About The Game

At sites a guns speed is usually checked and is measured in in feet per second (FPS). Different sites allow a different  amount of FPS and it may differ from Country to Country. A gun over the limit will  not be allowed to be used and there are very strict rules governing the velocity.In Britain some most airsoft guns are classified as realistic imitation firearms. A person wishing to buy one of these guns must have a UKARA license and this can be obtained by playing at an Airsoft site a number of times  in a set time. The player will then be registered and given a number. Once he is registered then they can buy the realistic guns. They must of course be over 18. Blue guns can be purchased without a license or a realistic one can be painted for you. Most UK airsoft sites and retailers participate in the (UKARA) registration and here at ADVENTURE1 we check all details before you make a purchase. 

How it is played.


Airsoft is a team shooting sport in which players shoot at the opposite side with 9mm plastic BB'S or pellets.
Airsoft is similar to paint ball with a few major differences.Pellets are used in the airsoft games rather than paint so an element of trust is involved and cheating is frowned upon. Another difference to paint-ball is that the  guns are magazine-fed from the bottom, with rifles usually powered by batteries  and pistols charged with gas some co2 capsules are used. The guns can be very realistic in their design. This tends to make them more fun as they look like the real deal.Game-play varies but often they take the form of short-term skirmishes, close quarter fights and military style reenactment scenarios.They are played in indoor and outdoors and there are many sites dotted around the country. Call us for information/ 0141 353 3788.Players go to great lengths to copy the tactical equipment  used by the military or SWAT teams.

Safety.

Safety is very important in games and is taken very seriously. No one is allowed to play without having proper eye protection.Lots of players wear face masks to prevent the face being hit by pellets. Gloves and other pieces of kit can be worn but the eyes are the most important part of the body to be protected. Make sure you buy proper eye protection. We recommend Bolle Tactical range of safety glasses. The raider kit is the one issued to the Scottish Police Fire arms Unit.

Airsoft Pellets.

Airsoft guns fire round plastic pellets or BB'S. The most common  size being .20g to .30g and some up to .40g for snipers.
Pellets are usually bought in amounts from 2500 to 5,000 and are usually 6mm in diameter. Biodegradable pellets are one of the most popular pellets sold due to the short life span and does not leave a trace. Pellets can be more round that others and the bottles
are usually marked with the tolerance + or -  and most are 100th of a millimeter but some are 1000th part tolerance.
