New to everything airsoft

37 posts in this topic

Hey one of my friends who i work with in the army told me about airsoft and im really interested in taking it up, but i dont know where to start. Ive got my military equipment which i can use but as for people to play with i dont know anyone who i could do it with near to me.

If anyone else is new and lives around Leicester then drop me a message.

 

Also all help and advice would be appreciated for this noob

 

Cheers

Amy

Welcome to the sport and the forums :D

 

google 'airsoft map' or 'airsoft leicester' to find sites near where you are, as far as weapon wise, would you be looking at something similar to what you use in the army or something completely different?

 

any questions, ask away, we're all here to help

i will try to contact her, see if she could send you a message? but i think i could use a budget, ie £100-200 or £200-300 or £300-400 or £400+ because in the £300-400 range there are some really nice SA80, which i assume is the family of weapons your using?

Welcome to the forums :)

 

Matt! and Nutster are near Leicester, favoured sites being MAW (Melton Airsoft Warfare) near Melton Mowbray, Urban Assault (a bit further south near Peterborough).

 

There's also Grange Farm Airsoft which is close to Leicester, depends where about you are around Leicester to be honest :lol:

You have to start somewhere and everyone will always be friendly at the site, I wouldn't worry about turning up on your own too much. If not then persuade others to come along :)

What are your thoughts on using the airsoft rifles on sites.

As i dont have my own and hopefully purchase one after the 3 games rule thing.

Other than that i have my own equipment.. i.e ballistic goggles camo.. vest etc

any site that doesnt hire a decent rifle isn't worth the time tbh.

They will always give you something completely skirmishable (allbeit somewhat battle-scarred), they want you to keep playing so they won't give you a gun you won't be any use with.

no, being useless is down to the player :lol:

welcome to the forums :D recently ive seen a few female members joining the forums... you may be able to get an SA80 for just under £300... http://www.zerooneairsoft.com/product_info...roducts_id=2035 that SA80 is just under 300 but postage costs will bump it up a little, it is probably shorter to the one u use in the army... but it will be quite good in CQB... on the other hand if you want to bump your budget up a little you could look through these: http://www.zerooneairsoft.com/index.php?cP...ir=a&page=2 the first 4 are SA80's (well duh :P) have a look and if you bumo your budget of some more you can spoil yourself with one of these http://www.actionhobbies.co.uk/Piper-P3-13...un_AIY6G.aspx?0
