Shocking to many, our VIPs are real, not "youtube-made up".
Mil Sim stands for Military Simulation. Mil Sim Airsoft is all about understanding and appreciating the working orders of the real military by providing attendees both Warning Orders (WarnOrd or commercially known as Player Kit), and an unique combat environment with noted retired and former Military personalities to lead participants in combat. Mil Sim is about following orders and watching out for your battle buddy, not "Hot Dogging". Mil Sim is about gearing up in the proper uniform/gear and focusing on your Mission. In short, Mil Sim is about "Honor-Tactics-Unity".
Standard paintball tournaments are non-military and operate in a series of 10-15 minute games based on capture the flag or speedball. Each team is usually made up of 5-6 individuals.
Lion Claws series events are based on military style missions with a military style command structure. Each scenario could run anywhere from 90-180 minutes up to and including including full day scenarios. Each Squad is made up of 12 personnel, each Platoon is made up of 4 squads plus a Platoon Leader and a Platoon Sergeant.
Depending on the size of the event, each Company could consist of 3-4 platoons. Each event can have one or more Companies per side, and each side will generally have a VIP Commander.

Automatic registration system will group members by TEAM AFFILIATION, meaning as long as you and your buddies have the same TEAM NAME (spelling and grammar must be the same), we will do our very best to group you together.
If you and your men, 35 or more, want to be in the SAME PLATOON, please put down your PLATOON NAME (not team name) in the TEAM AFFILIATION area in your REGISTRATION so we know to group you all together.
There is ONE Sniper/Spotter team PER PLATOON and they must be 21+ and approved by Platoon Leader.
Attendees range from accountants, bankers, business owners, clerks, corporate types, current and past military/law enforcement, designers, to lawyers, models, programmers, students, teachers, etc. Remember this is NOT about "War", it's about "Team Effort".

All events are 18+ unless noted otherwise. As of 2015, all minors ages 14-17 (not accepting anyone younger at 3-day events) must be Camp Wolverine (link! click it for more info) certified. Once certified, the minor may apply directly to attend 3-day events unless prohibited by law or location management. Parent Consent Form is still required by law.
Airsoft BB's can certainly cause injury if shot at a close range. We require every participant to wear full seal goggles for eye protection. Our FPS (BB velocity) procedures are strict and not negotiable to ensure all participants' safety.
While we strongly recommend full face masks for better protection, it is not required.
Shooting glasses that are FULLY SEALED around your face are allowed. Standard eyeglass version not permitted.
This varies based upon the terrain of each event. At least a modicum of fitness is generally required.
Female attendees have become commonplace at our events.
Due to the nature of these events, spectators are not allowed.
Due to camp site (personal belongs and such) security, we do not allow friends and families; in fact, most of our AO (area of operation) would not permit non-registered personnel on site unless specified otherwise (case by case).
Cameras are allowed but no filming unless specified due to the official movie crews at work.
While possible, the number of slots for SAW gunners and Snipers is limited. We ask all attendees to be flexible. Inflexible attendees are not welcome.
Since our events are usually two to three day events, camping is popular with most attendees while some prefer the comfort of local motels. A food vendor is generally available from the local area or people may choose to drive to local restaurants or stay in camp and cook.
Portable toilets are provided at all our events while light towers may be provided at our events that last more than one day.
Neither BB showers nor high capacity or box mags are allowed at our events (unless the mag is for a squad weapon, i.e. SAW) since our focus is more tactical and less "spray and pray".
Simple, email me with your real life credentials and explain your desire to serve others.
Cheating is penalized by both deduction from the point total of the cheater's unit and by PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT. We believe in Public Humiliation.
Fortunately the caliber of the participants at our events attract are above and beyond the petty types. However, if such a thing were to occur, fights will result in Point Deduction from the respective units, PUBLIC ANNOUNCMENT, EXPULSION from the event without refund and likely banning from all Best of USA events. We generally have police officers among attendees to assist with this type of behavior as well.
All registrations are binding contracts. Cancellation and substitution policy are listed on each event homepage. Please kindly read them before you register. Typically no penalty on cancellations 30-days out(substitutions accommodated with penalty if made 30 days prior to event date). A $40 processing fee will apply to all Cancellations and Substitutions within 30 days up to 21 days of event. No refund within 21 days of event (this is simply due to our own payment schedule and swag processing/ordering time, we, too, must meet payment deadlines with penalties). Substitution ($40 fee applied) may be requested up to 14 days of event date due to SECURITY ROSTER deadline. No refund nor "credit" on NO SHOWs (please note that each location is owned by a different owner, what you paid out to location A has no baring on the next project location).
