Electric City Airsoft opening in Great Falls
Posted by Simone DeAlba (email@example.com)
“GREAT FALLS – Electric City Airsoft is opening in Great Falls on Saturday, and it’s being promoted as a sport, a hobby, and even a training tool.
Airsoft lets participants gear up and take shots at each other using replica firearms that shoot small pellets; people can team up and engage in several types of activities, such as “attack and defend,” “team versus team,” and “last man standing.”
Allen Steensrud, the owner, says that his goal is to bring excitement to Great Falls for all ages:You have to like excitement because when you get in here it’s pure adrenaline, excitement. The weaponry is absolutely realistic.”
He explained, “We are focusing down the road on getting law enforcement in here, it has great applications for the military, for the city, it provides a training environment for them and it is absolutely realistic.”
Allen says for anybody with doubts, safety is their first concern and they teach all of their members a healthy respect for armed weapons: “It very much promotes gun safety; we are starting kids at a young age for them to understand guns, how to operate them, how they function, and the danger of them if they are not handled properly.”
As the sport of airsoft becomes more popular, they hope to continue expanding by offering unique events to help keep Great Falls active.
Allen said, “We want to at some point have Nerf nights for kids ten and under, which would be really fun, you know it’s to get them off the couch, away from the video games, get some exercise and do it for real.”
Electric City Airsoft is located at 1441 NW Bypass; for more information, all 406-771-6666, or to visit their Facebook page: Electric City Airsoft, LLC.
