Team Requirements

Post by Wyat Earp on Mon Dec 22, 2008 12:06 pm

Airsoft Team Requirements:

1. You must have a gun, or have sufficient funds to be able to rent or buy a gun for an upcoming event. Here are some good sites for Guns. Some good brands to look at are Classic Army, Tokyo Marui, G&G, SRC, A&K, Echo 1, JG, Cyma ( mainly M14’s). Most of these sites carry only quality guns. If you have questions about brand quality, feel free to ask me

www.airsoftgi.com
www.airsoftextreme.com
www.kastwayairsoft.com
www.trinityairsoft.com.
I have four rules when buying from an airsoft website.
1. Don't buy from a site that has an all black or predominantly black screen. ( this rule can be disregarded if you know the operator or seller on the site.)
2. Don't buy from foreign sites. This is any site outside the United States. While they may have better deals then U.S. based retailers, shipping will kill you, and if anything goes wrong, you're SCREWED!)
3. Don't buy from a site that sells anything other then airsoft guns or airsoft related accessories. If they sell boats, RC Cars, Beanie Babies, whatever, don't buy from them.
4. DON'T BUY FROM EBAY! The majority of airsoft related fraud comes from ebay. The regualation is sparce to nonexistence. If you buy from ebay and you get screwed, don't come crying to me. I warned you!


2. There currently isn't a standard team uniform, do to an innability to agree upon a certain pattern, however, so good ones to pick are a set of woodland and desert, and one color of your choice. The woodland and desert are good because they will allow you to go to a uniform specific Op even if one side is full, you have the uniform for the other. The third optional uniform is good for practice or when we have the option if using any camo we want. One third line choice is Multicam. Multicam ( MC) is a very effective pattern for playing in Texas. It conceals very well. Some people dislike it however, because of the price and becasue of the fact that it is not used by military units at the moment. However, many Special Operations Forces ( SOF) are currently using it.

Here are some site that you can look at for uniforms

3. You should have some basic information about tactics and military operations. In airsoft we use strategy a lot! That enables us to quickly overpower the enemy and let us win the game. If you want to know more about tactics, check out these links. We use both outdoor and CQB tactics on our team, so know info about both facets of tactics. Here are some links concerning tactics.

4. You must have a reliable backup weapon. You can pick this backup. Some people’s will be their pistol. Others can have another AEG as a backup. People like myself, have both. I recommend you use this setup. It works very well, but it can get quite expensive. I recommend you start with a gas pistol. Some people may disagree with me. Some people use electric pistols, which usually shoot full automatic, but have low fps. The other main type is CO2. These are very powerful pistols, and they somewhat defeat the purpose of the airsoft pistol. The purpose of the pistol is to be able to draw it when you get within 20’, because getting shot with 400 fps from under 20’ is not fun. Anyway, most CO2 pistols will shoot over 400 fps, therefore, this defeats the purpose of the pistol. The pistols I recommend are gas blow back pistols. These are realistic, the slide blows back and the fps is very good for pistol engagements. Some good companies are KWA, KJW, Tokyo Marui, and Socom Gear. Here are some links for pistols.

5. You shuld have tactical gear. That gear is usually in the shape of a vest. I prefer MOLLE gear, but some people like a chest rig. Here are some links to tac gear. MOLLE is the best because it is very versatile, and looks good. You can also get a cross-draw vest. This comes with a pistol holster built in, and magazine pouches already attached. This is a good beginner vest because it's cheap and comes with everything you need to get started. However, they are not as good as MOLLE because you can't add or detract any of the gear. The last type is LBV (Load Bearing Vest). This was primarily used during Vietnam, and works great for a loadout from that era. They are also cheap and can be found at most surplus stores. You can find most of these different vests at all airsoft retailers and also specailty tactical gear stores, even though the airsoft store versions are less expensive. One more thing on vests, do not buy it in black. You look like a total noob and it gives away your position. Some good gear brands are Tactical Tailor, Eagle Industries, Blackhawk, Pantac, OE Tech, and King Arms.

6. The last thing I want to stress is the importance of good sportsmanship. If you don’t play well with others, have trouble taking orders, or have trouble telling the truth, you really are in the wrong sport. This sport is made up of people who are of the highest moral code. If you don’t believe that you can uphold these values, then you will have problems. Also, this team is very committed to itself. We practice diligently, usually once a week. When we aren’t practicing, we will be at games. At these games, you may have to pay money to get in. This can add up. You will also have to buy more magazines. These mags are called midcaps. They usually only have about 100 bb’s. The reason that these are required is to add realism to the sport. In real life, you would not have 300 rounds in one M4 magazine. Therefore, you should buy midcaps. They usually are about $60 for 8, 100 rd magazines. Here's a link for some midacaps for your M4 http://www.kastwayairsoft.com/Products/MAG-M16-Series-Magazine-Box-Set-(130-Rounds)-New__MAG-M16BLK.aspx Anyway, be ready to spend money in this sport. If you don’t feel truly committed yet, you can borrow one of my guns. I also have extra tactical gear that you can test out.

I hope this helps anyone wanting to get started. Please feel free to comment and add to this.

#6 - High capacity magazines are allowed, but not reccommended as some of the larger, more "MilSim" op's do not allow them due to realism issues.
