    man with airsoft gun indoors

Although we are fortunate enough to have some crisp and clear days in winter, they are often few and far between, so indoor sites can offer a great alternative, whatever the weather. No matter where you are in the UK, you’ll likely not be far from your closest indoor airsoft location, with many venues available up and down the country. Most will be located closeby to larger cities, but not always. Check online and with local airsoft forums as some of our favourite sites were shared with us by word of mouth; the old fashioned way!

  • Choosing the Right Air Pistol for Pest Control

    Pest Control with a Handgun

    With summer pretty much upon us, we are entering the prime season for pests. For people that own large areas of land and that need to keep pests under control, air pistols can be a valuable investment for both effectively and humanely managing the problem. Although we always recommend using the highest power air weapon possible (it’s not just a numbers thing, rifles are more accurate over longer distances and a higher power gives you a better chance of a humane kill, which should always be your goal in pest control) and air rifles can offer more power (a legal limit of 12ft lb limit), this can often be seen as overkill, or be unsuitable for the task. With the pellets often travelling through the target - without a suitable backstop, this can reduce the legality. Therefore, in this article, we take a look at some of the best air pistol options for pest control.

  • 3-Gun Nation Set Up Airsoft & Air Gun Divisions

    It is well known that air guns, airsoft rifles and airsoft pistols are excellent training aids. They have been used by military services across the world for mock purposes, due to being cheaper and safer than live firearms. Alongside this, they have also been used to help juniors transition into competitive shooting at a point when they are too young to handle firearms.

    With this in mind, American-based 3-Gun Nation (3GN) have created and added two new divisions to their already extensive back catalogue – Air Gun and Airsoft divisions. It is called 3-Gun due to their use of three different firearms in the training and competitions; pistol, rifle and shotgun. Continue reading
