    Ive been interested in airsoft of a long time but not really sure what to do next?

    Ive seen's loads of stores online selling rifles etc..

    Is their clubs or how do you take part in the games etc?

    Seen some stuff on Facebook and the like but very much a red arse when it comes to this.. Looks like good opportunity for fitness too :)

    How are you scored or how does it work?

    Im ex Military and based in North Dublin..

    First, go to a site, get a rental and see if you actually like it. Some people are collectors, some love to skirmish, some like just having tinkering with them.

    If you like it no matter what path you chose to go with you mew found hobby buy a AEG (personally think it is the best choice for a beginner) a battery, bb's and most important eye Pro, look of your ex army in all liklihood you like guns ha, take yourself to a site and play. You gradually build from that then, you start getting in to Tac gear, clothing, a sidearm etc, dont blow all your cash on everything only for you to realise that airsoft is not for you two months down the road with a grand worth of equipment sitting idol.

    Find a site close to you, go for the day, talk to the players for advice etc and just enjoy yourself.
