Airsoft action in the Philippines.
Plenty of airsoft enthusiasts have build associations in the Philippines. Players like to meet in their leisure time. Not seldom they bring their entire family to the air-soft gun ranges or meet at tournaments held all over the country. Now you might think that shooting at each other is a violent sport but in fact it is not, as there are safety rules like in every other sport.
Klaus has attended plenty of those tournaments. Not active shooting like the players, but shooting pictures with his camera. Quite exciting days which we spend together with the airsoft player community.
Mary's brothers Jojo and Allen are real enthusiasts. While in real life just people like you and us, they take airsoft tournaments very serious.
Going into tactical ops as they were real. Rescuing hostages, finding and disarming explosives or capturing the opponents headquarter.
It is amazing to observe their skills and the precision of their actions. Also even while just taking pictures it is a great exercise for brain and body. A real sportive group adventure.
After the tournaments we sit together, having a barbeque with our families. Discussing what just happened, what went wrong and what could be done better next time. It's not really about winning or loosing, it's about playing together and having a great day.
And truly it is much more fun as playing those online 1 person shooter games. Air-soft shooting is real and quite an exercise.
A sport for adults, who like to compete out doors or indoors 1 on 1 or as a group. Nothing more nothing less.
As real the tournament looks like, as real look the weapons. Of course they are marked as airsoft-guns, but it parts have such a realistic look and players take it very serious how they keep their weapons well maintained and they are always looking for to improve their equipment with Zparts.
