Hey everyone. As per title really. Due to financial times being a bit dodgy I had to move from tournament paintball to scenario. And now I am contemplating airsoft as a cheaper alternative to tide me over between expensive paintball jaunts. I am not finding airsoft as accessible to paintball however. I have no idea where to start. First thing is first I need to get registered. Can anyone advise me how to do this and then once that is done we can move onto the favorite noobie question "which gun".

Find a gun to fit your budget! your looking at around 100 minimum just reply in this thread once you have found a gun you like the look of ! there is and never will be a perfect gun.

You can use sites that airsoft world, Zeroin, Firesupport, Landwarriorairsoft, Wolf armouries, Actionhobbies or many others.

the bad news is that you will have to play 3 games in no less than 2 months to get registered,

The good news is that i remember there being a few sites near Plymouth! and you can rent the weapons so you dont need to worry about getting a 2 tone.

Have a gander here for your local sites.

Exactly what I needed sir. Thankyou. Quick question can the three games be played at different sites?

No, also a quick correction/typo fix, it's three games in no less than 2 months, i.e. 1 a month for three months if you want to do it as cheaply as possible.

Ok so what if i get membership with southwestwargames who run games on 2 sites? This would still count as I would be a member of the one company?

Think you would be better off asking them :) it would have to be the same person signing it so he would have to be up and down.

but that's what's used AFTER you've played your 3 games, you still need to prove the 3 games

Every site should have a register, (in fact I think its mandatory) Thats all the proof you need imho but if you want to use that sheet go for it.
