I hail from Colorado.  Got an 80 acre retreat in the southeastern part with my nearest neighbor being 7 miles away.  Lots of varied species of wildlife and I think feral hogs wont be to far off.  Its a good place to be retired at.

Well Niko you mentioned a species that is NOT on my property.  Got plenty of rabbits, quail, turkeys and antelope, deer, bear and even elk show up from time to time.  On the down side is mice and with them bring the rattlers.   Got pinon pines and pinon nuts ankle deep but no peach trees LOL.

  Niko it is a great place to kick back and relax......as far as an airsoft event.  About a third of the property is a high flat bluff with many pinon pine.   Several ridges run off of the bluff forming canyons, gullies and aroyos.  On the lowers areas are shallow gullies and arroyos with nasty cholla cactus with needle long tines that go into your flesh easy but tear out a bit of you when you pull them out.  Its almost like an Afghanistan looking place.  Desert camo would be a must.

gcw thats a onery looking friend you have there..LOL.  I get along ok with the rattlers.  We've got an agreement.   They take care of the mice (which may carry the Hanta virus) and I leave them alone unless they become cantankerous or try to encroach on my bivouac area.   Its a good arrangement.  I had one that was big as a mans forearm and over 3 1/2 feet long (Prairie Rattlesnake, Crotalus viridis viridis) coiled up under a short 2 foot long chunk of a heavy timber beam.  I actually placed my bare hands under that timber to pick it up.   Lucky for me it was cold in the morning.  That snake moved under that timber during the night.  You let your guard down and thats when you'll get surprised.  Actually Colorado has five species of rattlesnakes.  I have one could have 3 of those species but have just seen one.  Rattlers make a little noise....tarantulas wont hurt you like the rattlers but they're sneaky and scare you.  And the scorpions are something else all together.

So....you still wanna play?

That's a dark phase Timber Rattler, Crotalus horridus.  He or she, I think is was a female, was loud with the rattle, but never stuck.  It was about 4 1/2 feet - 5 feet long.  It was not the biggest I've seen but the only one we have handled.  I really love those animal and have to tell you it will make you feel, as I am sure you know, very alive to experience one first hand.

Geoffrey, from Hong Kong. I'm 13 and am in secondary school.
Airsoft in HK is basically divided into Indoors and outdoors. I play CQB, which is also what most people plays. Legal limit for airsoft is 2 joules, which is about 450 fps (rough estimate), or you'll need a firearm permit. Most cqb fields allow semi only. Fair enough, as spraying wouldn't do much good indoors and it's a bit too much for the recieving party.
For outdoors, most people play in either shrubland or urban. Full auto is permitted, and although the legal limit is the same as cqb, very little people actually care and most just tune their guns up to like 5 joules. Ouch.
Buying airsoft is not a problem over here. In fact there's an entire street- Kwong Wah St in mongkok dedicated to airsoft. There are also stores like redwolf and un which are trustworthy and reliable. Most are easily accesible. However one needs to be aware of what they're buying when visiting Kwong Wah street in mongkok. I've wasted a good grand (of HK dollars, equivalent to 150 USD, again a rough estimate) on c*** Chinese guns that only worked during testing. I've learned my lesson.
Overall, HK is not a bad place if you're interested in airsoft. No age limits, no orange tips. Yep.

Hello everyone, I'm from Monterey, CA. Northern California, so there's a handful of good airsoft fields up here, don't believe we have it nearly as good as southern though! One great thing about my "backyard" is its the nearby former Fort Ord military base where once a month at least a few hundred of us get together from all over and get to play games in the former barracks. Think there's 30+ 2 story buildings and most of which we can use to our best ability outside the really screwed up ones. It's a lot of fun and if anyone is in California on here an hasn't heard of it check out Cqbchallenge.com. Anyway, that's all for now.

I'm Luke, I was born and raised in New York City and I love it here- albeit airsoft is illegal here. I play in Long Island and store my guns there. I sometimes also go to NJ for outdoor events. Yeah. Haha
