Baby Isabella Update

This is a quick update on the efforts to help and condition of Baby Isabella. While ­she is still in the hospital until the family eventually settle the bills, there are some activities going on to help raise the funds for her release. The baby is in better c­ondition nowadays, but of course, she needs to go home. While she is still in the hospital, the bills are piling up, making it a vicious cycle for th­e parents who are in no condition to immediately pay for the bills.

WebSighting: Section 8 Of Slovenia

A very impressive airsoft team, the Slovenia-based Section 8 is a mil-sim oriented Airsoft group that has a very well-defined organisational rules and specialisation. They're actually patterned after the US Armys Special Forces and try to train along the lines of these units. Everything they do is with clear written rules, typical of any well-knit unit oriented towards military simulation.

RS Wiki: The Thompson "Tommy Gun" Submachine Gun

Another round for me for copying from Wikipedia. This time, this is about one of the famous classic guns that many of us are familiar with, especially these are much in use in Hollywood Movies that cover the Prohibition Era in the United States, or made infamous by Chicago gangs during that period. For me, I best remember the Tommy Gun in the movie The Untouchables starred in by Kevin Costner and Sean Connery (Directed by Brian de Palma in 1987).

Airsoft Community For Baby Isabella

Giovanni Mirabueno, a.k.a. "Charlie Tango," the founder of Unit Black Division in Hong Kong, has made an appeal to the Philippine airsoft community that jolted them into action. His brother's wife has given birth to a beautiful baby girl, Isabella Margarita Mirabueno, but unfortunately, she was born with multiple congenital anomalies. Isabella was born with a congenital heart disea­se, diagnosed as Tetralogy of fallot with PDA or TOF, her heart has a huge hole and her PDA,where unoxygenated blood pass through to get to her lungs is narrow.

Update On The Custom M4 Recoil Mechanism

We got many positive feedback and some apprehensions regarding the featured M4 Recoil mechanism which we posted a week ago. These have been communicated to XRL Workx, the owner of the technology, and so­me corrections or adjustments have been made in order to make the mechanism available to airsofters wherever in the world they are. The latest test reports have been very encouraging in terms of reliability and performance with Filipino airsoft players already lining up their door to have their M4s equipped with this latest cool feature.

WebSighting: Hostile Operations Team (H.O.T.)

Here I go again with my brazen and unshameful tactic of copying team sites. But my job's getting a little bit harder as some of the great team sites I have seen online are not written in the English language. No amount of Babel fish translation can help me out with proper translation and almost everything comes out gibberish. Though I get lucky here and there, sometimes.  I need help in translation in some sites, if there are any volunteers, please do give me a message here.

Airsoft Innovations From The Philippines

While on our month-long visit to the Philippines, we were amazed by the proliferation of custom airsoft guns that were mainly done by the airsoft players themselves. Some AEGs have been well-maintained for several years now, and many classic airsoft guns (pre-Marui AEGs) are still in the cupboards of those who started playing in the mid-1980s. What is even more surprising is the ingenuity of some airsoft players at improving AEGs which should be marketed overseas but restricted by existing laws on airsoft/toy guns.

Full Text of Amended Philippine IRR On Airsoft

We got an email containing the full text of the amended Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) on Airsoft in the Philippines. This was issued last Wednesday, 9 January 2008, by Avelino Razon, the Director General of the Philippine National Police (PNP). While this is nowhere close to the VCRA in the UK, this is also welcome news neverthless for Philippine airsofters, as this puts airsofting generally  on a semi-legal basis, until the existing law banning replica firearms gets revoked by the Philippine Congress.
