Giving Up ):

42 posts in this topic

this is a way too expensive and complex hobby for me, theres no one who can dedicate the time to help me really, i need someone to spend a good hour or so talking to me so i understand what i need and how to start the sport, and the box standard cheap guns start in at £100+ that put me at a disadvantage against other players anyway.

 

Thanks for your help though guys,

Bye

If you really wanted to play this sport. I suggest waiting till your 16-18 and have a job and can also actually buy and wear the equipment.

 

You will also be allowed to go to any site as well.

I find that hard to believe. I haven't spent much.

 

People seem to burn money on airsoft. I've never had that problem.. And what's complicated about shopping around for the best deal on a firearm and learning the rules?

First off yes you do, look here instead:

 

http://actionhobbys.co.uk/JG-G36-AEG-2-Tone_AIWDF.aspx

 

You can then continue to get the rest from the same store:

 

Speedloader; http://actionhobbys.co.uk/Speed-Loader_A9XRY.aspx

BB's; http://actionhobbys.co.uk/BAW-3000-High-Gr...g-BB_AFRLY.aspx

 

Full face mask is usually provided by the skirmish site or equivalent form of protection.

 

Mags; http://actionhobbys.co.uk/High-Capacity-Ma...-AEG_A9NVR.aspx

 

Obviously you can shop around if you like, just I would prefer to go all from the same place.

The one I linked is a JG.

 

Unfortunately you have no way round the whole 2 tone business untill you are over 18 and UKARA registered.

 

EDIT: Since you can't buy it now, it doesn't matter that it is out of stock, they will have new.

yes you will need UKARA for that particular gun however the shop may offer a two-toning service

 

just a quick niggle you wont need the speed loader for if your getting hi-caps also there is no need to spend £30 on a face mask all you need is a cheap mesh mask like this

face mask

its cheap and it does the job

 

just my 2p

I have no idea about that. You would have to contact the store themselves and ask them. You could also google for two tone JG G36C's and see what you come up with and who has them in stock.

Since its a lot of money maybe you should rent at Dragon Valley first to make sure you like it. You wouldn't want to waste £236.88 on something you might not enjoy.

That would be a shame to save up, go in and not like it (hopefully you'll love it), and have all that cash that you saved hard for just to buy a load of airsoft stuff and then decide not to get it. I would definitely recommend taking a go first, you never know you could meet a few people you really like, and people might have stuff up for sale there on the cheap ;)

1) Rent. you will be given a gun for the day with a mask and a few BB's.

 

2) Your buying un needed amounts of stuff which you could easily limit down. for example 5 bottles of 5000 BB's ? and a speedloader? ive never used one, infact i hate them. the g36 comes with a 420? (iirc) round hi cap.

 

3) Nothing wrong with wearing civi's and use pockets to hold ammo. everyone starts somehwere.

 

4) Its a hobby and all hobbies are expensive once you get the basics.

 

5) Enjoy the sport.

 

;)

 

Step 1

 

 

Rent - £30 (you should get some BB's)

 

Step 2

 

You Rent again

 

--OR--

 

Step 3

 

Buy a G36 and a bottle of BB's and a facemask.

 

£135

 

There, when your working on a budget you gotta make do, use your pockets.

 

Learn to walk before you learn to run.

 

If you are enjoying the sport, expand your loadout and then you can buy extra magazines and vests etc

 

Learn to walk before you learn to run.

That makes more sense

And for my 14th birthday party

Guess what I'm doing....

^_^

 

And I will stick to one extra HiCap

2 (good amount I think?) Bottles of BB

Not bothering with the belt

That should bring the price bellow £200 I'm hoping

 

thought id make a new post so theres more chance of people reading

 

Brand New Shopping List [Click Too See!] (again:P) :-

Mesh Goggles = £7.99

Viper Neoprene Comfort Mask = £7.99

Speed Loader (only get one HiCap with gun and i dont wanna buy another)

Two-Tone JG MP5 A4 = £119.95

'BAW Tube' 5.5K BB Super-Deal (Single bottle) 5500 0.20g BB's = £8.99

'BAW Bag' 3K BB Super-Deal (Single refill bag) 3000 0.20g BB's = £4.99

Replica MICH 2000 helmet (mum has "safety issues :() = £24.99

TOTAL=£142.20 (without shipping and incl. VAT)

 

 

 

only questions, is that enough stuff, is it too much, and is the gun any good? (gun was recommended by staff from Dragon Valley ((the one they use for there rentals)) and is there any good cheap sights on that website?

 

Thanks

as I've already said you won't need a speed loader for a hi-cap

and why waste money on buying a sight, the manufacturers include some for free (iron sights)

the high cap holds a quite a low amount for a high cap

and for the convenience of an easy reload 4 quid is nothing
