Thumbs up Hey, guys.

Hey!

My buddy is an old airsoft player and I have finally seen the light. Bought a gun and batteries before ever reading that I should try the game before I buy (oh well). I'm an old paintballer and loved that. Airsoft looks way better so I don't imagine it'll be an issue.

I haven't played a game yet but I'll be out to Bigfoot or Panther sometime soon. Hopefully I can find someone there to AV me!

-Tim

Talk to Ricochet. He's in Maple Ridge, a lot closer than any other of the Lower Mainland AV Reps (who are mainly concentrated in Richmond/Burnaby). He's very knowledgeable and will set you up.

Yeah, it just seems more strategic to me, which I like. More tactics and team work. My experience with paintball is that it was mostly "heroes" who would just spray and pray.

Eh...... You know those guys with electro markers and crazy ramping? Yeah.... there are people like that except they shoot a laser beam of plastic. Find the right game/group and there won't be much of that, but if you find yourself with the wrong group it's pretty much going to be like 30+RPS laser beams everywhere.

If you ever want to see that shit go away right quick, set up a Shotguns & Sniper Rifles game.

If you're lucky, the spray and pray high-rof crowd will be so embarrassed they'll never come back.

Are those 200 round shower grenade launchers worth the cash? They look awesome...

If you're clearing rooms - they aren't bad and have a purpose when used at a squad level. For outdoor they aren't very useful.

If you play mostly CQB they are worth taking a look at. Standalone or rifle mounted they provide a very quick and efficient way to clear a hallway or room of bad guys.

Maybe I'll hold off for a bit then and work on getting stuff as I need it. I have everything to play the game now (or at least ordered). Overall everything wasn't too pricey so far. All I do now is look at gear, though. So hard to not purchase everything right off the bat haha.

Exactly why I stopped playing a couple of years ago.
