are you talking about woods games or cqb indoor games here?
-I mean, in your experience of being hosed or seeing hoserz-

I haven't seen it a lot recently around where I play, it's nice.

I encounter it every now and then playing woods games. People with SMG's or assault rifles use highcaps with no trigger control. One game I played nearly everyone on the other team used either AK's or G36's with twin hicaps fully loaded, and they all played like each one of them had a SAW.

The border wars carpool will have a bus that stops right by my house, and even if i don't play well or am pushed aside for better equipped players, its still valuable experience to say the least.In addition, i was never seriously considering bringing a walmart AEG to the BW, i was just toying with the idea. next week im buying an Aftermath Broxa for my main gun, and id probably bring my walmart M4 to an event as a spare. I am still trying to get my parents to take me to that event next week over in whatsitsface place, i forgot the name, ill read it later >.>
Take a bus?

It would be really beneficial to play a few games and understand how airsoft works before jumping into a big Milsim event. The event costs $120 or do, you really feel like bringing a gun that costs less than that and expect to be competitive and have fun?

If you're getting verified DO NOT BUY A BROXA, you will be able to get better guns just have some fuckin patience and wait, your Broxa will quickly be up for sale in the classifieds once you realize you don't want it and nobody is gonna buy it as they can easily be had cheaply from Basspro

Friendly Noob Advice

As a noob...jumping into the Border Wars Series will certainly put you in a "baptism of fire" very quickly as you'll have the opportunity to participate with a lot of dedicated and skilled folks within the sport.

As Brian has said earlier....its the effort and dedication you have to win the fight rather than simply the equipment load out. You play with what you can afford.

It is suggested that you attend the TTAC 3 convention in February to get a better idea of what the sport offers as it will also be a one-stop shopping opportunity for you.

If you're going to enlist in BW III - continue to monitor the threads for updates and you should decide which side you'll enlist in. Once you've decided, the respective commanders will post additional items of interest and/or instructions in addition to the BW III rules.

This year BW III will involve all day fighting on Saturday with a dusk/night engagement as well as additional fighting on Sunday so be prepared to give it your best. As a Milsim, we feel you'll be challenged and perhaps stressed a little as things can change quickly just as in real theatre action.

Don't feel intimidated to experience this event but be prepared to fight with some very experienced soldiers on both sides. If you're going to be at the convention, drop by the Force Recon table to learn more on BW III.
