Airsoft Skirmishes Montana
Airsoft Montana X-Team Zoo Town Gear Soft

UPCOMING MONTANA AIRSOFT EVENTS.

All noteworthy OPs and skirmishes are posted here.


We are changing our regular monthly skirmish schedule to to the last Saturday of each month in order to accommodate our National Guard and ROTC members.  We have been scheduling skirmishes and training mostly on the first Saturday but due to drills and other commitments required of them we have missed the valuable contributions our military members can provide.

 SKIRMISH AND TRIGGER TIME: 28 APRIL AT EAGLE WATCH

We will not have an organized OP this month, we will be spending the day enjoying force-on-force action, some pistol-only fights, and any other scenarios that our creative team comes up with in the interim, (Brian and Kyle, put on your thinking caps ). Of course all of this could change as regards our day's activity, nothing is carved in stone as of now.

We probably will forgo another swap meet this month; we only just had one a month ago. There will be BBs available for purchase however. With enough interest, that could change too.

Come at 10:00 AM and we will set up at the ATV trailer next to the Duck pen; we will chrono and brief there. Bring charged batteries and everything you will need for a day in the field, we will endeavor to stay on the field replenishing our expendables on site so as to avoid wasting time at the staging areas. If you have comms, bring them. H20 will be available at the hose bibb at the back door of our house.

Be there or be square.

Things to consider when attending an Airsoft Montana event

 

We've been having problems over the last few months with people showing up without the proper gear to play airsoft. I'd like to take a moment to highlight some of those things you will need to keep in mind in order to play airsoft safely and effectively.

Water. And plenty of it. If you show up to an event without a good amount of water and a hydration device to carry it in, you FAIL. I've lost track of how many times people have showed up without canteens and such ... only to be the first to get heat exhaustion. If you are not keeping yourself hydrated you will get sick and that will mean that we will have to focus our attention on taking care of you. Do not assume that we have a spigot with fresh water flowing out of it at every field.

Watch. Or another suitable time-keeping device. If we say we're running chrono and registration from 8 to 9:30 it means we're running chrono and registration from 8 to 9:30. If you choose to show up at 10:30 you will have to wait until we get off the field for lunch or during another break ... because everyone else will have been registered and chrono'd and be on the field ready to go. We will not wait for stragglers who decide to show up when they feel like it.

Eye Pro.
We wrote a whole page - click here to read it - on what proper Eye Pro is. People still keep showing up without it. Read the page. There are lots of details on what proper Eye Pro is.


Got Ammo? Great. It's a good idea to take a few minutes to get ready for an event by filling your magazines, fill your canteens up, check out your guns, et cetera. The time to do that is not as we're heading out to the field after registration and chrono. The time to do that is either before you come out to the field or right after registration and chrono. We give people timed warnings for when the next event is. Be prepared for the next evolution.

If you think this is a rant believe me it's not. Way too often people will show up to an event without an extra battery or charger, without extra BBs, food, or water. Since then we STILL have people show up without water, without proper eye pro... show up after we're ready to take people out to the field: and the list goes on.

The bottom line is EVERYONE needs to take some personal responsibility before they show up to an event.

Thanx and a tip of the Hatlo hat to Rob Kauder of Spokane Airsoft for permission to plagerize his rant (haha)
