Hello from Nor Cal

Hello to all you snipers out there, my name is Aaron and I have been looking around this forum for a while, but never really decided to join until now. I've been airsofting for quite a few years now, but I've only started sniping this past couple years. I started out in the assault role with a JG AK47 and a KJW Full-auto M9 and it was fun, but once I tried sniping, I never turned back. I eventually sold some of my gear and bought the Well MB01 L96 and a SOCOM Gear M1911 MEU. I wanted to join this forum for help if I had any questions about upgrades or anything, so I hope you guys could help me out.

What part of NorCal? I don't get to play that much anymore, but it's nice to keep tabs on other snipers in the area to see if there are any games going on...

edit: Scarecrow - where outside of Yosemite? I spent a year just outside of Oakhurst, amazing area. There isn't that much airsoft around there (at least when I was there), but I think TF50 has pretty good numbers in that area.
I know San Ramon! I grew up in Walnut Creek before headding to the peninsula. There are actually more and more fields in this area, but most of them have really odd rules for snipers. I haven't been to Area 48 but their field looks interesting. That field is pretty tied up in politics though (land is owned by a San Jose city council member).

If you don't mind driving a little further there is ARC Airsoft. (Paintball field that is expanded and used for airsoft on a regular basis)

I'm not sure how old you guy(s) are, but ARC and A48 have the same issue; "12 year-olds". Now, I'm sure that since you're both here, even if you're young youre more mature than most of these kids out there. Between the "speed queen" fillipinos that cheat all day long and the 12 year olds that cry because my $150 ASR took them out with their $1200 ARES or Right-hook; there is only so much that a guy can take.

Now, there are two fields around that are very no B.S.
The first is ORD:
18+ great field. Better for DMRs than BASRs probably, it can be tight at times, but there are some great nests. The only down side is that they have pretty standard sniper AoE, that is only granted on a case by case basis once you have a rep at the field. But a well tuned 400fps DMR can do some serious work.

And then theres Vacavillian airsoft:
Private field with DMR and BASR rules. They have games every weekend. I have yet to make it up there, but I troll their forums and they seem like a very no BS group of guys with some good games going on.
See less See more
but I've seen some pretty bad cheating from the run and gun Filipinos (I'm half Filipino though, so you better watch what you say, son haha).
lol as long as you dont light me up at 5ft, inside with an AEG shooting 60 BPS with after swapping the spring after your chrono tag... and call your hits; we're cool.

The not calling your hits I can tolerate more than breaking ROE, if people dont call their hits I just get closer and aim for the face :p
