Hi people

Just a quick introduction. My name is Jon and I live in the UK. I have spent the last 22 years in the military and now teach within the Army Cadet Force (trying to pass on some of this knowledge :) )

Here's me

I'm from Norwich and at the moment don't play (just teach cam and concealment to cadets). I am looking at a group just north of Norwich though :)

Glad to be here btw
I'm based at Chepstow and curently play for a team by the name of Los Lobos based in Bristol. We are very nomadic and play all over the country from Portland Bill (The Rock) and Combat South, all the way up to Free Fire Zone and Urban Assault in Peterborough. I don't believe we have ever ventured in the Norwich direction yet, but you'll know when we do, a bunch of scrumpy drinkin, west country oo ar's will be hard to miss ;)

Wow you look realy young for your age


Welcome to the boards.... And when you wise up you can move to a real country..... well that would have been the US a while ago, but I will get back to you on a good country to move to when I find out


Love the pics ... looks like a fun place to play.

We all just need to pool our money together and buy a little country and use it for nothing but airsoft..

I have no idea what you just said.
Sorry chap, but we don't all talk like Hugh Grant, infact some of us from the more extreme parts of the country should come with sub titles ;)

Its amazing what cam cream can do for people
unfortunately my knees and ankles realise they are 38 years old and constantly remind me

I totally agree about buying a little Country just for airsoft ;) May be we could show all the other countries how to chill out a bit and not take things so seriously

I noticed you said you were in the military for 22 years.. But you're 38 years old? I had no idea you could serve as early as 16. That's pretty cool stuff. But anyways, welcome aboard. Just make sure you browse through our rules and regulations on how things work here, and I don't see any problems coming through. Once again welcome aboard and enjoy your stay on Airsoft Sniper.

Thanks for the welcome Mosin. I have now read through the rules and regs and will try not to break any of them. If I do, please shout and I'll try to recitfy the problem :)

I joined the British Army back in 1986 as a Junior Leader, badged to the 2RTR. After leaving the regs I joined the Territorial Army in 1993 and have served with them ever since. Although I now teach teenage army cadets as my knees are knackered. This way I get to kep my hand in, whilst also putting a little back into the military.

Heres a little pic of me and some of the guys from my artillery battery on the firing range in Hythe, UK (with a nice sample of souvenir weapons aquired by the range)



Anyways, its good to be here and I hope I get to get to know you all a lt better. Once again thanks for the warm welcome

I did some training there. And Lydd. Mostly Lydd.
Cool. We only ever got to go to Hythe the once as most of our APWT's were done at Thetford. Never got to go to Lydd though :(

What Regt did you serve with? I was with 202 Battery 106 RA(V) at the time of the photo, whilst we were in our transition period between FH70 and LML.

See now that's funny
and not to far from the truth ;) fact is if I was to type how I talk you'd probably only understand 1 word in 5
and even typing doesn't carry over the full extent of the OO, I and AR in the accent ;)

See thats the odd thing down here, it realy does depend on how your parents speak as to what accent you end up with ??? Because we live right on the boarder of Wales, the West Country and the Forest of Dean there is a vast range of different accents in a really small area. I have a broad Forest accent, which most think is a West country accent as they sound quite similar, until you stand me and my Bristol team mates together, it then becomes quite obvious that they arn't, but my mate, who I have known since I was 11 speaks with a welsh accent, and he was brought up 5 miles away from me :-/ but then when we were working together in deepest darkest Wales, they all thought he came from Bristol, which is odd as he very obviously has a Welsh accent, so god only knows where they thought I came from
