New blood in London

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I recently moved to London from Serbia, and am currently looking for a team or place where I can pop in, have some fun, and get my blood pumping.

I used to play Airsoft back home, but the scene there is....underwhelming to say the least. Living in a fairly remote area didn't help either, so getting to games was pretty hard for someone without a team or like minded people around. But I digress.
A quick Google search gives me a few options, but its hard to pick the best (and cheapest) one, and I don't really have anyone who could show me around or give me advice on this matter - Thus I registered here.

So here goes:

Are there any airsoft teams in London that would accept newbies, and be willing to lend a hand in acquiring all the necessary gear, and getting me into a few training sessions?
I don't really have the funds to blow on brand new AS gear, or going to games all by myself all the time.

Also, I am already aware of the law and purchasing hoops one has to go trough to get a replica in the UK. Seems reasonable enough, and I don't mind renting equipment until I can qualify as a buyer, but I am not sure if this applies to buying second hand replicas - I actually prefer second hand stuff, as I enjoy tinkering with things, and customizing them.

As for me being a foreigner, I know some people would be worried about my English, or cultural differences that could affect teamplay - no need to be worried. The Yanks I worked with before made sure that I speak and understand the language perfectly, that also made me pick up their accent. Incidentally, some of those people whom I played a lot of Project Reality with also made sure that I know all their crappy marine/army jokes. Bunch of homos.

Bottom line is, a new friendly and somewhat experienced player is looking for a team in London to help him get around and have some fun.

Any advice or information is more than welcome.

Cheers all!

Also, as an added bonus, my previous weapon - a heavily customised Cybergun Full Metal m4. I miss this thing so much.

Heya,

Thanks for the welcome! I am currently in south-west London, Putney to be more precise.

So you guys play every week? That's cool. My work schedule allows me 1 free Wednesday every 2 weeks, and this week I have a shift, so I can't really come. Would love to visit next week if possible tho. I'm assuming this is the place? Quite far, but will see if I can make it. Will deff keep in touch!
