Hi all
My name is Dave just dropped in from Ireland to see how things run on this side of the Atlantic.
I'm ex military ex police and working in the field of Criminal Psychology.
I've been interested in airsoft and real steel for a LONG time, I have a collection that's out of control (but hey why not).
That's about enough ranting out of me.
Hello from Ireland
Dia dhuit na heireann

P.S If anyone is passing my part of the world you can verify my age, I'm too old to die young if that gives a clue to my age

hio my names is Magic im from the west side of Toronto and am 26 and i always have held an interest in everything Hunting/firearms. I grew up with a strong military influence due to family friends and generations of farmers and hunters in my family. Unfortunately i never got the blessing from family to join the military so now im just a plain old civilian looking for a fun and active hobby. Im not gona tell you guys everything about myself because what is a Man without his secrets lol. One thing i will share is that this is I think the 3rd or 4th forum i have ever been a part of so please don't be offended if i don't reply within a couple of hours or even a few days .
i have lots of questions about the sport but i wont ask any here cuz i don't want ppl telling me Noob.... Use the search option... learn how to use internet...ect. lol i don't have the longest attention span so i tend not to sit here and go over every page of the forum and i just believe in face to face engagements (guess im old-school like that).
so hope to see and meet some of you at an event soon and get age verified so i might be able to get some gear and enjoy some good times.
stay safe and play hard everyone!

Hi all!

Hi everyone!

I'm new to airsoft (have yet to play a match) but very interested in it. I'm overseas at the moment in Japan (sure wish importing airsoft wasn't impossible!) and a bunch of my friends in Toronto have taken up the hobby.

Looking forward to giving it a good go to see what they're all so obsessed about!

I've done some paintball in the past, but it was a bit too, uhm, messy (in many ways, not just the actual tags) for my liking, so I have a feeling that this will be all that I was looking for in tactical gaming!

heya I'm steven, I'm pretty new to airsoft but very interested in it so far. I hope to become more involved in the community, granted that seems to be rather hard here on the south end of vancouver island. hope to be talking to more of you in future, especially an age verifier!

Hello everyone. I'm James. I've been out to watch a game before, but never played a real game before. I live on campus at the University of Guelph, but also spend the occasional weekend at home in Ayr. I've tried paintball before, but it was too unorganized and saturated in twelve year olds with no trigger discipline so I'm hoping airsoft will be a bit better (especially with real cap magazines). If anyone knows fields near here other than Flag Raiders let me know.

greetings Noble Citizens of ASC!

My name's Roberto. Ive been lurking around the forums for about 3 years (joined march 25, 2008) and now since its about time for me to participate.

the reason why I signed-up for ASC is because back then the only option I knew when buying airsoft was through ASC's classifieds. I got 'age verified' late last year. lol

I am in the healthcare field (work in nursing home) and still planning my course of action which is going back to school as a fine arts student.

I am an art guy. I DRAW ALOT. I draw basically everything (that is whatever I see or deemed interesting) here's a sample (NSFW)

I will still keep my status here as a lurker and will lurk moar.

other than everything that I said, ASC rocks!

Take care y'all and God Bless

Hey all, kinda late but the names Josh. I actually got interested into airsoft a year ago when I visited a few shops in the Philippines. Just thought I'd get back into it now. Hoping to get verified real soon and invest in some gear so I can get into the action

Been looking at Airsoft for awhile, and my interests were kindled as of late, and I have been spending a couple of days gathering up information and friends alike.
Trying to find a place nearby has been quite difficult and I decided that you fine fellows were a good place to start off. So uhm... Hello, Hi, Howdy, How are you?
Pretty new to Airsoft don't know a whole lot, but am immeasureably interested, the only sad things is from what I've read so far it's nearly impossible to ship guns into Canada, and I gotta wait another two years just to get a taste of the action T.T.
Regardless hello everybody! this is Rurik, Necrosphere, or Landrew wishing you all the best of luck out in the fields. May your finger never waver, and your bb's strike true. Also dat block-o-text ^^ Totally inspired by Thomas Bergersen - Aura - (Track 1/19) [Illusions] - YouTube whilst writing this up!
