A lot of people have been asking what the field is and where is it. Where I cannot give out the exact location due to insurance and safety reasons, however photos never hurt anyone. I have also decided to do a basic mock-up with what we have in mind. Nothing to scale and nothing too in depth. Just a rough sketch of what we have in mind. The big red line is our fence as well as including a small target range for people to check out replicas, or tune them in. Hope you like it!
Down here in Florida, our locations and demographic is a bit, well diverse for sure. AOs or Areas of Operation are few and far between. Literally speaking! You have to drive at least an hour or two to play at a legit field and well, not all of them are up to par. The good thing about them, they are there for us. Someone is taking the time to put something together for the community using what they have. Ingenuity is what I like to call that. It is why I am doing what I am doing with this organization. To make that gap smaller for players of the community.
The players in South Florida are growing on a weekly basis. There is always someone getting into the sport/hobby for whatever reason. Their kid plays it, and they want to spend time with them. Perhaps its the sense of brotherhood you get. Maybe you cant get into the military and this is your way of paying homage to the men and women of our armed forces, or maybe they are using it as a stress reliever, whatever the case they are interested.
And to give you an idea of how diverse and large this community (the airsoft community as a whole) is, and not too mention developed, check out this video from Operation Lion Claw Military Simulation Series (OCLMSS). Run by John Lu, he puts on the best of the best in military simulation games for our community. Always giving back to the military community as well. If you are unfamiliar with this name, I strongly recommend doing some research and checking him as well as all other events he has put on with his crew.
Truly and inspiration to me and a goal that I think our community here in South Florida is capable of reaching, giving we work together to make it happen. Check out this video with some clip and interviews with the various players from one of their events. This will really give you a great idea how how large this game is and how much larger it is becoming.
Then ask yourself, who really plays airsoft these days? This promo video should help you answer that question.
Recently, I have been fortunate enough have a lengthy conversation with the Owner of Tactical MilSim Magazine MSG (Ret) Howard “Mad Max” Mullen. For those who are unfamiliar with that name, allow me to help explain.
Master Sergeant (Ret.) Howard “Mad Max” Mullen, a 26 year United States Army veteran, is known as one of the most dynamic Rangers to ever serve in the US Army. Beginning in 1979, Mullen served with the elite fighting force group through the decade and into the mid-1990s. During “Operation Urgent Fury” on October 25, 1983, Mullen conducted a 500ft combat parachute assault on the island of Grenada. He has over 250 static line airborne jumps. MSG Mullen is also well known and respected in the mil-sim community and has participated in some of the largest mil-sim events in the US. His experience bridges the gap from real-world military and law enforcement to the tactical mil-sim community. In addition, Mullen has appeared in movies, books, magazines, commercials, and national print ads, as well as public speaking engagements.
MSG Mullen stands behind our cause and look in the future for more to come with us and Tactical MilSim magazine. Mr. Mullen believes that we are doing can not only help bridge the gap between our local community members and our airsoft community but the gap between us and our local law enforcement community. Stay tuned for more great information regarding this relationship and our new field. Until then, please enjoy this commercial, as I know most of you will.
It seems that there are some senators out there that have nothing better to do with their time then to waste everyone that of everyone else. Many of us remember not too long ago the California airsoft community came under attack to put a ban on airsoft. Now, New Jersey has a fight on their hands. Where they are not banning airsoft, they are making so that these replicas are to be classified as real firearms. Let me say that again, real firearms. SB S810 is the new enemy community. And again, we must stand up for not only our rights, but to show that they are making a huge mistake. We do not have to tell you to do this respectfully, but we will anyway. There are many ways you can help stand up and below are those ways. Let’s stand together, yet again as the growing community that we are. Thank you and good luck to everyone in Jersey. We know Pat at Godfather and his following will most certainly be making their stand!

Not too long ago we received a letter from the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department so that we may be able to show that we are working hand in hand with the County in providing a safe location for our community. Check it out, I think these are great steps for our community and its going to be a great year for us!

Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 14,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
