We haven’t posted up since the last SHOT Show update because Thumpy’s 2.0 move is UNDERWAY! Working on a bigger, badder 3-D House of Airsoft experience….coming soon. And we PROMISE, gettin’ through stacks and stacks of vintage wax from the SHOT Show 2011…more videos and surprised OTW this weekend! THUMPY…OVER!
He’s a friend, a Tarheel, and one of the most-solid representatives for Airsoft at the SHOT Show and throughout the shooting sports industry….allow us to present our very best-est buddy, Mr. “I’m turning 50 in Vegas, so Y’all come to my party at Gilley’s and buy me a beer, OK?”… TIM “TC” Ellwood..the legend behind the “No Airsoft for Old Men” blog….
We’ll have MORE of Tim this weekend, with a scary story you WON’T want to miss…and a bunch more videos still to come from SHOT Show 2011….BTW, this was the 25th SHOT Show that Tim has attended…lucky Bas%@$!….Hahaah!
We’ll be running “shotgun” for Tim again at the North Atlantic Airsoft Expo 2011 in MARCH, so stay tuned for MORE ACTION!
A HUGE 13 Minute-Plus video from the EVIKE.COM (BTW, that’s OFFICIALLY pronounced “Ee-VICK, not Ee-VIKE) shot late in the week at SHOT Show, with some of the details from CYBERGUN, WE’s James Chan, ICS, our new Airsoft HERO Brian from ECHO 1 USA, G&G and ANOTHER look…like we need to drool any more…over at the KWA USA Booth, this time with the little seen but very friendly JIM…eh, Allen must have lost his voice by this point anyway!
THANKS to the EVIKE Gang…and Thumpy is fighting Compy troubles here at home now, but hopes to push out our visit with REAL SWORD in the next update! THUMPS….OVER
This is a SOLID INTERVIEW by our buddy TIM from Airsoft G.I. TV with one of the Product Rep guys from CYBERGUN…and gives you an overview of what THUMPY will be telling you about, from OUR meeting a day earlier with the corporate owners…all the way up to Monsieur Jerome Marsac HIMSELF!

The place too busy for mere mortals…and we LIKE THAT!
One of the busiest booths at this year’s SHOT Show in Las Vegas was one familiar to almost EVERY Airsofter in the USA…Spartan Imports, the home of Classic Army and a slew of other innovators. Check out what everyone saw at SPARTAN as Thumpy turns the camera on the INNOVATIVE GUNS on the way in 2011 and lets them do the talking. Thumpy’s SHOT Show videos sponsored by Big Boy Toys!
MORE DETAILS: An awesome STONER you see on the main table was just the beginning of the Spartan “life”…they have TangoDown and KREBBS CUSTOMS licensed rifles on-the-way, along with all the new releases from their familiar lines, such as Classic Army, G&G, KWA USA and many more. We wanted to explore and discuss the CYBERGUN business arrangement with the top-dogs…and with the video done and the show over, we hope they will entertain some more in-depth questions. But, understand: This show is about BIG BUSINESS…and we appreciate that Spartan Staffers too some of our questions…lets us show you what they have…but used their precious time to SELL guns and gear…and we’ll get up with them soon and update!

AIRSOFT MADE IN THE USA? Maybe not too much longer….
We made a stop at CROSMAN/Game Face Airsoft’s SHOT SHOW display, and had a righteous conversation with several of their product reps, including top Airsoft line guru, Jim Masseth!
Here are some THUMPY Photos from Crosman’s GAME FACE lineup of HIGHER END Airsoft Guns….they are making great strides in upgrading to more metal pistols, licensing with trademarks from BUSHMASTER….
and, leveraging Crosman’s years of experience in CO2 airguns to push out some mighty impressive products..when they put their hearts behind the effort! Here’s a quick look as SOME of what they’ll be putting out from their plant in NEW YORK STATE, USA this year!
Crosman’s BIG SHOT Show announcement involved an electronically controllable Pro-Hunting Grade Air Rifle that is being promoted by Pro Hunter Jim Shockey…so they CAN make a solid product, IF they decide they want to. And, from what we were told at the Crosman display, AIRSOFT is a HUGE and GROWING part of Crosman’s sales totals, so the bosses should be listening to their customers.
IF you’d like a closer look, Check out GAME FACE Airsoft on their webpage RIGHT HERE! And, Thumpy will be pushing out a video interview with Jim Masseth from the SHOT Show 2011 edition SHORTLY!
AND, Special Thanks to Crosman’s Marketing Coordinator Laura Evans, and Web and Social Media Manager Chip Hunnicutt, who used to live in Wilmington, NC…just down the road from THUMPY, before Chip moved NORTH to “Lake Effect Snow Land” in UPSTATE NEW YORK. That is just the OPPOSITE of the move the THUMPSTER made many, many blizzards ago!
It seems somewhat appropriate that KWA USA announces a NEW SPHINX Pistol, with FULL-TRADEMARKS, in a city known for “Caesar’s” and a Huge Pyramid!
And, here is your first look!
Las Vegas, NV and City of Industry, CA – January 18th, 2010 – KWA and Sphinx Arms, Swiss pistol manufacturer, have announced a licensing agreement that will make KWA the worldwide exclusive licensee of Sphinx airsoft replicas. With the patented NS2 technology, KWA will design and manufacture GBB pistols based on Sphinx designs.
Founded in 1876, Sphinx has a world-wide reputation as the benchmark for precision pistols. Manufactured and assembled in Matten/Interlaken, Switzerland, Sphinx products are used by military and law enforcement units in Switzerland and abroad. In the commercial market, Sphinx pistols are valued by competitive shooters.
KWA leads the industry with innovative and high performing airsoft products by combining precision engineering and a passion to outperform. With unparalleled customer and warranty service, KWA strives to ensure that all of its products are of the highest quality and its customers are properly cared for. The introduction of the 2GX AEG (Airsoft Electric Gun) gearbox and the NS2 GBB system has set a new standard in airsoft technology.
OH, and here’s ONE MORE SHOT…with the CELLMATE of the SPHINX….Details on the NEW KRISS FOR AIRSOFT…..COMING SOON!
Thumpy is just back upstairs from a FIRST QUICK RUN to the KWA USA Booth…and our buddy Allen “Allizard” Lau gave us the low-down on just SOME of the new guns they are showing here for the first time!
Wait ’till you get a load of KWA USA’s product line! THIS IS INNOVATION, folks!
THESE ARE JUST FIRST-RUN PICTURES, MORE DETAILS and VIDEO Coming shortly…And if you want NEWS on the KRISS (THIS ONE IS NOT YOUR DADDY’s SUPER V, EITHER!), M-4 “Black Rifles”, H&K Tactical and even RED STAR fans will all be drooling!
First Video is ONLINE on the YouTube Channel…and we’ve talked with KWA USA’s Allen “Allizard” Lau, as they scramble in an all-’nighter to get their booth ready for some MAJOR AIRSOFT ANNOUNCEMENTS on the Opening Day Tuesday!
