This is not actually a Real Steel (RS) wiki of a real gun, but as airsoft replicas based on Anime shows from Japan are coming out, might as well dig up Wikipedia to find the entry on Seburo. While many will wonder why some airsoft manufacturers are coming out with these types of airsoft guns, there is a huge generation of airsoft players who are very much familiar with Anime shows, and sci-fi and fantasy conventions are filled up with attendees wearing their favourite anime character.
We will be doing a site upgrade this weekend. We are not yet sure the day and time, but most likely it will be on Sunday, 6 April 2008. If you encounter loading problems, an "Error 404", or "Site Down for Maintenance" on Sunday, our apologies, the site upgrade will have been ongoing by then. The site will return to normal news posting on Monday, 7 April 2008.
It was a wet Saturday, but the rains failed to dampen the spirits of various Filipino airsoft teams from all over the United Kingdom to gather and just let all the bbs out. The Gathering is an annual event of the ACE Brigade running on its second year, and is gathering more and more airsoft players each year. Last year's first The Gathering, which was held in Combat South, Portsmouth had 100 players. This year's Reloaded gathered 130 players at the Longmoor MOD Training Camp.
The April 2008 issue of the Popular Airsoft Magazine is now released! This time we've got 129 pages of articles and stories. We're writing more and more now since the Maiden issue, and we're targetting more pages in the next issues. There are lots of stuff we want to write about, but to reduce download sizes without compromising the quality of content, we moved the other stories for the future issues of the magazine.
Editor's Note: We are posting here online a sample article taken from the upcoming Volume 1 Issue 2, April 2008 of the Popular Airsoft Magazine. This article will give you an idea on what our main theme for the April 2008 issue is. Written by Mike, formerly of the 101st Airborne Division, 18th Airborne Corps, who is an army medic himself, he stresses on the importance of having a medic appointed in any airsoft team.
You are reading this right, we have a new gimick! Popular Airsoft's Best Airsoft Photos of the Year 2008. Popular Airsoft invites photo enthusiasts from all over the world to send over their best airsoft photographs for the chance to see these published in our fast growing PDF airsoft magazine. Photographs could be anything from action to human interest shots that capture the adrenalin-pumping fun and excitement that come with our kind of sport.
In observance of the Holy Week, Popular Airsoft will not be posting news and information starting on Good Friday, 21 March 2008, until the 24th of March 2008 (official UK Holiday). Besides, we need a break from our hectic schedule of preparing for the release of the April 2008 issue of the Popular Airsoft Magazine. Well, we all need a break from the rat race going on in the world and reflect on our personal lives, religious believer or not. For those going on long trips, we hope you won't encounter much traffic along the way. Enjoy your vacation folks!
Editor's Note: While most of us is content on just “dressing the part” of a private military contractor (or simply, contractor), Popular Airsoft Magazine is lucky to have been given a chance to sit down and chat with a REAL PMC. Mike, United States Army (retired), is now 53 years old. This feature story contains excerpts from a lengthy interview made by Dom, one of the new Popular Airsoft operators from Hungary.
Would you buy a car that looks like a Supercar, but only has a 1 litre engine under the bonnet? Most doubtful. You would be happy to have it parked somewhere while people give it admiring glances, but should they wish to check out what is hidden beneath the bonnet of the car, well, it would be like asking a girl to take off her wonderbra in public - you wouldn't wish that kind of embarassment on anyone. It has to be said that there is a lot more than just the mere aesthetics, form and function should be at ones with each other. So why do we put up with "inferior" products?
We have gathered that the Airsoft Combat Enthusiast's Brigade (ACE Brigade) THE GATHERING 2008: RELOADED which we shall cover on the 15th of March 2008, will be attempting a live webcast of the event. As far as we are concerned, we have not heard of any livecast of any airsoft skirmish event, and this must be a first in the history of airsoft. If there had been one before this, please do inform us and we'll set the record straight.
