The EDGI 6.01mm Precision Barrel is the tightest bore barrel available and the only choice for players looking for the best possible accuracy and range. Also, the new Plastic MK5 Blow Back from G&G is extremely realistic and a phenomenal value. Lastly, JG is now producing full metal guns; we have the M4A1 and the S-system now available.

Yes, that’s right. Josh at Gunman has pulled off a bit of a coup this summer. After his success with Red Mist one last year, Gunman Airsoft have managed to land not one but three seperate events this late summer – autumn at the vast MOD STANTA site in Norfolk.
Having attended the previous Red Mist event at the Eastmere Village section of the site and the practice weekender for Red Mist 2, I can heartily recommend Gunman Events as being some of the most enjoyable around – and for me they are unparalled in enjoyment among any of the mil / film sim events I have participated in. I travel 300 miles each time, so you can’t say fairer than that as a recommendation!
Free Kit Hire
For those of you worried about getting kit together for any of these game, Gunman also offers free kit hire for these events, meaning there’s no need to scour fleabay for obscure kit – unless you’re like me and like that sort of thing. ;)
For more information click on a banner to be taken to each event’s site, or visit the Gunman Airsoft subforum here.
As you are aware I started a thread recently regarding the very real possibility of both airgunning and airsoft being banned in Scotland.
There is a lot going on in the Scottish airgun community currently to oppose this proposed change in law and BASC is also heavily involved.
Currently there are very mixed messages coming from the SNP government regarding their intentions regarding this matter, initially after discussion with BASC the SNP promised there would not be an outright ban on airguns in Scotland.
Recently however they have been suggesting otherwise and it appears they are aiming for a complete blanket ban. BASC have been in contact with the SNP over the past few days and they have again stated that a complete ban is not their intention and they have apparently said that airguns will be allowed for the use of vermin control or recognised sporting events.
Unfortunately the question of airsoft has not been made clear in this entire debacle.
As far as the SNP are concerned airsoft and airguns are all one thing, I am very worried that they will not recognise airsoft skirmishing as one of their "recognised sporting events" and I have the feeling when they say this they are referring to airgun sports such as Hunter Field Target.
Tonight a petition was posted at the No.10 website calling for Westminster to regain control of firearm law and not allow the Scottish Government to destroy our sport.
Naturally I am a cynic when it comes to politics but at this stage I feel we must do anything we can to prevent this potential change in law to occur.
Obviously this is a potentially serious matter for our sport so I would be extremely grateful to you if you could assist in this campaign.
Kind regards and best wishes,
