So you've tried paintball and you enjoyed it, apart from being charged an arm and a leg for paintballs! But if you want a little more, then Airsoft is the right place to be! So what is Airsoft? Well, Airsoft is a relatively new sport, that is similar in many respects to paintball but with a few key differences. Most importantly is the use of airsoft guns that are basically sport grade versions of the little plastic bb guns you had as a kid. Airsoft guns fire round plastic pellets or "bbs" at low velocities and have a far greater range and accuracy than paintball guns as well as looking far more realistic. While paintball guns are infamous for causing bruises Airsoft rounds hold a thirteenth of the kinetic energy meaning a thirteenth of the pain! Airsoft games or "skirmishes" take place in a huge variety of different sites though we will mainly be visiting the Dragon Valley site which is situated on a working MOD army base and other sites around Bristol. All the kit you need, such as weapons, tactical wear, safety equipemnt etc will be provided by the society so dont worry about having to spend a load of money on equipment just yet! We hope to eventually expand to visit more and more sites around the UK, play other university teams across Wales and the South West of England and we are looking forward to our first match against UWE's Airsoft team!
