Nice Topic^^

I'm from germany, we have a hard regulated law as far as airsoft is concerned.

The gun has to be proved by our PTB (physics and technics institute), marked with the 'F' in a pentagon also caliber markings and importer or dealer! Then we are not allowed to shoot full auto or burst, every gun is cut back. Lights and Lasers are also forbidden, dummys are ok.

You see, still we have fun with this^^

I'm form spain, and im 21. Also I live in a small Islanad, majorca (aprox 50x40km)
In spain we had a pair of federations, and also hundreds of clubs and associations.
In my island I stimate the number of players around 300-400 and I know about 8 fields.. so I believe that this sport has good spread.
In my field we play every sunday; 1 of two weeks skirmish, battlefield(the computer game ;)) type(fast respwn, no ammo limit, no live limits...) just for fun, and the other week we play milsim. We use to play Marpat, surpat, multicam and desert vs woodland, civiliand and the rest of sorts. In my field there is around 30 partners and around the double (or more) for milsim events.
Our fps limits are:
pistol/shotgun <300fps 0m
AR full auto <350fps 5m
AR semi/only <400fps 10m (probably in a few months this category will dissapear)
support <400fps 15m
Electric sniper(DMR) <450fps 20m
Bolt sniper <550fps 30m

In spain there is no offcial regulation of any kind (no orange tips, not markings problems...), its easy to get our replicas and lots of accesories and upgrades, but they are very strict at customs border.

PS: sorry for my poor english, I belive that read and post at this forum can help to improve it.

Greetings people, James from the south west of Ireland.

Airsofting bout 3 years now.

Airsoft is only really taking off now over here, very little was known about the sport, but its growing and growing fast. All our guns be it aegs, pistol's, springers or gbbr's can not fire above 328fps with .20g (like japan). If it does fire above its considered a firearm.

Hello guys, I'm from Carrollton, GA, USA. I'm 14 years-old. I first started playing airsoft in the summer of 2011. I started off with a Crosman Pulse r76 AEG rifle.  And now I've upgraded to a KWA M4 SR10(thank god).  I use to play among my friends only in my backyard but now I play at a local airsoft field in Newnan, GA called Airdog.  The FPS limit there is 420 FPS for AEGs.  My buddies an I decided to start an airsoft team.  We're trying to get more serious into the sport, it's kinda hard since we're such a young team(14yo, 14yo, 14yo, 14yo, 14yo, 13yo, and a 12yo) but we still go hard on the field ery day and plan to for several years. Airsoft is pretty awesome, I love doing it. Peace out.

Hi everyone, I am from Houston Texas. I have been a KWA (Kill Win Awesome) fan for the past couple of years. As my forum name denotes I am a lover of everything GBB. I fell in love when my friend switched to gas guns, and I haven’t looked back ever since. I once took part a spare gearbox, and I never put back together lol. I fortunately can find my way around most GBBs otherwise I can search how to fix most of the common problems. see you on the forums! :D

Hey everyone, my names is Luis "Frost" R. and 15 years old. Was born in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico but currently live in North Cali, about 2 hours from AEX Sac, CQB City and Airsoft Battlegrounds. Proud leader of GALAXY Airsoft!

Have been airsofting since 2009. Started off playing in the forest with spring guns, owning a Co2 gun got you a lot of respect. Had a small team called Operation Airsoft in which I was leader. In Feb 2011 moved to a MK36c which was my first AEG. New gun meant new gametype, transitioned from Field
to CQB because none of my friends wanted to play with me anymore because of my gun. First time I played at my first real field was April 17th, 2011. Felt like a real noob to be honest! I went in with a WalMart paintball mask with no gear whatsoever. Also saw some Milsim guys, and of course I had to look like them.
On June 2012, I finally got my first blowback pistol. Got to use it the week after at ASBG, got a couple kills and was super happy :) Also I got a addition to my team, new member called Scorpio. He owned a KWA KM4A1, and owned the team mask that we had chosen a few months ago (Save Phace Lazarus). That was when the team kickstarted. By then we had 6 members: Frost (Leader; Me), Reaper, Captain, Nuke, Nova and Scorpio. We had changed our name to GALAXY about a year before that because it wasn't as difficult as the last name and sounded cooler. On November 3rd, we actually played a lot more like a team. We all had a vests and uniforms, we used legit tactics, and overall did better. End of November I ordered a KWA SR10, greatest choice I had made in airsoft! The team has since then been more MILSIM. Scorpio and I play with midcaps only, Nova started to play with more tactic, I was planning on building Magpul CQRs for Reaper and Captain, Scorpio had a KWA M226, everything was going well! February 2nd this year will be the first time we play at CQB City. Really excited as we will be taking a friend of mine to see if he likes airsoft as well, and it's a new field for all of us with more tactics to play!

