  1. If I have to have a bag on my person for whatever reason I generally just toss it in one of my cargo pockets on my pants. I rarely have to carry a whole bag though. I would also recommend the link Crimson posted, Jake is a good dude who makes good stuff. ~Joker
  2. We have several people who are experienced backpackers/hikers. You may have to post up something in Off Topic. Welcome back again, again, to the madhouse. ~Joker
  3. Unfortunately traveling to play Airsoft is just part of it here in Indiana. Hell many of us even drive out of state to play. Drag some friends along with you and your drive will usually become more entertaining. I’ve had a lot of fun driving to and from events over the years. ~Joker
  4. Good to see you back on here. I’m hoping to free up some time to attend one of your events soon. ~Joker
  5. I enjoy laser tag. Matter of fact both of my kids birthdays have happened at a laser tag place this year. Way way back in the day when it would get really cold IMPACT would go play laser tag as a team practice instead of attempting to play Airsoft in the freezing cold. We had fun. Welcome to the madhouse.
  6. I have several players confirmed for this. As per usual most are not posting it here first as requested. 🤦🏼‍♂️ ~Joker
  7. Sweaty Sunday Pew IMPACT Open Play Date: 04AUG2019 Time: 12:00PM to 5:00PM Location: Joker's Circus in Bloomington IN Cost: Free Relaxed open play style games. Simple game types. The rules for this particular event will be very relaxed. We may or may not even chronograph weapons. Full seal eye protection is NOT required. However if you choose to wear shooting glasses I request that they at least have a retention strap. And if you still have not filled out an IMPACT waiver I do still need that. I noticed the lack of events so I'm trying to help out and give everyone another opportunity to pew pew. Feel free to use any props that are already out on the field for your games. As far as teams you guys can do green vs tan or just wear whatever you want and divide up on game day. *Fair Warning: Due to various issues Joker’s Circus has been very much neglected for quite some time. The weather hasn’t been kind, so needless to say the field is a bit of a mess. I’m trying to get some of it cleaned up as best as I can when I have the time, before this event. Vehicles with 4WD should park inside the gate. Guns should be kept out of sight of the road and passing traffic. Please pick up after yourself, I don't want to find a bunch of trash on the field. Carpool if possible. The last one who leaves closes the gates. I reserve the right to cancel this event due to bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances. Copy and past to add or remove yourself from the roster. Roster: (0) ~Joker
  8. I’m sorry to hear about the health issues as that’s never fun to deal with. I do understand the event attendance issues as I think that’s been a struggle for everyone lately. I hope everything starts getting better for you all. Good luck. ~Joker

    Hello there!

    Welcome back to the Madhouse. I look forward to playing Airsoft with you soon. Good luck acquiring your new kit and arsenal. ~Joker
  10. Depending on weather and my availability I plan on attending this event. ~Joker
  11. Original post on FB: https://www.facebook.com/events/1016908341836041/?ti=icl Date: Saturday June 29th Time: 9AM to 6PM Location: 2350 Old in-37, Greenwood, IN 46143, United States Cost: $25 This will be an Open Play type of Airsoft event. For more information and rules check out the event on FB. Feel free to post here if you plan on attending this.
  12. We can always use more Airsoft photographers. Thank you for taking these. Looking forward to seeing you on the field and seeing more of your shots. ~Joker
  13. It was a pleasure meeting you yesterday at Spec Ops. I hope to see you and the rest of your family out at more events this year. Also thanks for taking pictures, I can’t wait to see them. Welcome to the madhouse. ~Joker
  14. We have lot of players planning on attending but we don’t know which team they are running. If I had to guess I’d say green will likely outnumber tan. If you know what team you are running please copy and paste the roster and add yourself and your friends to the list. ~Joker
  15. Hey thanks for posting this. And I can’t really disagree with what you’ve said. One advantage (of many) I think we have here is the ability to see all events in one place. It really helps with organization and helps people plan for things a little better. But on the other hand I can see why it would look like FB gets more attention with a lack of posts here lately and a simple “interested” or “attending” button push. I always post here first. And I typically post on FB to try and get people to come back here and engage. I do have an IG that I use for Airsoft but I don’t typically post about events there, maybe I should start. I know HiFi does, I’ve seen it. Maybe I should also create an Airsoft Indiana IG. Believe it or not posting Airsoft Indiana on YouTube also helps a lot. Either in the title of the video, in the tags, and or the description with links. I’ve directed a lot of players here over the years from that. ~Joker
  16. Very nice write up. Maybe we need to host another SAT event for snipers, if there’s enough interest in something like that again. ~Joker
