Big Screen To Big Games

Recently the trailer for the movie, “Lone Survivor” has created quite a bit of buzz in the airsoft world. It really does look like an intense flick with some well-done special effects, a cool story line and sweet gear. Like many players, I see some great movies and either want to be as cool as the character or just have the impressive stuff they have. Movies like “Black Hawk Down” and “Zero Dark Thirty” have encouraged a huge number of players to re-create the movies and even create kits based on the video games.

OP Faded Giant 2

I ’m pretty sure that most airsofters keep a private mental list of “dream” places they would like to play: abandoned hotels, military urban combat training facilities, derelict factories, or possibly an abandoned oil rig in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico (ok, that one is a stretch, but you have to admit that it would be a ton of fun).

ICS Galil ARM ICS-91

Review: ICS Galil ARM ICS-91

With modern rifle models changing faster than clean underwear, it’s hard to keep up with the latest “cool guy” gun. “Block II” this, and “Mk18” that; it can be a bit daunting to decipher at times (and sounds like a foreign language, too).

PolarStar PAKS-74UN Rifle

Polarstar PAKS-74UN Rifle

When I think about the new PolarStar PAKS-74UN rifle, I want to SHOUT words like “exquisite,” “immaculate,” “gorgeous,” and “Praise the Motherland!” All, of course, with my thickest Russian accent. I’ve actually started to think that communism isn’t such a bad thing and that maybe I should defect to be closer to Putin, the Kremlin and Russian “road ragers” with dashboard cams (apparently that’s a “thing” in Russia).
