Hey there, my name is Stefan and I'm a 43 yr old kid (according to my wife). I've worked in the bush my entire career and have been an avid hunter for most of my life.

I just picked up my first airsoft pistol (KSC P226r) a few months ago and was playing around with it while working out in the bush. This caused me to recently pick up a used AEG rifle (SRC HK416) the other week and am looking to get into the game a little more.

I've been lurking around the boards here for a bit trying to read up as much as I can and have already gone to get AV'd here in Edmonton and am just waiting for it to get processed now I guess.

Hey all, Rich here. Totally beyond new to airsoft. Mostly been reading forum posts to educate myself more on this sport. Used to play paintball about 20 years ago. Wouldn't mind dropping by a event to watch sometime.

Daniel here back from the dead. Age 22, started to get some gear together again. I started from scratch, but I'm going to be rocking a cute Kwa FPG in the local Vancouver area.

Hello all, have been shooting airsoft guns for some time and am looking at getting into it more and more. Joining this forum seemed like a good place to begin, I hope I can learn much from you all.

Hello ASC!

Jordan here, Balgreth works tho. Use to it from playing MMO's.

So to start off, I've been doing a lot of "chairsofting" i guess you guys/gals(?) call it doing research into the sport. I have never played it before, tho i have played paintball from time to time (didn't really care for it tbh.)

A friend of mine that i work with use to airsoft awhile back, it came up in topic at work the other day (I have been interested in starting to play for awhile, just never was financially capable to condone spending the cash at the time.) I recently just purchased a side arm from him that he had laying around.

I've been reading a ton trying to figure out a decent starting platform. (Clothing/tac gear i have kind of covered with some military surplus stuff that was used for hunting gear that i have had laying around the past while.

I know I'd eventually want to venture into trying out a VSR-10 ( *cough* i know another "sniper", DMR would be much more suitable/adaptable) but, I know they require a lot of $$$ for upgrades. Plus trying to research on which Clones are "good" compared to the original TM just seems like a whole lot of work before even getting started.

Some suggestions for a "decent" reliable gun that may be worth upgrading or stepping up from would be appreciated. M14's? G3's (not JG plastic?If they exist?) trying to avoid the m4/m16 variants.(everyone and their lil bro seems to have one-.-)

Lastly, I'm From the Kitchener/Waterloo area and was wondering what the outdoor/Milsim scene is like around my area? I know of 2(?) places near London that do stuff but i don't know of any others.

Hey everyone,

Stan here, 22 and used to be more active in the world of paintball.
Totally new to airsoft (just have 2 cheap spring ones) and looking to purchase my first gun on a tight budget to try out the sport (looking at a G&G CM most likely) or some used gun (just waiting to get AV'ed), mostly because I have to also handle my student loans as I will be graduating soon.

Looking forward to eventually meeting you guys on the field sometime.

Hey people,

Airsoft noob here, got myself an AEG and working on getting some safety gear and getting age verified. I'm in Mississauga and completely new to airsoft. If any other Mississauga noobs want to have a small private game to get to know the sport with me feel free to message!
