So, I was just wondering if any of you had ever been to a MilSim event? And if so, I definitely like to hear a few stories and the works just to get to know you guys a little more, and learn a little about the event from people who have actually experienced it.

I've personally hosted a MilSim game myself. It was The Midwest Sniper Cup 2008. A lot of fun to say the least, and it definately takes it up a notch, almost to the level of actual Military Training Simulations. The only downside of course is that age and actually looking the part can take effect majorly in this, because in MilSim... It really ruins the flavor of the game to see (And I don't mean any offense to anyone) a 14 year old decked out in gear with hair down to his shoulders. However, a lot of members on my team have attended Northern Wind and Operation Lion Claws events and they have had nothing but great battle stories, some that can only be matched by living the experience first hand.

I have been to a few Milsim games here in Ohio. Watch out they get addicting. I didn't attend these as a sniper however, so I cannot comment on how much different your experience will be as a Sniper(compared to non Milsim games).

Here in Ohio Snipers do not have separate missions (ie, taking out a VIP) so I have never really been that drawn to 'sniping' untill recently. I did however play a game or two as a squad DM. That was alot of fun, but its not that much different than being a normal rifleman.

If you plan on going to a MilSim event, look the part and bring a lot of water(on you, do not leave it at the car).

There are lots of other galleries and You tube videos of your games, Some of them are very very large.

Trenches at LP is a week end game.

so is this one at PL

Big games and Operations include the entire paintball field property as one big field, Teams are divided into tow army's subdivided into usually 4 to 5 platoons which may or may not be sub divided into squads and teams. Each platoon is given a objective or two every hour or so by "higher command" Each platoon is under the command of a platoon leader and his assistant, two or more squad leaders and several "liaisons" which are trusted "STAFF" of c3's forum and long time players. Think of them as combat effective refs curbing idiocy and cheating. Some of my best "sniper" role games are during these big games and operations in direct support of 3rd platoon Blue army. I spot targets and relay that to 3rd platoon's first or second squad which comes up and hammers my targets for me. Picking off enemy (red or grey army's command staff, liaison, medics and squad leaders gives a sneaky type player plenty of targets IF they can slip past all the forces moving around the field. Operations and Big games usually include 150 players or so at Poco Loco and Upwards of 200 or more at Linglestown Paintball much larger field. Some of our games have included attendance of the PA National Guard. LP Big game was more of a recruiters station and show the flag deal, This years BR2 game had a More involved role with some soldiers taking the field with us. I have not made it to any airsoft events like Op Irene yet:
