During the Project Reality gas blowback event I attended last weekend, I got a chance to spend a little time with the version 2 prototype of the KWA KRISS Vector GBB Submachine gun.
To sum up my experience in one word, I would say it was DELIGHTFUL.

 So, I had the privilege to attend a unique milsim event last weekend called, "Project Reality: Direct Action."  This was a gas blowback-only event, meaning you could only use gas blowback Airsoft weapons (rifles, pistols & SMGs) in the game.  No AEGs, in other words.
In case you're unfamiliar with this concept, limiting weapons use to only that of the gas blowback types tends to increase the quality of gameplay.  As many of you know, gas blowback guns of any type come with a much more limited capacity of ammo within their magazines compared to an AEG, which forces the operator to choose his or her shots more wisely instead of haphazardly spraying and praying.  It forces the forces, if you will, to have to move around the field much more to gain a more favorable position to take the shot or achieve objectives.  With that being said, last weekend's action at SC Viper in Chino, California was no different.  It was a great day of Airsoft to say the very least.  

I got a full day's worth of gaming in, plus, I managed to meet a few new people, including the guys from the Corridor Digital YouTube channel, and also got to spend a bit of time checking out some of the new and upcoming guns from KWA, which is always fun.

If you'd like to see some of the photos I took from the event, you can do so after the jump...

So I thought for today's installment of my Health and Safety Series exclusively for Airsoft Champions, I figured I'd better cover a topic that should have been covered a long time ago here on the Pyramyd Airsoft Blog.

Read more after the jump...

Brian Holt from Echo1 and I headed out to Georgia last month to hang out at the SS Airsoft Indoor CQB Facility for the weekend. Here is a bit of a recap of that weekend.

Tuesday's blog focused on some reasons for choosing a practical AEG for your 1st Airsoft rifle versus going with a more exotic looking rifle that may or likely may not be reliable, accurate or both. That blog is here: Choosing a Practical Rifle

So, once you choose a solid AEG option that should, in theory, last you awhile, you'll need to take a few other items into consideration before blowing your entire budget on the gun. Here are some items that are pretty much essential and/or required in order for you to actually go out to a game and play with your beautiful new AEG.

Airsoft Guns, Madbull,Airsoft .25g BBs,Airsoft BBs, Airsoft ammo, Airsoft 6mm ammunition,AEG, GBBP, GBBR, pyramyd air, airsoft obsessed Airsoft BBs (you know, ammunition?)  This isn't like your favorite First-Person Shooter (FPS) game where you automatically start out with a bunch of ammo.  Nope, this is the cold, cruel and very real world where you have to buy your ammo in addition to your rifle.

AEG Batteries (AEG = Automatic Electric Gun). Need I say more? I'll be revisiting batteries again later, but for the time being, refer to this thread (AEG Battery Pack Knowledge) for more specific information regarding the types of batteries available to choose from.

AEG Battery Charger Otherwise you won't get too many games in before you run out of juice. Know what I mean, dog baby?

Eye Protection It's hard to enjoy looking at all those beautiful guns in your arsenal if you you've been blinded by a BB to the pupil.






Airsoft Guns, 5.11 Tactical Series, Multicam Rapid Assault TDU Shirt,Airsoft Gear, Airsoft Camo, Airsoft Uniform, Airsoft Loadout,AEG, GBBP, GBBR, 5.11,pyramyd air, airsoft obsessed Tactical Dress Uniform (TDUs). These serve not only a practical purpose, but they also help to make you look like a winner. From extensive personal experience, I've found that the TDUs from 5.11 Tactical not only meets my demanding needs for a set of threads that can hold up against heavy wear and tear, but they also do a darn good job at making me look good in the process of ruining the OPFOR's day. Technically, you don't have to have a uniform to play in most weekly pick-up games.  Most larger events usually enforce the dress code a bit more, but I've yet to find a field hosting a pickup game where they turn you away because you're wearing street clothes.  However, you will find that you will be one of very few, if not the only one, wearing street clothes, so you might want to consider investing in a set of TDUs at your earliest convenience. 


So there may be one or two things I might be forgetting, but I'm pretty sure those are the main items that you have to have.

Some would argue that you ABSOLUTELY have to have a red dead rag.  This is only true if your field requires it.  Although, even if it doesn't, I would highly recommend one, as it helps to avoid many unpleasant situations like being continuously shot while you're walking back to the re-spawn point or dead box.

That's all for now, therefore, I say to you, "Tootles!"

Airsoft.



Practicality: Choosing a reliable & accurate rifle for your 1st and 2nd Airsoft Rifles.

So today's blog will be focusing on the theme of Practicality, a concept that doesn't get a whole lot of lovin' in the Airsoft world.  I've said it before, but I would say that the majority of us got into Airsoft because we saw how cool the guns and gear looked and instantly fell in love with the glamour of it all. 

However, the cold cruel reality is that there are certain models or types of guns that are just not practical choices when you're choosing your first Airsoft gun.  There are multiple reasons for this.  For example, I would generally would not recommend a Gas Blowback Rifle (GBBR) for someone who is brand new to Airsoft and/or shooting guns, real or Airsoft.  GBBRs are much more high-maintenance than AEGs, in my experience, and most models use a very low-capacity magazine to enhance the realism factor.  I've found that most beginners, should go with a higher capacity magazine to start off with while they develop their shooting skills. Additional consideration when choosing your first two rifles should be given to durability and skirmishable accuracy (can the rifle hit a torso-sized target at 50 yards, assuming the gun is shooting between 350 to 400 fps with a .20g and the shooter has enough natural ability to figure out how to aim the rifle at his/her intended target).  Chances are, if you're new to Airsoft, you have no real business trying to take your gun apart for repairs or upgrades yet.  So you're going to need a gun that you can use that can stand some abuse and has a generally good reputation for not breaking down.  Again, since you really should leave your gun's internals alone for awhile, until you can do some proper research, so you'll need a gun with decent accuracy (read: a well-made hop-up unit). 

With those criteria in mind, here are a few recommendations from me to all the noobz out there, looking for which gun to get.  This is not an all-inclusive list, but should do you just fine.

Throughout my time as a player, I have used my powers of observation to learn a few things about Airsoft team dynamics.  I've seen what does work.  I've seen what doesn't work.  Today, we'll be discussing a few points concerning the latter.

Check out a few points for what not to do as part of an Airsoft team after the jump...

Ah, yes. Today we pay a visit to the Elite Force M4 CQC AEG Rifle. This model is not yet available for sale to the public yet, but Cliff Eisenbarger & Andy Green over at Elite Force were kind enough to give in to my whining and complaining about getting some pre-production samples sent to my grid.

This photo was "borrowed."  It was probably taken by Andy Green Photography.  If not, then it was taken by someone else close to the American MilSim crew.  I did not ask permission to use it, but am willing to suffer the consequences because it is an awesome photo.  Whenever possible, make sure you have your team get their pic taken as they're walking away from an explosion (without looking back at it or flinching). 
Alright.  So I've got a bit of a special blog (perhaps even a small series) regarding how to start an Airsoft team.  And not just any Airsoft team, but one that is awesome.  

What makes me the authority on starting Airsoft teams?  Oh, I don't know really.  Why not worry about that after you have read what I have to say and then decide whether I know what I'm talking about or not.
