Pictures of you in the field or at a game

Are you guys all ex-para 33lima? :)

 

No we're not paras! But site operator Sam and several regular players including myself are ex-forces (mostly local Army regts, Regular and UDR or TA, but including RAF Regt, R Sigs etc).

 

We did have an ex-3 Para guy up on Sunday for his first visit having seen our stand and display on Armed Forces Day and he seemed thoroughly to enjoy what he saw.

 

The regulars at Foxtrot 58 are organised into (currently) 3 platoons with an "SNCO" in charge (cadres rather than full platoons). Each platoon is "based" on an inf regt and wears its headgear - 1 Platoon Royal Marines Commando, 2 Platoon Royal Irish Regt, 3 Platoon, which I got allocated, the maroon machine. We emphasise team play and the sides on each day tend to be organised around the platoon cadres, with a trained soldier leading and able to provide a more realistic experience and helping people learn and apply reasonably realistic tactics, while still having fun. We're conscious that some people object to airsofters "wearing stuff they're not entitled to" but don't overdo it and think of it more as a respectful homage to the people who do it for real - as some of the regulars have done, and others still do.

what the heck are you doing in that first pic ?

He's firing from the ear obviously - just like most airsofters fire from the hip ;)

Frankly, weird poses are often seen in danish airsoft, and I can't say I'm surprised.

With those ROFs and muzzle velocities I'd be scared as hell and trying to minimize the chance of being hit myself as well :P

Me @ The Asylum, Kidderminster.

 

*snips*

Liking those pictures mate, definitely has that 'almost looks real' element to the kit. Any chance of a kit/guns list? There's a couple of bits that are quite interesting.

Whats with the helicopter?

 

Well, we rescued a teammate who was wounded and captured, so we called in a CASEVAC from our air support; it was just a two man bird so the gunner joined our squad. Isn't that what you would do?

>> securing extraction point

>> extraction point has a helicopter actually taking off

 

Jealous!

 

 

Thanks; I've seen other SoCal games with helicopters but for safety's sake this action was staged with empty mags. The local paintballers were duly impressed, and it WAS incredibly fun, but I'm paying for it now trying to clean a pound of grit from my GBBR. Should be a video up soon with a LOT more PMC goodness.

A private training field we use in Riverside County.

 

Hmm, interesting. Love to hear more.

 

 

I'm still waiting for the video; we were running multiple helmet and gun cams.

 

 

Gaaah lookout, it's the Trump Cobra!

 

I go home when I see stuff like this at a game.

Really... are people still not cottoning on to the fact the pose was entirely intended to take the ###### out of paintballers? Seriously? It seemed obvious to me as soon as I looked at it, I had a good lol at the originality of the idea behind the joke actually.

I was under the impression that most fields do not allow blindfiring for safety reasons, so I haven't seen many dorks playing like that, aside from the occasional player who holds his weapon next to his head and extends his arms to track targets while standing in the open.
