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.

I'm new to the forums, and this is because I want to become a Sniper in Airsoft.

In the past I have owned an electric powered G36c and a fairly useless, and powerless air powered Desert Eagle. I am now turning my attentions to Sniping. I am not necessarily bothered of the Sniper I purchase, because at first I need to find some affordable weapons, could anyone direct me to some useful websites?

And are there any requirements needed in order to play Airsoft in the UK? Like certifications etc. I am a member of the Air Training Corps and have Weapon Handling Training on .22, does this contribute to the allowance of me purchasing and using gas/electric powered airsoft weaponry.

If you could help, this would be great thanks.
