Cheat and not be seen.


Cheat and not be seen? 
Well its like dipping your foot in a pond and thinking it wont get wet. 

A lot can be said about this topic but I'll just leave the rest of it to you guys to share.

Okey, let me put it this way. Airsoft is like life itself. We as players has a role to play and a mission to accomplish. It is not important how many times "you" are successful, but what is important is how you attain that success. Did you cheat?

If you cheat in airsoft, chances are, you are also a cheat in real life. More often than not, a persons attitude in a game reflects his true attitude in real life. Kung madaya ka sa loob, sigurado madaya ka rin sa labas. Ikaw ba gusto mo rin dinadaya ka?

You can say, "kaya naman ako nandaya kasi madaya rin sila!" if this would be the case, better if you stop playing airsoft kasi dagdag ka lang sa pasaway. Try to be honest, practice honesty always. If you are not honest in life at least you have a chance to start it out in airsoft. Malay mo mag tuluy-tuloy yun, hanggang sa tutoong buhay, di ba maganda? Practice!

Off topic but I want to point this thing out specially to newbies. (yung mga veterans hindi na, kasi matatanda na kayo alam nyo na'to! o dapat alam nyo na to? hehe.)

Leave the "QUOTA NA!" attitude behind. (hit scoring).

This attitude most of the time leads to ego trippings that leads to cheating. It does not show a players game improvement. It does not show anything at all. In airsoft, skill wise, it doesn't prove anything. I use to count hits myself and rate my game with it. Sa totoo lang, masarap sa bibig pero masakit sa tenga ng iba. This I realize when I heard the same words from the lips of a fellow player, a newbie, mas masakit sa tenga coming from vets. Okey, I will open up a secret, the troop I am with know this very well and I am gonna share it with you. If ever you happen to chance upon me in a game and I greeted you, "sir, quota ka na ba?". Mind you, don't take it as a compliment, rather, it was meant to accuse. Read between the lines and you'll know what I mean. Pinakawalan ko ito so many times na, wala lang, yung mga nasabihan ko ngumiti lang. Ngek!

How about this, how about instead of counting your hits in a day's game, why not count how many new friends you make during that day. I think one new friend is a lot better than ten "quota" hits. Think.

I'll borrow what my good friend said, Anthony of Team OZ, to sum this thing up. 

"I use the FUN METER and not a score card.Skill wise, nothing to prove here."

And from comrade Horace, allow me to repeat it again.

"What counts is integrity. Skills are way down the ladder and fat egos are excess luggage."

happy hunting everyone.

She's Back!


After getting ruined by a battery leak due to a lot of carelessness on my part, my four year old Hitec Optic - 6 is back. Many thanks to Anthony Ballesteros of Bullet Hobby (Pasig), who also consults for Hitec RCD Philippines who made it possible in making my tx up and running again. Many offered their help when I posted a thread at RC Philippines regarding my transmitter and I am thankful for that, among them is Bong de Leon Ko (cs BravoKilo) who's blog I am also following. Pretty nice community up there.  

Well, it looks like I am back to flying again.
