With the Victory Show 2013 recently held, Hyperdouraku filed a report about a new series that we at Popular Airsoft know about for ssome time now: the Light PRO Series from Tokyo Marui. We had to wait a bit until the Victory Show Japan to happen for us to finally write about this, and even the information that was given us was actually a surprise as we had no inkling about a new series from the company.
With patriotic fervor rising to new heights in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (or North Korea), everyone in the West of the Pacific is holding breath if an outbreak of overt hostilities will happen again between the two Koreas, with all these bellicose pronouncements of their "Great Successor" Kim Jong-un, who assumed recently as the Supreme Leader of North Korea following the death of his father, "Dear Leader" Kim Jong-il.
It's going to be a long weekend for us at Popular Airsoft as we're going to take the Easter Break. We'll try to post some news that come our way if we get the feel of work whilst taking a break. Other news items sent to us during the break will be posted after Easter Monday. For the meantime, why not take a look at this unique airsoft gun project?
Oh yes! This community of airsoft enthusiasts just want all the Bundeswehr goodies for one good reason --- they’re the Ukranian Bundeswehr Reenactment Community. It would be such a shame if the airsoft guns and gear that they use are not in use by the army that they want to emulate. And for the general airsoft community, what they like to be replicated for airsoft are some of the stuff that we want too.
Watching the documentary on the 3D Printed Gun, I felt like the debate on gun control is an exercise in futility in the United States. 3D Printing, combined with the 2nd Amendment Rights, and laws on allowing individuals to build their weapons for personal use, will allow any person who has the CAD file and the 3D printer to print out his or her own weapon, without the government able to stop such activity unless new legislation regulating 3D printing of firearms is put into place.
If you haven't had a breather yet with all those Harlem Shake videos in the interwebs, pity you, as here's another viral meme that is getting the attention of the media everywhere and Photoshop users who love action movies and have time in their hands to touch up screenshots. If you've been seeing some photos being shared on Facebook of action stars with their thumbs up in various movie screenshots, chances are, you are looking at doctored photos from Thumbs & Ammo.
Optimus Prime forwarded to me this news story found by Thumpy's 3-D House of Airsoft. The title made me doubt at first, as it says "Training Instructor Shoots Student In The Head," which for me is almost like seeing a rare white crow land at my window sill. I thought it was a joke, which sometimes Thumpy can pull off on unsuspecting readers.
In this continuing advocacy of us to have an Airsoft CAD Depository Project to create an online source of freely shared and freely downloadable designs of airsoft guns and parts (and anything related to the preservation and promotion of airsoft via 3D printing), we want to point out this ongoing documentary project of the 3D Printed Gun where the Airsoft CAD concept took its inspiration from.
These are the four words that run through my blood every time I handle a firearm. These are the four rules that any shooter must know and follow. As simple as it sounds, sometimes it’s not the case and all it takes to remind us sometime is for an accident to happen. Suddenly your world is turned upside down.
