The world-famous MilSim Junkie was off chasing waterfalls or something, so the I decided to step in and grab some airsoft war footage while I was hanging out at CQB City up in Stockton, California a couple weeks ago.  However, all respect must be given to the MSJ, because putting together a quality airsoft war video is not as easy as he makes it seem.  There is really no substitute for his gameplay capturing wizardry.  

Due to a series of unfortunate injuries, including a recurring shoulder dislocation problem stemming from an outing last summer while the MilSim Junkie was visiting me in Southern California, I have been limited to working behind the camera while my buddies, Dave, Todd & Luke got to tear it up on the field. Dave was using his Elite Force HK416 CQB AEG with a giant Surefire tac light while my brother, Todd, ran around The City with my Elite Force HK417, which has been downgraded for CQB use. Luke, on the other hand, went with his self-built, fully customized Magpul stubby CQB destoyer with a Speed Trigger and a Gen 2 ASCU MOSFET trigger unit.

If you're in the market for a top-of-the-line Airsoft AEG, you really need to look no further than the Elite Force HK416 or HK417.  If you've already got either of those, but are in need of extra mags, I have your solution:
Extra mags for the Elite Force HK416 AEG
Extra mags for the Elite Force HK417 AEG - 100-rd Mid-Cap
Extra mags for the Elite Force HK417 AEG - 500-rd High-Cap

Here is the video, I do sincerely hope that it brings you joy and harmonious Airsoft love.

As some of you may know, Pyramyd Air has been doing a Big Shot of the Week contest on both of their Facebook pages for quite some time now. However, we decided that we're gonna change it up a little bit and go with a Big Shot of the MONTH instead. We've increased the gift card amount from $50 to $100, and your photo will be featured in our Cover Photo for the whole month, instead of just for a week. All the same rules for posting the photos apply.

Check out the following link to the contest on our Facebook page:

Today, I'd like to highlight an organization within the Airsoft industry which I think is going to do very good things for our community.  American MilSim.  They are a team of dudes from the Dirty South who have been, and will likely continue, putting on some incredible MilSim events in various parts of the Southeastern quadrant of the United States of America.  Their prior events have included fantastic AOs like Ft. Hood's MOUT site(s) & the Government Training Institute, helicopters, tanks crushing cars, sweet pyro, busting doors with battering rams, Andy Green wearing pants, busting doors with pyro, Direct Action Missions which are fairly elaborate little mini missions woven within the fabric of the overall OP, more pyro, explosions, Andy Green wearing goggles, & other cool stuff.

They've got several sweet events already in the works for 2013, among them being OP: Broken Home II, OP: Faded Giant, something called "End State" and OP: Reindeer Games.  If they keep it to just those four events, it will still be a fantastic year for anyone fortunate enough to attend.  They may add even more events to the calendar at a later time, but who knows for sure?

I've taken the liberty of including some pretty sweet videos relating to American Milsim and their instructional arm, MilSim Mechanix, which I will go more into detail about at a later date.

You may view these videos after the jump...

Ok, so today I thought I would share some more Elite Force HK417 photos with you and also provide you with a few facts about the real steel version which I think/hope (mostly hope) you may find interesting.

You can purchase this rifle at Pyramyd Air.  Here is a link: Elite Force HK417 by VFC

Today's blog has been prepared, once again, by my good friend over at the Airsoft Report, Dave Bakholdin.  Dave, being a father of two young cherubs himself, knows all too well what it's like to have a wild toddler and a newborn to deal with all at once in the house, so he didn't hesitate to help me out on this one.  Dave is the kind of friend that makes you feel very lucky to have a friend like Dave (that made sense, right?).  If you missed Dave's last write-up featuring the Elite Force HK416 CQB Rifle, you can click the following link:

But on with the Elite Force HK417D show (after the jump, of course)...

Good day, to you, my faithful readers.  Have I told you lately that I love you?  I don't mean to make you feel all weird, but it's true.  I love you.  

Where would I be without you?  (probably face down in a gutter and/or doing tax returns for people with a lot more money than me, which is depressing as all hell).  

Anyway, in honor of Labor Day and the fact that I was concerned you might need something to read or just look at, I have decided to do work (a little).  

Here is some H&K VFC HK417 Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR) gun porn for you on your holiday.  This is, of course, one of Elite Force's latest & greatest works of art. 

Since the question has already been asked, that is a Leapers UTG 6-24x56mm scope mounted atop my glorious rifle.

I will also add that this is far from a finished project.  I have bigger plans for my 417 than just slapping a giant scope and sizable mock suppressor on there.  But it's what I've got for now.  Enjoy!

I finally got to sit down with my own brother, The Muffin Man, for a little one-to-one, round table discussion about who he is, how he rolls and there is even some unexpected and embarrassing remarks in there which I was not prepared to address.  He never misses a chance to throw me under the bus (bless his heart).

In addition to the plethora of video I captured while at the 2012 U.S. Airsoft Expo, I snapped a couple photographs as well.  Since it took forever and a day to process all of them cuz my computer is slow, I'm not going to spend much time writing.  A blessing, I'm sure, to those of you who only come here to look at the pretty pictures and then bounce without giving me a hug or even saying goodbye.  You just use me as your Airsoft photo booty call and then leave.  Real nice.
