T.A. Airsoft at the 9th Annual Gritogether

T.A. Airsoft will be attending our Gritogether this year. They will be setting up a shooting range and they will bring weapons from different eras to choose from. They stopped by this week to show us some of the weapons they will be using. These are a 1:1 scaled ratio. Pictured above is LCpl Andrew Wilson (left) Field and Marketing Mgr at T.A. Airsoft (middle is Sgt Grit and in second picture is Sgt James Williams,) and (right) Daniel Turner Airsoft Technician. We are really looking forward to having these guys come out that day and allowing Marines and friends to shoot these weapons and have a lot of fun!

This year’s Gritogether

Sgt. Grit,

I had the priviledge to take my fiance and son to this years festivities.  What a blast it has been this last year to finally see The Place and meet The Sgt. behind all those goodies I have bought over the years.  I'm not sure the future wife really understood the pride I sang our beloved hymn or the gleam in my eye just being in the same place with that many Marines again.  My little buddy here loved the temporary tattoos.  He wore them with pride just like his daddy, and cried when I finally washed them off a week later.  Thank you for a great time and letting me introduce my boy and future wife to the Marines!  OOHRAH!
