New to Airsoft

Hi All,

My name David and I'm 35yrs old. I'm ex british military now married to a lovely Canadian women and living in B.C. I'm currently in afghanistan private contracting and have decided to give airsoft a try as it seems my cup of tea.

I'll mostly be playing with NorthernStrike in Quesnel but may find myself visiting other locations. Any tips and pointers are welcomed. I do happen to have full BDU and equipment (the job). However any advise on my first AEG purchase and sidearm would come in handy. I'm currently looking at purchasing:

Bolt B4 SOPMOD & KJ M1911 A1 CO2 FM (however I believe due to research this is a bad choice).

I've only recently got in to the sport, but I've been wanting to get in to it for a long time. Money has been the thing holding me back (I'm really in to historical reenacting. With the Great War Centennial coming up, most of my "hobby skrilla" has been going to that). I'm from Victoria, BC and I'm hoping to hop in to some games soon. The load out I've been looking at putting together is to portray the RAF Regiment.

I`m just looking to get into airsoft now that I have some more free time. I spent the better part of a decade in the reserves, did a tour in 2010, and now that Ive been out for a bit I found I miss running about playing silly bugger in the woods. I`m on CGN with the same name.

Hi all, new to airsoft but I have been into milsim style paintball for a few years. To all the former and current military members on the forum, thanks for your service. I am also a former U.S. Army active duty communications specialist 2002-2006 with a tour to iraq in 04/05. Finished off my contract and moved up to the tech hub in Waterloo, ON. I was one of two commo guys in my unit so i was always working the TOC and keeping the important stuff running so my G.I. Joe fun stuff was limited to training. I enjoy running around in the woods and solid patrols / tactics whether it's airsoft or paintball. I will be attending my first airsoft event at PRZ for operation dragonfly coming up on Nov 2nd and will be a regular at the Covert Ops field in Cambridge. See you all out on the field

Hi. I'm a student at Western University looking to get into the sport. Have a few buddies who play weekly at a church and I'm looking forward to getting more involved with it.

Hey everyone. My name's Sarah. I'm 24. I'm from the US, but I am currently doing my masters in Library Science at Western (started in Sept), and I plan on getting PR when I'm done since my finacee is Canadian, so I figured I'd check out the Canadian airsoft community.

I got into airsoft after watching the YouTube series Modern War Gear Solid and hanging out with the guys who made it and thinking it would be fun to try. I rented a gun my first game, my battery died, my mag jammed, but I loved every second of it, and bought my first gun soon after, joined a team, and went to games whenever I could.

Unfortunately, I'm a broke grad student, and since I can't get my guns over the border, I'm stuck with a spring Crosman rifle and pistol until I save some money. However, I'm excited to play again! At least I have all my gear!

Greetings folks!

Another airsoft player signing up from the GTA! I have been out a few times and am hooked! My first game I really had my ass handed to me, but it's only motivating me to improve. Filling out my profile now, but I am a 26 year old, so some might say I started late, but regardless I can't wait to get back out there! I look forward to being a part of the community.

Hey, Hello everyone. I'm just getting into Airsoft, don't have a gun yet unless you consider a Canadian tire spring pistol as a starting point. Turns out I live right around the corner from a Airsoft shop and I didn't even know. I want to get into this new sport, I have done allot of paint ball back in Ottawa, and really enjoyed it. Since moving to Toronto, I've been looking to join some activity, Airsoft looks like it will be allot of fun. I've been shooting targets in the garage with the pistol, or trying to hit other BB's I've shot on the floor. I'm figuring there has to be much more to the sport. I don't know much about airsoft, and I apologize in advance for all the newbie questions I'm going to ask. I'm looking forward to being part of this community.

Hi everyone, new to airsoft. Have been playing paintball for a year, like to add airsoft to the mix. Still not sure where to play except some paintball fields and ultimate airsoft. Thinking of buying a gun, VFC 417, GG 416, or TM 416?

Hey everyone, my names Reagan. I'm 15 and thinking about getting into airsoft next summer at frontline in St. John's, Newfoundland. My friends and I have played airsoft on our own time in a woods near our town using walmart spring guns (lol, they get the job done) for about 2 years now, and I was hooked instantly. I am considering saving for a good rifle in the $200-$300 dollar range next spring and am looking forward to participating in the community. I'll also apologize beforehand for any mistakes I make on here.

Hi all,
My name is Aaron, I'm 26, I live in Abbotsford, BC. I do undercover security work.. don't let your imaginations run wild, it's probably not what you think. When I was younger I was really into paintball, and still occasionally do go. I've always been interested to try out airsoft. I figured now is as good a time as any, so I registered on here. Looks like there is a ton of great people and info for me on this forum!
