RLBadKarma Posted July 24, 2014 Share Posted July 24, 2014 With a tiny amount of Googling, you can see that Action Airgun/Airsoft is massively HUGE overseas. Yes, I know access to Real Steel is difficult, if not illegal, in a lot of these countries. But why can't we have organized Airsoft/Airgun matches here in the US? There are well over 100,00 Airsoft shooters here in the US. Read on. Per IPSC regulations, they only allow 1 representative organization per country. The organization for the US is the USPSA. Currently, the USPSA refuses to recognize or support/promote any form of Action Airgun/Airsoft. I have been in email contact with USPSA and was told this. I have contacted IPSC with a plea for a rule change to allow another organization to handle an Airsoft community here in the US. My question is this: If an Airsoft division of the USPSA did NOT interfere with Real Steel matches, (meaning they would not be held at the same ranges on the same days), do you think the USPSA should support organized sanctioned Airsoft competition here in the US? This is not a discussion on "You should just get a .45 and go shoot" kind of question. For what ever reason, maybe someone just chooses to shoot an Airsoft pistol and/or rifle. Please let me know what you think. Lee Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
