Getting Back into Airsoft.

Recommended Posts

First post, but figuredI needed to jump into a forum to get myself back into the sport mentally.

Used to play for about 10 years, and took a break when I moved house,  Around that time it seemed most sites and forums etc seemed to head to facebook and all that annoying , 3 years later, the bug has started itching again! Perhaps this is one of those infections that is incurable eh?

My only concern is that while myself and my partner never sold our gear and guns... I do worry that its a bit outdated now. A few searches around the usual stores shows there's been some evolution. I feel like a bit of a time traveler!  Will I get laughed at that my gats are covered in cobwebs? :D (I wonder if I still remember how to gearbox?)

So in summary, did I miss much? Also Hi.

In 3 years?  I feel like at any given time in airsoft's existence 3 years isn't that much, stuff evolves very slightly but when you bear in mind a plastic legacy TM AEG is still more than perfectly usable to play the game it puts things in to perspective.

Most people still use AEGs, the haven't really changed in any meaningful way in the last 3 years. You can still be entirely competitive with a pretty ancient AEG so long as the hop is decent. Also, most of the stuff airsofters buy adds relatively little to their performance. Just get stuck in and have fun!

Got to agree here. But any eeputable brand AEG like LCT, Marui, GnG, etc; drop in quality heavy bbs and you're golden. Most of us use Lipo now-a-days. That's about it.

We had Lipo's back in the 'old days' before I stopped :P I'm not that ancient.

Will have to kick the webs off my bang sticks and see how they behave.

I'm sure someone would dust out his stock TM AEG from the last century and it will work fine, so I suggest OP do the same and #sendit before spending dollars.

VFC MP5A5 (AEG) Ares L85A2, Ares Tavor, Maruzen L96, two half completed M4s... VFC AKM (Frankenstein) uh, TM 226E1, WE G19, WE M&P Shield. I'm sure most are fine.

That is a well rounded selection. I'd add a shotgun. Even a good springer can come in handy. I have a couple that I really enjoy using as a primary every now and then for a change and make a decent back-up should your AEG for the day goes down.
