Nova Scotia is probably the fastest growing province in the airsoft community. Four years ago there were zero fields in ns. We had a core group called the potato mashers that would drive to new Brunswick every second weekend. There were also a couple unaffiliated people driving up(me included) and a few private games.

Total 2009 nova Scotia airsoft community was approximately 25~30 people. Now there are countless private fields and even a couple of walk on pay fields. Community is probably 200 strong and growing.

Rock the ridge game last August in Annapolis valley had a turnout of around 150, and that in a hurricane. August 5 this year there is the 2012 rock the ridge and I expect over 200. Not bad for a Cote group of 25 dedicated players 4 years ago.

Of course there is a lot of teething with a high noob percentage. Things are mostly good, but not calling hits is a rising problem.

The Calgary area has two paintball fields, an indoor airsoft location and a dedicated airsoft field. I'd say that's pretty good. My friend and I both joined in the last six months and I've met several others who have joined recently too. No shortage of new players here.

Defiantly not. I played 4-5 years ago when things were grimmmmmm. I came back to amazement of there is an actual airsoft shop in Vancouver now... and fourth hand guns didn't cost $700-800.

No access to BB's locally is a pretty bad reason. Either order them yourself (or get a friend to pay then pay them back since you don't have payment options) or get someone to start up a small ammo order business by buying a shit ton and reselling them. You could even do that yourself. It isn't really an excuse if the players are there and using up ammo.
