Been fun while it lasted..

Recommended Posts

So just had the news that my local and only cqb site  is only organising  one last game. Then there going concentrate  on milsim games. (Fair enough  if that what they want to do) but I'm not a a massive  fan of milsim for various reasons  cost, traveling  distance  everyone elses £400 Plus  gun out  ranges my cheap cm16 (due to upgrade to a mp7 from.decemver) 

 

With no other site local to me  that offer the cqb  that I like (room clearing with bags torches  etc etc) I think I'll be leaving the sport  in a few weeks but  hey at least I'll have more money less bruising and  less packages to hide from the Mrs.

I'm guessing that's SEO Airsoft your referring to Shaun ?

they got slated recently after one of their milsims, is the cqb closure down to that or have they lost the venue ?

You never truly leave the game, you might take a break, but the itch will always be there (I'm back after about 12 years away). Just like Hotel California, you can check out but you will never leave.

It seems like the focus is shifting towards milsims, it kinda sucks because it's only a niche part of the whole airsoft world..

 

If I were you I wouldn't worry about your gun's range too much, the difference is unnoticeable unless you're talking 150 fps difference :P and you can get the same range with only a few, quite inexpensive upgrades (literally a spring and a flat hop)

My cheapo cyma is still able to keep me competitive and playing against people with much, much better guns. Its more with how you play so don't worry about you cm16. Quex do a night ops game once a month so plenty of opportunity to use your torch or flash bangs.

There's plenty of other decent sites in Kent, where exactly are you based and what are your travel arrangements?

 I know those other sites redone invicta  apoc and all that but I just don't wanna travel that far.   But Quex is much closer and it would  get me out once every few months I guess and they have there cqb sort of area.. But  Only really enjoy room clearing and that  which im not sure what there other site offer when it come it that.

As above, if your only getting out once every month or so why not go somewhere you know will be fun and fit your needs and plan ahead :)

Arse end of the country?? I will have you know we're very up and coming area thank you. Margate its self now boasts a thriving colony of  oddly dressed hipsters. It contrasts nicely with chavs but they lived there already!

Some of my wife's family live down that way. Are you sure they're actual hipsters not just lost French tourists?

Well there are a lot of stripey shirts and berets around but I've not seen any stings of onions.

The only place I can think would be the mall. 

There is a place in Dover triple a airsoft or something  that might be what I want it worth a look before selling up?

Out of curiosity have they given any reason why they're stopping?  It can't just be about that 1 game surely?
