Hello From a Northumbrian Based New Boy!

Postby RobboH » Mon Jan 05, 2015 8:52 pm

Hello!
Names Robson, usually Robbo and I thought I'd give this WW2 airsofting a go. Not totally new to airsofting though still finding my way about like, so go easy on us and any pointers thrown in this general direction will be gratefully accepted! :D

Hello and welcome
After you choose a faction then for a first impression always go for infantry ,its tempting to go for the super cool airborne hero gear but it will limit what games you can use it at ,once you have the basic infantry kit its usually only minor changes to alter it to more exotic unit's .
Always ask here before you buy ,there's plenty of ways to waist you're money so a little advice and you save yourself making mistakes and this is a friendly forum with ton's of well informed people who'l be happy to help .
Don't wait till you have everything before you book on a game ,nearly all games have a kit loan thread and people are happy to lend kit and weapons on a you bend it you mend it basis so get stuck in !

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.
i'll kill a man in a fair fight or if i think he's going to start a fair fight or over a woman or.......
a problem shared is a problem halved ,but an advantage shared is no advantage at all
if a job's not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well

Step 1... Choose a game advertised on here.

Step 2... Book on.

Step 3... Ask about borrowing kit; we were new once and wherever possible we'll loan it out.

Step 4... Come to game, love it, become addicted and dive head first into the financial black hole that is WW2 Airsoft. ;)

Just jump in mate. Most welcoming, friendly hobby I've ever been involved in and a lot of fun to boot.

Cheers guys!
Dadio, the faction isn't a hard choice, English through and through! Sounds like I need to get sorted with a game, hopefully see some of you about...
