  1. Blind Fury

    Not so long ago, I showed you that even legally blind people can enjoy our sport. I have now tried to contact them and am awaiting a reply. Here is the original article with the translation. [URL]http://www.sedmicka.cz/opava/clanek/slepci-jdou-do-boje-s-rolnickami-a-samopaly-dobyvaji-strelnici-253766[/URL] It is a nice spring Saturday afternoon. Ten people with black glasses get off a trolley bus on the trolley bus stop by the Psychiatry Ward of Opava. One of them is carrying a large guitar case and...
  2. Differences between "competitive" airsoft and mil-sim airsoft

    es, you do use airsoft guns for both, but there still is a huge difference. I decided to write this article because I frequently see airsofters saying that they love mil-sim, later, when describing the supposedly mil-sim scenario, it turns out it was just another paintball style airsoft battle. People used high capacity magazines and poured thousands of bbs around the area. I am only going to use terms “competitive airsofters” in a descriptive way for lack of better words, not in any...
  3. Sniper - load-out and basic info

    You are usually operating behind enemy lines, you have to rely on yourself (and maybe on your spotter, but let's get to that later) and have to stay in that situation for days. I will focus on scenario based game, where a single sniper might have such a role. This is more for European games, where the scenarios for hundreds of players are usual. I will put different elements of the load out in the order of importance. The most important thing – contrary to what you may think – is a very good...
  4. How to choose an Arisfot Sniper and how to get help with it...

    I cry and want to tear my eyes out, when people ask this one question Quote: “What is a good sniper rifle for 150 bucks?“ or Quote: “Which sniper rifle is better?” (and yet, not posting a single option they chose). I am getting fed up with those questions, because they do not lead to anything. Here are some hints and advices on how to ask and get a better answer. The answer is simple though. There isn’t any. Why? Because any stock AEG can outperform a stock sniper rifle. You’d have to be...
  5. H&K Mk. 23 Mod.0 SOCOM

    When I was getting the H&K Mk. 23 Mod.0 SOCOM, I was asked if I want the springer or the NGB pistol. I did not even bother to answer. Let us take a look at this impressive pistol. How does it work? It is a non-blow-back pistol, therefore the slide is not moving while the pistol is shot. What does that imply? There is less of wear and tear, more gas is spent for each shot rather then for the movement of the slide, more shots etc. Even though the pistol has no blow-back, the pistol is...
  6. The DBoys KAC PDW - One hell of a weapon...

    When I saw the DBoys KAC PDW for the first time, I was amazed. It looks awesome, it shoots very well, it is powerful and yet very, very compact. For its size, the gun is incredibly comfortable. Let's find out the details.... I bought the gun in our store in Prague. I thoroughly tested this gun way before putting it for sale, so here is the information first hand. First of all, how exactly is inside the box? There is the gun, obviously. Then, there is a very well crafted, 80 rounds...
