What is airsoft? I’m asked this quite a lot when I tell people I’m going airsofting over the weekend. I normally describe it as similar to paintball, but better, so much better. The truth is, airsoft has quite a long history that spreads over almost 50 years.
Airsoft originated in Japan in the 1970s when a photographer called Ichiro Nagata came up with the idea of making model guns that shot non-lethal projectiles. The model guns also catered to shooting enthusiasts who found themselves unable to own real firearms due to the strict Japanese gun laws that banned private gun ownership from 1958 onwards. Originally referred to as “soft air” weapons, these guns were named for the type of gas they used to propel the projectiles they fired. Whilst airguns used co2, a high pressure gas, “soft air” guns used a Freon-silicone oil mixture. This was later changed to a propane-silicone oil mixture. Originally designed for target shooting, it wasn’t until the early 1990s when Tokyo Marui developed an electronic gearbox design that allowed for sustained fully automatic firing without the need to refill the gun with gas after a few shots.
This week on another breathtaking episode of No Wrong Time to Rock Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog Power Girl” Dykes and Alex “Larfleeze” Orona continue their deep dive into Peacemaker by talking about its fifth episode “Monkey Dory.” While not as slow as “Chode Less Traveled,” the episode still gets to breathe and we get some really good character work. The cops also feature more prominently, especially Detective Song who is really good at her job. A really good episode and an even better discussion.
NOTE: This is the last episode before the show goes on a break through the month of July. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
The party makes their way to a secluded alley deep within Skypoint proper and finds the Zephan safe house. Everything seems fine from the outside, but the party soon discovers there’s more to this place than meets the eye.
This week on another exciting episode of No Wrong Time To Rock Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog Mr. Terrific” Dykes, and Alex “Hawkman” Orona, discuss episode four of Peacemaker, “The Chode Less Traveled.” Directly off the heels of the previous episode, we see Vigilante dealing with losing his toe and coming to grips with his “betrayal.” A fun episode featuring a fun discussion. There’s no wrong time to listen.
Welcome to another exciting episode of No Wrong Time To Rock, the retrospective series from Binge Buddies that goes in hard on Peacemaker and doesn’t let up. This week Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog Red Bee” Dykes, Alex “Mr. Mind” Orona, and Joel “Saint Walker” DeWitte discuss the third episode “Better Goff Dead,” which ends up being quite the ride.
Feeling a bit cramped by Fie’s style, the party formulates their exit from the palace and attempts to get some intel on the city before they go. To do this they enlist the help of a familiar infernal contact.
This week on another exciting episode of “No Wrong Time To Rock,” Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog Bouncin’ Boy” Dykes, Alex “Lagoon Boy” Orona, and Joel “Odd Man” DeWitte talk about Peacemaker’s second episode, entitled “Best Friends, For Never.” While it might not be the best of the series, the episode certainly has its moments and those moments are an absolute blast.
