Interest in taking an airsoft "class"?
« on: January 10, 2016, 03:33:43 PM »
Hello all, So Go Airsoft and I have been working on something different to bring to the Springfield Airsoft community. What we are wanting is input from everyone on whether or not there is any interest. Our current idea is to offer an airsoft "class" which will cover different subjects that every airsofter should be knowledgeable on such as:

*Basic Maintenance for AEG and GBB
*Basic Malfunction Diagnosis/Solutions for AEG and GBB
*How an airsoft gun works
*How to tune a hop-up
*How to accessorize your gun
*How to set up your gear
*(Possibly) Basic Team Tactics
*And more

As of right now, we are looking at a $10 fee for the class, and will ask that you bring 1 AEG and 1 GBB (if you have one). If you have any ideas, feel free to pitch them down below, just keep in mind that this class will be designed for those who wish to gain a better understanding of their airsoft equipment in a basic format and relaxed environment. So no, I will not be teaching more complicated subjects (like dwell time or AOE). Let us know what you guys think!

Mickey,

I'd be interested in a technical skills class, like you describe.  Tactics and gear set up could be other classes but I believe they should be kept separate from the technical class.

Great idea!

It will come down to what we have more of a demand for; whether it be a more technical class that will focus on internals, or a basic beginner class that would be very survey level and cover more topics. I'm fine with doing either

Mickey,

             I totally would be willing to go to a class for this. Just sucks I will never be able to attend unless you do a webcast like skype or webex meeting display.

The first will focus on the tech part of it. I will be posting soon how it will be done and when.

Just a reminder that So Go Airsoft will be offering an Airsoft "101 tech class" this Friday January 29th at 6:00pm for $10. This will cover Basic Maintenance, show you how airsoft guns function and actually go over the workings to know what to look for.  if you have your own guns you can bring them. But remember this is just basic 101 class.

Hope to see you out there.
