not to mention the fact that once you break that 500fps barrier, you got a firearm ... and an illegal one at that.

He stated that he currently lives in the US at the moment.

He was recalling memory from the Phillipines.

No more arguing

Not necessarily. It requires I believe 6.3 Joules of energy behind the BB itself. Little known fact.

Thank you for reading my thread. I now know how my father feels whenever I listen to his war stories. His was real.

answer(s) to some questions:

1. My apologies for posting this tread to the ICS bible page. Two years ago a bought an ICS (for display...yup!). However last night, I got this crazy idea of "why not upgrade it" project. That is how I found your site.

And then I read erp saying that Filipino's ride their guns hard. It made me smile...lay back as memory started to flash before me.

Thanks erp. I needed that. Maybe it is time for me to go back playing airsoft. :salute:

2. Goggles - you'd be crazy not to wear a full face mask.

3. VipaMave - ...defeat the purpose of Airsoft: please do not get me wrong with my answer. We all have our own opinion. However:

Please do not generalize it. What is true to you may not be true to others. The fact is we belong to a different culture. Therefore we have a different taste(s). Why do you think "the running of the bull" is such a famous sport in Spain and not the rest of the world?

The thing is, in the Philippines...if you shot someone, for example, in the arm or in the hands and he bleeds...and he knows you are the one who shot him…after that game...at the safe zone...you can even approach him and ask for a cigarette. Believe me, he will turn to you, smile, give you a smoke and tell then you - "nice game" or "nice one". You don't even have to apologize. Some people are even offended when you apologize to them.

...the sport may be band...

The Philippine Army opened a site in Fort Bonifacio for Airsoft Players. Even real soldiers play airsoft. Airsoft is a biggie in the Philippines...it is like baseball here - every weekends. And there is no need for a waiver. One time RSGC had a game and we saw a father and son team. And the son is only 10 years old. What strike me most is that when everyone was not shooting at the kid…he yelled and said “play fair.” Seriously!

My theory is...all it would take for the sport to be band here is a simple law suit coming from someone who got hurt playing the sport. People who try to fit into the sport that is obviously not for them.

people who does not what to get hurt playing the sport should just play "counterstrike" at home. Hell, just by running from cover to cover you can trip and get hurt.

However, we all have to make sure that our sport stay alive. It is our duty and responsibility to others who love the sport as well to make it so. If your club or organization calls or ask for an FPS limit. Abide by it. It is there for a reason.

4. Yes…I now live here in the States. And yes…I played airsoft here already. But again…don’t get me wrong…I still prefer to play the kind of Airsoft Game I used to know back in the Philippines. It is different….it is almost real. A different level. I remember I use to ask myself…”what if everything was real…I would be dead by now” only to find out that everyone was asking that same kind of question.

5. damage – kamusta pre! Ayos ba tayo dyan.

Again guys thanks. LIVE WELL AND LIVE STRONG!

Sounds painfull. I have had many positive experiences in my life directly linked to pain, so I can understand the allure. Little more risk, little more reward..

Personally I have alwas wanted to try out scenarios with Simunition. Can't get it or the gun adapters up here unless you are police or CF. Even then it's pretty tough.

I have a friend in North Dakota who is operational as a Seal (not sure what outfit) and he says he would love to start a simunition leauge, but the costs are prohibitive. Simunition shells are sometime more expensive then real ammo, and on top of a real wepon, you have to but the adapter kit to fire the Simunition shells..insurance etc. Would be a rich mans game.

Hurst pretty bad but people still want to do it. Personally, I think loud concerts (Van Warped Tour) constitute a fair amount of physical damage and pain, but I still go..:-)

I'd love to try games in the Philippines =) [maybe ill visit some relatives in a few years]
I love the game sites they are able to play at. A lot of the places are abandoned/private areas/buildings. They do hold tournaments as well I believe, if i translated some of the threads they have on the FilAirsoft forums.
Airsoft on a totally different level from how it is played in Canada. =]
they have ways to maintain their V2 gearboxes from crackerage! !!!

it is an either or situation, here is the section from the CCC

(3) For the purposes of sections 91 to 95, 99 to 101, 103 to 107 and 117.03 of this Act and the provisions of the Firearms Act, the following weapons are deemed not to be firearms:
(d) any other barrelled weapon, where it is proved that the weapon is not designed or adapted to discharge
(i) a shot, bullet or other projectile at a muzzle velocity exceeding 152.4 m per second or at a muzzle energy exceeding 5.7 Joules, or
(ii) a shot, bullet or other projectile that is designed or adapted to attain a velocity exceeding 152.4 m per second or an energy exceeding 5.7 Joules
.


So if you exceed either limit.. it's a firearm. in Canada

Don't assume North American airsoft is a world standard. There alot more Asian airsofters who play to their standards compared to our rather small market.
No, North American ETHICS are valued by the UN or alliances such as NATO or NORAD (not to mention the North American governments).

Its the fact people hurt other people just because they want to.

What I said earlier: If violence and airsoft are associated in other countries, Canadian politicians could catch on to this and lead to a ban for airsoft in Canada.
Sure, North America and the Phillipines have different customs. Give me one good reason to associate that with the issue. It is COMPLETELY irrelvant. Putting INJURY and AIRSOFT together won't just affect the country in matter. I'm sure the idea that airsoft CAN cause injury CAN lead to some sort of ban on Airsoft in Canada or North America for that matter.

I'm sure North America wants individuals running around with airsoft rifles that can potentially cause bodily harm AND resemble real firearms, right?

I see, a provision was made. But, again, keep in mind you can just swap for heavier BBs to hit under 500fps, as long as the 5.7J isn't exceeded.

And that's where the problem lies. The gun shoots at 600fps with .2's... So by legal definition of the firearms act, it's illegal. But wait! Load up .36's, and it's 470fps, it's now legal?

The "fps" is purely a soccer mom freak thing. Kinda like a top speed on a car. Should be purely based on energy.
