David at Nato Command mailed in news of their latest upcoming event:
National Airsoft Tactical Operations is proud to present Operation: Midas Touch II, our 2nd Annual March of Dimes fundraising event. This will be an all day (12+hours) airsoft scenario to be held at Adventure Beach Scenario Paintball in Tabor City, NC (80+ acres). This event will have multiple missions for each team as well as special GPS based missions.
We believe March of Dimes is a very worthy cause and the money raised will help fund research to reduce birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.
Adventure Beach Scenario Paintball will donate a portion of each field fee, but would like to ask each player to join with us and make a donation as well. For each $5.00 donation to the March of Dimes, you will receive one additional raffle ticket, so you can increase your chances of winning a great prize and join us in supporting a very worthy cause.
We would like to thank our sponsors for their very generous support.

We also talked about advanced game concepts; how to step up the milsim level of your game on both the personal and community level. A great time was had by all.

New in from RedWolf Airsoft are some new M4 goodies:
Dear airsoft buddies,
We’ve got a couple of interesting new products out, the latest one is the DeepFIre M4 AEGs, which are now available to PRE ORDER. The DeepFire M4 AEGs were revealed only just recently at the IWA 2008 show in Germany last week at our booth, and we will be taking PRE ORDERS from today. All PRE ORDERS get 5% off the retail price.
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 26, 2008
The NEW DeepFire Full Metal M4 AEGs are available for PRE ORDER now! Available in 12inch MRF-CX-Carbine, 7inch MRF-C-Carbine and 7inch MRF-C-CQB forms.
DeepFire have previously only made accessories and of course the M72A2 Launcher and Grenades, so this marks a change in direction for the company. The gun is a combination of all the best parts from DeepFire, such as the Titanium Piston and Titanium Teeth as well as the other internal parts. The handguard is apparently made from German plastics not to mention the full metal body. It shoots 280fps. (photos) from DeepFire).
Just like the increasing popularity of Systema PTW guns, the trend of customising the PTWs have gained much popularity too. We have seen many photos of customers who have customised their PTWs to make their gun stand out from the crowd, and today we have got a NEW metal body kit for the Systema PTW M4/M16 series, complete with realistic trademarks.
G&P have released several new bits of kit today:
