Good Luck Madam!

Don't we all wish this was true 


Have a great week, I hope all your shots fly straight, you don't have any AD's and you run out of gas in your GBB right after you drop the last man in that massed charge.


See you tomorrow.

So, I wanted a rubber bayonet for my SIG 556


But, I thought, nah,, that wouldn't be good enough.

So, when I walking thru Walmart to buy grass seed, my little eye spotted this, and due to my innate ability to measure diameter at a glance, knew that it would fit in a scope mount ring 
( ya, right, it was just a wild ass guess)

But, wth, here is
The Battle AXE Bayonet
 Pic's suck, but come on, it's late.

See you tomorrow

Another Monday, another joke.

I always wondered how they made those damn things



Well, we made it to another Monday,
Now for a oldie, but a goodie.


 A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him.  The waitress asks them for their orders.

The man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke," and turns to the ostrich, "What's yours?"

"I'll have the same," says the ostrich.

A short time later the waitress returns with the order.  "That will be $9.40 please."  The man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment.

The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and the man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke.."

 The ostrich says, "I'll have the same.."

Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.

This becomes routine until the two enter again. "The usual?" asks the waitress
.
"No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato and a salad," says the man.
"Same," says the ostrich.
Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, "That will be $32.62."  Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the table.
The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer.  "Excuse me, sir.  How do you manage to always come up with the exact change in your pocket every time?"
"Well," says  the man, "several years ago I was cleaning the attic and found an old lamp.  When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes.   My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money  would always be there."
"That's  brilliant!" says the waitress..  "Most  people would ask for a  million dollars or something, but you'll  always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!"
"That's right.  Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there," says the man..
The waitress asks, "What's with the ostrich?"
The man sighs, pauses and answers, "My second wish was for a tall chick with a big butt and long legs who agrees with everything I say.."


I guess the moral here is, be careful what you wish for.
See you tomorrow, same bat time, same bat channel.

Were the heck are the stinking reviews you promised.

View of the inside of the NAFOM ready room

I know I have promised time and again that I would have some reviews up.
Here is why I dont. 
I have been waiting for a trigger pull gauge that I won on Ebay, but have never received.
I have realised that I could just do the reviews and go back and update them when I get the money again for a trigger pull gauge.
I also want to do a good job, if I am gonna do it, it might as well be right.
On that note I am trying to do reviews like they should be done, that is, more than one gun bought from different retailers. I think this is the proper way to do a review. If you do just one, it could be good or bad, if you have more than one I feel it gives it a better chance to let you know how they really work out.
I now have a few built up so I can go forward.
I have bought most of the guns I review myself, this on top of the fact that I have not had a job in 15 months now ( if any of you had you fingers crossed for me on that interview I mention in a earlier post, thank you so much, I did not get picked, but thanks for the effort) .
So you can see funds are tight., but I will try and do a good job for you.
I have received some guns to review from X-caliber Tactical. The SVD in a early review was from them. I will tell you in the review if the gun is provided to me and who it's from. 
I will print my exact findings, good or bad, I refuse to sugarcoat a review.
I would not want someone to buy a item because I lied in a review, I wont do it.
If you have a item or gun you would like a review on, contact me. As long as you understand how I work.

I have bought 4 Tokyo Marui Detonics for my next review, two silver, two black. I have managed to misplace one of the silver one's, so I guess I will do the review on three of them.
Thanks go out to everyone that reads this stupid blog,
sometimes the only high point in the day is seeing my reader count go up.

See you tomorrow.

It's sad that this is the way it has to be.

HK's measured response to another airsoft retailer listing a MP5

No mama, we from some lame ass company that sues for trademarks, were here to help 




I understand why it is, I just am dismayed when I see emails like this,

Dear Retail Partner,


We would like to take a moment to remind all  Retail Partners not to use real firearm brand (ex. HK, Glock, FN, etc.) or real firearm model (ex. G36, G17, SCAR, etc) to advertise or describe airsoft products whether online or in print. 

Airsoft guns are NOT real firearms.  Do NOT use without permission the names of gun manufacturers or their gun models in your product description, advertising or sales records of your airsoft products.  Use of real firearm models to describe replica airsoft products are inaccurate, misleading, and may be a violation of trademark. 


Thank you for your effort and support to make airsoft better for everyone!

Best Regards,


The email above came from an airsoft distributor. It is a CYA type thing.
There is a company out there who's sole purpose in life is to find people advertising "trademarked" items, then
suing those people in the name of the trademark holder, or sending out demand letters that the advertiser pay X number of dollars for it to go away. 
And it's not even Cybergun doing it this time.





I guess my reviews will have to now be of  Colt or XXXXXXXX Gun-maker brand pistol.