  17. Still a couple weeks out. But keep adding yourself to the roster so I have a better idea of what to expect. Thanks.
  18. I would very much like to attend this. So if scheduling allows and I have good transportation I hope to be there. ~Joker
  19. Hey everyone, I recently went to Spec Ops Group in Martinsville on a random Sunday for some pew pew and it got me thinking. Playing Airsoft outside versus playing Airsoft inside are technically the same thing, but they are also very different. I prefer to play outside, I’m much more comfortable and it’s more my pace of play. But every now and again I like to mix it up and I do like to make sure my CQB skills don’t get too rusty. But here in Indiana our indoor fields are very limited and over the years I've noticed a lot of players who (how shall I put this nicely?) are more Noobs with indoor Airsoft than they may want to admit. I also noticed a lot of players who may think they know what they are doing because they’ve seen some YouTube videos or something and it doesn’t always work like that haha. Now I know for a fact we have several members here who are former Military and or Police who probably have experience doing this in the real world. I also know for a fact that some of us civilians here have been “trained” by those with said experience. With that being said, this is a topic for Airsoft. And what I mean by that is some things that may apply in the real world may not work well in Airsoft and of course vise-versa. What I would like everyone to discuss is their CQB tactics or helpful hints for playing inside to help those that may be somewhat new at it who are looking to improve. My contributions to this firstly is getting out and playing in said indoor environments. Knowledge of tactics is all well and good but in order to be helpful you need to be able to execute those tactics. So get out and play. You will gain experience and see what works for you and what doesn’t. Strength in numbers and COMMUNICATION. Much like playing outside it helps to have a squad to run and gun with. But maybe more important inside than outside is communicating with your teammates. This can really make or break you indoors. Sometimes you need, radios, hand signals, or just straight up yelling but use whatever you can to take advantage. And while you may be able to lone wolf it outside, you have to be pretty lucky or good to try that indoors. Mobility. This one seems like common sense but I still see tons of players using kit that would be used for an all day or even two day event for indoors. Sure there are fields and environments that have both indoor and outdoor elements and if you are playing 8+ hours straight then by all mean kit up with a heavy load. But if you are strictly playing inside, especially if it’s not continuous, then you should definitely lighten your load. Drop the PC for a simple chest rig. You may not need to carry 6-8 mags unless you are super trigger happy. You may not need that backpack with water, snack, and other random stuff when you will be going back to staging once the round is over. You want to be able to move quickly and quietly. Which brings me to my last point... Violence of Action. Perhaps one of my favorite tactics for indoor (and outdoor) use is this. It’s also one that to this very day, even after all of these years, I still find myself struggling with sometimes. But in short and not to get too in-depth on this, it is overwhelming your enemy with fast paced movement and action preferably within a squad. Don’t just stand there, keep pushing forward and taking new and better positions. Now it definitely helps to know what you are actually doing and not just running around like a lunatic. But moving quickly and striking fast and efficiently can be very effective indoors if done properly. Well that’s all I’m going to post for now. I just wanted to get the ball rolling on this subject. Please add more to what I’ve posted or add your own ideas. I may add more later. ~Joker

  21. So the necro posting thing... there are a few ways to take it. All forum rules such as that are basically up to Mod discretion as to whether or not they will give you a warning or whatever. Generally though if you are adding new or useful information to the topic or discussion regardless of how old the topic is, you are good. Another option is to simply start a new topic to restart discussions and simply post the link to the original post for reference. And while our forums here may not seem lively with new discussions all the time, as someone who regularly attends a variety of events, I assure you our community is still growing and active. ~Joker
