CQB City Airsoft February 20, 2010

 Night operations are a bit tougher to film for two reasons (1) the facility is dark and (2) people shoot anything with a light on it. Even with the "nightshot" the built-in IR light on the camera is not strong enough to light up no more than 5ft-7ft in front. Apart from the constant oncoming sight of BB's it was  another great turnout @ CQB City. I will admit there were some real safety and carelessness issues that day but nothing that couldn't be resolved.

Quick Notes:
  • Be careful of your engagement distances
  • Always wear your eye protection when playing
  • Dont shoot outside the facility
The night op was also the first night I would be able to field the WE M4 GBB (Codename: Project Haley) that I just recently got my hands on. Imagine the first time you played an actual airsoft game/op and you fumbled around and didnt know too much about what was going on. Thats what it was like; like I was new to the sport again. Being such a close representation of a rifle (aside from Systema/WA/KJW) the operation of the rifle was familiar yet foreign to me. I raced around a corner and lined up a shot pressed on the trigger and "CLICK" nothing happened. Forgot to "SEND THE BOLT HOME." Took a good load of shots down field and went to shoot "CLICK" time to reload. It was one new learning curve after another. It was a good experience overall and my hopes I will continue to improve.

Based on my experience that night I will use the WE M4 as strictly my  weapn of choice for training and Milsim events.

[UPDATE: Recovered]
Is the person pictured you? Or do you know who this person is? In the picture is my tan scarf that I loaned out in good faith that I would get it out. Guess what? Never got it back. I would like to think it was done by mistake and that I could get it back. Contact me ASAP.

Yeah. I understand people make mistakes but people gotta understand engagement distances. That was less that 5ft with an AEG which at CQB City is a "no-no." Im glad he was cool with it and understood his mistake.

Its a 3M Respirator used for painting. I usually wear just a mouthguard, however, it was a night game did not want to get lit up in the face!

Nice videos. I'm not an airsoft player, strictly woodsball, but you make this sport look fun. I'm trying to familiarize myself more with airsoft b/c I am opening a paintball and airsoft web storefront.

I appreciate the comment. Ive come across many active paintballers and former paintballers (turned airsoft) at CQB City and have much respect for the sport. I wish nothing but the best for the paintball and airsoft e-commerce store.

Just checked out your woodsball website which I think its well done.
