December 15 King33 and GZA CQB Sim class
Sat Dec 08, 2012 6:16 pm // 2 comments // Lester
King 33 & Ground Zero Airsoft
King 33 is proud to announce Tactical training with Simunition with GROUND ZERO AIRSOFT USA
Tactical Training Course schedule, pricing and overview:
Simunition/FX has been in use by military and law enforcement since the late 1980â€™s and is now available to the public in the United States. This means you can take your training or game to the highest level possible only with the certified, insured and qualified instructors at King 33.
December 15th from 7-9PM $50 per shooter (inlcudes 15 sim rounds) plus additional ammo expense .58 cents per round.
Agenda: CLASSES ARE CAPPED TO A MAXIMUM OF 12 SHOOTERS and YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN EYE AND GROIN PROTECTION (GOGGLES OR SHOOTING GLASSES).
7PM, admin period, waivers, payment, King 33/Simunition introduction and overview
7:20-8PM moving and shooting training
8-9PM Force on Force Scenarios (These scenarios are something you will be use to in using a team of 2-3 people to gain a strong hold against the opposing team while they attempt to do the same to you)
What you will learn is how to use the Simunition/FX training system, ammunition, weapons conversion kits (Glock & Sig, Stag M4 and Binelli shotgun) and protective equipment.
What you will gain in experience is â€œthe next levelâ€ in your search for entertainment and or training; we guarantee that this type of experience is invaluable aside from the price of the class.
This type of training while fun teaches a lot of lessons of which a few are through a level of pain that is associated with the Simunition marking rounds upon impact on your body, second is that with the marking rounds you get to see where you hit your opponent as well they know where they were hit (no cheating) this is also a take home reminder that you could have performed your tactics to a higher standard to avoid being hit. This system is also used to validate your level of training, the less you get hit the better you are performing your level of skill and the more you hit your opponent proves the same lesson in a higher level of stress than found in â€œgamingâ€.
We look forward to seeing you at Ground Zero Airsoft field.
The next class is scheduled for December 15 at 7pm. The cost is $50.00 per shooter that includes 15 round of Sim Ammo. You may purchase more if you like.
All participants must be prepaid and at least 15 minutes early to the Indoor CQB facility.
You may call the shop to pay by phone, or paypal at EMAIL

Tactical Airsoft’s new Southington Field..
Sun May 06, 2012 2:11 pm // 0 comments // Binky
To sum it up in as few words as possible, diverse and unique. Witt invited me out to check it out and meet John, the owner.
The field is located just behind BJ’s.. Drive around back and you’ll find a cattle gate opened with a road leading back to the property. It’s got both natural and main made borders with a road big enough to drive on going through the property.
The first area is dominated by a huge mound with two access roads leading to the top, a sheer drop off on one side and sand pits on the other. There’s a building in front of that they they’ll eventually have access to, but as of now there’s still items from the previous tenant inside it and it needs to be cleared out and deemed safe for use. Most of the property is surrounded by a river with small ponds and streams dotting the land.
There’s everything from thick woods, to sparse, a field filled with mulch piles that could make some quick and easy fox holes, a hunting stand or two, wide open fields and plenty of deer trails. Field is about 40 acres.
This is RIGHT off exit 32 on 84. Queen street exit. Every fast food place imaginable is within a 5 minute ride in either direction on Rt 6, so lunches are never an issue. BJ’s also has a food court for those with memberships there.
I can see some real fun stuff happening there in the near future. They were just doing walk throughs today and 20+ people were on site playing which is probably a fifth of what the field could support. Action at this place would be near instantaneous as each area abuts the next.
They’re continuing the field up in Mansfield as well, they’re just branching out here. There were plenty of first timers going out and basically stating that they’re hooked after going out there.
In other news, they’ll also be opening up a 35000 sq foot CQB facility in an old steel mill in Plainville as well. The place is like walking through a CoD level, with tons of equipment still in place and 14 or so real offices to do room clearing exercises through. Going to be a fun year!
Advanced Players Series: Starts Saturday
Tue Apr 24, 2012 8:51 am // 1 comment // Tiny
For those that havenâ€™t heard. The inaugural game in the NEW Advanced Player Series is this Saturday at Ground Zero Airsoft at the woodland field starting at 13:00 and ending 19:00.
This is a series thatâ€™s been in the planning stages for a long time and they are starting it up this week. It is geared to the serious more experienced players with focus on strict guidelines, rules, and high expectations for player behavior on the field.
This is gaming for those people that want to take it to the next level. Everything is explained on the GZA forums, check it out. Caution: Your quality of play will determine whether you will be allowed to continue to play that day and be invited to the next game in the series. Hope to see the pros and established teams show up to this.
Fields of Fire – Mystic CT Opening May 2012.
Sat Mar 31, 2012 8:42 am // 3 comments // Binky
You shoreline boys are getting a 50 acre field hosting both Airsoft and Paintball beginning in May. The field will consist of between 8-12 varying fields and while Paintball is obviously going to be the main business focus, it was intended for Airsoft as well from the get go.
There’s plenty of restaurants in the area and hotels as well for those looking to travel as well as Mystic’s other attractions for those that might want to spend a weekend there with their families.

