    Airsoft at night

    Couple of the other MVT Alumni are meeting up tomorrow night to do some force on force at night.

    You can get a "tracer unit" for the airsoft gas rifles that looks like a suppressor. It take 4 AAA batteries and when used in conjunction with glow in the dark BB's, makes them look like tracer rounds.

    This was our best bet versus using IR lasers which would mean everyone at a minimum needed to have laser protective and ballistic protective lens in their eye pro.

    On the day scenarios I'm going to try to mix in the glow in the dark BB's in with the regular BBs. This should give the random "tracer" effect which will help in distance shots. May potentially try a single mag loaded with tracer BBs during the day for "marking" targets as one would with regular tracers.

    Will post results after the class.

    The new GAS operated airsoft guns offer the best value in something that can be used for force on force tactics.

    At $20. or so for 5,000 shots, you can "break even" on the cost of your airsoft gun the very first bottle of BB's. 5,000 rounds of 7.62x39 would be around $1,000. so if I use a fair amount of BB's in training versus live rounds, this saves some serious bucks.

    Considering we average about 10,000 rounds of rifle ammo and 5-6,000 rounds of pistol ammo fired per year, the savings builds up quick.

    One of the guys got pretty sick so we had to push the night part back.

    The "tracer units" worked well at the house however.

    And we had a great weekend of Force on force team vs. team scenarios.

    Lots of "nuggets" and lots of lessons. Will type something up as soon as I have time.
