this is a good idea to have a post to introduce ourself. So, let's add 10 lines to this post:
my name is fabien, i am 36, french and work in UK. i have 2 boys a home (the old one is 8 and waiting his 12th birthday to come to paintball with me).
I like science fiction and was into table top role playing games and CCG when i was younger and in france. I had my mid life crisis 4 years ago, starting with paintball scenario in uk, then moving to airsoft in order to be able to play during the week and finished by a HSV club sport (sold as vauxhall VXR8 in UK).
about airsoft, i started 2 y ago with a collection of M9 pistol from TM and WE that i have now sold. I am not keen on AEG, so i know own 4 TM hicapa and one tm xtreme. Most of them are tuned and achieve AEG range and accuracy without any trouble. i have not try ipsc yet but i will one day. here is a picture of the collection a month ago.
Since that, i got a new frame freedom art for a 4.3/xtreme, i have broken the red slide, i am trying to sale the tm hi-capa custom match. as it say on some other forum, airsoft is addictive... this is why i did advise on this forum to contact airsoft supplier to help you lobbying with the officials. WE, TM, KSC, ... are close to australia and should be willing to open a new market for them.
now, why the hell am i interested in airsoft australia. Well, i have passed 4 interview, 2 to go, for a job in adelaide... if things go well, i may be there by july/august. So i do hope that goes well and that you get airsoft legalised by the same time
