Tokyo Marui M4A1 that i've had for 9 years - still kicks hard.
Tokyo Marui L96 AWS

I'm looking to pick up a new M4/Scar with recoil shock when I get a chance. I haven't been able to hit up the fields but it's a great work out and loads of fun. The scene has been going up and down for years, but it seems to be taking a bit of a resurgence which makes me happy.

Cool video, glad you're enjoying it. Just a tip ! You can also mount your gopro to your gun to give a really good POV for your viewers if you're intending on creating more videos in the future. The headcam is great, but when it's attached to the gun you get to see the BB's trajectory.



There's a lot of serious MILSIM games that go on that people (mostly ex-military) take very seriously. Objective based, lasting all day long. With the new guns from TM, they're so realistic that you have to load your mag, hit the bolt catch in order to get your gun to load the BB's. There's also new mags that stop your gun from being able to fire once you are out of rounds (30 round mags available for MILSIM).

The airsoft scene is not very serious here in Houston Texas. My main plan is to use it as a training-aid for firearms manipulation (since stopped using "real steel" due to ammo availability and cost) but casual gameplay is a lot of fun too. That, and it get's my arse out of the couch which is a must.

I once advocated for using Airsoft as a training tool. Alas, the higher ups in the community saw it as more of a toy, and argued that it wasn't "realistic" enough. Besides, they had already invested into the sim rounds. Personally I think that using chalk BBs achieves almost the same effect as a sim round at a fraction of the cost. At the very least it could be useful during Robin Sage.


Higher ups in community? Are they avid shooters or from law enforcement?

Nowadays airsoft guns are getting more sophisticated with recoils and ejecting shells, so their perception is outdated.

I'm a big fan of military simulation or MILSIM for short. Never a fan of rifle magazine that carries 500 round.





I guess the term "community" is a bit misleading. I'm talking about in the military, a very specific group within the military. The "higher ups" being those guys that sit in those nice offices in North Carolina and Florida. I thought "Robin Sage" would give it away, but I guess it's a very obscure term. It's like using "Superbowl" in Europe.

I have some friends that really into airsoft, and I know how realistic it can seem. He goes to these huge airsoft matches every once in a while that he wants me to attend when I find the time. Seems interesting, but I'm not all that into it.... feels too much like "work"

My youngest sibling has an air soft gun.

I've never played air soft but I spectate her matches. I've been hit before though... Doesn't hurt at all, actually.

My brother and I do. We have quite a lot of gear, perhaps I'll be able to take a picture of it all soon. We live in CA so we have Airsoft GI, Evike, and SC Viper very close by, so that's handy.

I've wanted an airsoft AK-47. But, I can do without, since I have real guns. One of which is a sporterized Zastava M70AB2.
