New to airsoft!

Recommended Posts

Hey my names Toby and i'm from leeds.I'm new to airsoft never having played before but have done paintball in the past. I just recently bought an ASG Mk 23 socom pistol for use in CQC till I can get my UKARA license so I don't have to get a two tone rifle. Looking forward to hearing some great advice from experience players.

Welcome to the forums dude :)

 

First off- UKARA is a defence. You might think 'what's the difference?' trust me, there is a large one.

If people are encouraged to think of it as a license then airsoft will seem much more exclusive and people will think that the hobby is controlled like gun licensing is.

 

Otherwise welcome to the hobby, please leave your wallet at the door :D

No problem. Have you started to consider which type of rifle you'll be after when you get the defence?

Good choice of pistol. The ASG/HFC Mk23 socom is a very effective gun and tends to be very cheap to get.

Now you need to start reading the guides, particularly this one: http://www.airsoft-forums.co.uk/index.php/topic/17294-ians-guide-to-noobism-on-a-tight-budget/

Then you get to spend 2 months drooling over different guns :)

 

I recommend looking at http://www.britishmilitarysurplus.co.uk/shopscr26.html where you will find great deals on camo clothing, boots etc.

I've been looking for about a week so far and the G & G combat machine CM16 raider looks good. I have a budget of about £200 for the rifle and then same again for equipment. What would you recommend?

I'd say any of the G & G range, if your only in Leeds you could take a trip to patrol base in Huddersfield, I've had nothing but good service everytime I've been in!
