I can't believe no one has commented.  I guess people think shooting at paper is sufficient practice.  Oh well.

Eh, it's not for everyone I suppose. Truth be told, if I had land with a house and garage, I'd have a lot more prepping on my plate and a lot less airsoft. All I can really do in an apartment in Miami is keep my jeep full of fuel, my guns clean, and my BOB by the door.

Wow, that looks like a lot of fun I wish we had kind of competition up here in Ohio.  I’m lucky to get 2 guys for one on one. I went by your FB page that’s a great profile pic. I also enjoyed the videos.

I'm working on getting some of that set up on my 10 acres.  We're up in Sumter County, FL.  Too bad you guys are so far south.   :'(

Distance isn't really an issue. We got guns, we travel. You set up a challenging environment or scenario and chances are the team owner will def consider it.

I like the idea of airsoft as a training tool!

Nice, I like the boat scenario. Reminds me of this one time training with these certain guys. They contracted an old cruise ship for a week for training, they had a big budget.

When airsoft fist came out I thought it was a nice toy. I've since changed my position and bought one last year. It's nice to still be able to train when I can't use the real thing.