I would let your friend use the cqr if you get it on time, a better gun is a lot more fun to play with ;p

Hey guys.  My name is Miles, I'm 15, from New Jersey.  I started airsoft in I think 2010.  I play mostly private games in woods my friends own or at an abandoned construction sight which we have the town's permission to use.  One of our player's dad is a state trooper so we had a few connections too ;)  As of right now I own a KWA SR10, M9 PTP, and an MP7.  I was never overly into the sport until about this time last year, when I saved up for my SR10 and retired my King Arms M4.  My team doesn't exactly have an official name.  Everyone usually just calls us the KWA squad since most of us use at least one lol.  We have 8 regular members including me and about 6 other people who show up every now and then.  As of right now out of our 8 regulars there are 15 KWA guns in active duty :)  Three SR10s, an SR7, two M4A1s, one SR12, and the rest are M226s and M9s.  We don't have a uniform per se, but everyone uses an M4/M16 and wears either multicam or all green with a battle belt.  So that's us.

So, Hi, My name is Devin G. I am from the planet Earth, heard of it? Ok, serious now. I'm from USA, Kansas.
And I got interested into airsoft about 2 years ago. Then I was too young or didn't have enough money to really get a gun. One of the main reason was cause i bought a truck right then and had to make payments.
I have paint-balled a bit, and it is pretty fun, although to me there seems to be some things that paintball lacks that airsoft has, and the main one is realism.
So, I got a KWA MKIII about 8 months ago, why I didn't get a rifle first I dunno, it was stupid. But now I'm working on getting all of my gear and am getting a KWA CQR MOD-1 soon and upgrading that for field use.
So, hope to be looking around of this forum a bit more and ask some questions about upgrades and stuff.

Just noticed a lot of people here are younger than I thought..
And DG, you're doing good, I remember how it was for me getting my gear. I had to get different vests because the ones I had were either too thick, too big, or I ended up not liking them. Have a Condor Cummerbund PC right now, it looks cool but it's a big vest for me, suprisingly. I remember being kinda overweight a few years ago, and a few days ago I asked one of my friends who's really skinny and does sports how much he weighs, and I weigh just 10 more pounds than him. Airsoft is the best exercise because I didn't even notice it as exercise ;)

Anyways, back to the gear, I have a ok vest for a while but I plan on getting a Pantac RRV soon, and now that I actually have an M4 as a main instead of a G36c, and since I want to go as milsim as possible, I need to get mag pouches and a dump pouch >_< And boots...

Hi!

Greetings from Sweden!

So as stated, I'm from Sweden, to be more precise a "big town" of 140 000 inhabitants (Yes this is one of the biggest cities in Sweden...) called Linkoping.

I've been airsofting for about 2 years now, enjoying the hobby like crazy, first gun I bought was the KWA KMP9R, oh the hours of joy!
Second gun the KWA SR5, tweeked it like crazy, best damn gun I've ever run.

Anways, in Sweden we have a bit more strict gun laws, than you guys in the states. We don't allow people under the age of 18 to run around with airsoft guns, and the guns are almost treated like real firearms by the owners.
We have CQB limits of maximum 350 fps (110m/s) maximum amount of JOULES you are allowed to have in a gun (though not in the sport) is 10J before it counts as a real firearm. Usual maximum of limit is 200 m/s with a .2g bb. That also results in a minimum of 40m safety distance... No auto guns above 140m/s aswell.

We also don't require the orange cap, wich I'm really grateful of! And many know Sweden's airsofter to be Hardcore MilSim players, wich is true... (I play in a team consisting of a bunch of friends and we use the Surpat from SRVV.org and play like the FSB and MVD)

The sad part is that KWA is not a big brand in Sweden, neither is TM etc... The biggest brand by beginners and non-techs is the ActionSports Games (ASG (Rebranding company)).

But there's a lot of games out in the woods in Sweden! Closest CQB arena is about 1 hour, 1hour and a half away from my town... So yeah! Dedication to this life style is a must if you want to play in Sweden!

Hello everybody! I'm from Ashland, Oregon however I am currently just over the hill going to school in Klamath Falls at Oregon Tech, looking to get my Manufacturing Engineering Technology degree. Anyhow, I played paintball before airsoft had really exploded here so my 'wargame' experience was at least sufficient before I found the glory that is mil-sim airsoft. Of course I went through each level of guns, from clearsoft guns to cheap chinese clones to slightly better chinese clones to where I am now: A shameless KWA whore :P

Only in the past few years has airsoft been commercially viable here in southern Oregon, as some new fields are popping up and more people are investing in the game. Generally our FPS/safety limits are the OPLCMSS standards, however it does vary slightly from field to field. <300-350fps means CQB worthy, 350-400fps has a 20ft safety kill range, 400-450fps is restricted to semi-auto only with a 40ft safety kill range, and 550fps is the general bolt action limit with a 60ft safety kill range. Sometimes exceptions are made with appropriate safety rule changes too. The main fields tend to make games friendly for newcomers, with unlimited respawns and no magazine restrictions etc. while the more serious players tend to go out to the hills somewhere and play more tactical and competitive games. Personally I wish there was a place that would have GBBR and real-cap games, or mid-cap at the very least. My team, Mandalorians, is still growing but we are already at an effective level anyway. We try to attend as many of the OPLCMSS games as possible, however money can be unfriendly and school/work schedules can be rigid.

My current goal is to be the 'guru' of gas guns for my area, as that may promote their use just a bit more. Hell, it'd be cool to do some engineering for an airsoft/tactical company in the future. I hope to see more of you around at games and in the forums!
