Look in the Teams sections of the forum to start to meet folks. Events are divided by province. Same for places to play.
I'm not talking about just the gun, but also the rest of the stuff; military gear, clothes, etc. That can, and will, give you the kind of attention you really dont need.
So someone local would have to keep pretty much everything for you, or you arrange to live off-residence, off-campus.
You might need access to a car. Most of the playing areas are rarely where public transportation is available.
