Because of our recent NE game cancellation Insterburger and I have decided to pursue our other options for a north east US WW2 airsoft venue. So I wanted to start here on the forum and ask the other players here in the NE, which includes Maine to Pennsylvania, if they have a local modern airsoft venue near them that is suitable for ww2 and what the contact info is? We are hoping to find something central as to draw back in as many of the old players from the NE as possible. Central being Connecticut, Massachusetts, or Rhode Island. We already of course know GZA, but want to seek an alternative as the cost for using that field is basically prohibitive with our current numbers. So let us know if you can think of any fields. It can even be one that has closed down, the owners may still let it be used or rented.
Its north of the City a bit, but easier to get to for the guys who live out more. Its also where Evike hosts its yearly OP Bad Blood event.

I may head up to the Catskills early next week, if I do I may try to scope this place out in person and try to chat with the owner. Seems very paintball-specific, but you never know. And frankly I like the idea of independent referees. Could help avoid people not calling hits.
I've been sort of burnt out with airsoft in general for the couple years, but if there were another WWII game in CT or relatively close to where I live I will try to make it. It's been like three years since I've been to a WWII game lol. I could get at least one of my old friends to come with me.
Just out of curiosity, about how many players would you say would be needed for a game at GZA? And are there any other good CT fields that any of us have used since? I only know of paintball fields myself, and none of the ones I know would be suitable for WWII airsoft (because basically everything is covered in paint).

Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
