New to being an Airsoft Marksman?

Here are a couple quick guidelines to remember.

-"First shot, Second shot, Last shot". This is a classic sniper technique that will save your ass one day in the field. Take your three shots then relocate.

-"What you think is a good hide, isn't". Avoid fallen logs, and shooting from trees. The exposure off the side of top of your cover is only an odd shape to the human eyes. This is called "Tree Cancer". Cliche hides are nothing but a dead giveaway to a trained Countersniper.

-"Guerrilla Warfare". Read every article you can find about it, because it just may be a good friend.

-"Spotters". Are unnecessary in Airsoft, they are just another person to give away your position.

-"Play it smart". Make sure you don't lose sight of your enemy and get yourself surrounded, always keep to the outside of firezones for a far flank, your long range will come in handy.

Seeing as your a Brit, and from Peterborough, your first stop should be to go to the Fire Support shop, Linky to website They can show you all the guns you will ever want to own and several you probably don't ;) I can personally recommend them as myself plus the rest of the team buy all our gear from them.
Next up, go and play at their Woodland site, and if you can contact a guy who is known on the forums as DOA DRAVEN, he snipes with a sub 350fps G36k and he also make the best G suits I have ever seen, he is part of a 5>6 man team that do nothing but snipe, he'd be a great man to ask questions, if not, I'm always here, and just so you know Los Lobos visit Peterborough at least 3 times a year so we may well meet very soon ;)
To get registered to buy a RIF you need to register at a site and play there 3 times within 2 months to get your UKARA number and once you have that you can then buy as many RIFs as you want, be aware though that a registration number only lasts for 12 months, after that you have to do it all again. You could of coarse just buy a "2Tone" gun and cover it in camo tape, all you need to be is 18 to buy one of these.

Hope this helps, oh, and welcome to the boards
