Haha thanks! I actually played for about 5-6 years but that was about a decade ago. Back then there weren't any fields that we knew of in MI so it was me and a group of friends that played on private property a friends dad owned. When we were getting out of it, there was a paintball field in Livonia that was starting to host airsoft nights once a week and we went to that maybe twice then everyone kinda got out of it. We were on airsoft retreat a lot back then too and worked on our guns a lot.
Retained most of what I knew and most of my collection in hopes of getting back into it one day. Low and behold I started to look into it again just recently and found the boards and was amazed to see how large the community is and that there is not only one but many fields open in the state now. Started talking about it to a group of friends at work and now I have a group and places to play it regularly.
It also was a learning curve coming back gun shopping. Last time I was in the market there were 3 companies who made AEGs and only one worth buying, TM CA and ICS. CA and ICS were zinc bodies that cracked when you looked at them and had about 7-10 guns in their lineup, all ARs, couple mp5s. TMs were the same as they are now. G&G+G&P were new manufactures with about 5 guns in their lineup and everyone was weary about them. KWC and KWA/KSC were the main gas gun manufactures and KJW were trying to make a name for themselves.
Now I come back and there is a ton of manufactures and guns to choose from, and a wholeee ton of new upgrade manufactures. Systema, First Factory and Head dominated the market for upgrades last I looked I think. I'm learning the new stuff as quick as I can. (tough for us old timers )
Looking forward to contributing and discussing things here and meeting everyone at games, as well as upgrading and expanding my collection as time and finances allow.
Hades08: That's funny, I actually didn't even know that. Kinda cool to know though. This is literally what I had in my wardrobe and used to wear all the time back in high school, (fiance has since made sure I don't "look like an old guy") It's now dedicated to airsoft play. Thanks for the feedback!
outlaw: Haha this is true, that slide there is cracked and stopped holding the frame. I installed a metal kit a few days ago..but I am going to sandblast it for a nice stainless look. I'll update pictures once it's finished.
Dallas: Thanks! I love my USP. USPc is one of my favorite pistols so I really tried to make that one nice. Looking back I really miss my AUG. Loved that gun it was so realistic and heavy, made it a blast to use. I really wish I had taken good photos of it before I sold it. Lesson learned of course so now I'm starting to take better pictures of all my gear and guns for the archives! Thanks again.
Thanks guys, I really wish I had better pictures of my AUG. I added 2 more hideous ones for you anyway. That's all I got though. Ah before I cared about backgrounds and image quality..those were the days.
Updated my project glock pictures too. metal kit i bought well worn for a good price. Didn't mind as it's going to be sandblasted soon. Stay tuned.
I can never get the KSC/KWA Glocks to work for me. I would love a G19 as a sidearm. So simple and basic. How does yours fire? Your USPc is one cool little pistol. That metal kit is really nice. When I was shooting it I could only get two and a half fingers around the compact grip. It's so small.
