A Little About Me:
I have been playing airsoft for 7 years, and as an airsoft pistol only combatant (APOC) for about 5 of those years when my old beginner M4 finally broke leaving me with just my sidearm for airsoft games. Since then I have adapted my tactics and strategies accordingly to make up for the lack of an AEG primary, using speed, stealth and smart tactics to even the odds.
Each time I play I can expect to be out-gunned and out-matched in firepower. But the solution is simple: outflank, outsmart and out-play the other side. Underestimate me at your own risk. Watch the shadows and expect the unexpected when fighting an experienced APOC.
As you could imagine, this involves a good deal of crawling, rolling, vaulting, short dashes, lying still and slinking.
On another note, I recently acquired a tricked-out G&P Mk12 SPR and have been shifting into a Designated Marksman role, especially since mil-sim teams/games don\'t really have a need for an APOC.
More Info On APOCs:
Basically, we play pistols only 80% of the time or more and our loadouts usually accommodate pistol-only play with the ability to carry a pistol and plenty of mags for it comfortably. Special high-speed, low-drag or ultra-minimalist loadouts are relatively common.
You can find detailed information about APOCs and the Pistol Only Revolution HERE, however you have to copy and paste the link:
What I Do On Airsoftsociety:
While I am not an all-knowing expert on airsoft as a whole, I happily pounce on questions related to gas guns and especially pistols, and am open to learning more and more about them.
I have written a few guides on airsoft guns HERE:
I am becoming something of a KWA gun expert, particularly with the M9/M93R models if you take a look at the list of guns I have handled below...
What I Am Currently Doing In Airsoft:
- Trying to find the right pistol to make an ultimate pistol build out of for myself
- Trying to round out my DMR build for my SPR
- Working with a friend from the field as well as electrical engineer majors to design a reusable airsoft DISTRACTION grenade
- I am currently trying to constantly sell/buy/upgrade/sell at least two airsoft guns besides my custom one to get a chance to handle more pistols, make a small profit and gain valuable GBB experience.
- Trying to get people at my college to jump into airsoft! Need more guns to do that though
- Also trying to help a bit with PEVs Paintball in NoVA in spreading the word about them and their new airsoft business.
My best confirmed kill to date using a pistol was at ~140ft w/ a KJW M9 GBB Pistol
