I heard from Airsoft Korea via e-mail. Great to know that airsoft is being played all over the world, from the U.S. to South Korea - we've got some world-wide plastic slingin' going on.

Here's the Jing Gong M16A4 with an M203 and heat shield. This was originally the JG DMR with a full-length, all-metal rail system. Mods took a while, but it's finally completed. E-mail me if you're interested in hearing about how the these mods are done.

The Bio BB Breakdown is going on now. I started June 1 and one month later, still nothing worth reporting. I'll let you know when the BBs start to break down, and I'll post pics on the blog when the images are worth taking a look at.

COYOTE BROWN COMPETITION: Last month's winner of the TRUE coyote brown contest was Midwest Jay. He's scoring a free pair of Mechanix gloves.

AIRSOFT HANDLE'S FOR MY DOGGS: This month's competition - come up with airsoft names for my two doggs - Griffin (on the left as you are looking at this picture - the all-black Lab/Terrier mix) and Caroline (on the right - the brown and black Shepherd/Lab/Hound mix). The contest ends on July 21st, one entery per person.

An A.A.R. of D-Day: Operation Failed Drop from Maine Airsoft

Some of the players (myself included) were paratroopers, and of those paratroopers, some of us were wounded right from the get-go.

ASSESSMENT: Review #1 was of the Echo 1 E90, and JP from Alleyway airsoft gave us a hand on this review. Check out his page on YouTube.

The E90 - a strange-looking but great gun.

Here's the M4 mag adapter JP spoke about.

The E90 all set-up.

ASSESSMENT: Review #2 was of the TSD SD45 (UMP)

The box I recieved from AirsoftGI.

In the box you get the gun and these items.

The stock folds like a G36.

The fore grip and charging handle.

The TSD SD45 with a verticle fore grip and an NC Star red dot scope.

TRICKS OF THE TRADE, Part 1: We talked about moving quietly in the woods and how to be a more stealthy airsoft player.

TRICKS OF THE TRADE, Part 2: We spoke with Scout the Doggie about video recording your airsoft games. Check out his page on YouTube -

LOADOUT: We talked about optics in loadout - what they are, how to set-them up, and the different kinds often used in airsoft.

Your basic red dot tube sight.

Another red dot with a sun shade.

Another more open red dot.

A holo sight on my SCAR-L by DBOYS.

A reflex sight.

A non-magnified ACOG sight.

A 3-9X40 magnified scope.

That same scope on my KART M14 EBR.

Another magnified scope. This one is smaller in size and is a 4X32 and is just about right for most airsoft players who want a magnified scope.


JUST IN: New items and websites worth checking out.

- - check them out, especially the links.
