New Member-saying Hello

I suppose what seperates us from the pack is that we like to incorporate military simulation (much like you would find in airsoft), in to our nerf wars. Most of our homeades are modefied asthetically to resemble actual firearms, we wear camoflauge and play objective based scenarios while we nerf.
More than anything else I would like to say I am extremley impressed with some of the innovations that have come about in my abscence from the nerf internet scene. Boltsniper, your homeade designs are of the highest caliber and my team has built several of your FAR rifles. We are currently attempting to improve upon and refine your excellent design to cater more towards our diverse needs on the nerf batlefield.

You should try and attend some of the big East Coast wars, Talio would love to go against your mil-sim teams. At least I think he would.
I'm not entirely sure how you can do mil-sim with such inaccurate and slow-loading guns (at least compared to real weapons).

If you're into Milsim I say go for it, especially if you set up your scenarios to level the playing field. The reason I personally would not do Milsim is because I have no interest in mock warfare. I dig some of the video games, but for the most part, I have not come from a combat background. Shooting has always been a sportsman activity. Hunting, target shooting and eventually some wargame type things. It was never about war, it was always about the sport of the game. When I got into airsoft, I didn't like it because it wasn't a game, it was simulation. I don't play games to pretend, I play games because they're interesting, challanging and fun. That's why I hate Tom Clancy video games. It's trying to hard to be realistic and sure they've accomplished that, but I feel like I'm working, not playing a game. I dig Halo because it's fun and doesn't take itself seriously. It's a game meant to be fair, balanced, but challanging. That and frankly, I'm not calling anyone sargent. Screw that, don't give me orders, or I'll shoot your ass. Simple as that. I like teamwork, but teamwork doesn't always mean a command hierarchy. In fact, I think in Nerf it's better if everyone has the same level and respect for each other, however you take the time to agree on a course of action rather then having one person telling you what to do. Keep everyone at the same level and same smarts and it will be like a unit of sargents.
Just my personal opinion, but whatever you find fun, I'm not going to discriminate as long as you don't try to change the game for the rest of us. Enjoy your stay.

I certainly am not going to try and change the game for everyone else I just wnt to show everyone that you can bring milsim in to nerf. I dont know about everyone else but when I played with nerf as a young child my friends and I played war. We imagained ourselves battleing bad guys in far off places and smothered our faces in camoflauge paint while we blasted each other with nerf guns . It was great fun and now as we have grown, we have taken it to the next level, even though we play airsoft and paintball we have not abandoned nerf because it is our roots. Some of my friends have entered the military, some have gone to college and some like me are still in high school, but no matter how many years or miles seperate us we will always get together to play war.

Talio, maybe you guys could drive over to him? It seems alot of the nerfers on the East Coast can drive. At least from what I can tell by reading the nerf war topics.
Posted 17 July 2005 - 07:12 PM
If that's the case, I'm sure there are enough adults in the group who are both responsible enough and who also drive to take a small amount of your 35 man team down to Joisey to show these guys "how it's done", hmmm?
We have active duty Marines and Airforce perosnell in our Clan all of whom put the Suit training they learned in the military to good use when we nerf...
...no matter how many years or miles seperate us we will always get together to play war.
I also share Talio's opinion regarding mil-simming in Nerf. If it does give you a rush to get out and play soldier, then it's okay in my book. It's just that in this time of war, with people probably only a couple years older than you getting blown apart by the real thing, it doesn't fare well with me to hear of people wanting to lay down some smack about how superior their military-styled training can dominate a game played with plastic kid's toys.
If that is the case, then I'm sure your teammates could absolutely wipe out Al-Qaida and the Middle Eastern militants who are still holding out even with our country's finest soldiers (Special Forces units, etc.) meeting their matches and working hard to eliminate the elements standing in the way of democracy.
But I don't want to go do a GW Bush on you guys. I'd really like to see some pictures of your clan, armament (FARs, baby!), and some action shots of wars you hold...what kinds of opposition you have (balanced battle, or your killer fire team against some weekend warriors?) Not to mention some tips on what works for you in the kind of environment you Nerf in (which probably varies greatly between geographical areas).
Keep everyone at the same level and same smarts and it will be like a unit of sargents.
I agree, but you don't want your sergeants to spend all day long looking at their "privates". (Old military joke).
The most important thing is, though, to have fun and not take it too seriously. I usually can't stop laughing the whole time we run our big (as in 4 on 4 skirmishes) tag games around our facility. 3:15 rules usually.
Oh, and yes. Welcome to NerfHaven. Glad to see representation from the mil-sim side of the community.

It's to bad you live in hawaii I bet there are not many wars there.Wait what am I saying<b> you live in hawaii you lucky bastard.</b>

Talio has been around forever, there's quite a few pictures of the big East Coast wars with him in it, I wouldn't worry about him raping you. Now I'd watch out for Shindig if I were you...
Ompa, you slay me 'shuga.
I guess it's time to shed my thoughts in regards to milsim with Nerf. I've always felt Nerf and milsim did not go together. It seems to me that a lot of the people attracted to milsim would hit up Paintball. The reason I say that is the range of paintball guns are much superior to that of Nerf, and I would expect that would give a much more realistic expereince.
However, perhaps I am missing something. This is certainly not the first group of milsim guys that I've come across. I've seen websites of 50 man armies in the midwest. So I guess the whole milsim idea is quite a draw. What this shows most if the beauty of Nerf; it is completely customizable.
Nerf on guys!

Ever tried Lazertag milsim? I would think it would work better than nerf.

Don't worry no one was saying you were arrogant, but maybe me (including others in Jersey) are a little big headed. Other then the south and midwest, we've all played a hell of a lot and against a ton of players. It's hard to think that we're not some of the best there is. However, I'm kind of glad you're not coming around, because I'd really want to put my best foot forward, and that's not really what Nerf is about for me anymore. I spent a while trying to really play, but frankly, it's just a game and I just want to have fun with it. It would still be cool to play against one of those groups though.

You're in HS with no drivers license.
You lead a 35 man nerf (converted to airsoft mid-thread?) club which includes active duty Marines and Airforce (both plural) and college students.
You have constructed several FARs and improved on them in vague and unspecified ways.
You do not have access to a digicam to show us your FARs or your team.
You won't allow Talio to come nerf with you guys because your parents, unconcerned with you galavanting around with a bunch of off-duty marines, would freak if a sysadmin joined the party.
Posted 18 July 2005 - 11:06 AM
I can see how you enjoy milsim, but dont you find the 50' ranges and low velocity a stumbling block? Seem's kind of hard to do a milsim with nerf guns I can dodge just by stepping to the side. Most real guns are a bit harder to dodge. I know from experience.
