Dear Airsoft Manufacturers...

Dear Airsoft Manufacturers, especially from the Far East. I am making a wishlist of items that you might want to consider in planning for your new product line up. This list is a  result of my conversations with other players and we hope you will hear us out, and ponder upon our requests. We know that it will take time for you to make these, but we're willing to wait as long as it will not take forever and within our lifetimes, hehehe. Though the list is short, some may just want to add to this list in the comments section.

RS Wiki: AR-15

Now, another round of for lazy ventures into the Wikipedia world, and this time it's about the AR-15. I have some preconceived notions on what the AR-15 is about, and I just think of it as a civilian version of the Colt M16. But I was surprised that there is a great deal of difference, from its name designation, configuration, history, and variants.

The Art of Taking Hits

HIT!!! I’M OUT!!! DEAD MAN COMING THROUGH!!! I could not remember the exact number of times that I have shouted these words every month on the skirmish field. On my first day of Airsoft I was eliminated in the first 10 minutes of the game. But that was okay because all I had to do was to take a short walk to the regeneration point and, like in those video games, I’m back in the thick of the fight again.

Preview: Upcoming Reviews for the June 2008 Magazine Issue

Well, we have officially welcomed Mamba as our latest Popular Airsoft "Operator" to come on board. With this, he was also officially slammed with five airsoft products to review. Good for him, all the items sent to him would really make your mouth salivate. This is basically a sneak preview of what to expect for the June 2008 Issue of the Popular Airsoft Magazine, there are more item to review apart from these.  We hope that some new items released in the market would also be available for us to review.

RS Wiki: Lee-Enfield Rifle

Another round for me now to come up with an RS Wiki. As always, I have to get from Wikipedia for another entry on real steel guns that are or have not yet been converted into airsoft replicas. This one will be a favourite among reenactors as it saw action in many wars, including the Great War (World War I) and World War II. The Lee-Enfield does the British proud, as it has faithfully served in keeping the British Empire together over the modern years.

Book Review: Paintball and Airsoft Battle Tactics

Reprinted from the Popular Airsoft Magazine May 2008 issue. Paintball and Airsoft Battle Tactics is Christopher Larsen's latest book that helps translate small-unit battle tactics to paintball and airsoft, derived mainly from his previous book, “Light Infantry Tactics: Small Teams”. The latter book is already  a must read book for many airsoft players worldwide.

Reenacting The Battle of Qala-i-Jangi

This took place from the 25th of November until the 1st of November 2001 at Qala-i-Jangi a fortress which was converted into a prison for Taliban elements captured by the anti-Taliban forces.

RS Wiki: Close Quarters Battle (CQB)

"So what's cooking up with the upcoming issue of the Popular Airsoft Magazine?"  I asked Optimus Prime who seems to be right now in a do-not-disturb mode since they're already deep into production of the May 2008 issue.  They're quite silent about what they're about to release and always want to make some surprises, even I myself included is surprised by their stories. I wondered if he would tell me a thing or two on what's happening.  But then Optimus Prime blurted out three letters: C-Q-B.
