Howdy folks!

Post by Rainman on May 1st 2015, 18:39

Hi everyone,

It was great to meet some of you at last week's practice, and I look forward to meeting the rest soon.

As a quick background, I've played airsoft off and on since about 2001-- mostly casual backyard games, but also a stint with my college team. I moved to Colorado from Georgia just over a year ago, and I work for Thule as a product designer. I'm a big outdoors guy, which is the main reason I wanted to come to Colorado. I'm into mountain biking, snowboarding, camping, shooting... all the good stuff. I'm an eagle scout-- I'm big on self sufficiency and leadership. This is a big reason I'm drawn to the milsim side of airsoft. That, and I like gear and guns! 

I recently felt the urge to get back into a team sport and I decided to ask google if there were any airsoft teams in the area, and voila. Here I am! I'm looking forward to meeting all of you and (if i make the team) learning a lot and having some great times!

Best,
-Daniel (call-sign TBD... this is a big decision)

Hey Guys,

I'm Kyle McElroy, I met a few of you last Sunday. I'm looking forward to learning some tactics and teamwork with you gentleman. I don't have a lot of airsoft experience, just some backyard games back in the day. But I'm ready and eager to learn, hopefully I will meet the rest of the crew at the next practice. I'm currently a student at CU Boulder studying Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.

Welcome to the community.  There are places around to play, however, the number of them has been unfortunately shrinking. 

If you're looking for some relaxed pickup game type activities, here are some local fields are:
American Paintball Collesium. (yes they do airsoft). Web: http://www.americanpaintballcoliseum.com/denver-colorado-airsoft-field

Flat Acres Farm, Web: https://www.foxairsoft.com/flat-acres-farm-outdoor-airsoft-field/

Another place to watch for (if it ever reopens) is Kiowa Creek. 

If you're looking to get more involved in the milsim aspect of the sport and are looking for a local team, I am the team leader of Brigade Milsim, based out of the Boulder area.  I will post a couple of videos below to give you an idea of who we are and what we do.  Here is a link to read more and apply if interested: http://apply.brigademilsim.com

You can also see more about the team on Facebook and Instagram @brigademilsim

Introduction

Post by popo_mack on April 22nd 2017, 02:00

Hey Guys,

My name is Chris Parsons and I am a new applicant to the team.

A small overview of who I am:

Originally from Philly, I moved to FoCo with my girlfriend straight out of college for an inpatient RN position at PVH about 2 years ago.
I was an avid mountain biker until I sold my bike to move out here and have yet to get another bike. 
Over the years I have played several dozen games of airsoft, mostly small pickup games in the back yard with friends and younger brothers. I mostly played as a mid-close combat AEG and as a sniper. 

Originally, I wanted to play with a casual group but then I came across the term "Milsim" and I've been hooked on the idea (40-hour games sound sick).

Unfortunately I have literally zero gear so I don't know how long it will be until I become as active as I'd like to be but I am so excited to have found this team!  

I am currently working on getting out of my position in the hospital to work full time on my business. In a nut shell, I help realtors get more clients and help design and implement a process to automate the cash going into their pocket. Once that gets going and I'm making more money I fully intend to get geared up.

You can bet I'll be there on the 30th and I'm looking forward to meeting the team!

Chris, 

Welcome to the forum and the community.  My name is also Chris (there's a few of us here) and I am the team leader for Brigade Milsim.  

Our team, while we definitely have a good time and know when a relaxed atmosphere is appropriate, is more focused on the national milsim operations.  We train together all year in preparation for attending these.  The long events can be a lot of fun if you do them right.  You're applying to the team just as we are in the final stages of preparation for one, so you'll get to see first hand what the level of preparation that goes into it as the team prepares to head out in May.  

As for gear, don't worry about that on the 30th, we'll have some equipment that you can borrow to get you through the day.  Down the road if everything works out acquiring gear will become cheaper as our we have a dealer purchasing account available to our team members to get equipment at dealer cost. This saves the team several thousand dollars year. 

Please keep an eye on the team forum.  As an applicant you should now have some hot-links on the left side of your screen when you view the forum on a PC.  We do a lot of planning and coordination here.  If you have questions along the way, please ask.  Questions are good.  

I'll go into more about the team with you on Sunday the 30th. In the mean time, here are a couple videos, one from a team training back in November, and another from the most recent milsim op we attended. 

Training: 


Operation Copperhead 2.5

Hello, my name is Cord and I wanted to apply to this Milsim team. I work out in North Dakota, 2 weeks on, 1 week off for a well servicing company so I'm hoping things line up for me to participate in the training's and the ops. I currently live in Greeley with my girlfriend when I come back to Co. 

I have been playing airsoft for about two years, mostly skirmish games with friends at Fox Airsoft in Parker, Co..DMZ down in Colorado Springs, Go Airheads in Erie and both fields owned by the American Paintball Coliseum (APC). I've done one 'Op' The Battle of Chernobyl at APC, and I liked going up against semi-organized squads. 

I'm looking to get new weapons but currently I run a Lancer Tactical MMC for field that I want to mod into a DMR, and an Elite Force m4 for cqb. I have two side arms; CZ P-09 and Walther PPQ modded for full auto. 

I would love to be apart of a squad that plays nationally, my only problem would be my work schedule. I'm off for a week long and I could get time off for an op if I give notice. Hopefully everything works out.
Stay Frosty gents! ;-)

Cord,

Welcome to the forum.  

Typically our team trains twice per month on the second and last Sunday's, however, we adjust as needed such as around holidays or events.  I don't know if that would work for your schedule or not.

The team is attending two ops this year, AMS Broken Home (Memorial Day weekend) and AMS Copperhead 3 (Labor Day weekend).

Our training schedule is set quarterly with at least 6 weeks of notice.  

Right now we are accepting applications for reserve positions, which could turn into full team member spots in the fall.  We are winding down this seasons training cycle and start the new cycle in the fall.  In the interim applicants can attend team trainings with the understanding that they are working toward a future team member position.

If you have any questions you can contact me or our team account; team@brigademilsim.com

--Chris

Hi everyone,

My name's Kang, I've been in Boulder for about seven years, by way of New York, Connecticut, Texas (where I grew up), Iowa, and South Korea.  Very happy to see a mil-sim group and have fond memories of a few airsoft games in college.

I was briefly a team captain of the Yale pistolry and riflery team, and have been shooting since I was three or four with my grandfather (a vet of two wars).  I attended my first national op (Operation Pine Plains) about ten years ago, and had a great time.  

I'm excited to see training still ongoing (Chris filled me in on the schedule a little bit, hopefully my work schedule doesn't preclude me from participating Smile), and I look forward to the interview!
