New and wanting advice

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I'm really new to air soft (as in ice watched it on YouTube quite a bit and like the look of it).

 

I'm 23 from Tarleton, Lancashire.

 

Does anyone have any advice for me? What equipment do I need to buy rather than borrow when I'm there first time? Where should I go first time?

 

All and any advice is welcome :)

 

Thanks in advance

Welcome to the forums.

 

Google is your friend.

 

All the new questions have answers on this forum.

 

Play a game first before you decide to purchase anything to see if the sport truly is for you.

 

Happy airsofting!

Just do it, the sooner you go the sooner you can start playing. Many of us started out solo but make that initial effort and it is worth it. Most airsofters are friendly and will talk to you and show you the ropes and talk about the game. Do not be intimitadated by their guns and kit just talk to them, we all started out as new players. One key point - take your hits, regardless. And have fun.

welcome,

as jedi said, just do it, dont be afraid, i was for years (and other commitments as well) now I'm thinking of selling my children to fund a new gun!!....

 

as for what you need, boots / walking shoes is a must, check with the site you go to, other than that you'll get provided with stuff, but for my first game I also got some mesh googles and a face mask

I was solo first time. I rang and spoke to the site owner before. Asked a couple of noob questions and then went that weekend so he remember speaking to me. Set me up then introduced me to a couple of regulars who helped me out all day. Now I play every week.
