Hey guys n' gals, Iv'e got an Airsoft team started here in Chilliwack called "CHWK FUBAR" and I'm wondering if any of you have any interest in playing. For those of you who don't know what airsoft is, I'll give you a quick rundown.
If you've ever played paintball, think of it as the same thing, except with realistic weapons, realistic tactics, less mess, less painful, and more fun. It's a very cool game to play. Airsoft guns fire 6mm plastic bb's at rate anywhere from 200-500 Feet Per Second on average.
One thing must be made clear though, it's not for kids, it IS dangerous. You have to be a legal adult to own a REAL Airsoft gun. Those Guns you find at wal-mart made of clear plastic are what is known as "SoftAir" sure you can use them, but they are not nearly as effective, accurate, or realistic as the Airsoft equipment that is out there. Don't let that discourage you though, if thats what you have feel free to come out! Nobody's gonna make fun of you for having a Wal-Mart gun, thats what I started with.
I have a full metal replica of a Sig P226 pistol, It has the authentic weight and construction of the real thing. It is indistinguishable from a real one other than the barrel size and the look of the magazine. You can even completely strip it in the field for cleaning and it tears down just like a real one. It is powered by propane gas that is stored in the magazine for propellant. It fires it's bb's at 340 FPS and is semi automatic.
I also have an Armalite M4-S System replica that is mostly metal, it fires at 380 Feet per second at a rate of 800 rounds per minute in full auto mode. Also indistinguishable from the real thing it is almost as heavy as a real one too.
If anyone is interested in getting into the game it's a great hobby, and it's not very expensive at all concidering what we pay for insurance and bikes.
This sport is on the fringe of being illegal because of irresponsible idiots taking their stuff to school, or thinking its funny to shoot out the window at pedestrians. It is taken very seriously by it's players and is not a "game". The weapons are treated as if they are the real thing. Please be responsible with your guns if you own them!
Check out the vids I posted. The second one gives an explenation about the weapons. It is illegal to carry an airsoft gun around in the open. It is not illegal to own or play with one. You should always have it in a gun case when being transported. A cop WILL shoot you if you are carrying it around because they look 100% real. They should be treated as REAL. (I know I'm repeating myself)

Game season is here with the weather starting to warm up. I hold games almost every weekend. If you're on facebook feel free to add me "Dale Broeckx", once you've added me and you are in the "Vancouver BC" network, search "CHWK FUBAR" under groups and request to join. From there you'll see regular postings and game times. As more people are interested I'll be getting a forum going for the team. Hope to see some joiners soon!
