Airsoft Ranch pays us a visit!


Airsoft Ranch who? For those who may not have seen the name floating on social media yet or even come across their website, Airsoft Ranch is a relatively new team of 10 people dedicated to site reviews, informational guides and a WIKI source for all things Airsoft in the UK.

Airsoft Ranch is only 11 months old and soon celebrating their 1st year of internet birth! The Ranch Team consists of a mixed bag of active Airsofters who can often be seen at Hardline Airsoft, Invasion Airsoft and Wolfgang when not touring the country trying out new locations.

We recently had a visit from three of the guys who took advantage of spending a full day checking out everything we had to offer and also partnered up with ourselves to produce their first YouTube video featuring the hugely popular Army Armament - Taran Tactical JW3 GBB Pistol.

Along with being film stars for the day, we also snapped a few photos of two of the players to show you what they run and gun with. We will be posting a Feature Friday blog dedicated to two of their members next week on the 22nd of November.

So let's get to it, Airsoft Ranch take it away with your review of the Army Armament - Taran Tactical JW3 GBB Pistol:

As mentioned in the video, they have produced a full write up a review of the pistol which can be found here on their official website.

If you like what you have seen in the video and Airsoft Ranch's official blog review and fancy your own JW3 pistol, then check it out here.

If you also fancy working with ourselves on any future news, video content and more then drop us an email to karl@patrolbase.co.uk

 


Back To Basics Video Guides

We've decided to introduce a new video series, we're going back to basics and showing the newcomers to Arisofters (and those who thought they knew everything) the must-know basics. We're going to cover topics including how to connect your batteries to your Airsoft guns, the different types of Airsoft gas, explanation of power limits and more!

We've so far published two videos, the first was about battery connection types and safe use.

Our more recent video is presenting the difference between the many Airsoft gasses available on the market, and what may be the right choice for you.

We are uploading this series of videos to our YouTube, Facebook and Instagram TV channels. Be sure to subscribe to all so you don't miss out on the updates, and see if you really did know everything there was to know about Airsoft.


Staff Feature Friday – Joe

Today we're bringing you another of our customer service reps, Joe! He's been here for just over a year and a half but prior to that, he's had 2 years Airsoft experience.

A previous addict of zombie survival experience work, Joe took the plunge and started to experience Airsoft in the great outdoors. Originally kitted out with a NUPROL - Delta Freedom Fighter, since working at Patrol Base almost a week later after starting, Joe took the plunge and purchased an ASG - CZ Scorpion EVO 3 A1. Why the EVO? Joe convinced himself it would be the last rifle that he'd ever have to buy... little did Joe realise the addiction of Airsoft. He's since continued to purchase additional pistols, shotguns, a sniper rifle and is now looking at KRYTAC... it's a never-ending vicious but enjoyable cycle.

Being a fan of the woodland Airsoft scene more than CQB, Joe still remains a lightweight running and gunner but a lefty! A benefit but can also be a little hindrance to some scenarios. A lot of people are not used to flanking around an object left-handed and are often taken out first. Joe can get that edge on the enemy and assist other team members on left flank tactics.

Joe's gear is highly practical, affordable and a mix of gear from ourselves and everyday clothing including his highly fashionable H&M cargo grey trousers. Starting from the head down Joe wears:

With Joe's EVO being roughly 12 months old now, he's not had any drama but has pursued a bit of an upgrade by changing the following:

  • Upgraded and short stroked gear set
  • Uprated piston (also short stroked)

Literally, everything else is standard other than the accessories which include:

As for his currently secondary (the go-to option), Joe is rocking an Armourer Works - Hi-Capa fitted with a Nextech - Pistol torch and is at home in a NUPROL - Hi-Capa Retention Holster.

Like most of Joe's Airsoft weapons, he really doesn't go to town chasing numbers like some of our staff members. If you want to check out more of Joe's feature you need to head on over to our Instagram account.
