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.


Feature Supplier – ASG Will

Today we're bringing you news on what another one of our suppliers runs with on game-day! Today we are happy to introduce you to Will Greenwood, the UK and ROI manager of ASG.

Despite how busy Will is, running up and down the country, he is a frequent Airsofter who plays every week! So let's spill the beans and show you what he runs and guns with on a weekend.

The Gear:

100% a gear-whore, Will definitely does not run cheap. Replicating a UKSF appearance he's kitted up in Guccigear literally from head to toe.

Will's head setup is an OPS Core Maritime with Platatac Helmet Cover, Counterweight Pouch, Helstar 6 IR Light, V-Light and Peltor XP headset. His chosen eye pro is another Gucci pair of Oakley Tombstone Glasses and then an Arcteryx Balaclava to get rid of the sharp sting of BB hit and finish the menacing look.

Moving down his base layer is a Crye Precision (you will be seeing more of that brand...) Black UBAC underneath a JPC rig decorated in Blue Force Gear, triple front pouch. On the rear is another Blue Force Utility pouch.

Along with the JPC rig, Will runs a Crye Precision MRB belt with Blue Force Gear Double and Medical pouch setup. Lastly, for when he chooses to rock a pistol, a Safariland Holster is equipped on the hip of the belt platform.

Then to finish it off, whats more Gucci than a set of 5.11 Combat Jeans and Solomon boots? Incredibly hard-wearing, but Will's kit does come in at a very hefty price tag.

The Gun:

Being responsible for the sale of ASG within the UK and ROI, Will has access to the best ASG offer! Will's beloved is the ASG EVO, with the ability to choose from any in the series, today Will is featuring his CQB setup.

Topped off with a Sight Mark Micro Red dot, Will is able to transition and lock onto multiple targets with ease and speed.

Being the 2018 model, the EVO is completely standard! Will just makes sure to run enough magazines for the game-day utilising his front Blue Force pouches on the JPC rig.

Whilst Will was here we also gave him a little grilling to find out more about who he is and his Airsoft experience. You can check it out here:
