Do you know how many teams were scouting you when you first started?! You were like a draft pick or something!! Deathsniper was our recruiter back then and was told (well asked is more like it) to get you

Mister B did it...

I went to college with Mister B. I don't exactly remember how it happened but he told me about airsoft while we were discussing paintball. He showed me a couple pictures of games he attended.

After college, in 2007, I went with him to Action 500 a couple of times then eventually to the Rawdon event and I signed up at the same moment on ASC to learn more about the sport. However, last summer we ended up working for the same company and then the airsoft discussions came back. That's how I decided to buy my own AEG last december.

Sort of...

April 2005- I was doing a web search on the FN P90 ( the gun interested me) and up popped information on Airsoft Replicas... and I was immediately intrigued. The second link on the list was to ASC.

I'd been out of the Army at that point for 13 years
Same story, POSSIBLY even the P90 I was looking into as well (I was a P90 nut then), registered here on ASC and lurked till 18, though I bought my first gun from 007 (P90) at 16 with parental permission but it never left the house, sold it to buy an AK and my first game was a night game with the GHOSTS, hooked to the game since.

I credit the GHOSTS, I've since heard nightgames aren't the best for a first game, but I loved it, I attribute the fact to the hosting skill of team GHOSTS.

Love you ASC :3

When in France in 2001 for school exchange, while walking down a street in Grenoble, saw a store selling heavy weaponry. When in there with a lot of curiosity and was wandering how come you could get a M16 in France? It was my first date with airsoft! Got hook

When i was 18, (2005) my buddy and I bought these el-cheapo walmart berettas. My trigger broke after a few days and instead of me getting a new one, i decided that i could fix it. So I was on the web looking for replacement parts (of course there were non) and I stumbled upon ASC. Hoping I'd find help fixing this el-cheapo gun, I joined and then came to realize I had a POS gun and found the world of airsoft.

I came accross two P99 and P99c springers in a Turkish pawn shop in Berlin. Me and a friend grabbed one each, and the plinking began. In a not-so-bright moment, we brought them back through customs (they made it), got a couple of other people hooked on the idea, and made some orders through buyairsoft. Then I came across ASC and armyissue pretty much at the same time...started lurking online and in Jeroon's shop alot, organized a couple of events outside of the ASC community, slowly got pulled in, and now I'm counting pennies to see if I have enough for a field fee and a bag of bastards. Jeroon, sorry for eating all your candy. I'm better now, promise

Got myself into airsoft after pellet guns and created a shitstorm and then turned out a massive ban to members. LOL
Greylocks at the time was alive.
Carpooled with Jaaks and his buddies to my first FR game.

Buddy from work dragged me into paintball in 1991. Last parent had just died year before, seemed like good therapy. Started buying PB mags... in one of them, read about this thing that was happening in Japan called airsoft. About seven years later, just before the replica ban, walked into a store downtown called Spy vs. Spy. They had airsoft guns, first time I ever got to hold one... but were still too pricy for me. (I was renting in the city, while still paying taxes and utilities for the homestead.) Many years later bought a clear AEP from a local gun store... fun, but didn't get much use. At least I could shoot it in my basement.
A few years back, at a local arms show, I saw this silver springer on one of the tables. Figgered out what it was pretty quickly, decided to get it out of circulation. Twenty bucks later I had a bit of a mystery on my hands... couldn't figure out who made the darned thing. Did some web searching, one of the links was ASC. The rest is very expensive history... ;->

IIRC, I first lurked on ASZ and Sgt. Lynchs cross ring something or other site, which eventually led me to one of the first incarnations of ASC.

Learned that it was best to just lurk for the two years before even posting anything. Today's flamers are Bic lighters compared to the old school vets

Ahh Lynch, I will never forget that fucker complaining about all us pussies not stepping in a certain puddle at Flagraiders and when his turn came that little fucker slipped in up to his elbows but if I remember correctly he managed to save his smoke from getting ruined. Or Cooper licking up the grease from a Wendy's burger wrapper for about 2 bucks and some change, that's some desperate shit right there!

Was delivering pizza at pizza hut a few years back, talking to the other drivers and one of them said he plays "airsoft"... what the hell is that? I say. So he brings me out to the empty parking lot, late at night and pops his trunk. Under the street light, He pulls out two aluminum cases and reveals the twin pistols within.. it felt like something from a movie, lol. ever since, i've been devoted (as much as possible, which isn't much) to airsoft. I thought the pistols were cool, until I saw the rest of his collection AUG's, M16's, AK47's, spetznatz', and a variety of pistols, not to mention the players own guns... I was hooked

ASC was no more than a google search away
