Old man at the SHOT Show , some Pic's

Ok, I guess I need to start loading some pic's up, seeing as its been over a month now.
1st off, the Firestarter.
The Knife is a Gerber, painted to match. That's me in front of the Gerber booth. 
They took lots of pictures also.

In front of the JP booth, Mr JP himself loved the gun.

The best looking and smartest sales person at the show.
The Firestarter just looked so much better when she was holding it.

What is the Firestarter?
The most expensive and in my opinion, the best looking airsoft racegun ever built.
Started life as a Madbull JP, after a huge amount  worth of custom paint by a high end bike shop from the northwest, lots of magic from X-Caliber Tactical's custom shop and some led lights in the forend, it is as you see it now, a masterpiece.
I got the pleasure to walk this from the X caliber booth , across the whole SHOT show floor to the JP booth, I can truly say it created a huge stir on the floor.  I was stopped time and again by vendors and attendees asking what it was and commenting on how great it turned out.

Cost to replicate?????
North of 5 grand
How good it looks in person?
My Pictures do it no justice at all, I will have some better ones up soon.

I have a dream, to help all airsofters unite

The following is meant as satire, it is not meant in any way to offend "friends of Bill" or any others. It is written as a joke, please take it that way.


1. We admitted we were powerless over airsoft—that our closets, bedrooms and garages had become

2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to
sanity. That power must reside in Japan at Tokyo Marui

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of our Airsoft guns and gear as we
understand it. (Explain that to your Wife, GF, or significant other)

4. Made a searching and fearless inventory of guns and gear.

5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature
of our wrongs. Like buying that Cybergun branded POS

6. Were entirely ready to have PDI remove all these defects out of our barrels.

7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. (inability to judge MED's, how to convert MPS to FPS)

8. Made a list of all persons we had shot, and became willing to shoot
 them all again, very soon.

9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible ( sorry about that tooth), except when to do
so would injure them or others. (like when you are hosing them at 400 rounds per min)

10. Continued to take personal inventory of all our guns and gear and when we find something missing, we promptly have to buy it.

11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with
airsoft, as we understood it, praying only for knowledge of its will for us
and the power to carry that out. and not to be a troll or be a NOOB on the forums.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to
carry this message to Non-Airsofters (paintballers), and to practice these principles in all our
affairs. (even if it means that people at our job look at us funny, all the time)

I know, you hoped it was the end of me!

I am now on the path to recovery after my recent bout with what I am going to call
This is the disease you get every time you go to a SHOT show in Las Vegas.
My arm is still down, but I am learning to type fair with my left hand only.
The weather looks like it might be changing for the better also, it is hard as hell to do gas gun reviews when the mercury never gets above 40 degrees.
Check back soon, just got in a Marushin Single Action Army Colt for test and evaluation.
just what the doctor ordered to complete that "Jed" Red Dawn load out.
More very soon

Really I am still here

Due to injury from the last day at SHOT, I am still on the walking wounded list.

My Right arm is about useless so it interferes with my typing and also, a, a, a, other pursuits.

Never fear, new posts and pic's coming soon

Also, RIP henchman 24, you will be missed
