Hey everyone, most you know by now I sell airsoft items and host events. Well what many of you didn't know was that I have been in the middle of opening a airsoft shop the past couple of months.
I wanted to take a little bit of time today to expose my new project and some cool and exciting offerings in the future.
Let's start with
The Airsoft Shop.
This is who we are:
This is where we are located:
1185 12th St. SE
Salem, OR 97302
The gun store hours are:
Monday thru Saturday 11-6
Blackwater Tactical are more of a high end gun store that specializes in a ton of stuff. The shop is renowed for their awesome customer service and attitude and great prices.
Here are photos of the store:
NOW ONTO THE AIRSOFT PORTION "Where I come in"
This is my section:
Sorry for the blurry photos. My area is not super huge, it's more than enough as a starting point (end goal is PDX location and that maybe a very soon reality). I will only sell products from reptuable manufacturers which is a rather small list. You will never hear me place the blame on the manufacturers for selling you junk. If it's crap, I won't sell it. If it's from some company that I cannot speak with, I will not sell it.
I will be now be known as Blackwater Tactical Airsoft flying under the Blackwater Tactical banner. I have not finalized the store hours yet but I will be open Sat & SUNDAY for sure unless I am attending an event or hosting one which I will post on my website (being created now).
I will be open sometime in the months of October/November and will make an announcement as I draw closer.
Be prepared for new and exciting ways to purchase airsoft from your local retailer and have that different but better customer to retailer relationship. Oh and yeah awesome prices as well.
ONTO Event Hosting
Despite having the shop. I will still be providing Airsoft Events as well.
2012 is going to mark a completely new way of hosting games from me as I break away from traditional event hosting formulas and go more of the way of entertainment with much more props, post game value such as Gaming tournaments and outdoor movies and totally inclusive style of events where you pay the fee at the door and your meals, extras and entertainment are all provided for you.
However for the players still looking for that bargain basement hosting and game value - I may not be your cup of tea anymore but let's see where I end up.
I have begun the acquistion of serious props such as demilled AT4 rocket launchers and some home built rocket launcher systems and various military surplus. Got a large outdoor movie screen, sound system, projector and nice generator along with a new battery recharge station.
I have come to an agreement with warpaint to provide weekday airsoft games during the good weather times of the year. I am working with schools for after school programs for youth during the summer. Begin the working of a league style system for team competitions and a slew of other ideas.
I also will be trying to start blocking some of my popular games into weekend events so that I can free up more time for you other guys hosting out there
Anyways I am excited and pumped. I don't need any of your "debbie downer messages" or "tell me how I should be doing it" Hopefully show some support and excitement and look out for 2012. It's going to be awesome and I will be "winning"
