Default I'm listening.....

Had this video pop up in my youtube...

http://youtu.be/TEgfFKeQxi8">http://youtu.be/TEgfFKeQxi8" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="350">

I'm interested in learning more...

Calguns, school me on high quality airsoft rigs as a training tool. Are the ar- platform airsoft guns compatible with real life ar- pattern furniture? Fwiw, i shoot an ar15 and glock 19 these days, so I'd want to rig up any airsoft guns to be representative to my real guns

Edit: can't seem to figure out how to embed video, here's the link https://youtu.be/TEgfFKeQxi8

Just wondering - Anyone ever get shot in the balls?
(accidentally of course)

I went with paintball instead. The tiberius t15 is awesome, I also have a few tipmann tmc but I gave them away to friends to get them into mag fed.

I personally feels itís great practice for mag changes, using a dump pouch, and basic tactics. Itís easy to see where you can go wrong in a fire fight, just donít take it too seriously and remember to have fun. Donít be that creepy guy at the field talking about practicing with your AR for real life.

My only wish is they made a 50 cal mag fed that would fit 30 rounds in a magazine.

I also use a riser and red dot, and first strike rounds. Pretty solid groups out to 90 feet, like head sized easily. This adds to the realism as I did not enjoy the erratic nature of the Paintball. Thatís probably a feather in the air soft cap so to speak. They are more accurate which aids in training.

But that's EXACTLY what I'd be getting into it for!

Obviously it's not a real gunfight; i have alot of difficulty believing it's a complete waste of time and absent any training value.

Yeah I still train for it with exactly that reasoning. I just donít say it which was my point.

I think they can be useful tools to develop skills. I shoot idpa and while that can be a useful skill set there is nothing like engaging multiple targets and practicing tactics like Paintball. The trick is playing with good people that challenge you.

In idpa I always though tactical reloads were lame and pointless. Then I won a match by using the 5 rounds in a mag I had left and kept in my pocket instead of stuffing in my grab bag. Learning to count ammo and reload before rushing, all worthwhile things. They are hard lessons too when you make foolish mistakes like leaving your shoulder out an inch too much or lagging while sighting down the rifle.
