Airsoft is a military simulation sport which originated in Japan in the 80s.
Relatively new to Ireland, it is a primarily recreational activity where replica firearms shooting plastic rounds are used for gaming scenarios
or professional training porposes (Military simulations and police training).
Combat situations on the battlefield often involve the use of common military tactics to achieve the objectives set in each game...
and just like the real thing...you can be "killed" once "hit" by another players fire.
Airsoft is a Game Of Honour... Players are expected to uphold a code of Honour...basically Take your Hits.
No more dangerous than any other activity which requires a higher level of physical exertion.
Proper footwear is recommended and ,as with most accidents, if its predictable, its preventable.
The most important thing to bring with you onto the field is common sense.
Of course, being shot at always has its dangers but we promote safe game play above all else and do not condone aggressive behavior.
Eye protection Is the most important piece of kit you will play with and it must be respected...
Keep it on (over your eyes!!) at all times and it will eliminate that kind of nasty accident.
An Open Mind and a Positive Attitude are Essential.
We promote the Serious Fun Aspect in gameplay. Play Hard and Fast but try to keep a sense of Fair-Play about your Game.
