New Guys, Please Read! Make your first posts here!!

Welcome to the AA boards.

Now, let us know who you are in a few words.  This is the place to tell us whatever you want us to know while reading your posts.  Military or LE experience?  Fantastic, you're not alone.  Ex-paintball player, lots of us here.   Just into military stuff?  Referred to AA by a buddy, or been to a few games but not posted?  Whatever brought you here, let us know.

Everyone should have completed and intro before they lose the "Forum Newbie" indicator.

Likewise, those of you who have some forum "rank" are more than welcome to share what some of us still might not know.

i got a paintball gun when i was nine. After learning that it wasn't something that i could shoot in my backyard i went and looked for something that i could shoot.  Then i stumbled uppon airsoft and have been doing it ever since then.  I have a wide variety of guns and am currently putting together a team.

Nice place you have here.  8)
I suppose the reason I got into airsoft was due to the BB-gun fights I used to get into when I was younger. After a few bb's under the skin I stoped but I never forgot how fun it was.  I never got into paintball because it was

a) expensive IMO
b) Just didnt feel as fun to me.

When Reaver and Pryde showed me how the guns worked and took me to a small local game I was hooked.

Hello,

I've been airsofting with my friends for a while but I've never been part of an organazation before. I consider myself fairly experienced and I do own a lower end AEG, and some high quality springers.

I just wanted to know if there were any teams in Gilbert that I could look into joining. Could I have more info on that. Anyone whose part of a team in Gilbert can just Email me at datallguy@cox.net instead of posting a reply, I eagerly await any replies. Thanks.

Hi.  I live i Scottsdale and have been in airsoft for approximately 1 year.
I own(ed) A mini uzi, pt 92, auto hardball, dpms a-15, m4505, Tm Uzi.  Spikez is really the one who introduced me to all of this.  It's more convenient than real steel, cheaper than paintball, and the guns are more realistic than .177 caliber bb guns.  Im kind of on airsoft probation due to a B on mid terms but i might be able to play again pretty soon.  (Plus the Uzi broke.)

I am Ganef, I used to be spectre on the old forumns but due to technical problems I could not get to my old e-mail adress in time and when i went to sign up with my old name, it was taken...bastard! so after $8 in new nametapes I am ganef, nka, b-pos. I am an eagle scout and played airsoft before I served a mission for my church in east africa(kenya, ethiopia). i have since returned and jumped right back in to the sport I like. I am a student of mechanical engineering at ASU and have always been fascinated by military go-faster gear. I admit I had a eagle tac-3 detachable vest, but now I have a RAV. I thought for a while about paintball, but like the realism and honor of airsoft. I also want to sharpen important gunfighting skills and understand perhaps a little bit of what it means to be in the military. My gear is posted on the gear board. I worked as a welder and machinist and Raith dissuaded me when my homemade steel tappet plate for my mp5 just did not work right. Raith and Kurn and I went to JH school with me and we have been friends ever since, of corse over the 2 years I was gone they have excelled in AA rank where I have not. I am dedicated to airsoft in az and will be around for a while.  Feel free to hit me up for welding projects, I am always looking for a job to do.
