    Hey I am not new to airsoft, but I am new to this forum. My name is Devin I weigh in at about 230 lbs. Stand around 6'2" and wear a size 15 shoe. I am 15 years old and currently have a horrible loadout clothes wise. I wear insulated carhart pants, water proof boots, and a reel tree AP jacket , a zombie mesh mask acomponied by a backwards camo hat. I also wear Mossy Oak gloves. My main primary is a D-Boys Scar L with a wave reflex sight and two 450 round high cap mags.:D

    You are the largest 15 year old I've ever heard of, and hope to meet. Welcome to Airsoft Society from a fellow South Carolinian. Are you a member of our local forums, the AOSC?

    Hola and welcome to the society, here you will be able to rebuild your airsoft life with threads and threads of new information! Up at the top is a search bar, it will look like this.

    One of the greater things about this society is that it's been around FOREVER so you can imagine nearly every simple question has been asked before, such as "what's the best m4 for 150 dollars?", "What's the best brand?", or "Help with DMR build" all that information can be yours (if you're willing to learn that is)!
    Alternatively if you have trouble with the search bar, you can try searching via google and attaching "airsoft society" to the end of it. Like so.

    Now I don't mean to bully you, and you may be wondering why I'm telling you all this new information, you see around here we have had rash of new guys who always ask the same questions, and to be frank, it gets old. So I'm just making you're aware of all this the second you join, so you can help us avoid some of the trouble. Get em while they're young, know what I'm saying?

    Oh make sure to read the rules! http://www.airsoftsociety.com/forums/f10/announcement-rules-regulations.html


    Do you have any tech experience by chance? Techs are always a nice addition to the forum; we always have people asking about builds and people who need help fixing their gun. If you're not that's perfectly fine as well! Hang around here long enough and you'll probably try something or other with your gearbox. One note on posting although, another thing people have a tendency to do when they join (and even some members who've been around a while) is give out poor or simply incorrect information, don't be afraid to share your experiences or opinion, but if you get into a factual argument, please please make sure your facts are right for example please don't post things along the lines of

    First off that would violate the rules which state to use proper spelling and grammar, so let's go ahead and add that in.

    This is better, at least you aren't violating any rules with this, however one of the first things you should learn is that FPS doesn't mean nearly as much as people would like to believe, for example the difference in range between 350 FPS and 380 FPS is negligible. So that isn't really a selling point, also when you think about it that post really doesn't describe much about the gun! Let's try making it a non arguable statement with some more details. A good format (when recommending something) is to find several things you like about the gun and make note of at least one thing you didn't like, this way people can see you're trying to be non biased, for example, I'm much more likely to believe the guy saying "Yeah I personally love goldenball bbs, they get me fantastic range, but I have spotted a high rate of bbs with bubbles in them." than the guy who says, "Goldenball bbs are awesome, they get me fantastic range!" Now adding that all into this quote.

    This is a much better post, however brings me to the last of my points, if you ever tell someone to look for something try to provide a link. If there are several lancer tactical reviews he may find a crap one where a guy fires 5 shots at a paper target on his trash bin some 15 feet away. To avoid this, link him.

    Lastly, because some people don't understand the concept we have people called moderators, who hang about the forum policing it and making sure the rules are followed! You may notice them as some of the guys giving threats:D you are going to want to make sure you check the rules to stay out of the way of those guys, those guys being (Currently active Mods off the top of my head)

    Unless you have some very solid evidence arguing with any mods isn't a good idea.

    That's all for now, read, check out the sales section (classifieds) and post!

    Yes I am a huge 15 year old, which by the way means nothing about my airsoft skill. Being so tall disyributes mu weight fairly well although some of it does show. Some of the weight is in muscle because I bench 185 lbs. Anyway I would hope to see you sometime too. No I am not a member of the local forum. Are you familiar with battle cats in Anderson SC? By the way I'm about 30 minuys from irmo in a small country town with 1 stop light lol.

    Well, I seem to have you beat. I weighed 250 pounds and was 6'3" when I was 15, which was a few months ago.

    Just to let you know, if you click on the down arrow on the guy you want talk back to, it says quote and then you can write back to that guy and everyone knows who you are talking to and it doesn't start confusion.
