Looks like a few old heads coming back to the sport.

Also there's a site in the city centre now which looks to be good.

I've a mate who's gotten mad into it and is trying to convince me to hit a site with him this month.

Time to dust off the FAL. Hasn't been used since approx 2008

Great to see you considering a return!! I haven’t gamed in the last 18 months but can’t bring myself to selling the last of the gear.
Would be great to get out for a game sometime.
Think Kiwi is located close to your new neck of the woods - but mainly into Drones these days.
Catch up soon !!

Jaysus... everyone is coming out of the wood work now!

We finally bought a place where I’ve room for gear again - after 10 years in Sandymount we’ve moved outside Dublin. The upside is having space for all my gear, which was in storage for the last 4 years or so. It was mad unpacking all the aegs and kit!

Aido/Lar - where are ye getting out these days?

Not getting out gaming at all Kev. Selling a lot of the kit to fund other new toys (bikes).

Played my first game in ten years yesterday at Spec Ops - can't believe how many folks were there, was amazing. The site is fantastic.

Brought along my old trusty King Arms FAL (SG Airsoft got it firing again, has been sitting stored away for over a decade!)

Also took my KSC G19 along which hasn't been fired in about the same amount of time. Thought all the seals would be gone on the mag but it also ran absolutely perfectly.

Main thing which didn't work quite as ten years ago was me, my legs are bloody knackared today from all the running

That'd be great craic! I'm thinking about hitting Spec Ops in Roundwood at least once a month if you guys are ever about?

Get yourself a high torque motor and 13:1 gears the Fal will fly ,look into lipo batteries if you haven't already it what we all run now a days ,

Spec ops might be an idea it's been a while since I was out that way
