Ukraine agrees to host NATO war games

Russian gas giant Gazprom on Tuesday April 1st announced it was ending a discount enjoyed by Kiev in a major blow for the Ukrainian economy, as Ukraine approved the holding of joint military exercises with NATO close to Russia's newly-annexed region of Crimea.

Ukraine's parliament unanimously approved a series of joint military exercises with NATO countries that would put US troops in direct proximity to Russian forces in the annexed Crimea peninsula.

The exercises now scheduled in the coming months include two sets of exercises (land and sea) with the United States, two with Poland, and one with Romania.

"This is a good opportunity to develop our armed forces," acting defense minister Mykhailo Koval told Verkhovna Rada lawmakers ahead of the 235-0 vote.

The decision came as NATO foreign ministers gathered in Brussels for a two-day meeting dominated by concern over the recent buildup of Russian forces near Crimea that US officials estimate had at one point reached about 40,000 troops.

NATO has sought to reinforce its eastern frontier after Russia's takeover of Ukraine's Black Sea peninsula and amid concerns about Kremlin's emboldened foreign policy.

Chile Earthquake: 8.2-Magnitude Quake Kills Six; Powerful Aftershocks Continue

Fresh off the heels of a magnitude-8.2 earthquake off the coast of northern Chile Tuesday night, a powerful aftershock struck the country at 9:58 p.m. EDT Wednesday.

A magnitude-7.8 tremor was reported about 25 miles southwest of Iquique, Chile. It caused buildings to shake in the port of Iquique, which saw some damage from the big quake on Tuesday. There are no immediate reports of new damage or injuries.

The latest tremor came 45 minutes after a strong 6.4-magnitude aftershock shook the same area.

The shaking that began at 8:46 p.m. Tuesday also touched off landslides that blocked roads, knocked out power for thousands, damaged an airport and started fires that destroyed several businesses. Some homes made of adobe were destroyed in Arica, a city close to the quake's offshore epicenter.

About 300 inmates escaped from a women's prison in the city of Iquique, and officials said Chile's military was sending a planeload of special forces to guard against looting. According to La Tercera, the regional prosecutor for the Tarapaca region says that 100 of about 300 prisoners escaped after the earthquake have been recaptured.

President Michelle Bachelet declared a state of emergency and was reviewing the damage in Iquique, a northern coastal city of nearly 200,000 people near where the quake struck in the Pacific Ocean. A planeload of 100 anti-riot police was deployed along with 300 soldiers to prevent looting and round up escaped prisoners.

Brazil President Dilma Roussef sent a message of support and solidarity and has promised assistance to Chile. On Twitter, she posted: "The Brazilian government will help our Chilean brothers in any way possible."

Chile is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries. A magnitude-8.8 quake and ensuing tsunami in central Chile in 2010 killed more than 500 people, destroyed 220,000 homes, and washed away docks, river fronts and seaside resorts.

The strongest earthquake ever recorded on Earth also happened in Chile -- a magnitude-9.5 tremor in 1960 that killed more than 5,000 people. That quake also produced a Pacific-wide tsunami that killed dozens in Hawaii and over 100 in Japan.

Airsoft - Our Sport is Threatened once Again!

From our friends over at Spartan Imports. Sean and I discussed this last night and we feel that we as a combined voice may be able to turn the tide on this attack on our beloved sport. Don't let the ‘system’ take what is ours.



Dear Airsoft Enthusiast,



Our beloved hobby is once again under attack by politicians who have an incomplete understanding of the laws and regulations under which our hobby exist. California SB 798 was crafted as a kneejerk reaction to a tragic… Continue

Review of Western Arms M4 GBB

There have been lot of writing about the Western Arms newly made Gas blowback M4. Most of this are from people giving it a hard time because of leaking magazines and parts that break.



First of all I could say that this must be the most fun airsoft I have ever had.. I just LOVE my systema PTW.. but this one is so realistic I just love it more.

When I am talking about realism it is not for the weight or 1:1 but rather the use of it.

It got all the part functional. So bolt… Continue

Bell EG720 Colt 1911A1 GBB

I had just bought this last April 25 at MAS. I was gonna get a nice KSC M11A1 mini Uzi, but I was too late. The last of the stocks were sold, so, I decided to get a different gun. The Bell EG720 got my attention, so, after a bit of checking out the gun, I had bought one, along with a new can of 134a (I also own a Maruzen Walther PPK/s, which was out of gas already), a spare magazine for the 1911, a bag of bbs and a bb loader.



The Gun



So, this is what came out of the… Continue
