    Galway is the only main county that does not have an airsoft camp.

    There's a great airsoft shop in Galway but no airsoft camp.

    Any chance someone in Galway will start an airsoft camp?, great profit would be made... or contact galwayairsoftsupplies.com ?

    Buying land:
    - You would not have to purchase the land, you could rent it out.
    - If you know a farmer or someone that has a nice forest/couple of fields/etc that he does not use you could make a deal with him, whatever amount of money you make charging the people in he gets 50%.

    The other thing is, after time you would start to make a really good profit, start selling airsoft guns,ammo,etc at the site.

    Yeah, but this time much more people are aware of airsoft and some marketing and advertising of the next Airsoft camp in Galway can be done too.

    Its not that simple as you will need;
    - garda clearance
    - planning permission
    - insurance
    - possibly,first aiders on site.
    - some sort of facilities ie toilets, changing areas, battery charging ect

    Its not just a case of make a deal with a farmer and sit inside the gate with a biscuit tin to collect monies when the players turn up.

    If it was so easy
    a) why hasn't someone else done it?
    b) why don't you do it?

    I have done the numbers on airsoft sites. In short - don't gave up the day job.
