I would like to thank Brian for the amazing time last night. It was good to get to meet all of you.

Hopefully we might have gained a few more members of our units.

Yup... would like to thank Brian as well! Always good to see everyone.

Scott looked great in Class A's.

got to shoot the 30 cal but it kept jamming. Need to repair the feed system.

Finally walked through the door at 2:30 am. I'm glad that I have an understanding wife... so I would like to thank her as well.

The one fellow has an MG-42, guess who's side he's on! Very Happy
Col.Tiker is his username, cool guy!

Sadly it was not at the actual event, just in spirit.

Good to hear the evening was enjoyable with an enthusiastic turnout. Great pictures. The Class A's look sharp. Made me think for a second to actually get some.

Shoei MG42? That's a deep pockets investment. Hope really it turns ok for that guy. That's a $3000+ investment for a skirmishable piece. You can buy a lot of cool gear for that chunk of change. Other than the cool factor I haven't seen or read anything great about the Shoei MG42 or neo classic hpa airsoft in general. The few I have seen in the field the last few years are ok but seem to need a lot of TLC and perform no better than most aegs. Good item for die hard hobbyists I imagine.

Should we expect more 101st or FSSF guys soon?

I think the interst was more for the German side. Other then Scott's friend... and he was on the fence.

I brought a few items to swap, but once the chatting started it totally skipped my mind, haha.

However, a SwapMeet section in the Classifieds might not be a bad idea.

I don't think you really need another section... just note that you would like to trade instead of sell.

That was loads of fun.. my pleasure to host..

Great to see and meet everyone,

Looking forward to hitting the field at "A bridge to nowhere"

Best part of the night was watching the group dynamic..

Yanks and Brits / Canadians all Kozy.. and the Germans all aloof .. except once the beer came out .. then we are just one big happy group.

Nice job with the pics Akos... you really have the feel of the period photo.

You could mix them in with real shots of the day and you wouldn't know. I'm going to have to have you do some work for me. Wink

Haha! Thanks!

But 90% of that is a free (automatic) photo editor thingy.
The name of it escapes me.
