Kfactors Scope Cam #39

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

Our buddy “Kfactor39” has made his 39th scope cam! hey what a coincidence! (39)  We play with Kfactor all the time, he’s a pretty good shot.  Normally Kfactor is seen building up his Ghillie suit and then we don’t see him the rest of the day because he melts into the grass and woods.  Subscribe to Kfactor: Kfactor39’s YouTube Channel

Stay Safe with Common Sense and Good Practices.

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

As Airsoft becomes more popular, the dilution of common safety practices seem to diminish just for the sheer fact that any and many kids start snatching those AEG’s off the shelf and start sprayin’, for those of us that transition to real firearms on the weekends or even every day practice, a constant discipline of muscle memory and safety typically flows through our veins, or, is that just some of us?

“Trooper” from Black Thorn Airsoft group recently published a public service announcement about recent law enforcement actions. I took note immediately at how much I agreed and wanted to share with anyone else interested.

There have been a string of humans that are either wanting their life to cease here on this earth or maybe forget that Airsoft guns appear just like the real thing and don’t take into consideration their outward appearance.

Those of us that play Airsoft more than a couple games a year and that take this activity seriously and really cherish the weekend BB war, want it to continue forever!

Post origin by “Trooper” from Black Thorn Airsoft facebook page:

“Recently BTA has been repeatedly contacted regarding this local fatal shooting where an individual brandished an airsoft rifle at police officers and the subsequent government proposal to prohibit “realistic toy guns”. We have been asked to speak out about proper “gun safety” and such.

Quite frankly there is not much to say. No amount of firearm safety, weapon bags, orange tips, or even common sense could have helped. According to police reports in the media, the individual was already involved in a domestic disturbance, threatened officers with ramming, endangered people by driving over lawns, led a pursuit, then ultimately pulled what police perceived as a real firearm… leading to being fatally shot. Why he did what he did is not up for me or any of us to speculate or debate… what’s done is done, he acted poorly and cannot “take it back”. Hopefully, the officer(s) involved are cleared of any wrong doing as it was the deceased’s decision to threaten officers

If it’s accidental shootings you wish to avoid, that is simple…

Transport your firearms, both real steel and airsoft in secure cases. Firstly, it protects your weapons… something you likely invested a decent amount of money in. Secondly, a case keeps your weapons from being spotted by passersby… some who may become concerned by the sight of a weapon, some who may target you or your weapon for theft. Don’t bore us with “open carry” laws or second amendment rights… you are simply transporting your weapon. Better to be secure than a victim of theft, embroiled in unnecessary drama, or dead.

Do not brandish your weapons in public. Load them into vehicles in cases. Keep them in vehicles at meet-up points before games. Store them in your vehicles out of sight, in trunks, covered if necessary. Again, to prevent them from being seen or stolen.

IF you are seen by law enforcement with a firearm or airsoft replica… put it down, drop it, keep your hands away from it, obey the officer’s commands until they understand what is going on and that the situation is safe. LE has a hard enough job dealing with real threats and many other problems they don’t need misunderstandings over toy “guns” to make things worse.

To be sure you are doing the right things follow basic “gun safety”… Treat all firearms as if they are loaded and only point the muzzle at what you intend to shoot. Everything else is just common sense and technical details. Search the internet for a lot more safety tips.

As for “orange tips” or brightly colored weapons… It is a federal law for manufacturers regarding the sale and shipment of “toy” weapons. It is no longer applicable after the toy is sold. It is a ridiculous attempt to identify toys as fake… there are already criminals painting real firearms to confuse LE and manufacturers producing “real steel” weapons in a variety of bright colors. Hell, there are even clear plastic real weapons being produced. All of which make “orange tips” irrelevant.

Regarding fighting the government over “air soft”… you can’t. Sign petitions and contact representatives, every little bit helps… but in the end someone needs to take a fall for “stupid people”. No one is going to pay much attention to people who play with “toy guns”. The NRA and other “gun rights” groups are not going to stick their neck out over “toys”. They already have their hands full over real firearms rights.

The quickest way to protect “air soft” is to get it protected under already existing laws. Air soft needs to be classified as “Air Guns”. Air Guns have their own separate set of laws and ordinances… separate from firearms. Contact manufacturers; contact your retailers to contact manufacturers. Ultimately it’s going to be about money… not rights. Manufacturers and retailers have more to lose than us!”

Milsim City CQB Airsoft Arena in Utah

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Recently I had the opportunity to hang out with a couple of guys who have brought something pretty unique to the Airsoft scene here in Utah.

This ambitious group have been slowly making their dreams a reality by building something massive in scope for Airsofters and for the tactical enthusiasts alike.

I wanted to understand them more and put a face to the guys that are behind Milsim City.

I went over to their place to see for myself, I was impressed!

Milsim City is a Indoor air soft arena. Located in Salt Lake City Utah. Set to open January 23, 2015

Airsoft Journalist Gets Lost in the Desert – AirsoftUtah

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

ilikeairsoft.com presents a Black Thorn Airsoft game.  Operation: “Trick-or-Treat”.  The games started intense, then all of a sudden I found my self alone and walking, and walking quite a bit, I was left to the desolation of Utah’s extreme desert conditions.  At my most alone moments I could not hear anything but the breeze. Finally the faint sound of squeaking motors on several AEG’s.  But I soon realized that the troops I had come across were in the same situation I was just in, and the search continued.

This game was hosted by Black Thorn Airsoft

Airsoft Featured Player – Dylan

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Featured Airsoft player Dylan is all about having fun, spending a few hours with some friends playing Airsoft and being able to educate curious players with his knowledge about the American Expeditionary Forces during World War 1.

Dylan’s load out is based off of the AEF Doughboy. One of the most recognizable pieces of his gear would have be the iconic look of the Brodie helmet.  Modeled and adopted off the British Mk 1 helmet of 1916. It’s been called the Tin Hat, Salad Bowl, Dishpan hat and many other terms but mostly known as the Doughboy Helmet.

The ICS M1 Garand AEG is Dylan’s primary weapon, not a weapon of the first world war, but chosen because of its more “skirmishable” capability. His secondary weapon is a double action Co2 powered Nagant revolver.

“The contribution of the US army into the first world war is overlooked quite a bit in American history”, “I find it important to express the amount of lives and effort that the US put into the first World War and it should not be overlooked”, “It’s a nice opportunity to educate people about the US contribution in the first World War”. – Dylan

Airsoft Featured Player – Too Tall

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

I got a chance to roll out with “Too Tall” during a game as I was filming and to see him interact with his other counterparts was a well varied temperament in game play and communication. He has his relaxed side but also knows when to kick it into pro mode when the time calls for it.

“Too Tall” is just that, I can assume he got his call sign from his height because I stand at six feet and I was still looking up to him. The gear he uses is pro Airsoft operator all the way; in looks and function. He plays with a local team here in Utah called Black Ops Elite, or BOE for short.

Team Black Ops Elite has been involved in airsoft since 2006. They are looking for like minded airsoft operators to engage in combat simulated war-games.

Black Ops Elite Special Forces primary purpose is to maintain an elite airsoft fighting unit. We organize our events and community with respect, integrity and safety to achieve this goal.

Team Black Ops Elite hosts airsoft operations on a bi-weekly schedule in Utah. They also attend nation events like the Lion Claws Mil-Sim series. Details regarding BOE operations as well as community activity can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/boeairsoft.
