Airsofting. It’s not for airsofties

Airsofting is a fun-filled day for the whole family or just by yourself. Whether you’re 13 or 50 it doesn’t matter; it’s still a lot of fun.

 Airsofting is the same experience as paintballing, but there’s a difference. This is that in paintballing they shoot (you guessed it) gas-propelled paint, but in airsoft we shoot 6mm BB’s (plastic pellets) which are nearly the same size as a ball-bearing.

 If you’ve played Call of Duty or Battlefield and would like to have the same experience without being (sort of) killed, this is perfect for YOU!

 If you live in Flintshire, one of the closest places is Alpha 55 at Halkyn. To find out more follow this link to their website:

 This is one of the best sites, most probably the best airsoft site I’ve been to and for such a cheap price, only £20 for all day including lunch, kit hire (gun, face protection and the 2 piece oversuit).

 If you’re interested in which type of gun you will be given, there are three choices: the AK47 BSpetsnaz, the AK47 and the G36C. You may also use your own gun if you wish but the rules are if you’re under 18 you must have a two tone gun (a gun which doesn’t look like a real one, for legal reasons) or use their own.


If you are older you can use the non two tone replicas. If you own a BB/Airsoft sniper rifle and the FPS (feet per second) is over 400 you must be at least 30 metres away when shooting .This is for yours and your opponents’ safety.

 Hope to see you airsofting soon!
