Few more things,
- Would an MP5 style AEG be something appropriate for her to start with?
- Vests that fit well for ladies? ( she is concerned about her breasts being protected )
- A field ladies frequent?
- She is a little concerned with it being a mostly male sport and standing out
- Her size is 5'9 110 pounds ( if that helps )
These are just concerns off the top of my head. If I could get some input from any girls here who play, or males who have taken their girlfriends into the adventure of airsoft.
ANY help would be appreciated, thanks ASC.
I just saw this post and I personally think that it's awesome that she wants to come out and play.
I definitely LOL'd about her concern for standing out amongst the guys. There's not much he can do about that as guys are definitely going to oggle a chick holding a gun :P
I think an mp5 might suit her well depending on her size and strength. She may want something bigger (but let's be honest, what woman doesn't always want something bigger).
