Will they go back to "Mid-Realm Adventures"?

Will I risk being thrashed by a PVC pipe sword again?

My favorite tree, the big white pine waaaay back in the corner of the Village, being pelted by plastic pellets, some squid hiding behind it with his AK-47 and a bunch of "hi-caps".

I want to die now, please.......................

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

They're obviously not gonna mix the games and have airsofters on the same field as the paintballers at the same time. It's just another revenue stream, I can't see it being anything but good for everyone around. Airsofters are really underserved in New Hampshire, they have RPC and a handful of fields down in Mass, but they're all at least sixty miles from AG. I'm gonna support them with the airsoft, why the hell not?

For the same reason the "Plastics" don't support Paintball:
"They're going to leave their little plastic pellets everywhere and ruin OUR park."


RPC= "Rockingham Paintball Club".

The "Airsofters" wouldn't share the park with us Paintballers, they claimed that our paint was "ruining their expensive TAC gear and cammies".
They don't do much Paintball at Rockingham Paintball Club anymore.....
Therefore, I can't play Paintball there.
So, will I lose AG to those "Plastic Invaders" who cant stand to see their gear get dirty?

The balance of players tipped in favor of the Airsofters there, there were more of them, they played more frequently, they put more cash into Eric's business, so they won the park. We lost out.
At least I get to ref there a couple times a year and remember ripping the place up with a Phantom or my KP.
Will we lose AG?

Heck, last years TAC stock game at Strategy Plus had us sharing the woods with the "Plastics"
We actually had to wait for a field.

I'm certain that there's room for both of us, but if they won't play on a field with paint splats on it, and there are more of them than there are of us, we're gone. Simple economics.

AMEN BROTHER!

But, I see the trash they leave at Splatttttland, and it sort of upsets me. I know that they're just "kids", and I always haul out a bag, but they should at least clean up after themselves.
They won't get that place......

This is actually true for NE fields^

We ran Airsoft games the past 2 years. We actually have a game coming up on the 13th. The BB's don't litter the field that bad. You won't be stepping on them and going for a ride. We've found there is a lot more angst toward the PB players from the airsoft guys than the other way around. It's another revenue stream to dump back into the fields which is always a good thing :-) Just need to keep the peace between the airsoft Mil-Sim guys and well...everyone else.

I actually signed up for the game on the 13th not long after getting my airsoft rig. It's not hard to convince the airsofters that it's better that we coexist for the most part. The serious prima donnas won't even touch a field that's had paintballs fired on it, so you don't actually encounter them often. A field like AG or OSG won't draw the jerks, from what I've seen.

I learned a lot of stuff by reffing at RPC, stuff I never knew.

War has changed. There are no longer any "regular" units in the military. Everyone serves in some sort of "Elite" unit which is waaaay more badass than the unit you served in.
There are no more cooks, truck drivers, artillerymen, supply personnel, clerks, combat engineers and the like. These mundane jobs are carried out by "Contactors".
Everyone is a Sniper of some sort, with a 2+ mile kill that can't be recorded because they were using some sort of secret fin-stabilized .50 round made in Iceland, originally designed for the Boys Anti-Tank rifle, powered by C4 and nitroglycerine, which was banned in Geneva. (It's a war-crime to use one).

Places like Iraq and Afghanistan are cleaned and sanitized before and after each engagement so that the American soldiers don't soil their TAC gear and expensive cammies.

Everyone is awarded Bronze Stars, Silver Stars and were reccomended for the CMH by their CO for "whacking 400 Hadji's single-handedly with a dull deer antler", but lost out to some dude who was awarded it posthumosly.

Airsoft. It's not for pussies.

Yeah, a lot of those guys dress up and go measure their dicks. Didn't this **** exist during the beginning of our sport too? I was lucky enough to jump in a game with a bunch of people who just wanted to play a freaking game, and when you're in that crowd, it's gonna be a lot of fun. I'll never play in a game with a dress code.

As an official response to all of this let me try to break this down!

1) AG Paintball has been in business for 25 years and we have been growing every single year.. (except for the last year that cynthia owned it... that year sucked!)
2) We are the largest paintball field in NH with tens of thousands of customers coming through our doors every season
3) We have the largest pro shop in NH with thousands of customers purchasing gear every year
4) We make 100% of our income from paintball
5) We feel that at this point it is in our (read everyones) best interest if we keep growing and expanding into new markets. Airsoft is one of those markets with those players being severely under served in the NH market. Bringing in those players will lead to more players, more money, more fields more more more! This will appeal to both more airsoft players but also more paintball players!
6)We are absolutely... under no circumstance ever stop being a paintball park... we would quite literally need 40,000 airsoft players a year to just do the same amount of business that paintball currently provides us. And we just don't see that happening.
7) There will still be paintball play every sat and sun all season... as well as wed during the summer months
8) More information about airsoft will be coming soon but all the bb's will be required to be the bio bb's which will biodegrade just like paintballs...

I think i have addressed everyone's concerns but of course you guys can always reach out to us if you have any other questions! And we look forward to seeing everyone out on the field for paintball, airsoft whatever you want!
