Buying your first gun - Read here first
« on: August 06, 2015, 06:59:12 PM »
For new players to the sport, Airsoft Hawkes Bay highly recommend buying your first gun from a New Zealand retailer. Buying from a New Zealand retailer can be a bit more expensive, but will get you a gun a lot faster. You should also get a warranty and be covered by the consumer guarantees act.

Because you are now required to get a permit to import guns from outside of the country, it can take a very long time to get guns from over seas, sometimes up to 6 weeks just to get a permit. This means you will have to pay to rent a club gun for a lot longer, adding to the cost anyway...

The main NZ retailer is www.asgc.co.nz

We also recommend asking for advice from our membership, and doing some research yourself. Feel free to create a thread on the forums to post links to the guns you might want and ask for advice.

AEG's are a good solid start and we would definitely recommend that for a starter.

Once you have a good AEG primary you can start looking at gas pistol side arms, or if you want a different type of primary later you could look at spring sniper rifles, or gas rifles
