Airsoft Stag Do
Many people who are heading off on a stag do see Airsoft and paintball as the same kettle of fish, just with different ammo.
They couldn’t be more mistaken!
Airsoft is the closest you’re going to get to a full-on military experience short of joining up and taking a tour of some war-infested hellhole where it’s so hot even the cockroaches are sweating.
Luckily, this isn’t Afghanistan, this is Airsoft located on the outskirts of Edinburgh.
Much more civilised. Airsoft is a great activity for getting a group of chaps or chapettes who perhaps aren’t too familiar with eachother to really get to know eachother, as the objective-based missions you’ll be facing require serious teamwork.
Otherwise you’ll end up with more pinprick bruises than someone who’s just insulted a butch hedgehog’s mum.
This’ll be great for those looking for a budget option – paintball may seem cheap, but the extra ammo is more expensive when compared to airsoft.
Unless you’re a spray’n’pray kinda guy, 3000 BB’s will last you a good amount of the day. Another 3000 pellets can be purchased on site for just £7. Lock’n’load, maggots!
You’ll play a variety of team-based objective games, designed to challenge your inner tactician, beginning with a warm-up, simple game of capturing an enemy fort.
Later in the day, there will be tank objectives, sabotage missions, capture the flag games and headquarters-type scenarios.
The marshals will arrange the day’s games as they see fit for your skill level.
