Can you please tell me which of the guns are metal

Feel free to suggest if these are unreliable or if any of you have any

Mask

I was hoping to find some help sellecting a mask I am U18 so I have to wear a full face mask

http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B0020R399A/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

Was looking at this but it looks as if it will fog

I'm not sure if the on I saw on this site rental I thought it looked good

http://www.airsoft-mansfield.co.uk/equipment/

Please suggest some more full face mask this is something I do not want to cheap out on as I only have 1 set of eyes and teeth :)

Clothing

I I am going to get some camo pants and jacket and with space to put 2 mags aim not quite big enough for mens as they are slightly baggy and it very hard to find children's size 13

Also is this necessary or should I just put on some old jeans and jacket

I would also want some to cover the back of my head and neck as I have heard that hurts a lot :D

Boots

Would like a cheap pair can you recommend any

Gloves

An average pair again can you recommend any

Thanks for all of your help

These are some pretty nice boots http://www.sportsdirect.com/stormlite-cliff-high-walking-boots-mens-189053?colcode=18905305

I only used them indoors when i first started but they seem like they could hold up in woodland/urban.

these are the ones i bought for airsoft. worn them once and had no issues at all although they will need breaking in which i will be doing over the next few days. i bought insoles to put in them for extra comfort but they are optional

 

i would definately choose leather over swede for muddy skirmishes. i did buy magnums and they are a pain but the mud dried and literally fell off the dunlops without me having to touch them. i walked through mud and within 20 minutes they were clean

Go to your local Army & Navy store and buy some MTP or DMP surplus gear, Its normal around £18 a piece.

If you dont have one local you can buy them on Ebay for cheap, I suggest getting good leather boots if youre playing outdoors.

If youre under 18 remember you have to buy a two tone gun, personally i wouldnt buy a £250 gun thats has to be two tone because when you are 18 youll want to replace it.

All G&G guns are very good. The intermediate and advanced ones should be metal (if the real one is)

Personally I would recommend the Combat Machine that has a transparent receiver from Pro Airsoft Supplies. It's only £100 + £40 or so for batteries and a charger. It isn't metal but it's cheaper and lightweight.

 

Face mask should be good, they have thermal lenses which should help reduce fogging.

Which face mask are you talking about?

You could just, you know....buy a half face mesh mask and a pair of ESS ICE goggles or something. Much cooler, shouldn't fog up and I'd personally trust ESS more than paintball mask lenses

Im not 100% clued up on the laws, but some one selling a Realistic Looking Imitation firearm (R.I.F) to a person that does not obtain a UKARA licence Is in fact against the law and especially someone under 18. I have seen people under 18 with RIF's so im not sure of the rules 100%.

Nope. Only illegal if money, goods or services are exchanged for the RIF.

Gifting is legal providing the person who purchased the RIF had a UKARA defense (not a license, there is NO licensing system for RIFs)

Understood, it just seems a bit shady :)

The VCR Act doesn't cover (can't think of the word again when I need it) ownership! It's just import / manufacture / retail.

Gifting should be fine.

Thank you do you suggest anything for my neck or will that just mak me excessively hot

 

And would this be better still?

http://www.airsoft-mansfield.co.uk/equipment/

(The one the man is wearing)

 

I think you probably would get quite hot wearing something like a shemagh. Anything thinner like a neck gaiter and it won't protect your neck.

If you decide to use goggles and a half face mask instead then it would probably be better to use one.

 

They're on sale here + free shipping I think.

I'm not sure which mask that is, sorry.

As far as I know, if you're wearing lower face protection as well your eye pro then it counts as full face . My local site (indoor CQC) has a U18s must wear full face pro rule and I was allowed to use my mesh half face mask and goggles. It guess it could be different at Skirmish though.

I've done it. As long as you have both halves of your face covered then it's fine.

IMO single piece masks look stupid

They're the same. CQC = Close Quarter Combat, CQB = Close Quarter Battle
