Welcome to the Reconbrothers Vlogs Page!
Here we show some of the moments in our daily lives, all about shooting of course. This way you get to know who we are, what we do and what drives us to push further. We’ll show you our training sessions, our travels and how we brothers make fun (of each other). 😜
A military style SERE course for civilians, is it worth it?
A few weeks ago, we did a pretty special kind of course from former Georgian special forces operator Zurab Tskitishvili aka “Instructor Delta” at the Delta Survival School.
Due to the interest we got in what we’ve done, we got quite some questions about this 2 day training in Luxembourg. For that reason we decided to sit down & recapitulate our experience to give you a better idea of what value this course can offer to you.
A SERE course by a former Special Forces operator? We’ll definitely suffer but count us in!
Delta Survival School’s SERE course is entirely based on its military version where it originated from. SERE stands for “Survival Evasion Resistance and Escape” and serves a collection of skills and knowledge for an individual to find a way back home with dignity.
Us being guys who have never done any sort of survival or even slept in the outdoors, we can say that this course was definitely a challenge. We learned many things like bushcraft, fire making, camouflage, stealth techniques, creating a concealed camp, navigation and more. We also had to deal with hunger & thirst and only slept for 2h30 out of 45 hours during the entire weekend. So, certainly an interesting vlog for those that want to see us suffer. XD
The latest news about our webshop which has undergone a huge update.
We always aim to improve and recently we have put work in improving our webshop for the better. Some visual changes have been made along with the addition of specialized pages for you to find certain products more easily.
Above that, our shipment system underwent a massive overhaul for all our brands, meaning shipments have become overall cheaper. Also a free shipping criteria now applies for countries outside Europe.
And aside all this, we will show you new brands, products and combo packs (Direct Action, Templar’s Gear, Tasmanian Tiger, Jaktkit, Lalo, York Development) that are incoming as well as what you may expect videos to be about in the near future.
A vlog on what it’s like to learn from a man that trains some of the most elite units in the world.
An insight on what it’s like to get training from a professional SOF/SWAT instructor. Romulus Mihu is quite a unique person that trains some of the most elite Special Forces and SWAT units from all over the world. A while back, we had a day of advanced CQB training from him together with our partner Instructor Delta by using Airsoft guns. We have learned a lot that day and in this vlog we’ll go over some of the stuff when it comes to shooting in CQB environments and what it is like to get professional training.
Lots of news regarding our latest projects!
As always we have been very busy behind the scenes and in this video we’ll update you about our current progress and latest projects. Starting with the news of our very own piece of physical store at our partner Airsoftdoctor in Mechelen Belgium, going to an awesome project with fans of our channel to make a professional short film and also covering the latest releases of products and brands that have been added to our webshop.
Are NVGs legal or illegal in the EU?! We made work to once and for all figure it all out!
A question raised by many looking for one. Some say they’re not legal, some say they are legal but there are restrictions and others say you can face similar charges as owning a full automatic rifle. We were sick of the insecurities, especially since we want to make them available over our shop, and decided to get into contact with the correct government services and dive into the laws.
A professional urban center with both outdoor and indoor facilities to train various aspects in modern world tactical scenarios. That’s what this new facility in Genk (Belgium) is all about. It is build with the aim to train professional military & law enforcement personnel, but is also accessible for civilians that are looking for a proper training location without worrying about all the regulations. The facility will also be provided with features to comply numerous different scenarios and can even be used to train in pitch-black with NVG devices. As far as we know, this is probably a one of a kind in our regions.
We’ve done it, 10 000 subscribers baby!

A vlog showing our latest website & shop updates, newly incoming brands and more stuff!
We never sit still and that’s no different during these Corona times and today we’ll show you just that in this behind the scenes. Lately our platform underwent a pretty big update. Pages like our loadouts and our recommended brands have been updated to our most recent knowledge. We welcome Streamlight® to our webshop and the testing of various other products are taking place during these times. We’ll also share even more news in the video.
Yep we decided to get a firearms license in Belgium, but it’s not as easy as you may think.
A lot has changed since our first shooting trial last year. We have gotten invitations from all over Europe to go shoot lead and we’re getting closer with the MI/LE sector. Due to these and some other reasons, we now added a new goal to our list to start with sport shooting above doing airsoft. Today we bring our very first vlog of this new goal where we show you what is exactly needed to get our licenses in Belgium.
