    I dont play airsoft but love the guns, very accurate replicas good buzz for collecting and plinking,
    Being in my earlyish thirties I wanted an air gun very soon after my couple of airsoft purchases , joined a gun club and instead of airgun got a real one, then another, licencing wasnt too difficult..:)

    So question to all you guys , did many of you feel the lure to join a gun club and enjoy the format of firing /eventually licencing and purchasing real guns?

    In a way yes, I was interested in real steel before I started airsoft but the airsofting made me get into it properly. The airsoft has become secondary to the rs now:P It's still money coming out of my pocket so no change really:pac:

    For me it is two very different worlds.

    Airsoft allows me to amass a collection of guns that I would otherwise be unable to afford to own, or legally own at least. This is a huge attraction for me personally speaking.

    I would be interested in RS shooting, but realistically a large part of the attraction for airsoft for me is the fact I can shoot my friends, and not maim them (and not just cause I've a bad shot :D)