On a related note, I found this in a search, I can not find the court date on it though.
I will try and to keep on top of it and see where it leads.


http://dockets.justia.com/docket/court-waedce/case_no-2:2010cv00078/case_id-49891/




Don't get me wrong, I do understand trademark and trade dress law. I just think that the way some companies go about redressing these issues is very underhanded and the worsts way to do things.
To a lot of airsofters, this is the way they are learning about what they like to use. When they reach 21 and buy their "Real Steel" guns they will have already made up their minds and buy what they have been collecting and using for years.
It is impossible to buy that kind of brand loyalty, no matter how much you spend on advertising.
On the same page though, brands that go out of their way to target these potential buyers and their sport, will be remembered when the time comes for money to be spent.


Remember, This is what you get if you use a trademarked name, you scum!!!


Also  Remember 

It's just not right.

What is an Airsofter?

Kinnda like paintball masks, with less vision

The internal question has arose, What is an Airsofter?
I need your input here, I think that there are many facets of airsoft, just as there are in the real firearms world.
I know in the beginning in the US, back when I started in the mid 80's airsoft guns were just toys.
Most people thought of them as either low powered airguns that looked somewhat cool or as a 
"look what I got" unit to impress there buddies. 

It has grown so much more from that in the past years.
I will keep updating this post as my thought process matures throughout the week.
Right now all I am thinking about is tomorrow,  the day the Govt strips and rapes my bank account like they do every year.
Stay tuned for updates, rants and general wandering mind thoughts that trickle out thru the week.


Today is a good day to drink, say hello to my little captain!

I always wondered how to carry a suppressed Colt



Looks like the "no holster" technique is the fastest, 

Very funny, dated but had to share

Unexpected?

So the cover of this month's American Rifleman announces "The Unexpected SIG516".

A new AR clone these days is about as "unexpected" as another Friday the 13th sequel or Law & Order spinoff. What's "unexpected" is that there are still some gun manufacturers who haven't jumped on this bandwagon, since all that's needed to get in the game is an ATF variance letter sent to Consolidated Continental [ed: D'oh!] Machine Tool or Sabre Defense. In a world where such unlikely candidates as Ruger, Remington, and Smith & Wesson are pimping AR-style carbines, what's left?

Here are my predictions for "unexpected" AR announcements at SHOT:
  1. Harrington & Richardson H&R-15: Cast parts and stained birch furniture keep costs down. Sold at Wal-Mart for $109.95.
  2. Marlin MAR-15: Neither direct impingement nor piston operated, the MAR-15 is California-legal, since the bolt is cycled via a complex linkage actuated by rocking the pistol grip forward and back.
  3. Thompson/Center EncoR-15: Available in almost two hundred chamberings, three quarters of which are designed by J.D. Jones and only of interest to handloaders who also hunt rabid grizzly bears.
  4. General Motors GI-15: Unsold inventory stocks will allow these to be sold at zero percent financing with a hefty manufacturer's rebate less than six months after their introduction. Brace for recalls.
  5. Apple iR-15: Only works with proprietary ammunition. Made of sleek, white plastic. Has to be sent to an authorized service center for field-stripping and cleaning. Owners soon sport glazed, zombielike expressions of loyalty familiar to posters at MacForums or GlockTalk.
  6. Harley-Davidson HD-15: Leaks oil. Comes with clip-on ponytail and lick'n'stick eagle tattoo in box, as well as coupon for chromed BUIS, charging handle, and highway pegs.

Super Video done with less than 300.00


This link is dead due to the music, try the one below




And now part two







Not airsoft, but airsoft guns were used.
It amazes me that this can be done so cheap, but turn out so great.

Look for the tan Duo-stock on the hero's gun

Perfect choice of a stock for wearing cold weather gear.
I have a couple and love them, they might look a little odd at first, but once you "get it" you understand why they look that way and they work.

Monday Funny's, just a little early, because you never know if you will make to Monday

 Bruce "THE KING OF ALL MEN" Campbell as Brisco County Jr


My wife sat down on the settee next to me as I was flipping channels. She asked, “What’s on TV?”
I said, “Dust”.
And then the fight started…


My wife and I were watching “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” while we were in bed.. I turned to her and said, “Do you want to have sex?”
“No,” she answered.
I then said, “Is that your final answer?”
She didn’t even look at me this time, simply saying, “Yes.”
So I said, “Then I’d like to phone a friend.”
And then the fight started....



Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked up the boat up to the van, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.
I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. I cuddled up to my wife’s back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, “The weather out there is terrible.”
My loving wife of 5 years replied, “Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?”
And that’s how the fight started…


I rear-ended a car this morning. So, there we were alongside the road and slowly the other driver got out of his car. You know how sometimes you just get so stressed and little things just seem funny? Yeah, well I couldn’t believe it.... He was a DWARF!!! He stormed over to my car, looked up at me, and shouted, “I AM NOT HAPPY!!!”
So, I looked down at him and said, “Well, then which one are you?”
And then the fight started.....


My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary. She said, “I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds.”
I bought her a bathroom scale.


