Hello, new to Airsoft but have always played military style fps games on PC so I decided to buy a gun and see where it takes me and I will do everything possible to ensure that won't be in the back of a police car or an ambulance.

Serious jokes aside I wanted my first gun to be a rifle of quality, electric, suitable for the outdoors and BIG! I searched and searched almost settled on something that wasn't really what I was looking for when I finally found it on a US site that has "canadian permitted" AS guns for cross border passage.
I picked up a Classic Army M15 A4 Armalite full length rifle "Spartan Version".

I tested it out before having it ripped away for a month and it's everything I wanted, now I just need some people willing to stand on the business end of it sometime near the Belleville area. PM me if you are looking for mature players in that area. Cheers!

The name is Bootsma, Jordan Bootsma. I am 18 years of age, highly intelligent, superior at everything, (it comes from the Dutch heritage), and short. (I think it comes from the French bit of my ancestry. Napoleon was short, wasn't he?) On a serious note... I am pretty new to airsoft. I own a G&G Mp5. I am located in the Tillsonburg/London area of Ontario. I am completely deaf in one ear, and partially deaf in the other. I am legally blind in one eye, and pretty perfect in the other. (Now who wants me on their team?!) I am super busy and work a bunch, on top of school. I am headed off to university next year. Hopefully in Ottawa. I am an aspiring journalist in a time when the market for journalism is shrinking. It is unfortunate, however, I will succeed. I wish to take up airsoft as a serious side hobby. I also longboard. I am a slight adrenaline junkie. I need to be age verified. I will begin work on that shortly.

Can't wait to get started.

Bonjour! (I actually cannot speak French, and only took the required bit in highschool. It was a regrettable decision. My goal this summer is to work myself up to a level where I can have a casual conversation in French. It is a lofty goal, and unlikely, however, I will make the attempt.)

Good day folks!

Hi, I'm Jason. I live in Winnipeg and I'm 28. Fairly new here. Fairly new to airsoft as well. I haven't been to any games, But I'd definitely like to try it out. I do like target shooting. I've done a lot of trap shooting in my day and enjoy being able to target shoot in my back yard (thanks to airsoft guns). I've been doing a lot of research and I think I've found what I want. I'm now anxiously awaiting my age verification so I can check out the classifieds. I'd appreciate any advice on what to look for in a gun /gear.
I own you bum! I've got money for days!

Hi everyone

Ok so this should have been my first post but believe it or not (despite looking) I didn't see the intro thread until after I posted lol but, hey no ones perfect.

So my name is Bruce, recently moved to London, ON from the Toronto area and have finally decided to get in to this . Outside of this hobby I play hockey and drift. Before anyone asks... YES I've been drifting years before FnF3 came out haha. Been at it for almost 7 years now, had two Nissan Skyline's that I enjoyed as daily drivers and project cars. Currently no project car but hopefully next spring.

I'm 36 (though you wouldn't guess that looking at me, going to need multiple pieces of i.d to be verified I think lol), have two son's ages 12 and 7, live with my girl friend whom I love and currently work as a Security Officer for Securitas Canada but will be putting my application before Municiple/Regional Police forces soon.

That's a bit about me and I'm looking forward to meeting people on here and in person at local Airsoft meets.

Take care all,

I'm a Real Steel shooter who has been poking around here for a little while but finally decided to join up. As much as I like my toys, you can't really play around with them in the privacy of your home so I'm looking towards airsoft to get in some trigger time. Not looking to do any gaming or anything, just punching paper.

Strangely enough, my brother is pretty big into airsoft but not a member here, so it's up to me to get AV'd and start doing some "advanced shopping".
