It’s official…burrrr!

It’s official, fall has arrived and if you happen to live on the East coast, it’s already getting cooler. The record low snowfall of last year might be a distant memory to most of the country by the new year so it’s time to get your winter gear on and hit the snowy woods for some tactical fun!

Along with Airsoft, many choose to paint the fresh snow a wide array of colors by going to war with paintball guns. Paintball guns are a great way to have fun with your tactical exercises. When your day is done will you be one of the lucky ones who escape without any paint smears on your tactical vest?

What could be better than defending your snow fortress from invaders focused on taking what belongs to you? If you have plans on defending the wilderness throughout the winter, make sure you keep yourself warm and safe

Get the most of your sight

Proper sighting is very important for accuracy.

Most people interested in just about any hobby wants the latest, greatest and highest quality equipment so they can get the most out of his or her hobby. This is especially true for plinkers and tactical enthusiasts. For this reason, accessories such as optic sights are extremely popular pieces of equipment. Many weapons have built-in optical sights but if yours doesn’t, its a good bet that you can get an optional sight and mount it yourself.

A sight is only as good as it’s accuracy. Fortunately, even modestly priced optical sights offer excellent sighting capabilities but it’s very important to take the time to set your sight properly if you want to get the most out of your investment.

As an example, this exerpt was taken from How to Sight-In a Hunting Rifle By  Chuck Hawks:

“Start at the 25 yard position. Put up a large paper target. I usually use an NRA 100 yard small bore rifle target, which has a large black bulls-eye. Get really comfortable on the shooting bench, so that none of your muscles are cramped or in tension. Bring a pillow or a folded-up blanket to sit on (as required) to get your head and shoulders at a comfortable height at the bench rest.”

You can also take a lot of great tips directly from the manufacturer of your weapon. For example, one of your best selling brands; Daisy offers their customers a comprehensive guide to sighting in a scope on their website. A quick search of the website for your manufacturer will likely yield similar steps.

If you are a weekend plinker or you target practice regularly, you need to have an accurately sighted scope. otherwise you risk erratic shot patterns that could cost you big in any type of shooting competition.

Keeping it fun and safe

Always protect yourself

Tactical exercises and sporting events are on the rise across the nation. A tactical exercise mimics “real life” combat situations. During one of these exercises, you can be a solo agent on your own or you can work within a team. When playing such games, its important to work on your cohesiveness so you can fight as a well oiled machine. After all, you are in the field acting as though you are a special ops Marine or Navy Seal so it’s vital to succeed in your planned mission.

Some groups; usually consisting of a bunch of buddies playing weekend warrior are loosely regulated and require very little skill to have a good time. With the right protective gear, you can fight and brag about your conquests over a few beers at the end of the day. However, some organized groups will not kindly accept renegade warriors on their tactical practice fields. A rouge operation could quikcly find your group banned from the premises.

It’s always important, if your team plans to be a serious contender in the world of Airsoft tactical to be well trained in your craft. There are many places online where you can gather information on how to train an Airsoft team. This Wikihow article does a great job of offering a jumping off point for any group looking to make a serious impact. Have fun and remember, always keep it safe!
