Philippine 2010 Election Gun Ban Starts

The chief of the Philippine Police reminded the public that airsoft guns or gun replicas have been included in the election period’s gun ban starting January 10, 2010, until June 09, 2010.

Director Roberto Rosales, chief of the The National Capital Region Police Office, urged airsoft gun owners and enthusiasts, in a statement, to refrain from carrying their guns so as not to violate Commission on Elections Resolution 8714, which included airsoft guns and gun replicas in the list of items covered by the gun ban.

Death Of The Chinese Clones

I’ve been hearing news lately that the Chinese government has stopped “all” production of airsoft guns. I thought they were only rumors until I saw this.

Death Of The Chinese Clones

“Shenzhen Customs officers destroy replica guns in the warehouse of its Huizhou anti-smuggling office Thursday. About 2,790 guns and 1,500 kilograms of spare parts were destroyed, Customs officials said Friday. The popularity of field warfare games has contributed to increased demand for replica guns in the domestic market, which has led to an increase in replica gun smuggling cases, officials said. The guns resemble the real thing in color, weight, size and quality, and as such can be used by criminals to threaten victims in robberies and muggings. So far nearly 12,000 smuggled replica guns and spare parts have been seized by the Customs this year.” (from Shenzhen Daily)

Is this the beginning of the end for Chinese-made airsoft guns?

This is the new Tavor Bullup Carbine used by the IDF at Operation Cast Lead. I’m wondering if  Airsoft manufacturers will someday produce this kind of gun. Good for CQB Operations.

Thanks to my Flickr contact, Oren Rosenfeld for these photos, who is currently with the IDF troops at Operation Cast Lead.

Inhibitions 1: Getting Started – Airsoft terms? Or Simply Phrases We’re Used to Saying.

Ever since we started playing airsoft, we always encounter phrases, uttered by most airsofters, that we often regard to as “airsoft terms,” if there is such a thing – phrases that only those who play the sport understand. A very simple example of this is: for a first time airsofter, who is about to purchase his first AEG (to those first-time airsofters, I’ll tell you what AEG means later), goes to an airsoft shop already determined and has chosen his AEG model and brand, asks the attendant, “what is its FPS?” For a moment there you’d think, what is wrong with asking that question? Well, are you asking for its unit or are you asking for the initial velocity of the AEG? Ummmhhmm! But, don’t you worry ’cause the attendant will surely answer that question. “It’s between 350 to 380 FPS, sir.” See, they always answer you. I don’t know if other countries make the same mistake…ummm… well, it’s not really a mistake but just a slight mix-up of the terms. Even if you ask other airsofters the same question, they will surely answer you. Sometimes, players would not ask for the FPS but, “What is its chrono?” Oh, you mean the reading in the chronograph!? Right. But hey, it’s a shortcut. I’m even worst. The first time I played with seasoned airsofters, they asked for my AEG to have it “chronoed.” I said, “Yeah, of course. Let’s do this.” I had no idea what the hell he meant by chrono. When I saw that they were inserting the tip of my barrel (they call it flash hyder, I have always referred to it as muzzle, whatever) into what seemed to be a box with numbers on it, I told myself, “Oh, that’s chrono.” Pathetic, but forgivable for a first-timer.
