    She looks fucking badass! When I get all my gear together I hope I’ll look just as sick! Where do you play?

    Not all girls like to play army I guess, and a lot of us find it a bit intimidating because of all the burly men waving guns around 😂 But it is a really good sport and a lot more females should get involved! It’s great to bring everyone together!

    Yeah I’m hoping so, the ones he gave me had two long batteries attached to one another but they’re way too long. The singular ones my brother picked up fit fine. I don’t have a case but I’ll take it down in the original box, unloaded and nice and safe 👌😂

    Although the guns sorted, went and picked up my new lipo batteries and get all the way home and they don’t fit in the gun without being squished and even then the top hand rail won’t fit on 🙄 so another trip down to see Luke on Saturday! The cabs there and back are costing me more than this gun! 😂

    Yeah I’ll definitely have to try some bits on then! Im chunky and funky so I’ll be sure to find that if I ordered it online it wouldn’t fit me! Im going to call that place in Bas to see if they have a shop, but I’ll be sure to pop into somewhere

    Went into RoE today, luke sorted my SIG out! Turns out the fuse had fallen out of place, he taped it all down and it seemed to fire nicely! Can’t wait to give it a go, hopefully works for me now! I will be down to AP with my brother one weekend soon, need to get some kit though; goggles, mask, camo outfit 👌 need to get some target practice this weekend! Anyone know where I can get some cheap army gear like from a surplus or something? I’m based in Basildon.

    Haha I hope so! You wouldn’t believe how sad I was! I really was looking forward to my first aeg! Like a kid in a candy shop! Ruined my whole day aha! Shops open Tuesday so will pop down then!

    Yeah that sounds like a plan actually when you put it that simply it sounds easy aha! Ill defintely pop some questions for them to answer and they might not feel so uncomfortable after that!

    I had read up about Billericay and didn’t know that skirmish billaricay and plantation were different things! Nice guy at the shop recommendend plantation as it is where he plays! I just cant wait to get more into the sport, once I’m more into it I’ll defintely feel more at home! And excited about all the calories I’ll be burning 😂 I found the marshalls at Hockley we’re lovely! Accidentally shot one and he took it like a champ so in my good books haha

    Yeah it pretty much was like 1st shot fine 2nd, 3rd and on the 4th just nothing, no dry fire nothing at all! It was a good experience! Just frustrating when people don’t call hits or ignore rules! I know! From my first time at Hockley I noticed it’s defintely a male driven sport, and from what I heard very boysterous banter 😂 but I’m quite a tomboy hence why I want to play army with all the lads 👌 hopefully Billericay is a nice warm welcome!

    Thanks everyone your comments have been really helpful! although I Know I should have waited until I did my 3 matches to gain my UKARA, I eagerly went ahead and bought a SIG 552 from roe firearms! They had a great deal on so couldn’t help myself! Unfortunately when test firing it just died on me and plugging in a healthy battery won’t even make it dry fire! Taking it back soon to see what went wrong! As for CQB it was good and boy did some of the shots hurt, but I found in the commotion and adrenaline rush some of the opposite team wasn’t calling blatant hits and also ignored the close up rule of no shooting! And talking to other players I really would like to do more! I found that it was difficult at first, it felt like when a female walked in everyone was whispering then pointing in my direction, and not many people wanted to speak to me! After a while some teammates involved me more within the game, but in the kitting up room wasn’t very vocal! I guess this will come with time!
  15. Hey all!! I stumbled across Airsoft through a shared video on Facebook of Silo a youtuber who’s videos intritugued me! I then look more and more into Airsoft and was amazed by how cool it looks! So me, my brother and few friends tried out Hockley Airsoft which is a CQB site. Heard mixed reviews but was cheap and didn’t want to splash the cash on my first time incase I didn’t like it! discovered I absolutely loved it and now cannot wait to play in an outdoor setting which I feel I would prefer a lot more! Just wanted some advice on a beginners loadout, gun, tactics, UKARA, best places to go and shops to visit! All that good stuff! Thanks everyone!
