That is a very good question. What can I say about Airsoft? It's like being back in the RAF and running around playing silly beggars in your green playing out clothes.
It's such BIG business over here. They have all the kit - machine guns, sniper rifles, pistols, smoke grenades, radios, full tactical kit, rifle slings, webbing, camel backs, you name it they have it. And as they say - If they don't make it, you don't need it.
12 years and over, men, women, boys, girls. It's open to anyone.
First aid tents, medics etc and that's only pretend in case you're "shot" or "injured" during the game. There is obviously a proper first aid facility if needed.
The referees are out in force and anyone not "playing the game" properly is penalised. Three strikes and you're out. If you're hit and classed as shot or killed you have to walk back to the start, re-spawn, wait so long then rejoin the game.
The game area is set up with old buildings, old aircraft parts, wooden things that look like cotton reels, some kind of rocket/missile type thing and obviously a ton of trees. And it's all behind a protective fence.
or somewhere. They literally have all the kit. There is one older guy who must be retired military as he's called master Chief and has ALL the kit imaginable.
They must all be mad running around in 100 degrees. It's hot enough sat in the shade listening to the shouts of "Medic" and smelling the smoke grenades!!
But the Teenager is Lovin' it.
