CQB City Airsoft April 25, 2010 (WE SCAR GBB S&W CLEAR SPRING SHOTGUN)

On a humid day to play operators came from all over to beat the heat in CQB City's indoor facility. With close to 60+ players in attendance I got lit up more than a "dread-head" on 420. Every week it seems that players gets more and more gutsy as the fighting tightens. Some of my favorite weapons of the day were a Smith & Wesson Hardball (clear M3000 spring shotgun) which is the kind you can find at Walmart, Target, etc. Why? As you will see in the video the operator running around everywhere using its 19rnd magazine to its fullest capacity. Another was a WE GBB SCAR an operator had that I could hear clear across the field during a firefight. Hearing a WE GBB is such an intimidating sound I could not help but fix my camera pointed in its direction.

CQB City Airsoft April 17, 2010

40+ people came out to a nice night operation at the city for a 20 vs 20 force on force action on Saturday evenings events. I will admit it now that I did a lot more playing than I did filming. Not because I was lazy rather like I have always said; night operations are always difficult to film with my current camera setup. Until I can get some great low light camera I will attempt to film as much as I can during night ops.

I find myself in the thick of the firefight with enemy forces all around me. With the lack of backup from the younger teamates I often was left alone to defend a front bymyself. The first and last couple of scenarios I navigated in the dark often leading me face to face with opposing forces. It never felt so good to shoot with my sidearm as it did during this night op. At some point a rouge player made their way behind our lines. I quickly ran and engaged on the target only to find out the rouge player was other than a fellow CQB CITY staff member. Towards the end of the night total blackout scenarios reigned as lights were turned off and nvg's and tracer unites were turned on. From the little I could see players blindly navigated through the city ran making it for a truly frightening experience. If you have ever stormed into a room during daylight try doing it at night.

Magnum Boots US Headquarters Visit

It is very rare that you will find a company so devoted to bringing amongst the best for its overall end consumer. On April 9, 2010 I was given the chance to visit a company devoted to bringing the lightest boot around, at the Magnum Boots/Hi-Tec US headquarters.

CQB City Airsoft April 11, 2010 (Gas Blow Back GBB)

The smell of green gas and propane covered the air as many of the players loaded up their magazines. With close to 100 players in attendance it was a great day of indoor gameplay. Players seemed to have come from all over the central valley and bay area amongst the most notable; Blow Back Armory, B.A.T (Bay Area Tactical), and Rebel Scum. Each side of players were very gutsy as shooting engment

I dont think I have seen this many gas blow back weapons ever at the city. Many of the players, some many from Blow Back Armory, had nothing but gbb weapons. It was nice seeing many difference type of gas weapons from; pistols, rifles, and smg's. In the video you will see a lot of the force on force operation most which feature a gbb or recoil based weaponry. I think that everyone will enjoy seeing the fighting and close skirmishes in the video after the jump.

Review: Magnum Elite Force 8.0 WPI

Boots are an often overlooked portion of a players loadout. There are countless times in which I have seen people play in sneakers, slip-on's, running shoes, basketball shoes, even in flip-flops. Unless your truly trying to mimic a insurgent loadout improper footwear can actually impede in a players performance.

Its true I have played in the forementioned styles of footwear before and I can understand why many overlook this portion of a players gear. However, I can contest that with the right boot players very seldom revert back.

Currently I have two boots that I wear both as an everyday work boot and as an boot for airsoft. One is the Magnum Desert Stealth Force 8.0 and the other is their new Magnum Elite Force 8.0 boot.
