Saying hi in Edinburgh

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

been lurking for a couple of weeks now

 

got my first game tomorrow at Edinburgh Skirmish walk on and looking forward to it

played paintball since I was 17 ( so that’s 28 years) but had a break for a good while

 

really excited as going along with an old friend who is well established in the hobby, and I know the inevitable will happen (this is going to cost me £thousands 🤫)

 

so , first post , be gentle with me , hi!! 👋

Ahoy and welcome.  I'll be a refugee from Nomad soon so if you happen to play at Section 8 or the Scottish Airsoft Centre, reviews would be appreciated.

Not necessarily.  I've only spent... [sound of calculator keys] ...

Welcome to the forum.

 

There is a thread on what airsoft costs....

 

But yeah, loads 😅

I've met a few ex paintballers who moved to airsoft.

 

Feels good being a real man doesn't it?

I'm off to S8 on Sunday @Rogerborg, I'll get a review up on the Recommended sites in Scotland thread early next week.

 

@Enid_Puceflange Welcome to the forums and Airsoft! Great choice on the Krytac, it should serve you well.

Neat, thanks.  I'm particularly interested in how the games are run and how much time is spent slogging across the site as opposed to pewing.

Welcome! Glad you enjoyed it! 

 

I'd like some reviews of Section 8 too, so far the ones I've heard have been rather mixed.

Why is it, as soon as you have a new toy you start to look for another

Looking for a suitable sidearm now...…………..

Corner shop toy one, for all that you'll ever actually use it. ;)

I can see why speedsofters use pistols for point blank pewing, but even in an indoors CQB site I rarely switch to mine.  It is a laugh though, and a good way to end a long day to just ditch everything and throw some mags in your pocket.

The negative Google ones point out that it's a big site with not a lot of structures, which I'm not keen on, but then there's one complaining that they got ejected for not calling a hit from a test shot, and for cheat calling.  It's actually rather heartening to hear that's being enforced in practice, I'd count that as a positive.

For what it's worth, I find myself using my pistols a lot more when I take my longer aeg out. I tend to "abandon" the aeg when I'm going into tight places (narrow corridors, stair well etc. ) Pistols are just so much easier to manage in confined spaces. 

 

However if I'm using the wasp, it's tiny anyways so no real advantage to swapping.

Sounds like I just need a decent GBB / £80-£100 😉

Look at some of WEs offerings, their Sigs and Glocks are quite nice. No need to go overboard because as mentioned you tend to only use a sidearm if you set out to try and use it if that makes sense.

 

That said you may use it, love it and end up just using that haha