How did we came to where we are today? Here we’ll share you our story.
Like everyone, we once started as noobs. We have come a long way since 5 years ago, but it wasn’t all laid out for us. We too made mistakes and had to learn from our disappointments that came along with Airsoft. From those failures we aimed to do things better and different than most others do today. This thrive got us into contact with other amazing individuals that all want to offer quality products and great services.
We’re here to help you on your Airsoft journey and to set new standards of what Airsoft can be in the future.
Our last video of 2019 has dropped. And we’re ending it with a throwback video on this amazing first year as us being Reconbrothers on Youtube.
We’ve met cool people, been to awesome places and learned incredible stuff. 2019 was an immense leap and achievements for us Reconbrothers being on Youtube. We have produced a total of 52 videos of which some have done really great, have given away many giveaways and our web shop has gone online as well.
As a token to remember this year, we’re having a look at the things we’ve done and the biggest highlights in our first year being Reconbrothers on Youtube.
Short video of the 5th anniversary event at our local Airsoft shop “Airsoft Doctor” in Boom, Belgium.
There were special guests going from Titan to Redwolf Airsoft to Instructor Delta and ourselves. You could visit our personal equipment on this day and there were lots of cool giveaways to win as well. This drew the attention of many to come have a visit at this 2 day event. It was nice meeting some of our fans and helping other people to get introduced/more familiar with the sport and what we do.
Special thanks to Neo.airsofter (IG account) for the added footage. Special thanks to our partners http://www.airsoftdoctor.be/ & https://www.deltasurvivalschool.com/
Recently we got the opportunity to get tactical training from an ex-special forces operator called Instructor Delta. This is the vlog of our experience and the introduction of our “Training” section videos/blogs.
A while back we met a very special man who worked as a special forces operator in the Georgian military. This man has dedicated himself to make people become fit, learn to deal with stress and gives tactical courses, courses of bushcraft, krav maga, shooting, etc.
The cool thing about these courses is that most of the basics can be done with the use of Airsoft guns. So we arranged everything to get such a course to improve our skills and become better shooters.
Special thanks to Instructor Delta for the training
This week we’re celebrating our 1K subscribers achievement with a Q&A video.
We’ll be answering and giving our opinions on a selection of 17 questions you guys have send to us through Youtube, Facebook, Instagram & e-mail.
You’ll find out how we started doing Airsoft and how we experience the world of Airsoft here in Belgium and Holland, as well as what our favorite guns are, what we’re aiming towards, what our next purchases are, what we’re doing these days, etc.
We’ve never shot a real firearm before till this day, only Airsoft guns (with and without recoil). But we recently got the opportunity to shoot with some real steel guns for our first time in a shooting club in Belgium.
In today’s vlog you’ll see our first experience with shooting real weapons going from pistols to assault rifles with various bullet sizes (.22 mm, .223 mm & 9 mm).
For us being Airsofters, besides it being an awesome experience, it also enables us to compare the “airsoft vs real gun” handling and performance. See what we think of the differences and how well we’ve performed on our first real steel shooting session.
Last weekend was our first time at IWA 2019 fair in Nürnberg Germany.
We had a blast, met a lot of popular Airsofters and visited a lot of great brands and their (new) products like Lowa, Tasmanian Tiger, Tokyo Marui, G&G, Umarex, VegaForceCompany, UF Pro, etc.
We weren’t able to film much due to the heavy schedule but made a short vlog/compilation of the things we saw.
In this video we’ll show you 5 Things Airsofters DO WRONG. We’ve mixed it up with gameplay footage of a 2018 Halloween airsoft event in Belgium to show you some in field examples.
After a day with poor game rules and a lack of mission depth we couldn’t make something like our usual operation videos. So, we decided to make something different.
We want to show you these examples because most of them come down to the very basics of shooting, moving and communicating. If you want to outperform the competition and win your airsoft battles, you have to get the basics right.
Our airsoft training starts every Monday at 1800 hours at Nuketown.
In our first vlog you’ll get to see how our Mondays usually look like. The airsoft tactical CQB training drills we do involve target acquisition, trigger response, shooting while moving, room clearing, etc.
And yes, this means we’re also showing you some kick ass shooting footage! 🤘🏼
