Back to airsoft after 5 years of absence

Recommended Posts

Hello to airsofters across the UK! I recently made up my mind to play some airsoft again, after my last match back in 2011. I would have to get myself aquainted to the regulations around here, because where i come from the law isn't exactly specific about airsoft, so everybody was kind of "freestyling". I understand I would have to get registered with UKARA and some other things, but first i have to decide upon a replica. I think it'll be between an e&l aks74u or a TM mp5sd6 (more research needed). I'm also looking for people to play with, so if there's anybody from London just give me a shout! I prefer open-space games, like woodland or something similar, I'm not really into cqb. The replicas i mentioned earlier will be modified for accuracy and (maybe) power, so if anybody has any advice about that, you're welcome!

Recommend checking out Bush Valley in Maidstone mate awesome site and great bunch of guys and girls. Need to play 3 games at an approved site before you can complete a form and go on the register.

Hi

 

Yeah their website isnt looked after and as you say hasn't been updated since Jan 2015, their Facebook page is where it's at. They play every 2 and 4th Sunday of every month (though they are not playing on 27-04-16 as its Easter Sunday).

 

Its a family run business between Ray and his wife Jean who regularly keeps plays updated on the Facebook group and it has a loyal player base.

 

Entrance can be a bit tricky as its not sign posted, just get on Ongar Road and follow the signs for the Secret Nuclear Bunker, here's a Google link for Street view so you know what the entrance looks like as of Nov 2014.

Its one of the very few Airsoft sites that you want need a 4x4 to get to as the road leading to it is all decently paved and tarmac'd, lots of good parking though if your a bit late it might be a bit of a walk but not much, safe zone is pretty much all sheltered bar one table (which nobody ever uses) with plenty of tables, shelves, hooks to hang your stuff from and seating. Toilets are a bit of a miss, its a porta cabin with essentially a toilet seat on a bucket, there is sometimes an on site tech, Jean and Ray sell a variety of chocolates, drinks, run the charging station and deal with UKARA forms, other family and friends are marshals (and pretty good ones).

 

If you need supplies and stuff AirsoftZone: http://airsoftzone.co.uk/ has an on site shop often staffed by 2 people, they accept cash and card, best of all is the on site cook who makes awesome burgers, pulled pork buns etc.

 

They are pretty good on safety and every gun is chrono'd at the start of the day using their own mags pre loaded with .2g BBs to ensure no one cheat the chrono, they also tourny lock any P* systems.

 

I like the site becuase it was the first one i played at, also because i find the staff very approachable and welcoming
