Why I Love Airsoft

I was 21 when i first became interested in airsoft. Like a lot of people, I first played in backyards with springers from Walmart. Within a month or so I had upgraded to a low powered AEG. I was hot stuff with my college classmates, since none of us had any experience with airsoft. Then I went to my first event: Op Savannah by Mad Ivan scenarios. There I met several people from the North Texas Area who began to educate me on what I didn't know. One of them even traded me an old JG M16 for my arsenal of springers. I still have that M16 four years later. Every time I hit the field its in the trunk of my car, just in case.

From that first game I started to play at Fast Action Airsoft (FAA) in Fort Worth. I was also introduced to the Texas Milsim Association, an organization I full heartily support. I was even allowed to command the Cartel forces at their first Killing Fields event. I went into a bit of a down spin in 2013 and took a two year hiatus from the sport. When I came back, among my friends it was if I had never left.

I came back to the sport in May of last year. Since then I have attend 3 events, one as a player-admin, and tons of weekend skirmishes. I play at either Temple Tactical & Airsoft in Temple, Texas or at 878 Airsoft in Waxahachie, Texas. The class of players at these skirmishes are amazing. They are honest, kind, willing to lend a hand, and have amazing sportsmanlike conduct.

Simply put, I love this sport because I love the players. Airsoft in Texas has such an amazing player base that when my non-airsoft playing friends send me links of people acting like junkwagons I have the simple defense, "Not all players are like that," and then I invite them to the field. That is the best way I know of to counter the people who want airsoft to go away.

Stay safe out there,

Bishop
