Default Airsoft Team

Some people expressed interest in an Airsoft team so here is a little information:

Minimum requirements:
AEG (see below - there is usually a chrono limit ex. 350fps)
4-6 magazines for AEG (low-mid capacity)
2 batteries for AEG
.20-.25 bbs (check the
Tactical vest/LBV (to store magazines, other equipment)
Boots
Eye protection (must meet ANSI Z87.1-2003 ballistic rating)
Dead rag

Optional items:
GBB pistol (see below)
BDU/ACU - depending on the scenario this might be a requirement
Optics
Commo gear

Local companies:
APD (Arizona Paintball Depot) - http://stores.apd-direct.com/Categor...tegory=AIRSOFT
Gearbox - http://www.gearboxairsoft.net/

Online companies
http://www.airsoftgi.com
http://www.airsoftextreme.com/content/


Example of a GBB (Gas blowback) pistol:
Sig P226:
http://www.airsoftextreme.com/store/...oducts_id=4538



AEGs (Automatic electric guns) primarily used in Airsoft:
M4 (or variant)
AK-47
G36
M249 (SAW)


Here is my opinion on some manufactures to check out, it is a good idea to read reviews/test before
spending your money.

Low price - (est $150-250)
Echo 1
A&K
Cyma
Dboys

Middle price to High (est $250-500)
Classic Army
Tokyo Marui (can run Middle/High on newer products)
ICS
G&G
G&P

High ($1000+)
Systema

Those are the prices for new gear...I would advise checking the classified on airsoftarizona. Guys that get out of it or upgrade their gear usually sell for 1/2 to 1/3 the price and usually have upgrades/accessories in the deal.

You don't have to buy BDUs, if you want to be OPFOR you can get away with very little. It's usually the guys that want to look like Delta, SEALs, etc. that spend the money. (Not saying it's right or wrong)


Here is a guy selling a set for $40:
http://www.airsoftarizona.com/forumb...6330&hilit=bdu

Ordered these a few weeks ago and lost some weight since then..They are a little big.

MC combat Coat is a Xl Regular and the Trousers are a Large Long.

Sizing: Large Long - Waist: 35 - 38 Inseam: 32 1/2 - 35 1/2
Extra Large Regular - Chest: 45 - 48 Height: 67 - 71 Sleeve: 23 3/8

Both are brand new, still with tags, still in the box!

Thought I would save someone the shipping. If these don't sell right away I am just going to send them back to BDU.com

$40 locally for each or $80 for the pair.





Here is an Echo SOCOM16 for $100

I'd be more impressed with this as a sport if it was played in nothing more than a jock strap and flip-flops... Just like you really don't want to catch a real bullet, you really don't want to get Airsoft-ed when you're virtually naked. I think it might force the game play into a more realistic exercise.

This is what is stopping you?

I have a few extra AEGs so if anyone wants to play let me know. You would need to have the other gear required, but I can help with this part.

have you ever played and been shot cory? it hurts A LOT.

back in the day, we used to find houses in neighborhoods that were halfway built and play in there. it was ridiculously fun, but you always had to watch out for the guy with the CO2 Desert Eagle... very painful. when everybody has cheapy spring shotguns/pistols, it kinda becomes like the California bank robbery shootout. cops (people with spring guns) hide, guy with Co2 gun shoots at them.


but i see your point, i just dont think there is any need for more than light t-shirts, maybe a light vest for equipment holding. tactical vest and what not are a little overkill!

I got shot borderline point blank by my own gas uzi back in the day. That gun wasn't really accurate worth a damn, but it didn't matter because of how fast it shot. Too bad it broke
