Title: New to Airsoft, In Rockford, Illinois! (Please Read!)
Post by: Dalton_Belvidere on June 15, 2010, 01:02:30 pm
Hello Everyone!


I'm new to AirSoft in the Rockford Illinois area, although I live in Belvidere.


I'm 13 soon to be 14 and can get to any area around here. I'm also 5'11 145 pounds and I'm in good shape. Athletic ability is no holdback.


I've already PM'd Hammer and I'm hoping to get in on some AirSoft games soon. I have my own Primary and Secondary, but that's it. They're both Spring my primary is 300-350 FPS. It's a TSD. My secondary is a Crosman Pistol w/ holster.


That's all I have, I obviously have Jeans and Sweaters too for Protection. I've got athletic shoes too. Obviously proper face protection as well. If anyone has any games coming on I'd be honored to come!


-Thanks again, Dalton.  ;D

There's nothing wrong with jeans, sweatshirts and springers, but definitely get boots when you can, good boots.

Agreed! Things get so muddy; you don't want to break an ankle! Until you can afford something better they're cheap at the surplus stores

Gear comes with time, nobody expects you to have it all right away. :D

Only the geardos like G3K/Factor/Whatever he's calling himself now go all-in before they've been in a sport for even a year. XD

One thing I WILL recommend highly, however, is also to get some kind of hiking or combat boots. Anything that comes up past the ankle and protects you from twisting your ankle when (not if, when) it comes down funny on top of a log or in a snake/fox/raccoon/beaver burrow.

Yeah I have great boots, they're hiking/winter boots, cost about 60-70 bucks but they're really sturdy and very comfortable.

Hello....I am new to Airsoft in Rockford.....I was involved in the original war games club in Rockford 30 years ago.  Back then we used Daisy one pump bb guns.  I was the only minor in the club then.  I currently have a AK47 AEG and a Taurus CO2 side arm.  I am looking for a site and possible teams to play with/against.  My understanding is that most players head out to the Faith Field on Saturdays.  Is that still on going?  Do I need to contact a specific person??  Any additions to the normal Airsoft rules??  Thanks in advance........Rafe