AN ACT CONCERNING LOOK-A-LIKE FIREARMS.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:
Section 1. (NEW) (Effective October 1, 2012) (a) As used in this section, “look-a-like firearm” means any imitation firearm, simulated firearm, replica of a firearm or other device which substantially duplicates or is so similar in coloration and overall appearance to an existing firearm as to lead a reasonable person to perceive that the device is a firearm.
(b) No person shall alter, change, deface, remove, paint, emboss or in any other manner obliterate any coloration or markings that are required by any applicable state or federal law or regulation for any look-a-like firearm, in a manner that makes the look-a-like firearm look more like a firearm. Any person who violates any provision of this subsection shall have committed an infraction. This subsection shall not apply to the use of look-a-like firearms in theatrical productions including, but not limited to, motion pictures and television and stage productions.
(c) No person shall possess any look-a-like firearm, paintball gun, pellet-firing air gun or BB. gun in or on, or within one thousand five hundred feet of, the real property comprising a public or private elementary or secondary school. Any person who violates any provision of this subsection shall be fined not more than five hundred dollars or imprisoned not more than three months or both.
(d) The provisions of this section shall not apply to any look-a-like firearm, paintball gun, pellet-firing air gun or BB. gun used by the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection, police departments, the Department of Correction or the military or naval forces of this state or of the United States in the discharge of their official duties.
Statement of Purpose:
To make it an infraction for any person to deface the markings on any look-a-like firearm and to ban the possession of look-a-like firearms, paintball guns, pellet-firing air guns, and BB. guns within one thousand five hundred feet of, the real
This is a ridiculous overreach of our state legislature to ban air guns and replicas from private homes and properties all over Connecticut. 1500 feet is a huge radius around the ‘real property’ of a public school. It exceeds even the Federal law on carrying real firearms without a permit around schools.
This needs to be fought aggressively.
There is public hearing on March 1st, 2012.
Here is how to testify:
We should all also be writing our legislators to tell them how distasteful and restrictive this is.
Everyone needs to get testimony submitted on this. Everyone needs to contact their representatives.
This is a huge overreach and needs to receive the scrutiny and outcry it is demanding.
Public hearing information:
*SELECT COMMITTEE ON CHILDREN

Airsoft CT is once again taking paid Sponsers
Mon Nov 21, 2011 10:15 pm // 0 comments // Binky
Airsoft Store and Business owners,
I’ve decided to once again open this site to direct paid advertising of local businesses with a top tier banner ad placed right at the top of the page next to our logo. This will be on a rotational basis per page refresh and will also be on our main site page. We get approximately 40,000-70,000 page highly targeted views here per month, looking for your services, wares, and fields. We boast approximately 2000 users here, along with several guest views a day. This has, in the past, had a direct benefit to advertisers on the site, and I’ve watched business drop off sharply since it was stopped for some of them. This is despite offering free advertising in the various forums for CT based businesses. It’s because of this that I’ve opted to begin offering banners and personalized business forum sections to our sponsors once again.
That said, I will continue to offer free advertising in the various forums. My goal here is to promote our local businesses and those who offer safe, legal and insured places to play airsoft. The free advertising via posts is a wonderful way to keep the community energized and engaged and I encourage it as well. Unfortunately, the free advertising is only as good as the amount of posts made by your business. No posts, no customer awareness. For those not taking advantage of this, you can either do that yourselves, pay an employee to do it when business is slow, or pay us to host a banner ad that definitely gets noticed.
Please contact me with any questions regarding this. Advertising packages are $180 every six months. That should be plenty of time to measure the increase in business.

Coworker mentioned there was an article in the paper on Airsoft in today’s Hartford Courant.
Article is two pages and covers a lot of different perspectives, stores, and fields. Well written in my opinion!
