Places to Rent Equipment? (ON)

Hello everyone, I'm really new to airsoft and as such I don't have any equipment. Before buying I'm hoping to go out to a few games and rent to get a feel for what I like. The problem is I have no idea what fields in the Ontario region - if any - offer rentals. Most that I've seen are paintball fields to begin with, so I'm not sure if they'd even have anything. Any info would be appreciated, I'm really excited to get out there!

Also, as a side note, quite a few links under "community" are no longer related to airsoft. Anyone know what's going on with that?

Thanks again

games in ontario posted there on a regular basis.
post in a game that interests you asking if you can attend and if anybody would be willing to lend/rent you some equipment/gun.

most people are willing to lend out guns, but few people lend out gear...

So essentially I need my own goggles etc., but can usually rent/borrow guns. On that note, what is the minimum gear required? Just eye protection, or would it normally change from game to game (or field to field)?

depends on the game actually. sometimes you need a certain color bdu

but if you're able to jump into a "just for fun" game its usually gun+goggles and entry.

I know sgt splatters usually hosts those types of games... but you'd have to check with the game host.

Paintball goggles will get you through most games

You NEED to wear boots when playing. Most hosts have it specified in the rules.

A few dollars spent on footwear can save you a bunch of money and pain if anything happens.

Sorry, can someone slap me in the face? I am almost CERTAIN I am dreaming... Someone starting out who wants to Rent/Game BEFORE buying all the gear? WOW!

Someone who has COMMON SENSE!

Nuff Said.

Is there someone I can get in touch with concerning TTAC3 (to find out who verifies, renting/borrowing AEGs, etc.)? Is it always airsoft on fridays? I'm super excited now
