    Posted: 06 November 2006 at 7:40pm
Just got the e-mailed approval from the Nebraska National Guard that we can use the Mead Training area (3000 acres) for a large airsoft event in the spring. My re-enactment groups already use the site.

The site was an old ordanance plant during WW2, as well as a deactivated Titan/NIKE site from the later 60's.

We have access to all the site, the 4 silos, the two factory buildings, the underground tunnels connecting the silos, the bunkers, trenches, outbuildings etc. Should be an absolute blast.

There will be safety constraints such as helmets in the buildings, boots on site, safety trained personnel to clear weapons, standard training area SOP's etc.

Will draw up a urban war scenario over winter and see where we go. Looking at an initial 1 day operation, later in year maybe an overnight 24 hour saturation event.

Anyone in area interested let me know, we can arrange for "rentals" of mid AEG's.





Safety rules and requirements: as of 10Nov06

Following are personal equipment requirements:

Full seal paintball style goggles or proffesional grade balistic goggles (no shooting glasses or wallyworld styled minigoggles) Googles will go on once cleared of range control/parking area and will remain on till return to parking area. NO removal of goggles, bring appropiate cleaning/defogging rags and fluid and start practicing flip up, head down quick wipe method of cleaning/de-fogging.

Any NVS (night vision) will be binocular and will have same rules as goggles. You put them on in parking area and remove upon return to parking area. Malfunction of NVS will be verified and a total field safety hold will be called till regular goggles are put on.

Long pants and shirt- NO short sleeves

Full ankle boots, no low cut below ankle foot wear allowed on site.

Helmet required for entry into buildings, reg mil issue or any abs/sim plastic simulation with chinstrap. (a lot of protrusions in buildings head injury an issue) any individuals in buildings without helmet will be imediately escorted off property, NO warnings.

Picture ID in around the neck ID holder, one game ID one div license or recognized form of picture ID can be stuffed into shirt (age and participant verifacation. Must be shown to any MP or uniformed military personnel on demand.

Weapon Requirements:

400fps limit....initially (issues with safety and NG unfamiliar with Airsoft, probably can get it raised for DSR's after initial event)

.20/.23/.25gr white BB's only, no black, colored or tracers, they may insist on biodegradeable waiting on thier call on that.

20 foot day 30 foot nigh Safety range will be inforced, there will be NG/RES "umpires/observers" on site and immediate removal from site on violation.

Barrel sock worn at all times that gun is NOT in play, if you are not live and in the game, you will barrel sock muzzle.

Magazines removed if not live, weapons on safe, weapons carried muzzle down.

A safety range will be established for test firing all weapons. NO discharging of weapons loaded or unloaded in parking or camping areas.

Upon end of game all weapons will be cleared, magazines out, fired three times to clear hop-ups, barrel sock on, batterys removed, gas discharged, then cleared to leave site. (standard range control safety for real firearms modified for our sport.)



Waiver: A waiver is being drawn up by NG legal based on the GOAA waiver to include the NG and site. Will advise.

18 or older to play verified by picture ID

Will begin preregistration Jan 3rd, once training area NG/Res training dates are locked in and we can fit into schedule.

For those interested in coming a few things.

Pricing will be minimal, just to cover base expenses,
we will have recharging available on site, BB's for sale and hopefully some vendors. Just starting initial planning phase.

On a safety note, full seal goggles will be required (no shooting glasses) a military styled helmet (real or good plastic imatation) if you plan on entering buildings, supportive boots.

There will be a uniform requirement for the sides airsoft does not use the armtape method. Green for one side, desert/tan for other.

We will be on a military reservation so plan accordingly.

That does sound like a good time, unfortunatly my best airsoft gun is an electric pistol we're most people will have the co2 powered ones that blow heads off. If I went I'd go buy a co2 powered colt 1911 replica but a i don't think they make those and b I so don't have the money

 

For after all what's man in nature? A central point in between nothing & all, infinitely far from understanding either.

If anyone from out of state decides to show up:

I know it's spelled Norfolk, but it's pronounced nor-fork.  Don't ask me why.  But if you go to Norfolk, and pronounce it wrong, you might get yourself shot.

And Kearney.  Think car + knee.  Not keer-knee.  People from Minnesota in particular seem to have a problem with that one.

Also, if you're driving through Western Nebraska, or through South Omaha, hold your breath.

Just go to Canfield's.  They have a fairly large stock of military surplus, and their prices are fairly reasonable.  Otherwise, try to find some deals online.

I'll definitely keep an eye on the details. Airsoft would be new to me, but Nebraska isn't that far of a trip.
