The Crossroads of the Aether
What? Use spell check please it literally hurts my eyes to try and decipher what you are trying to say.
Secondly, Tampa has a massive Steampunk community. But I sincerely doubt any want to ruin their outfits (We wear Snazzy clothes not combat fatigues) running around doing milsim.
WW2 is generally not the accepted time period for Steampunk. WW1 is usually the cut off point.
I'm all the way in Ohio but good luck getting a team together. Airsoft can be so much fun!
Hello, Mr. DeGroat,
Your venture sounds like quite a bit of fun. I am quite far away from your location, unfortunately for me, so I would not be able to sign up with your unit. Have you considered looking for recruits in local airsoft forums? I am curious as to what type of modifications you have done to your uniforms to Steampunk them. I wore a Swedish post WW I wool overcoat the last time I skirmished and I had a good time wearing a vintage garment in the field.
I'd like to put a Steampunk airsoft team together, myself. But instead of military, I can imagine a team of nonmilitary players with a variety of outfits, lever-action rifles, shotguns, revolvers and Mauser automatics - the Serenity crew circa 1896, if you will.
Good luck and have fun.
I'd meant to ask you last week- where are you purchasing your lever-action airsoft replica? I've been trying to find one for myself. Perhaps I've been looking in the wrong places.
Thank you, Mr. DeGroat.
In the summer, I often attend a Firefly airsoft LARP. Ergo, I'll be keeping an eye out for one of those myself. Oh... "eye out." ...poor choice of words, perhaps.

C96 Mauser pistols and carbines, P08 Lugers, 1911 Colt .45 automatics, sawed-off double barrel shotguns, pump-type shotguns, bolt-action KAR98 Mauser or VSR-10 rifles, revolvers, and single shot grenade/shower launchers are going to be your period weapons.Calf high boots, ankle boots with puttees, riding breeches, twill shirts, bush jackets, Brodie, German, or pith helmets would be your outfits. There are lots of Swiss, Swedish, or E.German uniforms for for sale online that look a bit WWI-ish. The same thing with pistol belts, holsters, canteens, ammo pouches, and suspenders.
If you go to the Oklahoma or national airsoft sites, I'm Doc Dodge there. I've been competing in airsoft 6+ years.
