Welcome to forum / UK

 

age ?

location - North - South London

presume if 18+ you are gonna get ukara to obtain your own rif

experience - airsoft/paintball/ or other stuff like this

 

Anyway.... many on here have a laid back or fun approach to airsoft

though there are a few who play more seriously/regular even mil sim games etc....

 

You don't HAVE to have a team as such, many just turn up and either on their own mostly

or with a m8 or two - but in any case you turn up on ya own see a few regulars, banter with players & the one or two laid back marshal etc...

 

Depends on your approach - yes it can be extremely competitive for the more hardened serious player

Or it could be a load of blokes young & old running around the woods with toy guns falling ar$e over tit etc...

But in general - just a bit of fun leaving our ego's at home and letting off some steam peew peew poww

 

Me - I run a clan of out of shape over the hill saddo's who suck at this and don't really give a toss how many times I get shot to hell

Gonna get some patches made up soon:

 

The CRAP Clan....

 

Crappy

Really

Aged

Players

 

Yeah - we are bad - really bad at this, but wtf we are too old to care

 

Membership is really restricted - I am the only one but we are growing - nearly got another player once

but his wife wouldn't let him out no more - mine keeps telling to get out more

 

Soz - silly posting, gis a bit more info and maybe some of the others might be able to point you to a local site to find ya feet a bit more

age - 20

location - South Eastern London

experience - Airsoft, shooting license, reenactment

Im looking for nice serious people - i don't like just shoot and lay down and drink beer. Im into milsims and training :)
Im little confused about that UKARA stuff - as i read about it i need to take 3 games in 2 month in registered game site, is that correct?

you south east london and serious etc....

 

consider going along to sandpit dartford

rent gun for 3 games in 2 months to obtain your ukara through the site

 

sandpitt don't allow 2-tone or clear aeg's - RIF's only

so that site should do you ok

obtain ukara - buy RIF or rather first of possible others....

meet new people of all ages, backgrounds etc and shoot them - in a friendly fair playing airsoft way

 

There are also a few mil sim places on MoD sites in Kent one or two players on here go to

 

Also Russell on here does reenactment too - think WW2 Aussie atm with an impressive custom built mofo replica

 

See we got all sorts on here

m8 - if you get next to nothing and on a budget some old army surplus stuff on ebay will suffice

 

Sandpitt is a little more than other sites but is more serious side of things

 

Read up Ian's guide to noobism on a budget - not calling ya a noob

but contains a goldmine of info for starting or restarting out in your case

it's in the sticky section new player guides

 

http://www.airsoft-forums.co.uk/index.php/topic/17294-ians-guide-to-noobism-on-a-tight-budget/

 

it contains a lot - no a LOT of sound practical info & wisdom that many including me wish they had read first when starting out

you can get by with very little - bit of old surplus, decent eye-pro, half decent boots with ankle support etc....

 

all the mofo loadout can come when you get near to buying ya first rif

by then you may decide on a particular loadout after speaking to others at site and try a few guns you like the look of

 

get ya first game in asap - sooner you start the sooner you can get sorted and blow all ya money

UCAP is not UKARA registered. You can get membership with them, £12 a year, and once you have your membership number send your UKARA paperwork to UCAP to get it stamped. Then send the completed UKARA paperwork off to a registered shop to be placed onto the database. The UCAP membership is your valid defence.

F*CK ME - I stand corrected

so sorry - thought that must be UKARA site

but as Jedi said you can still be placed on database

plus tbh - when buying a RIF the dealer/retailer just needs to ring site to confirm you are now a regular skirmisher 18+

well my site (though ukara site) was dragging its heels processing my ukara so they kept getting calls from LWA & Pro Airsoft

Think in the end they got fed up and got my entry sorted - guy at PA said my site's shop sounded a bit grumpy....

Nope that could be the owner in one of his good moods tbh...

 

Entry onto the ukara database is what I think most sites & retailers refer to as it is an easy way to check

plus it kind of keeps the looney politicians that wish to ban our toy guns - sort of happy (though not all the time)

Don't forget werem coz ur down south u have to use softer bbs. 😂😂

Yeah but to honest the only reason Northerners use harder bbs is because they are too stupid to notice normal ones.

Its like poking a dinosaur with a stick its too big and dumb to register.