When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her some place expensive… so, I took her to a gas station.
And then the fight started…


After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security. The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver’s license to verify my age. I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home. I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later.
The woman said, “Unbutton your shirt”. So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair. She said, “That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me,” and she processed my Social Security application.
When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office.
She said, “You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability, too.”
And then the fight started…


My wife and I were sitting at a table at my school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.
My wife asked, “Do you know her?”
“Yes,” I sighed, “She’s my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn’t been sober since.”
“My God!” says my wife, “who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?”
And then the fight started…

I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason took my order first. “I’ll have the steak, medium rare, please.”
He said, “Aren’t you worried about the mad cow?”
“Nah , she can order for herself.”
And then the fight started…

A woman was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror. She was not happy with what she saw and said to her husband, “I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.”
The husband replied, “Your eyesight’s damn near perfect.”
           and then the fight started......

Just in case you are having a rough day, here is a seven step stress management technique used traditionally in Sicily. It really works!
1. Picture yourself lying on your belly on a warm rock that hangs out over a crystal clear stream.
2. Picture yourself with both your hands dangling in the cool running water.
3. Birds are sweetly singing in the cool mountain air.
4. No one knows your secret place.
5. You are in total seclusion from that hectic place called the world.
6. The soothing sound of a gentle water fall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.
7. The water is so crystal clear that you can easily make out the face of Nancy Pelosi, the person you are holding under water.

Hate and Airsoft

Get the T-shirt at
 
 
 I was doing some research online and was perusing some "real Steel" gun forums that I normally don't spend the time to read. I found it odd that the subject of how much people "hate" airsoft comes up in a lot of these online venues.
 
It started me thinking about how much the word "hate" comes up in airsoft forums also. 
I have spent 25 years walking in both camps, so maybe I am not the perfect one to understand this, but it vexes me to no end.
 
Let's start with the RS forums ( I have even read a posting on how that person hate's the term "real steel") 
 
HATE AND REAL STEEL

I have read how much they hate airsoft guns, airsoft players, airsoft accessories and just anything that has to do with airsoft in general.
 
I can understand some of their arguments, 
  if you do a Google search for a part, 90% of your 1st hits are airsoft.
 
Airsoft breaks the 1st rule of firearms safety 
(Never point a gun at something your not willing to destroy)
 
Some kid will point a airsoft gun at a cop and will get killed
Some one will use an airsoft gun to rob somebody.

They go on and on, ad nausem. Let me just give you my take on these 4.
 
1. Learn how to do a proper Google search and this will not be an issue, just as you learn how to shoot and not blow off any of your body parts, learn how to search so you don't blow your stack on a gun forum
 
2.Yes, I agree about pointing guns at people that don't need killed. but in a controlled environment this happens all the time.
LE training with simunitions, paintball games, Military training with MILES gear. When I was young we had BB gun wars and also took shotgun shells, cut out the shot and had wad fights 
(DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME)
Stupid? YES, but we grew out of that phase before anyone got hurt.
Airsoft is an extension of these endeavors, one that although can take an eye out, has not killed anyone yet
(Except in Japan)
Boys will be boys, no matter what age they are, when everyone stops playing, I don't want to be around then.
I have seen stupid crap happen at airsoft games, but I have also seen very stupid crap happen at ranges and pistol and rifle matches.
 
3. Some kid points one at a cop, his parents should be to blame, not the inanimate object. People get killed pointing cell phones at cops. If you are to young to understand that you shouldn't do this, you are too young to have a airsoft gun. If you are too stupid to understand this, then you are just too stupid to walk around anyway.
 
4. This argument first came up in 1986 when we had the first display of airsoft at the SHOT show that year, I must have heard it a thousand times, after the first day my retort became this statement, " If I could give every criminal in the US an airsoft gun free, I would, line um up, let's do it. Wouldn't you rather have them pointing a plastic pistol at you than a .32?"
I said it so much it just came out of my mouth before they had gotten half their statement out.
I have only heard one other statement used more, I used to have a knife shop and people would drag their friends in from the mall to point at a bowie and say "Now, that's a knife"  Damn Mick Dundee to hell!!!
 
HATE AND AIRSOFT 
 
You see this come up in airsoft also, I hate noobs, paintsofters, chairsofters, real milers, hi caps, box mags, sniperkids, halokids, full face masks and on and on.

These I can not even wrap my head around to understand, we were all noobs once, even if you came from Seal team six and Dick Marchino had at one time ate part of your liver to survive, you were still an airsoft noob at your 1st game.
 
Sniperkids grow up fast, only takes a game or two.
 
Paintsofters and Real millers, play at different times or different places. It's all for fun, we are not training to take over the town hall.
 
Chairsofters, I have become one lately, soon it will be wheelchairsofter, but hey, I get my own designation then. 
 
Before I start channeling Roddy King, I just want to say, 
we should all hang together, or we will certainly hang separately.
 
In the coming months we will see attacks on our sport of Airsoft, up until this point in time we flew under the radar. Now with glossy airsoft magazines on your local newsstands, 26 booths with something to do with airsoft at the SHOT show and Airsoft stores springing up in strip malls throughout the US, we are going mainstream.   
All I would like to see is us to dial back the hate, just one notch.
If they get our toy guns, it's one step away from our real ones. If they get the real one's, do you think they will let us keep our toys for long?
What do you think?
