One Grunt's Opinion: Is It All Drama In Airsoft?

Airsoft in a big way is no longer just a game, mainly because of the culture that now exists around it. To the young boy or girl jumping into airsoft, the hobby won't stay just a game once he/she gets into the social media part of the sport or start doing larger national events. The connectivity of social media takes folks from their corner of the world and lets them see right into the larger community. So that means our culture is always in transition.

One Grenade Ain't Enough? Stack `Em Together For An OMG Effect

Yessiree! The more grenades stacked together, the more effective they become to take out the enemy in rooms and bunkers. Called the Scalable Offensive Hand Grenade (SOHG), this is a new type of hand grenade being tested by the U.S. Army and can perform better than the standard fragmentation grenade. To increase or decrease the power of the SOGH, you either stack up to three SOGHs together or remove them, depending on what the situation warrants.

Need Better Gloves For Freezing Weather? Grab A Pair Of Smart Gloves

Neill Blomkamp Is Set To Direct "Alien 5"

Colonial Marines! Prepare for your next mission! In what probably the most anticipated Alien movie since the 1986 Aliens by James Cameron (the following Alien movies were darn awful, IMHO that I can't recall what they were) and the spin-off movie Prometheus by the original Alien director Ridley Scott, another Alien movie is set to start production. Alien 5 is going to be directed by another in-demand sci-fi director these days, Neill Blomkamp.

You've Seen The "Venom", Now Meet The "Cougar" Muzzle Flash Device

We're back to writing about Muzzle Flash Devices today. It is just ironic that much research is being put into minimizing muzzle flash signatures in real steel guns; but for airsoft, we welcome such feature, no matter if these reveal positions of airsoft shooters. In our quest for the realism in our airsoft guns, we welcome recoil, muzzle climb, blowback, and muzzle flash. These are gun characteristics that gun designers want to eliminate.
