    Hey Guys!

    Hey, I am a 16 Year old new to airsoft, I have been to a field back in philly and rented gear when i was up there with my family and absolutely loved it, However on the northern side of indianapolis I haven’t really been able to find a place to play. I think there might be a CQB place around here but I would really prefer an outdoor place just my preferred type of area from what I liked back in Philly, I ended up purchasing everything I need so i’m ready to get out and play, I just need to know where to go. Thanks guy for your time! ~ Devin
  2. I want to upgrade my echo 1 mk14 combat master but am not sure I'm looking at the correct parts or have a good idea as for what to upgrade as I will be using it both close quarters and as a sniper. I'm thinking of upgrading the barrel to a 6.03 as it is accurate already with a 6.05 stock barrel. Any help is appreciated thank you. And yes I am a new player, my brother got me started with the sport.
  3. Hello all! I’m an airsoft newbie looking for some help/advice. I decided to get into airsoft after hearing about it from some friends, and it looks very exciting. I jumped the gun and got an AEG rifle last winter, and it works very well after testing it. The only problem is that once spring came around, my friends didn’t want to do airsoft anymore, and I haven’t heard anything from them since. So fast forward to this summer, and I actually want to get into airsoft. I’ve never been to a single location, event, or even a backyard game at all. I live in northern Indiana, and I can’t seem to find any good places around to go to for airsoft. The only gear I have is my AEG rifle (The M804A from BB Tac), 1 mag, and a container of around 5000 bb’s. I don’t even have safety gear yet, or an extra mag. Should I get safety equipment, or just rent it from an event/field? Are there any good airsoft locations around Northern Indiana? How does an airsoft newb get into the sport/game? If anyone could give advice, any and all is welcome.
  4. Hi, my name is Dakota (Jack Ranger is a pseudonym I came up with in middle school and could never let go). I discovered airsoft about two years ago through YouTube, and I've been wanting to pick it up for awhile. I've been more of a collector so far, and have been buying guns, uniforms and gear for about a year now, but I still haven't had an opportunity to play. I live in southern Indiana (Birdseye in Dubois county, to be specific), and don't know anybody who plays. I would like to actually get out there and play the sport I've spent so much money on. The only nearby field I know of is Silver Spur, and the one time I tried to play, they were closed due to bad weather. Can anybody recommend any other fields nearby, if any? I would also like to know if there are any experienced players or teams willing to let me tag along for a game so that I can learn and make friends. I've been watching videos for awhile, and I think I understand most of the basics, but I understand that I don't know everything (I've even come across terms I don't understand yet on this forum). I would like to get some play time under my belt with someone who does know what they're doing, so that I can play a bit more confidently. Thank you in advance for your advice and help. I look forward to finally playing airsoft.
  5. Introduction Hello everyone! My name is Aaron, I am 23, and I would very much like to join the airsoft-indiana community. I recently dropped all forms of electronic gaming and I am looking for a healthier and more social hobby to participate in. I’m not sure about a callsign yet, I hope that is ok. Location I am located in the Anderson, IN area and am willing to travel a reasonable distance for matches. I currently don’t have any gear yet. I am still doing my research on what I would most enjoy. Because of realism, I am leaning towards a propane powered assault rifle. However at this time I’m not sure what role would best suit me and I’m sure there are more appropriate places to discuss this topic. Paintball Experience For 4-5 years I was involved in speedball paintball. After my gun and some gear was stolen from me, along with other things, (house break in) I stopped playing. The price of paintballs always irked me, so I think airsoft is a better option for me anyway. Airsoft Experience When I was younger I was involved in backyard airsoft. Therefore, I have some very basic airsoft knowledge, about 2-3 years worth. Most of us had cheaper weapons but we had fun. The problem was always getting enough people together. About me I genuinely enjoy teamwork and collaboration, which is what drew me to the airsoft community. I understand the amount of respect and civility that is required for a successful game of airsoft. However, in my case, I understand that there is still much to learn and I am excited to do so. I am locally acquainted with one individual on this forum, which is who forwarded me here. I am really excited about getting involved in this community, but I am taking baby steps, as I should be. Sincerely, Aaron Summary Name: Aaron Callsign: None as of yet Location: Anderson, IN Gear: None as of yet
