Hey peeps,
I am usually called Josh, which makes sense because that is my name after all. Anyways, I thought I should make some posts as I wait for a response from an AV'r. I live in Stratford, I have yet to actually go airsofting anywhere, but I'd like to get out to some games at Flagraiders somepoint somewhat soon, I thought it would be a good idea to get a gun off the classifieds first as I only have an Aftermath Lycaon, which I wish I would've paid the extra $$ and got something better. Live and learn I guess

I'm not new to airsoft but I have not been out to play.
I have fired AEG's GBB's and BA but do not personally own one.
I have lots of gear but not a first line rig.
I am an Airsoft Widow.

Hello All! and a few possible questions.

Per the forum/new member rules...

Hi, Steve here. I'm just getting back into milsim after a long, long lull (close to 20 yrs). Originally got interested back in 1977-78 when spring guns were just coming out and they fired plastic pellets (the ones shaped like the Crossman pellets). Moved over to paintgun combat during the 80's, and milsim with BBs in the early 90's before putting it all aside for other commitments (university studies).

Now getting back into the sport, and can see that it's matured further that I ever expected, both in technology and community!

Thank GOD for the internet.

Connections: looking to find an age verifier within a 1-hr drive of Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario. I have not looked at the AV board to find one yet, but will after this posting.

Connections II: also looking for a club or group in my local area (Waterloo Region and surrounding areas) to potentially join. Any leads would be appreciated.

TM/CA storefronts: Wow, trying to find a TM/CA dealer is almost like trying to find hen's teeth. Anyone know a reputable dealer? Other manufacturers I'm looking at includes RCS, VFC & Ares, but I'm not familiar with their reliability/durability histories. My preference is for guns that have high reliability, and as much metal as possible. (No, I'm not an elitist - I believe in buying things once, and keeping it in service for years. Long-term cost savings is more important than lower up-front costs, imo.)

Personal weapon choices: SCAR, HK416 & G36.

Oh, and Thanks for Reading! See y'all in the forums!

Yo guys, just thought I'd say hi. I registered because I saw a couple of people had some really good FR/MARSOC kits and I am working on one myself.

I'm Kyle, 17 in 2 months 2 days lol. My friends call me the emo kid (or child) because of my long hair and general lack of emotions . I started paintballing at about 12, then found airsoft while looking for a realistic paintball gun, and been addicted ever since. I Game on PC and Xbox, and I mountain bike whenever I get a chance. I also play bass guitar. Looking forward to the day when I can get age verified and come out to a game, until then I will slowly go insane

Hi folks,

I'm Israsar, real name is Simon. Most of my life (39 years) I spent in military service in Russia, later in Israel. So army is integral part of my way. Until CF will find my place in the system, I play with paramilitary games and airsoft likely to be the best.
I own AI L96 rifle and will support any canadian team with sniping.
Dixi. :snipe:

A new old(er) guy.

Hello everyone! My name is Kim and I have played a few informal airsoft games with lousy wally world guns and a bunch of good friends..time to UPGRADE! Still mostly a newbie though.

I've been doing lots of research on retailer websites, the youtube stuff, and my (relatively local) Edmonton forums, and finally ran across this one. Will definitely need to get A/V'd soon and looking to purchase my first AEG and some kit. I've already found most of my safety gear and now its time for the fun stuff. Looking forward to chatting with ya all, and hopefully soon shooting at ya too.

Name: Kim
Callsign: Varjeal
Age: (Born 1973 I really don't wanna type the actual number)
Prefered Style of Play: whatever it takes to shoot the other guy and not get hit
Location: Camrose, Alberta
Gun: cheap garbage at the moment, but truly addicted now.

My name is Paul. I live in Markham, ON.

I'm 43 and have no experience at all with airsoft.

I do have years and years of experience with other forms of combat sports, so I'm likely not a total wank. I guess we'll see, but I'll try to keep my expectations low.

I'll likely pick up a gun and gear and give this a shot.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Kyle, I am 18(as of today!). I am an ex paintballer, Iíve grown board of it over the last 5 years of playing so I am now looking to find a new sport to fulfill my military interests.And I got board of the mess. Ever since I was young I have loved everything military, so the milsim aspect of airsoft has drawn me to it. Another interest of mine is going shooting real steel, I donít have my Pal yet (soon as school is out I will be getting it) but my dad does so I take every chance I get to get out and shoot. Its one of my favorite pass times, so airsoft is just a no brainer haha.

I already have a AEG, just waiting on a replacement switch as mine was defective. Hopefully its back up and running within the next few weeks so I can get out and play!

My name is Phil. I'm 32. I have an interest in airsoft, but I am completely new to it. My main focus at this time concerning airsoft is shooting videos, short films and etc... using realistic looking airsoft guns. Essentially youtube videos that are comical in nature or simply cool to watch.

Essentially I'm acquiring many Airsoft guns that are not working or broken (not visually broken) to use in videos. More on that later once I get age verified.

If you are in Montreal and interested in such things, do not hesitate to drop me a line. We're always looking for people willing to participate in our videos, provide props or costumes and etc...

Take care.
