I've always been interested in "The Army" and "Army Stuff" so when I found out about airsoft I thought it was a dream come true. You get to run around with guns and play "Army" and actually shoot people! So my friends and I all went out and got our amazing springer pistols, which in time turned into our amazing lpegs and my dominating CYMA Ak-47. My friend got a CA M4 and I got a UTG M-14 and went to some games a couple years back (Operation Flash Fire II, The Battle of the Buldge, and Market Garden II: Operation Duck Hunt), and I had a blast. But my focus shifted more to playing the drums but still wanting to be in this awsome sport. I've been looking through MIA during all this time still wanting to play but something always came up. Money, or should I say lack there of. I got a bunch of money during my birthday to go to a "drumset fund" and even manned up and got a job corn detasseling. I looked at all this money and said, ya know what? I could actually get a good gun and some gear and still have leftover dough. So that's what I did and regestired at MIA. So here I am today.

In 1998 I went with my friend to his family friends house from Japan, where in his room I sat his "Battery powered automatic BB gun" being charged. There sat a Tokyo Marui FAMAS, long before I had even seen an AEG, let alone knew about BB guns that shot plastic BB's. This was shortly after I got my Tippmann model 98 at for my ninth birthday. It wasn't long after that my neighbor got a Skorpion springer, which was the first airsoft gun I have shot. My first purchase was a year later, a HFC Beretta M92f, such a quality springer, followed up with the classic HFC MP5 SD3 springer. It was right around 9/11 at this point, I was in 7th grade, still played paintball, and just had springer games with my neighbor and brother.
So fast forwarding to summer 2004, I met Gestapo, Vmax and Turtleboy through this forum for my first game against AEG's. I still had a spring MP5 at this time, with my paintball guns up for sale. October 2004 my first real game, Operation Northern Flight held by MTASC in Gaylord, I rented a TM AK47 for the day and later won a KSC Glock 34 in the raffle, which became my first "Real" airsoft gun. I know a lot of old players were there including GK, 21st Century crew, ACO, and I do believe SOCOM. Not but two months later I got my Tokyo Marui Gspec for Christmas.
Here is the first picture I ever posted on this forum.
It wasn't until Summer 2005 I got my first AEG, a TM MP5k and TM M4 using the money sold from my Autococker paintball gun.
I still go to games, have played for several teams, Still don't give a shit about loadouts, and have been using my same primary since 2006. Have met tons of people through this game, always has been a good time.
My airsoft gun lineup 2004/2005: KSC Glock 34, TM Gspec, TM MP5k, TM M4, KWC National Match. 2006/2007: KSC M9 V.1, G&G M14, TM M4 V.2 SPR Mod1, Maruzen L96, JG Krinkov. 2008/2009: KSC M9 V.2, Another TM Mp5k, KWA 1911 V.2, and Another KSC M9 V.1. Present: Only have my Maruzen L96 and KSC M9 V.2.

I aim I squeeze, Pause for a moment a passing breeze. My finger steady, my trigger cold, I feel the recoil and watch him fold.
