Now I don't normally mind the odd airsofter, or the reenactor. It's a hobby and the latter has a historical value.

But how far is too far?

I give you the "TWATS". Yes they even admit to it themselves. However, upon further reading it appears to stand for "TACTICAL WEAPONS ASSAULT TEAM SPECIALISTS", of course.

I'm told several of them are ACF leaders - hence the plentiful use of 95's, berets, helmets etc and their hard on for the SA80.

As I've pointed out on a previous post our local AirSofters raised over £1,000 for H4H at Hythe Ranges Open Day.

They don't harm anyone and it keeps them off the streets.

Live and Let Live!!

Ditto. :)

However I do have a simple question:

What the fuck does airsoft consist of?

Aside from them putting money together for H4H, it just looks like pointless mincing about to me.

They rent Dry Training Areas from the MOD and war game. Bearing in mind, you have to have a CRB check before you can go on MOD land as a civvie but there is no shortage, they have to do it on a first come, first served. I've never done it, but it does look like fun, bit like paintballing. At Hythe, the general public loved it!!

And yes, she could polish my barrel anytime.

I fancy giving airsoft a go. It looks like a laugh. A little sad if you're a 1st class geek, but you get them in all walks of life.

It looks like it could be a lot of fun actually. It's just a shame that an enjoyable game is spoiled by a bunch of adults playing army dress up. I it wasn't for the guys who take the military imitation a bit too far then it would be a perfectly normal game like any other.

A friend took me to one of these matches and once you get over the amount people spen on a toy and all the C95 it really was rather enjoyable, even if you get moaned at for wearing jeans and a tshirt. Not something id want to spend a great deal on though but worth it.

Get a few throbbers there too but alas it is the same in all walks of life

Ive never had a go myself but know quite a few ex Army and ex Marines who partake, cant really see its a problem at least its out doors and looks like its all done responsibly. What would you rather them do Scavenger play on Playstations and Xbox or get a bit of fresh air??????

Bipod feet (2 of), laser designator, lamp and scope. Not really excessive.

Love the bar/nissen hut thing.

Edited to add:

This weekend, I had my inaugural meeting and AGM of my new rifle club. Present at this event were (in .22 semi-auto live):


Spikes Tactical AR Platform in .22 semi-auto with Eotech holo-sight plus snap-flip Combat open sights and all the frilly bits you can see in this stock photo. Person carrying was ex-forces.


Ruger SR-22, .22 semi-auto. Person carrying was ex-forces.


GSG-5 .22 semi-auto

Well, the question is, if you can have this sort of stuff live, and you're over 18, and you have cleared land . . . . . airsoft isn't quite as good!

I'll admit I was into a bit of airsoft when I was a teenager (long time ago now) and went a few times to a place in London. I had an old pair of CS95 and some boots, where as some guys where fully dressed up like some US Spec Ops with patches et al. It was pretty ridiculous and these guys clearly didn't have girlfriends and still lived with mum.

I grew out of it though and it was far too expensive when I thought about it.
