Why I choose to do Milsim...well for me it started as a means to bond with my son as he was getting ready to join the AF. I wanted him to get a feel for what he was going to encounter out there and fortunately i hooked up with a lot of former/current Military/Law Enforcement folks that had a passion for Milsim. My son learned a lot and now serves our great country. He's a TRF Operator (SWAT) and loving every moment of it. But during this time I found that it was more than just a sport for me...it was a release, or stress reliever where i can completely disconnect from the real world. I would look forward to getting some trigger time with my fellow teammates and the weekend and train up for big Ops. MILSIM to me is so much more than just playing Airsoft, itâ€™s the competiveness, the preparation that goes into it, the sense of accomplishment, and the camaraderie that you get out of it is just an awesome experience. Being a part of something that's just way bigger then what you expected is exciting. There are Rec players and then there are MILSIM Players -- the difference between them both is...MILSIM is a MIND SET and itâ€™s progressive in nature. Where you are constantly evaluating the your training, your AEGâ€™s performance, and yes your GEAR. The MILSIM Player invests their Money, time and energy into getting ready for their next Op, which can be next week and or 3 months down the road. The MILSIM Player takes to the road in search of the best MILSIM experience thatâ€™s out there. The Rec player buys a gun and some gear then 3 months later he/she moves on to the next Hobby. I can go on and onâ€¦but this is what I choose to do.
