Playing Rainbowsix 3 Black Arrow live back in the day,( loved my c4 )
one of my clansman was showing the crew his mp5 and the discussion about airsoft came about. I mentioned a computer tech I knew ( aka Dirtbag ) had a g3 sg1 and my buddies all said that I should see if there's a filed of play ariound. At that time I didnt know a thing about airsoft and they said airsoft was alittle like the games we played online. I tracked down Dirtbag back in 2005 and the rest is history!

Randomly browsing the internet and discovering an alternative to paintball with MUCH more realistic guns. I decided to get AVed since the selection for airsoft on Craiglist is quite limited. :P

The love of beautiful firearms and ofcourse their airsoft counterparts which are much safer play things and much more fun to fondle.

I had always had an interest with firearms, probably video games from a young age :P

Anyhow, our local Army Surplus Store began carrying "Soft Air Guns", where my brother bought an XM8, and as soon as he had brought it home and began shooting at some cans in out backyard, i was HOOKED. Bought myself a crappy Crosman Gun, then a Firepower? AK-47 for about $50, the shitty thing broke quickly.
Moved on from there.

On a different note, can someone help me find the "how much have you spent on Airsoft" thread, i cant find it at all. Thnx

I remember friend getting me into airsoft.

Well, getting into... He was just blabbing something and he didn't really know shit about it, but they just opened the first AS shop in town and he went snooping around. Since me and other friend of mine are gun nuts, we were thrilled about it and I soon bought my first gun.

Aaah, those were the days

Just goes to show, people with brain damage are the real heroes.

Thought "this would be a great way to meet women". Boy, what a waste of time and money that was!

Started in the 80's with paintball. Stumbled on airsoft at the 1998 Hobby Show. That's where I met Poncho. From there it was the playing with the Kingston crew (STAT's, Salamanders, Dogs). From there I brought in Sha Do, Joker, and the rest of the Spectre crew ..... Great times!

I got onto ASC with the old guard when we graduated from Lynch's board.

I have always loved firearms and from a very young age I have been fascinated with ww2 history and the art of sniping. So I started to play paintball, that got boring and didnít offer enough of the whole package from a ballistics and physics point of view so I switched to airsoft and from the beginning a got hooked on sniper rifles. I guess really the role fit me perfectly I have great patience (for the most part) and I am just built for every application that the sniper fulfils.

I just stumbled across this site a months ago while looking to get back into airsofting after many many (many) moons.

As for who got me into the game and when...? That would be my cousins from Hong Kong (Dad's side). In 1978. Before airsoft became airsoft, and the guns were referred to as "BS" guns. No idea what the "BS" stood for. Single shot, spring powered, all (cheap) plastic manufacture, and firing little blue plastic pellets (shaped like the little conical pellet gun rounds, not BB shaped at all).

Shit-tons o' fun. Personal safety was waaaaaaay down the list of "Important Self-Preservation Tips for Life" (TM). Did I also mention this was back in the '70s...?

And yet, somehow I survived my childhood... more or less in one piece...

When I was a little kid (around 12 years old), i knew about airsoft guns because I would see them in Canadian Tire or Walmart. I went on youtube and searched up airsoft. Got many videos, and watched hundreds of them. Everything from games, CQB and MILSIM, reviews of guns, reviews or rules. It got me so interested in the sport/hobby because of the realism involved with airsoft. But I was 12 at that time, so lets face it, the chances of me playing at that time were super slim. Especially with parents who were obviously going to say no to buying me a "gun". So last year (I was 17), I bought a clear M4 from BassPro in Vaughn Mills. Shot around the house and made targets, LOVED EVERY SINGLE BIT OF IT. I turned 18 and officially picked up the sport. Went down to Ultimate Airsoft and had my first airsoft game I found this website a year or so after I discovered airsoft.
