Newbie to Airsoft

Recommended Posts

I've just joined the forum and am aiming at starting to play airsoft. My nearest skirmish place is Apocalypse249, which I'm gonna be going down there on the 5th just to check it out! I was wondering what would be a reasonably cheap but good gun to get!? And obviously any other hints and tips would be welcome!!

 

So basically, hi!!

Play a few games first and try out different hire guns to too what you like the most, but still the gun we recommend to all new starters is a G&G Combat Machine.

Hi Chris

 

We've all been where you are now.

 

As already said, dont rush into buying your own rifle. Your tastes and wants will change over your first few games.

There are some very good noobie guides on this forum which answer a lot of the common FAQs.

 

Of course, there is no harm in spending hours looking at the rifles for sale on the net !!

I'm hoping to maybe have a look at some of the guys guns when we go up just to see what feels better! But yes, will be hiring at first and sign up to Ukara so i can get a realistic rifle.

Theres no harm in investing in some army surplus gear and face protection early on though. The full face masks at most sites are not the best.

http://www.britishmilitarysurplus.co.uk/ishop/1069/shopscr26.html the £25 deal for smock, shirt and trousers in either DPM or Desert DPM is an awesome starting point for your outfit. They also have some good deals on boots.

No, people are usually only too pleased to have the opportunity to go on at length about their guns and show 'em off to people who haven't seen them before.
