Default Does anybody do AIRSOFT?

Hi, I was wondering how many people on the forum play airsoft?
I've been thinking about selling one of my M4's and where to sell it (Forums mainly) but then i startied thinking are the two hobbies related?
I personally think they work hand in hand for good olde stress releif

I airsoft, brilliant fun! M4 is a good bet! especially with Hi cap mags! Make sure you buy a spare battery too and a sidearm! The amount of times the spring unwinds on high cap mags a easy to grab sidearm can really save your ass!

My weapons include:
Spring powered L96 Arctic Warfare Sniper Rifle
Electric powered M4CQBSD with Crane Stock - brilliant little piece of equipment
Electric powered AK74 with fold stock

Gas powered Glock 18/19 (cant remember) with semi and auto fire.
Gas powered M9 Berretta

My only suggestion is to get your UKARA license before buying weapons, saves ALOT of hasstle! Oh and extra mags are a god send!

I used to do airsoft, until it became harder to buy a rifle firing plastic BB's than it is to buy an AK-47

In America we can have real guns to play with
So as a result, I collected airsoft weapons maily when I was younger and didn;t have much disposable income.

If you're interested in a very realistic springer Beretta M9/92F, UHC makes a really good one, easily as realistic as a Tokyo Marui for about $20. It's got good heft to it, and it actually disassembles/strips just like the real thing.

As a Stargate fan I also have an electric P90, though it's kinda lowgrade and doesn't feed properly if pointed down at all.

I've also got a couple of electric walther p99s because they were cheap and cool.

Never really went out into the wodos and did the combat thing.Mainly my brother and I would just shoto the shit out of one another. Then we both got into real guns and started going to the range instead.

Nah, I just run around Detroit willynilly with my AK-47...

NoiseMarine are vigilante.

But honestly, if I'm going to shoot someone with a toy it's probably going to be a paintball gun. Other than that I go to the range baby!

There was a disused military base behind my parents house (it's got car showrooms on now ) and we use to hop the fence up there and have the most amazing airsoft battles. never ran any rules, just shot at each other till we got bored. Great fun though.

My mates dad used to run a site as well, but unfortunately i never got the chance to play before he sold it.

I still have my pistols packed away somewhere.

Yah, I've been to a handful of games. As I understand it, airsoft is a hell of a lot easier to get into over here than in the UK...no license required, replicas don't need to have ridiculous dayglo colors, that sort of thing

I currently run an Echo 1/Vector Arms AK-74 carbine. All black, folding metal stock. It's a solid freakin' replica for the price. Currently looking into a Classic Army Armalite just for kicks.

Ummm...high cap? Hell no. I used one in my first game. By the second, I sprung for a box of mid caps, and there's no way I'm going back. Much simple to switch mags rather than crank on the high cap for a minute

@ the OP: Out of curiosity, what brand M4 are you selling? I'm almost certainly not interested (as everyone over here runs a bloody M4), but, y'know, curious

Its Star/Ares (same thing now). moved to them from mauri after getting a UMP. The only gun i'm interested in getting now is a SCAR L or H. Not to worryed about a UGL. its just such a beautiful gun.
