A few years ago the five AirsoftC3 founders were introduced to airsoft... and quickly became totally addicted! We formed a team and ran out to buy guns and gear with no idea what we should be getting or why. After a difficult search we found a local airsoft field and got in a game. We clearly had a lot to learn because our guns didn’t work as expected, our batteries died, our goggles fogged, and our feet were blistered... but when the day was done we had found a new passion.
From there we played as often as we could. We met new teams and players and had a great time sling’n plastic at each other. We started looking for new places to play and new teams to compete with, but we were surprised at how difficult it was. This became a real problem when our guns started having issues and we couldn’t find any airsoft shops to help us fix them.
We figured something had to exist to help us find what we were looking for and we just had to dig for them... so we did. We dug around the web, but none of the existing tools met our needs.
We decided to solve the problem ourselves. We began by spending several months doing research... talking with players, teams, field owners, shop owners and asking them what they thought the sport needed. Taking all this input, along with all of our own ideas, we created a roadmap for building a dedicated, full featured social network for Airsoft.
We first set out to solve the “discovery” issue. Players have constant trouble finding teams, fields to play on and shops to bring their gear. It's a process we knew we had to make better... and we did. AirsoftC3 is now arguably one of the best Airsoft resource finders available today. From there we sought out and listed a few of the big online retailers that we felt gave back to the Airsoft community and met our strict guidelines.
Fast forward to present day, and our newest release adds a score of new features. Advocates and Organizers have been added along with Teams, Fields, Shops and their pages have been upgraded with even more information. Individual players can create accounts, find and join local teams through a new dashboard. Finally, we have created a full featured event system, one that allows you to find not only a place to play the specific event as well.
While we have not yet reached our ultimate goal, we do feel we have created something special for the Airsoft community. Let us know what you think, and keep shoot’n everyone,
