Raw Airsoft Battle Uncut – Operation Trick-Or-Treat

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

Zombie Clown Commandos and Tactical Bananas were seen on the battlefront at Black Thorn Airsoft’s Operation “Trick-or-Treat”.

Of course lots off BB’s slung, and I’d say the majority by “Cowboy”, it was his birthday after all so I thought gratuitous Cowboy/M249 Bravo coverage was in order. Happy Birthday mah friend!

You can see more videos featuring “Cowboy” here!

Here’s Cowboys first featured player video

You can see cowboy in plenty of other videos by AirsoftUtah, just keep a keen eye out, you can’t miss him.  Airsoft isn’t quite the same without “Cowboy”!

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

Black Angels Recon Join Forces with Operation Underground Railroad

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

Operation Underground Railroad is a private non-profit organization consisting of ex military and federal agents that went to the private sector to take on this somewhat, “out of sight out of mind” epidemic of child sex slavery.

Their goal is to save these children by raising money from anyone concerned enough to donate.  Black Angels Recon Airsoft group wanted to get on board with this heroic effort made by O.U.R..

$10 dollars got you into their game: “Operation Abolitionist”. as well as ten chances to win prizes at the event.  Donations by Airsofters reached as high as $100 dollars and every penny was donated to Operation Underground Railroad in efforts to rescue these enslaved children from all over the world.

Just over a thousand dollars was donated from this Airsoft event which equals out to a future operation that will literally save one child from sex slavery.  Congratulations Black Angels Recon!

To donate to their great cause, visit Operation Underground Railroad online:

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

Walking Dead Zombie Airsoft Game – Operation Doom 2014

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

— I Like Airsoft.com presents a Black Thorn Airsoft game.  On October 11th-walk, don’t run-or else, they run!  Operation Doom-2014 a walking dead zombie Airsoft game.

Some did run unfortunately for them that meant that the re animated dead were also able to as well and the outcome was not in the favor of the living.

The thing about slow zombies is that they are quite and they appear where least expected.

BTA’s 7th Annual Zombie-Game was another success! Most everyone was very outgoing and seemed to enjoy themselves. I continue to receive a lot of positive feedback and even quality ideas to use in future BTA zombie-games!

BTA zombie games are not scripted. Each wave has a loose scenario with objectives the players must follow. How they accomplish them is up to their skills and tactics. Interaction/allegiances between the different living “teams” is left up to them. The success or failure of the players dictates how they are rewarded or punished in the following rounds. I could mean the difference between having numbers, ammo, supplies, even how many opponants they will face… or what they lose! BTA zombies are not merely targets… they are unarmed, walking, “players” with only one goal… wiping out the “living” players!

WAVE ONE: “DOWNED SUPPLY PLANE”
A Survivor/Military supply plane was reported making an emergency landing. Just prior it was observed that it had jettisoned its cargo, scattering much needed supplies throughout the zombie infested area.

Two more survivor teams (Civilians & Slayers) moved to the crash site to seek out the downed plane for its crew and information about the whereabouts of its dropped cargo. Some ignored the crash site and went directly for supplies.

An alliance between the civilians and military was cut short when the military turned on the civilians shooting them and taking their supplies!

WAVE TWO: “FRIEND OR FOE?/FACE-OFF!”
With new supplies in hand the three surviving factions feel out each other’s camp defenses while trying to confiscate their opponent’s supplies! The Military survivors swept the field effectively taking out the opponent camps while remaining on the run from the ever-present zombies!

WAVE THREE: “THE GAUNTLET”
Starting on opposite ends the Military and Slayer survivor teams must follow a marked path infested with zombies to a preset destination while avoiding a BCO hit-squad!

WAVE FOUR: “RECOVERY”
BCO is once again dispatched to the area to recover the remains of the infected for testing. The remaining zombies pushed the survivors back hard leaving the field clear for BCO to gather their prize! I may have overestimated the strength of the survivors, or underestimated the zombies!?

Between games players were welcome to enjoy the BTA zombie-game shooting gallery! The gallery consisted of some cardboard targets and a life size paper-mache zombie created by BTA founder Ghost! 10 consecutive hits to the plate target (without missing) earned shooters a treat!

After the games we held a modest RAFFLE & COSTUME CONTEST! Prizes were provided by BTA water, dead-rag, and hot-dog sales… as well as charitable donations by members and valuable BTA supporter Green and Shades of ILikeAirsoft.com!!!

Watch the BTA web site AWARDS page for details on the prizes and winners… coming soon!

http://blackthornairsoft.squarespace.com/bta-awards/

Thanks to my fellow command team for arriving early to help set up!

More thanks to the BTA team members who stayed late to help in the field clean-up!

Special thanks to all those who donated towards the prizes!

As always, very special thanks to everyone who played with a great attitude making this another great BTA event!!!

Airsoft Featured Player – Flecktarn

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

Here is another unique addition to the Featured Player lineup.  “Flectarn” or by “Fleck”, who plays for the “Danger Close” Airsoft team.  He sports of course–you guessed it, German flectarn camouflage along with other various Euro style accoutrements, such as a full size G36 rifle.


Flecktarn was stationed in England with the Air Force in 2003 and started playing Airsoft with some friends out behind his house on some open acreage.  He came back to the states and sort of fell out after leaving the Airforce.  But then got back into it to keep in a good physical shape, he has been able to keep about 20lbs off by continuing the sport every weekend.

He likes to play with his squad without keeping to tightly grouped to avoid heavy incoming fire. He enjoys getting into the thick of the fight but makes sure he keeps some kind of advantage.  He isn’t too interested in sniping because of the patience it requires of himself.
