formal intro....

Hello

I'm fairly new to the airsoft community and have been lurking AO for several months. I have met a several of you at Red Dragon and Valley Creek events this year. (the 40yo Asian guy, usually with another Asian guy)

What started as telling my nephews they were crazy for shooting "bb's" at each other, has now turned into my new obsession. Airsoft Arms and Rocket have been patient with my questions and "noobieness".

I've been involved w/ RC cars and mountain bike racing in the past. I work as a pain management physician to support my AEG and loadout funds (as well as take care of the wife and 2 kids)

I was initially reluctant to join what appeared to be a younger generation sport, but I've since met several other "old guys".

Looking forward to meeting more of you guys.

See you on the field!

Cliff

PS-Don't worry, I know how to use google and the search key

Hey Doc ... I was the WWII guy at Red Dragon a few weeks ago, you and the other guy impressed me as two squared away fellows ... been working on my modern milsim impression to better fit in and be less of a target ... hope to see you again soon!

Hey Spine Doc, welcome to AO!

It's always refreshing to see another 40-ish year old get hooked on Airsoft. There's quite a few of us on these boards. PM me if you have any questions.

Mike was completely impressed and psyched about his first airsoft milsim event. I told him about AO and I'm sure you'll be seeing him at future events.

Wait until you guys get out to a REAL milsim event, I think you will like it even more. The milsim open plays are just a light introduction.

Welcome! I'm going to talk shop with you about you work, at some point... networking is a plus for the older medical student. I hope to meet you in the future (unless, by some odd chance, I already have and didn't know it, in which case, until we meet again!).

Good to hear... glad he had fun too... As you can tell from this thread there are probably more "old guys" than you thought. It is definitely a sport/hobby that is addictive for all ages.

Welcome to AO. I was 40 when I started playing also, I'm now 42. I look forward to meeting you on the field, if I haven't already. I used to race mountain bikes quite a bit too, we may have even met then.
