It is official. Pacific Solutions Airsoft Club is now a registered association and team within the AGAS network. AGAS stands for Airsoft Association of Geneva and is a well respected organization in Switzerland. The association counts many independent players and teams as well as hosting events every week of the year across their forest and CQB terrains. We look forwards to play airsoft with their members and engage in the association. This is a great opportunity to test our training.
Good to know: associations and their members get significant membership discount. This encourages independent players to create teams or join existing ones for better cohesive gameplay.
It has taken us a little over a year to set thing up, get a terrain and all our gear. Finally, we feel it is time to grow the team slowly and integrate every new member as best we can. This is why we devised a simple PMC styled uniform that is both affordable and made from real deal military grade materials. Hence our recommendations for clothing for Helikon Tex (from Poland) and Pentagon (Greece).
Headwear depends on the weather. We allow three standard items: baseball caps and boonie hats for summer as well as fleece caps for winter. Our team members can choose from Black, Olive Drab, Foliage Green, Ranger Green, Coyote Brown, Dark Earth and Khaki. We do prefer the green tones as they blend in better in our region.
Since we often play in dense forests, muddy fields, makeshift wooden constructions or abandoned buildings, it is very important to protect our hands. This is why all our team members wear sturdy gloves like the Mechanix M-Pact model. We usually wear CB, OD or black ones.
We favor mobility over protection as it allows us to better manoeuvre around opposing teams whilst minimalising hits taken. Our favorite techniques range from hit & run tactics to flanking enemy units. This is why we wear chest rigs and light vests, to minimise weights. This allows us to run, hide and crawl faster than if we wore full battledress and bulky tactical vests. We allow for any chest rig or light tactical vest as long as it comes in a unified green color scheme such as Olive Drab, Foliage Green or Ranger Green.
We strongly advocate the use of tactical belts. With plenty of space to fit a holster, spare mag pouches and essentials such as a first aid kit or a dump pouch, belts are an Airsofter's workhorse. They allow for quick pistol type replicas to be drawn if the primary replicas runs out of ammo or into a malfunction. Belts also speed up reloads for primary and secondary replicas if you place your pouches correctly. We recommend a very thick, sturdy belt that is comfortable to wear even when you're wearing a pistol replica and extra mags from speed pouches.
Our team members' belts can be Black, Olive Drab, Foliage Green, Ranger Green, Coyote Brown, Dark Earth or Khaki. If they wish to be even lighter and faster, some team members can even opt to wear just the belt instead of belt + tactical vest or chest rig. For those that decide to keep the vest, most belts have suspension rings to link the belt to the vest to alleviate weight on the hips.
All our members are required to wear a non camouflaged set of tactical pants, either in CB, Khaki, OD, FG or RG. From experience, we recommend the SFU (special forces uniform) or UTL (urban tactical line) cut from Helikon Tex or any other brand so long as they are made from ripstop cotton.

Pacific Solutions Airsoft Club is proud to announce that we finally have our very own airsoft field to train in. This is our first training and it has given us many ideas for future terrain developments!
After months of hard work we have opted for an 2m high FFA approved protective net on Direct-Filet.com and installed it 60m away from neighboor houses to avoid any accident. We attached the net with a special cable kit onto solid wooden poles planted 50 cm in the ground. Furthermore, we have planted 10 colored targets mid-field to create our first race shooting track. Needless to say, as soon as everything was installed we had a great time testing it out. Stay tuned for more information about future developments!
We have just received a new batch of 10 patches for our new team members. Every patch is made of a thick vinyl layer where the design in printed and a male velcro scratch on the back. They are weatherproof and are so sturdy you can leave them on your clothes when its time to machine wash them.
We'd like to thank Mutiny Shop for their excellent work!
We have secured a terrain in Ségny for 2015 and have the authorisation to build a protective fence to protect non-airsoft players from any flying BB. Work has already begun to plant 2,5 meter poles in the ground: 7 down and 7 to go. Will you help us?
If you are available Saturday January 10th 2015, please contact Mattia or Thomas beforehand via e-mail or WhatsApp. All help will be greatly appreciated!
Happy new year to all our members and readers, may 2015 fulfill all your Airsoft dreams!
We have just received the first batch of official 2015 FFA member cards. As of today: Mattia, Thomas, Anne-Marie, Oskar and Paul are registered and benefit from the MAIF insurance. We are still waiting for David and Nicolas' confirmations and contributions. As a reminder, FFA membership with insurance is 10,40€ for 2015 for small teams. An order for new team patches has been placed and should arrive within January 2015. Stay tuned for more information!
As of 2014, Pacific Solutions Airsoft Club has been a member of FFA. In 2015, we are renewing our membership and have applied for a full package for all our association members, including an insurance policy with the MAIF. I invite you to check out their new policies here and check out the news section to stay updated.
