Edmonton Scout Snipers

These guys hail from Canada and are discussed in the latest edition of Airsoft International, in their 'Ready Room' feature

As part of an airsoft 'team' myself, I couldn't help but be a little impressed by how 'together' they look. Placing themselves fairly and squarely at the Milsim end of what is a very broad airsofting spectrum, they give a very good impression of being a coherent unit, wearing the same camo, similar headgear and webbing, and even going to the trouble of carrying the same weapon platform so they can easily interchange magazines

The team have a website, too, with quite an impressive opening sequence, however, it is currently in the process of construction. No doubt, when it's finished, you will be able to learn a lot more about them from there

The 'Home' page of the ESS website
Personally, I reckon it makes for some interesting reading as it stands and I'm intrigued by the overall 'feel' of it, replete as it is with 'real deal' organisational and operational references, members in maroon berets and a logo clearly inspired by 'you know who'

Are they the ideal airsoft team? I'll let you decide, but I'd be interested to know your thoughts
