PostSubject: New to airsoft and in Northern Illinois :) !!!   Sat May 30, 2009 7:28 pm

Hi Everyone,

I would really like to get into this sport. I'm in McHenry, IL. and we don't seem to have any groups out here.
I'm in my early 40's , in good shape and would like to meet up with a variety of ages that would like to form a team. (Young is good but older also has wisdom and experience)
Please let me know if your in this area and are currently active and need players or are interested in forming a group.

Thanks

Dogbyte

I'm a native Illinois resident(hailed from Springfield before I moved)! I"m not familiar with McHenry though... You should look into the Chicago area for regular games. I don't know about anything south of that area(if there is something, they aren't that publicized).

Welcome aboard!

Thanks Sticks,
I'm new so I really don't know where to go and also need advice on AEG's.
I used to be on a shooting leauge when I was a kid so Sniper is also a option.
I'll look into it and any advise is welcome.

Welcome aboard mate. Illinois is the homeland for me. Family grew up in the outskirts Knottsville on a large plot of farm. Too bad im stuck out here in bloody California rather than Ol Lincoln's place. This is a very informed community of airsofters and hobbyists that you now have at your disposal. Use us and you will get the answers and opinions you need. Check out the 'Which Gun' section for any answers you need for buying an AEG. Search by price, style, and rating on Airsoftgi.com, the most trusted name in airsoft wargamers. Welcome and good luck from the west coast.

Thanks everyone! I hope to hook up with a team in the near future. Any suggestions on a M4 or M16 AEG.
P.S. I don't want to spend more than I did on my car. Smile

That would be a question for the "Which Gun" section. You'll get more feedback there Smile

Welcome to the Forum Dogbyte,

If you get infected with the AirSoft Virus, your Guns are going to cost more than your car !!

Heck, I sold one of my cars to support the Sickness !!!

Again welcome to the Madness, and glad to see another `` Seasoned person joining the ranks of AirSoft.
