So we’re back with more answered questions from the community. Not a local player, but someone we know all to well, some even maybe a little too well (Bill Riley)! Fellow ex-Green Jacket and beautiful b*****d, Ladies and Cross-Dressers I give to you, the hammer of the Ai500 Green Team, Mr Scott Connal.
Name: Scott Connal
Callsign: Slutty Dog
Team/site/Business: Norvern Monkeys
Pew Pew – How long have you been playing Airsoft?
Scott – About eight years now.
Pew Pew – Where did you find out about Airsoft?
Scott – Whilst I was still serving, a few mates were into airsoft………took me a long time to finally have a go.
Pew Pew – What is the reason you have continued with the sport for the time that you have?
Scott – Comradeship and enjoyment, it’s my ‘man time’ lol
Pew Pew – What benefits/traits/perks have you gained from the sport? Has it directly affected your life in any way?
Scott – I’ve become better at hiding guns and kit from the wife………she’d knife me if she knew how much I’ve spent since starting! I’ve made some brilliant friends all over the country and abroad.
Pew Pew – Things that put you off about the sport?
Scott – Glory hunters and players with a lack of integrity.
Pew Pew – Your top 3 Airsoft RIF brands and why?
Scott – G&P, G&G and TM, all are externally excellent and have fair priced internals, you can’t beat TM for pistols.
Pew Pew – Your top 3 Tactical Gear brands and why?
Scott – Warrior (I’m a real warrior slut!!) and blackhawk for rigs etc, it’s not the cheapest but you pay for the quality, helikon for clothing, it’s reasonably priced and lasts well if looked after.
Pew Pew – Where do you want the sport to take you in the next 5 years? do you have any Airsoft related ambitions?
Scott – Win or lose I love leading the green team for the AI 500 events, I’m happy with the position I’m in now, I just hope I can continue. With my Home team the ‘norvern monkeys’ I look forward to visiting more different sites.
Pew Pew – Whats the one piece of advice you would give to a new player?
Scott – Stand back, stay quiet and work out who the right person is to approach for advise.
Pew Pew – Favourite airsoft related object you own or wish to own….no matter how stupid?
Scott – My G&P M16A3/203, it’s a real beast, I bought from land warrior as a custom build (don’t ask how much?? Lol) our beloved Frenchie is the only technician allowed to touch it lol
Thanks Slutty you champ you, always a pleasure to speak to you and hear your advice. If you ever want to experience real leadership, hop onto Ai500’s next event in September. Stay tuned for another installment this week where we interview everyone’s favourite ginger!
