  • Becoming a Master Sniper | Tips for Airsoft

    Sniper looking across the lake

    The role of the sniper on the airsoft battlefield is perhaps the one with the highest ‘cool factor’. This is in part due to the increased publicity and media focus on the people that inhabit the role as their daily lives, working for the military and other armed forces. Film heroes like Bob Lee Swagger in Shooter and Chris Kyle in American Sniper, along with the Call Of Duty and Battlefield video game franchises have captured imaginations worldwide and allowed everyone to think that they could be the next best marksman. This could not be further from the truth. The harsh reality is that the role of the sniper is one of dedication, training and years of hard work, and this is similarly true for the airsoft world.

  • How to Avoid Damage in Airsoft

    Bandaging arm

    Pain is part of the game when it comes to airsoft – what else would you expect when firing BB bullets from high powered air guns at each other? Plus, problems with non-hit taking means you don’t want to eliminate the pain, as failure to feel hits is unintentionally cheating.

  • What Can 3D Printing Bring to the Airsoft Community?

    3D printer printing

    It’s interesting to think about how 3D printing could impact the airsoft world, especially when you consider that 3D printing is now more advanced than when it was popularised in 2011. It has been utilised in many different ways, one of which was for military use when creating concrete barracks for the Marines. This was a huge time-saver, with the project being printed in only two days and serving as a base capable of resisting enemy fire. Particularly impressive when compared to the self-built options by the Marines, which can take substantially longer, require a lot more manpower and are typically made from materials that can’t compare to the concrete 3D printed alternative.

  • A Journey Into the World of Camouflage

    Statue of Boudica

    You can step back in time and see legendary war heroes like Boudica depicted by artists as wearing brightly coloured, flowing gowns. Not exactly the kind of kit you’d expect a real soldier to wear – although there are also renditions of her wearing armour as she went into battle riding her horse-drawn chariot. The queen of the British Celtic Iceni tribe led an uprising against occupying Roman Empire forces in AD 60 or 61, and although reputedly something of a mean dame, she didn’t die in battle but – supposedly – from poisoning herself.

  • The History of the Classic American BB Gun

    On the timeline of guns, the classic American BB gun is a comparative newcomer when you consider the first recorded use of a firearm was in 1364.

    The BB gun arrived on the scene in 1886, some 500 years later and was a far cry from the weapons that had to be fired by igniting gunpowder with a candle wick.

  • 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
