Ok, it can be a bit tricky to find a site if you don't know where to look.

Use that as a start for google fu'ing a nearby site for you.

My advice when you go to your first skirmish, ask questions as most people (bar the a*s holes) will be very happy to answer any you have. Get a look and a feel of as many guns as possible, if you enjoy the hobby there is a good chance you will want a gun or 2 (or in my case 10) of your own, and the more guns you get a hands on look at all sorts of different guns and know what you liek and what you dont.

One last thing a really big don't for a newbi.
DON'T think you know better than other people, yes you may but if they have been softing for a while there is a good chance they will have a pretty good idea what they should be doing (it really hacks me off when a rental starts to tell me I am doing it wrong).

Now on a posative note, most people you meet at a skirmish will be very firendly (if a little rough around the edges) and will be more than happy to help you in most ways.

Hope that has helped.

Depends on the site, my local has a choice of M4's, AK47's, MC51's MP5's and FAMAS's. Alot of sites will also offer G36C's too.

I would place money on 90% of sites having G36C's. they are accuracte, cheap and robust, so they are perfect for rentals. (plus spare bits are easy to find :D)

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.
