Play airsoft for any stretch of time and you will begin to pick up on those things that are cringe worthy. These are the things that make you just go “UGH”! Chances are, if you are reading this, you have been out airsofting a few times. Maybe you have your own list of things that are cringe-worthy, and maybe they will match up with ours.
You don’t always need to go to fields to have a great time with airsoft or get an exciting game type. A lot of times you can get the same enjoyment from setting up private games with your friends wherever able. Especially for those of you who don’t have the necessary fields close by to deliver standing game play. I know that as much as we love our local fields, it isn’t always viable for us to get to them.
So in today’s blog post, and more blog posts to come, we will share game type ideas to help get more diversity in to your airsoft experience. This is a game type that I first played with my group of friends while studying in college and playing at a local area the National Parks service granted us to play on (as long as we informed them prior to our trips out).

The owner at Augusta Airsoft sent me an invitation to come out and play at his field located in Stuarts Draft, VA several months ago. I was finally able to make it out there yesterday…Below is my review of my experience going to and playing airsoft at Augusta Airsoft, LLC. Along with some information about the field…
For those that use navigation equipment, just punch in 152 Johnson Drive, Stuarts Draft, VA and that will get you there. For me…I live in Hampton, VA so it was just under a three (3) hour drive for me. Convenience stores and gas stations are close by the field just up the main drive and within just a few miles of the field located on the main highway.
Information About the Field:
Hours of Operation are Saturdays from 12:30PM to 5:00PM and Tuesdays from 5:30PM to 7:30PM (Rain or Shine)
Admission is $20.00 on Saturday and $10.00 on Tuesday
Rentals are $10.00
I highly recommend anyone planning to go to Augusta Airsoft, LLC that you check out their website. There you will find their safety rules and requirements posted, as well as an electronic waiver that you must sign before you go out to the field. There is also other information so again check out their website before heading out there.
Have you ever wondered how Airsoft GI Events come to be? After a hard fought BB Wars Event, have you ever been curious as to how we make them happen? Dave from our Texas store (who also happens to be the man responsible for coordinating a lot of the games here at GI) is pulling back the curtain on some of the magic (but not all, that wouldn’t be any fun now would it) so you can see how we make things happen!
I’ve been using a KWA LM4 PTS for over a year now and I’m beyond the point of worrying about other people’s opinions when I say this but… I love it!
In the years leading up to my ownership of an LM4 I have been routinely infatuated with gas blow backs. In fact, I almost always have a sidearm on my person for airsoft games. That’s because having to go for my sidearm in airsoft games is one of my favorite parts about playing. Going for my sidearm means that “fit” is hitting the “shan” and I just need to keep shooting to stay in the game and I live for moments in airsoft like that.
So beyond having side arms on my person, I graduated into the gas blow back submachine gun market about 3 years ago with my purchase of a KWA KMP9 along with a Danger Werx Flute valve (so it would shoot under the 350 FPS CQB limit). Not only does a KMP9 from KWA have excellent trigger response, build, and an absurd rate of fire, but the weight it mostly concentrated on or around the pistol grip. This means that with the stock out it’s incredibly easy to fire the gun one-handed and transition between targets quickly. This makes the KMP9 and excellent gun to use with my battle axe.
