The Fort

This coming Sunday, 25th April, sees the reopening of The Fort airsoft site at Cluny Clays in Fife, Scotland. This site is owned and operated by the guys who run Airsoftworld and has achieved great fame with the help of scoutthedoggies videos. The Fort has been closed for over a year now so this will be a chance for me to play and film at a site i've heard so much about and only ever seen the site through scouts videos. I can't wait!!

Last Sunday was a POW weekend with a large turnout despite the very rainy start to the day. I managed to get a bit of filming done but to be honest got so caught up playing that i didn't film nearly as much as i had intended. I was in modern loadout with my L85 and a few extra magazines that were bought for my birthday. Normally i only cary 1 hi-cap for the L85 but with 4 hi-caps in total i was armed to the teeth and able to pour tonnes of beebs into the enemy. Great fun.

On the YouTube front i managed to break through the 7000 subscriber mark and its continuing to grow daily as are the strange questions i get asked. Its funny how people see you as a world authority on something because you've posted a couple of videos. People are constantly asking me to review more guns and gear despite having made it clear i'm not sponsored and can only review what i own personally. Some guys are even sending me up to 20 links for guns that they have seen and expect me to view them all individually and then give them a run down on the pro's and con's of each gun. It baffles me that they can spend all that time writing me emails with numerous links but cant use google!!

crazyNCman has started up a website which is a great idea,, and allows airsofters the ability to ask as many questions as they like and get answers/opinions from fellow airsofters. Check it out its a pretty good idea.

On the personal front its now only about 6 weeks until my son will be born. I'm looking forward to it although i'm obviously still a bit nervous as a first time Dad and having to watch my wife go through the ordeal of childbirth. I just hope all goes smoothly on the day! Will it affect my airsoft and filming? I will still be airsofting and filming but there will be times when i'll probably need to give it a miss so my wife gets a break, especially in the early months when the baby will be up through the night for feeding.

Anyway, looking forward to this Sunday at The Fort and getting some film of it up on YT.

CYA later guys!

New P.O.W site

Sunday 4th April 2010 was the official opening of the new site for P.O.W and what a bloody fantastic site it is. Its in the same woods as always but they have relocated and doubled the size of the overall gaming areas. We have lost the areas known as Bocage, Train Station, Church, Village and Fuel Dump but have kept Monte Wood. We now have an area which extends outwards from Monte and current developments include a bunker network and an area known as Jerry Island which is a fortification surrounded by a stream which gives a Moat and Castle type effect, very difficult to attack!!

The site owners have big plans for further development with hopes of a D'Day Beach Head among other ideas. This site will be even more of a world envy than it previously was. Now that the new site has opened i have decided to postpone 'Airsoft Week' until May so that i can capture as much film as possible of the new site. I promise it will be worth the wait guys!!!

And a funny moment from a game on Sunday....

I was on Red team and in my modern gear with my AA L85 which has an upgraded piston assembly. We were in the new bunker complex with Yellow team attacking us and i had a duel with a sniper who thought he could shoot me from a range i couldn't trouble him. He was aiming at me through a scope but couldn't hit me with his Dragunov rifle whilst my AA L85 was putting shots straight into his position and beyond and forcing him to move position and keep his head down. He was so pissed off that my AEG was outranging his sniper rifle that he complained to the site owners that i had a 'Hot' rifle. Ernie the site owner chroneod my L85 which registered 321FPS as an average. The site limit for AEGs is 350FPS and 500FPS for snipers. The sniper didn't feel so smart when Ernie showed him the chrono results LOL. Just goes to show that FPS isn't everything and that an AEG with good internals can put out BBs with fantastic range and accuaracy. My L85 is consistently shooting well in excess of 50 metres and is without doubt a brilliant AEG to skirmish with.

British Summertime

Summer is officially here with the changing of the clocks which makes it lighter for an hour longer at night. Don't ask..its something to do with farmers and harvests and livestock...i think!! All it means to me is that its the start of some better weather, hopefully, and my birthday is this month. Normally for birthdays and christmas i'd get some shiny new airsoft toys but with a baby on the way we are tightening the purse strings so my wife and i will probably head out for a nice meal together and i'll have a wee drink, or two...

This coming weekend is also an airsoft weekend so i'll be at POW again but haven't decided yet between modern or WWII kit. I'll decide on the day. I will have my camera with me so i'll be recording the action as it unfolds with footage for that night on YT and for later in the month for 'Airsoft Week'. When is it you ask!! I'll let you know in good time LOL.

The gaming areas at POW have been greatly expanded so i'll capture some footage of the new game zones for you guys. Its a huge expansion programme which will go on for some time and greatly improve the site overall. Can't wait to see it and play there as i've heard about some of the plans the site owners have.

Any questions guys just drop me a line ;)
