    Edugeek Airsofters

    Does anyone else do this? I recently went for the first time in years since I gave it up as a student and had a great time.

    Never tried it, though I would love to.

    Just have to settle with my NERF Maverick (awaiting modifcations )

    I haven't been for a while - but I do have quite a sizeable armoury and am looking to get back into the firefight once time allows...

    Anyone else from the midlands???

    To be honest - I kinda agree with the VCRA, in so far as it make it harder for oiks to get a hold of replica kit, sadly it does mean that us airsofters have to prove what we are to be able to buy gats.

    All too many times I see stalls selling gats though - usually with a small number of teenage lads around them attempting to look 'ard . Thing is - you know they're selling them illegally and reporting them seems to go nowhere (note: I don't want to turn this into a police bashing thread - they do a great many things that I could never do, and they're too constrained by having to meet targets to have the time to easily deal with 'small' matters like this).

    I've been part of a little bit of fun we had with paintballers, we borrowed paintball kit and went against them for a couple of games (in most cases without armour)....

    Then we switched it around and they borrowed some gats and went against us.

    Guess who screamed more

    I'll be honest, I've never played airsoft, but the idea of running round with armor on defeats the point for me!

    Gat - as in the small air guns that fire darts and .177 pellets?

    For clarification - It was the paintballers we went up against that wear the armour.

    and sorry, I'm just so used to using gat as a catch-all term to define aegs and air weapons.

    Two layers of clothes, full face mask and a tac vest do me. You feel the BB's through that, still have a red mark on my leg from Saturday.

    I wouldn't wear just shooting glasses though if you want to keep your teeth...

    Erm... I'm guilty of this, just one layer of clothing, tac vest and ballistic glasses

    Can't remember the number of times I've spat a bb out - and yes, I do generally keep my mouth closed.



    And remember: when we have struck Mr. Grenade - he is not our friend. (I've seen a lad have one accidentally strike in his pocket - I have never before seen someone remove their trousers so quickly!)
