Hi folks,
My name is Jun. I am Japanese, but living in France. I am 36 going on 37.
I am a newcomer at ASC but practicing airsoft since 2005 and quite active on the France Airsoft forum.

Ah ! I am pretty sure you are wondering what I am doing here, uh ?

Although scattered all over the country, we're a small group of french airsoft players who are really fond of the CADPAT. Issued of course, or at least Frontenac and other stuff sold at CP Gear, Dave's Surplus and so on, because we would not like the idea of insulting your country's camo by purchasing some cheap ugly knock-off.

Anyway, what am I doing here ? Well, I thought it was about time to register here and grab some precious pieces of informations I might not be able to find out by myself on the internet.

One last thing : my english is not too bad, but not that good either. Please be indulgent if I make mistakes. Thanks.

宜しくお願いします。

Okay, ridiculous antics aside, this is my

INTRODUCTION POST!!


Names Casey, y'all can call me Colt.
Yes, that is my real world handle as well.
I'm 19, almost 20, I live and work in Toronto.

I figure this is a logical first step to get in with the community.
I've been researching the game for 4-5 years now, and ever since I've been infatuated with the idea of being a part of it!

I'm not gonna bother posting a summary bio of myself - this is just a hello.
Figure that you'll be seeing me at games soon enough.
I'm a friendly guy-so hopefully we get along and good times will ensue!

See you on the field! Hopefully not down the sights of my rifle -plink plink-

Hello

Hi Everybody

I`m Robert. I am a member of the Canadian armed forces. I was a avid paintballer but where i live there is no paintball but there is airsoft so i`m starting that now. 1 quick question are there any age verification reps near Cold Lake, AB i checked the list and did not see one but i`m hoping list is old and needs to be updated

Hi bud, welcome to ASC. I'd recommend that you update your account so that people can see where you are from ( I know you said Mt). Since you are 24 I suggest you contact an age verifier and get verified. Being verified opens up all the retail and classified sections to you. There are games in the Montreal alrea almost every weekend during summer months and alot of games in the winter too. Hope to see you on the field.

Tom

Hi everybody.

Robert from Montreal here. Turning 30 in a couple of weeks, and recently became interested in airsoft (used to play paintball a few years ago). For now, I've only got a cheap "lamesoft" SS P226 springer from Walmart and I'm doing target practice indoors. When I'll get tired of abusing the gel target, I'll get AV'd on the forum, get some real gear and start coming to airsoft games in my area.

I must admit I'm not a big fan of full automatics and "spraying" the enemy with ammo, so I hope there are pistol-only (or semi-auto only) close-combat games out there. If not, no problem, I'll go with anything.

Cheers!

Hello!

My name is Jonathan I'm a Scot and have been airsofting for over five years now.

My better half is Canadian (and already on here!) she's had a Canadian load out for a while now including a C8 I built for her and decided to join her as I actually really like the gear myself (well that and her comments about me wearing multicam )

Got a set of cadpat with boonie and one of the CF vests from ebay. Was using my SAW M249 set up as a C9 yesterday but I also have a C8 project on the go all it needs is a inner barrel and one of the proper C8 metal bodies to replace the blank body that is on it now!



Thanks go to John (who you might better know as Scoutthedoggie on youtube! For taking the photo for me)

Hello everyone.
ScooterVauto (AKA {LSB}ScooterVauto)
My Name is Carmen (call me Carm)
42 Living in east Edmonton.
Ex- paintballer (.68 with a sterling Pump and Modded Tippman Prolite)
Bought a couple Clear springers out of PM hobby Calgary and took them,
the rounds they came with and 2 old paintballer out to My uncles farm and
had a blast.

Imagine 3x 40+ grown men, running around with full face paintball masks
and little clear plastic pistols, I bet my uncle laughed his butt off..
Quick note on the clearsoft line.. I really like my Colt double eagle, 300+ FPS..
heck Paintball Max field speed is max 299 FPS.
this little bugger shoots faster, straighter and farther then my Prolite hahahah

I came here to find out exactly what the canadian laws were about.
I wont lie, my objective is to eventually get 3 pistols and hang them on my wall.
well likely a sniper rifle (VSR-10 is a sharp little number).
And if the urge hits to have a little fun, snag my buds, grab some balls from the
local sporting goods store and head out to the Farm..

I do expect to head out to a local field just to see the grand picture of airsoft canada style.
But have no idea where to look, (question number 3 on my list of questions for
my future age Verification meeting this weekend )

Its a stone cold shame that we cannot import a 140 FPS TM EBB Delta, but
i can goto any hunting and fishing store and by a 417 fps .177 beretta...
Dam shame.....
You have got to know, the morning after the law changes.....
EVERY Honk Kong supplier of Airsoft is going to be Bank full and warehouse empty hahahahah
Have a great day everyone...
You'll find with time, I dont usually write small one line posts hahahah

Welcome to ASC Kory.

Accessories can be purchased from almost anywhere in the world from many online shops, as well as in country from local online retailers. As for a lower receiver; you will be unable to import one due to Canadian importation law. However once you are 18 you will be able to source one through this website retailer section.

Hey everyone!

My name is Alex (ok there are probably over 9000 of 'alex's here I bet) I live in Burnaby, British Columbia and I have recently started airsoft. I own a Sig552 (pretty accurate and good RoF despite the bad reviews) and 2 high cap mags. I am 18 and hoping to get AV'ed soon.

Not sure what else to add. Hope to get to know you all

one last thing: Are there anyone around where I live so I can get age verified?
