Welcome to my first instrucable, as the title says, its about airsoft (wow amazing!).
This is how to start your airsofting hobby and what guns to buy ect.
Really, it's a list of guns that you can buy, this probably has more guns than any of the other instructables like it.
PLEASE NOTE: this is based around the UK so all the guns are two tone VCRA complient guns.
also, I'm not exactly an expert on this or anything, it's just about the backyard variety with the cheap guns reviewed. I also take no responsibility for the pictures and thank the sites I got them from.
Step 1: Getting started
Ok, so most of you probably know this but I'm still gonna put it here.
Airsoft is a game played by a group of people with high powered bb guns, whose aim is to eliminate their enemy by hitting them with a bb, the only problem with this is that that person who got hit, has to call HIT! and walk out of the area of play, so if you have mr. cheaty pants as your enemy and he doesn't call hit , then you don't know that he was hit or not. Really airsoft is honour based, so if you think you got shot, go out. because playing with cheaters is not fun.
People say you'll need a lot of equipment to play airsoft, and this is why most people are put off. In reality all you need is a few friends, a gun and a few extra magazines for it, and goggles. Maybe a bag to carry around your stuff too.(If your playing a long game, you might want a bottle of water and a few chocolate bars as well.)
All you need to wear is really just some casual clothing that you can afford to get a bit dirty, and mabye some kneepads if you want. you will also need a holster for you sidearm and a pouch of some sort for your extra mags.
