  1. Hey everyone, just wanted to introduce myself and hopefully get a couple of people to say hi to before I have my first game at The Mall. I know a similar thread is currently active but didn't want to hijack it. I played air soft for a brief period about 10 years ago, but ended up giving it up because I was in my mid-teens at the time and I didn't like the restrictions that came with that, both the rule restrictions and money, transport etc. I haven't got any dates booked yet but I'm looking to play a Thursday night game in the next couple of weeks or so. The Mall is only a 10 minute drive from my house and has a lot of good reviews so it will probably be my regular site as long as I enjoy it. I've ordered my own eye and face protection to take with me as I imagine the rental stuff is probably that nasty black plastic stuff I was so fond of when I first played Speaking of which does anybody know what rental guns are available at the Mall? If anyone is heading to the Mall on a Thursday in the next 2 or 3 weeks and doesn't mind a new face tagging along then definitely drop me a reply Cheers
  2. Out of interest, when I played it was semi-auto only, is this common place for The Mall? I think I would prefer it that way rather than full auto.
  3. Sorry for the late reply. I had a blast, had to leave before the last game because I had work early the next day. Learnt a few lessons, fogging was an issue I'm going to have to start trying to overcome, looking at trying anti-fog wipes to see if that helps. The rental AEG wasn't actually too bad, had a minor issue with the safety not having a positive click on semi so it caught me out at the start of a couple of games when I thought it was on semi but wasn't quite right. I did have plans to play the mall again with a group of friends this past Sunday but the snow had other ideas for me Thankfully the guys at Zed let me move my booking to April 1st so that'll be my next game.
  4. First game will be this Thursday night. Didn't plan on booking two games so close but found out earlier this week that an old friend is actually playing there on Sunday.
  5. Got a second game booked at the mall for this Sunday too now thanks to a cancellation
  6. That's the plan at the moment unfortunetly
  7. I have all my own camo and gear through my work already, it's just the AEG that is the main barrier at the moment. I only personally know one other person who plays and he is up in Lincolnshire so the chance we will have to play together will be extremely limited.
  8. Yeah I'm gonna be playing their routinely. I understand and support the reasoning behind it fully, but it sucks that you have to play at a site for over 2 months before you can get the UKARA. That is a lot of money in rental gear that could be going to something more permanent.
  9. Reading. I don't mind travelling for a few hours to big events since I'll probably keep those down to probably 1 every other month and keep the mall as my regular place to just skirmish.
  10. Eventually but I need to get UKARA stuff out of the way first. MilSim is my main attraction to the sport but can't find anywhere local that holds regular games to get the UKARA that way.
  11. Ahh okay, was hoping you'd have had experience with Stirling airsoft, they seem to be one of the biggest UK event holder's from what I can see online.
  12. @steakandpotato Where do you play your milsim games?
  13. I'll be happy walking away having experienced neither on Thursday night.... hopefully
  14. All booked up and paid for. Got together a half decent set of eye and face protection
  15. From what I've read on the site I have to pay at least 4 days before because I'm renting. Will do, thanks
  16. Yeah it's the 15th, need to get the payment information from Zed first but it say's there is spaces so it should be fine hopefully. Haha I'll be in a black polo with either olive or MTP trousers and brown boots, and a rental gun of course.
  17. UPDATE: Just sent an Email off to Zed Adventures to try and book a game for next Thursday night. Both excited and nervous, kind of jumping back in a bit blind. Anyone who is going to be there definitely feel free to say hello, I'll be the one looking lost
  18. @Jedi_Master Thanks for the welcome @Duff I'll probably end up there most Thursdays this month just to get the UKARA sorted out and get myself away from the rental scene @EDcase I'll definitely be branching out to other sites after I have a UKARA and some kit sorted out, so I'll probably try Absolute Airsoft amongst a few other places. I mainly played woodland games when I played the first time around so i'll probably end up playing woodland and MilSim games a lot. Oh and all this talk about painful shots is reminding me how much a pair of gloves helps out
  19. Thank you very much. Yeah it does seem to be very populated by Mall players nowadays. Not bad for me but unfortunate for others around the country.