  22. Feel free to post your games in our event section, that’s what it is for after all. When I started hosting games in Bloomington 21 years ago they were very very small lol. But you have to start somewhere. Now IMPACT’s annual Noob Day event averages 75 players with the biggest being about 150. Looking forward to playing with you all. Welcome to the madhouse. ~Joker
  23. This is awesome. Great intro and welcome to the madhouse. Looking forward to seeing you both on the field. ~Joker
  24. You will pay on game day at the field. Everyone feel free to copy and paste the roster (currently blank) and add yourself to whatever team you’d like. ~Joker
  25. IMPACT Noob Day 13 Attention Airsoft noobs! Here is your (or your friends) chance to get out and play! I.M.P.A.C.T. is hosting its annual Noob Day airsoft event. Maybe you are trying to get some friends interested in playing airsoft, then this is your game. JUST REMEMBER YOUR FULL SEAL EYE PROTECTION! Not only will this be a great day for playing Airsoft and trigger time but also learning about Airsoft and players in Airsoft Indiana. Parents are also welcome to learn/observe/play. Please bring a positive attitude and a willingness to learn. Typically we host this event more towards March/April but this year we thought we would try hosting it a little later in the year than usual. And for the first time ever this event will NOT be taking place at Joker’s Circus. We decided to try something new this year to accommodate a bigger crowd. DATE: Saturday May 11th 2019 TIME: Gates open at 9:30AM. Games will begin @ 11AM sharp. We will play until at least 5PM or until everyone gets tired of shooting at each other. LOCATION: Mutual Combat Club; 3560 Pheasant Lane Spencer, IN, 47460 COST: $10 per person, to be paid during the registration process on game day. This is going to the field owner for field maintenance. And just a friendly warning, I would study the IMPACT Skirmish rules before you arrive because there is a good chance of a quiz! http://airsoftindiana.proboards.com/thread/79/skirmish-rules We will be doing very simple games such as “Death Matches” , the IMPACT "ticket" game, and possibly “Capture the Flag”. Suggestions on game day are very welcome. Our focus is on teaching new players new things, safety, and of course having fun. You will need to fill out a MCC Waiver if you don’t already have one on file. If you’re under 18 years of age a parent must sign the waiver also. You can find the waiver online and print it off and bring it with or they may have some on site. Mutual Combat Club is a semi-auto only field for all players, unless they are using support weapons such as an RPK, M60, M249, etc. *Noobs you will need the following: -FULL SEAL EYE PROTECTION! -A full face mask is highly recommended -Red/White Death Rag -If possible Airsoft weapons of some kind -Airsoft bbs of some kind and batteries for your AEG -If possible Camo of some kind -Water is a must and food/snacks are highly recommended -Bug Spray -Comfortable boots -Radio (Wallis-talkie) it’s a big field and we don’t need new players getting lost lol -A positive attitude and willingness to learn +Note these are the basics feel free to bring anything else you may want or need to play in all weather conditions. We will play rain or shine. Please bring your friends that may be interested in playing Airsoft seriously and on a regular basis. If you’re planning on attending please post it here as well as your team’s name if you’re on a team as well as any friends that you might bring. Camo & Teams: Wear what ever you would like (NO RED OR WHITE for obvious reasons). If you have camo wear it. If you do not, or you are bringing someone who does not own camo, no problems. If your team or group of friends want to wear matching camo to help you tell who is who, feel free to do so. More then likely we will NOT be using any kind of team identification. Part of airsoft is learning to ID your targets. BUT this year we would like to make the process of splitting into teams a little faster then previous years. So when signing up for this event please tell us what team you wish to be on, Team 1 or Team 2. IMPACT Noob Day 13 Sponsors: -Elder BB > www.elderbb.com -Spec Ops Group Airsoft > www.callyourhit.com I believe HiFi Resupply will be in attendance and selling items? *A note to all “veterans” that plan on attending; please bring any extra goggles, weapons, death rags and ammo that you can. It will help make the day go by much better.
