Can I ask you a serious question? How much sand can you fit in your vagina?

I suggest the Star G36. A very well built polymer body, quick change spring, and V3 gearbox. It's a well balanced gun, and shoots like a champ.

We've had a few woman out with us over the years. Airsoft is definitely a male dominated sport and most of the woman we've had were "one if the guys". So as long as they don't mind crawling through the mud with the rest of us, there is no problem. Also they are must be treated equally and fall within the same rules as the guys. She must be her own player out there; so no flying to her rescue if she accidently gets popped in the face. If she makes friends with the other players, they will hit on her; or become more relaxed around her with their sense of humor.

It's not usually the girl that has issues with this stuff, it's her boyfriend/husband. Which is why, after several failed attempts; we no longer allow couples on the field. You can be a man or woman, and will be treated fairly; but leave your other half at home. This is just our way due to consistent past experiences unfortunately.

The wife runs a m14 dmr or a tm sig 552. As for rigs I lost my eagle cras....

She never felt like an outsider while on the field. But then again he is used to sticking out being a machinist

My GF plays regularly now with my Squad, she favors PISTOL matches predominently...
She'll rock two pistols most of the time with tons of mags....

Were are about the same height ..5'2 - 5'3...(YES SHORT INDEED...LOL) But that never stops us from having a blast...

She runs a Flyye Plate Carrier with an AOR1 replica or Black BDU..and a full google/mask combo (to protect her pretty face..)
...she tried several combinations of ESS Profile fan googles with mesh mask, or Revision Sawflys with mesh mask and each time either her hair would get in the way, mask was too tight, fogging would occur in 2 seconds flat....in the end a full mask combo was the way to go...super comfy..super safe...

When she does run an AEG, she really likes the MP5K, due to its small profile and light weight....at the heaviest..she'll run my old TM G36C with a high cap mag...to lighten her load...

Most people I play with got to know her simply by her coming to a game, trying it out and most importantly...HAVING A BLAST WHILE DOING SO...SHE LOVES CQB....LOVES PISTOL GAMES...LOVES SHOOTING PEOPLE IN THE ASS...

I think it's safe to say being shot in the boobs equates to us guys being shot in the dick. Finding a small enough plate carrier would be a bit of an issue if she's really slim, you'd really have to bring her somewhere to have her try it on. Also a full face mask would probably be most beneficial.


As for gun selection, I've brought smallish girls to the field before, and they didn't mind using m4s, AKs or what not... the last girl I brought to the field thought my p90 was too cute to use. But just like the guys, once you pick it up and shoot a bit, it feels so nice easy to move around with.

Thats sad to hear....i guess everyones experience differs...

I know that when I assigned my GF to be the Nemesis (Invincible Menace) at my last pistol game...it was sure as shit fun as hell to be running at MACH 1 away from her to avoid getting shot multiple times in the ass...lol..cuz believe me....EVERYONE was running away....that made her presence even more enjoyable...to me at least...most guys on the field know Im her man..so i don't fret too much ...

That's right babe ! I am the scariest NEMESIS ever!

As a woman, I would like to give my opinion on this subject.

I am sorry to hear you had bad experiences having couples in games, however, I disagree that playing with your better half should be banned from games and here is my argument:

MATURITY!

Need I say more ?



Cheers!

Spot on.

If a game host has to resort to banning the couples-milieu in game play, the problem doesn't lay in those couples - but rather with the lack of maturity that is being consistently demonstrated by the other players.

It's a normal reaction for an attached guy to get pissed off with others who are demonstrating disrespect to their partner, and to them, by making inappropriate advances - and it is immature behavior if people are not be able to keep it in their pants, when it comes to others that would normally be off-bounds in any other social situation. It shows a level of immaturity on the part of the perpetrators that needs correction - and banning either of the victims in that sort of situation isn't the appropriate action to be taking. It's a band-aid fix, not a solution to the root problem of player bad behavior.

I agree with you HackD, however, the Game Host organizes games and rules are his to create/implement.

If the organizer does not want to have couples on his games, we must comply!

I'd recommended the KAC PDW too, very small and very sleek. Also comes with ability to share m4 mags and all the good stuff that comes with using m4 mags. IE easily stacked and most vest love m4 mags

You sir have a keeper.

Yes I would advise to get her a light gun like and extendable stock MP5 or a adjustable stock CQB short barrel weapon or G36 style as suggested would be a good choice. Not heavy to run around with for an extended period of time. For a vest something like an RRV with admin panel would provide good protection without being too heavy. If she doesn't care about weight but more about protection you could go with a CIRAS type vest. Make sure to get her a set of ballistic rated goggles (revision, ess, oakley) and a lower mesh mask.
As far as fields go there are a few girls that play semi regularly at Sgt. Splatters and UA.

Nice to see this thread. My gf is kind of interested in playing, just a little apprehensive about starting.

Not exactly. I'm not a game host, we are a team. Have been for a very, very long time. I agree that maturity plays a large role; but that's not the only dynamic here. We are a big family. We attend each others weddings, watch each others homes and pets when they are on holidays, we look out for everyones kids, our wives/girlfriends hang out constantly, have big barbecues, our extended family knows our airsoft buddies well, etc; you get the picture. We are involved in each others lives and see each other daily. Over the course of such a long time, drama happens. Strictly involved with airsoft; we've seen a nasty divorce, an affair, couples fighting about personal crap (every game day), fist fights and threats. All caused by both counterparts sharing a field. "bad experience" doesn't come close to covering it; and I'm giving the light version.

I don't want to give the wrong impression here. I would never tell another field, business, group, team, etc to ban couples. I know many couples that play team based sports together, and are very happy. And I'm an advocate for equal treatment for both sexes. I'm simply giving some advice. Having your better half present often adds a new dynamic for everyone. If you both remain "your own players", then you and everyone else will enjoy it more. I hope it works out, and strengthens your relationship. <"I mean this with absolutely no cynicism".

My friend had a smaller multicam plate carrier he bought for his wife; it was perfect for her frame. I'll see if I can find out where he got it. BDUs are a little more difficult from surplus or replica. Buy a new style, like 5.11 tactical as they make woman's sizes, or "smaller" sizes. she also really liked her SWAT boots. I know several female paramedics that swear by them, but they are heavy.

Guys have a tendency to be overprotective of their better half. One of the most talented players we had was female. She was actually better than her husband by a spell.

My wife with a WE M4 with a 12'' ris punching paper. She's 5'2 and 90ish pounds



With a 4.3 hicappa.

She's cool with punching paper but not with force on force stuff. I think it's only a matter of time though!

My girlfriend is enjoying her second year playing airsoft. She 5 feet tall and she uses a Classic Army Mp5 Navy with retractable stock. She's been telling me lately that she wants a pistol, but now we have to find one that fits in her hand.

As for gear she uses a load bearing molle vest from voodoo tactical, blackhawk fingerless gloves and merell boots.
