  1. I promised an update about the site, so here's something that I'm currently working on in my spare time. A highly requested feature: to browse sites using a map. Well, it's coming! Right now it's early days, but as you can see there's already a few sites on here. Both, the map and the list will be in sync, so what you'll see on the map will show on the list.
  2. This is probably the best depiction here. "Tactical", most often than not, is a configuration that adds stuff like rails, furniture, sights that are more mil-spec/LE oriented, giving you more configuration options as a result for different types of work. Improved hardware/furniture comes at an increased cost. Benelli M4 Standard 👇 Benelli M4 Tactical 👇
  3. I'm sure there are people trailing just behind you who didn't yet managed to qualify for being an airsoft vet. 😎
  4. Hey guys, so it looks like the critical mass has been reached. I've now received 111 responses from you all. Thank you! I promised some data snippets, so here they are, enjoy! I'm still yet to compile and collate all this data, so might take me some time to get into deeper insights and patterns.
  5. Guys, thank you so much. The survey is still ongoing (I might keep it for a week before closing), and the community backing has been way better than I anticipated. So far, I've gotten 90 responses and I expected maybe 10–15, so more data points to analyse, it's awesome. If there's anyone who hasn't done the survey, please get on it; it only takes about 5 minutes, so it's short and sweet. Bear in mind the survey is aimed at regular players.
  6. True they were expensive, but I don't think I've paid that much; definitely close to £200 for a full set (helmet + headset). It's been really good and comfortable for extended periods of time. The downside is that I need scope risers for all my rifles! 😅
  7. Oh, believe me mate; at the same festival I bought my WARQ helmet with full face protection and I only wear tac-glasses with a facemask from then on. Doesn't justify shooting me in the face, when he had my whole body at his disposal. Could've shot me anywhere, including my boonie hat, that I had on at the time. I was in a combination of shock, disbelief and nerve pain, so by the time I realised what happened that dude was gone without a word. Disgraceful little $%^&. If you make any mistake, own it, own its consequences. You hurt someone — you apologise and make amends.
  8. I started looking to gather a bit more info about how people organise themselves, plan and attend aisoft events in general. I'm trying to make playairsoft.uk a much better source of up-to-date information in the long term, as the response has been really positive in the last month! I'd like to ask members of this forum, could you spare a 5 minutes of your precious time and answer a few questions? Airsoft Player Survey → (Google Form) Survey is 100% anonymous, and the results will be published online (this forum and Twitter) for everyone to benefit from the f
  9. The worst one for me was when I lost part of my front tooth. At NAF2018, during a skirmish in the forest, together with my mate I was suppressing a sniper, laying down some fire from a prone position across the road. Since he was too close to target us with his sniper rifle, he pulled out a handgun and rushed from across the road, ignoring a bunch of BBs hitting him along the way from my own rifle, as well as my mate's. Because why would you want to call "HIT!" when you get hit several times from automatic fire, right? So, he went across the road to our position and ope
  10. @ak2m4 I did think about it, and it's something to launch when there is enough demand for self-managing airsoft sites. Right not, the site has barely any traffic (~500 visits weekly) because it's fresh, so I'm focusing on airsoft players more than on site owners, as content moderation is often a one-off (do it once and it's done). It all depends on the traction and how helpful something is vs returns it brings to the community. It's hard and time consuming to build content management tools, so I'm deferring that until I am sure a lot of players are relying on PlayAirsoft to discove
  11. True, a lot of it comes down to availability, which is a topic in and of itself. It actually shines light on our perception of what's available and what's not. G&G I know that SIG55x-series isn't being retailed, and I reckon its because it also hasn't been manufactured anymore. I also own 553, so I can relate to the pains of hunting down mags, especially the low-cap ones (for some reason I like changing mags on my SG553 quite frequently). Some halo guns, like the PDR-C, have come and gone in very limited quantities and PTS Syndicate definitely doesn't make them anym
  12. From mine and my mate's experience with UKARA renewals, it's all up to the club/site you register with. At the one we're registered, you can set up automatic renewal each year as long as you're a member. You still have to get your first three games with them initially, but as long as you've been previously registered, they should renew it for you at their discretion. Also, unless the rules have recently changed UKARA is a valid defence from purchasing RIFs from retailers, not owning or playing with them. If you already own a RIF, you don't technically need UKARA. That s
  13. I'm not an expert on this, and this may be out of date info, so please someone correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't we permitted only to discharge RIFs outdoors within a mile from residential areas? Like I said, I may be wrong and I don't have a citation to hand to confirm this, so if anyone can clarify, please do. I have set up a simple target practice in my garage, using bell targets and for simple pistol shooting drills is perfectly fine, doesn't endanger anyone but me. I'm shooting all three of my pistols (all gassed, two GBB) and sometime rifle when I'm practicing transitions.
  14. I'm looking to provide the community with some reporting tools, but for now everything is static, so if you find anything that is incorrect, feel free to email me at [email protected] I'll be happy to make amends. In fact, I've done so just today, as Anzio Camp's GPS coordinated were a bit off. I'd appreciate if mods would consider sticking this in a relevant place, as it provides people with helpful and accurate information about places to play in the UK.
  15. The map is in the works, and I started scraping some of the data from AirsoftRanch as well, but lots of this data leads to nowhere, so it's a slow process. For example, yesterday it took me about an hour to find all the info I needed for 3 sites from a single organiser. As for the roadmap, I can share a little bit: More filtering options Countrywide map of airsoft sites to browse and pan around Support for location services to show what's near you Grading system to establish "recommended" sites
