Be careful what you import, scheme to sell phony holographic sights online

I was wondering when this was going to start.


Looks like the "crack down" that has been talked about might be kicking off,
then again, could just be a flash to scare everyone to quit.

That being said, I guess the days of "real trades" are numbered in the US.

TT-33 Tokarev by KWA Review, (Kindda,sorta)

,This is an airsoft gun I am amazed that 10 companies don't already make.

I know there have been versions in the past, but as you all know these have been very hard to find.

With the fact that so many choose a soviet loadout,
I have always thought that some one was missing the bus on this.
You could always get by with a CZ-75 for a 80's and up loadout, but if you were trying for anything WWII and later you were sunk like an Italian sub with a screen door.

NO MORE

KWA in it's infinite wisdom has decided the long drought of Soviet handguns (or Chinese type 54)
is OVER.
Here is the link to some real steel history on this piece of handgun engineering.
Now that you know the history, here is the "sorta" review,
I say that because this was the prototype and I did not get to shoot it. 
So this is more like a , hey, this looks and handles well, review.

I kinnda said it all in that last sentence, it looks and handles well.
Great weight at 1lb 10ozs ( about 5ozs less than a real one)
Nice overall black finish with no trades.
The no trades I can live with, as I have owned a few of these in RS that had very few markings on them at all.
The black finish looks good, but I predict that most of these will be "aged" as soon as the are purchased.





I think I have owned 5 or so RS one's over the years,
I don't remember one that had more than a trace of finish on them by the time they got to my hands.

The grips even feel cheap, just like the real one's.


Even though I did not get to shoot it, come on, it's a KWA.
I own many of this brands GBB's and have yet to buy one new that sucked.


I will buy one for testing as soon as they land in the US.
I will update you at that time.
Just know for now, all of you wanting to complete that Czech, Commissar or NVA loadout,
Your wait is almost over.

"Look over here guys, I just got my KWA,
Ahh shit,,,HIT"


Till Tomorrow
Stay thirsty my friends

North Atlantic Airsoft Expo Picture wrap up

So here it is, 
It was a lot of work, a whole lot of fun and
I can't wait till next year. 

 Pyamind air had a great display of just some of their wares, New Vendor for this year
 FoxFury Lighting had a display of their tactical lights.
 Big Boy Toys was back for their second year as a major sponsor of the Expo

NC Team SG-12 had a great display again this year of some of the Stargate inspired weapons.

 KWA showed up, and did it right.
They had prototypes on display and guns to test on the range.

 Cool Combat, a local NC field had a nice display and video running showing off the field attributes.


 Smart Target LLC was here as well, introducing the newest line of RS targets to the airsoft market

 Shoot My Ash, funny name but a fantastic idea. Wood based target system with feedback


 Crazy Cro Mag, he came to sell with a huge amount of items




 The last pic's have all been from Crazy Cro mags booth, it was a very bigggggg Booth

 On Target airsoft brought the whole line of S-thunder products to shoot and test, 
those mines are loud puppies.

 ARES uncasing the BIG Dogs, and a grease gun to boot
 Extra Picture of the Grease Gun, just because I covet it soooo much
Pantac stepped up  this year and brought the full line, what a display.
It was also nice that if you found something you liked, right next door was Cro Mag with it for sale.

The door ran to a little over 700 people, up from last year.
A drenching rain on Sunday kept some home, but the brave souls who ventured out in it got the opportunity to compete in the Tactical shoot off and some other great activity's .


 Fluke was our winner of the vintage loadout trophy.
and rightly so.



 some of the loadout competitors
.

 Did I mention KWA was there? They won the "BEST VENDOR" award, 

 Snake from MWGS ( the youtube sensation) and Micah were on hand to sign posters and film
Snake seemed to enjoy himself


Lots of other bloggers and video crews were there to show what you missed, but I guess like me, it's taking them a little time to edit ( I am just old and lazy as hell )

This video is exclusively for the Grand Inquisitioner, who seems to think us southerners are a bunch of hicks, showed you huh? 

If you didn't make it this year, you missed a hell of a show,
If you don't make it next year, come on, are you really an airsofter?
