Airsoft has been around for quite a long time. However, places to play airsoft have come and gone, making it hard to know where you might be able to play. We have recently had players getting online and asking if it is okay to play airsoft with friends in their backyard. You’re not going to want to do this unless you either own a large amount of land in a unpopulated area, or you have spoken with your neighbors and local law enforcement first! Playing airsoft with replica firearms in an inappropriate area can cause a lot of trouble for you, as it may result in the police being called or worse.
As a beginner to the sport of airsoft, you must find a designated airsoft field to play at. By playing at an official airsoft field, you are insuring your safety, as a new player, and the safety of others as well. The easiest way to find an airsoft field near you is by searching the internet. Most states have a dedicated airsoft forum to let you know of nearby airsoft fields, upcoming events, and local teams. Forums are a great way to keep up to date on airsoft news and keep connected with other airsofters.
After you have located an airsoft field/arena to play at, and have all the correct protective gear that you need, here are a few tips to remember before you start playing:
• Treat ALL guns as if they are loaded.
• Never put your finger on the trigger until you are ready to fire.
• Confirm your target and what lies beyond it.
• Never point the muzzle at anything that you are not willing to shoot.
