    Well as the paintball thread turned into a bit of a war between the 2 and a couple of people have suggested that an airsoft thread should be started.

    use this to ask questions about gear, UKARA, game sites, good retailers and the like.

    I will try to answer any questions that i can as i know a fair bit but if i cant i am sure one of my fellow bit-tech'ers will be able to help.

    I currently use a G&P M4 special forces editon, with an ACOG red dot, rail mounted laser and a foregrip as its a very long and heavy RIF.

    and my current pistol of choice is a TM samuri edge beretta, i also have a BFG (blank firing grenade) for urban games which is my main source of gaming of late due to my local woodland site being closed down.

    I'm found using a combination of the following (Usually weekend Milsim games, or the Fire Support site):

    Hurricane M82A1: Systema Reinforced mechbox, torque up gearset+ Magnum Super Torque motor, ICS aluminium pistol, M120 spring, 7mm bearings, Bore-up cylinder+piston head. Madbull inner barrel. 80rd mag. 3-9x40 red/green mildot scope.

    Star AW338: Bolt action, gas, usually running green. Custom silencer, polished silver bolt rather than stock black. 3x15 bb strips MJ Hornet MkII

    M4(68): Custom build by yours truely. Barrett M468 (REC7) body, (G+P) Knights Armament long RIS/Silencer/Foregrip, G+P SOPMOD stock. Similar internals to the M82A1, but reinforced poly piston, no bore-up and the Speed version of the motor+gearset. STAR disposable 30rd mags only. Usually ten. Star Tri-rail scope

    King Arms FN FAL: Stock, apart from the 20mm rail accessory. 3x90rd mags. Red dot

    KSC USP's: Two, both with M733 muzzel breaks (To keep the thread from damage while I decide on a silencer). Both use green gas. one 15rd mag per pistol. Ironsights

    Gear: Viper SA assault vest, large pockets removed, rear water carrier removed, Umbrella patches (One on the front, large umbrella logo on the rear, along with a name tape), OD Modular belt, two large pouches (One contains spare BB's, one camelbak), two Viper thigh holsters. Hatch L10 gloves, fingerless, Hatch centurian kneepads+elbow pads. TruSpec digital night tigerstripe trousers, grey BDU shirt, generic black 'military' cap, Magnum Elite Spider 8's and Bolle clear goggles.

    Aye, sadly, it's about two hours drive away (In good traffic) from me, so we don't often get a chance to go there, but hey.

    I try to get to Close Action or Fireball Squadron when I can, but FBS sucks as a site, and the people there are thieving arseholes (Or, have been in the past).

    I really want to try this underground site that I saw, I think Biosniper linked it, because it looks insanely brilliant.

    Yay the thread is here :D

    I'll list off the mini armoury I guess:
    1x TM Famas
    1x TM Spetsnaz
    2x JG G36
    1x UTG Sniper
    1x AMG brand XM8
    1x KJW Glock 18C + Extended mag with hi-flow valves
    1x KJW Ruger Mk1 in silver, this is more of a show piece though

    Gear:
    2x set S95 woodland BDU's
    1x Woodland SAAV
    1x Woodland PLCE rig

    Currently though I mostly play CQB so I'm running dessie gear

    1x Osprey armour cover MK2 + pouches + admin panel
    1x MK6 helmet with Dessie cover - Ex-issue and heavy as, works well at our site though as the ceilings are low due to it being an old underground bunker.
    2x Pairs of Desert trousers
    1x Desert Saav, Ex-issue, the new type used in Iraq by some squaddies

    The stuff where there is more than one.. well that's because the missus comes to play too :D


    I currently play at UCAP
    It's a good site with strict 328fps limits, anything over and you are out the door :p

    Where does everybody buy their gear online? I was looking for some AEG accessories from Airsoft Armoury but they've reduced the number of stuff they carry.

    Another vote for Fire Support. I've dealt with them for pretty much everything airsoft I've bought for the last two or three years. They are absolutely top guys, run a top notch store, and go out of their way to get what you want. I've bought a number of things through them that aren't listed on their site - They'll happily order something if they order from that manufacturer specially for you, at no extra cost.

    I've bought from ZeroOne, and have no direct issues with their service or stock, but they've never felt as good as Fire Support.

    There is also 6mil, but they are usually VERY over priced, however, they do carry some good stock. Nothing that can't be had at Fire Support, though.

    Does anyone know what university policy usually is re: airsoft? They strictly forbid air weapons and replica weapons on campus (and I live on campus), but since it's a sport and the guns basically constitute sporting gear, do you imagine they'd make an exception? Because I know of a site about 1hr from me that I'd love to go to, but my gear is all hours away on the east coast, at home, where I was forced to leave it.

    I'm in lancaster, btw. I don't know if there's a ground closer to me, I haven't heard about one.

    well i hve my gear at uni. tho i know i could get in a spot of trouble for it if it was seen so i keep in in the boxes/cases and only take it to games etc and dont show it off like a muppet.

    Most places frown upon them as they see them as offensive but just keep them hidden and be ceraful with transport etc and there should be no problems.
