Newbie looking for some advice

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I am looking at getting back into airsoft. Well I say back but all that means is I did it a few times when I was younger. Nothing serious and only with rentals. However I now like the idea of taking it up regularly.

I have a few questions I was hoping you seasoned vets could help me out with

 

1) I live in Brighton. Does anyone know any good sites near me?

2) is it a bit weird that I would do this on my own? Is it normally groups of people who do it or would I be ok turning up on my own?

3) what is the average age of people who do this? I'm 30

4) in terms of getting my own gun I presume it's best to go to a few sessions and try out rentals? However other than a gun what else do I need to buy to get started?

5) is there anything I should know before getting involved. I'm pretty excited about starting it up and I'm the sort of idiot who goes head first in everything I try so I'm trying my best to not go a splash a load of money on a new gun.

 

 

Anyway thanks for reading and thanks in advance for your responses.

Hi all,

 

I am looking at getting back into airsoft. Well I say back but all that means is I did it a few times when I was younger. Nothing serious and only with rentals. However I now like the idea of taking it up regularly.

I have a few questions I was hoping you seasoned vets could help me out with

 

1) I live in Brighton. Does anyone know any good sites near me? DOGTAG Airsoft nr Crawley isn't too far, although I guess Worthing is closer.

2) is it a bit weird that I would do this on my own? Is it normally groups of people who do it or would I be ok turning up on my own? Nope, lots turn up by themselves to all the sites I've played at :-)

3) what is the average age of people who do this? I'm 30 I'm 40+ as are most of my mates so 30.... you is only a mouse on a wheel! :D

4) in terms of getting my own gun I presume it's best to go to a few sessions and try out rentals? However other than a gun what else do I need to buy to get started? You can't buy your own gun unless you want a crappy 2tone paint job... need to wait a while before you'll be able to buy your own.

5) is there anything I should know before getting involved. I'm pretty excited about starting it up and I'm the sort of idiot who goes head first in everything I try so I'm trying my best to not go a splash a load of money on a new gun. All the while you are renting, not much as the site will supply all you really need. I suggest a good set of boots though.

 

 

Anyway thanks for reading and thanks in advance for your responses.