  6. So I saw someone asking "I got a gun magazines and plate carrier what do I get next?" and figured I'd help this person out (you know who you are ) and just get this basic primer out for future reference. I'm basing this on my previous experience starting out, and is placed in the order of how you should time/plan your purchases. There is no real timetable on this but take your time or your wallet will scream bloody murder. I could have sworn I saw a thread like this, but it must be titled differently. Mods, please delete if this is redundant. Here are you want to get BEFORE stepping on the field. These are NOT optional: Minimum ANSI Z87 rated goggles. At the very least get surplus ESS or Revision goggles. These are easily available on eBay. Ask us if you're unsure. You absolutely should not compromise on this. Mesh face mask - some people don't. If you're 14 years or something, get one. We will not apologize to your mom for getting your tooth shot out. When you're older you can make a choice whether to wear one or not. Quality, comfortable boots, waterproof boots (thanks to Starblade). Comfortable socks - don't cheap out on any of the above. Gloves - because you don't want to cut your hands pulling some thistle aside, or God forbid, poison ivy Tetanus shot (see above) Good attitude Cellphone (hope you don't have to make a call) Game essentials: WATER - at least 2 liters for a day game. Doesn't have to be in a hydrobladder. Old fashioned canteens or Nalgenes still work great. Recommend also a few bottles of water and sports drink like Gatorade. For hot days, I recommend a few bottles of Pedialyte as well. Your gun (duh) - recommend that you start with AEGs. Batteries, of course. I recommend two of each. Magazines (recommend midcaps, at least 4) Red rags (at least 2) BBs (recommend .25g biodegradable) Something to carry your gear with: It doesn't have to be a plate carrier. I recommend a tactical vest of light H-harness to begin with, before moving on to bulkier plate carriers and whatnot. Some of the best airsofters I know go very light. Obviously if you've been in the military you're more likely to be comfortable or familiar with a plate carrier. Camo - get two sets, one in green and another in tan (unless you're absolutely set on going one color). Small LED flashlight - a cheap $5 one will do, for when you drop something in the dark or on the carpet at Chill N Grill Dump pouch Energy/protein bars. Don't be the kid who eats MREs for lunch during a 6-hour game. The constipation that follows isn't worth it. Did I mention water? You'll need that for hydration and washing down those energy bars. Electrical tape - good stuff! Wristwatch - get a cheap one. It sucks to have a screen shot out on a expensive watch Bug spray Anti-fog wipes Optional items - items you can get once you're used to airsofting and decide to invest more time and money in More magazines Plate carrier Another gun Sidearm - any people make the mistake of buying a sidearm outright. Don't worry about it. Some veteran airsofters don't. More mags (up to you) Optics (surprisingly expensive, so low priority) Red signal light for night games (recommend that you get used to day games first) Gun upgrades - start with barrel/bucking/hopup upgrades first. For most people, that's all that's needed. A decent radio (absolute last in this list) Luxury items - you don't really need this, but if you had the money to spare: Taclight - even replica lights can be pricey Action camera (one kid bought a cam outright last year. Still haven't seen him in a game since). A really nice, military-grade radio (see video camera) High-end gear (seriously folks, if you just airsoft, Condor does the job 99% of the time) That said, this is a general guide. I'm sure you'll still have questions. On that note, there are legitimate questions, and there are questions that'll just get you trolled. A bad question is: "What gun should I get?" A good question is: "The ICS M4 is the same price as the G&G M4, which one should I get?" - which a lot of the folks here would give you helpful pros and cons of each. Good luck!
  7. Hi Everyone! I'm new to this forum and looking to play some outdoor games in the central Indiana region. Hopefully it gets warmer here in the next few weeks. Is there any groups of players that meet regularly? I just started playing airsoft and bought some starter equipment. Prefer older players 21+. See you guys on the field!
