Blacksheep MilSim – Part 3

Bravo 21 adopted me as one of their own, so I got to play on. This time, I was guarding the tunnel entrance from the police station next door. I heard some ruckus from on the other side, and stood fast at my position, with my G&G pointed down, ready to pull the trigger. The last I had seen, Bravo still had control of the police station, but a lot can happen while you’re in a basement, and unable to see what’s going on. I opted to climb down theRead More
When it comes to batteries in your gun there are two main types of batteries. There are Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) and Lithium Polymer (LiPo). The NiMH is the standard type of battery that almost any Automatic Electric Gun (AEG) can run off of, whereas the LiPo usually requires a MOSFET to be installed to use. First off we will touch on what each of the components of the batteries mean. The rate of fire of the gun is dependent of the voltage of the battery. The higher the voltage,Read More

Blacksheep MilSim – Part 2

The next morning, we woke up at 0700 and get ready for the kickoff of the event at 1200. Getting into my mutilcam was a weird experience. With the exception of just trying on the trousers, blouse, and utility cap, I hadn’t worn anything resembling a uniform in over 15 years. I opted not to blouse my boots, though I felt funny with my trouser legs just dangling onto my boots. Sure, I hadn’t been in for so long, but sometimes, no matter how long it’s been, it doesn’t feelRead More

Introduction to Basic Tactical Movement

For the first article on tactical movement we will start with the individual. In order for the team to operate successfully everyone must be able to perform simple maneuvers as individuals, which can be applied to a team setting. The first movement we will touch on is the basic patrol. While patrolling your rifle should be angled across your chest, muzzle down toward your weak side. You simply walk at whatever the pace of the patrol is. This normally tends to be a slower pace. Next we have the CombatRead More

Blacksheep MilSim – Part 1

Before I get into the event, I want to give a little bit of a background. I started with on the Monday after the 4th of July weekend earlier this year. I was hired by my internet technology savvy, not my airsoft knowledge. I had never been to an airsoft event, and didn’t own any airsoft guns or tactical gear. I was diving face first into learning what I could with no practical experience, but between my coworkers, the internet, and some other friends, I was soaking in aRead More

Tippman Airsoft M4 Carbine

The new M4 Carbine by Tippmann is a promising introduction to their airsoft line. The unit is designed to run off of either HPA via a remote air rig or standard 12g CO2 cartridges and is the first of its kind to incorporate a design without the use of any electronics. The rate of fire and velocity is adjustable using a standard Allen key instead of a complex fire control unit.

Airsoft Patches

Morale patches often consist of cool designs and catchy phrases. However, they don’t provide much more beyond the looks. Identification patches have a far more vital role in all airsoft operations. Knowing who is who and what their job is proves to be essential for being an effective team member. These patches include medical, flag, and other ID patches. In most military simulations, medic patches are required for each squad to easily identify who their medic is. The faster a medic can get to the scene where the player wasRead More
